Riu Santa Fe. Cabo San Lucas.

A sunny day at Riu Santa Fe

It was a bright and windy day (sorry Snoopy: I know you always start your stories with “It was a dark and stormy night…”) and we slept in this morning. Getting out around 9:00 we headed over to the plaza for breakfast. We have usually stopped at the Sports Bar, which is open long hours and offers coffee and pastries and rolls in addition to the bar drinks, but today we decided to have a “proper breakfast” of scrambled eggs, sausage, and bacon.

Where the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) meets the Pacific Ocean – that’s at the point of Baja California and Cabo. And the most famous rock formation at that junction is The Arch, featured in various boat tours from Los Cabos. The Sea of Cortez is the long narrow bay separating Baja California from the mainland of Mexico. Today we took a tour in a glass bottom boat out of the harbor at San Lucas that cruised around the rock formations in that area and passed briefly into the Pacific. Continue reading The Arch.

Our new room is in Building 6. A MUCH shorter walk to everything.

When we returned from the pool this afternoon we had no electrical power in the room – as in lights and outlets. But everything was working when we left an hour and a half before. After a time I called the office and they told me to check the master switch to the left of the door. I went over in that area and found a breaker panel and I exercised the master switch a couple of times. No change. I found that the air conditioning was working, but nothing else in the room. I called back and they said they would send someone over. After a half hour or so and no one showed up, I called again and was told to do the same thing. No change. I called back and they said someone would be there in 10 minutes. Continue reading Master switch? Laid back by the pool time. All inclusive.

Vidanta cancelled

Call it buyer’s remorse or whatever, this morning we went to The Mayan over in San Jose de Cabo and cancelled our purchase of their plan. I knew last night that it was not what we needed and it bothered me all night. This morning Elaine agreed so I called our sales rep, Osiris, and told her. She said to come over to get it done.
