Cabo, Where to Stay

In Cabo San Lucas

Hotel Mar de Cortez: Calle Lazaro Cardenas and Guerrero. Tel: (800) 347-8821, or in Mexico 011-52-114-3-14-32. This is Cabo before the boom. Doubles run $33.00 US in the old section, $41.50 in the new. If you don't want to pay $100.00 or more, this is the place. Colonial style ambience and an interesting mix of people. Bar, restaurant and pool are all terrific. Close to everything. Highly recommended.

In San Jose Del Cabo:

Casa Madre: 63 Finisterra Blvd. Tel: 011-52-114-2-08-69, Fax: 011-52-114-2-25-85. Something different from what I usually like, but a nice diversion. This is a B&B run by an English woman and her Canadian husband on the golf course. Beautiful home and rooms with a pool overlooking the seventh green with the sea beyond. Not real Mexican, but well worth the $50.00 price. A good way to ease into Mexico after your flight before heading off to Todos Santos. They don't advertise, it's all word of mouth and they stay busy, so call ahead for reservations.
