Hi

I went to Cabo a few years back after a friend’s wedding in Mexico City. I am a UK bee and it is not a popular destination for Brits (infact we were the only ones there – at least I didn’t hear another Brit)

 

It was nice – we went in November and it was hot and sunny (huge change to London at that time) and where we stayed was inbetween the two towns so nice a peaceful.

But, there was not much to do – I think we would have been bored had we been there for more that a week (but that is just us) There is no culture there really, no pyramids etc.

 

I did get to learn more Spanish though as no one could understand our accents 🙂

I’ve been to Almost all tourist parts of Mexico and I think cabo is amazing. It’s very clean and safe the beaches are so pretty and the locals are very nice. 

I also would recommed couzmel I’ve been there a few times as well. Lots of stuff to do and see.

@ilovemariah4:  I’ve never been, but my parents go there once or twice a year and they absolutely love Cabo. They stay at Casa Dorada and always rave about how amazing it is. Also I know that American Airlines offers good packages for going there. And everyone I know of all ages who’ve been there say nothing but amazing things. Hope that helps!

@ilovemariah4:  I agree with the “beautiful but boring” assessment. Not as much shopping and fewer bars/clubs/restaurants than other Mexican tourist towns. If you plan to just lay on the beach it is fine.

Cabo is my absolute absolute ABSOLUTE favorite part of Mexico!  My family has gone for years. I highly recommend the Pueblo Bonito resorts (there is the Rose and the Blanco on the beach, and then the Sunset more inland).  It’s wonderful!  I’m going in May!! 🙂

I’m looking into vacationing in Cabo as well- can you swim at the resort beaches though? It seems like I’m reading alot about dangerous currents & undertow’s in the area but so many resorts have gorgeous beaches! We’re not swimming pool ppl- if there’s an ocean we’re in it!

@ilovemariah4:  We stopped there a couple times on a Cruise Ship. I thought Cabo had the most amazing water. Ok..I may have been a little tipsy, but when i entered the clear. beautiful water it felt like silk! I just sort of sat on the shore in the shallow sea sipping my margarita and took it all in. It was a truly remarkable feeling.

@BeckyS0:  You can swim on multiple beaches. They just advise you not to go very far out because it drops off pretty deep. That is why the cruise ships can come in so close to land. The water was calm and warm when i was there! Oh and crystal clear!

@BeckyS0:  I think it depends where and the time of year. I remember we could not swim in the water by our hotel in November, but we could at the beaches in town….

Went on New Years for 2013. Cabo was fanstastic! It was gorgeous and the people were so friendly. I never once felt scared or anything. It was great!!

@ilovemariah4:  Cabos is infinitely better than Cancun. Less American, not too pricey (depends on where you look), and gorgeous and equally clean, friendly, and fun! I went there for a bachelorette party, we rented a villa and had help from the security guards of the villa community to coordinate cabs as it’s hard to get around otherwise.
