The day I went to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico the current of the sea was to strong, so my day did not go to plan! I still had a good time but due the rough sea we could not go on our boat tour of the famous El Arco the natural landmark of Cabo San Lucas.
I was going on a tour to El Arco, the majestic rock formation where the waters of the Sea of Cortez meet the Pacific at Land’s End. The waves and strong ocean currents created the arch. Now it is natural landmark and iconic symbol of the area of Cabo San Lucas.
Years ago, it was used by pirates as a hiding place where they could lie in wait to ambush the merchant ships heading for the west coast.
As we could not go on the boat trip we went to hotel, famous for its panoramic views of the Bay of Cabo San Lucas. We could see the rock formation, but the view was better onboard the ship!
After the viewpoint, we went to a glass factory where they recycle glass mainly bottles to make glass wear, glass animals, Christmas decorations, vases, ashtrays, etc.
We watched as they demonstrated how they made an elephant, very similar to the way, they make Murano glass in Murano near Venice in Italy.
In the showroom, there was a glass room that I thought was the best part as it was so bright with colourful stain glass windows, bottles as windows and it had a glass mosaic floor of cactuses and the sun.
The marina of Cabo San Lucas is nice to walk around and there are many bars, restaurants and shops to stop by at.
