The stay in Los Cabos was wonderful after an ominous beginning. Some things can start wrong and continue that way, but thankfully not the case for the wife and I. Our flight was delayed almost 5 hours Sunday. We were told the plane was struck by lightning the day before coming back from SJD. We arrived at what I believe is terminal 3 and there were around 30 to 40 timeshare hawks there. We knew to not give “eye contact” and go but was so crowded and tough to get through. There was a pretty good wait in the shuttle for some to make it out. I had expected to be in room by maybe 1pm, but it turned out to be 6pm before we settled and started looking for dinner. We had lost a whole afternoon.
The only outing from hotel planned was to take hotel shuttle from Presidente Intercontinental in San Jose to CSL to meet Geoman and Lak242 at Rips Bar Monday at 4pm. The only shuttle available that was close to the timeframe left San Jose at 4pm. I figured to be an hour late. What a ride! No need to go to Disneyworld to get a thrill. He dropped us off at Puerto Paraiso Mall at 4:20. The ride back after dark was a repeat.
Enjoyed the meeting and have picture of us with review of the Presidente in San Jose Hotel section.
Later on the marina stopped at Soloman’s to eat dinner and people watch. Wife had breaded shrimp and I had combo of breaded, coconut, and bacon wrapped shrimp. The meals were just fabulous. There was a unique dipping sauce for the coconut shrimp that was excellent. I had to remove the bacon since it was not cooked, but shrimp great with nice cocktail sauce. The meal was over $60 US with no alcohol but well worth it. The timeshare person came now which almost ruined the meal. We were left with no time relax after meal and had to move on. There are too many great places to eat and probably will not return just to avoid the sales pitch.
After walking most of the shopping area for couple of hours stopped at Senor Sweets and shared a wonderful Gelato banana split with coffee. It was a nice relaxing stop. We still had few minutes before 9:00 shuttle back and sat outside the back of the Mall on the marina and watched a pair of techno/mime entertainers. Was fun watching them interact with everyone, especially with the children. I have a picture of them also in hotel review.
The rest of the stay was an all too short a time in sun and sand. This was just one more great relaxing trip with great memories.
