This morning and without much research I booked a last minute trip to SJD leaving this coming Saturday (I'll be staying at the Barcelo Los Cabos). It is also my very first trip to SJD ... and as a solo traveler on top of that. Just looking for a few days of R & R.
I am sure my questions have been posted before and answers can probably be found somewhere in this forum. I will do my own research in parallel but due to the short preparatory time I have I decided to ask these questions again and I apologize in advance for doing so.
Transportation airport to resort:
I saw several postings and suggestions here for private transportation. Does anyone have a recommendation for shuttles or shared vans?
Excursions from SJD:
I know the prime time for whale watching is winter to spring. Are there any whale watching tours that are worth going on at this time of the year?
Are there any other excursion you would recommend? My interest would be more in landscape and scenery and nature than in visiting towns.
Money (I ask primarily for verification)
From what I understand from posts here is that it is ok to travel with just USD. In case I would need Pesos I could get some from the ATM at the hotel. For tipping it would be advisable to have a stack of $1 bills. Correct?
Anything else you can think of that I should be aware of?
Thank you so much,
