My Cabo Guide/Rundown is FINALLY here! I wanted to recap our favorite places, things to do, what to see, and where to eat! Cabo is SO freakin’ fun and has a little bit to offer every kind of traveler.
The Cape – We stayed at the Cape, which I would say was a younger crowd, never saw kids, and had tons to offer in the way of nightlife- even if you never wanted to leave the hotel. I think it’s pretty clear by now that we LOVED our stay there. Full Disclosure: we did NOT have a single thing comped – so no advertisement here, just a genuine good time; with fantastic service, and impressive amenities. Add to that, they had the most amazing breakfast spread and menu each morning and after there was a little glass coffee shop right above that was so cute; it ALMOST trumped how good the iced coffee was everyday. Almost. They had an extensive room service menu, two restaurants, and full service bar in the main areas and rooftop (my fav.) I loved the rooftop because every night they had live music to watch the sunset to. Apparently, you can also request a private beachside movie showing and anything else you might need – just ask. The service was unparalleled, and each of our dinner reservations were booked ahead of time by the hotel concierge who was on-call at all times. Lots of girls’ trips, wedding parties, and people looking to have a good time in general. The crowd was younger but no kids. If you know – you know.
The Resort at Pedegral : This is where the famous El Faralon Restaurant was located (see below). They built this amazing resort by digging through a mountain -then building the housing up, around, and on the other side. Its pretty spectacular just pulling into the property but when you get thru to the other side where the sunset meets the crashing rocks – game over. It was much more quiet of a resort and reminded me more of a spa-like getaway than anything. Much more serene than the Cape, but different strokes for different folks.
The Esperanza – Sleepy like the resort at Pedegral and perfect to spot celebrities, this luxe resort is is a little off the beaten path but closer to the airport. The views and sunsets are insane and restaurants inside will keep you there. It’s pricey but perfect for a honeymoon or anniversary trip.
Be sure to make reservations ahead of your trip! I felt like everywhere in Cabo required one – especially at the nicer places.
MANTA – We ate dinner at the restaurant in the hotel, Manta, that had amazing food and ambiance – watch the waves crash below you from the dockside tables by candlelight. I would HIGHLY reccomend this place for people staying at the Cape as well as those staying elsewhere.
FLORA FARMS – Unreal. About a 25 minute drive from other resorts in Cabo- depending on where you stay – and WORTH the drive. Top 10 meal of my life. They have cute little shops and places to grab a drink before they seat you. The pictures and backdrops are instagram heaven and the everything from the service, presentation, and meal was top notch. We’ll be back for sure.
ACRE – Smiliar to Flora Farms and in the same general vicinity – fully sustainable menu like Flora Farms and we heard its on the same level – will be the first place we try on the next trip back!
EL FARALON – This is the place for ambiance. Its absolutely gorgeous at La Pedegral Resort and they make a big display of bringing you in- showing you the Cliffside space – and finally drop you to wait in their outdoor Champagne bar. Get there a bit before your reservation to catch the insane sunsets and, of course, grab some bubbles before your meal. They only serve fresh catch and let me tell you, the seafood does NOT disappoint.
Sunset Cruise or Deep Sea Fishing Charter. Visit the famous Arch and rock formations right off the Los Cabos coast. Deep Sea Fishing is also very popular – don’t forget your dramamine. You can spend the day at Flora Farms and finish up with a beautiful late afternoon lunch. For those looking for a little more action, there’s a new Omnia Day Club with famous DJs from all over the world spinning. Be sure to reserve your table or cabana in advance! Cascade was there when we were visiting and the place was packed! We spent most of our days by the pool at the Cape…where they have live music or set playlist to get the mood going in the afternoons. It was truly such a fun place to stay. Horseback riding tours and parasailing were also popular activities amongst the people we met on our trip – although we never had the chance to do either. Horseback would have been my activity of choice.
Needless to say, we will be back. It was the perfect mix of west coast Cali meets Mexican getaway and a great place to enjoy both a crazy fun time or lay low and chill. Not to mention – I never saw a single cloud in 7 days. Thats pretty amazing if you ask me. Oh yeah, and the dry heat. Because, HAIR.
Hopefully this little guide is useful and make sure to comment or DM me on IG if you have any specific questions regarding our trip!
