beaches

We are planning a family trip to Cabo with adult children.

We love and enjoy being in the ocean.

We are looking for an all inclusive where the beach is not too

rough any suggestions?

Ocean beaches that some might consider to be 'too rough' are actually deadly. Most folks return to shore, but not all of them. So when you read a hotel review for any place on "Hotel Beach" in San Jose and the reviewer describes swimming or wading in the ocean, be aware that this is a reviewer who ignored the red flags and went in the ocean anyway. They got lucky.

The only 100% All Inclusive resort on a swimmable beach is the Melia Cabo Real. It's about 20 km / 15 miles from Cabo and 10 km / 6 miles from San Jose (the Tourist Corridor.)

I think that Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas is a better choice for a family with adult children. Medano Beach is the only big swimmable beach with several resorts, it's walking distance to town, and it has beach bars that are entertaining for many folks. These are regular resorts, but many have an AI option. Please read about all of the Resorts On A Beach and the All-Inclusive Resorts in Los Cabos in the upper right, Top Questions about Cabo San Lucas over on the Cabo page. (This is the San Jose page.)

If you want to stay in San Jose del Cabo and enjoy the pool rather than the ocean, there are several AI resorts that might suit your family.

Last comment.... even swimmable Medano Beach can be dangerous. Rogue waves and strong undertow exist. A man lost his life last week.
