    Cabo is everything! We stayed at an all-inclusive resort called Villa del Palmar on our wedding anniversary. It was so perfect. The food is five star, the hotel was five star and Mexican people are amazing. We love the music and dancing. The beach was great but we also spent a lot of time by the pool. After a week at our resort, we booked an Airbnb in the city to explore locally for two nights. It was perfect, we will definitely be back and highly recommend it to others.

    I recently visited Los Cabos! And for those who do not know that consists of San Jose del Cabo (quieter town) and Cabo San Lucas (more vactive town). I stayed in San Jose because it was closer to the airport lol but I did some activities in San Lucas, which is a 30 min drive away.
    Things I did and would recommend in San Lucas:
    1. Catamaran – Snorkel Tour: I’m obsessed with catamaran/yacht tours and always book one when I travel (open bar is a must lol). In Cabos, the MUST SEE is the Arch in the ocean. If you book a catamaran tour after they leave the marina they stop at the Arch for photos ops! I wasn’t expecting this, I thought I would need to book another tour to see the Arch, so yay! After, we continued to sail..drinks were pouring, music playing, did the snorkel stop then back to the marina partying the whole way. I used Princesa Catamaran! Good vibes. They also have the sunset tour!
    2. Lovers Beach – The Arch: there’s a beach area near the Arch, but you can’t see it from the beach. The area itself has amazing rock formations for photos and of course the nice water!! To get here, you can hop on a water taxi at the marina. Quick tip: always negotiate whatever price they tell you! Lol
    3. ATVs and Horseback Riding: I did a combo tour with Rancho Carisuva! Look them up, it was a nice experience! It was my first time on a horse and it was super easy or maybe I just got a really nice horse :). ATVs are always a vibe, the terrain of the trail kept things interesting. We even rode up a hill to get an overlook of the Pacific Ocean; the riding downhill part was kinda nerve-racking but still pretty cool!
    4. A nice restaurant to eat at with not too much of an outrageous price range ($$) and a nice view for photos: SUR Beach House! Also they have the Sand Bar next door to continue the day, evening or night!

    Side note: Ubers are available, and that’s what I used to get around (super cheap). But they are “illegal” in the sense that they will get tickets from traffic authorities. But they seem to operate around that. Lol go figure!

    2019 I stayed at the RIU! Which was beautiful..food wasn’t the best. RiU was 5days/4nights for $680. There is plenty to do In Cabo..I think there best excursion to me has to be the sunset boat ride tour (open bar & actual food) & ATVs. It takes you out at sea as the sun sets while you have an open bar and some snorkeling!! I don’t have any links but the they have a excursion desk at the resort & that’s how I booked my activities

    This was my first time in Cabo so I ended up staying at Playa Grande in Los Cabos. We weren’t too sure how it would be here in terms of safety so we opted for all inclusive which is completely not necessary. Los Cabos is beautiful and very safe. Everyone is friendly and there is a lot to do. I recommend renting a car. It’s about an hours drive from the San Jose airport but there are plenty of places to rent a car from. Definitely look for an Airbnb, it’s a lot more affordable and you will be able to see more of the city. The food near the resort is all extremely Americanized and if you do opt in to staying at a hotel beware of the timeshare scams and memberships. We went to one presentation for all the the free activities but don’t let them pressure you into signing up for one.

    Traveled to Cabo San Lucas for the third time but this time during a pandemic. I was pleased with the measures that were taken by the resort Solaz for safety of its guest! All very welcoming all very accommodating. Resorts are only allowed to book hotels at a 30 percent capacity so not crowded at all! Cost per night was 285 not including taxes and fees. There wasn’t much nightlife during this time as everything closed by 11pm. But activities were still available.

    Cabo was absolutely amazing. A group of 14 of us went for a birthday trip and had a blast. The views on the ocean tours are amazing and the nightlife is a blast. The clubs played a variety of Black music. Upon arrival everything was very affordable. Great place to visit.

