Wife and I are headed to the Melia Cabo Real Nov 20-27. Normally I scour TA, other websites, buy guidebooks, and plan every 15 minutes out in advance, but we are going for a destination wedding. Since the dates and hotel were determined by the wedding, I have done no research. I am now realizing that in two weeks I'm headed to a place I know nothing about. It will also be our first time in Cabo and at an AI.
How easy is it to get to Los Cabos or San Jose from our hotel, which I understand is kind of out on its own. How much does a cab or bus cost and how long will it take? Based on the forum I assume we will take a shuttle from the airport, but didn't know what the best way to travel from the hotel to what is nearby.
I have a lot of food and drink questions. Can we eat at the restaurant that takes reservations more than once? Is there a dress code at any of the restaurants? Is the food good and is there a good variety? Any idea what the beer selection is? If we get tired of the resort food, any suggestions for a good meal or two - lunch or dinner - in Los Cabos?
We really like to snorkel. What are the best spots? Also, any good kayaking spots?
Is there anything that you would tell a first timer that they must do (I notice a lot of people mention fishing but that isn't my cup of tea)?
Any help answering any of the questions is greatly appreciated.
