Playa Santa Maria is in a breathtakingly beautiful cove, but the beach is on the smaller side and when the snorkel boats and party barges start filling the cove at about 11 am there's no way to get away from the hundreds of people that descend on the beach and snorkeling area, not to mention each of them have different stereos blasting and competing with each other.
Still, we're glad we went. The snorkeling was good and the setting was great. There were some facilities when we were there; a port-o-let and trash containers but bring your own shade because there are only a couple primo spots next to the rocks to get some shade if you need it.
From Cabo, there are two small signs on the highway, after the second sign you will see the bus stop on the right, turn into the bus stop and take the dirt road that leads toward the beach. They were working in the area during the week of April 23rd 2012 and there was no sign to the beach at the bus stop. Also, you can drive right to the beach by staying left on the dirt road instead of parking in the fenced off and unguarded parking lot on the right.
