Hot Pink Travel
December was spent on a wellness cruise with UnCruise Adventures in the Sea of Cortez. To get there, we left Sacramento on Saturday and it was an easy flight to Cabo and then a bus for a few hours to La Paz where we met the boat. The staff greeted us with cocktails and appetizers and we slowly settled in.
Things to note:
• Everything is included: Cocktails, excursions, 30-minute massage, dinner. And it's all amazing.
• No keys. We did't lock our stateroom the entire time, even when we were in it! It was a bit of a shock at first, but it's nice to be that trusting and really there wasn't anything to worry about.
• Free 30-minute massage for everyone! And it was awesome.
Sailing with 85 people is a dream. On and off the boat is easy and efficient. The ship can get close to shore and go places other boats cannot. Plus, we’re basically the only ship on the entire Sea of Cortez. It’s us and a few sailboats. It gives you what a vacation should be: time to unplug, connect and be present.
Sunday began with 6:45 am yoga, breakfast and then a chance to go do something amazing: snorkel with sea otters. Yes, actually get in the water and frolic with the playful pups. The Sea of Cortez is beautiful. The mountains were burnt orange and we saw blue and brown footed boobies, turkey vultures and gulls. UnCruise provides the wetsuits, fins and masks. You just show up and have fun.
Let's embrace new cultures, learn new things and see where we'd like to venture next.
