When we heard that we had one day in Cabo San Lucas, our friend Giselle’s parents booked a room at the Riu Resorts and flew down to meet her. Jennifer and Jack are a blast and we had spent the day with them earlier on the trip at the Blue Hole in Jamaica. They remind me of my family, they get involved in their kids lives and support them. Encouraging them to chase their dreams and enjoying watching them every step of the way. We were both thrilled when they emailed us and asked us to join them for a day at the all inclusive resort. A whole group of us rushed off the first tender to get an early start on the day. We took a 15 minute cab ride out of the city to the restort set on the beach. There was a picturesque pool that met the ocean skyline, tons of good food, a swim up bar and fun pool games. We all paid to get a day pass to the resort and hang around. We had quite a few laughs that day. They had drinks in hollowed out pineapples, fresh mint mojitos and a great breakfast buffet. It was a good thing we only stayed there for a day… I could have gained fifty pounds easily if I had been there any longer. It was about 85 degrees that day and the cement surrounding the pool was super hot. I laughed my butt off as I watched the girls running in their bare feet from one pool to the next holding hands and squeeling from their burning feet. But the pools were cool and refreshing once you jumped in.
Too many stories from one afternoon to tell, just check out the pineapple drinks and look for another post with details on the Cabo San Lucas adventures tomorrow.
