Nothing compares to laying on the beach in Mexico. What makes it even better is laying next to your new spouse, knowing you have nothing to do for 5 full days -- except maybe go on a random Rhino Excursion along the coast. Thomas and I picked Los Cabos for our honeymoon spot because it allowed us to do exactly what we felt we needed after the wedding, relax!
Los Cabos is located on the tip of Baja California, where the Pacific meets the Gulf of California. The water is dangerous and turbulent and you would never want to swim in it, but it is gorgeous to look at. The waves are so loud you can hear them from anywhere in the resort.
This was Thomas' first venture into Mexico, and the first notch on our international traveling belt. The trip more than exceeded expectations. We spent our mornings laying by the quiet pool, would switch to the beach cabanas for lunch and then the large pool until sunset. It was the most relaxed either of us had felt and it is a feeling we have been chasing on every subsequent vacation.
The great part about our resort in Los Cabos was that it was all inclusive. They had several restaurants with a variety of food ranging from local Mexican, to Italian and even Asian fusion. Alcohol was included in the package and refills on margaritas flowed like water. It was a surreal experience to have a half empty cocktail only to be given another full glass right away. Many all inclusive resorts don't include alcohol so we got really lucky... and drunk!
On day three, Thomas decided he wanted to go explore, so we found a company who rented Yamaha Rhinos and a guide took us on a tour of the outskirts of Los Cabos. It was hot, dusty and bumpy, but the view of the ocean was phenomenal. Thomas loved testing the abilities of the Rhino on uphill treks and I held on for dear life, hoping we wouldn't tip over (which they told us could very easily happen).
If you have the chance to visit Los Cabos, I suggest you do. It's a relaxing vacation that is also extremely affordable, and you can't go wrong with that!
