Winter Escape 2014: Cabo San Lucas

Our weekend in Maine looked like this:

We woke up Saturday morning to more snow on the ground in one night than we've ever seen before. Enough snow to completely cover our back steps in one night...

Sounds like the perfect time to reminisce about our Winter Escape to Cabo San Lucas!

We stayed at the Sirena Del Mar by Welk and we loved it.
Despite how pleased we were, I'm actually not going to link up to it for a couple of reasons:
What we loved most was how tiny the property was. Because of the size, the service was amazing. Our room was literally the closest to the water that I've ever seen personally. And that infinity pool? Heavenly, with a view of the Arch.

So, what's not to love? Well, the Welk is growing. They are currently building a new building that will actually double the size of the property. I would think twice myself before booking a return trip... I would be concerned that the property would feel crowded, the staff would be stretched thin and the one tiny restaurant wouldn't be able to take the strain.

As a side note, there were very, very few children at this property. While we were there we saw one baby and one pre-schooler. The property really isn't set up for children and with the new building, it may become more family friendly. For our winter escape purposes, the quiet, kid free environment was ideal.

We had such an amazing trip. We lounged around in the sun, went on spontaneous adventures, cruised around town in "white lightening", golfed at The One and Only Palmilla, went whale watching, read endless books, went to bed early, slept late, ate amazing breakfasts on our balcony and left work and stress behind.

February Winter Escapes are a mandatory tradition from here on out!

  1. Were you able to swim off the beach at this hotel? I know most of cabo beaches are off limits to swimming, but it looks like you can here. Beautiful photos :)

    1. I should have mentioned that! Yes, you can swim off the beach and the snorkeling was amazing! It's very rare in Cabo to be able to swim off the beach but as long as the tide is in, you can at the Welk. The beach is shared with a handful of private estates but there were never more than 10 people on the beach at time while we were there.

    2. Awesome!! Thanks so much! I'll be looking to book a trip :)

  2. Wow, looks like an amazing trip! Your photos are gorgeous :) Also, your house/street in Maine are so cute and charming (even in the snow) - I love it! xoxo

  3. I would trade the snow for some sand, right about now... Looks like y'all had a great time!

  4. I found your blog a while ago but I'm a silent reader ;) but couldn't resist now! That is my favorite type of resort and I'm always trying to find ones like that. Too bad I can't hop on down there before it gets big. My husband and I honeymooned at Bolongo Bay in St. Thomas a few years ago... it was just the same, intimate and awesome, we LOVED it. You should check it out for your future escapes :)

  5. Gorgeous gorgeous place!! Super jealous!!!
