Vacationing in Cabo San Lucas is the perfect, luxurious getaway. Nestled between the ocean and mountains, there are beautiful views all-around. We went with another couple from college and let’s just say, this trip did not disappoint.
We visited Cabo in early December. This seemed to be the perfect time as temperatures ranged between 75-85° F with the sun shining every day. Whale watching season is also during early December through April, so we were fortunate enough to watch whales breach during our days in Mexico.
Listed below are seven must-dos when vacationing in Cabo San Lucas.
We did the all-inclusive package at our resort, so we mainly ate at their restaurants. However, with our all-inclusive deal, we were also able to eat at restaurants located at the sister resorts – Pueblo Bonito Rosé and Pueblo Bonito Los Cabos. I highly, highly recommend stopping at Cilantro’s Restaurant for dinner. We reserved a table for 5 pm both nights we ate there; this was perfect timing as we were able to choose what table we sat at, while also enjoying the spectacular views before, during, and after the sun went down.
Outpost located in downtown Cabo serves harvested vegetables, herbs, and sprouts that are grown on their rooftop garden.
Flora Farms is a beautiful 25-acre organic farm, located about 35-minutes from downtown Cabo.
Acre is about a five minute drive from Flora Farms. The aesthetics of this restaurant are insane. 😍
Cabo Wabo Cantina is one place that was recommended by many due to the live music entertainment and delicious mexican cuisine.
If you aren’t planning to stay at Las Ventanas Al Paraiso, I highly recommend visiting for a beautiful dinner with stunning views.
We ate a variety of food including guacamole, ceviche, tuna tartar, sushi, steak, crab cakes, togarashi squid, shrimp, octopus, fish and picana tacos, smoked salmon, and on and on. The food was delicious! We also drank enough pina coladas, miami vices, mojitos, and margaritas to last a few months. 😅
We stayed at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach which was about a 45-minute drive from the airport. The resort is located on the western side of the tip of Baja, illustrating spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean. Unfortunately, no swimming in the ocean is allowed due to strong currents along the coastline. However, there are six pools and a variety of restaurants to enjoy – there truly is a pool and restaurant for everyone!
Nobu Hotel is a 30-minute drive from downtown but has a beautiful, serene elegance to it.
The Cape is a 20-minute drive from downtown and overlooks the Sea of Cortez with the famous arches in the background.
Las Ventanas Al Paraiso is an absolutely stunning resort with beautiful dining options!
