It is an easy 20 minute drive on the top road from the airport to CB.
Take a day and go to Todo Santos. The car opens up several places to go and see.

We have been to Coral Baja 2 or 3 times and airport is just a few miles (10 at the most) from the hotel at Coral Baja. We have never needed a vehicle as the hotel flags taxis for you and we golfed and went fishing out of San Lucas (big shopping center there also). It is like $10 for a ride in hotel shuttle from airport. Unless you plan on driving inland away from the cities you probably don't need a vehicle. Great restaurant right on the property and a beautiful beach (not for swimming though). Also a nice pool on site. Store about 3/4 mile up the road (East) to get groceries, water, etc. It has a small "gym" with about 4 machines as I recall. I caught a Mahi-Mahi off coast of San Lucas last time and brought 1/4 of it (filled by captain) back to the hotel and the restaurant marinated it for 3 hours and the best fish I have ever had.

We will be arriving April 14, 2018. Do you have any recommendations for transfers from the airport? Also, we may decide to do a one day rental car and want to know if that is still available at the resort. Any other information you wish to share would be great.

Thank You

Rolmike

My wife and I always rent a small car. When comparing airport shuttles round trip and taxi rides into town, the price is comparable. Nearly every trip we take a day trip someplace and the car allows us to have the freedom to do so.

Arriving this March 20-27and I'm looking into rental cars now.

I have done both drive and did the bus
. There is a grocery store that is walking distance and you can take a cab back to the resort with you groceries. the buses are easy. If you want to do outings, usually they will pick you up for the event and bring you back.

We did rent a car cause it's nice to have one available, but the taxis are great. We probably wouldn't rent one next time - or only for a couple days.

hello fellow Worldmark owners. We are heading to Cabos for the first time as new owners so looking for hints about this resort with the following questions? is it better to rent a car from the resort rather than from a rental car agency in town, especially for one or two days? How far is the resort from Cabos and it is easy to take buses to and from the resort if you want to go into town? How far is the nearest grocery outlet and is are there scooters available to rent anywhere as we could not find this type of transporation available anywhere on any website?
thanks
Brent

We've been going to Baja Sur since 1994 and have enjoyed the area very much. Recently there has been a lot of violence there between Cartels and Baja Sur now has the highest murder rate in all of Mexico. What is being done by WM Management to ensure we are safe and what are they doing to stress the importance to government officials to clean up the mess?

For those if you that take umbrellas and chaos into the grass For the day... please return them to the pool area. Have you seen those poor girls trying to put the umbrella back? We are owners and we should be picking up after ourselves.

I have not ever sent a review for any of the world Mark properties, but I have to say Coral Baja is the best I have ever stayed at,the whole property was very well maintained, not that I've been disappointed at any of the resorts we have stayed at.. We Just got back last night after a 11 night stay. They were continually cleaning all the areas especially the pool area. There is plenty of pool chairs, I noticed someone complained about that last year but I assure you there was plenty, they must have added some. The Mama Mia restaurant has good food, and each night except Sunday night there was some kind of entertainment. The view of the beach is beautiful. We had a 1 bedroom deluxe, it was very nice. The personnel was great, and the actives person was very helpful, I wish I could remember his name. I highly recommend the all day laPaz snorkeling trip, if you rent a car do it at the resort you won't get ripped off like we did. Made a mistake and got the car close to airport....you won't be disappointed if you stay there....

The 1 bedroom deluxe is larger and has a drop down Murphy bed and non sleeper sofa and two doors for the bathroom. The 1 bedroom is smaller and has a sleeper sofa without a Murphy bed.

The main difference is that the deluxe has 2 doors into the bathroom - from the bedroom and the hallway.

I have been here for a week. Although I read the post and article I have found cabo to be safe and no issues. I am having a good time and even rented a car to get around.

