My one week stay in Los Cabos started off with a hurricane and a flight cancelled just when we were about to board our plane from Toronto to Mexico. Apparently, the airport in Cabo is no longer accepting flights flying in or leaving the place. Thankfully my stay in One & Only Palmilla didn’t start till the next day, I kinda felt already there would be some hindrance ( as always ) along the way. I have learned some really good lessons from my recent trips that flight delays and cancelled flights are so much common lately that it keeps on happening mostly this summer. I think it happened for the best because the next morning when we arrived in Los Cabos, The Sun was out and ready to play and for my whole remaining 7 days it never rained. We visited two parts of Los Cabos, the first one in San José del Cabo and the second one was Cabo San Lucas.
During our first 4 days, we stayed at One & Only Palmilla, which was located in the more quiet town of San Jośe del Cabo. A much-needed getaway and relaxation resort perfect for some serenity. I had the best 4 days just staying in the resort and enjoying the spa facilities while getting spoiled by the staff and amazing 5-star restaurants. ( read more HERE about my experience ) We didn’t leave the resort and saved the last 2 days exploring the more vibrant and upbeat town of Cabo San Lucas where surfers hang out, nightlife is left & right then the marina for all the water activities together with island hopping sailboats are. We stayed at the beautiful The Cape Hotel while in San Lucas. It’s definitely a different vibe from One & Only. The energy of the place is so inspiring and it makes you so energetic that you wanna go out and explore. We spent our first day here just enjoying the amazing vibe of the resort and beautiful scenery while watching surfers from its infinity pool. We tried The Ledge Restaurant for lunch. They have a really good menu and you must order French toast if you’re staying here! It’s so addictive. I also had the best time at their Rooftop for some sunset drinks while listening to a local band. We also explored the downtown area for some nightlife and yummy street tacos. The next day we hopped on a Luxury Sailboat for a whole day filled activity. We wanted to rent a water taxi but figured this is probably better so we get to meet some people too and way cheaper than hiring your own private sailboat. I really enjoyed the paddle boarding but it was seriously hard because of the waves. I tried snorkelling but it was just all blur. A must do activity here are surfing and sailing. Also, a must-see is the famous Cabo San Lucas Arch and lovers beach together with divorce beach.
This place is absolutely a dream come true, I wish I have stayed longer and explored more but I needed to get back to Toronto ASAP. I was even scared to travel here because of all the news I have been hearing about the place, but it was actually one of the safest destinations I’ve ever been.
I can’t wait to be back Cabo!