    I visited Cabo San Lucas for my birthday in December. Cabo is beautiful with a good mix of modern, history, food & adventure. While in Cabo I stayed at Marquis Los Cabos beautiful 4.5 Star all inclusive resort. Activities I enjoyed was whale watching, sunset cruise, ATV riding & Spa. I would definitely recommend this destination and will be back soon.

    First trip to Cabo, & I must say it was extremely great, I went with few other girls & we had a place. We spent 5 days there & each day we had an excursion/things to do. We did boat toars, ATV’s, snorkeling, parasailing, ect… omg we had the times of our lives there. We stayed at Playa Grande Resort, which was literally just across the street from the Marina/shopping plaza. Which is where we meet Miquel who setup our tour excursions. Each activity we did was GREAT. He was awesome, he took care of everything, we just showed up & had fun. I would recommend Cabo & Miquel to anyone.

    I went to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico during the non peak time in July. I had a fabulous time at my resort at RIU Palace Cabo Aan Lucas All Inclusive. I highly recommend a resort w/all inclusive. The only time I left my resort was to go to local store (Wal-Mart) which was walking distance. The resort had the whole week planned out from day parties to night parties. I went solo and met ppl that was cool and enjoying the culture. The waves are crazy so NO swimming and the horse back riding on the beach was really was my highlight. But definitely try to negotiate the price. Everyone is trying to sell you something of the same thing.

    I visited Cabo during Christmas and had a blast. My days typically started around 10 AM, where hiked from my AirbnB to downtown. Most days we spent time at the beach, shopping at the mall and at the local square and we also enjoyed some of the best happy hour margaritas known to mankind.

    One of my favorite places to eat in the downtown area was Gus’ Tacos. I loved this place so much that I ate here everyday and never got tired of the place. Everything and I do mean everything tasted delicious, from their tacos, to their burritos. If you find yourself in Cabo, please make sure to visit this place. You won’t be disappointed.

    If you’re looking for a destination to party, this is it. Cabo was one of the most turn up places I’ve been to. I stayed at breathless resort which was considered a party resort. Their pool parties were the only thing that was good. The hotel was located 5 minutes walking distance fro. The strip, so it was easy for us to get there. The strip has so many bars/lounges/clubs. And the best part about it is that it’s all free to get it. Drinks were very cheap but watered down. We met a couple of black couples that we befriended. Even saw a couple of basketball players just partying like regular folks. Would def. Recommend. Also the excursions that we did were very cheap half the price that was on the internet. There were a lot of timeshare folks that had u sign up for a seminar in order for u to get the excursion at that price. Seminar was about an hr. But boy do they harass u to sign up for their timeshare after lol just say no and keep it moving

    I recommend staying at a resort! Also, the scenery is beautiful imagine mountains and water . Do not get money from the airport because the translation back to is your local dollar is worth less, instead get money in town or at the bank and they also take credit cards. The views are beautiful and it is definitely worth visiting!

We also did ATVs which was fun too through the desert and beach .

    My trip to Cabo was for a wedding. We stayed in a 4 bedroom villa that slept 11 members of my family comfortably. Very spacious Airbnb in the city of Cabo. We stayed at Casa Finisterra in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

    While there we had the opportunity to swim with the dolphins at a facility which was 5 minutes walking distance from where we stayed which was amazing to be face to face in the water with one of the smartest animals in the world. I also enjoyed a booze cruise that played different Spanish music on all 3 floors of the yacht, they had different contests to keep the patrons entertained and endless drinks. Cabo was very inexpensive and the US currency went a long way

    Cabo has much American influence that they take the US dollar with no problem. Such a beautiful place and the perfect spot for couples retreat or even a group trip with your friends. The cost is fairly reasonable but you have to look for deals. Everyone is a hustler around the city so make sure to keep your bargaining skills are sharp. The best thing to do is get to the water. So many activities from being taken out by boat to see the many stoned mountains on the water. Even have a chance to climb some and jump off them. Even snorkel with the fishes while out there. Definitely a place to go spend a nice weekend at.

