my wife and I are planning on going to Cabo San Lucas in November for our 2nd anniversary. Unfortunately, the budget I have set aside is far less than what the other travel sites such expedia.com are offering. Our main agenda is to stay for 5 days at a all-inclusive hotel where she and I can relax, sight see and really do nothing.
one fellow adviced on arranging the trip with the airline and hotel separately rather than book the trip as a bundle.
Can some share perhaps thier travel trips where this trip wouldn't cost me much. Many thanks.
AI is the most expensive way to go.
If you really want to save money then do a last minute booking and hope for the best.
I've been to Cabo 3 times now and I'm going for the 4th time in 2 weeks. If there is one thing I know, Cabo is not cheap. The recent popularity it has gained and the amount of American money that comes in makes it a premiere place to travel. And, depending where you are traveling from, the flight alone will cost you a pretty penny.
If, after exhausting all of your resources, you haven't found something that fits your budget there is only one of two things you can do. Either 1) increase your budget or 2) consider another location. I have heard that Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic has some incredible deals on All-Inclusive resorts and it's gaining in popularity now. My boyfriend went there for a company trip and he said he'd like to go back.
One more thing, if you would still like to consider Cabo, I would suggest something that is not all-inclusive. I have seen the prices at the place we stay at for all-inclusive deals and it's really expensive. You are stuck eating only at the hotel and if you don't like their food then it's a waste of money. Also, you'll miss out on the great restaurants in the area that are better than any hotel can offer and are less expensive. Also, it is cheaper to go to a local grocery store for your beer & drinks then it is for your "included" drinks. Hope that helps.
(Oh, and it's not always cheaper to book the hotel & flight together, but it usually is. I would check both options...do your research!)
