¡BIENVENIDOS!
This trip certainly gave us a warm welcome!

We were lucky enough to travel to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico a few weeks ago for our best friends’ wedding. With almost 60 people traveling to Mexico, we definitely had a ton of fun connecting, celebrating & enjoying Cabo!

On Sunday we arrived, didn’t waste any time by grabbing a margarita, and made our way to the hotel! The bride + groom had dreamed up the cutest welcome bags with Mexican themed items to greet us!

Breathtaking, really.

Monday started our week off with a bang! We had the opportunity to ride CAMELS! Yes, I said  c a m e l s.

What a fun experience! While the boys were out fishing, us gals headed out to the country side, took in all of the desert landscape and hopped on the humpy backs of these adorable creatures! We were then treated to an incredible, authentic dish of molé + all the fixings, learned how to make tortillas and ended with a superb tequila tasting–toasting to the bride!

Although it was more touristy than I’m used to, I would still definitely recommend this experience!

Fun fact: The last time I rode a camel was in front of the pyramids in Egypt as a child.

This was the most talkative and ‘grumpy’ (& my favorite) of the bunch–Luisito!

Before we knew it, it was time to head over to the Mexican Fiesta at Playa Grande! This lovely evening can be summed up by–good food, great friends, banda music and waiters that insisted just ‘one more tequila!’

Salud to these two beauties in my life! Love you B + Nonnie. Wearing our new custom coordinate bracelets to always remember this trip to Cabo–all the love!

Tuesday we (Aaron, Connor, Marti, Augie + I) enjoyed the pool + beach at our resort, Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa, and played in the immense waves–in a childlike way. Soaking up the sun & losing track of time. I like how vacation does that to you.

The water taxi is another thing I recommend–for $10, you get a boat ride with gorgeous views. Definitely a great bang for your buck in the day time (out to Lover’s + Divorce Beach) or for sunset!

Love the wind whipping past my face & the calming splash of the water along the sides . . . & it definitely doesn’t hurt when the destination is as gorgeous as the arches were!

Our first days in Cabo were a success! To read about the rest of our adventures, see my second Cabo post xoxo