I just spent 40 days at Coral Baja and came home Feb. 15th. Coral Baja is my favorite WM resort. It's different because people mingle and socialize there unlike other WM resorts. Many like myself become friends from these meetings and meet annually there at Coral. All of the staff at Coral Baja is the best….! This particular WM resort is managed by an outside company and I have to say, it has to be the cleanest WM resort Worldmark has.
In November, I became aware of this issue of the drug kingpin, El Chapo being sent to the United States to serve his sentence. This has left a vacuum on who is going to run that empire. The rumor is there is two gangs vying for Baja and San Jose del Cabo. The violence in November made the newspapers http://www.borderlandbeat.com/…/bloody-dawn-in-san-jose-del…. The rumor is the local government switch alliances and the war started. I knew before I left for SJD, there had been some murders and violence. Last year, the turf war was isolated to La Paz. Now, killings have been going on in and around Los Cabos at a faster pace. All the cities along Baja have experienced recent cartel violence and San Jose del Cabo has gone from a very peaceful place to some troubling times. The link below is in Spanish but if you copy and paste it into Google translate, you can see that there has been a number of murders (44 murders in 48 days) in San Jose (many in the hotel row area) this year (http://www.metropolimx.com/…/44-muertos-en-48-dias-en-los-c…). Right now, there is a heavy military presence in San Jose up to Los Barilles. Numerous check points are set up randomly to apparently try to catch bad guys off guard. When I was there at Coral, there were two "incidents" too close to home. There was an execution at the Mega (Now called La Comer) where a person was executed. I heard one of the killers was shot and killed at Mega and the other was run down and shot in the park playground below Mega. This caused a huge traffic jam for hours as the military rolled in. About a week ago, I tried to enter Walmart’s underground garage and was turned away by police. I later learned someone had been executed there. For the first time ever, I have seen patrols of military walk the beach armed with automatic weapons in front of Coral Baja. Today, I got a message from my brother who is staying at Coral Baja right now that automatic gunfire could be heard over by Zippers and the returno this morning. No word yet on casualties. There definitely is a turf war going on down there. As far as I know, no tourists have been killed.
There is a tremendous amount of building going on in the Cabo corridor between San Jose and Cabo San Lucas. I cannot imagine the impact this turf war will have on the tourist industry if this war continues.

Just returned after 16 days there. After several years there we are getting tired of the almost non-stop music or entertainment. The view is fantastic, but we are going elsewhere from now on to get a more peaceful winter vacation.

Is there still construction going on at the Resort? Some past comments mentioned construction. Our trip isn't until the end of May, so I am hoping that we miss it if there is still some going on.

Hi Jfair70,
we have been to CB many times over the years and have experience with the rental car madness.
1) if you look online you will see some really cheap rates. Don't be fooled! you will be tagged with mandatory insurance fees at the counter that are anywhere from $30-$50 per day.
2) if you want to rent at the airport, Cactus rent a car is all inclusive. for $40 per day you can get a Jetta sized vehicle.
3) you can catch a shuttle which i think is around $20 per person each way to the resort. Call the resort to make arrangements
4) once at the resort you can rent a car from the onsite car rental. For $60 per day you can get a compact car. that way you only rent when you want to.
5) Wherever you rent, mark all scratches , dents and glass issues on the walkthrough document...just to CYA.
6) you can take a bus into Cabo for around $2 each way. the bus stop is across the street and a little up the road from the resort.
7) Taxis can get expensive $25-$30 each way into cabo . Minimum $5 each way to the grocery store or restaurants

this is one of our favorite resorts. Just went at the beginning of January and heading there again in May/june.
exchange rate was 21 pesos to the $ when using our no foreign exchange fee credit card. Costco accepts all cards in mexico , not just Visa.
There is also a grocery store about 6 blocks away from the resort.

Have fun

BTW if you want a free rental car, sign up for a time share spiel. hold out for at least $300 value and avoid Grand Mayan at all costs. Not for the faint of heart.....and do not buy one no matter how good it sounds. Also, if you decide to do one, don't give them any Deposit up front.

Also, also take plenty of $1 (20 pesos) bills for tip money.
