We have recently returned from our 4th trip to Cabo San Lucas. We have always enjoyed stayeing at Casa Dorada because of it's close proximity to town, the marina and the beach bars. The primary reason we started going to Cabo during the winter was for the warm but not tropical climate and to golf. This year we decided to extend our stay for 3 days and moved up to San Jose to a small, quiet hotel on Costa Azul and we loved it! The change from San Lucas to San Jose was radical. I knew it would be quieter, but I had no idea how peaceful it would be. I also didn't realize until I had left San Lucas, how tired I was of vendors, time share salespeople, jet ski exhaust and crowded beach conditions. I had also grown tired of the marina area and was disappointed that the Hidalgo area streets were torn up. In contrast, the downtown area of San Jose was clean, well kept and appeared to be free of children "begging". In a nutshell we fell in love with San Jose and Costa Azul. I am sure we will return to the Cabo area but it might not be to San Lucas. It may have lost it's magic for us!
