Your first glimpse of the beach at Los Cabos is breathtaking -- the desert meets the beach. It's so hot and the water looks so inviting but no one is swimming! Sure, there are surfers and boaters, but no one is playing in the waves. Turns out the undertow is so strong that swimming is not safe. We stuck to the pool at the hotel...but the water is cold. Since Los Cabos is in the desert, the day is hot but the nights are cool so the water doesn't really warm up too much. Don't go to Cabo thinking you're going to be sitting under a palm tree on the beach and taking a dip when you get hot. Go to the Dominican Republic instead!
