Departing San Jose del Cabo

18 March 2014
CRAP, here in San Jose Del Cabo still. Headed off this morning to the Port Captain to clear out of Mexico. Our second attempt as yesterday was a holiday. After a 15 min wait we discovered we had to go to Cabo San Lucas Immigration for paperwork first. This was a 100 USD cab ride there and back and an hour and half in the office. We got back to the Port captains office some 3 1/2 hours after the first visit. after only a 5 min wait we were presented with a Bill of 260 peso. No problem, just had to get back in the cab who we had waiting and go to the Bank to pay it, another 15mins. Back to the Port Captains office and within about 2mins he pointed out that our paperwork from immigration was incorrect. Not mind you anything that we had filled out but the printed Section. They had photocopied an old sheet, the date was actually 2012. CRAP another 100 bucks back to immigration, CRAP CRAP, they are now closed for the day, 1pm being their closing time, 1.45 being our arrival time back. Maybe third time lucky.
Now sitting in a bar, 3rd time lucky, first 2 were closed today. Enjoying a very cold beer or 3 with great company, just not exactly what was planned for the day. Oh well there is always Tomorrow to get cleared and make a break for it. Our captain was calling for razor blades after the bank, that's a whole other story. Now after a beer he is a little more mellow. CHEERS.
