The Cancun Blogger Goes To… Los Cabos???

I haven’t been posting regularly for a very long time now, but your patience will be well rewarded!

As many of you know, I’m now working as a copywriter and blogger for Sandos resorts. One of the many perks of my new job is that they’re sending me on trips to all their Mexico resorts to get to know the hotels. In early May, they opened the new Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos, which is where I am right now! I’ve never been to Los Cabos before… my first time on the west coast of anything, and my first time seeing the Pacific Ocean.

Get ready for some pics!

I’ll start with pics of the resort itself. It’s one of the first all inclusives in Cabo San Lucas, and it has an amazing location on a hill between the ocean and the Cabo San Lucas marina. I’m in love with it. With its desert-style gardens and huge rocks, it’s a far cry from Cancun.

 

My first morning I got invited out on an ATV tour through the Baja California desert. It was one of the coolest things I’ve ever done! We played around on the desert then at the beach.

Not a real wink... maybe too much sun? haha


Saturday night… a sunset sailboat cruise to Land’s End Arch. I felt like a Kardashian.

Full moon rising at sunset

 

The resort’s sales director told me and my coworker Enrique that there was a beach formed under the arch. This only happens every few years, so we had to go the next morning to make sure we could see it before it disappeared for another 6 years or so. First we had a boat drop us off at the nearby Lovers’ Beach:

 

Then we crossed to the neighboring Divorce Beach. At the back of the beach was a thin strip of sand along a rock wall that led to the arch. The problem: The waves would crash against the rock, then fall back and expose the sand. We had to time it perfectly and sprint through the temporary mini-beach, but it was worth it because we got to be one of the lucky few who can say they stood under the Land’s End Arch:

 

I have 5 more days here, so there will be more photos to come! In the meanwhile, I’m posting a few pics a day on the Gringation Cancun Facebook page.

  • The pacific coast looks vastly different than the Caribbean coast. Beautiful photos. So which area do you prefer?

    • Los Cabos is very very cool. I’ve been dying to visit for 8 years, and the destination has gone above and beyond what I dreamed it would be! Still, I need the leafy palm trees and bright turquoise water of the Caribbean. I prefer Cancun/Riviera Maya. :)

    Looks great, but I prefer Cancun and the beautiful Caribbean!

  • What the what what?! What an amazing new job!! Thought I’d stop by and see how you were doing and I guess fantastic would be the word ;) To new adventures! I have internet again so I’ll be swinging by more often I hope.

    Beautiful, but in a very different way from Cancun (the Caribbean). Your office views are much cooler than mine as I sit in the Fan at Crossroads Coffee working on this week’s sermon. So, were you driving the ATV all by yourself? I’m impressed. It’s been a while I guess since you have been able to drive something.

  • That looks awesome. Soooo different from the Riviera Maya! I’d like to visit but I too need the lush jungle of the caribbean!

  • Pics look amazing. Also, what a fun experience… Your dream job is certainly working out :)

  • Beautiful pics, congratulations for your new job. May the LORD Bless you.

    Haaaave I mentioned how jealous I am yet? The resort looks amazing, I really want to go to Cabos! Thats also pretty incredible you got to stand under the Arch, what perfect timing! xx

  • Looks like you are having a blast and those are some great perks to have as well. Congrats on the new job. I look forward to hearing more about New Mexico and places there to visit and things to do.
