  • Swimming

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    Even though the resorts in Los Cabos are located on the Pacific Ocean you can NOT swim there. The riptides are much to strong and dangerous. There are some resorts on the bay that you can swim in as well as a town beach. We drove up to Todos Santos and did some surfing up there. You need to ask locals for directions to the surfing beaches. They are...

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    While we never once felt unsafe in Cabo San Lucas, it is recommended that at night you take a taxi back to your hotel from downtown instead of walk, especially if you are a lone female. The hotels have security gates that you have to go through and being in a taxi makes it easier. And ladies, the streets are all unpaved and uneven, so walking at...

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    I dont know what to do every time I have been to Mexico I always get sick with a stomach virus. And I always stay away from the tap water. I think you get contamination from taking a shower and they put ice in all the drinks even If you ask for no ice the bacteria is still on everything ie. All food, plates glasses bottles So even though I am...

    Cabo San Lucas Warnings and Dangers

    When researching rental cars for Cabo we compared the rates of all agencies. We needed to have a 1-way car from Cabo to Loreto. Both have a number of major rental agencies to choose from. When reviewing the "total price" submitted by the agencies Budget appeared to be the lowest by a wide margin. Instead of being suspicious, we booked; BAD MOVE....

  • You get what you pay for!

    Anyone who knows me, knows that I like to save money. However, when it comes to boat travel, I will never again choose the cheapest option.I had booked a 4hr tour to Isla Espirtu Santo from La Paz with the Hotel Miramar. We departed from the Restaurant Bar at El Tecolate beach. The waves were quite high but we were assured that it was safe. Well,...

  • Livestock on the roads at night!

    Livestock in the Baja are free roaming. They wander onto roads including the main highway, usually after dusk. Be careful and slow down if you must drive at night. I was driving along when I saw these to bulls going at it. It soon got too dark for me to see the outcome... so I continued on. ;-)

  • Be prepared

    If you plan to drive extended distances in Baja make sure you are well prepared. There are hundreds of miles of road where you will see nothing as far as civilization goes. When you do come upon a small village or town, don't expect that you'll find the supplies you need. It's best to be as self sufficient as possible. Stock up on what you'll need...

  • Watch your fuel gauge!

    Fuel stations in Baja can be few and far between. If you are driving yourself down the peninsula, make sure you have an idea where the stations are and be prepared for long hauls. When I was traveling here in January 1998, there was a fuel shortage. I think the trucks were late or couldn't make it down because of flooding up north. It was El Nino...

  • Pemex station near the Los Cabos airport

    We did not have any problems during our stay and always felt safe. The trip went without incident until we headed to the airport to go home. There is a Pemex station just before you get to the airport. This is the most likely place to fill your rental car before turning it in. The attendent, with an accomplice, did an effective job of keeping me...
