This past weekend, I went on a short bachelorette trip for one of my closest friends from college. It was definitely something I was looking forward to. Getting away from the chilly winter temperatures in Washington, D.C. was just the icing on the cake.
Right as we arrived in Cabo San Lucas (or "Cabo"), we checked in, changed into our sundresses and headed to Asi y Asado to get some delicious tacos. On our arrival we soon found out this small restaurant was on the infamous Guy Fieri program "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives," and we soon understood why! They have such a wide variety of tacos -- i.e. scallop tacos! And an awesome toppings bar, with everything from charred peppers, to coleslaw, to radishes and spicy salsas. We ordered grilled vegetables for the table and they were deliciously charred and sweet.

On our walk back to our hotel, we stopped and grabbed a pina smoothie from Smoothie Bar. I enjoyed several of these pineapple + grated coconut smoothies during the trip!
Friday night we went down to the Marina, and went to a fun restaurant where we were forced by the waiters to do karaoke. These are the sorts of things you get asked to do when you're in a bachelorette group, so we obliged and sang heartily to the Spice Girls - Tell Me What You Want (not our choice, but the waiters!). We downed a bit of liquid courage (see tequila picture below) before belting our our group song.
On Saturday we spent much of our time at Playa El Madano in Cabo San Lucas. That night we headed to The Office and enjoyed some delicious fish tacos on the sand. It was absolutely gorgeous, and a lot of fun!
On Sunday we woke up early to have breakfast at the beautiful Villa del Palmar Beach Resort. The dessert was delicious, with the most gorgeous fresh papaya and pineapple. My favorite Mexican breakfast dish, chilaquiles, and a yummy omelette station. After we filled up, we went on a morning whale watching tour. We expected not to really see anything, but within five minutes of pulling away from the dock we were riding beside whales. They were gorgeous and large and entertained us with their flips. It was amazing to see. Then we saw the infamous Arch of Cabon San Lucas. It was beautiful and one of the most gorgeous land masses I've been close to.
I must say the fruit, vegetables and delicious fresh seafood is one of the things I miss from this trip. Mexico truly is a paradise. It's beautiful! I can't wait to head back some time soon, but for now back to work and the snowy days of the east coast.
