Travel Pics – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Hola!

While this is generally an art blog, those of you who have followed me for a while know that I also occasionally like to share my travel photos with you guys!

Travel and photography are actually closely related to my art practice because I often use the photos to create new designs either directly or indirectly, and travel in general tends to inspire me creatively.

Below is an example of a product I created using a photo from this latest trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!

And yes, I did go to Cabo last year as well but we stayed in San Jose del Cabo, and this time we stayed much closer to actual Cabo San Lucas at the Hotel Riu Palace. (Unfortunately, my boyfriend and I both suffered from food poisoning on this trip, from the hotel buffet, so while the hotel itself is beautiful I can’t recommend it based on that experience.)  

Cabo is a fairly short and direct flight from Vancouver, and generally cheaper for me compared to other beach locations, so it’s kind of a no-brainer.  I will definitely be back to Cabo but will find somewhere else to stay next time.

Here are a few highlights from the trip:

We went out bar hopping one night and hit up Cabo Wabo, El Squid Roe, and La Vaquita (a cow themed night club!).  It was super fun, I definitely recommend it if you’re there.  It is very easy to just walk between the different bars/clubs and quite an experience.
