Sail Date: November 30, 2006

This is my second tiame on the Norwegian Star. It is a beautiful ship, although it is starting to show wear, especially in the carpeting. The Spinnaker Lounge has a wonderful view of the front of the ship as it ventures forward to the next port of call. The activities in the evening in the Spinnaker were varied and great entertainment for everyone, and included an "adults only" show by Second City that was later in the evening.

Even though there are congested and poor parts of this port, the people, their lifestyle, and sites are wonderful. We toured with an independent tour operator and had the best time I have had in a port in a long time. Casa Blanca, La Flamingo Hotel, Chapel of Peace, and La Quebrada are must sees.
Don't Miss: Don't miss learning about the culture and lives of the people of this area.

This is a less developed port than the sister city of Ixtapa. Many of the people living in Zihatanejo work in the report areas of Ixtapa. We toured a coconut plantation, saw authentic roofing tiles created in a very rustic old world style, and ate lunch at a beach outdoor restrauant with local dishes. Warm, friendly city.
Don't Miss: Hand made tiles and how they create them.

Cabo is a very glitzy resort town with a beautiful marina and landscapes that you cannot find anywhere. Los Arcos is a must see and a short water taxi trip to Lover's beach is something to remember. People are friendly although the locals will talk in their native tounge so you don't know what they are saying as you pass by.
Don't Miss: Los Arcos, Land's End, Lover's beach

This is another resort town that is similar to Ixtapa, but larger. The Chapel of Guadalupe is beautiful and a must see. Our tour took us to a restrauant to cook (hand's on) authentic Mexican food like salza, tostadas, enchilladas, and such. We also had a tequilla tasting time.
Don't Miss: Walk along the ocean front and see the statues and sculptures.
