Where To Stay

The first thing you are going to need to take care of while you are there is having a place to stay. There are a few things to keep in mind. Do you want to be near the water or closer to the city? Would you be more comfortable in a more natural setting or do you need the comforts of home? What kinds of amenities are you interested in?

How much are you willing to spend? One of the most favorite places to stay in Cabo are the many resorts. There are a few with on site five star restaurants, infinity edge pools, and stunning views of the ocean from your room. There is also fun to be had in game rooms, on site gyms, and swim up bars.

What To Do

When visiting a new place, even when you have a scheduled itinerary, you should take the time to tour the environment. Take an evening stroll with the love of your life. Many times, you will discover diamonds in the rough. Little jewels in the background of the bustling city life that just don’t seem to make it into the tourist brochures.

However, there are a few things that you should check out that Cabo is well known for. The first is its unprecedented access to a gorgeous underwater adventure. Take a snorkeling trip to see the natural underwater beauty of a rocky coast covered in sponges and teeming with eels, puffers, rays, angelfish, and the occasional reef shark.

Second, consider taking an ATV tour. If you love to take the adventure off road, this is the plan for you. There are a few tours that offer trips over cannon walls, through desert terrain, and dry river beds. It’s a great way to spend a few hours in nature.

Lastly, consider Cabo’s nightlife. Some of the most popular clubs to hang out at are El Squid Roe, Cabo Wabo, Hard Rock Cafe, Roxx, Barometro, Mambo Cafe, Zoo Bar & Dance, and the Giggling Marlin. There is also the option of the floating discos if you would rather feed your boogie fever.

How Much To Bring

The thing to remember, here, is that you are in Mexico. You will, first, have to make sure that you retain access to U.S. dollars and Pesos. Each person is different. So, it’s hard to give an exact amount of how much you should take with you.

The general rule of travel, to any country, is never to have too much cash on you at one time. In the most unfortunate case that you were robbed, this would limit your loss. Things to keep in mind here would be how much you plan on spending to eat out.

Which adventures do you plan on partaking of? How much time do you plan to spend in the local shopping scene? It is recommended that you use your credit or debit card for the hotel or resort you choose to stay in, but utilize cash everywhere else.

This will cut down the chances for credit card fraud. The last thing on the list of things to consider, as far as expenses, is that you make sure to have a backup financial plan. You can never be too prepared.

A trip to Cabo San Lucas is where you need to be if you are looking for an exciting change of scenery that can offer you the peace you so desperately need, as well. Use these tips when you plan your trip.
