Yesterday it was Andres; today it’s Blanca.
The second Tropical Storm of the 2015 Pacific Hurricane Season was officially given its name early this morning. It’s currently located to the southwest of Acapulco and is moving very slowly in a northerly direction – so slowly, however, that it is highly unlikely to affect those of us onboard Carnival Cruise Line’s Carnival Miracle, which dropped anchor off a sun-drenched Cabo San Lucas, Mexico shortly before 11:00 a.m. local time.
Located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas – or Cabo for short – is actually part of a larger geographical area that is known as Los Cabos and – somewhat confusingly – also includes the nearby town of San Jose del Cabo. If you were to fly into Cabo San Lucas for a vacation, you’re actually flying into San Jose del Cabo – but your airport departure board will likely show “Los Cabos” as the departure destination. Try keeping all of that straight after a few bottles of Pacifico!
