The ultimate itinerary for an adventurous honeymoon in Cabo
Cabo honeymoon, anyone?! Recently our friend, guide member, and local Mexico photographer Jillian Mitchell (remember when she shared her fave spots in Sayulita?) took a trip over to Cabo—hitting up three iconic spots along the way, San Jose Del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas, and Todos Santos. This is not your average honeymoon, Cakies! If you’re looking for an adventurous honeymoon and aren’t afraid to venture a little off the beaten path, let this itinerary (including a stay at The Cape, pictured below, and two other hip Baja hotels) be your guide! Scroll on for all the hotels + spots on her must-visit list:
When in Cabo San Lucas and seeking relaxation, The Cape is the place to go. Fun fact: It’s actually the only hotel with a view of the Cabo Arch, and it’s designed *just so* every single room has a view of it. This is totally your rejuvenate-after-a-year-of-wedding-planning-craziness type of locale.
If you’re planning an adventurous honeymoon, elopement, or wedding, it’s definitely a must to squeeze in a stop at a place like this, where everything is taken care of and you can slow down and just enjoy the scenery and amenities.
The Cape also has a famous all you can eat brunch + bloody Mary + mimosa bar. Hello!
Here’s a little bit on the lay of the land for all you new to the area. Totally doable to visit all 3 spots in one trip!
The second gorgeous hotel we’re sharing today is Hotel San Cristobal in Todos Santos:
This hotel is part of Bunkhouse Group, behind many a coveted, insta-perfect unique hotels around the Southwest and now officially, Mexico. Every good trip includes a spot where you just revel in good design!
Side note: One of their many delicious spots along the way included Flora Farms (see two weddings there here). The farm is set up to offer multiple culinary experiences open to the public using amazing, insanely fresh ingredients.
While exploring Todos Santos on foot, they stopped by another hotel, La Bohemia, which also had a beautifully curated little boutique for shopping.
Better leave some room in that suitcase!
The owners of La Bohemia also have a new property for retreats + glamping, which Jillian + her guy Gustavo got to take a little tour of.
Back in San Jose Del Cabo (the closest spot to the airport), they stayed at Acre Baja. They are famous for their restaurant, but now they have these incredible tree houses on their 25 acre property. Now *this* is the spot for an adventure, right? It’s a little tough to find as you drive in, but once you see a little path like this, you’ll know you’ve found it:
Once you arrive, grab a mezcal cocktail and explore the grounds. You might even be greeted by Burrito the (at the time, baby) Donkey.
Lots of fresh, locally sourced goodness to be devoured here.
Eeee! You’re so cute, Burrito.
During their stay at Acre, J + G went to town and explored another neat hotel with great food, Drift. They checked out all that Thursday night life in San Jose Del Cabo before retreating back to their oasis in the trees.
You can find even more of Jillian’s Cabo trip detailed on her blog.
She also photographed us on our girls’ trip to Punta Mita, if you’re looking for yet another dreamy destination! Thanks so much for showing us around today, J!
