    Great vacation spot in Mexico. Unfortunately the prices are adjusted for US tourism. But still a good deal. Numerous resorts and restaurants. Beware the time share sharks at the airport.

    San Jose del Cabo

    39 reviews

    San Jose del Cabo is okay to stay if you are on a budget. For some odd reason this place has a foul kind of smell when I was at their beach. Maybe because it is the horseback riding that was near by or just the place in general. Overall, my stay was here was decent. I can't stay much ...

    Famous border town in Mexico. Gotta love the lobster tacos. I'm not one for poverty tourism, but this is a fun, hip place.

    Puerto Morelos

    7 reviews

    Puerto Morelos is kinda like what the Big Island is to hawaii. It is touristy enough to draw visitors, but it remains small and quaint enough that it has not become a spring break destination. The town is entertaining at night and the beaches are great 24 hours a day.

    The heart of town is next to the cruise ship port. Walk the main street one block next to the main road. A lot of food, hotel, bars, strip joints, n typical souvenir shopping. Go to the roadside food carts for $1 oysters or fish tacos. Delicious!

    Todos Santos is a charming town about 40 minutes north of Cabo (note, that means 2 hours drive from the airport). The town itself is only a few blocks by a few blocks, but it's chock full of galleries, little shops, and charming old buildings. It's slow and sleepy, and the locals say "9pm is Todos Santos' midnight". It's a ...
