Happy Birthday/Feliz Cumpleaños to me! I decided to return to Mexico and spend my last birthday in my 20s in Cabo. I have no regrets!
I stayed at the new adult-only and all-inclusive Riu Baja California Resort. I wanted to eat, drink and see no children for my birthday getaway. Ya tú sabes!

The food was surprisingly amazing at all the restaurants. The buffet was open but the staff served you. Unfortunately, the drink distilleries were removed from the rooms but drinks were accessible and unlimited throughout the resort. I also had access to the other two Riu resorts. Overall, I was very impressed by their covid safety protocol. Masks are required at all times except in the pool.
The Arch (must see)
The Arch is so beautiful in person. I highly recommend taking a boat tour (Cabo Escape Tour- p.s. they serve amazing tacos) and spending a few hours at Lover’s Beach.
This is the perfect photo-op spot!
Pictures do not give it justice!
Where to eat in Cabo: (always make reservations to guarantee seating)
For fun vibes and drinks, I recommended The Office and Mango Deck. They are located next to each other on the beach. They have live entertainment and give free birthday shots! I really enjoyed my time celebrating at these hot spots. They were also walking distance from my resort.
Sunset Monalisa was my favorite restaurant in Cabo with the most beautiful sunset views. The service was excellent, the ceviche was delicious and the ambiance looked like a movie scene. You must go here just for the scenery.
Casero at Viceroy Los Cabos
I had breakfast at Casero and I have to admit that was the best omelette I ever had! The service was excellent. The views were breathtaking.
I’m manifesting a beacation here one day!
Transportation is not as easy to find. Try to arrange transportation prior or rent a car. Taxis can be very expensive and Ubers are not very reliable! I suggest making a taxi friend that you can coordinate trips with during your visit.
Tip: If you have time, go to a timeshare presentation first thing in the morning. Yes, it’s two hours but you get free food and discounted or free excursions. I paid a total of $80 for ATV ride, snorkeling and glass bottom boat tour. That’s a deal!
Also, keep in mind that everything closes at 11PM in Cabo.
Cell phones were not allowed on the Cactus ATV rides. I recommend riding during sunset hours. The views are unbelievable! I even saw humpback whales. Unforgettable moments that were not captured that I will forever cherish.
Overall, I really enjoyed my vacation in Cabo. I didn’t take as many pictures on this trip but I do plan to come back soon. It was a much needed getaway to celebrate my birthday and release of my first published book, Curly Gyal Affirmations.
