Our very first Mexican letterbox (planted in 2008) was Loveboat Letterboxing Bug, the second box from our LOVEBOAT LETTERBOXING CRUISE III series.


645. La Flor del Cabo A short stroll along a small beach toward a famous little rocky arch in Mexico

N.B. As most letterboxers probably know by now, after planting well over 500 regular boxes, we got tired of leaving plastic containers out in the environment, so for the past few years we sometimes just leave in our wake now small rocks with stamps glued underneath that we call "travelin' lights".

To find this little flower "travelin' light", head south from downtown and the main tender dock of Cabo San Lucas past the Naval Terminal. We had hoped to climb Mt. Solmar and plant this flower atop with a view of Lovers Beach/ Divorce Beach and the rocks marking the tip of Baja California below, but Enrique's gate was locked that day, so we simply followed the fence line to the southern end of Playa Enpacaderos, where the rocks begin and the fence goes up the mountain. From the lowest "No Pase" sign (red letters on white background) with a large multi-cactus behind the fence, scramble up maybe a dozen paces to a 10' tall straight single cactus in front of a rock face. There behind the cactus and in front of the rock face, under a 3" triangular rock rests a small gray and white stone with tiny garnets in it that harbors a little flower on its back side. Please replace as found.


646. La Rana del Puerto A short stroll from Puerto Vallarta's seaside walk to the statue of a famous film director

N.B. As most letterboxers probably know by now, after planting well over 500 regular boxes, we got tired of leaving plastic containers out in the environment, so for the past few years we sometimes just leave in our wake now small rocks with stamps glued underneath that we call "travelin' lights".

To find where this little frog "travelin' light" has landed, hop on over to Oscar's along Puerto Vallarta's many-scuptured Malecon, just south of where the river spills out into the ocean on Isla del Rio Cuale. Head east to around the midpoint of the small island to find the statue of John Huston, who directed "Night of the Iguana" nearby. Sit facing him on the left side of the cement planter, and wait for a quiet moment to lift the 4" rectangular rock in the front left corner to hopefully unearth a slightly buried small dark roundish stone with a frog on its back. Sorry we didn't have an iguana, but please discreetly replace the frog as found to try to keep him safe.


647. El Faro del Cerro A walk up the hill to what we were told is the highest active lighthouse in the world!

Oops! We were having such a good time walking up the hill to this lighthouse, reading the Spanish sayings and watching for feral cats, that we completely forgot to leave this "travelin' lighthouse" behind in Mazatlan, but drop us a line if you want a clue to its new mystery destination…
