    I don't mean to sound like a wimp, but how challenging is driving the highways and roads between Cabo San Lucas and la Paz?

    It is MUCH better than it used to be with the brand new highway between Cabo and Todos Santos! The locals drive way too fast and you have to watch our for cows on the road, but that is probably the biggest challenges if you take the Todos Santos way! The mountain pass on the East coast is another story; that route has very narrow roads through the mountains and it can be difficult. I do not recommend driving either at night, as the lighting isn't great and you could easily run into a cow! almost 4 years ago

    Staying in Todos Santos late August to early September. How rainy is it? What things are there to do in and around the area?

    Todos Santos is a quiet town known for it's art community. There are tons of great galleries. Cerritos beach is one of my favorites, but you will need a car to get there. There is a place outside of Todos Santos called Art & Beer; funky little place with the best bloody mary's you will ever have (and they sell some great photography art). Lastly, Cafe Santa Fe is the best restaurant in Todos Santos. Excellent Italian food! Hope this information is helpful! about 4 years ago

    Searching for a safe and secure hostel in Mexico

    Hi Daniel, El Encanto Inn, Tropicana or Casa Natalia are great options for backpackers in San Jose del Cabo. They all have private rooms and are located near the town square and should have internet (El Encanto is the only one I am unsure about). If not, internet cafes are all over the town. San Jose is extremely safer (safer than most US cities). Have a great time! If you want excellent taco's go to Rossy's (only about $2 each and incredible)! Julie - Cabovillas.com over 5 years ago

    Going to cabo next week, I'm thinking I need a few pesos. Credit cards are readily accepted aren't?

    U.S. dollars are accepted nearly everywhere in Los Cabos. Once your dollars are changed to Mexican pesos, they cannot easily be changed back, so exchange only what you need. If you travel out of the tourist areas, it’s a good idea to have pesos on hand. The best rates of exchange for pesos can be found at banks. The airport exchange is usually reasonable, particularly when compared to hotel rates. Street exchange booths offer less favorable rates than banks, but keep longer hours. Since exchange rates fluctuate daily, it’s better to exchange small amounts at a time. NOTE: New regulations passed by the Mexican government went into effect on September 14, 2010 tightening the use of American cash dollars (USD) while in Mexico. Businesses may only accept a maximum of $100 USD CASH per transaction, certain businesses may not accept dollars for any purchases, and hotel and exchange booths will only be allowed to exchange $1,500 per month into Mexican Pesos. The use of credit cards, traveler’s checks, Mexican pesos and other foreign currencies are not affected. Most banks have ATM machines for after-hours cash. Use ATM machines with caution, just as you would at home. Check with your US bank prior to your arrival in Mexico to find out if they have a Mexican affiliate bank you can use while in Cabo. By using the affiliate banks, you can save money on ATM withdrawal fees. Many stand-alone ATMs around Cabo can carry hefty fees and we do not recommend using them. over 5 years ago

    Looking for car service recommendation in Cabos San Lucas to go from airport to One and Only.

    Taxi service at the airport can be very confusing. I highly suggest that you pre-arrange private transportation and have a driver waiting. One and Only also provides this service as a guest of the hotel. You definitely should check with them. Otherwise, I can assist you in making transfer reservations. The details can be found at http://www.cabovillas.com/transportation.asp. Good luck and have a WONDERFUL time at the One and Only (my personal favorite hotel). almost 6 years ago

    Some top tips for roadtrip in Baja, Mexico

    I have a few tips for you! Cataviña is a great place to stop in Baja - It is surrounded by some fascinating country, the Desierto Central de Baja California, Baja's unique Central Desert. Much of the desert is under legal protection, to preserve its biological treasures. Hundreds of species of cactus live here, many of them found nowhere else. The Mission in Loreto is a must see! As are the cave paintings in Loreto. Right after Loreto before you cross over to Constitucion and Insurgentes there are two little coves...I can't find the names of them though, but you can't miss them...they have little palapas on both beaches where you can enjoy a lovely lunch of chocolate clams right out of the water for lunch Also there's the church built by Eiffel in Santa Rosalia...it's pretty cool. The area where the highway passes the town looks pretty rustic, but once you turn to go downtown it's very cute. Hope this helps! almost 6 years ago
