Rent a car. Rent a car.

Get it at the airport or at your hotel but make sure you arrange for it on the internet before you get to Cabo as it is much cheaper. Decline all insurance EXCEPT personal liability which you need by law. Make sure you have a good credit card company like a Platinum Visa or American Express that will cover everything, including deductible, if you rent in Mexico.

If you don't rent a car, expect to pay $25 one way via taxi from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose Del Cabo. If you're only doing this once or twice - no big deal. But the rental car will save big bucks.

Some hotels have shuttles into Cabo - but plan on taking a taxi back.

No, dont rent a car unless you really want to do some traveling. The bus system is so very EASY and cheap! It costs 1.50 each way from San Jose to Cabo. The buses can be picked up at the highway (very easy and safe to get to). The people are friendly on the buis and we had no problems at all. The last bus departs from Cabo about 9:30pm 10pm---itsthe way we went...no worry about parking or drinking and driving. If you want to sightsee in San Jose-they have busses (looks like a school bus)-costs 50 cents usa or 5 pesos and get syou all over san jose

enjoy-feel free to email me with any other questions-we went last jan and loved it!
