We scored a great deal on an all-inclusive resort in San Jose del Cabo for our honeymoon. Five days, four nights of sun, good food and relaxation. Although we weren’t able to leave immediately after the wedding, it worked out really well that we were able to spend Monday (the day after our wedding) visiting with friends and family who had come from out of town for the wedding, and would have a day at home once we got back before going back to work.
Tuesday, we were off to Cabo! We got off to a bit of a stressful start due to LA traffic – we almost missed our flight, and it was the only one going out that day!! The gal at baggage check had to call the gate to see if they would accept us! Oh no! Thankfully, we were able to make our plane and our travels were otherwise smooth.
Upon arriving in Cabo, we inadvertently got sucked into a time share pitch. We didn’t realize what was happening until it was too late to back out without a hard sales pitch, and we don’t MIND getting things for free… so we ultimately went a long with it. We were able to relax at our resort for the rest of the day, and the next morning we were picked up to go to the timeshare pitch in Cabo San Lucas. It was a hard sell – we learned a lot about how to say “no” but they were really persistent. We finally got out of there early afternoon, with our freebies in hand and spent the next few hours relaxing at the resort beach. Before long, it was time to head to our (free!) sunset dinner cruise!
We had amazing weather, and ran into another couple we had met earlier at the beach. We had a great time, and the views were great!!
After a busy first full day in Cabo, we spent our second full day in full relaxation mode. We parked ourselves on the lounge chairs right on the beach and read and napped all day. It was wonderful!!
Our last full day in Cabo started with a walk along the ocean, then spent the rest of the day hanging out in the pool and socializing with a fun group of people we met.
Our honeymoon was the perfect mix of relaxation, exploring and fun. We were really surprised by how tired we were after the wedding, and it was just enough time to recharge before heading back to reality. We’re definitely looking forward to coming back!
