Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo

Arrived in Cabo around 7am. As you can see from the picture below, from the ship it looks like Cabo is much more modern, though also a much more touristy town.

For this stop we didn't have a pre planned excursion, so here again we found a local guide to take us around the local sights. Our first stop was at a very popular spot, the glass factory. The picture below is best viewed from the photo album. It's a Google Photo Sphere picture, a 360 degree picture of the main lobby of the glass factory. Even viewed in the photo album it is a bit glitchy, with partial images of people. Still - it gives you the best display of the inside of the glass factory. The pictures do tend to be a bit time consuming though so I don't take too many of them.

You can read more about Google Photo Sphere here. Unfortunately it appears that this feature is being removed in the latest Pixel 8 cameras, possibly all cameras once they go to release 9.1. Sorry to hear that since, although it was a pain to use and somewhat glitchy, it produced some of the most memorable views of a scene.

Our next and final stop for the tour was at San Jose del Cabo. Although there is often quite a lot going on here, including art galleries exhibiting work by local artists, I guess we were there at the wrong time. It was a pretty quiet stop with most of the shops closed. The major point of interest was a small church, Mission San Jose del Cabo.

One of the "must see" sights of Cabo San Lucas is the rock arch on the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Although our tour didn't take us out there, since it requires a boat to get a good look at it, we did get a good view of it as our ship sailed out of the harbor.
