Hot Feet & Warm Soul in San Jose del Cabo

It started around January… a recurring vision of sandy beach and fiery sun to warm my soul…  and didn’t ease up until I was poolside with a plate of fish tacos and a generous helping of smooth guacamole.  San Jose Del Cabo has become the stuff of my dreams and the place I think of first when I want to unwind and unplug.

Last year I traveled to Cabo and stayed at the Hilton which is very plush and a great way to touch down for a few days of doing nothing (which is quite pleasant I must admit!)  This year it was the same but after a few days we changed hotels (Casa Natalia, boutique hotel) and locations (San Jose del Cabo) for a walkable experience via newly cobblestoned streets and updated core.

I loved Casa Natalia with its ultra chic setting and simple but comfortable rooms.  The hotel is right on the plaza so you can go out for a coffee at the French Riviera (great pastries) and then check out Casa Dahlia (art, light food) or Mi Casa Azul (nice collection of items for you or your home.)  Casa Natalia (whew, seems like everything here starts or ends with a “casa”) also offers breakfast delivered to your room for dining al fresco. A great way to start the day!

Fresh fruit for our daily desayuno…breakfast!

One thing I will say is this:  Casa Natalia offers natural cooling with ceiling fans and open windows which isn’t for everyone but was fine with us.   If you are looking for air-conditioned bliss, a larger hotel is probably a better fit.  However, the location and amenities overrule the lack of A/C in my opinion (unless of course, it’s the middle of summer when it’s blistering hot.)

 Next up:  the food and fun of Cabo.  Don’t miss the next post coming your way soon!

I’m a tech marketer by day and a wannabe cook once my laptop powers down. These days, the line between quitting time and play is pretty thin. It's why I like a little discovery in the kitchen— creativity in prep and ingredients—to take the edge off the mundane and make food and feasts fun. Because let’s face it, if it’s not fun, then somewhere, somehow, you’re doing it wrong.
