Cabo San Lucas: Día Cinco

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010


Relax. Eat. Swim. This is life in Cabo, and it is good!

Today Mom and I relaxed at Pueblo Bonito Rosé’s spa. Hour long sports massages are a great way to unwind. Following our spa treatments, we ate lunch on the beach and soaked up some sun. The public beach is always packed so it’s easy to meet people. I met this fine fellow and picked up some new dance moves.

Our trip is officially half over, and despite a nasty sunburn, I can’t complain. It’s Cabo. Life here isn’t just good, it’s great!

I spotted this vendor on the beach and instantly knew he would be my POTD. From China to Cabo, people of all ages, races and genders love Washington State University. ¡Vamos Cougs!

Pink Kitty Nightclub

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

After dinner Mom and I walked around the marina when we stumbled across Pink Kitty, a new bar and nightclub in Cabo San Lucas.

Every night is ladies night at Pink Kitty, and ladies drink free from 9 to 11. Wednesday night is ladies night from 9 to close.

Despite the bouncers thinking we’re from LA, Mom and I felt slightly under dressed. Girls in mini dresses and heels broke it down on the dance floor.

We finished our drinks and took a cab home by 10. This trip is a little more relaxed than previous trips, but we’re not complaining. Something tells me we’ll go out Cabo style before flying home Saturday morning…

Alexander Restaurant

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Tonight Mom and I ate dinner on the marina at a restaurant called Alexander Restaurant. Our meal was so good I had to blog about it.

We started our meal with a delicious tortilla soup. The broth was a rich and flavorful but didn’t leave you feeling stuffed. Chunks of avocado and crispy tortilla strips set this soup apart from others. Mom described Alexander’s tortilla soup as “the best tortilla soup I’ve ever eaten in my life.”

For our main course we split the coconut shrimp. This dish easily filled us up. For only 15 dollars we got five jumbo coconut shrimp, rice and veggies. Certainly a great bang for your buck.

If you want to eat at Alexander Restaurant, check out the famous Cabo San Lucas marina. You can’t miss it. It’s right on the restaurant strip at Blvd. Marina s/7 Centro Interior Plaza Bonita 23450. If you still can’t find Alexander’s call 624.143.2022. Good scenery and great food make for an epic night!

Cabo San Lucas: Día Cuatro

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

Mom and I spent another day swimming, tanning and sipping on cocktails. What else do you expect us to do? This is Mexico!

We started our morning with workouts, mom went to the gym and I did yoga. After working up a sweat and feeling fit, we went to the pool for almost five hours. This evening we went to a guest dinner party for free chips and dip. Unfortunately arrived late, so almost everything was picked over. Undeterred, we headed to town for dinner, drinks, shopping and local nightlife.

During the dinner party we noticed manta rays jumping out of the water (see picture five). I could’ve believe how many we saw jump. I did some research on manta rays and why they jump out of the water. According to ReefQuest, manta rays jump to communicate, court a mate or rid themselves of parasites.

Our time in Mexico is going by entirely too fast. Tomorrow marks the halfway point of our vacation. Noooo! On another note, I got a nasty sunburn/heat rash today. Apparently my tan accelerator worked a little too well. Not hot and the ultimate suntan FAIL.

*While shopping tonight, the girl who rang up my purchase guessed my age. She thought I was 15 or 16! Do I seriously look like a minor? Are the (few) guys who date me pedophiles? What the – !?
