“Kid friendly and calm beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Liked the fact the waters were calm and the kids enjoyed it very much with their buggy boards.
It would be nice to have some umbrellas.

“No fish to see”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

Took the Cabo Escape tour...They call it a Snorkel and Kayak tour...we had the early tour left at 8:00 am and it's a 3 hour tour...They did have a nice breakfast... but when we got to santa Maria they told us we should put wet suits on and that was $12 extra a person...we paid $80 for both and now they want more money...and they told us jellyfish were in the water...I got one, but my boyfriend did not. Anyway did not see one fish of any kind and no kayaking because they said not enough time...we were only in the water for 15 minutes tops...it was freezing...We thought it was a rip off...

“Snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We took a large catamaran ride to go snorkeling with a group of other people to Santa Maria Bay. The water was perfect temp for june and the snorkeling was fun! My advice would be to take a life jacket along when you snorkel so you can relax and float along as you watch for fish!

“Beautiful, secluded beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Lovely beach with clear water and white sand! You have to drive down a dirt road to get here but it's worth it when you get to the end. Later in the morning there was a guy walking along the beach renting umbrellas but best to bring everything you need as there are no facilitates, restaurants or shops here.
