... sand. Surrounded by the Pacific ocean on the west , and sea of Cortez from around the harbour entrance to the East.
The Condos where we are staying, are located are on a private beach, and we step out onto the sand with the pounding surf just 100yards from our covered terrace. Temp today was 33 degrees, so a welcome swim in one of the 3 pools when we returned on foot from walking to the marina and back this afternoon after ...
... It was a sunset cruise turned party boat! Lots of fun! Another day is Cabo saw us laying on the beach and soaking up the rays. And then lying by the pool and a some swimming for pretty much the entire day. We need some sun... We are white as. Enjoying the 28/29 degrees. Considering it is winter over here anything warmer then 20 is divine for us. The sun here in cabo is warming us up just fine I hope Miami is just as good... Fingers crossed! An awesome few days in Cabo! A ...
After 3 days and 1000 miles, I finally reached the tip of the Baja California Peninsula – Cabo San Lucas.
I wasn't really sure what to expect, but knew it had some bad ass arch to mark Lands End so wanted to go see that, whilst spending a bit of time on a beach… kind of important as it was too hot and humid to do anything else. And this (33 Degrees average) was in autumn – think I would actually die in the summer.
So first ...
... all expectations when he failed his landing and backflipped OFF the stage, finding himself in a heap on the sand. Hilarious.
Los Cabos has so much to offer and I’m definitely going to recommend my parents to come here one day. Quick breakdown of the highlights for those who took one look at the length of this blog and decided to just enjoy the pictures…

The great thing about cruising is that you can wake up somewhere different everyday. Yesterday I woke up on the floor of the Officers mess and today I woke up on top of the canopy of the bandstand in explorers lounge!!!
We’ve had 2 full days at sea sailing down the West Coast of the USA and along the thin Baja California peninsula that starts at the border town of Tijuana and finishes up at our destination for today, Cabo San Lucas.

Historical Traveler Reviews Wyndham Cabo San Lucas Resort
Hard beds, noisy all nite, but is very close to the action!
The Plaza Las Glorias is a nice hotel at first. The beds are hard, very hard. I stayed at a hotel across street also for only $40 per nite and the beds were heaven. But Plaza has an OK pool. Watch out when talking to front desk, they get mean and sarcastic after you stayed there and are leaving. I guess they don't need your money anymore. Silly, silly people! Plaza is a very short walk ( 1-3 blks) to Sammys place, giggling Marlin, and all the action down town. Watch out for wait staff thrusting jello shots at you that you think is free then they charge your party OH, $45 or $5 bucks per. ouch. We said NO and gave them a tip.
I own a time share at the Plaza and have stayed there since 1992. I have had large luxurious rooms and smaller rooms. But, the rooms have always been clean and the staff friendly. I enjoy staying here because it is in close proximity to everything. I prefer not to rent a car in Mexico because I don't want to have to deal with their crazy driving.
In August, my son and I exchanged my time share and were given a 2 bedroom suite which actually consisted of 3 rooms all with balconies.
It was awesome.
Sure the walk is long when you're down at the end, but hey, most of what people do in Cabo is walk, so it's not that big a deal.
You usually don't go to Cabo to stay in your room, so what does it matter if it's not the Ritz. If you're looking for a fancy place, this isn't it. But it's good for hanging out on the balcony watching the sunrise and enjoying watching the locals below.
The only time I had problem with noise was when our room was located above the new salsa bar just west of the lighthouse restaurant. Other than that, it's always been tolerable.
I am surprised to read so many negative reviews as I have stayed at this hotel twice (2003 and previously in 1997) and found it and the staff to be very nice and the vacation enjoyable.
I was dissapointed to learn that we were not informed at check-in either time we stayed here about the free shuttle to Medano Beach.
The room we stayed in was clean, the maid service was efficient and we did have some complimentary bottled water but there were other bottles and items in the refrigerator that were clearly marked that if you consumed, you would pay. I feel the reviews balking this are unfair as this is standard in most hotels nowadays.
Overall, I would rate this hotel on a scale of 1-10 with 10 being the best an 8. The room was nice, the restaurant food was excellent and it is within walking distance to the Marina and all other attractions. It was a great deal.
Beds hard as a rock, ants on my toothbrush, people yelling all night long. If your in cabo to get drunk everyday, and pass out on the floor this is the place for you. If your an airline pilot looking for rest, or bringing your family to have fun, stay far away! Watch out for extra LARGE charges after you leave that keep coming.
