Life has been crazy as of late with lots of life changes i.e. moving to Silver Lake, deciding to go back to school (eek!). Which is why I’ve taken a hiatus from Blonde Banter, but I’m back y’all! I decided to make my come back with a post about my 24th birthday trip to Cabo which was an absolute dream.
For my birthday this year, all I wanted was to lay on the beach with a margarita in one hand, a chip with guac on it in the other, and the sun beaming down on my face. So I said fuck it, let’s go to Cabo! If you live in SoCal, Cabo is the perfect weekend getaway. We went for only two nights and it was 100% worth the trip, it’s practically like flying to San Francisco for the weekend.
We stumbled upon the website Roomer when looking for hotels, knowing I really wanted to stay at The Cape and found a crazy deal for a room there through Roomer on Kayak. I had never heard of Roomer before so we were a little skeptical at first, but after looking up reviews we decided to just give it a try! Everything ended up going perfectly, our room was GORGEOUS (as you can see above), and they even left us a bottle of tequila with a birthday card & cake upon arrival. The 3 days we were there were beyond perfect, but since we weren’t there long & I mostly just wanted to lay by the pool, we didn’t do too much. So I’ve included a guide with what we did do as well as things I want to do next time we’re back (and we will be back) below!
The Cape – Obviously my top choice, this hotel is an architectural/decor dream. 10/10 would recommend.
One & Only Palmilla – This is a very fancy nancy option, but I’ve heard it’s absolutely stunning. Also Forbes rated it the best hotel in Mexico two years ago, so that’s cool.
Las Ventanas – Also fancy & gorgeous.
The Ledge – This is the restaurant at The Cape where they serve breakfast, lunch, and dinner & holy wow I’ve never had such a good “hotel breakfast.” Get the chilaquiles & the french toast, you won’t regret it.
Flora’s Farm – We didn’t get the chance to go here but next time it’s first on my list!
Manta – The fancier restaurant at The Cape, which was delicious but The Ledge’s chilaquiles still win.
Los Tres Gallos – Recommended to us by the hotel, the mariachis playing American music was a little disconcerting but the food & drinks were dope.
El Farallon – If you want a super special, romantic dinner with insane views, go here.
