There's only one word for Cabo - Spectacular

Overview

Cabo has two lovely towns to explore and a very busy marina full of sport fishing boats. The guys loved it! They fished three days out of our visit. The coolers went home empty, but a 120 pound marlin was captured in pictures. Memories for always! Great time.Quick Tips: We stayed at Club Regina Westin. It's colorful, comfortable and well maintained. The service is splendid, and the staff friendly and likeable. There are other lovely resorts in the area, and no matter which you choose, you will enjoy this magical area. Best Way To Get Around: Taxis seem expensive, but if there is a group as large as ours, the price was comparable to waiting for the shuttle to get to town. Shuttles run...Read More

There was food to please our entire party of six, including the three-year-old. Service was superb, and the music very nice. I cannot say enough about this place. It was the only indoor restaurant we enjoyed in Cabo. All the rest were outside.

Restaurant

Food here was plentiful and especially the bread was noteworthy. The cuisine was excellently done, service was personal, friendly, helpful and discreet. We ate outdoors, and a simple meal was even prepared for the three-year-old. Service for six was very good.

Cab drivers know where it is, and also, Diamonds International in San Jose recommended it. It was definitely worth the trip. Quiet and very pleasant.

To fish in Cabo San Lucas, you must be at the marina by 6:30am. All the boats depart at 7am and seem to go all in the same direction. They all have tracking equipment, sonar, GPS systems, etc.

You need to be well slathered with sunscreen and reapply it several times! Burns are common.

Bars around the marina offer drinks and food, as well as fish tales from all the other fisherman on any given day! It's great fun!

The old Hollywood movie set pirate ship is now used as a sightseeing boat. We took the sunset cruise. The music was loud, the drinks and snacks were served by young energetic fun pirates, there were jokes and contests, and dancing (at least, by my three-year-old granddaughter!) Only one thing was a disappointment . . . they didn't hoist the sails!

We motored out around Land's End, the Arch, and into the Pacific, and back again, and watched the sun go down. Most people had a great time! It was a good way to end our last night on vacation.

To get to the Arch, we took a glass bottom boat from Juanchos which is located on a public beach. The boats were panga type boats, small and only pulled onto the sand so people could climb in while getting wet on the beach! It was great fun! The fish are plentiful, and kids like seeing them through the glass, but the rocks at lands end are spectacular, and the Pacific gushes through the gaps. There are sea lions on one rock, sleeping of course, and a fews rocks covered with pelicans. We have tons of pictures. Of course, I fell into the Sea of Cortez getting off this fun boat! No one seems to swim at Cabo, the undertow is too great, and the beaches while lovely and compelling are very dangerous....Read More
