Despite the peddlers (less than Medano Beach) we really liked this place. Shallow area with gentler surf for boogie boarding and my teenager learned to surf with the help of a lesson. The beach club is average but if you agree to spend 100 pesos (about $8 US) you park for free (beware the soft sandy areas though). They will... More

We spent an afternoon hanging at Playa Los Cerritos. Walking the beach, playing in the surf and just relaxing. The surf can be a bit rough for those that are inexperienced, but it is still a lot fun. The water was colder here on the Pacific coast than in the Sea of Cortez, much colder than Jamaica or Hawaii I... More

No trip to the area would be complete without getting on a boogie board (for those of us who don't surf) and getting into the waves at Cerritos. If you're going to go a couple times would recommend getting a board in Los Cabos or you can rent them on the beach. What a blast!

This is a great beach for getting in the water and having fun. Also have a variety of services including food and drinks, places to sit under shade, and rentals of boogie boards. As about to leave met Durio who gives surf lessons and got his info to make sure we get together next year. If you are like me... More

First trip to Cerritos and we really enjoyed it. Camped out and Cerritos beach club with chairs, umbrellas, etc and a good if not overpriced lunch. Surf is serious so not a place for young kids.

We stop by between Todos Santos and Cabo San Lucas for the house made tequila margaritas. The place has deteriorated over the years and the chairs are worn and the fire pits no longer work, bummer because the location after dark is very peaceful. Seems they do not want to be open after sunset. As usual in Mexico there are... More

Great lessons, I was able to stand on the board my first time. The instructions were clear and concise. The instructor was there with me in the water at all times making comments.

This beach has it all. Calm swimming beach good for children and adults, great surfing, awesome scenery, horse back riding and a nice Beach Bar. It had been twenty years since I was on a one of those blow up wave riders and I caught my self smiling as I rode a good size wave to the beach. As far... More

For our initial visit to the well known 'surfer beach', it was a bit too commercial for our tastes. The bar was fine, and the beach had 'a different look' than the beaches of Villa Santa Cruz, near the town of Todas Santos. I mean the sand itself. There were the Mayan huts where people can rent to stay &... More
