Cabo Vacation!

The last 10 days I was away on an amazing and long anticipated vacation to Cabo San Lucas with B! We have been planning this trip since the beginning of the year and it was so awesome, I really enjoyed everything and was able to relax. If you’d like to see more photos you can see them on the post so click below!

We stayed at the Fiesta Americana Grand and did the “All-Inclusive” option. There really wasn’t more that we needed or wanted and the only thing we ended up paying for were the cigars B bought and our massages!

The hotel is really pretty, right on the beach and it’s a swimmable beach, which is pretty rare down there in front of hotels. We found the best snorkeling there as well. There was a great amount of fish right in front, which was really nice. They also have little huts to lay out under, which we did two days.

I can’t believe how fast time has gone and it was a great way to celebrate. cabo san lucas 2People have asked me, what did you guys do? 10 days!? Doesn’t that seem so long? No, it was seriously the perfect amount of time! We had enough time to relax and not stress out about doing things there and ‘fitting it all in’ before we left. It was also nice because B and I don’t see that much of each other with his work schedule so it was nice to know I had solid time with him and we had nothing to do.

The weather was pretty warm when we were there (mid 80′s at night, 95-100 during the day) and it was also muggy, but we made the best of it, and blasted the air conditioner in the room.

The sea was a little rough because of a tropical storm off the coast, but we were still glad we did it and had fun with it. The cool water never felt better when we jumped in once we finally got to the bay.

cabogopro5B always loved diving with his snorkel on, I always was confused and couldn’t’ dive properly without sucking in water.

It was the perfect amount of time and so nice to not worry about food or anything while we were away. The last evening before we left, we met up with a few people I work with who were down in the area for work and they took us to dinner at La Osteria in San Juan Del Cabo, and if you’re ever in the area, make SURE to visit! It was SO amazing, one of the best dinners of our lives. It was the perfect ambiance, incredible food, great company and wonderful service. I wish we could go back every week, such a gem.

It was a great time and though I totally planned on running and working out a bit while I was there, I just never got around to it and I don’t regret it one bit. It was really nice to not worry about everything and just enjoy every little bit of the time away. Now we’re back and getting back into the swing of things like doing tons of laundry and I’m looking forward to starting back up on a training plan and running again!

  1. Seriously – looks like paradise! We never got to go on a honeymoon because my husband started the fire academy the WEEK we got married, so we are waiting until the spring, and are planning on going to Cabo too! This seriously looks incredible and you have a killer tan! :)

    I just came back from a 10 day training break and it was perfect. Sometimes vacations need to be 100% rest both mental and physical! I thought yesterday’s long run would be horrible but in fact it was GREAT!

  3. I can’t wait to finally take another long vacation with D, we are way overdue!!! Glad you had a great time!

  4. Sandy says:

    Looks like you had a great time and some quality time together. I haven’t taken a vacation like this in a long time and probably should. Glad you enjoyed it and took a little break from running to take full advantage if the vacation and everything it had to offer.

    Beautiful!!! After a super speedy and successful running year, I think this is just what your body needed.

  7. Jen says:

    Ahhh, Cabo is the best! Looks like you guys did it right and soaked up your time alone together! Whenever my husband and I go, we even shut off our phones/wifi/etc. for the whole trip! It’s hard at first, but sooo relaxing.

  8. John says:

    Wow, I’m so jealous right now. Snorkeling and relaxing in the sun is my idea of a dream vacation.
