Cabo San Lucas & San Jos� del Cabo
...and the 'corridor' in-between make up: "Los Cabos"
"By far the most information on Los Cabos of any current Web site"
--Joe Cummings, Cabo Handbook
Superb fishing, dining, golfing, shopping, diving/snorkeling, white-sand beaches, nightlife, as well as beautiful sunsets and the rock formations of "Land's End" are the attractions of visitors to Los Cabos. There are excellent opportunities for surfing as well, with the wave action being most consistent in the summer months.
San Jos� del Cabo is the quieter, more colonial of the two towns, Cabo San Lucas the newer, livelier destination. The airport is located just to the north of San Jos�. A new highway is being proposed to speed the drive from the airport to the northern part of the "corridor." If you're going for the nightlife or the fishing (The waters off Cabo San Lucas are termed "Marlin Alley" and this area is dubbed "The Billfish Capital of the World" for good reason), then Cabo San Lucas is the place you're most likely going to want to stay in or near, not San Jos� del Cabo. Many an unknowing traveler has been lured into staying in SJdC by their travel agent cooing about what a great deal it is at whatever the particular hotel/motel/location is ("and hey, Cabo San Lucas isn't that far away"). All of these people that went for the nightlife or the fishing end up spending much of their time on the trip discussing how they should've stayed in CSL. Hotel/resort and other construction continues at an unbelievable pace in CSL, so don't be surprised at all of the uncompleted work sitting so prominently in town.
If being in a little bit quieter town with a more Mexican colonial "flavor" to it, then possibly San Jos� del Cabo is better suited for your desires. SJdC has considerably more history to it than CSL, and the colonial buildings are there to prove it.
Since the world-class golf to be had in the area is along the 'corridor,' your lodging location isn't as much of an issue.
- Los Cabos is *not* inexpensive, especially by Baja standards. I do not know how it compares with other popular Mexican resorts. Prices here though have risen dramatically since 1994 (some lodging facilities that I'm aware of charge triple the price now versus then). I've overheard more than one visitor here wonder why they came to Los Cabos as opposed to (for example) a Hawaii vacation, because the total costs involved can be quite similar.
- Parking in Cabo San Lucas was at a premium in 1999, enough to create the advent of pay-to-park "public parking" lots. In 2000, the dirt lot to the west of the Plaza Las Glorias had been opened up to free public parking (and eliminated the pay-lots). This dirt lot will probably be available long enough for the brand new shopping mall and parking garage being built on the east (opposite) side of the marina to be completed. There will be free parking at the mall after it opens.
Places to stay:
The deluxe accommodation properties recommended here for Cabo San Lucas all happen to be in a similar area along the safest of the swimming beaches, Playa Medano. Besides the location along Playa Medano, these facilities seem to consistently provide the best customer service (which is a *big* consideration on why certain other properties are not included here). In order from closest to furthest from town:
- Hotel Hacienda -- Personal favorite. One of the original locations in CSL when it was a destination only to those "in the know." The staff's service here is excellent. 800-733-2226. Ultra-Deluxe
- Mel�a San Lucas -- Sister to the Mel�a Cabo Real along the corridor. This location is preferable to the Cabo Real complex for those wishing to explore town. Excellent property, nice pool area and fantastic view of Land's End. 800-336-3542. Ultra-Deluxe
- Pueblo Bonito -- Five-story complex with blue-tile domes on the roof. Very posh. 800-252-8008, 800-442-5300, 800-262-4500. Ultra-Deluxe
- Pueblo Bonito Ros� -- Similar version of it's sister next door, except they've built nicer suites into this facility, and thusly the prices here are higher than next door. Same phone numbers as the Pueblo Bonito listed above. Ultra-Deluxe
- Club Cascadas Condominiums -- The furthest away from town of these recommendations, and technically they're condo rentals. An exquisite property with a well-respected restaurant on-site. One-to-three bedroom deluxe villas here. 114.30738 Ultra-Deluxe
