WIAW: Los Cabos, Mexico

Hi guys!

I’ve been missing.

In case you don’t follow my Instagram account (with gazillions of pictures) Kurt and I were on a reward trip to Mexico. Thanks to Volkswagen for sending us to the wonderful Los Cabos for sunshine and tequila, LOTS of tequila.

Oh… and some AMAZING Mexican cocina. For us, mexican food lovers, it was a complete foodie paradise.

Why don’t I show you What I Ate Wednesday  Last Week through pictures of food, the resort and us.

Beautiful, isn’t it?

How about some food?! Jasmin’s, Downtown San Jose del Cabo is renowned as the best authentic food in town!  The Chile Relleno came highly recommended by our tour guide, a resident of San Jose del Cabo. I must say it did not disappoint, and that’s an understatement.



And then there was this drink.

There are a few names to it. The Chelada, Michelada or my favorite….. the Ojo Rojo (Red Eye)!!!!  The Chelada simply adds the juice of a lime to a beer. Michelada adds a few dashes of Worcestershire, Tabasco and Soy sauce or Maggi Seasoning Sauce. The Ojo Rojo tops this little power house off with Clamato Juice. If you love a Bloody Mary you’ll ADORE the Ojo Rojo! Kurt and I had about 25 of them between the two of us.

As I’m typing this post for you my husband is pre-making the Ojo Rojo Sauce to store “ready” in the fridge. Add a little pepper for some spice. :)

And some more pictures…

There was the hypnotic sound of the waves crashing.

The most endearing quality of Mexican people is their pride in their country and their amazing ability to be such gracious hosts.  Rarely will you find a country so clean and beautiful, full of such light hearted and humorous citizens.  Forget what you have heard in the media about Mexico, most of the trouble in the country stays far north of these wonderful and safe destinations.  Do yourself a favor and experience Mexico, we have many times!

Thanks Peas and Crayons for hosting!

    I loved looking at all your pictures on Instagram! Gave me a little glimpse into paradise during our rainy week. All that food you ate looks amazing! 2 questions:

    1. What the heck is a rewards trip? Is it from Kurt’s job? Because I want one!
    2. How the heck does your hair look so good? When I’m in humid weather my hair is limp and flat and only looks good in a pony tail. Yours is magazine perfect!

    Glad you and Kurt had so much fun together!

      Yes the reward trip is from his job paid for VW for being the Top 20 in the country. They pamper the heck out of us. We’ve gone for the last five years. So nice. :) My hair doesn’t do well in humidity. It’s a struggle but since I have naturally curly hair it sort of holds the wave a little better. But thank you you’re so sweet. You have gorgeous hair Natalie. :)

    We were there this past week for the used car managers. Do you happen to know the website where they are posting the professional pictures they took of us? It was so much fun!

      Oh wow! Were you there the same week that we were? What a small world! How did you find my blog? The pictures won’t be posted on the GenerationVW site for about 30 days from the first wave. And I agree, it was a lot of fun.

        We were there the 12-17th. I googled “VW rewards trip Cabo” and yours was the top match. I did not get any info on where to find the pics and I really want to include some in my memory book. I am impatient. Do you have a link to their site? I like your blog and awesome photography. I love cooking too. I can’t wait to do my version of shrimp tacos from the coco loco bar! Yum!

          Oh how awesome. You were there the week after us. Sorry I don’t have the link to their site but your husband/boyfriend should have the link for the GenerationVW site through his work. Thanks, share the recipe when you make them. We also couldn’t get enough of the shrimp tacos. :) I was addicted to the chilaquiles so much, I’m think of doing a post on them soon.
