About the Trip
The weather in Vancouver can be quite rainy. Hence I booked the trip to the Los Cabos Entry spontaneously. It was a stormy and cold day, and less than 24 hours I was in Los Cabos! Yes, very last minute.
The flight to Los Cabos was not too long, was about 4 hours. Since we wanted to explore the central town of San Lucas, we chose a non, all-inclusive resort, which was ME Cabo.
Where I stayed Location
ME Cabo is located on Medano Beach and is a walking distance. It’s a great location and gorgeous view. Along the beach, there are so many bars/restaurants that have great food and excellent customer care services with a great vibe.
I had a beautiful walk to the Marina and the central town in San Lucas. It was approximate 10-15 min walk to the central city, a few minute cab right (cost $8)
Here are some photos of the view from our hotel!
Not such a relaxing vibe, there is a live DJ, so music is on all day starting from 12 pm on weekdays, and 10 am weekends. Their beachfront view is unbeatable, but the pool is a bit smaller than most resorts. I didn’t mind the music since the landscape was phenomenal.
For the most part, the staff was pretty friendly. However, there could be some room for improvement. Given that it was not an all-inclusive resort, and was quite expensive the service was lacking. The day we arrived the staff was very kind, and we even had a complimentary champagne bottle. We also received a complimentary breakfast with our stay.
Nevertheless, something was off every day either we got the wrong order, or they forgot to bring something. For the days we sat on a daybed at the beach, we noticed it took very long for a server to come and assist. One of the days, I was out in the balcony barefoot and stepped in some glass, and my foot bled quite a bit, and luckily I was able to get the glass out.
After that, we noticed our housekeeper broke an ashtray and did not clean the debris properly. The housekeeping failed to bring another ashtray. Aside from that, we were on vacation and made the best of it!

Eats:Restaurants! Coast Restaurant,
This restaurant was less than a 2-minute walk from our hotel. It was my favorite eating joint on my trip! Overall the staff did an excellent job, provided excellent service, and exquisite food. The waiter brought out a plaque of the specials, and we decided what we wanted; from there, however, aside from that, we noticed we didn’t get a menu. We ordered fresh lobster and sea bass fish. We managed to eat the entire meal, and still had room for dessert that was made fresh in front of us! The restaurant had live music playing, which was the highlight of the night, they even came to our table and sang a song. This song was beautiful.

Gardein Tacos was our first authentic taco stop. The tacos were great; we ordered lobster grilled tacos. It was a cute small location.
Amazing! Lorenzillos restaurant has been around for so long. They had a spectacular service, and the food was delicious. You must try the dessert!

Nightlife El Squid Ro
On our second night, we decided to check out El Squid Ro. Their music was awesome. The place is so large with three storied building than the others. It’s great for food and some dancing.
Activities: Sailboat Sunset Cruise.
This cruise was great; we went at 6 pm so that we could watch the sunset when it was not so hot. We also got to see the lovers arc which was a famous historical rock to view. This place was fabulous.
Side by Side Racing and Horseback riding tour.
This tour was great. We did 1 hour for each person, both were beginner tours, but we had loads of fun.
On arrival, we noted that camera/phones are not allowed. The sole reason is for you to pay for the pictures they take. Aside from that, having photos with a horse on the beach was surely worth it.
Travel Entry – New York
On my first time visit in New York, there is something always on my bucket list. It was on winter, and it was cold actually but magical. It was very nice to see this beautiful city with all the pretty lights, and everyone in Christmas spirit. It was amazing, to watch a lot of people in one place. No matter how many cute outfits I brought along, I still had to wear two additional coats.
Where I stayed: The Hilton Time Square.The Hilton Time Square is a lovely hotel in an excellent location with a large bar on the main floor. The staff was friendly.
Activities: Holiday Market at the Oculus
Do you know what is Oculus is?
It defines the most integrated network of underground pedestrian connections in New York City. It serves as the centerpiece of the World Trade Center Transportation Hub, including 78,000 square feet of multi-level state-of-the-art retail and dining.
An excellent place for taking pictures, shopping and munching on some great food. The right place to keep warm and still see something fresh.
9/11 Ground Zero
9/11 Ground Zero was eye-opening having all lived through this tragic event, and getting to see where the building was and having a moment of silence for those who lost their lives. On the fountain. All the names of the victims are engraved; it’s a beautiful tribute both visually and by touching.
Grand Central Station.
At Grand Central Station, they are so many different people all in a small vicinity than other places. Watching people has always been intriguing to me. I find it interesting how hundreds of people can pass by, all in their worlds and going on about their day.
Fifth Ave was a beautiful place. The walk to the fifth Ave from our hotel was a short distance. Seeing all of the lights, all the Christmas decor, it feels so magical, that you almost forget the cold. The light show at Saks was also beautiful.
Walking across the Brooklyn bridge was beautiful, especially when the sun is setting since you can see all the buildings still lit.
By visiting the central park, skating is a must. It’s a beautiful walk, and there is a small zoo which gives you something to do as well.
Empire State Building
The view from the top is inspiring. So lovely to be so high up and look at all the beautiful significant buildings
