I am not going to write much...
I am not going to write much about this place since everybody can imagine how this place must look like and what you can expect from it when you go there. It's a beach resort with all kind of typical restaurants and bars, big hotels, golf resorts, McDonalds, Senhor Frog, Hard Rock Cafe and, and, and
Yes, there are wonderful beachesm, yet most of them are not for swimming due to the strong currents. If you are a surfer, good you can have fun here. If you are a budget traveler, wrong place - very expensive! If you want to have fun and don't want to bother with Spanish - right place for you, everybody speaks English. If you have been to Cancun, or Puerto Vallarta, or Mazatlan - same stuff.
Suitcases for your clothing and a backpack to carry all of those goodies you find. No laundry bag is needed since most accomodations have washers and dryers. No jacket. Maybe a light sweater just in case. Sandals are a must, good walking shoes, lots of shorts, t-shirts, tank tops, caps/hats, shades (very dark), rain would be welcome, therefore no rain cover or clothing should be required, beware of flash floods. Bring sun screen especially if you are sensitive to sunlight. All medications to last for your stay. I've heard you can obtain refills in Cabo if you run out. Narcotic medications should be accompanied by a valid prescription bottle. A small first aid kit, soap, and toiletries you normally use at home should be brought with you since Cabo is expensive for most everything except booze. I personally use a good Digital Camera which takes photos just as good as a 35mm camera. Bring plenty of film. If you bring a digital camera, be sure you have a means to transfer your images to storage at the end of the day. I take my notebook with me for the job so I can also edit them on the fly. Bring extra batteries as well. SUNSCREEN cannot be expressed enough. The sun in Cabo is very bright. If you are stying in a Condo with all the comforts of home (timeshare, etc), you will want to lay in some food stuffs. Beware that food is expensive in Cabo. They will not allow you to bring in meat or vegtables. Bring canned food. If you drink coffee, bring a can of coffee AND sugar. Those two items are especially expensive. Bring the munchies you like also. While in Cabo, you can keep up on your favorite TV shows. While there in '01, I was surprised to see all of my local TV stations off Satellite (Seattle KOMO, KIRO, and KING). Amazing to wake up to see the rain and traffic mess at home. Makes you appreciate where you are. The TV will depend on where you are staying. We had a couple Los Angeles stations for a couple days. CNN and some premium channels are available, but then who wants to spend their time in Cabo watching the tube when the action is in town?
On the road from Los Cabos to Todos Santos, there is a dirt road that leads to a surfing beach. Its much closer to Todos Santos. There are no signs so you have to ask the locals for some landmarks: curve in road etc. The one we went to had 2 shops to rent surf boards as well as a bar/resturant. Nice beach, good food. Prices for board rentals was reasonable.
Puerto Paraiso Mall
Puerto Paraiso Mall is the nicest mall in Cabo, and one of the nicest malls I have been to. Marble floors and fountains are found inside. There are all kinds of shops here, including clothing, sunglasses, decorations, art, jewelry, and others.
Some nice restaurants, including Ruth's Chris, and a couple of night spots are located here, along with a movie theatre. The third floor has entertainment, such as a bowling alley, movie theatre, and arcade, with a few restaurants.
Wild Coyote, a bar based on "Coyote Ugly" was located here but has shut down.
Tons of Fun
Eating and Drinking by day, turns out of control nightclub at night. Even more crazy than the Giggling Marlin. The later it gets, the more wild this place gets. Dancing on the tables, shots of tequilia, and congo lines going through the entire place are included in the nightly fun. Not for the fainthearted! Casual
