I still need a fun day in Cabo. I do not want to do Lovers Beach. I will go to the beach in Zihuatanejo. Help!

Parasail! It's awesome! Thenhit Cabo Wabo if you are a Van Halen or Sammy Hagar fan. ~Chris

If you can get off the ship early, take the tender to the main dock, and for about USD$3, you can get a water taxi from there over to Playa El Medano where there's banana boats, parasailing, seadoo rentals (USD$80/hr) etc.

You cannot swim at the beaches on the Pacific (eg at the Finisterra Hotel) due to the severe riptides. As a matter of fact they don't even allow you to walk in the surf due to the existing dangerous surf.

There are also other great beaches all the way up the Sea of Cortez side. It's a lot quicker doing the water taxi to Medano than walking around the marina to the beach (35 mins).
Have a great cruise and...

Ciao for now!!!
