At the tip of Baha California, the pristine beaches of Cabo San Lucas are still a welcoming, safe place for American to indulge in a luxury sun and sand vacation. Separate and distant from the turmoils of Mexico, Cabo offers affordable pricing for west coast travelers with hotels ranging from basic to extreme luxury, plus plenty of adventure from snorkeling to zip lining. The resort location of Los Cabos, Mexico was voted as the #3 Best Destination in the Caribbean and Mexico for the TripAdvisor Traveler’s Choice Awards.
On our last trip to Cabo San Lucas, my husband, Gene and I just hung out at the harbor and cantina. We were in the mood to just relax and stroll. For those bursting with energy, stop into one of the tourist shops along the walk into town to arrange an ATV trek or check out www.bajaoutback.com . World class sport fishing awaits those with the lure of the sea. My Dad, years ago, had the fishing trip of his lifetime here when a great upwelling of fish occured just as he and Uncle Owen set their poles. Try www.picesssportfishing.com or www.pincantesportfishing.com to charter a boat.
Here kitty, kitty, give me a kiss. A highlight for Gene and I was having our pictures taken with these lion cubs. The local animal preserve uses this photo opportunity as a fund raiser. These cuties were about 2 months old and obviously very accustomed to being handled. The jaguar was not so friendly and gave Gene a nasty nip.
Love being seranaded by the Mariochis! Great fresh seafood for lunch!
Remember the Eagles’ song, “Hotel California”? Take a tour or rent a car for a 45 minute jaunt to the quaint town of Todos Santas. This is the location of the namesake of the song. Or better yet, rent a utility vehicle such as a Mitsubishi Outlander Sport for a back -country trip down the old road to La Paz. You may be greeted by burros, cows, pigs, Mexican hawks along the dirt roads. Stop in the tiny village of La Calenderia to visit the historic church and pause under the plumeria trees.
Into the party scene, Cabo is ready for you. Clubs to visit starting about 11:00 pm include Cabo Wabo and Mandala. For daytime party fun, try the Passion Club at the ME Cabo hotel on Medano Beach.
Don’t forget to take a water taxi to get a close up view of the famous rock formations of Cabo.