    I’ve fell in love with Cabo. In the past I’ve always overlooked Mexico as a travel destination, but with 3 trips in 3 years all of that has changed. Cabo attracted me due to the mix of activities, but the reset that it gave me in December prompted me to book a last minute trip again in May. I stayed at Cabo Azul in December. This resort is drop dead gorgeous and very clean. It leaves a big impression upon entry. I booked the junior suite and it gave me access to two balconies, one was equipped with loungers to sunbathe and an eating area. The bed was very plush and comfortable as was the sofa. What I loved about this resort was the freshness of the drinks, the beds located in the pool and ample amount of loungers. Cabanas near the beach allow you to listen to the waves crashing. The ones in the pool gave me a chance to relax, read and enjoy drinks while stretching out. The bartenders were very attentive. This location isn’t adult only, but there was an adult only pool, with a large spa attached. Majority of ya time this pool was empty so it was like having your own private pool. The sunrises on the beach are beautiful if you’re up early enough to catch them.

    Giving you some more specifics on cost:
    Mexico, Cabo Azul I booked a package with flight that came up to $975 for the package (4 days/3 nights).It’s much cheaper to hire transport from the airport prior to arrival. Both times in Cabo I used gray lines and it ran $22-25 round trip for an air conditioned ride in the van to San Jose Del Cabo. This is the quiet part of Cabo. It’s filled with a more relaxed crowd, where as San Lucas has the young, rowdy,hotel zone and touristy side. The hotel also has a 2 for 1 happy hour that happens at the pool bar daily. That alone kept my food and drink tab to $100 or less my entire stay.

    We stayed at the Riu Santa Fe – the room was pretty basic. It seemed a little out dated but we didn’t spend much time there.

    The “party pool” was great! It’s an infinity pool with a swim up bar. We spent most of our time there – it has a great vibe and the resort hosted some games in the afternoon.

    The food at the resort leaves much to be desired. It’s very basic and bland. It’s unfortunate because the hotel isn’t close to downtown so you’re basically stuck with it.

    Also, taxi rides downtown were about $25-30 USD each way so be weary of that. Apparently there’s a shuttle, but we didn’t want to take our chances with that so we just wen with the taxis.

    They have a whole downtown area with things to do even some American based venues such as Fat Tuesdays. The excusrisons do not hesitate to bargain with them because there a plenty of options to choose from such as a boat ride to see the beautiful Cabo Arch, another boat ride to mango beach, jet skis and a bunch of other water sports. They have plenty vendors you can talk them down in price if they see you will go else where, I do not remember the exact price we paid for our excursions but we were able to put together a package with the guy for about $30 cheaper than what he originally offered which may not sound like much but is a good deal on vacation.

    I went here on a girls trip and had an amazing time! What made the trip awesome was the scenery, you have desert mixed with ocean! One night we decided to eat at “Sunset Monalisa”. The food was great along with the service. We had drinks outside on the patio and was in awe of the sunset and went back inside for Pizza.. YES, PIZZA!! This restaurant is definitely a place I would return to.

    Cabo in the winter was so relaxing. The perfect way to escape the Midwest winters. We chose to stay at the Krystal Grand Los Cabos simply because we wanted to beach on the beach, relax and be catered to, so we chose an all-inclusive. The grounds were beautiful–flowers, ponds, games, and beach views.

    Not to mention the affordability of the resort. We got a great deal; a deal so great I even paid a little extra to have a swim-out room so we had our own pool at all times. However, the large pool was filled with daily fun activities such as water aerobics and pool volleyball. You have to go out early to reserve a seat though–like before 7am early! Especially for the good seats. There are food and bars in close proximity to the pool so it’s easy to stay there all day and get sun burned! Trust me, I know. The waiters come by to tend to your food and drink needs if you don’t want to get up. For dinner, reservations are recommended at the higher end restaurants.

    While the resort is beachfront, the beach was not swimmable at the time (February), but the mornings were beautiful and many people went out to watch the sun rise over the crashing waves. Needed my hoodie, but it was a gorgeous sight to see!

