We finally flew the coop after 4 days at the all inclusive Hyatt Ziva. Now we begin our 6-day mattress run at the Hyatt Place in Los Cabos. My original plan was to take the bus between San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and Todos Santos, but Sheldon proposed a much more comfortable mode of transport – rental car. Luckily we went with the rental car given how uncomfortably hot and humid it is down here.
Our first destination – Todos Santos, a small artist enclave located on the southwestern coast of Baja California Sur. First order of business was lunch at Marisco El Compa Chava.
Afterwards, unbeknownst to us, Sheldon drove us to Punta Lobos beach looking for a particular hiking trail. I just assumed we were checking out a beach. As I opened the car door, I was hit by an overpowering fishy smell. “What an odd beach to visit”, I thought to myself, but quickly forgot about it when I caught a glimpse of Magnificent Frigate birds flying overhead near the water.
I was so busy admiring the pelicans that I had failed to register all the trucks and pangas on the beach.
Luckily, we never located the hiking trail. To be fair we really didn’t try very hard. As much as I like hiking, I draw the line when the temperature tops 75°F. When we couldn’t take the heat on the beach anymore, we made our way back into town.
