I know this doesn't exactly belong on this forum but the Todos Santos forum is so quiet! So I will try here.
Planning a trip somewhere warm over the Christmas holidays where we can do lots of surfing (myself and husband, early 30s). We are pretty much beginners, so not looking for crazy waves. Don't want to be in a big party place. So we were thinking of staying at/near Los Cerritos, mainly for the beach. Few questions:
1) Is the drive to Los Cerritos from the airport really that crazy? Is a small car better or something like a jeep/SUV?
2) How quiet is Los Cerritos? Are there any restaurants or shops nearby? What about nearby Todos Santos? Like I said we want it relatively quiet but would like some options for eating so we are not at the same restaurant every single day and some shops/attractions nearby for a break from the beach sometimes would be nice.
3) Anyone have an idea what the surfing would be like in Dec? OK for beginners? From what I've read it will be good for our level but would like to hear your thoughts.
4) Last but maybe most important questions is about accomodations. Was looking at Villas de Cerritos, anyone have experience and can anyone comment on villas versus bungalows? Also looking at Cerritos Surf Colony. Hacienda Cerritos is out of our budget and not great reviews anyways. Any other places to suggest? Looking to spend less than $120/night, "luxuries" like private bathroom are a must, kitchen/ette would be nice.
Thanks for your help!
