The food was really good. The entertainment was a bit raunchy. Great for adults only. Didn't feel comfortable seeing children around the area where there were topless drunk women dancing around during the games.

Beautiful beach, though hilly, as Cabo is desert/mountain area. Too rough to swim in most places. Is a trek to walk the beach as sand has a lot of clay from mountains in it. But, it is beautiful and the water is an absolutely amazing azur color!

Medano Beach is directly across from El Arco (Land's End) on the Sea of Cortez. It has white sand beaches and a great place for swimming. It's warm waters make it a perfect place to snorkel, swim or just lay in the sun. The views of the sunsets are gorgeous. There are several resorts on Medano Beach that are very... More

The beach is great, the water is fabulous and there are activities to do. Banana boating, jet skiing, water taxies to other locations, etc. You can lounge on a chair and umbrella if you want. It can get busy on cruise ship days, which are usually Tues and Thurs. The vendors do ask you several times if you want anything,... More

This is the beach with all the hotels on it near down town. If you are looking for jewelry or local made clothes, hats, etc. you will find it here. Great place to walk and see Cabo. I feel very safe here.

The vendors can be overwhelming but if you ignore them you'll have a... More

This beach is close; but we had a car and ended up driving to Chellena and Santa Maria... so much NICER! At Medano the "sellers" kept coming back to ask you if you wanted this or that, go old quick and the beach was not nearly as nice/clean as the other two above!

Medano Beach is a great place to people-watch while relaxing in lounge chairs on the sand, underneath large umbrellas. The view is amazing and the cold drinks were delicious!

Carnival cruise excursion for a beach day in Cabo. We ended up here after our catamaran to the famous arch. Our beach day was only for 1.5 hours, with a short lunch, and some souvenir shopping. We definitely wished we had more time, because this beach was beautiful. We got to lay out in their comfortable cabana lounges and play... More
