Just the week before last I took a week vacation, along with friends, to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. The great thing about getting to Cabo is it’s only a short two hour flight from Los Angeles. Then you’re in paradise. Or at least, staying at the fantastic all-inclusive Pueblo Bonita Sunset Beach Golf & Spa Resort is. My friends own a timeshare and vacation there annually.
The sprawling resort sits north of the tourist town of Cabo, on the Pacific Ocean side, carved through a mountainous area. Just below the resort is an enclave a mansions and beachfront properties of the wealthy, apparently Bill Gates owns a home in the area. The property is secure and gated, making it also very private for guests.
Our corner unit included a jacuzzi on the balcony and ocean front views. We spent time here daily hanging out after the pool or in the early evening. Fantastic sunset views too.
Every evening from our balcony we took in this view and the sound of the ocean waves crashing.
The resort is built into the side of a mountain area with steep inclines. Golf carts are available to transport guests along these pathways. Throughout are various gardens and sanctuaries with birds, flamingos, and lots of lush landscaping.
On one occasion we did leave the resort to spend a day walking around the small tourist town of Cabo. Shops, bars, and a mall line the Marina area. Off the beaten path is a local restaurant called Maro’s Shrimp House. Known for their shrimp and lobster and some crazy way of delivering a certain specific drink table side - you’ll have to go to experience it yourself!
Maro’s has had some famous patrons too - autographed photos line the walls where you can take a black marker to them yourself. We signed our names too!
Back at the resort, which features several of its own restaurants too, is a Culinary Hall, basically a more upscale food court with various themed options including Asian, Diner, Mexican, Italian, Deli, salads, gelato, coffee, and a bar.
The great thing is it was part of our all-inclusive package. I had a really good beet salad one day from the salad themed section.
There’s also one restaurant that has a nightly themed buffet. We went one night for the Argentine buffet and dined outside on the patio with this view.
And lastly, most days were spent poolside under an umbrella for seven warm sun filled days. This is the Sky Pool with its infinity edge and a view of the Pacific.
Thanks to my friends for a fun escape to Cabo! Lots of jokes, banter, drinks, food, memories...
