Cabo San Lucas getaway

An October 2002 trip to Cabo San Lucas by Travel Addict

Quote: My husband and I went to Cabo to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. We traded our timeshare for one at the Pueblo Bonito Blanco, which is a beautiful oceanfront resort.

Cabo San Lucas getaway

Overview

Quote:
When I think of Cabo, my first thought is of the topography of that part of Mexico. When we got off the plane, I was stunned to see beautiful rugged terrain. The timeshare was wonderful, with one disappointment. It is advertised as having a lovely, safe beach for swimming. And it did, until Hurricane Juliet washed it away three weeks before our trip. So, we did not do any swimming or laying on the beach. This turned out fine since the minute you step on the beach you are bombarded by vendors selling everything from jewelry to marijuana. The pool was wonderful,great happy hour and service. Every time I approached a door, someone was always there to open it for me. Othe...Read More

This is one of the nicest RCI resorts we have been too. The Pueblo Bonito Blanco is very clean. Someone was constanly sweeping or cleaning glass fixtures. Check in and out very smooth. Pool was wonderful, and had towel service. Also, waiters were plentiful for poolside beverages. There are two restaurants, food was good at both. There is a welcome happy hour that advertises the theme nights, and was worth attending. We attended two theme nights and the food and entertainment were excellent. We had a one-bedroom unit with two double beds. Too small to share with another couple, but ok for a family. The couch also converted to a bed. All appliances were well maintained, and there is da...Read More

Best Things Nearby:El Archo, "The Office" beachside restaurant, Cabo Wabo Cantina, shopping.Best Things About the Resort:Friendly, courteous service. Very clean. Good food at the restaurants. Resort Experience:Pueblo Bonito is a very nice resort. It is oceanfront and has everything you need- restaurants, pool, gym, spa, tennis, scheduled activities, and best of all- perfect weather. It rarely rains there, so you are virtually assured nice weather. This resort is maybe 10 years old, and there is a new Pueblo Bonito Rose right next door. Either resort would be a good choice.

This authentic Mexican restaurant has an open air cantina feeling and atmosphere. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. The waiters were more than willing to make suggestions and give explanations. During our dinner, there was live mariachi music.

You gotta love The Office! When you order one drink, you automatically get two- and they are huge! Tables are on the beach, in the sand, steps from the water. Definately a good spot for happy hour and a snack, or breakfast. We didn't try dinner foods. The downside is that there are peddlers trying to sell you junk. Restaurant employees do their best to keep them away.

Playa Medano

Attraction | "Playa el Medano"

Quote:
Most of the beach was washed away after Hurrican Juliette in October 2001. We were really disappointed. Also, the peddlers are extremely annoying and plentiful. We were offered drugs twice, but I never felt like I was in any danger. On the plus side, there are plenty of water taxi's to Playa Del Amore and El Arco, and there are plenty of jet ski places. I would recommend paying cash- our credit card number was stolen and used to buy computer equiment which was waiting on our doorstep when we got home.
