Review summary

I’m really not a good candidate for reference. This type of vacation was never on my list and isn’t my cup of tea. I’m more of a hit the ground and explore nature at my own leisure. Did not like being on a floating town with no escape. Too expensive also. I camp on the islands of Hawaii for less money and am the Captain of my own ship.

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

1 out of 5
Typical tourist gauntlet of people hawking their wares in your face. Have to be rude to make them leave you alone. Bathroom accessibility and toilet paper just so tourist unfriendly.

Mazatlan, Mexico Did not visit port

Bad taste from from Cabo port

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

5 out of 5
Did not visit town so we bypassed the peddlers. Went straight to excursion for all day wonderful adventure.
