What a great forum! This is my first post, but I have been doing tons of research. I couldn't have booked my trip without it!
So rather than make mistakes and learn the hard way on my own, I figured I would reach out and ask the experts on this forum. A friend and I are heading to Cabo Feb 26th - March 4th. We are staying at the ME Cabo. We are both single, 30-something guys who thrive on the singles scene, and still like to party like we're in our 20's every now and then. :-) After doing tons of research on this site, it sounded like the ME would be a good fit.
Anyway, being that this is my first time to Cabo (and Mexico, with the exception of border towns), what kind of advice would you give a newbie? I know the following:
1) Don't make eye contact with the timeshare people at the airport terminal (or any timeshare people, for that matter)
2) Don't drink the water (shouldn't be a problem, as we will be living on alcoholic beverages during our stay) :-)
3) Find out the price of a taxi ride, before you get in, etc.
But, what else should we watch out for, or be aware of?
What about currency? What works best there? US Dollars? Credit cards? Or, do we pay for everything in Pesos? If so, what is the best way to go about doing it? Where do you exchange your currency? At the airport? Or, do you just use an ATM? And, how much currency do you generally carry around on you?
We are not into golfing or fishing. But, are there any "must see" or "must do" activities while we're there? ATV rentals? Jet Skis? Snorkeling? Booze cruise?
I understand that drinks are at bit pricey at the ME. Are there any cool beach bars or nighttime bars in the area that are more affordable? Might be nice to switch it up a few times since we're going to be there for 6 nights.
Also, are there any places to eat around the ME that are cheap? We are easy to please as far as food is concerned, so we could live on cheap tacos or burgers all week. Fine dining would be wasted on us. We would rather save money on food, and spend it on booze. Any places you would recommend for cheap eats in that area?
Sorry to bombard the forum with so many questions. Anyway, thanks in advance for all of your insight and advice!
