This post covers general travel information to Cabo San Lucas – I’ll follow up with a review of our resort in another post!
My husby and I really wanted to go to Cabo San Lucas this year to see if it could be our semi-regular place for winter travel. The under 5 hr flight from Edmonton is really attractive!
The airport has super clean washrooms and you don’t need to pay for use. They’re readily accessible when you arrive and depart. When you arrive you need to have laser focus on who/where you’re trying to go to avoid the timeshare distractions. When departing, there are multiple Subways, an Sbarro, Starbucks, and gift shops. Of note: the Mexican beer glasses I was looking for were about half the price in the Cabo San Lucas mall by the marina. But they were convenient in the airport and I had to have a couple!
For pesos, the rate I received at the bank was marginally better than the Thomas Cook foreign exchange desk, but required 3 days’ notice. We returned with money leftover and we went off-resort 2 days.
The weather was about 25-26 degrees Celsius during the day. It was quite cool at night and at breakfast, around 17 degrees. I brought one hoodie and one jean jacket and could have used at least one nice sweater.
GO TO THE MARINA FOR ANIMAL SIGHTINGS
My husband and I took a taxi from our resort to the marina, which has a mall (with bathrooms) and saw about a hundred pelicans and multiple sea lions hanging out with the boats. We also saw a pufferfish along the edge of the marina and flying fish along the adjacent beach.
Let me know if you have any questions and I’ll cover more info!
