I have gone back and forth with all the options that Cabo has to offer. I am starting to feel the immense pressure to “get it right” and find the perfect mix of relaxing/dining/drinking/activities. Lucky for me picking the destination was a no brainer. We will be in Cabo Mid October for our 9 night honeymoon and we could not be more excited reading all the posts on here.
First dilemma is the AI vs. exploring all the great restaurants in Cabo. We love to eat out and would like to research restaurants for dinners, but we also plan on breakfast and lunch as well as poolside drinks at the resort. I am at a loss for what is the most cost effective choice. The $95 a day AI makes it tough to add on a $100+ dinner and at the same time a $40 resort lunch & beers is a bit high.
Second Dilemma is location, we’ve already ruled out San Jose del Cabo though we might do the last two nights up there as a change of pace. The around Cabo options are the PB Sunset or Pacifica, Grand Salamar, Casa Dorada, and the Hacienda Encantada. The swimming thing isn’t a big issue on the pacific side just want a great resort. While the 5+ star resorts would be nice I’m afraid it’s outside the budget. Side note, Costco travel has great deals to the PB’s in which one of our two $650 flights is essentially “free” meaning even if we end up at the all inclusive we’d have more fund for activities/dinners out.
Third dilemma is how to accomplish all the activities, I’m thinking of a day by the pool then dinner in town followed by a day out and about and dinner at the resort. We plan on snorkeling, sailing, lover’s beach, Dinner at Pedregal, tequila tasting, Todos santos day trip (hotel California) and a day of sport fishing.
Any and all help will be much appreciated! For now I’ll just have to dream of margaritas and shrimp tacos till then!
