cabo v. barbados?

Has anyone been to both that can lean me one way or the other? Looking for a very good hotel and great beach -- not much on sightseeing, but need some activity (shopping, nightlife...). Timeframe is Labor Day weekend.

rs9,

as you might expect i am partial to Los Cabos. I have been to Barbados many times and it is a stunning place but it is far more tropical than Los Cabos which is the perfect combination of mountains and sea. more arid and desert like. Baja is more of an attitude thanit is a place. far more remote than Barbados. i think the ambiance in Los Cabos is unique,certainly the culture is special having evolved seperate and distinct from the mainland. lots of shopping and world class nighlife. i might surmise there could be no two places so different. Cabo would be my choice. i could go on for hours but here are some interesting links to review. Buena Suerte....... jim