Marina Cabo Plaza -- On the Marina. Some rooms have kitchenettes. This location's a little more secluded than other choices on the Marina. Many people choose to stay at the Hotel Plaza Las Glorias, but I always get bad reports from many different sources about their experiences here (and I wasn't too happy about one of the Las Glorias employees finding humor in setting off my truck alarm in the parking lot one morning). If you're wanting a location on the Marina (going fishing perhaps?), think about giving the Marina Cabo Plaza a try. 800-524-5104. Deluxe
Cabo Inn -- East of downtown. Loyal clientele. Standard rooms purposely forgo telephones, TVs to give you that "away from it all" feeling. All have a/c for comfort however. The downstairs atrium area is conducive to interaction with other guests and has a BBQ & Direct TV (if you're having sports withdrawal). Two special rooms worth mentioning... One room for up to 6 people is a great deal for a large group, and "Juan's Love Palace" is a palapa-thatched accommodation on the roof with a queen bed and private patio. The roof area has many common features for guests as well such as a small spa (social "pool"), deck area, freezer (fishermen are you listening?). "Love Palace" guests get exclusive use of the roof amenities after 10pm. 114.30819 Moderate
Chili Pepper Inn -- Located just north of downtown in a quiet area. Unique amenities for this price range, like Cable TV (21" Televisions w/HBO, CNN, ESPN) and free local telephone calls from your room, make the value here excellent (for those interested in such amenities). Rooms are all unique with colorful accents and enjoyable artwork. Extremely gracious hosts. Rooms have one queen bed, except for a larger master suite available for slightly more with two queens and a refrigerator. The master suite is a great value for two couples or a family. All rooms have a/c. No smoking in rooms. 114.38611 Moderate
Siesta Suites -- Downtown. Kitchenettes, some rooms with ceiling fans, some with a/c. Because of price/amenities/location this place frequently sells out months ahead of time. Plan early. 602-331-1354 114.32773. Moderate
Hotel Mar de Cortez -- Downtown. A/c, swimming pool, restaurant and outdoor bar. Short walk to almost anywhere in town. The older section has one queen or two twin beds, newer section has two doubles. Suites available here have either a king or two doubles along with two twins. Possibly the best value in town for this price range. Located in the heart of downtown. 800-347-8821 Budget to Moderate
Las Margaritas Inn -- Downtown. Second-story location above a small corner mall that's crawling distance from two of the more popular nightclubs in town: Kokomo's & El Squid Roe. Two blocks away from the marina. One and two-bedroom suites with kitchenettes, telephones, TV's, a/c. 114.30450, 31696, or 32550. Moderate
El Dorado -- A few blocks north of the downtown "tourist" area (on Morelos). Clean, with a courtyard for off-street parking. Small swimming pool area with a separate pool for small children. Bar next to pool has an attendant during pool hours. Rooms are priced on whether they have a television, television & a/c, or none of the above. Great budget choice if you want to avoid the downtown noise but still be within walking distance. 114.32810. Budget
Hotel Villa Dorada -- Small inexpensive place with 11 rooms on the back side of a small convenience store away from town somewhat. On Juventud between Hidalgo & Matamoros. The rooms are fairly spacious, new & clean. Walk-in availability only. No phone. Ultra-Budget to Budget
Super Crown 7 -- Not overly-worth mentioning except for one thing: All the rooms come with only one bed, and if you request a room for two people with two beds, they'll give you two rooms for the price of one. At the 2-for-1 rate it's one of the best values in town. This was the policy while visiting in March-2000 and the rates were US$70 each or 2-for-1. I don't know that a policy such as this can last. Worth mentioning however. Near the Pemex on the east side of town. A/c, Cable TV, Telephone. email@example.com 114.37787 - 114.37790 Budget to Moderate
When it comes to properties along the corridor, understand that although beautiful new facilities exist, the more established properties had first 'stab' at the more scenic bays and beaches to locate themselves on. In no way are these older establishments rundown in the least, quite the opposite, they are spectacular secluded get-away spots. Don't be afraid to spend your entire time in Los Cabos between your flight in and your flight out holed up at a resort along the 'corridor.'
