Not sure if we need a car rental?

Hello all -

I have seen a few topics on car rentals, which were helpful.

This will be our first time to Cabo, so trying to get better perspective where our resort is compared to the center of the town.

We are staying on the Pacific Ocean side, next to TerraSol Beach Resort.

Please advise.

Thanks.

You really won't need a car unless you want to explore more of the Baja. You are within a very short walk of everything in town, and very near the marina.

The first few times we were down, we did all our exploring right in town. There is a lot to see and do that's very close by. A fun way to get to Medano Beach is to catch a water taxi from the marina.

Now we rent a car because we want to see more of the area, but we've been going for eleven years.

I agree with NewGrama. Unless you really want to explore more(away from town)--no need to rent the first time. You will love your location!

If you're next to Terrasol, then you're either at Playa Grande or Solmar. Both places are walking distance to town, and literally right next to the Marina where you can catch a water taxi to Medano Beach for swimming & water activities.

Our flight gets in very late on Saturday. What is the best way to grab a ride to the resort without getting dragged in to any "time share" discussions or worse? Is there a reliable shuttle service company I should use?

That depends on the resort... where are you staying?

Check out the map at loscabosguide.com. It will give you an idea of where things are.

The best way to get a perspective of where your staying compared to the rest of Cabo is to get a paper map with the location of the resort your staying at then download Google Earth http://earth.google.com/ and then zoom into Cabo.

This will really give you a great visual of where your staying and it's relative distance to town, marina etc..

Cabo has all been mapped in highres on Google Earth and the actual feeling you get for the locations of places is amazing.

Give it a try!!!
