Gale-- Don't chuckle if my question sounds dumb. You mentioned $48 RT between the airport and Coral Baja. Is that per person? I think I remember it being maybe a 15-20 min. trip. There'll be four of us. If it's PP, that's $96 each way for our 15-20 min. ride. That seems kinda steep. Am I missing something? Thanks-- the Ol' Coach

Mexico's electricity is the same as the U.S.--current and plugs are identical.

Do you need an adaptor for the electrical outlets at the resort. I have a medical device that I need to use at night.

Just make a reglar reservation for a two bedroom unit, then call vacation planning and have your name put on a "wait list" for the Penthouse. We did that last year and it all worked out. The view is awesome from the "top"

Use Translife Cabo, www.cabo-shuttle.com. Last year it was $48 RT, and they send you a picture of what your driver looks like so you won't get taken by the crooks in the airport!

To 1 Kodiak: That's why we use the service recommended by Time Share - www.cabo-shuttle.com. It's fine and dependable and on time. Because of the concern they send you a picture of your driver so there won't be a problem. And, they tell you exactly what to do to avoid the shysters inside airport! I'm looking at my reservation form and it was $48 RT. Don't rent a car. There's an exciting bus ride into downtown Cabo you really need to experience! Have fun!

We were there in Cabo last year, and going to Palm Springs in April and the credits haven't gone up! You might want to call WorldMark and see what's going on! I've been an owner since '95 and they've stayed the same. HOWEVER, new places are charging higher amount of credits! I know, I didn't think they would do that, but they have! Good luckj!

We were there last year and if you want a fun experience take the bus. We went to Walmart on bus, and we also went to downtown Cabo and that was an exciting speed race, something you have to experience. I would do it again, and I'm 74! And it's super cheap. We did rent a car from the time share for 1 day and it was super expensive. We did not take the insurance. I rent cars 4-5 times per year and never take their coverage! Have fun!

We were there last year, and the Time Share gave us the name of transportation to the hotel from the airport. It's called Translife Cabo. I believe you can go thru Condo, E-mail them at www.cabo-shuttle.com Good luck!

In addition to Dennis' list, you might check the Cabo forum on www.tripadvisor.com Trapper John has a truly excellent list of restaurants and other information which would be a supplement.

Yer old Forum pal-- the Old Coach. PS-- To ANYONE with the answer---- also thanks in advance!

Generally, the Mexican 3rd party liability (to cover damage you do to others or their property with the car--not the vehicle itself) is about $10.00 a day from the car rental company. The $150.00 for liability seems high.

In the past, we've had trouble, from time to time--not each time--using an American Express card. You might want to be certain your car rental company will accept American Express. I looked into the American Express policy and, ultimately, decided it wasn't that different from the free insurance provided by Visa and Mastercard. Has that changed? We'll be renting a car this summer, so I'm interested in your research.

We, like you, prefer to be in charge of our own transportation (though we do use city buses in various cities), and I think that when you factor in the cost of the transportation from the airport to the resort and back to the airport, the car doesn't wind up costing much at all.

I make myself crazy everytime we get ready to head to Coral Baja, trying to figure out to rent or not to rent a car? insure or not insure?
Peeling through the quagmire of information, I got a car for less than $100 for 10 days. Then I called American Express and they sold me a premium car rental program for $24.95 that covers all of what the CDW policy does if I charge the rental on Amex. That is not LIABILITY!!
The rental company offered a minimum coverage policy included for the rental fee, but there is a very low $ coverage. I opted for the SLI (liability) coverage for an additional $150.
For what we plan to do it just makes more sense to rent than cab. We have back & forth from the airport, one trip to costco & a couple to Mega (I have a broken foot) a couple of trips to Rosies, Dantes & Hangman as well as the dentist and the artwalk in San Jose one evening, so I think that it will still be less costly than cabs. Also that feeling of freedom we Americans enjoy and we are so spoiled!
Anybody have any input on the car, rental, insurance thing? not the spoiled part! LOL

Hi, We have rented a car for the whole visit on a few of our Coral Baja trips but usually we prefer not to. Cabs can be expensive to Cabo but are not to San Jose. We usually walk to San Jose and back, take the bus to Cabo and sometimes take a cab back. Most booked activities will pick you up and drop you off. We sometimes like heading to Todos Santos for a day as well when we are down there and it is not very expensive to book a van and driver - we might want to have a margarita at Tequila Sunrise and surely do not want to drive if we do!

We will, though, rent a car everytime we go down, just for the first day. We pick it up at the airport then, usually, the rental company will pick the car up at the Coral Baja the next day or you can drop it off at a resort nearby (check to see that they have a location in one of the resorts). That way we can head to Costco and get supplies.

Hello, I will be at CB in June. We will be traveling with 2 teenagers. I do not see anyone that has rented a car lately and is it worth it? we plan on doing a few activities and if it is going to cost a lot for taxis and shuttles is it worth getting the car. I Just can not find anyone that has rented a car lately. How much was the total car rental with the required INS? Is the bus system a viable option?

Fishing this time of year from CB is usually a Kmart special. The fish you get can be caught with less of a boat ride if you go out of Pamillia.They have 28 foot sedan cruisers or pangas there. The location eliminates a long worthless boat ride to the same location all the charters head for. If you want to get a chance at better fish you need to fish out off East Cape. The Barilles area offers better fishing but you would have to drive there about 50 miles north. You can go out of the San Jose' boat harbor and try to request they fish north along East Cape area. Have done that before with a lot more action and fish variety than the shoreline along the road to Cabo, which as I said,is where 95% of the pangas head for......Good fishing..

Hello all,
We have been to Coral Baja once before and are really looking forward to going again next year. However since next year is a "special birthday" for one member of our group, we would really love to get one of the two bedroom penthouse units and while I understand that there are only a few, how the heck do you get a reservation for one of them???? I would really like to make this happen, even if it's not close to the Feb birthday. I've heard something about making a "running reservation" but have NO idea how it works.
Please, any help will be greatly appreciated.

I'm hoping to go fishing on a Panga while at the resort next week (Feb 13-18th, 2012) and I was wondering if there is anyone who will be there at that time who would be interested in sharing a boat with me? It would be an all-day trip (or close to).

If you browse back in this forum, or search on the Left, you'll see that the best way is to book through Transcabo. We use them every time we go and have never had an issue. Note: all of the travel sites in Cabo state there is a law stating you must book a round trip or you can't use them to get back.. we never do and if we can't find someone to share a cab from the hotel have called them without issue.

I would also point out to read the notice on the rez you received from Worldmark about the airport poachers; you really need to focus on being alert and walking straight out of the airport once you get the green light.

Hello everyone,

It's been a year since I've actively participated on this forum, I couldn't remember my password or the email account I used so I just created a new ID. My old ID was Denbo.

I have been to the WM Cabo resort every year (just like Bill) for years and love it! Over the years I've created a travel document that I update each year. The document has everything from maps, airport and transportation tips and reviews of restaurants and activities. If you want a copy send me an email here and I'll send it to you.

Looking forward to reading through the posts since and adding a few during our trip the week of Feb 10th - 19th.

Dennis (Denbo)

Wildflower,

These are questions that should traditionally be answered by Owner Care. Though before calling, I would encourage you to look at the season that was assigned to the date you are traveling. This may answer your question. While the cost of credits cannot change, nor can the number of nights in each season, it is true that the dates for which each season is assigned can fluctuate from year to year.
