Travel Blogs from Cabo San Lucas
Mexico - West Coast 18th May - 23rd May Days 110 - 115 Jon and I travelled to the Mexican Baja Peninsula for one purpose only, to dive with Hamerhead sharks. The waters off the Baja peninsula are renowned for the big stuff, so we spent a few days travelling down to Cabo San Lucas (US vacation central) in the hope of booking onto a dive trip to see …
... Jamie munching on French fries at Bubba Gumps who had Wi-Fi. Unfortunately I had zero luck getting a signal so my blog remains in draft mode only at this time.
Back on board for our 5:00 p.m. photo shoot, we went up to Platinum Studios for what was a great experience. Rachel was a very warm and personable New Zealander that made it so ...
So about 3 boats started early and headed into the night. This leg would consist of two nights and one day. There was no wind so we motored until about 0200 in the morning. Then we sailed for quite awhile during the day. Eventually we had to give that up and motored into the second and last night of the rally and on into Cabo.
As you can tell from the lack of pictures for this leg, the only picture worthy event of the day was ...
... one store that caught our attention as it featured many statues from the Day of the Dead holiday that is celebrated in Mexico. On our journey back to the pier, we passed a gigantic lobster, a lighthouse; a world record sized large marlin, real pelicans, a gigantic frog climbing over a building towards us, and an Aztec Warrior. It was not an uneventful walk.
In the midafternoon, we arrived back on the pier and boarded our tender back to the ship. We settled ...

Our boat had a glass bottom. The guide (minus all those three characteristics mentioned above!!) threw some water on the glass to clean it and pointed to some fish. The water was rather murky due to the amount of activity in the bay today so we soon turned our attention to the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Mar de Cortez Cabo San Lucas
The Mardi is great!
Right downtown Cabo. Very cheap, short walk to the beach, restaurants and shopping down the street. Staff is very friendly and nice.If you not looking for a 'resort', then the Mardi is perfect.Rooms are very basic, but clean(no mini-bars, TV's, or telephones). http://www.#################
Cheap,clean,safe,close to everything!
a block from the beach, close to great restaurants, very clean, cheap, cheap, cheap! a hidden gem!
Great place to stay while in Cabo
Very nice clean hotel. Staff are friendly and helpful. Great location, close to all activities and a walk away from the beaches. I would definately recommend this hotel to my friends.
Relaxed and loved it
what a deal, the french toast is to die for.. would recommend to anyone
Nothing fancy, but neat and clean, and conveniently located - - no taxi required. On site restaurant is excellent.
This hotel is the best value in Cabo - period!
Perhaps my thoughts are a bit skewed, since the Mar De Cortez is the only place I have ever stayed in Cabo (3 times). But I honestly don't feel the need to look for anyplace else, unless I'm planning a particularly romantic trip. The place can be summed up with three words, "Plain, clean, value". There is some liveliness to the pool, the restraunt is definately tasty, the bar is quite small. The "Mar de" is close to everything except the beach, which requires walking to the Plaza Las Gloria and getting a water taxi, or settling in for a 30 minute walk.One word of caution: there is an "adult establishment" diagonal across the street. When walking the street after dark, don't be suprised to be propositioned occasionally. Consider it part of the flavor of being in Mexico.If you want a luxurious resort right on the beach, this is not the place. But if you want to be in the midst of the dancing, dining, and shopping of Cabo, Mar De Cortez seems to be a good bet.
My favorite !
I have been going for 10 years and I love this hotel ! I have stayed at the other resort hotels in Cabo for 3 times the price and much prefer this one. It is my home at least 3 times a year. Spencers restaurant in the hotel is the best !
Great room for the price..
I stayed in the Hotel Mar de Cortez and the room was very clean and comfortable. There are no tv's or phones in the room. The food in the restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was also very helpful.
Cheap and great
I stayed there in June of 2002 and it was awsome. Very inexpensive. The food was good, it was close to everything, it had a great pool, and the rooms were nice. It wasn't the ritz, but it was great for the price. I would definately recommend it.
Best Kept Secret in Cabo
I went to the Mar de Cortez in December and absolutely loved it! They just opened some new rooms. The food was great. And I especially loved the fact that it has a huge swimming pool. It is within an easy walk of the Marina. No need to get a car. In fact, you can save a lot of money. Rather than spending around $500/night at the beach, stay at the Mar de Cortez for about $50/night. Their new website describes it very well. Go to www.mardecortez.com and see for yourself! As a single woman, I felt perfectly safe there.
