I'm planning a surprise 30th birthday trip to Cabo in August (Thursday-Monday) for my husband. I am hoping to spend no more than $200-$250/night but less is fine. Looking for a nice hotel/resort--nothing fancy per se, but definitely not a dump or crappy service. Here's what we will for sure be doing so suggestions based on this would be great!:
GOLF- He is an avid golfer and will definitely want to play 2+ courses while there. Somewhere relatively close would be great. Anybody have a favorite must-play??
NIGHTLIFE- We like to have a great time drinking and dancing, and since he's turning 30 and might possibly start thinking a mid-life crisis is coming, I think we will probably be trying to act like we are closer to 21! Hotels/resorts near or in Cabo San Lucas is preferred since what I've been reading its definitely the party town.
ALL-INCLUSIVE??- Not sure about this one. Is it worth it? We aren't snobby/picky eaters but don't like crappy buffets either. We do like to drink though and will be throughout the day. Beer, wine, cocktails, shots...we like it all! Since we will be golfing at least two of the four days we are there, would it be dumb to go to an AI since we will be buying our own food some of the time?
BEACH- Since this is our first time to Mexico, let alone Cabo, we definitely want to be on a beach, I think. Or at least have views of the beach from a pool. I don't need swimming in the ocean per se, as I'm terrified of sharks, but my husband wouldn't mind if available.
Any other must-do must-see suggestions would be great! This trip is all about golfing and acting young so a restful zen experience isn't neccesary this time!
