Travel Blogs from Cabo San Lucas
As we touched down in Cabo San Lucas, we exited the plane onto the tarmac. Man was it hot, but it felt good. I always freeze my butt off in those damn planes. Waiting in line to get through customs, I thought about all the things I read about getting through the jungle of pushy sales people hawking transportation, timeshares and what …
... mushrooms, and potato skins. Janene had tortilla soup which was as good looking to eat as it was tasty.
Back to our room the girls are bathed in their outdoor spa and into bed. We need to clear the fridge of any leftover alcohol so the kids teach us drinking games. 1 2 3 4 you need to be coordinated to play this one. Then we do fingers on the cup, not sure if it has a name but it is pretty funny. Rock ...
I began my journey from home, were I was able to spend time with my family and quite luckily I spent some days with my grandmother Ruth. Sadly, she passed away in the early morning of the 5th of June. It is sad that she is no longer with us, but I'm grateful for the time I got to spend with her. Seeing her happy and content at the end of her life was an incredible thing, and I must say that the whole experience of her passing was a beautiful thing, I can ...
... where we met THE Pepe! It was fun to see the city and get off "the compound."
Today, the whole gang decided to go the opposite direction into San Jose del Cabo. A much less touristy town than San Lucas, and truly charming. We walked about, and hit a great taco place that was recommended to us ...
... and towels ready, and was ready to go before we ever stopped the boat near Cabo. It didn’t feel extremely hot in Cabo this morning and the boat literally stopped in front of the famous arch at Land’s End so we could take fabulous pictures from our balcony!
Cabo is a tender port i.e. you have to take small boats (called tenders) to get to the port. I got the underwater camera ready and we were on the first boat to hit the shore and see a bit of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa Cabo San Lucas
This is a really beautiful hotel, with many impressive features. Based on the reviews on this site, which had boosted the hotel to #2 in Cabo, we were VERY excited about staying there. The idea of a holistic spa, with delicious organic food and inspiring surroundings, sounded like just what we needed. However, the hotel is being mismarketed, and we left after one night for the PB Sunset Beach, where we had a much better time. We wouldn't say "don't stay there," since many people below obviously had wonderful times (though I wonder how many of them were relatives of Pueblo Bonito timeshare owners who were on the 7 nights for $299 special, which would certainly have made it a better deal). But we wanted to offer extra information beyond what's already posted, so people can make up their own minds.
Recently returned from a 5 night stay and definitely needed a few more days!
I am doing this evaluation from our room at Pacifica.
This was the most relaxing vacation I have ever experienced. The scenery and view from every angle of this hotel was beautiful! The service by each and every member of the hotel's staff was by far beyond outstanding. From their friendliness to efficiency to their sense of humor, the hotel is staffed by quality personnel. We were treated as if we were the only guests on the property.
OMG What An Absolutely Breathtaking Resort
While my husband and I didn't stay at this resort, we did visit it two times. We stayed at the PB Sunset Beach (sister property a few minutes away). All I can say is WOW. This place is the most peaceful resort I've ever encountered. The staff was absolutely fabulous showing us around. We asked to see a couple of rooms and were shown the basic unit as well as a suite. If we go back to Cabo, we will stay here. No doubt!
We just got back from a 6 day trip to Cabo (week of July 17th) and stayed at the Pacifica. It was amazing! As many people have said, there were not that many people at the resort...it was almost as if we had the place to ourselves. The staff was very friendly and helpful with anything you needed.
I stayed at the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica July 5-8, 2005 and had a truly relaxing, wonderful experience. I found a surprisingly affordable package deal through Expedia (I believe the hotel is currently offering special introductory rates) and was lured in by the resort's promise of a contemporary "holistic oasis". The Pacifica is a brand-new resort (barely opened this past April) and is part of the famous Pueblo Bonito resort chain in Mexico. Here are some of my thoughts about the resort:
The new Pacifica is a wonderful new retreat!. The archetecture emphasizes views and the natural desert. The people work very hard to serve your needs. They are very glad to see you and its obvious.
We just returned from a week stay at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Holistic Retreat and Spa. Words can't begin to describe the utter beauty and peace this hotel offers. The setting is beachfront where you can hear the waves crashing into the shore. The sound of water is heard throughout the hotel with multiple water features(fountains,pools,waterfalls).The grounds are beautiful with cactus gardens and palm trees.Our deluxe room was beautifully but simply furnished with state of the art bathrooms,very comfortable beds and a wonderful terrace to sit on with views of the ocean and pool.The staff really try hard to make sure everything is perfect. The spa treatments were wonderful and the staff especially NORMA was the best.Any small issues were quickly resolved. Victor and Karina were very helpful and welcoming(concierge).What we especially loved was the weather on the Pacific side is cooler than in downtown and there was a constant breeze off the water which was totally refreshing. The beach itself is beautiful but NO SWIMMING allowed due to strong currents and riptides. The 2 restaurants had very fresh and tasty food. Room service is also an option.Since we were so lucky to experience this hotel with only 6 rooms occupied during our stay we know this was a once in a lifetime gift.I know our next visit will be different but just as GREAT!!!!
An incredible hotel to unwind in. I visited Pueblo Bonito holistic hotel & spa in May 2005 barely 2 weeks opened. The minute you arrive you begin to see why it was named holistic. Every detail is simple and very pleasing to the eye. The architecture is clean and colors muted with splashes of bright accents that draw your eye to details. The lobby has a gorgeous pic-a-boo view of the grounds and of what's to come. There are cactus plantings everywhere in perfect rows surrounded by golden sand. The grounds are gorgeus and so perfect in design. There are many paths and areas to wander in. I was just a visitor to the hotel and asked to see a room. They were kind enough to take me in the regular room as well as the suite room. The rooms are beautifully detailed and comfortable, and all come with an ocean view balcony. I dined at their only restaurant and it was a delicious meal, pricy but worth it! The pool area is great. This is definitely a place to relax and take in the beauty of the grounds. I was told this was a no-children allowed hotel. I am definitely staying here in the future. Please take a look at the photos of my visit I've posted on this site - Just beautiful!
