So every year at this time my husband and I jet off to some beautiful beach destination, and this year we’ve again chosen INCREDIBLE Los Cabos Mexico, located at the tip of Mexico’s Baja California Sur. We have had a busy start to the year, and it’s only going to get busier, so we need this vacation
The well-known Mexican escape has it all: new hotels, an exciting locavore food scene, and plenty of adventures on the water..
Located at the tip of Mexico’s Baja California Sur, Los Cabos has long been a popular beach getaway, with most visitors flocking to either Cabo San Lucas, the southernmost destination known for its high-energy party vibe and beautiful beaches, or the more laid-back San José del Cabo, whose charming historic center is about 30 minutes north. But thanks to a spate of new high-end hotels, many located along the coastal corridor that runs between the two popular cities, and a crop of elegant farm-to-table restaurants, Los Cabos is shrugging off its spring-break image and becoming a MUST DO destination.
STAY – Numerous new luxury resorts and hotels give you plenty of options for your Cabo getaway. While there, I’ll be visiting several of these new resorts that have now opened, since my last trip there 2 yrs ago. Watch our Facebook Page for new pictures and videos, and check out our photo albums with pictures of our last trip.
EAT – Throughout Los Cabos, the food scene is also having a moment, one that celebrates local ingredients above all else. We ate our way through Cabo on our last visit, eating amazing seafood at Office at the Beach, where you are literally eating on the beach under a big tent watching all the activity on the water in the Marina district. We celebrated our anniversary at Sunset Mona Lisa for cliff side dining while watching an amazing sunset. And of course, no visit to Cabo is complete without sipping margaritas at Cabo Wabo.
And, we are such huge foodies, that no trip anywhere in the world is complete unless we visit a local grocery store. Cabo has the MEGA which is an amazing place for foodies. Visit there on Saturday mornings and someone will be making fresh tortillas that are still warm in the package. And their mole bar….. oh…. don’t get me started…. a half dozen or more varieties to choose form. And did I mention the bakery???? To die for. Okay, I need to stop…. I’m drooling already.
DO – As tempted as you may be to just linger by the pool or on the beach, there are plenty of ways to get out on the water, and some of the most iconic activities are available in and around Cabo San Lucas. From December to April, you can witness humpback and gray whales during their annual migration; and these boats bring visitors closer than your average boat. We normally can see the whales in the distance from our balcony; however, on this trip, we’re going to get up close and personal with them. Watch for Facebook live posts and videos from that adventure. Other adventures such as snorkeling, world champion fishing, parasailing, food & wine tours, cooking classes, art experiences, camel rides (YES… camel rides), The choices are endless in this diverse destination.
No matter what you are into, there is something for everybody in Cabo.
This year, Cabo won several awards at the annual Travvy Awards, which is the Oscars of the travel industry. Winners are chosen based on a rigorous judging process that ensures the best and brightest in the travel industry are acknowledged for their achievements.
We are happy to announce that Los Cabos has been recognized with 5 awards due to the state-of-the-art infrastructure, world- class accommodations, top-tier architecture and lavish culinary scene.
