Forget the dolphin swim. Come to Cancun Mexico and swim with the largest creatures in the world the Whale Shark Adventure. This is the largest migration of whale sharks and happens between May 15th and the end of September. Whale Sharks can reach lengths of 40 feet and have enormous scoop like mouths that allow them to fill up on plankton and tiny plant life.

When you book the Whae Shark Adventure you will travel in small groups and you are accompanied by a bilingual marine biologist that will swim with you along side these docile beasts. After you swim with the whale shark you will stop and snorkel at the barrier reef.

The prices start at $185 per person and this should be booked in advance to ensure availability. Come experience one of Mother Nature’s most impressive creatures !

This resort offers 3 lavish pools, 4 restaurants, and 6 acres of golden brown sand beach.

Whether you’re an adventure seeker or a beach bum like me, a trip to Cabo San Lucas can be just what the doctor ordered. The canopy tour is a must for the adventurist in your group. You’ll fly from mountain to mountain as you catch a glimpse of the Pacific Ocean on your way, and you can’t pass up the deep sea fishing in a place considered the fishing capital of the world! If you can plan your trip December through March, a whale watching excursion is a must, with whales so brave you get up close and personal!

World-class golf courses designed by the legends of the game, will keep your husbands busy as the girls treat themselves to a relaxing massage. No visit to Cabo is complete without a glass bottom boat ride, a relaxing way to view the underwater marine life, the sea lion colony, pelican rocks and the arch at “Land’s End” but my personal favorite was the sunset catamaran cruise. Pacific sunsets in reds,oranges, pinks and purples like I had never seen before, was the perfect way to welcome the night.

With so many luxury resorts, its easy to lay back with a cold drink and soak up the sun, but when the sun goes down it’s time to head to down town Cabo San Lucas. Grab a bite to eat, dance until dawn and partake in Cabo’s amazing nightlife. The lobster bisque at Lorenzillo’s is to die for and a patio table is a fantastic way to watch the crowds below. And If you’re looking to dance, El Squid Row and Zoo bar are the perfect way to let loose. My trip to Cabo is still one of my fondest memories and I’ll be going back for sure!
