Hi Juliet, we almost *always* sail at the end of October down to mexico (I just don't care to be at home for Halloween, and Andy's babysitters love to do up the house.

We have only encountered rain one time, and that was when it was very humid in PV, and it happened about 3 p.m.

From what I've heard, the closer you get to November, the better in terms of weather, storms, etc.

Expect about 88-90 in Puerto Vallarta with humidity, 85 in Mazatlan and high-70s in Cabo.

The rates are very good this time of the year -- that is one reason why we always go.

My only advice would be to book at the end of October, though, instead of earlier in the month.

Harry

Noticed you said to book later in the month of Oct. We are booked on the Sapphire Oct. 1st. Is it because it is hotter there that time of year? Any suggestions on sportfishing in Cabo? I was reading the boards last night and contacted Randi's for horseback riding in Mazatlan and she got back to me within 30 min. Thanks for any info.

Dalene, that's great news. Randi is a dear and a half.

On the sportfishing, there are kiosks that line the walkway after you get off at the pier that advertise 'em. It's pricey, if I recall, about $125.

Thanks Harry for the reply. It's been so long since I visited this site I forgot that I actually had a log in. Would love to splurge for DH and boys to go fishing. Have you ever been snorkling in Cabo? How does it compare to snorkling in St. Thomas?

By everything I've read here, the snorkeling isn't on par with that in the Caribbean. However, it is popular in Cabo ... I see a lot near Lovers Beach and someone mentioned some other area.

I bet you could do a search here for Cabo+snorkeling and get more answers from the past.

Does it rain a lot in the afternoon? We are sailing 10/1/05 and I'm getting worried we made the wrong choice of sailing dates.

Thanks!

We got the rain one time in October (late October). It started about 3 p.m. and was a big drops. Didn't spoil the day at all, because by that time, we were pretty much getting ready to head back, because we left port about 6, if I recall.

Thanks for starting this chain of discussion. I am booked on the Oct31 Mercury cruise so it sounds like it should be a good choice of timing. First cruise so getting a little anxious
