“Fantastic Walk!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2013

The marina was a great place to casually stroll and people watch. In fact, it was so leisurely that we did it with beers in hand from our own cooler, and it was like our own little walking bar. The vendors were not aggressive at all. A simple "gracias no" and a smile sends them on their way. And some of them do have spectacular things. Just haggle like there is no tomorrow. The sunshine felt great, and breeze off the water was so refreshing. The area is very clean, and the ocean smells so good! In fact, all of downtown Cabo was super clean. Especially compared to places like Cozumel. But Don't fall for anyone telling you to take your excursions right away because it is suppose to rain for the rest of the week. We got that a few times. Apparently it only ever rains for one day at a time in Cabo and only about 3 days out of the whole year.
I wouldn't recommend actually eating on the Mariana because it is a little touristy and prices are super high, but on the other hand the view is great.
And whatever you do, do not take your picture with the baby lion cub or give the "wildlife organization" any money. It's located at a kiosk next to Sr. Frong's and is a front for prostitution. It's run by a pimp who poses a bunch of young girls in leopard print tank tops as "wildlife staff" for the lion cub. My husband and I overheard a few "business" exchanges there when we were waiting for our cruise to take off. It made me really upset because the poor little baby lion didn't look very well cared for, and its merely serving as a front. Pass on the word, and don't be fooled!

“Be careful”

Great to see the bars and excitement. Big boats, lots to see and take in. Our first trip we had nice weather, I suggest not going in the rain, if it ever does.

“Nice place to eat, shop and visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2013

A nice walk around the marina...many shops...bars...restaurants and a big mall with most brand name stores.....Scotia bank.......a great way to spend a half day or so.......
Don't forget to try "lobster & jumbo shrimps" at Mariscos Mocambo. A large 2 person dish for $60.00..... Well worth it :)

Make sure you take only US dollars or pesos as CAN $ exchange is both time consuming and exchange rate is diculus.

Happy traveling

Nice eateries, Starbucks, and affordable drinking. You can also shop for souvenirs. This is where I boarded the glass bottom boat for my excursions trip.
