Hard times can make life less enjoyable. But I refuse to let the uncontrollable things control the way I live. So…. this year we are taking off and spending quality time in beautiful places with our favorite people! First trip of the year was Cabo in April. It was one of my best friend’s birthdays and one of our favorite places, so we decided to be spontaneous and book the trip in February. My husband and I went for our honeymoon 4 years ago and it was so great to go back. Everyone thought a weekend in Cabo was crazy and too short of a trip but it was PERFECT! We got there Friday around noon and left Sunday at 3pm. We laid by the pool, went horse back riding on the beach, ate some great food, took wave runners out to the arch, went into Cabo San Lucus for some tequila and dancing at Squid Row, had brunch on the beach, drank too many pina coladas and spent hours laughing and enjoying life. It was an amazing weekend. It was 48 hours well spent with some great people.
We stayed at our resort, Cabo Azul, in San Jose del Cabo. The resort is probably the most beautiful in Cabo and one of the only great things that came out of me buying into vacation ownership when I was only 19 years old. With it’s Spanish style architecture, infinity and warm serenity pools, Javier’s Restaurant, fire sculptures at night and water falls during the day, we are never disappointed in it’s luxury or beauty. It sits right on the beach and only 20 minutes from Cabo San Lucas. In just 2 hours we landed in a gorgeous place and spent a weekend relaxing, exploring and enjoying some well deserved spontaneity. I’ve always recommended weekend getaways and this one was amazing!
It’s easy to forget how amazing life can be. It’s important to remove yourself from situations that make you unhappy. I’ve been so caught up in a vicious cycle of hope and failure that I haven’t been able to enjoy all the wonderful things in my life. I decided to change that. I decided to just live… My people, special places and new perspective are all I’m focusing on this year.
48 Hour Trip Itinerary: On Friday we ate lunch at Flor de Noche at our resort. The tacos were average but the pina coladas were amazing! Then there was some beach time and a swim in the beautiful infinity pool. The resort booked the hour long sunset horse back ride on the beach which was $30/person. That night we ate dinner at Javier’s located on site at Cabo Azul. The food is great! Then we took a taxi into Cabo San Lucas and went to Squid Roe. Perfect place if you’re looking for dancing, a crazy party atmosphere and a lot of Americans. On Saturday, we slept in and then took a another taxi into Cabo San Lucas and ate lunch at The Office which was so good and right on the sand! We then rented a couple wave runners for $90/hour from some guys on the beach and rode out to the famous Arch and up and down the coast. Later that day we laid out at our pool at Cabo Azul with drinks and appetizers. We walked on the beach for awhile, swam in the warm serenity pools and sat in the jacuzzi. That night we went to the Jazz Tapas Bar down the street from the resort. A cute sidewalk restaurant with great food. Sunday morning we woke up and had brunch on the beach at Javier’s again. We finished the trip with another walk on the beach down by the water and then headed to the airport. And that is the recipe for an amazing 48 hour trip to Mexico!