    I went to Cabo for a bachelorette trip in December and had a great time. We stayed at Breathless Cabo San Lucas, which is an adults only, all-inclusive resort, so it was perfect for us! Price: I’d definitely recommend booking with a travel agent because that’s what we did and our prices were about half the cost listed on the resorts website — either way, you’ll be spending over $200/night or more depending on your room selection. It’s not cheap but considering it was all inclusive, I’d say it was worth it. Hospitality: The resort really outdid themselves with making us feel welcomed from the moment we walked in. There were bachelorette signs on our doors and cake and champagne in our rooms, etc. Amenities: There were two infinity pools at the resort, one is a “quiet” pool and the other is in the Purple VIP lounge which has a DJ and bar, etc. Loved the vibe at the Purple Lounge pool – it was chill and fun. And the views!!! Amazing. The spa was nice, we got massages and relaxed on the terrace afterward. Nice view from the spa terrace and there’s also a nice hot tub which didn’t seem busy at all so we definitely took advantage of that one night. Food: The resort has a lot of dining options – over 10 different bars and restaurants to choose from. Some restaurants will serve certain meals tapas/small plates style – so be sure to check with the waiter before ordering, especially if you’re starving. But the food was good – mostly Americanized restaurants, though – so if you’re looking for authentic Mexican food you’d probably need to go off the resort. I’d also recommend going to a restaurant or bar instead of ordering room service – I didn’t like the food when I ordered in. Nightlife: We went off the resort to Squid Row one night and it wasn’t that great – but it was a Monday night so I’ll assume that was the problem. I’ve heard other groups say they had a lot of fun when they went out in Cabo so I guess it was just timing. Activities: Some of the girls in our group went off the resort to do excursions like ATV tours, but I was at the resort most of the time. We stayed for 3 days. There were a few things I wished I could have done if I was staying longer or was there on a personal vacation: see the famous Cabo Arch, go whale watching (it was apparently the season for it), go on a cruise, and go parasailing. I will have to go back again for sure!

    I stayed at Riu Santa Fe and it was nothing but pure amusement. The view was nothing short of amazing. They had multiple pools, some for partying and some for a more quiet environment. The drinks were great and food wasn’t too bad. The Italian restaurant they have their had the better quality food out of all of them. The themed pool parties and water park they had is what I enjoyed the most. I like a resort that has the option of having fun and relaxation so it was nice to have both of those options.

    In Cabo I stayed at Raintree Vacation Club. http://www.raintreevacationclub.com/vacation-resorts/mexico/los-cabos/club-regina-los-cabos/

    The resort is a little bit older, but very clean, the staff is superb and always happy to help with requests.
    We didn’t eat much at the resort, but the local restaurants in the area were very good! Best guacamole I’ve ever had, prices weren’t overly expensive either. There are a lot of excursions to participate in and if you negotiate well, you can a lot save money. Always bargain street food, shopping and even taxi rides. Also, instead of buying drinks at your resort, buy a bottle of liquor and keep it in your room…trust me, you’ll save some cash.

    Lastly, when you’re at the beaches in Cabo…DO NOT go too deep into the water! The waves are really strong, so get your feet wet and just enjoy the sun!

    If you looking for a good party destination, whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, bachelor/bachelorette party, or just a fun friends trip, Cabo is the place to be! Nightlife there was so fun. The highlight of my trip was the booze cruise. I can’t remember the name of the company we toured with but it was such a good time. The cruise started around sunset and lasted until maybe 10 or 11 pm. They make their own punch and also come around and give you shots. By the time you get off the boat you will be stumbling. They played good music and got everyone up and dancing. It’s different from a nightclub because you are partying on a boat which is an experience you must try.

    I loved it so much I wanted to live there lol. The party scene it’s better for me when it’s off peak. I have been there multiple times and the spring break crowd is too much.

    I’ve been to Cabo twice; once in 2015 and most recently in November of 2018. In 2015 I stayed further out at the pueblo bonito sunset beach. The venue was beautiful and located on the beach but you couldn’t swim on the beach because of the rocks there. Also it was a trek getting to all of the activities in town which was 20 to 25 minutes away and more expensive. The most recent time I stayed at villa del palmar and had an absolute blast. The resort was located bout 10 minutes from downtown near the marina , all of the clubs , bars the mall and shops. The resort was also on the beach where there was a swimmable area with jet skis , beach massages , horse back riding and a bunch of other activities. I used cactus tours and booked the events through the resort. For a total of $120 I was able to do atvs , horse back riding, snorkeling , a sunset cruise near the infamous arch over a span of 3 days. I left feeling like there was so much more left to do . Cabo is a beautiful place and I definitely will be back. The winter months are the peak times because the weather was perfect. In June it was blazing hot and I was not up to do all of the activities in the desert heat. In the winter months it was a high of 80s and low of 60s.

