After family visits and cultural sight seeing, it was time to be sloth and do nothing in Los Cabos.
From the airplane the dryness of this desert cape was clear. Our resort was in a less developed area in the Pacific side of the peninsula. It was nice to be in a less developed valley that spilled into the sea with a wide beach.
The only drawback was no swimming allowed given the riptide. We were advised not to even wade in the sea, which I thought as excessively cautious. But once at the beach we had to agree - it was a strange beach like none we had seen. A steep angle of ascent led to the ocean, which appeared dark and immediately deep. Large waves would approach and crash, but not get very far given the steepness of the beach and the riptide. Needless to say we followed the advice.
The resort was very nicely landscaped with various desert ornamentation and flora.
Overseeing us was a new time share development creeping up the side of the hill. We were offered a 200 USD coupon to check it out so we obliged. Outraguously expensive timeshares, albeit beautiful, awaired the impulse buyer. Our American sales person made no sense and kept changing the reasons why we should buy. He calculated a return on investment of 6% and looked at us in amazement, asking where in the world we could do better. I replied perhaps a number of mutual funds. I do not think he knew what a mutual fund was. But we got breakfast and 200 bucks of rebate. Not bad.
On a couple of occasions I explored the large and wide deserted beach and rock formations. One night we headed to Cabos for food and a little exploration. Otherwise we hung out in the windy luxurious resort. At one point sun shades decided to fight gravity and fly around the swimming pool. Of note were also the excellent waffles for breakfast!
The last day we headed to Frida, the rstaurant in the resort with the time shares. The food was excellent, service very nice. We met the chef who was genuinely flattered by our complements. He got us free dessert of his chosing - which happened to be the same items we would have chosen anyhow.
Cabos was nice, worthwhile, good resort. But being far from NY will probably be a while before we are back.
