a few questions about cabo san lucas

We're planning to stay at Solmar in end of September or early October. I wonder what the weather is like. Do you recommend renting a car or is Solmar really just a few min. walk to town? Any recommendations for dive shops? Thanks!

Solmar is my most favorite! It's about abrisk, 10 min. walk to the marina and town, but it's nice to have a car if you want to go exploring out of town. If you have any Solmar questions, just ask. I will be there again in May.

Solmar is a wonderful choice. you can walk into town but if you want to go and do and see all that is Los Cabos IMHO you would do well to rent a car for at least a couple of days. then you can go to Todos Santos, home of the Hotel California, and a real Pueblo with an artistic flair. eat at the Cafe Santa Fe the KatD loves and stop at Art and Beer our favorite place to hang out as it is a real slice of "old Baja". you can also go to some of the great beaches and San Jsoe del Cabo to see the mission and maybe surf at Costa Azul. so much Baja so little time.I have sent you some links for diving and snorkeling which are my favorite companies. here are some links for you to explore.

We stayed at the Solmar 9 1/2 years ago for our honeymoon and loved it!!! One of my favorite things about it is the location and easy walking distance to everything (downtown, Medano beach). We personally do not rent a car in Mexico and IMO, you certainly do not need one especially in Cabo (unless you want to explore on the out skirts; we just stayed in the main areas). We were there in the summer, so no comment on the weather or dive shops. You could check out weather.com and put in Cabo and get the averages for the year. It will give you average hi and lo temps. and average amount of rainfall by each month. Have a great trip!!
