Thanks for all the great tips before we left for our 4 night stay. Overall, it was just what we wanted, relaxing, relaxing, relaxing. The grounds at the Pacifica are beautiful, our suite (once we got in, problem detailed under hotel review) was great with a huge balcony and fantastic ocean view.
We ventured into town due to a 1st night bad experience at Siempre, the hotel restaurant, otherwise we would have been content to stay put at the hotel. We went to Mi Casa with another couple who we shared a cab with. That was fun, we loved the colorful atmosphere and the food was good. We ran into Cabo Wabo and sat outside and chatted with a nice couple from Michigan while the crowd got rowdy. The next night we went to Pancho's, tequila tasting was up in the air because the tasting master wasn't back - so we didn't get to do that, but I was very pleased with my lobster tail and grilled shrimp dinner - and my husband enjoyed his combination dinner which included the famed chile relleno.
On our last night, just out of desperation to not eat at Siempre, we went next door to Sunset to the La Nao where we had the Italian buffet, not very good, but we didn't really care.
I have to say, overall, I think I enjoy a place that's a bit cleaner. I've not been to many tropical destinations, but compared to Kaui - there was a lot of trash around Cabo, graffiti, half-constructed and abandoned structures, not a very overall visually appealing area. Even driving in to our hotel there are mounds of dirt and steel beams that don't seem to be an 'active' construction area. I expect to see that in a city, but not a resort destination.
We didn't really find the downtown area that appealing. We might try a different destination next time we get a non-family obligation vacation.
I do miss my poolside pina colada - -
