Momlogic's Julie: I recently had the chance to visit Cabo San Lucas and was pleasantly surprised by how kid-friendly it is!

Travel with Kids: Cabo San Lucas

I traveled to the Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa, a perfect place to take children. My room had a full kitchen, which I always appreciate when traveling. I don't enjoy eating out every single meal with my kiddos, who can be on the fidgety side. So being able to cook a quick lunch or breakfast is a great perk for me. (For those who don't want to cook on vacation, there's an all-inclusive option, too. Calima Restaurant was especially delicious.)

The hotel is beachfront, but has a great family pool. Kids will also love the miniature golf course. And the kids' club was surprisingly affordable. It's a great place to put the kids for a few hours while you enjoy a little "me time" at the Thalassotherapy Spa. (My massage was awesome!)

I had been a little nervous about traveling to Mexico, but always felt safe there. Everyone at the resort made me feel at home, and I met several families who had been coming year after year.

The resort is very centrally located. It's just a five-minute walk to the marina, the town and the water taxis. I scored some great bargains in the town, including an adorable purse made of gum wrappers -- for only 12 bucks!

There are many wonderful excursions available. While there, I went snorkeling and kayaking through Cabo Expeditions. The water is so blue! All excursions can be booked directly through the concierge at Playa Grande Resort & Grand Spa. I didn't have the chance to visit Cabo Dolphins, but I heard that the "swim with the dolphins" experience is ideal for families with kids.

I can't wait to go back again!

Travelers can book the "Escape to Cabo" package at Playa Grande Resort from now through December 22, 2010. For a minimum three-night stay, guests will enjoy deluxe accommodations and access to a premium all-inclusive package, including breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resort's on-site restaurants as well as an assortment of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Additionally, guests are invited to take in the resort's live entertainment, theme nights, daily beach and pool activities as well as access to the on-site miniature golf course.

PLEASE don’t take your families here! I went to Cabo on my honeymoon and it was WONDERFULLY kid free! Mostly couples and groups of 20 somethings having a blast boozing, swimming, and exploring. Don’t ruin it by bringing the kiddos! I saw maybe one family with a stroller and they were so out of place. And we weren’t there during spring break either, it was September!

Cici if your looking for a child free vacation don’t stay at a hotel that has a kids club. It’s not your place to instruct any person where they should take their children.

Hi Ellen,

I watch your show almost everyday possible. My grandkids sometimes take over the TV and I am not able to but I try to tape it.

I am a 58 year old who has never EVER went on vacation with my children. I would love to win a trip to Cabo San Lucas.

I have been fighting with social security now for 4 years trying to get disability and have appealled it twice. To be able to spend some fun, quality time that my kids and grandkids to remember would be so awesome. I would love to enter into your trip giveaway.

Love your show. Sandi

Hi Ellen,
I would love to take my 13 year old Grand daughter and husband to Cabo San Lucas. She doesn’t get to Vacation very much and I know this would be the highlight of her life. Please consider us to win this fabulous vacation. My husband works all of the time to help our families out, he could really use a happy Vacation.
Your #One Fan,
Tamara Lesley

I would love to be able to take my daughter and my grandkids on a vacation. My daughter found her brother dead in his room and then 10 months later my husband died, she went from being a kid in high school to an adult in a matter of hours. I know life is not fair but for a child to have to go through this at a young age is just wrong and she could use some fun time.