Fiesta Americana Grand Los Cabos -- km 9. Pretty nice. Newly opened (late 1999) in the Cabo del Sol development. Families with children 4 to 12 years of age should look into the Club Fiesta Kids. The regular rooms come with either a king or two doubles. The rooms with a king have bathrooms with both tile bathtub and glass-doored shower. The bathtub has a small waterfall faucet. Rooms with two doubles don't have a tub, but the shower is larger and provides plenty of space for two. 800-FIESTA-1. Ultra-Deluxe
Hotel Twin Dolphin -- km 11. Next to Playa Santa Maria, a wonderful snorkeling location. A semi-smaller "boutique" hotel with 44 rooms ("private villas") and 6 suites. All facing the sea, and with a/c, tile floors, marble bathrooms and handmade furniture. One of the finest locations in all of Los Cabos, and one of the original three along the corridor here. Unique architecture. 800-421-8925. Ultra-Deluxe
Hotel Cabo San Lucas -- km 14.5. On Playa Chileno, another favorite snorkeling/diving spot for visitors. Lush, tropical grounds, very romantic. 800-733-2226. Ultra-Deluxe
Las Ventanas al Paraiso -- km 19.5. The new "ultimate" resort, located in the Cabo Real complex. 60 rooms. If you're considering any of the $350+/night resorts along the corridor, why settle for second-best when rates at Las Ventanas have recently been as low as US$475 per night. Even the small things are done right here. "Trifles make perfection, and perfection is no trifle." 888-525-0483, 114.40258 Ultra-Ultra-Deluxe
Westin Regina Los Cabos -- km 22. Plush, and away from the action. Opened in 1994 to considerable fanfare, this facility has outstanding architectural features in its design (including the colors used influenced from the desert landscape). Activities available make it a good choice with visitors bringing their kids. 800-228-3000. Ultra-Deluxe
Hotel Palmilla -- km 27. Another of the originals. Close to San Jos�, great golf-course (another 9 holes just opened in late 1999 making 27 in all), great location, great service, great facility. Red-tiled roof architecture. 800-637-2226. Ultra-Ultra-Deluxe
Casa de Huespedes Consuelo -- A small, basic and ultra-inexpensive option. Probably the lowest priced option in town worth mentioning. When they're not full, you can use a room to shower and clean up for about US$3. On Morelos just south of Juarez. 114.20643. Ultra-Budget
Hotel Ceci -- Probably the best overall of the ultra-inexpensive options in town. Unfortunately because of this it's often full and difficult to get a room. Some rooms have fans, some a/c. It'll cost you a couple extra dollars for an a/c room. Ultra-Budget
Hotel Colli -- Very clean budget accommodations. Another that fills up constantly and is difficult to get a room in. The proprietors will put a "no vacancy" sign up in the door window if they're full. All 12 rooms here have TV and a/c. 114.20725 Budget
Posada Terranova -- Downtown. TV, a/c, clean rooms, nice restaurant and bar. 114.20534. Moderate
Tropicana -- Downtown, behind the Tropicana Bar & Grill. Satellite TV, attractive rooms, a/c, pool, and complimentary shuttle to the beach. 415-652-6051, or 114.20907. Moderate to Deluxe
El Encanto Inn -- Downtown. 12 standard rooms, 3 junior suites and 4 suites with kitchenettes & patios. All rooms have TV, telephone, whitewashed furniture and bathrooms with walk-in tile showers. No smoking in rooms. Nice value. 877-678-5854. Moderate
Casa Terracotta (Bed & Breakfast) -- South of town on hill overlooking the surfing beaches of Playa Costa Azul (known for the break called "Zippers"). 4 casitas & 1 large palapa for groups are available. 2 casitas have dedicated detached bathrooms, 1 more identical with attached bath and better view of the coast. A larger casita is now available with a great view and a king bed constructed to easily become two-twins. The palapa accommodations are priced "per head" and include cots, dividers, bath area, separate access, parking and breakfast (after casita guests have been served). The hosts here are quite gracious and spend considerable attention on food & drink quality and preparation. The tropical grounds offer a sitting/napping area great for whale or bird watching. Impressive. 114.24250 Budget (Palapa), Moderate to Deluxe (Casitas)
Huerta Verde (Bed & Breakfast) -- North of town, and about a mile east of the highway, this small location is getting more popular every year (and the prices are getting higher as well). The snazzier rooms would be worthy of honeymooners looking for a semi-secluded getaway that might not be on a beach. It's secluded, close to town (long walk or short drive), but not anywhere close to other visitors/tourists in the area. New suites with kitchenettes built in March of '97 are now available. 303-431-5162 in USA. Ultra-Deluxe
Places to eat:
For small inexpensive mom-and-pop type places, it's necessary to walk up Morelos or Vicario (Morelos is the street going north from the signal in town, Vicario parallels it on the east side). There are numerous restaurants with quality food at budget prices. On Vicario you'll find an item popular in the southern peninsula: Papas Rellenos (stuffed baked potatoes) with many different choices of "filling." Interesting. Also:
Peacock's (Pavo Real) -- Near the entrance to the Mel�a San Lucas. Competent, worthwhile, but not overly-impressive gourmet menu. Good margaritas. Moderate
