We had all been to Cabo before but it has changed a bit since we were last here. The shops and restaurants are all new. Most built/rebuilt after one or more hurricanes. We decided to go check out the Giggling Marlin, almost an institution in Cabo. We had a drink but the food didn't appeal to everyone so we headed back to the marina area and found nice place to eat. There were big flatscreens everywhere and everyone in the place was glued to them watching Futbol (soccer).
