NEWS 10.10.07 Spotlight on Cabo

View Larger Map

We have seen two Cabo San Lucas resorts prominently featured as filming locations this week so we couldn’t resist exploring both and all that Cabo has to offer.

The first resort, Esperanza is where the Ben Stiller comedy The Heartbreak Kid was filmed. This resort is centrally located within walking distance to downtown cabo. They offer luxury accommodations, private beaches, and a world class spa. The resort also offers several packages including honeymoon packages starting at $9745 for 7 nights. Though the price may seem high, we are sure it is worth it, just check out the reviews on Trip Advisor.


Normally, we wouldn’t plug the competition but this pop culture travel site has a great write up about the resort, the movie, Cabo, where to stay, and what to do.


Next up, Me by Melia which was the location of the “romantic getaway” Bret took with the two finalists on VH1’s Rock of Love with Bret Michaels. Hotel Chatter has a nice write up on this one. Me Cabo is also right on the beach, features a spa, meeting facilities, dining, and deluxe rooms starting at a reasonable $269 a night.


If you watched the final episode of Rock of Love you know that Heather and Bret went off-road racing near Cabo. If this is your idea of a good time, Wide Open Baja Racing Adventure is the place for you. For as little as $250 you can experience driving a real Chenowth off road race car. There are limited racing hours so be sure to call ahead for a reservation. You may also know that for his date with Jes, Bret chartered a yacht for the day which included a romantic lunch and plenty of time relaxing in the sun.  If this is more your speed, Pisces Sport Fishing offers luxury yacht rentals or if you are more like Ben Stiller’s character in The Heartbreak Kid, they also offer charters for deep sea fishing.
