The second day we spent in Cabo San Lucas was pretty good.  We spoke to Victor (the America who owns/runs the hostel) about where we could walk to some good beaches and he recommended a great little trip.  We walked through town toward the Pacific coast, through the lobby of some swanky hotel, and out on to the beach there.  Remember the part of Planet of the Apes where thereīs a shot of a beach with the head of the Statue of Liberty half buried in it?  Thatīs the beach we were at.  I tried to get the same shot as in the movie - minus lady libertyīs head of course...  From there you can hike through the rocks over to a hidden beach with huge rocks and cliffs on either side.  The beach itself was probably only 25 feet wide. Then you can hike over another bunch of rocks to where Divorce Beach and Loverīs Beach are.  Those are the touristy beaches that most people take water taxis out to, and you donīt really see any people coming over the rocks the way we did. Divorce beach was pretty good, although we didnīt swim there cause we heard that itīs somewhat dangerous.  Loverīs Beach was so lame - full of people and tons of boats bringing people in and out.  Iīm guessing itīs popular because you can swim there.  We spent some time on Divorce Beach and then climbed back over the rocks to the beaches in front of the hotels where we looked for sea glass for a little while.  

The next morning we walked to the bus stop to catch a bus to Todos Santos.  This was the most comfortable bus weīd ever been on.  The seats reclined way back and there were built in ottoman-like things for resting your legs, and they showed The Bourne Supremicy - Beckyīs in love with Matt Damon so she couldnīt have been happier.  I think the ride was around 3 hours, and it was only like $5.50 each.

In Todos Santos we got a hotel, dropped off our laundry for wash and fold, and then walked to the beach, which ended up taking 45 minutes down dirt roads and through some jungle/woods/brush.  The beach was nice, and there was barely anyone on it - more sea glass hunting...  

The next day in Todos Santos we just walked around a bit because we had booked a bus up to Pichilingue for that day in order to try to catch a ferry to Mazatlan.  Todos Santos is a cute little town, but we didnīt really end up doing a lot.  We left around 11:15 on a bus that was, once again, very nice.  So far this bussing it thing is going pretty well...
