Well, today marks the day! It has been over six years since I've had the opportunity to embrace the culture, scenery and daily siestas that we San Franciscans simply don't get to indulge in. Today I will be flying to Southern California to set sail and cruise down to the stunning towns and warm waters of Mexico. Stopping at Cabo San Lucas, Mazatlan and Puerto Vallarta, I am thrilled to capture the beauty of the sparkling waters, relax in the golden sand and eat authentic meals daily. I'm crossing my fingers 1 week is long enough!
These photographs were taken by me with film during August of 2008 in Cabo San Lucas. I couldn't help but share these photographs, I love the dreamy scenery and turquoise ocean (yes, these are without filters, I don't think Instagram was around back then, was it?) On our first day, We will be adventuring to Los Arcos surrounding the romantic Lover's Beach in Cabo San Lucas. Here we will float in the ocean, sun bathe under the famous Golden Arch and head back into the town via glass bottom boat for a beach side dinner.
The next day we will explore the historic town and culture of Mazatlan. I think soaking up the sun while watching the famous cliff divers here will be a great way to spend the day (plus a little shopping, of course!) You can bet a lot of ocean swimming. photographing and smiles will be happening here. I've never been to this Mexican city, so it should be an exciting time to do some exploring!
Our next adventure will land us in picturesque Puerto Vallarta where we will be taking a private boat to the the #4 most private island in the world, Los Caletas. Here, we will snorkel, kayak, stand up paddle board, dine on fresh Mexican food while being surrounded by colorful parrots and maybe even some monkeys all before a nice siesta in the hammocks that are set up along the water of the island.
We happen to be gone during Thanksgiving, so we may be eating a non-tradition dinner consisting of fish tacos and a corona (I don't mind!) I hope you all have an amazing Thanksgiving with friends and family and take time to enjoy the holiday. Travel along with me on my Mexico adventure by following Sunshine Daydream on Instagram and Twitter.
