Cabo Wabo

Hello Spring Break 2009! While Todos Santos was much more our speed, we had to go to Cabo San Lucas if we are going to boast that we’ve hit all the beach destinations in Mexico after the trip is through. Sorry if you’re one of those people that loves the all-inclusive, we aren’t. However if you’re more like us, rest assured that Cabo can be done low-key. After touring the RV parks in the area and being disgusted by the size of the other rigs, we took our first official hotel break and boy did we find a good one. A hidden gem right in the heart of Cabo, Hotel Los Milagros was a perfect place to call home for a few days (and a good bargain too). We must have been a sight for sore eyes, because when we showed up, Sandra the owner hooked us up with the Penthouse, complete with a full kitchen. Now if we can only find an apartment like this in Antigua, we will die and go to heaven!

We spent our first day in Cabo on Playa Amor, losing our obvious gringos-from-snow territory look while sunning and snorkeling on the beach. Things were going simply swimmingly until 3pm when our water taxi failed to pick us up. (Note: make sure you get a receipt from the water taxi driver when in Cabo). 1 hour of waiting and 100 pesos later we hopped a ride on another taxi (luckily there a plethora) and made it back to the spring break madness.

All showered up and ready to go out for dinner, we strolled past a great little shop – Arte de Origen- (not the typical Mexican tourist junk) where I fell in love with some artwork that cost more than our night at Los Milagros. I bravely suggested to Ben that if we hit up the supermercado and make a simple dinner in instead of dining out, we’d be able to afford to make a purchase tomorrow, and lucky for me, he liked the idea. A night of grilled cheese and tomato soup (which we both love by the way) was definitely worth our great souvineer from Cabo (photo to come later).
