Fora’s Take

Cabo San Lucas is one of the most popular destinations in North America, and for good reason. The oceanside cliffs contrasting with the vast desert make the landscape of this beautiful city remarkable. From world-renowned golf courses and spa resorts to canyon zip lines and an unbeatable foodie scene, there is something for everyone in Cabo.

Day 1: Arrive in Cabo

Check into the beautiful Pueblo Bonito Montecristo Estates and arrive at your private villa complete with an infinity pool and an unending view of the Pacific Ocean.

Pro tip: Ask your concierge for grocery delivery service ahead of time so you don't have to stop on the way from the airport.

Get settled in, unload your groceries, pop open your first (of many) bottles of rosé and relax into vacation mode.

Get into the Cabo spirit by starting your evening at the wonderful Los Tres Gallos downtown. With colorful decor and delicious authentic food, it is the perfect first night spot to start off your week in paradise.

Day 2: Lounge by the pool

Start your first full day in Cabo embracing the Cabo lifestyle: a margarita in hand and lounging poolside overlooking the Pacific.

After a full day in the sun, it's time for a refresh and happy hour! Take a taxi to the Rooftop at the Cape for an unparalleled sunset and craft cocktails. After drinks, go next door to the Sunset Monalisa for a breathtaking dinner.

Get another post dinner drink at The Cape, or head back to your villa for a nighttime swim and a goodnight's sleep for another full day in the sun.

Day 3: Spa & Golf Day

One of the perks of staying at a Pueblo Bonito property is access to their incredible spa services and one of the world's greatest golf courses, the Quivira Golf Club.

After spa / golf, head back to the villa for a dip in the pool and get ready for a fun evening. Acre and Flora Farms are both in San José del Cabo, which is about an hour from Montecristo Estates. Both are tucked away in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna mountains and feel like their own little oases. Acre has a hip and sleek atmosphere with beautiful decor and craft cocktails.

After drinks, get another taxi and head to Flora Farms for an unbeatable experience. Flora Farms is a farm-to-table restaurant with vibrant colors and a family-friendly atmosphere.

Day 4: SUR Beach House

Head the SUR Beach House for lunch and an afternoon on the beach. SUR is a more upscale Medano Beach hangout (compared to Mango Deck, for example) and a must-do experience.

Enjoy the rest of your afternoon dancing, drinking and maybe even taking a boat ride to El Arco at sunset.

Day 5: Visit Todos Santos

For your last day, rent a car and head to Todos Santos for the day. It's a magical little town full of culture and charm. Along the way, be sure to stop at Art and Beer, a hole-in-the-wall bar in the middle of the desert.

Once you return to the villa, it's time for the best dinner you will have all week. Arbol at Las Ventanas al Paraiso is magical. From the private tables enclosed in the pool to the one-of-a-kind cocktails, live music, lighting from the trees and everything in between, Arbol is a must-do spot.
