Just got back from the Coral Baja yesterday. We used Grayline for transportion. $28 round trip per person. The resort can set up transportation also. $24 I used my Visa card for 95% of everything. You get the best exchange rate. I also used my ATM card for cash. Again the best exchange rate. We didn't rent a car. Walk to teh store and take a cab back for 50 pasos. The bus to Cabo is 27 pasos one way. You will enjoy teh resort. We were there 10 years ago and a lot of things have changed. We plan on making this a year trip. One of te top 5 resorts in World Mark

Sorry I didn't answer sooner, but we've been cruising on the east coast and I didn'yt see your post. Hopefully, you noticed the Rosarito forum and read some of the posts there. Rosarito is safe; we live in Rosarito and love it. The news reports you see report things that have happened and they are true--but Mexico is a big country. There's no way you'd stay away from visiting the Grand Canyon in Arizona because of border incidents in El Paso--and that's what you're looking at. Juarez is across the border from El Paso--that's a long way from Rosarito. By the same token, the murder rate is New Orleans is higher than the murder rate in Tijuana--but American tourists continue to rush to New Orleans even though the city itself is really not very safe. Take the news reports for what they are: really playing up the violence in Mexico; if they did that for the U.S., none of us would ever go anywhere!

I am taking my two granddaughters for a return trip to Cabo. Last June, the activities director, Victor, made the stay really remarkable and fun for everyone but especially for kids. Does anyone know if he is still there?

I would get the 2 br. The one bedroom would be cramped.
Most front buildings have veiws unless you get behind Mama Mia bld, anyway the kids could have their own bedroom. They also have murphy beds in the front room if needed.

Iam planning our first Cabo trip for next year. The choices I have left for rooms are as follows: 1 BR Deluxe, 2 BR King Bed and 2 BR Front Bldg. Unfortunately, there are no more 2 BR Penthouses available. Which has the best view that will accomodate 2 adults and 2 teenage kids? Thanks.

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.

Does the resort still offer money exchange. When we were there in 2009 they did. Thanks

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!
