Ed and I went to San Jose del Cabo for Memorial Weekend while his parents watched the kids. I hadn't been to Mexico in a while now so I was surprised at how clean the city was. There was hardly any trash along side the road and it smelled nice. We weren't surprised to find both San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas empty. There weren't any guests. But we did feel safe with all the federales with their M16s. I should have taken picture of that. On our way in we stopped at Mega, which the name appropriate describes the type of grocery store. It had everything. We purchased some snacks and lots of good beer. It was perfect.
We stayed at the Westin Los Cabos and upgraded ourselves to the mack daddy suite with a private hot tub on the balcony. The hotel said they were at 40% capacity, but it looked more like 20% if that. But it was all kind of nice to have the place to yourself. As you can imagine, you can stay pretty much anywhere and get a good rate. We mostly stayed in the pool the entire time. We went into town occassionally for dinner and jet skiing. We played minature golf at the resort to which I beat Ed big time! The only thing I don't like about Cabo is the course sand...ouch.
It was a nice getaway for us and we're definitely going to come back San Jose and bring the kids. The pools were awesome and perfect for Isabella when it's not overcrowded. We checked out Club Regina, the condos at the Westin, and they looked good for the family.
We stayed on the first floor, right in the middle of the bridge section. The view was insane.
