Cabo, Cabo, Cabo...

My last visit to Cabo San Lucas was when I was pregnant with Hailey.  John and I went on a 7-day Mexican Riviera cruise.  We had a few hours in Cabo so we took a glass bottom boat tour to Los Arcos and Lover's Beach then walked around the town.


18 years later I came back with Hailey for a week at the beautiful Hacienda Del Mar.  After a rough start getting out of Salt Lake with a canceled flight and a day later than expected, we finally arrived and made every moment count!



After a morning of Zumba, water aerobics, cooking class and an 80-minute massage (they were running a 40% off special and I couldn't resist!) we headed out on a private 2-1/2 hour sunset horseback ride on the beach.



Another day got us up bright and early for an outdoor adventure of ziplining, rapelling, rock climbing and more.  We loved it!!





Couldn't miss swimming with the dolphins which included an hour of touching, swimming, kissing and riding "Nacho."





We spent an afternoon in the Flea Markets searching for plates, piggy banks and silver jewelry.   Found everything we wanted after 4 hours and a lot of haggling.


Our final adventure took us out for the afternoon on a speedboat to Chileno Beach to snorkel with sea scooters, paddle boards and kayaks.  Que bueno!


 Besides the tremendous amount of eating, we visited the local Costco and Walmart to see where Garrett has been shopping...


...and Hailey chose finding dogs over men (thank goodness!) at almost every place we visited.



...and she adopted a cat for the week by feeding it a bowl of milk each day on our balcony.


...but her one true love remained the same!


We created so many fun memories and truly enjoyed every day together.  I am already booking my next trip back to the same place but I think I'll take John with me next time...

It looks and sounds like an amazing trip! I need to add it to my list. What a fun way to enjoy those last moments before she's off for the Y. Time sure flies!

What an amazing trip. I'm so glad you had a great time. We love Cabo! It is one of my favorite destinations - direct flight, same time zone, and beautiful beaches.
