This forum was REALLY helpful to us as we planned our week in Cabo I thought that I would share our experience in this Trip Report.
We arrived in the new wing of the airport (for the past two years it didn’t seem that it would ever be finished). Very smooth getting through – however a ridiculous amount of moths have taken up residence on the big glass windows which was wild and kind of creepy. We were just happy to be there so thought of it as a happy greeting.
We used Cilento Lindo for transportation for the first time and will always use them in the future. Thanks for that tip for sure! We were off with our Coronas in no time!
We are owners at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach and had a Presidential suite near the main pool (building 32). We didn’t so AI as we wanted to enjoy the restaurants in town. I’ll try to post a review on their TA page, but feel free to PM me with any questions that you have.
We’re from Denver so it was critical that we could be in front of a TV in time for the Broncos to defeat the Ravens. So we had snacks and drinks at the bar by the pool. Food was average and the game was worse.
We decided to try Where in Cabo for our grocery (tequila) delivery – which worked out great! We ordered our items in advance and always received timely responses. They delivered our items right on time and the fee was reasonable. We’ll use them again.
Restaurants that we tried while in Cabo:
- Hacienda Cocina y Cantina (patio seating – amazing food)
- The Office (on the beach for breakfast - the shrimp omelet was outstanding)
- Gordo Lele’s (first time here – REALLY good chorizo tacos)
- Maro’s Shrimp House (we make it here every year and love it each time – bulldogs (of course) and shrimp/lobster combo)
- Baja Brewing (gigantic burgers – great beer)
We actually did two different whale watching tours – one with Whale Watch Cabo and one with Cabo Expeditions. Both were good, but definitely different experiences. Whale Watch Cabo was much more informative – our guide was a marine biology student that taught us a lot about the whales and their behavior. Sadly, the whales were a little shy and we didn’t see too many. This would be a trip that I’d take my kids on! The Cabo Expeditions tour was on a Zodiak boat (a really fast raft). It was a hoot, and definitely necessary to hold on tight. We had several intimate whale experiences with no other boats around. Not as educational, but we had gotten that on our first tour. The whales were much more cooperative on this day and we saw many.
We also went fishing for a full day with Red Rum. Would ABSOLUTELY recommend them to anyone interested in fishing. Alex and Jesus took us out to where the tuna were almost jumping into the boat. We caught 13 tuna in about an hour!! The dolphins were swimming along the boat which was an added bonus! No marlin, but had a couple tease us a bit. They packed/ froze two of the tuna for us to take back home and sent one more back to the hotel for us to have for dinner. (We left the other 10 for the crew and their families) This was an amazing trip.
Finally, we did the sunset dinner cruise with Caborey. Unfortunately, the clouds were blocking the amazing sunset that we had seen in previous days, but it was a fun trip. The food is really rich and the show was a lot of fun. It was a little more pricy that I think it was worth, but if you can get discounts from your hotel it might be worth it. We did enjoy the trip.
That’s the quick summary. We’re already trying to book another week in October so I hope to be on that role call soon! We missed the meet & greet at Cabo Blue - but will hope to make the one next trip.
