Driving across the desert, through the mex1 for hundreds of miles...almost lonely (no cars on the same way, because of the low season)…you have the sensation that that particular sunset in the desert, happened extra for you; it's a present of Nature!! You'll get really surprise to see how the view change...few kilometers from desert and you arrive in San Ignacio , oasis with palms and green and old missions...sounds incredible!Quick Tips: Enjoy the wild nature, the colours of Baja...the friendly people you meet while you're on the way...Mexicans are really nice people. Never forget to stop at each oil station and have always the tank full!! Thousands of miles wait for you before ...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Walking distance from everything; also near the beach, where the day life water sports and entertaiment takes place.Best Things About the Resort:For those who don't like sand, there's a beautiful swimming pool with a swim up bar and a spa (with a gym and Turkish baths for the rainy days).Resort Experience:The unit was very nice -- a large room, a nice American-style kitchen, large bath (with separate shower and bath), plenty of space in wardrobe, clean and with all you need for a pleasant and relaxing holiday. The hotel supplies you with a fridge that is already full of beverages and also provides food (coffee, milk, cakes, etc)--of course...Read More

Cabo Wabo Cantina

Restaurant | "Cabo Wabo Restaurant"

Quote:
It's a really nice place on a terrace, with a view to a small square. It's located over the disco where concerts are often held due to the fact that the owner is Sammy Hagar, formerly of Van Hallen. They offer tequila and really good meat. It's a bit expensive, but really good.

Amarone

Restaurant | "Amarone - Italian Restaurant"

Quote:
It's a brand new restaurant. The owner arrived directly from Italy to bring the "Italian taste" around the world. He comes from Verona, Italy, where he owns a well-known restaurant all ready. There's not one special dish here because everything is really special, especially the wine Amarone! Try it, you'll like it!

El Pollo de Oro

Restaurant

Quote:
This is a place used by the locals, therefore not touristic at all! Not really nice, I mean, with candles and nice waiters, but it's for those who want to live in the city as local people do!

Simply go to a restaurant to eat good fish and good chicken without caring about the presentation. This does not mean it's dirty, just that it's simple and not touristy.

This place came recommended by a Mexican friend living in Cabo, but unfortunately I don't exactly remember the name of the street, but everybody knows where it's at.

Quote:
Cabo is full of music bars where you can drink and dance. Each bar offers a Ladies Night one day per week when they give out free drinks until 11pm. Even at the beach, several bars and restaurants offer you beverages and food -- they're a bit expensive, but you can have great time eating, drinking, and even swimming, while waiting for the sun to set. Suggested places to go for a drink: EL SQUID ROE; CABO WABO.

A really exciting holiday, all the way down from Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas with a rented car, to visiting all the little Mexican villages, to arriving one week later in Cabo San Lucas. After our late arrival in Tijuana, we started our long trip the day after with a Nissan Tsuru (not a nice car at all!). Tijuana was not dangerous as somebody had told us, but a nice place, where the colours of the fruit and vegetables at the market capture your attention. We were introduced the wonderful world of nature offered by this beautiful "narrow point of land of 1800km extending into the sea" where both Mar di Cortèz and the Pacific Ocean meet. We left Tijuana with the enthusiasm of those who wa...Read More
