A couple weeks ago Austin and I traveled to Mexico to celebrate our 3 year wedding anniversary! We both had never been to Cabo, so we were very excited to experience this new place together. Many of you have asked about places to stay and eat so I wanted to be sure a do a recap of our trip.
Please feel free to email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or comment with further questions.
Where to Stay?
During our trip we stayed at the Riu Palace. This resort was absolutely beautiful and we loved all of the amenities. The Riu Palace is all inclusive, and offered 24h room service. It was fabulous!
During the day we spent most of our time by the pool or beach. We loved staying by the pool because of the service. We had snacks, drinks, waters brought to us all day long…it was pretty nice! Our overall experience was very positive. We would definitely want to go back again!

Dining in Cabo
Although our resort was all inclusive, we still wanted to spend a few nights out and explore the city. One place that I highly recommend is Hacienda Cocina y Cantina. This restaurant was simply gorgeous and the food was amazing. Honestly, this was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. We ate there with some of our friends and between the table we ordered the Molcajete and the Carnitas. For something sweet we all split the Churros De La Casa and Pastel De Cuatro Leches. I will travel to Cabo again just to eat here!
We also went to Bar Esquina one night. This place came highly recommended by some of our friends and I am so glad we were able to check it out. This upscale atmosphere was very trendy and perfect for after dinner drinks. We didn’t try the food, but based on what I saw, it looked delicious.
We did not have a chance to check out The Office, but we have heard it’s a great experience for breakfast or lunch. Next time, we will be sure to visit there!
Cabo is such a beautiful place and while you’re there you must visit the famous Arch and Lovers Beach. They’re are a few ways to get there. We took a glass bottom boat to tour The Arch and were dropped off at Lovers Beach for a few hours.
If you choose to get dropped off at Lovers Beach there’s a few things to keep in mind. Be sure to make sure your tour guide and you have an agreement on what time you want to be picked up at. That sounds obvious, but ours forgot, so we ended up spending a little more time than originally planned…but it was all good! This is a private beach, so it’s very small, however people do like to visit. So it can get a little crowded. I think a trip in the morning would be more ideal than mid afternoon. Make sure you pack a beach bag of SPF, snacks and waters. There’s not much shade, so you can purchase an umbrella for rent or find a spot in shade. We had a great time and it was a neat experience. It’s a must do if you’re in Cabo!
