133. Cabo Wabo – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

This bar and restaurant, owned by Sammy Hagar, was on our list of things to do while in Cabo. We had planned on going mid-week to break up the monotony of the meals and sub-par cocktails at our all-inclusive resort. But the day before we had planned to go, we were lounging down by the pool bar when a guy from Canada strikes up a conversation with me. He asked if we had been to […]

132. Hotel California – Todos Santos, Mexico

We had definitely planned to stop at the Hotel California on our day out and about but had certainly not planned on spending the night.  In fact, we had nothing but the clothes on our backs.  But sometimes plans are meant to be changed and “Plan B” can be way more fun than “Plan A”.   The hotel, made famous by the Eagles song of the same name (although I have heard they vehemently deny […]

131. Todos Santos – Mexico

This was stop two following the waterfall hike on our drive around the island. We had really only planned it as a quick stop to visit the famed Hotel California but found the town to be so darn cute and colorful that we spent a couple of hours walking around it. By this time we had worked up quite a thirst and were told that the best award winning margaritas could be found directly across […]

130. Sol de Mayo Waterfall – Sierra Laguna Biosphere, Los Cabos, Mexico

It’s easy to think of Los Cabos as a series of photogenic beaches and luxury resorts. However, an entirely different world lies in the striking desert hills away from those brilliant blues of the Sea of Cortez.  The truth is that this dramatic desert landscape holds some enchanting surprises—including authentic Baja villages and hidden waterfalls. One of the real highlights of a trip out to this area (still located within the municipality of Los Cabos) […]

129. El Arco – Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

The most distinctive and popular landmark of Cabo San Lucas is the rugged El Arco (The Arch) rock formation that erupts from the sea at the tip of the Baja Peninsula. Also known as Land’s End, El Arco is a three stories high and is called “Land’s End” because, as the crow flies, if you followed a line due south from here, you would not touch land again until you reached the South Pole. Getting […]

128. Riu Palace – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

This was our first all-inclusive resort and we had heard the good, the bad, and the ugly from friends and coworkers who stay at them regularly. For the most part, the name Riu Palace is synonymous with consistent good quality so we chose them when booking in Cabo. The location was great with a view of El Arco almost everywhere and we were able to walk the beach to downtown Cabo. We didn’t really have […]
