Cabo San Lucas

We’ve been home from Cabo San Lucas for a little over a week now and we’re already going through withdrawal.  We’ve had one blizzard since getting home and are expecting snow on Thanksgiving, so the sun and beach seem like a distant memory at this point.  We truly had a wonderful time visiting Cabo and walking around town and through the marina.

As you walk through the marina, you’ll continuously be approached by sales people trying to get you to take a glass bottom boat, take you deep-sea fishing, go on a time share tour, or play golf at one of the many courses around the area.  It is definitely worthwhile taking a glass bottom boat out to the arch and to go to lover’s beach.  The marina is also where you board the different dinner cruises, party boats, and fishing boats.  We’ve done many of the different dinner and sunset cruises, but haven’t gone deep-sea fishing as of yet, perhaps on our next trip to Cabo.

There are many wonderful restaurants in the marina as well, all of them offering fresh seafood and tasty drinks.  On Sunday, while we were there, we came across a restaurant offering all you can eat oysters.  Since we love oysters, we definitely took advantage of that opportunity.  At night-time, the marina area really comes to life with plenty of things to do and opportunities to people watch.

The downtown area also has plenty of vendors where you can purchase local trinkets and bargain with the store owners to get the best price on you souvenirs.  At first it might feel awkward haggling over the price, but it is expected and don’t feel intimidated.  If you don’t want to go downtown, there are plenty of vendors walking up and down the beach bringing souvenirs to all of the resorts for you to purchase.

At the resorts themselves, you can arrange kayaking, paddle boarding, parasailing, jet skis, golf, and more.  There are also people walking the beach with horses so that you can take a romantic horse back ride along the beach.  Our favorite thing about Cabo is the size of the resorts.  There aren’t huge resorts with thousands of rooms, so whether going into town, walking the beach, or sitting around the pool, you’re not overwhelmed by tremendous crowds.  We can hardly wait for our next trip to the beach, but it is going to have to wait for a little while.
