Romance and relaxation on the menu at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica
On the drive from the Los Cabos international airport, there were few clues that Hurricane Odile had swept through and devastated much of the region a few months ago.
We could see in the distance that several resorts along the Corridor hadn't yet opened. But the stubby palm trees were the biggest hurricane giveaway (trunks sprouted baby fronds instead of their usual long swaying leaves).
And at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, which suffered very little damage, you wouldn't know anything had been amiss. The five-star resort on the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas was in top tourist-ready condition when we visited recently in mid-December.
Part of the Pueblo Bonito group of deluxe Mexican resorts, the Pacifica is the only one in Cabo that is purely all-inclusive. Because meals (and drinks) are included in the rates, accommodations are thus in 154 rooms, as opposed to condo-style units with kitchens or kitchenettes, which is the case with the Pueblo Bonito's three other resorts in Cabo (we had previously checked them out on other visits - see our post on What's the Best Pueblo Bonito Resort in Cabo San Lucas?).
We're not usually fans of all-inclusives - at least those all-inclusives where cocktails are watered-down drinks and meals are conga lines of all-you-can-eat buffets. But the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica met our hotel standards (which, for Janice, are quite exacting, and sometimes trying for George).
For adults-only and with a large spa, the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica focuses on romance and relaxation.
So, yes, you can sip all the Italian bubbly or piñas coladas you want. But there's no loud pool music or after-dark nightclub.
