Something that I really wanted to do on our cruise was snorkel. We went snorkeling at Puerto Vallarta because that was the port we had the most time at. It was a little ghetto and they didn't even have flippers for us to use, but I was happy and it was so fun.
After lunch, we walked around Puerto Vallarta. There was this cool walkway along the coast with lots of different statues and art.
Our next port was Mazatlan. It was my favorite!! The water was wonderful and warm, and there was a lot of fun stuff to see. When we got off we caught a taxi (they were these golf cart open taxis, I loved them), and went to the beach and spent most of the day there. We swam and built sand castles, and it was so fun!!
After the beach, we headed over to diver's point. We would have had no idea about this place, but my mom had printed something off about all of the ports for us before we left...thanks Mom!! There was this high cliff thing that the divers would get on and dive in between these rocks. It was so nerve wracking and cool to watch! Check it out. Sorry it's sideways...is there a way to flip it around?
Here are a couple pictures from our tour:
Our taxi driver insisted we get a picture pretending to drive his taxi
We went on a glass bottom boat ride around Cabo. At the end it dropped us off at Lover's Beach.
We saw Sea Lions on our boat ride!!
We had to take little boats back to our cruise ship. The driver let everyone sitting up front drive it for a bit. It was pretty fun!
After our cruise, on the way back to Mesquite, we drove right through San Bernadino, where Willie served his mission. Willie was able to show me around a bit, which was really cool. This was one of the apartments he lived in!
We stayed in Mesquite, rented another red box movie, had pizza, and drove back to Utah the next day. It was so hard to come back to real life. We loved our honeymoon!
