We plan on doing 2-3 really fancy dinners (C at Palmilla, Ventanas, etc...) so for those evenings, we plan to budget a big chunck of money. (We hope it's worth it!)
But for the other days, we are not sure what a realistic budget would be. We are staying at the Marquis for 7 nights. We're assuming that we'll have the continental bkfst included in the rate at the Marquis every morning. For simplicity, let's assume we'll go out into town for lunch and dinner. How much money should we expect to pay for a regular lunch and dinner?

broken down (roughly) as follows:
after dinner/entertainment: $50
my estimate could be conservative or could be high depending on what you like to do, and how much you drink, but Cabo is pretty expensive. On our last trip there we stayed at the Westin for 4 nights. We spent about $250 per day, and we bought beer and snacks at the store, and the discount vouchers to save. So it definitely could have been more. And we did not eat at 'C' or any other super upscale restaurant. I think our most upscale meal was the Office.

The only reason we did not consider staying at an AI for the honeymoon is because my FI and I LOVE going to try new restaurants when we travel. For us that's part of our traveling experience. It sounds great not to have to worry about having cash and budget though, and RIU and Dreams both look beautiful. So it all depends on your taste and what you value in a vacation/honeymoon.

Probably because last night when we were putting a list together of things we (ha ha "I") wanted to do... (i.e. couples massage, etc...) I reminded him that we did not stay at the Palmilla or Ventanas so we could have more spending $$. So I think it sank in that I didn't want to be nickled and dimed for food, activities, etc... Luckily we prepared and saved up, but still.... $300 a day?!? It's nuts! I'm trying not to think about it!

Can you believe how fast it is approaching? We still wonder where the time went!
After seeing the big picture, that taco stand is not sounding so bad! ha ha
I'm going to do some research on more affordable places to eat. I do remember seeing some postings in tripadvisor, etc... I'll let you know what I find.
