After 5 years in Playa del Carmen, we are considering trying the Cabo area for something different. Multi-generational family ranging from ages 15, 20s, to late 40s. We are nervous about trying something new, but figured we should try a new area and thought Cabo may be worth visiting due to the potential for fishing, whale-watching, and new scenery. (We've also been to Mazatlan)
We will be traveling during Spring Break - mid March. Prefer AI for food preference/schedule reasons (seems like this is less of an option than in PDC). Like activities during the day & night (contests, shows, music, etc). Would like the beach to be nice, but we are not big ocean swimmers (may wade in a few times if available, but not a must). We are in the pools during the day when not sight-seeing. We like decent views and walking along the beach.
We like the resort to be clean, budget friendly, & decent. We are not into the stuffy high-end type of atmosphere. For a comparison if anyone has been to PDC - we have stayed at Sandos Playacar, Iberostar Tucan, Viva Wyndham Azteca, Sandos Caracol, and Blue Bay Grand Esmerelda (in order of what we liked best to least). Prefer variety of food choices, although don't necessarily need high-end food options.
Location in terms of Cabo is not a major deal compared to our other preferences. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
