Cabo San Lucas Mexico


This trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico is super special to me because I got to do some bucket list items, too!

I opted to stay at Rui Cabo San Lucas. It is a beautiful resort with a lot of amenities!

Like many Mexico all-inclusive resorts, it’s located right on the beach!

That means a lot of fun and photo opportunities!

Mexico also has some amazing sunsets!

I love getting (cheesy) and creative with the beach shots. I have no shame.

I have to admit, the beaches in Cabo are a lot rockier than I would prefer. At one point, we actually got sucked in by the current and we both almost drown.

How’s that for a vacation story?

If you’ve ever been to any part of Mexico, you know that the locals are always soliciting everywhere. You get used to it. You’re always welcome to buy something or choose to ignore it as we did.

I love Mexico nights. The weather is perfect and it’s breathtakingly beautiful!

I think I’m destined to die by touching a rabid, stray animal. I found this doggie while we were walking on the beach at night.

So, naturally, I touched it.

If I could be in a bikini every day of my life, I’d be the happiest girl on the planet.
 I love snorkeling. It’s a pretty standard thing we do every time we travel to the ocean. This one did not disappoint!

My favorite part of this trip was checking something off my bucket list!


It was such a fun experience! We did it through Dolphin Encounter and it was such a blast!

They are such beautiful animals!

I got to kiss them, go for a ride on them, and watch them swim and play. It was amazing!

No matter what you decide to do in Cabo, you really can’t go wrong! Mexico vacations are budget-friendly, and it’s a beautiful place to adventure to!

Have you been to Cabo? What was your favorite part? Tell me in the comments!

  1. You are great at capturing photos and moments. My husband and I are terrible at this, so we have next to no pictures from our travels. Ugh! Channeling your photo taking energy from now on!

    1. I’ve always been that way, but my husband probably doesn’t love it as much! Haha! Thanks for reading!!

  6. One of my friends just got back from her honeymoon to Mexico and it looked so beautiful! I’d love to go someday but it’s a long flight from the UK.

    1. It’s amazing! I know how you feel! I want to go to Maldives so bad, but it’s sooo far away!!

  7. We absolutely LOVE Cabo – My first time going was for our honeymoon and we both fell in love with the Melia Real. If you go back, try their ATV excursions. It’s not something you would normally think of when you think of heading to an all inclusive vacation, but it was SO much fun!

    1. That sounds like a blast! We did that in Rivera Maya at Xplor adventure park!
