Just returned a few hours ago from 11 great days in Cabo. We stayed at Solmar and had a wonderful time. On Monday evening we were enjoying a beautiful sunset on the beach - best the whole trip. Enjoying watching the enormous waves and talking with various people on the beach about what a beautiful evening it was and how the waves have been unbelievable. An elderly couple passed us taking photo on a walk to Playa Grande and on their way back we said hello and they smiled. Unfortunately, once they got back in front of GS - we witness a huge wave hit the beach and swept a person out ... others ran out and another huge wave it. It was horrifying and many were screaming. The result - luckily only ONE person lost their life...could have been worse with the people trying to save her. The elderly couple we had just said hi to were too close to the ocean and she was swept out. They did recover her body finally the following morning.
I want to make new people going to Cabo aware that the ocean is NOT a safe place and when you see signs posted and people warning you how dangerous - PLEASE listen. We witnessed several people in the 10 days, get into trouble because of the large waves...unfortunately, no one was able to help that lady and she died.
The people at Solmar are not to blame, Cabo is not to blame....only people that refuse to listen. My heart aches for the unfortunate husband that has to go home without a wife, the brave people who risk their lifes and were unable to save the lady and all of the people that witnessed her being suck into the ocean.
