Luckily, we get to take vacations with each other a couple of times a year. This year, Cabo Mexico was our summer destination. Neither couple has been to Cabo, so this was the first experience for us all. Jess and I are so blessed that our husbands get along so well. They actually look forward to seeing each other and have a relationship on their own. It’s perfect because we want to spend as much time as possible with each other, even if that means leaving them behind. Even though we’ve been to Mexico together on a cruise, meeting in Cabo was something special because we all got a new stamp on our passport! It’s the little things that make us happy and glad we make these memories together.
Stay & Play in Cabo!
Getting an AirBnB was a no-brainer for this trip. We wanted our own rooms, bathrooms, and a place to cook, while also being walking distance to the beach. That is exactly what we got and more! After booking the place, the owners of the rental were in contact with me and also put us in contact with the people that will actually be helping us throughout our stay. This was extremely helpful! We were able to set up personal transportation with drivers that waited with IPads with our names on it and vans filled with refreshing water and crisp Mexican beers. The concierge that was apart of the rental was with us the moment we got off the plane to accompany all of our needs. His name was Mr. Corona (like, for reals!) and he was the most helpful by far. He accompanied us to our AirBnB and during the ride, he informed us of EVERYTHING we need to know about Mexico, the good and the bad, and what we can do to get the most out of our time. They even took us to Walmart to stock up our rental for the week! Buying our excursions through him was smart because we got them greatly discounted. We kept in contact with him through Whats App. We were even able to book a sunset cruise the day before we left at such reasonable prices through Mr. Corona.
The beach was literally walking distance from where we stayed and we took complete advantage of that. We quickly noticed that one part of the beach was way more packed than the others. During the weekend, locals were there with their families as well as tons of salesmen and women walking along the beach, haggling you to buy their merchandise. That got pretty annoying. We found an area with private reserved only seating and made that our destination every day during our beach time. Playing in the ocean brought out the inner kid in all of us. We built sand castles, swam out to the buoys, played on paddle boards and body-surfed. The four us trying to get our balance to all stand up on a paddle board at the time same time was free, fun and a memory none of will forget. Evan got stung by a jellyfish, George was scared that sharks were going to get him, Jess’s got sunburned everywhere and Ray scared Evan shitless with her Jetski driving. Beach time was a success!
Food in Cabo
The food in Cabo was just okay. We all love Mexican food and were looking forward to having super authentic food here. This trip was the marking of the end of our 30-day detox and we were all ready to splurge. Ray and Jess definitely ate their weight in chips, salsa, and guac, followed by wonderful Mexican beers. That was literally our go-to. Evan and Ray were looking forward to eating the real authentic tacos with meats such as buche, tripas, Cabeza, and more, all made with homemade tortillas. That was not the case here. These meats were super hard to find and when they did find tripas, they looked old and dry. They are happy believers in that Fresno has way better tacos then Cabo. Jess is vegan and it seemed like they didn’t know exactly what that meant. Every time we put in an order, we would explain to them no animal products at all, please. After a few days of struggling to find appealing options, we found a vegan restaurant on Yelp that was within walking distance from the beach. It was so refreshing to walk into this little vegan gem and know that everything on the menu was so safe to eat. We shared a bomb ass plate of nachos and each got a dish as well. Everything was tasty and left Jess with a smile on her face. We all enjoyed this vegan spot very much!
We all enjoyed Mexico but really what we enjoyed most is spending quality time together. Being at the condo, eating guac and chips, having fun in the ocean, cooking breakfast together, and just being us. We talked, laughed and made amazing memories together. Us four can have a great time together pretty much anywhere. However, it was special being in another country together. We can’t wait for our next adventure together!
