Good? Bad? Recommendations?
Cabo is AMAZING!! Love it! I would make sure to stay on the Sea of Cortez side, not the Pacific side. You can’t swim on the Pacific side because the water is too rough and rocky beaches, but the Sea of Cortez side is gorgeous and the beach is perfect! Good luck and have fun! Be sure and take a water taxi over to Lover’s Beach for a day 🙂
Cabo is very nice and usually fairly affordable! We recently stayed at the Riu santa fe (not for our honeymoon) and it was nice but the food was awful and I’m really not picky! I heard the Riu Palace is very nice and there are plenty of amazing resorts. The water is not really swimable so if you like swimming in the ocean, the Mayan Rivera is probably a better option!
Oh so glad that you posted this! I am going to be adding a cash gift fund towards our honeymoon to our gift list on MyRegistry.com…but we are torn as to where our final honeymoon destination should be! It’s a toss up right now between Cabo and St. Lucia (Sandals Resort in St. Lucia). Still looking for some great hotel recommendations in Cabo…so I would also appreciate any advice on this topic as well!
We are just starting to do some research for our honey moon and Cabo came up… I’m going to subscribe to hear any/all advice too! 🙂 it looks like there is a lot of fun to be had — besides lounging on the beach.
I would recommend Puerto Vallarta instead to be honest. Cabo is very dry, desert like. Vallarta is lush and tropical. Cost wise, Peurto Vallarta is much more reasonable as well. We stayed at Dreams Neuvo Vallarta, and it was amazing. It is all inclusive, and a bit on the smaller side. All of the rooms have jacuzzi tubs on the balconies and amazing bath tubs in the room (and the maids bring fresh bubble bath every day:)). The food was amazing, and the best thing is it is all A la carte dining for lunch and dinner. They had two optional buffets while we were there, mexican and carribean. The Mexican one was yummy, the carribean was gross, but we just went to a restaurant for dinner. Breakfast is buffet style, and very good, with a taco bar, smoothie bar, and omelet bar. Room service was included and it was hit and miss, based off of which restaurant was open late that night. There is a privacy box for room service so you don’t even need to come to the door (pretty awesome for a honeymoon). Drinks are top shelf(ish). You have to ask for premium booze which basically is just name brands like Absolut, ecc… no Grey Goose or Patron, but still reasonable. You also get a bottle of Champagne for the honeymoon. The staff was amazing and very friendly. We tipped well, which helped. Cab rides into town were only $10, and the best part was the cab ride from the airport was $20 there, $12 back (they have to pay a fee to the airport when you are leaving the airport area). Last time we were in Cabo, our cab ride, into town, was $70. We booked our trip through bookit.com and only spent $1800 with flights out of Seattle.
In May, it won’t be too bad (hot). I just got back on Monday and we LOVED it. It’s hot but beautiful. We stayed at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach and it was amazing. Perfect if you want to drink argaritas and lay on the beach all day. We went to Cabo Wabo, did a cruise around the arch, kayaking, swimming, shopping, and lots of seafood eating 🙂 If you go, go to these restaurants:
Mi Casa (they have a trio and it’s beautiful there)
The Office (tables in the sand)
La Frida is a restaurant in the resort, but best food I’ve ever had.
Pm me if you have any questions
