Melia Cabo Real - in April / May

Hi All,

So I'm VERY excited we just booked a great deal through Expedia and are staying at the Melia Cabo Real Hotel at the end of April / beginning of May. Couple of questions for you experts :)

1. How's the weather that time of year (and the crowd)?

2. I'm reading there's not much to do at the hotel after 10 or so, my boyfriend and are are in our 20s so we definitely need stuff to do, any suggestions? How far are we from fun?

3. Fav restaurants or meals?

4. What's the best way to get to and from the airport? We're only there 4 nights so I don't want to take forever but don't want to spend a fortune either.

5. What's on the must-do list as far as venturing out? Interested maybe in a sunset crusie or glass bottom boat to see the Arch.

6. Any other tips or advice to give me?

Sorry for all the questions but I really appreciate any advice you can give me!!! :)

So much to do ! You are staying on the road between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose Del Cabo. That means a cab ride to get to either town. Cabo San Lucas is the more Happening town. San Jose Del Cabo is quiet in comparison. Cab costs about $20 for the two of you one way. Getting A rental car at the Airport would be a great idea.

You can surf or learn to at the Surf Hotel in San Jose. Snorkle trips, Zip Line,race cars in the desert, fantastic fishing, horse back ride on the beach. A trip to Todos Santos and see the Hotel California.

Great local restaurants in both towns. Get incredible shrimp Tacos/Tortas at Gordo Le Le in Cabo. Have a Best Burger in Cabo at Burguerama in Cabo. Two good places for Italian are Capo san Giovani or Salvatores for 1 serving of Lasagne that will feed both of you, very inexpensive. La Fonda in Cabo for Mexican food. I loved Mariscos Las Tres Islas for seafood. The Marina in Cabo is a nice place for meals and drinks in an upscale setting. Tip 1. Change your cash to Pesos. 2. Vouchers available for big savings at www.loscabosguide.com
