... never knew it was played for more than solving ties.
Still a bit more alcohol to consume so we learn Kings, a favorite of Janene’s from her college days. We learned who can rhyme and who can’t. Who knows elements and who doesn’t. What a fun last night.
Tiger, Janene and Tassia will be leaving us tomorrow morning it has been fabulous and we agreed to do family adventures every four years.
Cabo San Lucas. Home of high pressure sales, persistent vendors, and sales people who would sell their mothers. Also, home of 'Luxury Avenue', a mall of only high end stores. But it is hot, and our last stop in mexico so we were happy just to be here. This is a tender port, so it's always an adventure getting ashore, but this time it was easy and we were on the dock in no time. We wandered the ...
I'm going to try to end each blog with two things. The high/low of the week (or however much time each blog covers!) and what I learned.

Do I need to write much more?? The two couples that were with us were madder than we were. The lady next to me starting saying stuff out loud about it all.
When we finally got off that boat it was nearly four o’clock. Our day in Cabo San Lucas, our hopes of going to Medano Beach, etc… all went up in smoke… literally. I would never, ever recommend this parasailing group under any circumstances, obviously. ...
... next phase, where i had a few days of time to my self in the fancy hotel, while christina was active in her course work.. I spent my time creating music, in preparation for a new 4 Track EP that i will release in mid May ( You can take a listen to 2 new tracks from this time - http://soundcloud.com/muskoaka )
I would take day trips around the area, seeking fine coffee and trying to find laundry facilities among other things.

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Cabo San Lucas Resort
Hard beds, noisy all nite, but is very close to the action!
The Plaza Las Glorias is a nice hotel at first. The beds are hard, very hard. I stayed at a hotel across street also for only $40 per nite and the beds were heaven. But Plaza has an OK pool. Watch out when talking to front desk, they get mean and sarcastic after you stayed there and are leaving. I guess they don't need your money anymore. Silly, silly people! Plaza is a very short walk ( 1-3 blks) to Sammys place, giggling Marlin, and all the action down town. Watch out for wait staff thrusting jello shots at you that you think is free then they charge your party OH, $45 or $5 bucks per. ouch. We said NO and gave them a tip.
I own a time share at the Plaza and have stayed there since 1992. I have had large luxurious rooms and smaller rooms. But, the rooms have always been clean and the staff friendly. I enjoy staying here because it is in close proximity to everything. I prefer not to rent a car in Mexico because I don't want to have to deal with their crazy driving.
I am surprised to read so many negative reviews as I have stayed at this hotel twice (2003 and previously in 1997) and found it and the staff to be very nice and the vacation enjoyable.
Beds hard as a rock, ants on my toothbrush, people yelling all night long. If your in cabo to get drunk everyday, and pass out on the floor this is the place for you. If your an airline pilot looking for rest, or bringing your family to have fun, stay far away! Watch out for extra LARGE charges after you leave that keep coming.
My family and I just came home after five days in Cabo, and we will NEVER stay at Plaza Las Glorias again. It was incredibly noisy every night until 4:00 or 5:00 a.m. (spring break punks), and the hotel management did absolutely nothing to quiet them down. Then, during the day, the worst of 70's rock&roll was blasted poolside. When we complained, the managment just shrugged their shoulders... If you like to drink all night long and scream until you are hoarse - this is the place for you and you'll have plenty of company! Also, bring plenty of money. You are charged for EVERYTHING in your room - coffee, water, maid service. Check your bill carefully! Skip the hotel restaurant, unless you have no taste buds and a big fat wallet. The only deal was the $1.00 tacos by the pool at lunch.One positive experience was dinner at Puerto Viejo, which is ironically on the same property but owned by someone else (Thank God). Very delicious and reasonable; we recommend it highly.We booked this vacation through SunTrips, and our flight was TEN HOURS LATE. Our compensation was $10.00 worth of breakfast and lunch food at the airport cafeteria. We will not be booking vacations through SunTrips as well. Although we liked Cabo, it was a relief to get back to REASONABLY priced Monterey.
Plaza Las Glorias is right on the marina in Los Cabos, Mx. Whale watching, dinner cruises and a wide variety of deep sea fishing boats, water taxis and other water craft were available all day within easy walking distances. No beach on site but the property offered a free shuttle to Medano Beach. The accomodations included a queen bed and mini kitchen with a microwave. Purified water is used throughout the property. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a dining area as well as space around the bed. The balcony offered a beautiful view of the luxury yachts at the marina.
Stayed at PLG first week of March 03, and found that overall it was disappointing -- it's generally run down and the rooms are about what you would expect in the states for $30 a night -- bare light bulbs, less than clean, slow/non-flowing drains, etc. Really in need of a face-lift and some cleaning. The location is close to town, which is great for going to clubs or to eat, but the trade-off is that you are in a marina and need to catch a shuttle to even see a beach. The hotel staff was generally pleasent, but be careful of anything that is in your room; bottles of water, coffe, etc -- they will surprise you with a charge for it when you checkout! Bottom line, if you are 18 and want to party every night and don't care where you sleep, probably ok if you can get it cheap, otherwise you will probably wished you had stayed elsewhere.
The Time of My life
Plaza Las Glorias was the site of the greatest collection of frat guys experiencing the pleasures of Spring Break. They allowed us to party till the brink of dawn with very well endowed local women. Plaza Las Glorias creeated a verry romantic backdrop for the many spring break experiences that me and my friends had. If you want to let lose, PLG is the place.
I was so looking forward to a quick escape. The Plaza "Not So" Glorious nearly ruined my vacation.
I recently stayed at the Plaza Las Glorias in Cabo San Lucas. The location is right on the marina and within walking distance to most of the major restaurants. My only complaint is that this place is vast, and if you get a room far (and I mean far) from the hotel entrance be prepared for a very extensive walk everytime you leave your room. The emergency stairways were useless because the gates were locked at the exits and after several complaints to the front desk we were told they could do nothing and suggested we "write the management" regarding the problem.
