Luxury Cabo Hotels: How to Make the Most of your Stay
A vacation at a Cabo hotel invokes images of pure relaxation - an escape from the everyday. Having a great time on your vacation may sound like a no-brainer - it's Cabo afterall, but there are few little things you can do to make the most of your stay at our Cabo hotels.
Simply put, the less you have, the less you'll have to drag around. Having to deal with heavy luggage in the airport, and when trying to check in to your hotel is an easily avoidable inconvenience. Not to mention you don't want to have to pay extra for heavy bags. Packing light also gives you space for items you purchase while in Cabo. For more tips on how to pack light, see our previous article on packing tips for a Cabo vacation.
Plan Your Activities Beforehand
One of the biggest culprits of vacation mayhem is poor planning. By deciding on your activities beforehand you can avoid the tell-tale question "what do you want to do today?" You don't have to map out every single last detail, but having a list of things you absolutely want to do in Cabo can be a great help. Knowing what kind of activities you'll be doing will also help with packing light for your vacation.
At Pueblo Bonito Cabo hotels, you can even contact the concierge early and schedule times for activities such as golf, horseback riding, whale-watching cruises, eco tours and ATV adventures. Simply call your resort (phone numbers for each resort can be found on their respective websites) and they will be happy to set you up with a time. If you don't want to call ahead, you can inquire about the activities we offer when you arrive.
If possible, arrange your flight for earlier in the day. This way you'll be able to maximize your stay and kick-start your vacation as soon as you arrive. Have a lazy lunch at a beachside restaurant, preview the El Medano beach scene, plan out or schedule a few activities with the concierge, explore the hotel (so you know where you're going during the vacation), or just take time settling into your room. If you're ready to jump into your vacation, you can even go out for a night on the town!
Arriving early will allow you to avoid a tired and stressful beginning to your trip and you'll be ready and refreshed when you wake up the next morning, instead of disorganized and disheveled. Okay, it's probably not that extreme, but having extra time in Mexico is always a huge plus. On a similar note, shoot for departure dates that are in the afternoon or early evening so you can have a relaxing breakfast on the day you leave and you won't have to rush to get to the airport.
Do the "Must-Do's"
If you're in Cabo, you have to visit all the places that Cabo is known for! Make sure to take a trip to El Arco, go snorkeling at Chileno Beach, visit the Puerto Paraiso mall, and definitely try traditional Mexican food. By combining cultural and luxury activities, you'll have a well rounded vacation that won't ever get boring.
Get a Massage
This isn't so much a tip as an indulgence. Pueblo Bonito's Cabo hotels have luxury spa services that are must for the ultimate Cabo vacation. Enjoy a hot stone massage, our revitalizing water therapy, or get refreshed with a complete body day package. For more information on our signature spa treatments, visit PuebloBonito.com.

Being attune to these details can really enhance your vacation experience. If you plan ahead and take advantage of all that the area has to offer, you will have a truly memorable vacation.