My family and I just came home after five days in Cabo, and we will NEVER stay at Plaza Las Glorias again. It was incredibly noisy every night until 4:00 or 5:00 a.m. (spring break punks), and the hotel management did absolutely nothing to quiet them down. Then, during the day, the worst of 70's rock&roll was blasted poolside. When we complained, the managment just shrugged their shoulders... If you like to drink all night long and scream until you are hoarse - this is the place for you and you'll have plenty of company! Also, bring plenty of money. You are charged for EVERYTHING in your room - coffee, water, maid service. Check your bill carefully! Skip the hotel restaurant, unless you have no taste buds and a big fat wallet. The only deal was the $1.00 tacos by the pool at lunch.One positive experience was dinner at Puerto Viejo, which is ironically on the same property but owned by someone else (Thank God). Very delicious and reasonable; we recommend it highly.We booked this vacation through SunTrips, and our flight was TEN HOURS LATE. Our compensation was $10.00 worth of breakfast and lunch food at the airport cafeteria. We will not be booking vacations through SunTrips as well. Although we liked Cabo, it was a relief to get back to REASONABLY priced Monterey.
Plaza Las Glorias is right on the marina in Los Cabos, Mx. Whale watching, dinner cruises and a wide variety of deep sea fishing boats, water taxis and other water craft were available all day within easy walking distances. No beach on site but the property offered a free shuttle to Medano Beach. The accomodations included a queen bed and mini kitchen with a microwave. Purified water is used throughout the property. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a dining area as well as space around the bed. The balcony offered a beautiful view of the luxury yachts at the marina.
Next time, we'll stay somewhere else
Stayed at PLG first week of March 03, and found that overall it was disappointing -- it's generally run down and the rooms are about what you would expect in the states for $30 a night -- bare light bulbs, less than clean, slow/non-flowing drains, etc. Really in need of a face-lift and some cleaning. The location is close to town, which is great for going to clubs or to eat, but the trade-off is that you are in a marina and need to catch a shuttle to even see a beach. The hotel staff was generally pleasent, but be careful of anything that is in your room; bottles of water, coffe, etc -- they will surprise you with a charge for it when you checkout! Bottom line, if you are 18 and want to party every night and don't care where you sleep, probably ok if you can get it cheap, otherwise you will probably wished you had stayed elsewhere.
The Time of My life
Plaza Las Glorias was the site of the greatest collection of frat guys experiencing the pleasures of Spring Break. They allowed us to party till the brink of dawn with very well endowed local women. Plaza Las Glorias creeated a verry romantic backdrop for the many spring break experiences that me and my friends had. If you want to let lose, PLG is the place.
I was so looking forward to a quick escape. The Plaza "Not So" Glorious nearly ruined my vacation.
The room was a studio size. I was contantly bumping into my travel companion.
I asked repeatedly for a carafe for the coffee maker. No luck there. I played musical cups with the coffee cups. This wasn't a problem until I accidently spilled the coffee on the floor and used one of the towels to clean it up. After spending the day on the beach and returning to our dirty room, again no problem, we were greeting with a note slipped under the door directing us to report to the front desk. After reporting to the front desk, we were informed they would be charging us for the cleaning of the towel. I inquired as to the cost, and the clerk paused a few seconds and blurted out, "oh, ten dolla". I was appalled. I took the towel and informed the clerk I would bleach it myself.
After much pleading, we were finally able to speak to the general manager. We expressed our displeasure and he apologized profusely. We were moved to a much nicer room and the staff cleaned the towel, free of charge.
The pool is tiny, tiny, tiny. If you would like to spend anytime on the beach, you will need to take a shuttle boat. There are no grounds to admire. The hotel is in the middle of the Marina.
The only plus to staying at this awful place is that it's close to town. Should I ever return, I will elect to stay at a "real" hotel and taxi into town.
Great Location, But Beware
I recently stayed at the Plaza Las Glorias in Cabo San Lucas. The location is right on the marina and within walking distance to most of the major restaurants. My only complaint is that this place is vast, and if you get a room far (and I mean far) from the hotel entrance be prepared for a very extensive walk everytime you leave your room. The emergency stairways were useless because the gates were locked at the exits and after several complaints to the front desk we were told they could do nothing and suggested we "write the management" regarding the problem.
In all fairness, the rooms at Plaza Las Glorias seemed to be well kept, were not luxurious but charming in an "old Mexico" style. They also had beautiful views out over the marina. Be careful where they place you if you are not prepared to walk long distances.
