Celebrating our anniversary in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Every May, Reverend Dugan and I celebrate our anniversary by traveling somewhere. We tend to go to Cabo San Lucas quite often. This year I especially wanted to return to see how the Baja is recovering from Hurricane Odile from Fall 2014. So, we packed up and stayed at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach for a week. Even though we were supposed to be laying low, relaxing, and generally doing nothing, I scheduled one day for site inspections (surprise honey!)
Many resorts are re-opened, with extensive remodels, but some are still closed due to the damage of the hurricane. Many businesses in downtown Cabo are still closed and remodeling.
Cabo San Lucas is unlike the Cancun/Riviera Maya side of Mexico. There is a big emphasis on the quality of food. The all-inclusive in Cabo is different from Cancun in terms of inclusions. The water is rougher in many areas, which makes it good for surfing. There are a few beaches in Cabo that are swimmable. The landscape is arid and dry. This is the desert! It rains very few days a year in Cabo, which lends itself as a perfect setting for destination weddings. Villas, fractional timeshares, and homes are prominent.
We enjoy that part of Mexico and the activities that can be done in Cabo or in other towns in the area. Every fall, Cabo hosts a deep-sea fishing tournament that draws people in from all over the world. There is an organic farmer’s market downtown. Cabo recently just had their first half-marathon race. On top of ziplining, bungee jumping, swimming with the whale sharks, whale watching, and camel riding, Cabo San Lucas has several locally owned restaurants and nightclubs that start hoppin’ every night, especially on the weekends.
We are never disappointed when we leave and can’t wait to return. Contact us to start planning your next experience in Cabo and enjoy a few pictures below!
