Pueblo Bonito Rose Cabo San Lucas

Would you believe I finally got the very first stamp on my passport?

The Ninja brought me along on an all-expense paid trip to a resort in Mexico! He kicked some butt at work and earned a vacation that began on his birthday. We kicked off the last year of his 20s at the Pueblo Bonito Rose in Cabo San Lucas with a few dozen of his co-workers.

It was a four-day trip and Jordan’s company organized transportation, lodging, meals, and even provided an additional $125 per person room credit that we could use on spa treatments, room service, or whatever. The resort wasn’t brand new, but our experience was still very nice.

Most of our friends went on excursions (riding quads, parasailing) but the two of us mostly relaxed in and by various pools and worked on undoing some of our cycling tan lines. We enjoyed a preview of summer weather with temps in the 90s by day and mid 60s at night.

Had I written this right after I returned, my review of Mexico would be slightly more glowing. But I’m still getting over (for lack of a better term) intestinal trouble, bug bites, and a head cold, so I’m slightly less than thrilled with travel in general, especially to third world countries.

In fact, if you take a look at how we spent the room credit, it pretty much sums up what trips with the two of us are all about: we’re always hungry, so there are tons of charges for room service, and the rest went for snacks, hydration, bug sprays, lip balms, and sunscreen.

We may not be well-suited for travel, but we still had fun!

    Niiiiice! I’m from Mexico but I’ve never been there. SAD!
    Glad you had fun. Yeah, stomach bugs are pretty common.

    Oh no, a stomach bug. I have been having the same problem lately, which has been pretty horrible so feel better soon. But yay for Mexico overall, glad you had fun.

    BAH It sucks to be sick. It really does, and what a place to be sick at. DAMN THE TUMMY BUG GODS!! I hope you had a good time out of it all though. 🙂

    So pretty! And all the room service sounds exactly how Mike and I would spend our vacation too. What’s not to love about food?
