Beach Vacation and Adventure in Los Cabos

IMG_6847

Last Labor Day, Denys, Jerome, Eric and I escaped to Mexico. The boys found a great deal on Zozi.com for a six-night stay at the relaxing and remote Cerritos Surf Colony, off the Pacific coast and an hour north of the main travel hub of Los Cabos.

The recently-remodeled hacienda off to the distance was also a part of the colony. The bar, the gym and the pool all available to guests by a short walk through the beach.

The hacienda was like straight from a telenovela set, where the drug lord villain lives.

Although off the beaten path, the colony was still close enough to drive to Cabo San Lucas and all its touristy offerings.
