YIKES – I did it. We are going to Cabo! I can’t get out of it now, even if I tried. YIKES!
I seriously cannot believe I did that!
But here some good news! The hotel cost $279.00 total, not EACH!
So it is half what I thought it would cost. Thank goodness!
The airfare wasn’t cheap, but at least its non-stop each way and its only a couple of hours each way and that was the cheapest I could find.
The deal at the hotel includes a dinner cruise:
It also includes a shuttle to the hotel. I have to figure out how to get to the airport the day we leave though. Hopefully they won’t charge too much! 4 nights. Really good Travelzoo deal.
So freaking pretty.
I will need to park my car at the airport and I think I know a place that I used to use that is reasonable. Maybe $80.00 for the four nights. I’ll confirm.
This is going to be expensive, however, relatively speaking, but we are going to Mexico!! It is the first time my kid gets to use her passport.
The incidentals are going to add up. Food, cost for baggage, car park, etc. We will need to check two bags and carry on two bags and within my bag will be a bottle of wine! Trader Joes cheap, two buck Chuck!
I’m on a mission now to be able to bounce back from this expense. I hope and pray that there are no emergencies in my immediate future. If they are, well, I will deal!
Omg, we are going to Mexico! September 2014. I can’t believe we actually have something to look forward to!
Okay, now to address the Debbie Downer comments and believe me, I hear ya! Actually, I don’t think of you as Debbie Downer at all, I think of you as Patty Practical! Ha ha, I just made that up! You are all right, every single word of advice you gave was sound. Unfortunately, I am shooting from the hip right now, and I already shot by the time I read your comments!
Will I be sorry, lets hope not, was it smart, definitely not, am I looking forward, yep. Will I lose sleep, probably.
I’m not spending a dime this month or next in order to pay for this (which btw is completely paid for from this check!). I’m a good juggler! But lets just hope I don’t lose my transmission or any other emergency or I am screwed… but I will deal.
Stay tuned for lots of sweat and fretting and probably lots ways I stay cheap!
