The Healing Power of Travel - Los Cabos

A few weeks ago Ryan and I went to Los Cabo, Mexico for the sole purpose to chill out.  We’re 6 months into the year and its time to check-in, reflect and soak up the flavors and tequila of Mexico. lol   

 Vacay mode!

If you know me you know that I like to stay busy, hence how I got the nickname busy “bee.”  However over the years I’ve learned that downtime and days off are essential for optimal performance not only for athletes but also for business.

While it’s great to know how to hustle and be able to put in the grind, it's equally important to learn how to step away and chill.

Traveling gets me out of my daily routines and allows me to see things from a different perspective.   I regain clarity and it helps keep that work-life balance.  

If I inspired you to want to book a vacation!   YEAH.  AMAZING!  If you want to go to Los Cabos here are my recommendations.  If you're looking to get Cabo Wabo this post may not be for you but feel free to message me, and I can steer you in the right direction! : )

Where to stay: 

JW Los Cabos - If you’re looking to relax in luxury this place is for you.  If you have little ones not to worry the resort is family friendly and has adult only and kid zones.  They have spacious rooms, great food, and not to mention they have complimentary tequila and mescal tastings during the week!  This is our second time staying at this resort because we loved it so much.

The Cape Thompson -  The views from this hotel are epic!  All the rooms have direct oceanfront that looks out to the iconic arch.  They also have a killer rooftop to enjoy sunsets,  drinks parried with live music.

Viceroy Los Cabos - My favorite part of this hotel was the gym.  You know when you book a hotel online, and it says there’s a gym…which is really a small abandoned hotel room with a broken bike and a few yoga mats. ugh. I hate when that happens.  This gym is definitely not that. The Viceroy delivers fitness! They know that modern day travelers like to get their sweat on.  They have the latest workout equipment and apparently Kim and Kayne’s trainer designed it, maybe that’s why the sound system was so good.

Where to eat 

Flora Farms - is a must.  This farm to table restaurant is not only adorable the food is so fresh that you're actually eating in the garden.  Make sure to try the carrot margarita.

Acre - tucked in the foothills of San Jose del Cabo this restaurant has great vibes and food.   Its lush tropical setting makes you feel like your taking a stroll through the jungle.

Calavera - If you're in the mood for tacos check out this Mexican restaurant located in Vidanta Resort.  On Tuesdays enjoy all you can eat tacos and 2 for 1 margaritas.