    Girls trip to Cabo! It was super hot but the views were beautiful! We had so much fun on our trip! We rode ATVs with a company called Fun Cabo for about $100 per person one of the days we were there and took a tour of the city. The nightlife is lit especially club Mandala!!! But you can literally bar/club hop because all the clubs are all in downtown Cabo on the same strip so we literally went to about 5 or 6 clubs in one night and there all within walking distance. I hear Cabo is one of the nicer cities in Mexico and I conquer! I would definitely go back! It’s also very affordable.

    The time share people may be a bit annoying however if you do the 60min tour you really do get some free excursions. I took the tour knowing I wasn’t gonna purchase because I already own one but in the end I came out with a free dolphin encounter excursion and free jet ski and parasailing excursions. Oh and they also feed you too depending on when you take the tour. Jus stand ur ground keep saying no if you dont want to buy and get your free excursions that good for a year.

    I just got back from Los Cabo in Mexico. I stayed at the Viceroy resort. This was the most beautiful I ever been. The view was amazing. Hotel staff was amazing. The food is very expensive I would tell anyone who stays there to eat outside of the resort. Other than that the place is amazing

    What Can I say but wow!!!!

    I recently came back from a birthday celebration in Cabo and I can say fun would be an understatement. We had the best time in Cabo! So much to see, so much culture. It was beautiful , the food was amazing and the country was absolutely beautiful.

    If you’re interested in the excursions, I believe the ATVs are a must. G-Force Adventures was a great company to use. We not only drove through the mountains, Juanito (our guide) stopped and let us take pictures along the way! Cabo really has some spectacular views.

    Second thing that is a must, is parasailing! You can see the Famous arches from hundreds of feet above. I’ve had the best time just feeling free in the air like that! The breeze isn’t bad considering how hot it can be in Mexico.

    You definitely make you own adventures in Cabo, just be sure to haggle your prices down if booking your excursions on the beach. You can really get some great deals there.

    Until Next Time,

    Jessica

    I stayed in Viceroy Los Cabo’s! Amazing hotel – ultra modern and beautiful design. Rooms, lobby, restaurant bar and pool are as beautiful as the pictures. Still under construction but there was very little noise and basically no inconvenience. It’s the soft opening so when it is officially open – it will be a top destination in Cabo.

    I’ve been to both Cancun and Cabo San Lucas and there is no comparison. We stayed in an airbnb in a newly developed condo right in the middle of the city. for a 4 day 5 night trip. The weather was breezy and the sun wasn’t too overbearing. It isn’t much to do in the city per say, so we chose to lay out on the beach at Playa del Medano and sip on mimosas and ride the jet skis. There is a lot of pan handling on the beach (even with the waiters) but that’s how they make their money so it was expected. We walked along the beach at sunset and the night time air along with the ocean was amazing! Cabo is a trip for the books!

    Cabo was a great time!! Definitely would come again!

    The must things to do= seeing the Marina, Lovers Arch , eating tacos at Tacos Guss, and Menado Beach.

    The tacos were so good and so authentic and affordable. If you are a foodie I recommend the beef tongue taco at Taco Guss . And the Menado Beach was so much fun. My and my fiancé went jet skiing on the beach. There is more water activities to choose from. There are great bars along the beach if you are looking for good and affordable food and drinks.

    We have done two excursions. The luxury sailing was beautiful and so relaxing. Seen tons of sea rays jumping in and out of the water. Water is super salty though. We also rode the ATV. The atv tour was amazing beware though HAVE YOUR CARD on you. You have to pay for entry as well as insurance. They don’t tell you upfront went you book.

    I have give nightlife at 1 because I get get a chance to explore.

