Cabo San Lucas

When I Went: June 2012

Was That the Best Time of Year to Go? If you’re a lover of fishing, go during a new moon (June-October).  Water is starting to warm up, fish will feed during the day, and the striped Marlin are aplenty. During the summer the striped marlin move out and the blue marlin move in.

Why I Went There: It’s familiar, and there is a secret side of Cabo that is beautiful and amazing and not your run-of-the-mill tourist destination. We don’t stay in the all-inclusive resorts; we rent houses or stay in a small hotels in town within walking distance of the best little hole-in-the-wall bars and restaurants.  Cabs are easy to flag down, people are amazing and friendly and there is so much to do. It’s family friendly or it’s the perfect couples retreat.

Who Went With Me? My husband

We Stayed Here: Rented a Condo on from a lovely Canadian couple

You Won’t Want to Miss: Spend a day lounging on the beach at The Office

Eat Here: Anywhere in the marina

Play Here: Snorkeling at Lover’s Beach off a kayak.  Rent a kayak, pack a lunch, some drinks, and your towels, and go snorkel and lounge all day on a private beach!

If I Went Again: Stay longer!

How Did You Get There From Dallas? Flew non-stop

Other Tips For Fellow Travelers: Best way to go is rent a house in Cabo San Lucas! Don’t stay all-inclusive, as the resorts are 20 minutes from all the action! Staying in town is BEST! We rent from Beautiful condos and houses and so cheap!
