For my third and final 30th birthday celebration, I hosted a joint birthday party with my good friend Edward in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. 10 of us rented a house and soaked up the sun (and tequila).
We all met at SFO and flew down via Virgin America together on a Thursday. The party got started right away. The flight attendant eventually asked us to sit properly because we were breaking FAA Regulations.
We stayed in Pedregal which is a gated community up on the hills. Our house was amazing.
We found it on VRBO. Here’s the listing and some photos.
The living room was perfect for playing King’s Cup every night before going out on the town.
On our first night we had dinner and birthday candles at a place our cab driver dropped us off (no idea where or what it’s called), then checked out the night club scene at Mandala and Pink Kitty. I found this Trip Advisor post helpful in deciding where to go (Mandala’s description was quite enticing).
On Friday, we relaxed at Medano Beach all day.
Then had happy hour at The Office.
Later that night we went out to El Squid Roe.
And came home with this fun souvenir.
On Saturday we went on a snorkel catamaran cruise. On our way to boarding, our group couldn’t resist the Wildlife Conservation booth where you could play with baby lion Amy if you gave a donation. Amy was stinking cute, but also really sad. Hopefully the money really went to a charitable cause.
After the four hour cruise (complete with tequila shots and some poor seasick souls), we went back home to spend the remaining sunlit hours at our infinity pool. The bottom level of our house had windows that looked into the pool.
That night we made a Costco run and cooked a feast at home.
And played our final rounds of King’s Cup. I’m amazed that we were able to finish that 3L bottle of tequila.
It was hard to leave on Sunday, another clear and beautiful day.
Pretty impressive birthday, right?