    Having lived in Canada for the past few years we are always on the escape from rainy Vancouver to the southern part of North America. We took just a short 3 hour flight into Cabo San Lucas during Vancouver’s long Fall and was so excited for sun & fun!

    We spent 3 nights in an all inclusive resort located downtown Cabo. We wanted to be able to walk to the local bars, restaurants and to the Marina. We know that the beaches in the vicinity aren’t swimmable so we wanted to make sure we were near all the action in the city. We partied everynight! If we didn’t go into town, we would party at the resorts bar. We are dance fitness instructors, so we love to turn up! People would watch us dance and wanting to buy us drinks! It was wild!

    The hotel staff recommended a booze cruise and the boat was just a quick walk down to the Marina. The music definitely got us cutting it up on the dance floor and the food was on point! We pigged out at the taco buffet and made new friends with a bunch of flight attendants. We said we were going to have 2 drinks but everytime we came back to our table, the cups were refilled!! Children were allowed on the boat ride which was surprising, we probably would have opted for an adults only one but it was nice to see the families having fun and dancing together.

    We didn’t have much time in Cabo so right after the cruise, we took a quick nap and decided to check out downtown Cabo. We were going to walk but we ended up hitching a ride with one of the hotel staff members. He dropped us off to the infamous El Squid Roe. Its hard to explain what it is, you have to see experience it for yourself. Its a 4 story mega bar with roof top with themed bars inside this huge open air space! A few of our friends recommended it to us and we turnt up so hard! We ended up trying to go back the next night but there was a crazy long line to get in, so we ended up checking out another night club just next door. It wasn’t as fun but it was pretty cool to check out.

    We found 1 of 2 of Cabos’ swimmable beaches, Chileno Beach. It was a 20 minute ride from our hotel via taxi. The beach doesn’t have any services but there are people who will rent you chairs and umbrellas. We didn’t see any washrooms, but there were a few porta potties so make sure you come dressed to swim. We were the only touristas there at that time, the other tourists were leaving and surprisingly only 1 vendor asked if we wanted to rent any beach stuff and no one came by to offer anything else. The water was clear and the waves were great for jumping into. Some kids were snorkeling near the rocks of the beach, others were just sitting near the shore waiting for the waves to suck them into the ocean. It took us a few minutes to find a cab back. We used our broken Spanish to explain to some of the locals where we wanted to go. They were so helpful! Everybody was trying to help us get a cab back to town.

    We had a great time in Cabo and felt extremely safe during our trip. The next time we visit, we would like to stay at an Air Bnb or a smaller boutique hotel so we can enjoy more of the local restaurants and night life. There were so many things to do in the downtown area and the streets were live with people walking around day & night. if you want to relax, don’t go to Cabo, stay in San Jose del Cabo, which is a city closer to the airport and more quiet.

    If you’re looking for a high end accommodation and not worried about breaking the bank, I highly recommend staying at The One&Only Palmilla Resort. It exceeded all my expectations. I felt like a celebrity staying here. Your room includes a personal butler. The food is amazing! So are the views!

    ** I gave nightlife 1 star because I didn’t get a chance to experience** As for the food, I recommend visiting Tacos Guss and Taqueria El Paisa. Both are authentic, but El Paisa offers the best el pastor tacos, but the menu is limited to pork and beef. Tacos Guss offers more of a variety (chicken, el pastor, shrimp, pork and beef) all of which are amazinggggg. I also recommend stopping by a local tequila shop that is walking distance from Tacos Guss (I can’t remember the name). The owner was super friendly and offered us a variety of tequila tastings…that’s probably why we walked out after spending $150 on tequila (tipsyyy) lol.

    Cabo Night life was everything! I went Early Dec. and I was cold, I was kinda expecting it but it was a little colder than expected. I stayed at the the Hyatt Ziva resort. It was very nice but you couldn’t get in the water in that area, had dangerous marine life and the currents were Ferocious! Had to travel about 30mins to Mendoza Beach where I got Jet skii. The club scene is amazing. It’s like whole strip of nonstop lights and music, the only downer was the drug dealers.. they were EVERYWHERE. I plan to go back in the summer! Try a different resort.

