Los Cabos- Part I

So I thought the only thing I would have to write was how we booked this vacation, but turns out that D&M are up to their usual shenanigans...
For the first time in our lives, we paid for internet in an airport (Madrid) on the way back to Mexico. But we had a task at hand: book a vacation we would leave on just 36 hours later. Months of research about Cancun went down the drain when we checked the weather and saw a lot of RAIN. So we checked the weather for a few more Mexican destinations and decided on Cabo! Then it was a matter of finding a few packages, narrowed down to a few that looked good (all inclusive, ocean view, in our price range) and finally we checked tripadvisor to get it down to our finalist. Ten minutes before boarding our connection, it was booked.
After a day in Mexico City (see previous post), we woke up early to fly to San Jose del Cabo. Neither us of knew anything about the place other than the fact that Californians vacation there and that they get earthquakes. Imagine our surprise flying in over seemingly never-ending mountainous desert and a beautiful coastline.
We took a shared cab to the resort on the Corridor. The rest of the day was spent lamenting the ingenuity of an all-inclusive hotel...a bit different than our previous backpacking adventures.

Day 1 went well; but adventure day was still on the horizon...
