From what I have read, zica is in the Caribbean area, and not on the pacific! This is one of the reasons we go there! Another is Cabo has less than 20 days of rain per year, and much lower humidity! I’ve never even seen a mosquito in Cabo! This is a desert area, not prone to mosquitoes! Have a great time! This is our favorite area. Been to Riu palace 6 times now. Also we walked to Riu palace baha and it looks great also! Enjoy!

We stayed in ocean view with nice size private balcony. It was close to the activity pool and restaurants and u just go down the stairs and there’s the beach. The room was suite type with living room and a nice size bathroom. The balcony is good size. We didn’t stay much in balcony. Always on the pool, beach, excursion or go around the mall by the harbor, hotel restaurants/buffet and shows.
