We love the convenience of having a car. The road (and there is only one except for those actually in the towns) is a 4 lane divided highway--driving isn't a problem.

We've rented for $150.00 a week (many times less). By the time you figure going to and from the airport and a couple of times into town plus a day trip or two, you've more than paid for the car, and the convenience is wonderful. You can shop for groceries easily, go to out of the way restaurants and not be limited to those on "the tourist drag," leave when you want to and come home when you want to.

There are public buses which are cheap, but obviously, you travel on their schedule. There are no buses for day trips.

Anyway, for us, having a car is a no-brainer.

We were in Cabo two years ago. We signed up for the time share presentation so we got our ride to and from the airport for free. But from the list of prices, taxi seems to be cheaper if you go with a big group or you can pay for shuttle. The taxi ride back from the resort to the airport was much cheaper.

P.S. If you are not planning to rent a car then be prepare to spend money on taxi rides from the resort to downtown cabo. The resort is about 30 minutes from downtown cabo and it was $70 round trip for us back then. Nothing much to do in downtown san jose del cabo.

There are several local buses that run all day to about 9 pm.. Green ones, blue ones and red ones. They are the smaller buses not the fancy Greyhound looking ones.It's 20 miles from CB to Cabo and the buses stop a lot. Maybe 30 mins each way......We think it's fun to ride them. Cheap transportaion. When you get to Cabo they let you off on a side street across from the Mall. When you return, you have to walk up the main road, north(coming out of the mall it's to your right) about 800 feet and you will see people waiting for the bus. When you are coming back, look for La Jolla and CB will be just past it , yell out Coral Baja and the driver will stop....Try to have the correct pesos for each way, it's much easier than trying to figure it out on thethe bus.>>>>>>>Have fun!

Loretta,

Phase 2 is the back building by the highway. All units you book are facing the pool and ocean UNLESS you specifically book a two bedroom back building unit.

One bedroom delux is not much larger but has entrances to the bathroom from the bedroom and the hallway. If someone is sleeping on the Murphy bed in the living room it gives everyone more privacy, if not, it doesn't really matter.

John

would like to book Coral Baja, but have a few questions:

What is the difference between a 1 bedroom and one bedroom deluxe?

Is the deluxe worth the extra points?

A friend said stay in the rooms by the pool, not in the back on the street, but how do you pick that?

she also mentioned phase 1 phase 2 and phase 3 - she said phase 3 is on the street in the back and worldmark said this is the one by the pool ????

Help - please

Planning to go to Cabo in 2012. This will be the second WM resort I have visited, so I am still very much a newbie. I've read posts indicating that there is a public bus that runs from WMCB to Cabo San Lucas. Can anyone share the amount of travel time it takes to get there by bus and the hours the bus is in service (24hrs?, 8am-1am? etc. Thanks.

Noah-- There's plenty of info in the "restaurants" thread about the Cabo/ San Jose area. Very generally speaking, the more recent the suggestion/review, the more accurate. Of course, there are many long-running restaurants/bars all over the place---- in Cabo, San Jose, AND in between----. There's LOTS of good (and cheap!) places among them! We most always eat maybe half of our meals in the room. Large and really good stores (Costco, Mega, Walmart (?), etc) have great meats, fish, produce, refreshments, and the rest. But DO treat yourself to at least a few trips to the local restaurants!!!!!! The setting, service, freshness, quality, (and even the prices!-- at some), are fantastic and unforgettable. We prefer some of the places around San Jose over Cabo proper. I'll quickly reccommend dinner at Cynthia's (look for the carrot!), Zipper's (walking distance from the resort), and/or ANY small taco stand that looks "busy", the place right out front of the resort, (name escapes me), and of course, maybe a beer or three on the top deck at Shooters. Have a BLAST! We have to wait till May '12. PS----- CaboBill, are you out there/ How ya doin??????........... the Coach.

I appreciate CHEAP. Some ideas: We have always done well by buying groceries at Mega - walking there and taking a cab back with our groceries for $5.00. Buy your drinks there also. Price and quality is really very good. Cook in room and on the grills. We hit Happy Hour several times a week at the pool but that's it. Take the Worldmark presentation that they push pretty hard and hold out for $75 resort credit. Put that towards a credit on your account and eat at Mama Mia's several times. Several restaurants downtown are authentic, great and very reasonable. El Guacamaya and Taco Rossy's come to mind. For a really nice meal without breaking the bank, walk down to Zipper's. Enjoy your stay.

Cabo is known for good food--and definitely, your best meals (both in taste and price) will be off-resort.

The resort wrote me back and I gave them the confirmation numbers of our two units. They wrote back and said they would do there best to place as close as possible. It may take a few days but they do repond to your questions. One spa will be down the first week of Oct according to Worldmark info. Hope to see you there.

I would like a copy of DENBO's vacation packet (gootaz@cs.com). Also noticed that the link for Translife Cabo—Airport Shuttle and Tour Guide does not work. Is this still a valid company to use? What are the other current options.

You can write the resort and give them your confirmation #'s and tell them that you need two units close. Sometimes calling the worldmark office they can reley messages. I understand that one of the pools and one spa is under construction during those last weeks as we are coming down also. That might be info to check on also.
cbresort@nautilius.org.mx is email address of resort

Hi-you've probably answered this somewhere already, but I'm gonna ask anyways! ;-)
My husband and I are coming down with our 1 year old son at the end of September for our 10 yr anniversary, and I'm wondering what kind of baby amenities you guys have. Do you provide cribs/pack n plays? Are there beach toys we can check out for the day? Do you guys have beach umbrella/chairs we can check out?

Also, we've booked 2 rooms-one for our friend who's babysitting for us...how do we request to have the rooms near each other?

Thank you so much!

We were at Coral Baja in May. We booked a one way trip from the airport to CB with Translife Cabo. We just used their link on the Coral Baja resort gallery page. $12/per person one way. Great service and NO WAITING at the airport. We took a cab from the resort back to the airport for $25 total for up to 4 people. Definitely the way to go!

We ended up using Cabo-shuttle.com instead of TransCabo. I figured out that's who we used last time and they seem to be the cheapest I could find. $48 + 2.5% fee for using a Visa to pay for two people round trip. They were extremely reliable last year.

We are going to Coral Baja end of Sept. Cielto Lindo gave us a quote of $136 RT for three adults. Go on
TripAdvisor and the Baja website forum. It has all kind of great info.

We used Trans Cabo and were very happy with them. You need to make arrangements before you arrive. I don't have the wesite but you can google it.

We are headed back to Coral Baja next month and was curious as to what shuttle everyone is using to get to and from the airport? We used one last time (I can't remember the name of the company) and it was approx. $40/$50 for two people.

Is there anything a bit cheaper out there?

Thanks!

Thanks for your question also. Hopefully someone will answer us. I did see on the TripAdvisor forum that a group of four just came back and stayed at Coral Baja and had a great time. I did receive an email back from Coral regarding money exchange and US$. Most are still taking US, but if you exchange they want a copy of your Photo ID, Passport. Be careful we had this problem last yr in PV.

I have the same question...I have not been to Coral Baja since 2004 and will be going back this Nov. Drove by every year since and saw some changes on the outside but have anything changed/upgrades in the rooms or anything?

Having a Hep vaccine is a very good idea. I had already had B for work so only got A but rest of my family got A/B combo. My doctor also said to make sure Tetanus is up to date. Cabo is very clean, particularly for Mexico!
