Travel Diary : Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
This was a Much needed and way Over Due Vacation!!!
I love traveling and seeing new places and I haven't been on a vacation in a Hot Minute, so I was super excited when my girls (The Crew) decided to plan a trip to Cabo!!! We will talk about My Crew in a little bit, and I will share all about our adventures during that week as well. I want to give some tips also, and share what I learned during this trip.
We decided to go to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico as our first trip Abroad together as friends. Mexico is close by (Since we are in California), so it was perfect. Our trip was From October 10th - 16th and October is a good time to vacation, because it's not super busy like it is in the summer time. If you don't want to be part of the crazy Party Scene that is something to think about. We stayed at the Sandos Finisterra, and we had an amazing Ocean View. I got up almost every morning and went out on our balcony to look out at the ocean before it got to hot. The Humidity was not a Joke!!! It was 90s pretty much during that entire week!!!
On day 1 we got settled in our hotel and then hit the ground running with different activities on Day 2 until our last day. There was an all inclusive option with our hotel, which I highly recommend, because we didn't have to worry about where we were going to eat everyday... it was all there in our hotel.
My Favorite part of the of the trip were the activities!!! We did an activity almost everyday, and even though I was exhausted after everything and felt like I did a full body workout during vacation. I had the time of my life and did things that I have never done before. I was super nervous, but you have to get out there and try things at least once just to say that you did it!!
We Rode ATVs, went Snorkeling, Zip Lining and went on a City tour.
After a day of Extreme Sports... We went Snorkeling and went on a Pirate boat adventure!!!
City Tour... Sight Seeing and Partying
It's not vacation with out going out and dancing the night away...
I'm happy I was able to go to Cabo and have this experience with my friends...
Some tips and things that I learned on this trip are...
- Beware of Scammers!!!
- It is easy to get a deal while out shopping, don't take the first price given. There are tons of stores with the same exact things in them and everyone has their own prices.
- Bring plenty of Tip Money!!! Everyone in Cabo seems to work for Tips, and in every Taxi, excursion, tour... ( I could go on for Days!! They all ask for tips)
- Don't eat the Lettuce or the Salad!! They always say don't drink the water in Mexico and the produce is washed with the water there, so it's not a good idea if you are out in town. At your Hotel or Resort you should be ok.
- Flying Spirit Airlines is a Terrible Idea!!!!
I look forward to learning more along the way and sharing my next adventure!!!
