My trip to Cabo was absolutely incredible. It was exactly what I needed to start my year off. I’ve created a summary of my journey in Los Cabos in case any of you are ever interested in traveling there. Enjoy!
WHERE TO STAY
For this trip we decided to ditch the hotel scene and stay in a quaint little space I found on Airbnb. The name of the space is Casa Polaroid but you can access it through Airbnb right HERE. The space was CLEAN, close to everything, well decorated, and the host (Brenda) was so friendly and knowledgeable. If you’re ever in Los Cabos, stay here and tell her Vic sent you.
WHERE TO EAT
Of course street tacos are a MUST. They can be found almost anywhere and are relatively cheap (less than $2 per taco)
We stopped by La Casa Country. It’s in downtown Cabo near all the shopping and boat tours, so it’s prime location. The food was pretty good (although the street tacos are better). The best thing at La Casa Country is the guacamole— it’s made fresh in front of you, and tastes like a small slice of heaven.
For dinner we had Koi Sushi, because what would a trip to Mexico be without sushi, right? It was amazing. We almost ordered one of everything. The great part about having sushi in Cabo is that it was the perfect fusion between Asian and Mexican cuisine. The rolls were packed with unique flavors and pairings. This is defiantly a must try.
Baja Brewing Company was another favorite. Tucked away in San Jose Del Cabo, this little bar offers both Mexican and American fare. The pizza was my favorite.
Last but DEFINITELY not least get a churro from Las Guacamayas. There is no photographic evidence of our churros because they were gone within seconds.
WHAT TO DO
I am not a party girl at all, so if you’re looking for the Cabo turn up, you’ve come to the wrong blog. I’m all about exploring and experiencing life and culture— here is how I did that in Cabo.
Go shopping in Downtown Cabo San Lucas. Yes, EVERYONE is trying to sell you something, and eventually the shops and their inventories get redundant. But, this is a great place to get souvenirs and you can even find some cute pieces for your wardrobe. BARGAIN. People are willing and ready to negotiate with you.
Get the dead skin eaten off your feet. This was…..an experience. It felt weird, kind of creeped me out, but it was worth the $15. (This place is near all the boats in Downtown Cabo).
The best $15 I spent on the trip, and arguably in my life, was on a boat tour. The boat took us around to the arch, seal beach, and dropped us off for an hour on Lover’s Beach. These pictures don’t do that boat ride any justice— it was magical.
Take a drive to San Jose Del Cabo. It’s about 30 minutes from Cabo San Lucas, and well worth the drive. It’s a quiet and quaint little town. No one is heckling you every other second, the streets are clean, the food is great, and the atmosphere looks and feels like a Pinterest dream.
Los Cabos was the perfect little getaway, I pray you travel there and I pray you enjoy your stay as much as I did.
