Cabo San Lucas: Oh No They Didn't
Yes, they did. Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag of MTV's "The Hills" fame eloped this weekend and got hitched at the One and Only Palmilla Resort. For those of you who don't follow "The Hills," this basically means there is no chance in hell that Lauren and Heidi will be best friends again, but did we really want that to happen anyway?
What really has me stumped, though, is the appeal of Cabo San Lucas. Based on all of the tropical and romantic destinations in this world, why does Cabo stand out for celebrities? Maybe it's close enough to Los Angeles that celebrities can make it a weekend getaway, but I would certainly fly an extra hour or two to experience something authentic (like to Hawaii, for instance?) rather than Cabo, which is like a hot Disneyland for adults (and when is that ever fun?). I just remember spending a day there last month on what must have been the hottest day of the year and thinking I was going to sweat to death. I actually wrung out my clothes from all the sweat that day.
There are, of course, two redeeming things about Cabo and maybe just one with regard to Speidi:
- The famous "El Arco," which is a natural rock arch formed by crashing surf is a sight to behold if you make your way to Lover's Beach.
- Zippers, a surf break located about forty minutes by car from the Cabo San Lucas Harbor, is one of the best breaks in Mexico if not the world.
- I can look forward to jubilation upon hearing the news of Speidi's breakup/divorce; it's bound to happen.
