The ultimate destination on our grand Mexican road trip was of course, the very end of the Baja Penninsula, Cabo San Lucas! Famous as a raucous spring break destination, Cabo brings to mind images of unruly American teenagers pouring tequila down each others throats on the beach. Not exactly our scene. However, we had to see it.
Thanks to Living Social we scored a great deal on a really nice suite in a beachfront hotel outside of town, Marbella Suites en La Playa. It was the nicest place we’ve ever paid for and being there for four nights made the trip really feel like a honeymoon! Normally we’re very “get up and go” travelers, but after all the stress and activity of wedding planning, we found ourselves craving a typical, relaxed vacation for the first time ever. So, relax we did! Our stay involved a lot of pool time, reading, watching movies, and hanging out with another couple we befriended. It was exactly what we needed!
We did get out for some surfing a couple times (waves too big for us!), explored downtown Cabo (it really is the Las Vegas of Mexico), and found the best taco shop in the history of the world! Asi y Asado had the greatest selection of taco bases (vegetarian, every kind of fish, beef, chicken, etc.) and the biggest toppings bar we’d ever seen! We’d each order two tacos and then pile them high with condiments, still unable to try everything! SO GOOD.
Stunning beaches, an abundance of activities, and outrageous parties make Cabo a great destination if you want it all. I don’t think we need to go back anytime soon, but we definitely had a blast!
