Cabo San Lucas

Updated: Jul 2, 2020



Cabo may just be the best version of a quick and easy paradise getaway. George and I had the most incredible time celebrating our honeymoon soaking up the sun, drinking skinny margs (yes he drinks skinny margs) & unwinding from the world around us. Cabo gets an A+ rating for maximum chill.

We flew out of San Jose on a non-stop 3hr flight on Alaska Air into Cabo San Lucas. It couldn’t get any easier flying from the west coast. Typically flights from all major cities within the US to Cabo are fairly reasonable. Also if you’ve never flown Alaskan air before, highly recommend. So many of their airplanes are new and every single one I have been on has been extremely bright and clean.

When you land in Cabo and collect your bags, just outside baggage claim there are a hand full of bars awaiting your order. Highly recommend grabbing a tequila pineapple before finding your driver and heading 30+ minutes into town or to your resort.

We simply had our resort set up our driver to and from the airport. This is a must do beforehand. Highly recommend when traveling internationally to always have your first and last rides scheduled before, makes the day go by so much easier.

“Cabo” consists of two major towns, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. to get from one town to the other its about a 30 minute drive. Most of the action you hear about happens in Cabo San Lucas. The main marina you would take when going out on a boat is there as well as many bars, restaurants and shops.

We stayed about half way between the two towns on a stretch of land where many resorts are. The resort we chose was Solaz a Luxury Collection Resort by Marriott.

Solaz is a relaxing desert inspired natural earthy tones escape from the busy world, resort. We LOVED it! We had a one bedroom suite with its own outdoor ground level terrace and plunge pool.

Such a sweet staff as well, we loved the thoughtful little chocolate message in our room as we checked in.

One night at the resort we scheduled a private sunset beach dinner for George and I. It was so romantic and beautiful to be out on the beach by ourselves watching the sun go down over the water.

We went on two amazing boat rides while in Cabo. The first was a private 60′ yacht with Seashine Baja . It was just as amazing as it sounds. One of my favorite things to do when possible is be out on the water. George and I had the entire boat to ourselves with a captain and crew who whipped up amazing food and drinks for us all day. They were so fun and professional, everything you could imagine from a luxury experience company.

They took us to lands end and lovers beach and we even anchored and swam in the ocean! We fed fish swimming under us and saw a baby whale swimming right along side our boat.
