a week in los cabos

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico has truly grown to be one of my favorite destinations in the world. That statement was really put to the test when my boyfriend and I decided to use a week’s worth of PTO days all towards a 7 day vacation in the same place.

7 days was PERFECT, and when it was time to leave on our final day, after our last morning of watching surfers catch beautiful rides along Monuments beach and relaxing by the pool spotting whales jumping in the distance, we made a promise (if able) to return every year the first week of March.

I was able to mix a little work into our trip to help with the friends & family discount we so generously received, but for the most part we un-plugged and enjoyed consistently amazing weather, food, cocktails, trips to Flora Farms (my fav!), and a bit of whale watching.
