Dinner Cruise to Los Archos

Mexico is a land of timeshares and freebies... you can say, "No, gracias," but mean it! We got free tickets for the dinner cruise, and I didn't have big expectations for it. Usually the food is okay and the entertainment is bland. Stepping on the boat, we were urged to go to the top deck of the boat, where we would be able to view all the marvelous sights of the area.

We met couples in line and spent the happy hour getting to know them and where they came from. Then a woman began her narration of what we were seeing. She was very informative and amusing. The arch was breathtaking with the water splashing between it and the sea lions and amusing, but it was nothing compared to the whale play we observed. Five whales cavorted out at sea, breaching the water and blowing water through their blow holes as if to say, "Hey, aren't we cool?"

Then it was time for dinner, and though it was getting dark, everyone was loathe to leave the sight of the whales.

Dinner was delightful. The fish, shrimp, and steaks were well prepared with wonderful sauces. The veggies were crisp and tender and the dessert was chocolate. What more could we want?

Dinner was followed by graceful Flaminco dancers and guachos with bolos that whipped through the air. Time flew watching them, and it seemed a short time until we were disembarking. It had been a wonderful evening of nature, nuture, and good fun!
