Half day fishing trip on the Sea of Cortez was a blast, even if we did have to rise at an ungodly hour. We witnessed an awesome sunrise as we left the Marina in San Jose del Cabo.

Ok. Here’s my disclaimer…I AM DEATHLY AFRAID OF HEIGHTS…..But, I am on a once in a lifetime vacation with my husband of 30 years and it is time to conquer my fears! So, we picked the big Kahuna of zip lining tours….7 lines, over 2 miles and quite the hike up. First thing we do after a ride halfway up the hill in a really nice van is cross over the bridge you see in the second picture below. That bridge crossing almost ended the tour for me. Winds were close to 37mph today, so it was dicey….to say the … Continue reading Zip..zip..zip, Kapalua
