A few weeks ago my husband and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary in Cabo San Lucas. We knew we wanted to go to a beach and it needed to be super easy to get to. A neighbor suggested the Dreams Resort, an all-inclusive destination, and we were sold. The flight was just 2 hours from Orange County, CA and which is the perfect amount of time for a flight for my opinion.
It has been YEARS since I have been to Mexico. Growing up we took a vacation to Baja every summer and the last time I had been to Cabo was in elementary school. Stepping off the plane, in what appeared to be the middle of the desert, I couldn’t help but grab my camera and start taking pictures. Note to self: never do that again. Someone rushed at me immediately to tell me to stop. He was kind of mean. And I instantly started sweating thinking about ending up in Mexican jail. I imagined I wouldn’t find too many margaritas in there. And then there was a baby mouse running around part of the airport. And remind me to do a separate post about how to exit the airport without being harassed by people trying to sell you tours…
This picture does not do the lobby and entryway justice. When you first pull up to the front of the hotel, you see the gorgeous blue water through these enormous arches. This picture above was taken on our way out to go home and it had been dreary and rainy all morning, hence the green astro turf stripe. It made me want to go put a swimsuit on and jump in the ocean.
This was our view. It was AWESOME! The weather was pretty near perfect. Almost every day was warm without being too humid. Except for the day before we went home. I thought I was going to die. It was SO humid and I was SO sweaty and it made me cranky. So we swam up to the bar and that made it better. I didn’t get a good picture of the pool but you can sort of see it through those palm trees above. The pool was HUGE. It had built-in tables and benches, and infinity edge that overlooked the ocean and a nice little swim up bar.
