Anything like Stone Island in Cabo San Lucas?

Our family was in Mazatlan last summer and spent a wonderful last day (wish it had been the first, so we could've gone back every day) on Stone Island. The children (3 and 6) loved the gentle waves and shallow water (tide was out), and we loved the convenience of the family-owned restaurants right on the beach and the crowds of local folks having fun. It felt like we'd finally gotten away from the touristed part of Mazatlan.

Question: is there a similar place in Cabo San Lucas that anyone knows about? We're going there after Easter.

Question: what is the best place to stay at in Mazatlan if we want to go to Stone Island almost every day? (Last time we exchanged into Pueblo Bonito Emerald Bay, and it was quite a trip to get to Stone Island.)

To visit Stone Island a lot, pick a hotel downtown, near Las Olas Beach, or better yet, there's even a little hotel on Stone Island itself.

As far as a comparison in Cabo, there's not really much. There are four primary swimming beaches in Cabo, Medano Beach, Playa Santa Maria, Lovers Beach and Playa Chileno. The latter three are all without facilities of any kind - well, Chileno does have a restroom - but no restaurants or anything like that.

Medano Beach is the only developed beach - tons of restaurants, watersports, bars, and beach vendors. However, the ambience is more like Cancun than Stone Island. You won't feel like you are escaping like you mention you felt on Stone Island.

The other three beaches are more of an escape for sure, but without the facilities of Stone Island.

Hope this helps, have a great time in Cabo!
