Cabo is a nice resort town-(watch out for the time share sellers- everywhere you turn- especially lined up in their booths as you get off the plane) Diving mediocre at best- especially in August as the warm water at the best location near there on the sea of Cortez side(2.5 hour trip each way by car) - keeps the hammerheads down pretty deep. But there is the 'only true living coral reef on the US continent" (so they say) out the same location that is mildly nice.. Cabo has a small bay which ends at a point at 'lands End" which separates the Pacific ocean from the town- best local diving is out towards Lands End and there are a number of operations that will supply the dive service at 5-6 different - fairly shallow sites- More sea life than Monterey- and has one dive in midst of sea lions (they can be playful) Not much plant or rock life- but some if you look close... On the beach- have at least one dinner at 'the Office' Lots of other good bars and restaurants in town and around beaches as well. Fair amount of night life- all around- take local taxi or walk if staying near town- as nothing is more than 20 minutes away- Oh- they have a chamber in town as well. expect to pay add on to each excursion out for that also- Ken [log in to unmask] wrote: > Hello all, > > Its nice to start seeing some posting on this list.
