This doesn’t mean we didn’t pay for our ticket, every airline is different and has […]

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico: 4 Day Itinerary

All across the U.S. we are getting a particularly rough Fall and Winter. It’s been bitter cold and the storms just keep coming!

I had never been to Cabo and I had never been to an all-inclusive so this was quite a treat for me! Our hotel was actually located in San Jose Del Cabo, about 20 minutes away […]
