Cabo San Lucas in October

An October 2005 trip to Cabo San Lucas by chris1916

Quote: We visited Cabo and stayed at the Playa Grande Resort. What a top-notch resort! I highly recommend this place. This is our third year visiting, and we upgraded from a pool-side view to a marina view, which is under construction. The weather was great for fishing.

Cabo San Lucas in October

Overview

Quote:
Fishing was fantastic for my son and I. We used a different boat than our usual Solmar Fleet. We didn't do as good as we would have liked to, but we did bring in some nice 35-plus dorados. Took a day trip up to Todos Santos. Loved the quaint town. The people were very friendly. Had a wonderful meal at Tequila Flats Cafe across the street from the Hotel California. Laid by the pool and just soaked up the sun. Morning walks along the beach to watch the sun rise and the fishing boats head out was unbelievable.Quick Tips: Go on the timeshare tour. It is only 90 minutes, and you can just say no. The discount and freebie tickets make it worth the presentation. We had three dinners compliments ...Read More

Best Things Nearby:It is an easy 10-minute walk to the marina and town. There are lots of great restaurants and an un-crowded beach--just don't go swimming because of the undertow.Best Things About the Resort:Beautiful!!! There are lots of pools to choose from, spacious rooms, super service from our maid (Rosy), and a very friendly staff.Resort Experience:Playa Grande is, in my opinion, the best resort in Cabo. It is away from the noise of the city but close enough to walk to (10 minutes). It offers everything that one could need. The staff is very helpful and generous. Most of the construction is done, except for the new rooms up on the Ridge. We liked the...Read More

We loved the atmosphere. Being able to sit and watch the boats in the marina made this a fun spot for our family. Service was not the fastest, but we were ok with that. We were in no hurry. Shrimp was the best...I was stuffed!

Week 41 is during the yearly festival in the town of Todos Santos. I can't remember the name of the festival, but it deals with the local Catholic Church. Very carnival atmosphere with rides and booths. Lots of cafes to enjoy a nice lunch at. Art galleries everywhere. The drive is enjoyable and lots to see.

This is the marlin capitol of the world and they mean it. I have caught and released a 250 pounder striped marlin. The pictures that were taken will bring back memories for years and the marlin was released to enjoy another day.

Nightlife

Attraction | "Night Life in Cabo"

Quote:
More bars and dance joints than you will ever see. El Squid Roe was probably our favorite. Very noisy, but hey, that is one reason you go... Cabo Wabo and Gigglin Marlin were fun spots also.

The Playa Grande has everything you need to relax and unwind. The moment you step into the large lobby to check in, your eyes are going everywhere. It is beyond beautiful. The desk staff was very helpful and friendly at all hours. Easy changeover on currency right there. Their is a sports bar off to the right if you want to watch games and have a drink. A great spa and weight room. Miniature golf was fun with the family. I believe there were 6 pools and a hot tub. Get to a lounge chair fairly early, they get gobbled up fast. Breakfast was $12, but all you can eat and drink. It was a good way to start the day. The rooms were superb! Lots of room for everyone. Rooms were decorated very ni...Read More
