Quick Cabo Getaway At The Cape Thompson Hotel


The Cape- a Thompson Hotel is a beautiful, beachfront, luxury boutique hotel with panoramic views. I stayed in a spacious one bedroom villa. The staff was extremely attentive creating an unforgettable guest experience.

The Cape has much to offer: spa, infinity pool, swim up bar, salt water pool, hot tub, restaurants, cafe, and a secluded beach.

The only rooftop lounge in Cabo San Lucas, located on The Cape’s sixth floor.

On the second day, I took a private sailboat that took me on a three-hour tour. It included an open-bar with snacks and lunch, and snorkeling. We sailed past the famous arch located in the southern most point of Baja, where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean.

The arch is made out of sandstone that will one day become granite. You used to be able to stand underneath it, known as Lovers Beach, but due to a hurricane that hit in September 2014, Lovers Beach became separated and today it’s known as Lovers Beach on one side and Divorce Beach on the other.

We also sailed past a sea lion colony. I captured a shot of this little guy chilling by himself and loving it.

Up for a little adventure? I took a two-hour drive through the desert and beach sand, appreciating the scenery and feeling like Princess Peach on a course of Mario Kart.

Nightlife recommendations: Mandala, El Squid Roe, La Vaquita (they’re all located next to each other), and Mango Deck during the day.

Cabo is an easy two-hour direct flight from Los Angeles, and it was the perfect quick getaway. Staying at The Cape definitely made my mini vacation amazing. I’ve received some questions in regards to the safety of Mexico; I can’t speak for all areas, but I did go out into the town one night, and I did not feel unsafe at any point. I spent most of my time relaxing and enjoying the hotel’s amenities. I still suggest to be aware of your surroundings, take precautions, and don’t go anywhere alone.
