|Back to work :(|
* If you fly out of MSP, you must start your vacation with breakfast and a mimosa with fresh orange juice at Ike's (followed by wine on the plane and mini corona's to the resort, of course).
* We took a pirate ship sunset booze cruise and became bff's with some of the pirates!
* When we were done with the pirate ship we wandered the marina negotiating the best price for whale watching. 5 for $100 was our asking price. No one took it. But we did get a good deal non the less. Just talk to Diego, who will send you to Diego and the reservation will be under the name Diego. Totes legit.

*However, whales are much larger than they appear. In the future, spend the extra money to take a small glass bottom boat whale watching. While it may be terrifying and whale tales may make your boat rock. Do it. You won't regret it. We took a catamaran with open bar and brunch. It was lovely and we saw a lot of whales, but that up close and personal experience would probably rock my world.
*Beware of Seagulls. A recent study has been done showing that 3 out of 6 girls laying on a beach, will be shat upon. A drink has even been named in that honor. I believe it was called the "Seagull Poop" drink, or something of that nature.
*Traveling with a group of girls can be a good and bad thing. Our age ranged from 26-29, so all adults, but the front desk gave us the run around by putting us in the worse room (back of the property, ground floor, looked into a cement wall). Wouldn't honor the reservation room type we reserved. And questioned our age and if we were of legal drinking age. We were by far the calmest group. Those 40-50 year old ladies like to party!

* Once you've made friends with a local, ask them where they like to go for dinner. We kept getting coupons for free drinks at very American restaurants where the resort was getting a kick back. We asked our buddy Diego where he goes for good seafood and he recommended a small restaurant called Tres Islas. It was very good.

*If you are going to travel to another country, bring a pharmacist with you. I had some stomach issues and thanks to our on hand pharmacist, I got all the pills I needed to be able to enjoy my trip and only be out of commission for a day.
In conclusion, I'm freezing and I feel like my tan has already faded away. The girls and I decided that we are going to move to Cabo with all of our friends and start a woman's pirate ship. Less clothes, more booze. It's a solid business plan.
Cabo. I miss you.
