If I could figure out a way to live part time in Cabo and part time in LA, I’d be the happiest camper ever!
There’s really nothing a quick trip to Mexico can’t fix! Cabo has been our go-to for the last few years because it’s 1: so easy to get to 2: gorgeous and 3: loaded with incredible food. I’m dying to explore other parts of Mexico, like Mexico City, Tulum and beyond… but for today let’s talk Cabo! It’s the perfect romantic vacation, it’s a great place to bring the kids and it’s perfect for a group trip or bachelorette party. No matter what the occasion, you’ll be happy. Here’s my list of favorite things to eat and favorite places to stay!
One & Only Palmilla – my favorite place to stay. Everything about the Palmilla is magical including the rooms, the breakfast scene, the swim up bars and the location. It’s perfect (but pricey!)
The Resort at Pedregal – my second favorite place to stay. The food here is EVERYTHING. In fact, I can tell you that on our first trip here I gained 8 pounds in 7 days and that is legit not an exaggeration. The food is beyond any hotel food I’ve ever had.
Flora Farms – my favorite place to eat!! Flora Farms is the original farm to table restaurant in Cabo and it’s pretty damn gorgeous. You shouldn’t miss it – and you should absolutely make reservations ahead of time. Get there an hour or two early and hang at the bar, shop the boutiques on the property and take a tour through the gardens. And be sure to order whatever pork special is on the menu. GAME CHANGER
Manta at The Cape – it’s chic, dark, posh and everything you’d expect from a Thompson property restaurant! Manta is equal parts Mexican and Japanese Izakaya and it’s the perfect place for a fun night out with friends.
El Farallon – this super gorgeous and romantic restaurant is nestled into the cliff at Pedregal and the seafood is out of this world. And whatever you do – make sure you go before sunset so you can dine and watch the sun set and then star gaze during dessert!
Edith’s – it’s an institution and it’s not to be missed. Table side guacamole making and margaritas the size of your head. What more could you want?
Huerta Los Tamarindos – another epic farm to table moment happening in Cabo that is not to be missed! Everything is seasonal and gorgeous and I want to rent out the entire property and have my birthday party there!
Acre – rounding out my guide with another farm to table restaurant because hi, have you met me? I’m obsessed. Acre is fantastic for any meal but my favorite is brunch because CHILAQUILES!!!
