We live in Houston, Texas, so traveling to Mexico is easy! The flight is only about two and a half hours and Southwest Airlines flies direct! Who doesn’t love a direct flight to paradise?! We do!
Anyhow, we knew we wanted to get away after our wedding but knew we could only get away for a few days because we had taken so much time off for the actual wedding in Austin. So, we decided to go to Cabo! We got married in September, which is right in the middle of hurricane season so we knew we did not want to go to Cancun or anywhere else that is frequently affected by hurricanes. Since Cabo is rarely hit by hurricanes, we decided that would be a great place to unwind after the wedding festivities. The entire time we were there, we had beautiful sunny weather.
When we were looking for a place to stay in Cabo, we knew we had a short list of must haves:
- It must be on the beach.
- It must have a spa.
- It must be a place where if we didn’t feel like it, we wouldn’t have to leave.
After doing some research, we chose to stay at The Resort at Pedregal. And OMG we are so glad we did! The second we arrived, we were handed margaritas…and from that moment on, everything was perfection. The staff was helpful, kind and very observant of Mrs. Traveling honeymooners gluten free needs. Our suite had its own plunge pool that overlooked the ocean, and every night we could hear the waves crashing on the beach. The resort was perfection.
We chose to have a spa day our third day there and we both agree that the massages we received were the best massages we have ever had. The spa is large but extremely peaceful. It also has it’s own plunge pool with water that helps cleanse your body and a waterfall that crashes down into the plunge pool and is very relaxing.
The breakfast at the resort was delicious and they have plenty of gluten free, paleo, and vegan options. We ate a lot of fruits and vegetables for breakfast while we were there but they also had an omelet bar, waffle bar, and juice bar.
The only downside to staying at Pedregal is that people can not swim in the ocean near the resort because the waves are too big and the undertow is very strong. So on the last full day in Cabo, we decided to venture out into town and visit a beach where we could swim. The resort is a five minute walk from town but the resort also has a shuttle if you would rather ride. We chose to eat lunch at a local restaurant that overlooked the beach and had a blast.
Overall, we had a blast in Cabo and we will be going back in the near future.
Thank you for stopping by!
