One of the perks of staying at a resort is that there are often sister properties located nearby. In our case, Pueblo Bonito has 4 resorts in Cabo San Lucas, and 2 of those happen to be located on the beautiful Medano Beach near downtown Cabo. Since Sunset Beach did not check off our “beach day” box, we decided to spend the day at one of the sister properties. We grabbed a taxi from Sunset Beach and for less than $10, all eight of us were transported to Pueblo Bonito Roses where we were spoiled with beach service (all-inclusive of course), beautiful views, shopping and people watching.
Medano Beach is active to say the least. There were three rows of lounge chairs located just below one of the poolside restaurants. In front of the first row (where we had secured 8 chairs), there is a rope that prevents the numerous vendors from encroaching in your space. For me personally, I love the idea of vendors parading their wares to me as I recline in the sand sipping on a cold cerveza. I mean, seriously, these guys have the same trinkets and souvenirs that the shops are selling, but they are coming to me. It is a win-win. Others disagree, and that is the purpose of the divider rope.
Now, as for the water – it was divine! Turquoise blue with the slightest current and easily swimmable. I could have stayed in the water all day! Due to the boat traffic taking people out to Pelican Rock and Lovers Beach or Divorce Beach, the swim area, though ample, is roped off.
We wandered down the beach for lunch The Office on the Beach, one of the “hot spots” in Cabo. Afterward, we hopped in one of the boats for a ride out to Pelican Rock where Greg jumped off the cliff! I opted to stay in the boat and take pictures. It was then that we realized these boats could be hired to take you out to the magnificent Lovers Beach and the adjoining Divorce Beach for the day. Next time….next time. Because, I assure you, there will be a next time at Medano Beach.