    Cabo San Lucas is so much fun. There’s so much to do and see. We did the zip lines, snorkeling, whale watching, and got fish pedicures (highly recommended). There’s also tons of great nightlife in the city. I definitely recommend Squid nightclub. The party there is like no other.
    You have to check out Mi Casa restaurant for delicious authentic Mexican food and entertainment. And make sure you walk the marina around sunset for amazing views.

    Went here with a group of 6. We all had so much fun. Stayed one night in downtown at a hotel and then 4 nights at a resort a little further down. Took a taxi into the city everyday for nightlife. The strip with all the clubs and bar is amazing. Make sure you pregame and eat before then lol

    Cabo is great for all ages. I recommend taking a glass bottom boat to see the Arch. The boat ride to the arch is filled with tropical fish and sea lions everywhere. Hotels are very affordable but not close to any of the excursions. If you are comfortable driving in another country you can rent a car here for very cheap to drive downtown and do local shopping

    I went to Cabo in April of 2017 and have been dying to go back ever since! It’s the best of both worlds, desert and beach wrapped into one. There are many excursions to go on but the must see is the arch/land’s end, of course. My friends and I actually paid this shady guy $10 a piece for our own glass bottom boat ride, we saw the arch, were able to jump off of one of the rocks and he dropped us off at medano beach where we were able to hang out for the afternoon (he went back and picked us up a few hours later). Médano beach is one of my all time favorite beaches, it’s gorgeous, with calm waters and breathtaking views. There are bars and restaurants right on the sand where you can grab a drink and relax. I would definitely do it all over again.

    I’ve been here twice and looking forward to going back this spring. It’s a beautiful place if you love being surrounded by nature! I had an opportunity to do some snorkeling and jet skiing and took full advantage of it. The water was so clear it was like swimming in a fish bowl. Plenty of good food and people also. Don’t let the news fool you.

    I took an impromptu trip to Cabo last Easter. It was right in the middle of Spring break and it wasn’t extremely busy. I fell in love with Cabo from the food to the locals …. it was awesome . I stayed at the Cabo Inn which was very near the marina and right in the middle of everything.
    Where to stay: me and my boyfriend stayed at the Cabo Inn because of how charming the place looked. When we got there it was everything I wanted. Cabo Inn is the hidden gem in Cabo.It was one of the first brothels in Cabo years ago. It was affordable. One night stay could be anywhere from $30-$43 dollars per night and the beers are $1.00. It is not a resort type hotel so if that’s what you’re looking for do not stay there. We had running water, clean facilities, ac and peace and quiet even during spring break.
    Activities: there’s so much to do in Cabo we went horse back riding and rode atv’s in the desert. We would have done water sports but the water was too cold for swimming or fishing around that time. Other than that there are sooo many things to keep you occupied while on your stay.
    Food: the food is delicious and affordable there is this one restaurant, El Pollo de Oro whose food is so delicious and cheap . Bae and I would eat for $7.00 excluding drinks (which didn’t put a hole in our pockets)
    NIGHT LIFE: I don’t know for any other time but the night scene was so lit . Club cover charge wasn’t too bad, I can’t remember how much it was but we stayed for 5 days and we partied every night.
    Locals: everybody was welcoming and hospitable. The place is heavily patrolled by police so it is safe . We didn’t get harassed and were able to pay souvenirs and trinkets without be hassled .
    My overall experience was great and I would love to return as soon as I can .

    Cabo = a great time. One of my most memorable vacations.

    Not really a resort person but stayed at Riu Santa Fe which is probably why I had such a great time. Draws in cool people, and the staff is amazing. Definitely stay there if you’re a young adult and looking for a resort, as oppose to a renting a villa.

    Even though we were on a resort we left it everyday to go into town or do excursions, but there’s plenty to do if you decide to stay on resort. Local food was amazing – Omni Sports Bar on the beach and Cabo Cantina are the spots! Nightlife was UNREAL. It’s an absolute must that you hit up El Squid Roe in town, I promise it’s like nothing you’ve ever experiences.

    If you’re into fun go to Cabo.
