It is a battle throught the airport as you fight off timeshare offers. Now you have to do it at the resort. With the same verocity as those at the airport, the concieres desk attacks, pushes, and won't take no for an answer. The conciere could be such a help, but beware. Their motives are slimly vailed timeshare sales approaches.

Hi we will be traveling to cabo at the end of April 2011. All the information here is great. We are currently in the process of getting our passports which are pretty expensive. My question is, Are passports required to travel from the US to Mexico?

RENTING A CAR: definitely rent the car before going; it will be significantly less expensive when done from the U.S.
Insurance issues to be aware of:
1. you need Mexican 3rd party liability insurance--and will
be required to buy it. It covers damage you do to
others or their property; it does not cover the
vehicle. Mexican police do not care if the vehicle is
insured or not; they do care about 3rd party liability.
3rd party liability insurance will cost you $7.00-$10.00
a day, depending on the company you rent from (AVIS
includes the cost of 3rd party liability in their quote;
others do not).
2. Insurance on the vehicle costs about $20.00 a day from
the rental company. The insurance on your credit card
costs nothing and becomes primary in Mexico (CALL
CUSTOMER SERVICE FOR YOUR CARD TO BE CERTAIN YOUR CARD
INCLUDES THE INSURANCE).
a. some people like the no-cost feature and like
having Visa/Mastercard behind them if there is a
problem.
b. some people prefer knowing it will be handled
locally with no questions asked.
This is a personal decision--depends on what feels
right to you.

No matter what you do about insurance, you'll save money on the basic rate if you rent from the U.S.; shop on line.

If you really want to save money, you can endure a time-share presentation and probably get the rental for nothing.

They do offer money exchange. When we exchanged, we did smaller bills but when we needed $100, we gave them $20 bills.

I don't know whether they do or not, and no doubt, someone who is there will tell you. However, I do know that Mexican law has changed regarding the amount of money that can be exchanged (in an attempt to stop some of the money laundering done by dealers in drugs/guns/people). Some establishments are taking the law very seriously; some...not so much. Do not be surprised if you cannot exchange $100.00 bills; those are much more difficult for the Mexican company turning in their money to a Mexican bank. Generally speaking, American companies, such as Costco, are continuing to take American money. In Rosarito, some small restaurants are accepting only pesos; others are still accepting dollars just as they were before the new law. To be safe, I would avoid large denomination American bills, and don't be surprised if you find some differences from 2009.

Go to http://www.tripadvisor.com. Click on forums. Click on Mexico. Click on Baja Califoria.

It's people reporting back on visits, asking questions, getting in touch with specific people who answer questions all the time. Those who answer questions either live there or for years have been visiting several times a year.

Of course, lots of people ask questions about safety. Do a search for safety and you'll find many threads and the replies. The answers come down to "Yes, Cabo is safe."

You'll get lists of restaurants/things to do/places to go/etc. from people who have been there many, many times.

We were there in Nov and had no problem what so ever. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The people are friendly.

We have a two-bedroom penthouse booked for the end of July and are concerned about the safety in Mexico. What are your thoughts? Thanks!

Can anyone tell me the closest place to buy liquor, beer, & wine when first arriving? When we were there 10 years ago there was a small liquor store right up by the highway. Is it still there or will we have to make a trip to MEGA? Thanks.

About 9 miles. It's about 30 miles from the airport to Cabo San Lucas.

The problem with renting on-property is you probably will not have arranged the rental beforehand, in the U.S., and you'll pay considerably more for it. Renting a day or two this way may cost nearly as much as a week arranged before hand. We've always gotten our economy cars for around $135.00 a week by doing it ahead of time and letting our credit card insurance cover the insurance on the vehicle.

In addition, renting at the airport takes care of transportation to/from the resort, which also contributes to the savings on the rental.

Has anyone gotten their groceries delivered by this company. Sounds like a great deal to have them deliver your groceries for you. Just wanted to make sure other people have not had problems.
Thanks!!!

Hey Cabo Bill:
We met at two years ago annual meeting in Bellevue with CarolAnn. It has been 11 years since we visited Coral Baja, but Hubby and I are bringing 5 guests from March 1 to 15 , 2011.

A couple of questions from the expert:
a) - best way to get from airport to Coral Baja?
b) do you know if "ENCORE" is still a viable snorkle trip?

John will turn 63 on this trip, we have both retired now,
please answer?

Thanks

I'm heading to Coral Baja next month and I hear the pool is not heated. What is the temp of the pool in Feb, does anyone know? Will it be warm enough to swim in if it's only high 70's outside? Thanks!

As a quick summary of the rental car situation, I can say
1. shop for and rent the car on line from the U.S., not after you get there; you'll save a lot.
2. There are two kinds of insurance:
a. insurance on the vehicle itself (which can be
covered by the insurance from your credit card--
call customer service to be certain--at no cost
to you, or it can be covered by cuying the insurance
from the car rental company for about $20.00 a day.)
b. Mexican 3rd party liability insurance--which you
must buy from the car rental company. It's $7.00-
$12.00 a day, depending on the company you rent
from. It covers damage you cause to others or
their property. It's the only insurance Mexican
police care about, AND YOU MUST HAVE IT.
3. Avis includes the cost of 3rd party liability insurance
in the price they quote you. I know of no others that
do (with the possible exception of Alamo--check), so
when comparing the Avis quote with others, add $7.00-
$12.00 a day to the other company's quotes to make
them comparable (and this MAY apply to Alamo also--
don't know).
4. You'll find an economy car quite inexpensive--but it may not hold everyone and their luggage.

Check http://www.tripadvisor.com
Go to the forum section, then Baja. You'll find tons of information from people who live in Cabo and from people who make multiple trips every year--more information than you can imagine. (Do a search once you get to the Baja forum for "car rental.")

We will be going to Cabo for the first time in February and were wondering about renting a car to travel around. There will be 4 of us going so thought it would be less expensive to rent a car than using a cab every time.

Can anyone tell us the best place and price for getting a rental car?

Thank You so much for your help.

What night is Fiesta night at Coral Baja? We will be there Jan. 25th thru Feb. 4th. Could the resort post an up to date activity schedule for the week?

I'm not sure what packet you're talking about, but I received a packet from another owner a couple of years ago. I believe his login was Denbo, but you could find it in past postings. I received my packet through email.
