... settled on a price... we ended up saving whopping 33%, two whole dollars, from his original asking price. Satisfied that we had mastered the art of haggling, we left the market, wandered through town and headed back to our home at sea, the Carnival Splendor. Enjoy the photos and videos!

Did you hear about the guy that drowned in his meusli?
He was drawn in by a strong ...
... in the sun!
Day three we ventured to the almighty Wal-Mart where I spent far too much money on beauty products that are three times the price back home! After getting back to the hotel there was nothing left to do except sip on iced drinks poolside. When in Mexico!
On our 4th day in Cabo I experienced one of the greatest moments in my life! We parasailed in the Sea of Cortez, with a view to die for, on a clear Summer's day there was nothing ...
... It was cool, well, it wasn't cool, it was very hot, but it was nice. I tried talking to a lady I found there to see if I could see a priest for confession. Funny that. I said: "priest? Padre?" she said: "no entiendo", or "I don't understand". I thought, odd, I know padre is Spanish for father. So I said it again, she said momentito. He'd be there in a moment. He actually didn't show until right before Mass, so no confession for me. But I was stoked to go to ...
... presentation, but finally we start to make our way to the room. And this is my first view of the ocean:
I love the ocean - nothing calms me more than the water. I made it a point to stay right on the water and have an ocean view from our balcony. Our balcony, by the way is big enough to be its own room. The entire room is 1400 square feet with 2 bathrooms, a huge bedroom with a gigantic king size bed.

... The rock formation was amazing. Our boat operator even took us directly through the surrounding formations even though most boats went completely around. On the pacific side of the formation is Divorce beach and the pacific ocean and on the other is Lovers Beach and the cabo san lucas bay. After snapping tonnes of pictures we had the taxi driver drop us of at pelican beach with the promise to return in an hour and a half.

Historical Traveler Reviews Club Cascadas de Baja Cabo San Lucas
My favorite place in the world
I have never enjoyed anywhere as much as I have during my annual stays at this resort. The place is unlike any other resort and the environment is pure escape from the hectic atmosphere of most other resorts. I love the restaurants in the nearby town of Cabo San Lucas and I look forward every year to my annual escape from winter.
I stayed at club Cascadas for a week. The grounds as well as the employee's are very nice. The food was excellent, the restuarant will cook the fish you catch to order. I would have to say the only thing that dissapointed me was the holes in the concrete bamboo windows and the window unit air conditioning. We hung blankets over the holes, turned the A/C up to full and left the bathroom doors closed so it was comfortable to cook food and entertain in the kitchen and living room area. I heard they are going to fix this problem with the A/C. The walk to town from Cascadas is long and not much fun on the dirt roads when its 95 degrees outside, but its possible to get a cab for $5.00. I am going back to Cabo again and would stay at Club Cascadas. The fishing is excellent!
6 of us stayed in the Escondido villa at Club Cascadas from Aug 7 - 14 and we had an awesome time. The villa itself was unique, very comfortable for 6 people and had a wonderful view of the ocean and gardens. Club Cascadas was very peaceful and the grounds were absolutely gorgeous. The swimming pools were clean and inviting and the restaurant was fantastic. We would go to Club Cascadas again in a heart beat. Based on my own opionion, Club Cascadas is not a resort for children or for young adults. There is no "party" atmosphere here, which is great if you're wanting to get away from it all. If you're into that, there's plenty to do and find outside the resort.
Club Cascadas or Best
The first time my wife and I went Club Cascadas was 4 years ago. From the moment we walked into the lobby of Cascadas we felt as though we had come home. We have a place in Hawaii and wanted to go somewhere different so we went to Cascadas. We liked it so much we bought a Malaga floor plan and could not be happier! I prefer Cascadas to anywhere else I've been!Rob Winter- Happy to be a member of the Cascadas Family!
Awesome get away
Club Cascadas de Baja is a great place to stay down in Cabo. The grounds are awesome, the staff was great. Great view of the ocean and the rocks. If you are planning to stay down in Cabo, definitely stay at Club Cascadas
For the most part I had an enjoyable time at Club Cascades de Baja. During the day I found the staff enjoyable, friendly and very helpful. The rooms are clean and tidy and the best part - location, location, location.... close to town, shopping, bars, restaurants, etc. Although the $4 VIRGIN Pina Coladas were kind of steep, I was willing to spend the money, after all - I'M ON VACATION!My only complaint: After 10 p.m. Club Cascadas de Baja turns into Club Auschwitz run by the Gestapo security. Perhaps it's because I'm just a mouthy chick and they don't like that, but I'm hard-working and I dumped a lot of my hard earned cash at this place and feel entitled to invite whomever I want to hangout with after-hours. If I must look this one small problem as the "glass half-full" - I always felt safe, like I did when I was 12.My advice - hang out on the beach til sunrise and then the day shift will let you and your entourage pass without batting an eyelash.*ENJOY*
Maybe I'm biased because I own a "home" at Cascadas - but hey, my money did my talking. Short of Las Ventanas Cascadas is by far and away the best in Los Cabos. It is an architectural master work - nothing in Cabo can compare on any level! My family and I have been going there for two weeks every year for the past 7 years. The staff is fantastic and the vast majority have never changed. I'm sorry nfrink, but your view of Cascadas is about is misguided as one could hope to find. I encourage anyone to go to the website for any of these resorts in Cabo, look at the photos and you decide. Many are nice - but they are quite simply nothing special. They are what you might find in San Diego or Florida.
What a great resort! A quaint little resort located on the beach, within walking distance of town. Down the beach from restaurants, other resorts, and Bars. The Staff was very accommodating, and pleasant. The restaurant at Club Cascades was excellent, with room service at no extra charge. Tha staff was very pleasant and fun. We will go back and enjoy the wonderful atmosphere and quaintness of the Club Cascades.
I don't know what this nfrink guy is thinking. "Annoying birds will wake you up at 7:00am no matter how tired you are, and loud people will keep you up all night." He must be really old and single or something because I have never heard someone who is so negative about life. Why leave home and go on vacation if you aren't going to enjoy the enviroment you are visiting in the firsts place. The accomadations might be a little rustic, but in a good way. There is nothing to bother you and this is what makes is so relaxing. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is great. There is a great workout facility and computer access for the techies. All I can say is don't listen to old man nfrink. Try it for yourselft and I am sure you will have one of the most relaxing stays in Mexico possible. Viva la Cabo!
I have stayed at other Cabo resorts in the past, and this was by far the worst. Don't be fooled by its "5 star" rating. The only good thing about staying there was the nice day spa they had. The worst thing about the trip was the windows in the unit. The windows are make of concrete with large holes with bamboo to the outside. Sounds exotic huh? Yea, well since those windows can NEVER be closed you hear everything and everyone that walks by. Annoying birds will wake you up at 7:00am no matter how tired you are, and loud people will keep you up all night. At the other resorts I have stayed in in Cabo the staff was willing to help you with your every need, and most speak at least SOME English, most are pretty fluent in English. Not at Club Cascadas de Baja, the management is rude and its really annoying how NO ONE will speak English to you except the one person at the front desk. When you vacation in Mexico you usually are very relaxed and taken care of. Not at Club Cascadas de Baja, stay at the Pueblo Bonito Rose instead, it is right next store. Only visit Cascasdas de Baja for a spa treatment.
