I want to thank my friend Joe Sasek for the inspiration to write this post. I recently wrote an article entitled “Why Do YOU Love Cabo San Lucas“, which resulted in some really great comments from so many of you. In my post, I shared one of my favorite traditions, going down to the adult pool at Grand Solmar later in the evening (usually there is nobody there, or perhaps a few folks in the hot tub), and having a great cigar and a nice glass of tequila. The experience is so peaceful, so grounding, I look forward to it every year.
Our Cabo Traditions
I like to sit on the outside edge of the hot tub, put my drink down and light up the cigar. I climb into the pool, grab my drink, then walk to the far wall. At night it is pretty dark for a resort, and there are plenty of stars and great moonlight over the ocean. Of course, the waves on Solmar beach are legendary, at least to the folks who stay there! It’s just a spectacular way to engage in my vacation!
We have many other great traditions as well. The moment we’re finished unpacking, we walk straight over to Taco Guss, grab some amazing tacos, and head over to Monkey business for a Cadillac Margarita. I capitalized that because Monkey Business makes the best Cadillac Maggie (well, except maybe my own haha) anywhere. Another tradition we have when we’re in Cabo during the summer months is taking the Nemo boat on an arch tour. It’s so peaceful, and the captains always have some new story to tell. You can learn a lot from a glass bottom boat captain if you tip well and a nice to them!
When we go to Cabo on adults only trips, we simply can not miss a meal at our favorite restaurant, Cocina Del Mar. If you’ve not been to Cocina Del Mar, and you enjoy fine dining with incredible views, you need to get there!
So What are Your Cabo Traditions?
One of the things that inspired me most about Joe’s comment on my post was how excited I got when he said he was going to try out one of my traditions. It was a really big ah ha! moment for me. Why not provide a place where we can share these little traditions so that others can experience Cabo the way we do?
I’m looking forward to trying some of yours!
