You might want to rethink the car. We've always rented a small car for less than $150.00 for the week (letting the credit card company cover the insurance on the vehicle itself). By the time you factor in the cost of the shuttle/taxi to and from the resort, the car doesn't cost much at all. Driving is easy--4 lanes, divided highway--and you have the convenience of being able to go where you want whenever you want. If you want to go to Todos Santos (which I recommend), you can. If you want to go to the glass factory, you can. If you want to go to a quiet private beach, you can.

ATM/VISA There are ATM's everywhere; it's easy to get money, and the machines dispense pesos or dollars. Some people have reported having their credit cards compromised after using them in Cabo, so that's something to consider. Traveler's Checks have become sort of out of date. the resort and banks will take them; most other places will look at them funny, and may not accept them.

Cabo is fun; you're going to enjoy yourselves. You should look on the TripAdvisor forums for tons of information from people who either live in Cabo full time or go there 3 or 4 times a year. They have the absolute best restaurant lists, etc. http://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g150773-i83-Los_Cabos_Baja_California.html

That would be great. When will you be down there? The only thing we have planned right now is a cooking class at one of the local farms (Huerta Los Tamarindos) on Saturday.

Beth,

I have been to Cabo At least 5 times during the Festival. Last year it was much smaller and was relocated,to the road in behind the Tropicana restaurant. It used to be set up on the Main Street in downtown San Jose del Cabo. There is food stands, art work, trinkets, etc to look through. Carnival rides are set up and there is the rodeo to take in. There are different Mexican entertainers on the main stage every night during the festival. It is fun to do at least once, just a warning though it is VERY LOUD, lol. Bring some ear protection! If driving, go early, last year the traffic jam was crazy during show times.

A couple of my personal favorite things to check out aside from the festival is the Organico Market on the weekend. (It is a great place to get some inexpensive food for lunch or to take home for dinner. They have local fresh produce, fresh fish, art, crafts, jewellry and entertainment. I go every week. love it!) and check out the Artwalk on Thursday nights downtown.

if interested we can meet up around the pool and chat more.

Shelley

I have an 8 night stay at the Coral Baja resort for a 2 bedroom Penthouse June 24 through July 2nd and I will not be able to go & I am looking for somebody that would be interested in working out a deal with me and taking over the 8 night stay. This room & resort looks amazing. I'm bummed that I won't be able to make the trip, but hoping I can work out a deal with a fellow Worldmark owner. I had to book this room 13 months in advance. It has 2 king size beds & a private hot tub on the deck overlooking the ocean.
Please contact me at rguitar@charter.net to discuss further details.
I hope I am posting this in the appropiate section. If I am not, I would sure appreciate any advice.
I do not really want to sell it on e-bay or Craigslist.
I need to find somebody in the next few weeks to take over this Coral Baja vacation or I will need to cancel it and re-book a different vacation that I will be able to use.

You might want to rethink the car. We've always rented for less than $150.00 for a week (smallest car). When you consider the price of getting to and from the resort plus a trip or two into town or to the glass blowing factory, etc., the car is pretty cheap--provided, of course, that you let the insurance provided by your credit card company cover the vehicle itself. The only other insurance you need is 3rd party liability, which you must get from the rental company, and it's about $10.00 a day (Avis includes the 3rd party liability in the rate they quote and I think Hertz does also; for others, add $10.00 a day to the quoted rate.)

There is a lot to see/do in the area and having your own car makes it much more likely you'll get "out and about."

ATM machines are very easy to find. Visa/Mastercard are widely accepted, but a lot of people complain about their credit card numbers being "borrowed" after a trip to Cabo. We like the security of using an ATM (they give out either dollars or pesos) and just using cash when we're out. It's been our experience that Travelers' Checks are no longer much of an alternative; anyplace other than a bank or the resort will either not take them or look at them oddly and hesitate.

March is a good time to be there. The whales seem to be late this year, so you may find them still "in residence." In any case, you're going to have a great time!

Does anyone know if the resort has egg crate toppers for the beds? I have been going to WMCB for over 10 years and if there is one thing we have a hard time dealing with is the beds are so hard.

I agree and will add that the septic system drain field is located under the volleyball court; think about what is going into the sea in front of most of the resorts.... stick to the pool.

Just use the bus. It's right there at the street! I'm 74 yrs. old and used bus to go grocery shopping at Wal Mart and to downtown to look around. It was fun and quite an experience. Don't bother with expense of car. Sitting around relaxing, playing Bingo in the pool during Happy Hour, etc was just so fun and relaxing! Have a terrific time!

Hello everyone!

Denbo here. I have posted a number of threads on this forum and am happy to share with you a travel document that my wife Tami and I have put together over the past years from our trips to Cabo. We are heading back to WM CB next Sunday for a week and we are so looking forward to it. We go once or twice a year. As we often do we augment our stay with an all inclusive stay and this year we are doing it before we come to WM; a few nights in Cabo and I will let you know how it goes.

Looking forward to the trip.

Dennis

Currently at Coral Baja and just a few things to mention after my first few days here.
I prebooked a shuttle from the airport with Transbaja/Transcobo (2 people, both ways). I could not have been happier. While most outside the airport were in white, their staff were in bright orange and there were several of them. After checking in with their leader I was given a voucher for the return trip (with the time they would pick me up). We drove in a fairly new van with 2 other couples. No issues with the company. Just remember to IGNORE the large amount of people in the room just after clearing customs and take the door to your right IMMEDIATELY. They will ask to help you - ignore them!

The front desk was offering an exchange rate of 11.5 for US/CDN. I found a bank a block away (Actinver Mall with Applebees and just past Nextel) that exchanged my CDN for 12.25 (US would have been 12.90). I saved much $ for my $300 cash. The teller gave me a # to make it easier next time as she now had all my passport details. The bank next to Applebees will not deal with non-members.

Just had lunch at Sardina Cantina to the left of the entrance to the resort. Highly recommend it.

Corryjamez,

In the one bedroom, you must access the bathroom from the bedroom. The one bedroom deluxe is a shade larger and has an entry to the bath from the bedroom and the hall. This allows for entry into the bath without going through the bedroom if the master and the murphy bed are used. We used one of the deluxe units for our honeymoon ten years ago. Some nights we slept on the murphy bed in the living room, with the slider open, just to hear the waves. For one couple, either unit would be fine. I would prefer either to a studio though for a honeymoon.

John

"Over 80% of the 2 bedrooms are in the back building as it is 2 bedroom only so if you booked a 2 bedroom expect to be back there."

This is not accurate. You will only be in the back building IF you reserve a 2 bedroom, back building. This is a separate reservation category.

I am arriving in a week and booked with TRANSCABO. The price was better than most and the registration online was efficient. They have my flight # so know when to expect me and they will arrange departure pick up when they drop me off.

My reservation is a Studio, Phase 3. Does that mean Building 3 as shown on the resort site map? Do all the units face to the front side of the building?

One of the selections when booking is the back building, my guess is you selected that option. You might check if anything else is available. If there is nothing try getting on the wait list by calling reservations.

I've just booked Coral Baja for my family of 5 (teenage and up) over July 4th week and they told me we have a 2 bedroom in the back building, no ocean view. Question is, how do they know what room we're getting already? I thought they allocated your room when you arrived. And is there anything I can do to change it for an ocean view?
Thanks!
