Girls Trip to Cabo San Lucas

A few weeks ago my girlfriends from Chicago & I did the unthinkable. We actually managed to plan a long weekend in Cabo together.  We all have hectic schedules with work (well not me currently) & babies (again, not me) but since we started planning this trip almost a year ago, we were able to make it work. Though we've been back for a few weeks, the trip was one of the highlights of my hiatus & I wanted to share it with you!

We stayed at The Riu Palace, an all inclusive resort.  The grounds were STUNNING.  This was the view from our room.

There were multiple pools, including a swim up bar.

Because we chose to go to Mexico in May, it was HOT so we spent most of our time in the pools. How rough for us.

When we weren't in the pool, this guy kept us cool.

The hotel had a few bars & with it being an all inclusive, we took advantage. A lot.

We also decided to venture out & do some activities. Up first was a sunset booze cruise. 

Our vessel for the evening:

Unfortunately for me, my stomach was really not a fan & I spent most of the cruise with my eyes shut. But whatever,  I still had fun!

The next day we decided to conquer our fears & went parasailing. That is me up there.

We we are quite thrilled to have survived.

That afternoon, Laura & I decided to explore a bit in town.

We found some great souvenirs & both haggled at the flea market!

Overall, I had such a blast with my girls. I don't get to see these ladies often, so it was nice to have 4 quality days with them. Before we left, we wanted a beach picture of course.

And then my friends got the idea to stick their feet in the ocean. Since I can do that whenever I wanted, I stayed back along with Jess.  Well, then the ocean went & ate my friends. Poor girls went home with soaked clothes.

Now, a disclaimer. While we had an absolute BLAST, we were a little disappointed with the resort. The food, though plentiful, was just OK & the beds/sheets weren't comfortable, but we also paid approx. $400 (a piece) total for 3 nights.  So for a girls getaway it was awesome. Is it a place I would go with my significant other? Probably not.

The trip was such a success, on our last night we already began planning on next getaway next summer. I can't wait!


  1. I'm headed to Cabo in March so I'm glad I stumbled upon this post. Thanks for sharing. Glad you guys were able to all get together and enjoy one another's presence!
