Cabo Travel Guide
Anyone who knows us knows that we spend a lot of time in Cabo. We’ve both been visiting the Baja Coast with our families for years. Its where my kids learned to surf. It’s a quick trip from Aspen, the weather is always perfect, the people are wonderful, and the tacos are good. It’s our go-to spring break spot. Check out our Cabo travel guide for your next trip to the coast!
Our Capricho Travel Companion
For a Cabo family vacation, the Ava in Azure is a must! The Ava overnight bag is the perfect inflight carry-on that’s also light enough to use as an everyday travel bag as you explore Cabo. Its soft handles make it easy to carry from the plane to the resort and all the activities and adventures in-between.
“Our most favorite time to visit is the summer when the waves are big and the water is warm.”
Our Favorite Cabo Resorts
Laura’s Favorite Spot
LAS Ventanas al paraiso, a rosewoord Resort, Cabo
“My home away from home is Las Ventanas. Spring break is my time for some rest and relaxation and there is no better place than Las Ventanas. This Mediterranean-Mexican style resort is an oasis in the desert, complete with a wellness center and spa, and is perfect to unplug and unwind.”
Nicole’s Favorite Spot
Cabo Surf Hotel & Spa, Cabo
“I stay at the Cabo Surf Hotel with my family. My husband and son like morning sessions at La Roca and my daughter and I prefer Old Man’s when it’s not too crowded. There are lots of people in the water over spring break and a whole lot of lessons. Staying at Cabo Surf allows us to paddle out when the crowds are gone. Plus we love the French toast, tacos mixtos and view at 7 Seas restaurant.”
A Hidden Gem the East Cape, Cabo
The East Cape has been a local’s secret for a long time but like everything that is good, it’s starting to be discovered. More people are visiting, but it is still a very special place, hence it’s mention in our Cabo Travel Guide. There isn’t much here…yet. We usually go for the day or rent one of the few houses close to a surf break. On our last visit we stayed at The White Lodge, a new eco-luxury resort consisting of 10 rooms. While we can’t divulge all the secret surf breaks without the risk of being kicked out of the lineup, we can tell you to go see Alex and the boys at Costa Azul Surf Shop. They recently opened a new location at Santa Elena and Nine Palms where you can rent boards, grab something to eat and even rent out rooms.
Dining in Cabo San Lucas
A MUST—dining at flora farms
When in Cabo, a trip to Flora Farms is a must. We never miss Tuesday Fried Chicken night and really love lunch there. Also don’t forget to visit the bakery and get a few things to go. I recommend the chocolate eclairs and carrot cake cupcakes. Some of our other favorite dining spots include Tamarindos Farm-to-Table, Lumbre, Los Tres Gallos in San Jose for authentic Mexican and a little hole in the wall place called Barrio de Tango. If you’re looking to explore the area, we love to pack up our Marcella travel tote and head down a much improved highway for a day trip to the funky town of Todos Santos or the surf beach Cerritos.
EAST CAPE DINING—The White Lodge
Food, like everything, is limited on the East Cape but Zai Sushi is some of the best sushi you will ever eat. The restaurant at The White Lodge is also excellent. The menu is healthy Baja-Mediterranean cuisine with many of the ingredients locally sourced.
Cabo Activities Guide
Our Cabo travel guide wouldn’t be complete without including all of the activities you can enjoy on your Cabo family vaction other than surfing. If catching waves isn’t your thing, you can head over to Cabo Pulmo National Park, a UNESCO-protected coral reef. Cabo Pulmo is about 45 minutes up the road from Nine Palms. It is the only hard coral reef in the Gulf of California and is home to over 800 species of marine life, earning the nickname, ‘’The Aquarium of the World’’.
