Just got back to Colorado yesterday.

So wifi is poor at best through out the resort as they have been having problems. You can access it for free in the lobby in front of the activity desk. We would see several people sitting on the little sofa daily.

with smart phones and ipads you cannot hook up in the rooms unless you have an Ethernet connection plug on your device or and adapter (i-pad. All that is supplied is the cable. it was stored in the closet and the router is behind the sofa.


Sardinia's didn't reach to phase 3 but worked great in their restaurant. Mama Mia's didn't know their code so no connection by the pool.

Anyway no big deal. I didn't miss it much.

Oh well, we've been there and are back home. Now looking forward to our next trip down there smile Met Nora and her husband while there. We did go to the Art Walk, but our cooking class at the farm on Saturday started at 11 am and we didn't get back to the resort until between 6 and 7 pm so missed the market. Had a great time!

Hi Beth,
The Organic Market is on Saturday. It has been great this year, lots of artsy things, great produce and seafood available. You should for sure check it out. We are at the resort until April 9/13

Hello. My first post. Have thoroughly enjoyed other posts for years.

We are returning to Coral Baja on April 30th, 2013 for 9 nights. This time however, we will be accompanied by our 2o year old son and also perhaps with our 18 year old son. They have invited friends to accompany them, however their schedules are not as yet known.

So, what we are wondering is if any of you will have young adults present there as well at the same time?

Thank you, the Dhaliwal Family

Sardinia Cantina had a pretty strong wifi signal we could access from Phase 3 last year if that helps.

It would then, i suppose... Phase three is a long way from the lobby signal to reach. Perhaps they have installed wireless modems in the buildings now?

Thanks for the update.

Is there wireless signal in the rooms? I realize there is Ethernet cable connection but with an i-pad that wont work. Has anyone used an i-pad and where did they pick up wireless signal? Thanks!

Could you post specific information about how you rented a car for $150.00. Who did you rent through? What credit card covered the insurance? We have not been able to get it that cheap, and they always make us pay the insurance before we can take the car. How did you do it? Also, where it the glass factory?

Thank you. We have a cooking class at a local farm on Saturday, so we'll have to see if we can make it.

I'm leaving my room # at the front desk for Nora so we can connect when they arrive. When will you be down there? Maybe we could get together at the pool and talk?

[b][/b]I have not stayed at the Wyndham Ocean Ridge, but I have stayed at several Wyndham resorts. Of course each resort can be different, but we've found the Wyndham resorts are on par or slightly nicer than WorldMark resorts.

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.
