On day 5 of our cruise, we went to Puerto Vallarta.
We started off the day by eating breakfast…like always. After that, we walked onto the dock and found our tour guide, Pablo. Next, we took a kinda long, hot walk to the boat we were taking to the beaches. After that, we got on the boat and took an hour ride to the first beach. We put on our forced-to-wear life jackets and snorkel goggles. We jumped in the water but didn’t do much snorkeling. Since we didn’t want to go snorkeling, we just played on the inner-tubes and swam. In the end, we went on a banana boat! It was fun, and at the end of the ride, we flipped.
After that beach, we went back on the boat and had the sandwiches they were serving. Our next stop was a small remote fishing village called Yelapa. The sand was very coarse, and the waves were strong! My mom lost her sunglasses, my sister lost her flip-flop, but my mom found it, and my brother almost lost his crocs! THOSE WAVES!
When our time at the beach was done, we went back on the boat. Some of the crew on the boat did a crazy lip sync show. They said they were the Mexican Rolling Stones! It was sooooooo funny!!!!!!
We started off the day by eating breakfast (DUH!). After that, we walked onto the dock to the boat that would take us into the ocean. There were free drinks. We saw two sea lions and where the Pacific Ocean and The Sea of Cortez met.
After the AWESOME boat ride, we went on a bus tour through the city. Our tour guide was Irma. She was really good. We stopped at the cliff divers. The water was rough, and 5 feet deep! It was a 40-foot dive!!!!!!!! He jumped and……….LIVED! Woo-Hoo!
The cliff diver is up there.
A little look our point.
We’re on the way up.
After that, we got back on the bus and drove around the city. We stopped at one place to eat, and I got a marionette!!! I named him Jeff Bob. At the store right next to the restaurant we saw this sign:
Next, we went to the cathedral.
At the Cathedral!
Here I am
We finally ended the tour and waited to get back on the ship.
Eating in Mazatlan
Playing withe Jeff Bob.
After that, we ate at the formal dining room and saw a 70’s rock show.
YAY! We were finally off that ship, not saying it was bad, it was just nice at land. Anyway, here we were anchored right outside of Cabo San Lucas! We got off and rode the little tender boats to land.
We found our leader, and she showed us the way to Cabo Dolphins. There, we got our wristbands and put on our swimsuits. Finally, we could jump into the water! We met our dolphin that we were gonna swim with. His name was Cahall. He did many tricks. His trainer told us what to do, and Cahall would do something. One example is when we clapped, he’d clap, or try… We all got turns riding on his back which was SOOO fun!

Look at cute lil Cahall!
Getting ready to go
After we swam with Cahall, we went on a boat ride to the arches. It was really rocky, and at one point we went SUPER fast! My Grandma was so scared. It was funny. 🙂
I’m lovin it
My Grandma is scared
After the boat ride, we went to our ship and watched The Greatest Showman. We ate from the buffet while watching it and then headed to bed.