The Office -- Located directly on Medano Beach between the Hacienda Hotel and the Mel�a San Lucas. There are three restaurants located on the beach here where you can dine at tables actually on the sand (feel free to dig your toes in). This one in particular has lasted the longest, and offers a competently done selection of seafood and chicken specialties. Thursday nights they have a fiesta show at dinner time. Moderate
Mi Casa -- If you ask around these days, everyone's recommending Mi Casa (and have been for a few years now). I don't think it lives up to that much hype, but the food here is quite good. Like so many of the better restaurants in Los Cabos these days, you enter through the main building out onto a busy, bustling and buzzing back patio restaurant, this one highlighted with furniture in bright pastel colors (or is that an oxymoron?). On the menu are differing traditional dishes from various regions of M�xico, including Chicken Mole. Prices here are fairly good by Cabo standards now as well. The ownership is the same as the above listed Peacock's. Deluxe
La Republica -- Steaks, lamb, seafood, chicken on the menu at this elegant outdoor restaurant in a surprisingly hidden location on Morelos. Quite a find. Nice wine selection. Service can be erratic however. Deluxe
El Pescador -- Been here a long time. Small palapa roofed place a block behind El Squid Roe, near the Las Margaritas Inn. Very good seafood restaurant. Shrimp, caracol, fish, oysters from Todos Santos, octopus, crab... all on the menu. Moderate
Capo San Giovanni -- Located near Cabo Wabo on Guerrero, and serving a very authentic Italian menu. Pasta, chicken, veal, salads, and fish. There's a small wine list with mostly Italian choices. Gracious hosts. Moderate to Deluxe
Sancho Panza -- Jazz/wine/cigar/coffee bar with a short, but impressive Mediterranean/Latin menu that changes twice a month and an impressive wine list including wines by the glass (Mount Xanic and Camou, both labels of excellent reputation from the northern Baja peninsula are represented here, as well as wine from the upcoming wine "region" in the USA of Walla Walla, Washington. Of course there are wines from Europe and California as well). The ambiance here is classy combined with a little funk, kind of like jazz music itself. Open from 1p.m.-11p.m., closed Sunday. Live jazz from 7:30-10 each night. Tel#: 114.33212 Moderate to Deluxe
Restaurant Fiesta Bar & Grill -- Simple, clean place with a wide variety on the menu of basic items for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Need an early breakfast, or have the late, late night munchies? This place is open 24 hours, and located one long block due west of Squid Roe. In March of 2000 they offered a special of 4 tacos (any type) and a beer for US$4.00 Budget to Moderate
Blue Agave Bar & Grill -- A gourmet restaurant for a youthfully-aged clientele. Slogan: "Upscale, but not Uptight." Prices are a bargain for gourmet food in Los Cabos. Available are selections of fish, shrimp, pork and chicken, as well as a scallop & fennel ravioli. The "Agave Fillet" is a grilled fillet in cabernet glaze over wild mushroom, potato & black olive hash, accompanied by grilled asparagus tips. Located upstairs inside Plaza Bonita. On weekends live bands perform into the wee hours of the night. Moderate to Deluxe
El Coral -- In a town where restaurants come and go, the El Coral lives on (since 1975). An original of the open-patio corner restaurants on Blvd. Marina. Serving seafood and steaks, the "Lobster Combo" special still goes for US$10. Going fishing while you're in town? They'll cook your catch and serve it to you at a reasonable cost. Budget to Moderate
Marisqueria Mazatl�n (Mariscos) -- I prefer this new seafood restaurant over the old-standby Mariscos Mocambo. Opened in February 2000 and located east of downtown, next to the 'El Arco' arch replica near the Pemex. Fish & shrimp served in numerous ways. Budget
Brasil Steakhouse -- In subdued colors of the Brazilian flag (green & yellow), with a picturesque raised canopy and grill up front, open-air patio up the stairs in back. All-you-can-eat from the menu for under US$20. Filet mignon, sirloin steak, New York steak, rib eye, pork loin, ribs, chicken and ham. Deluxe
Gardenias Restaurant (Tacos) -- Simply done. Tacos... your choice. Fish, shrimp, BBQbeef, nopal (cactus), BBQpork, and chicken. Near the Marina Sol Condo complex east of downtown. Open 8am-8pm. Ultra-Budget
Cabo Bistro -- Didn't get a chance to eat here, but the menu is innovative and interesting. Worth investigating. Located near the Pemex east of downtown (and across from McDonald's). Deluxe
Da Georgio II -- km 6 at the Misiones del Cabo. Italian menu, with seafood specialties. Good margaritas, and the best thing there: the sunset view overlooking town and "El Arco." Not to be missed, even if you just go there for a drink. Moderate to Deluxe
Pitahayas -- Located at the Hacienda del Mar Hotel inside the Cabo del Sol complex (about km. 10). I generally shy away from suggesting hotel restaurants, but this is a different story (as is Da Georgio II above). "Pacific Rim" cuisine... essentially a mix of Asian and California cuisine. Most tables and the kitchen facility with its wood-burning grill are outside under a very high and wide palapa roof. The restaurant fronts the quite scenic beach here. Examples of some of the offerings: Shrimp potsticker appetizer with dumplings of shrimp, shitake mushroom & water chestnut, with passion fruit & black bean garlic sauce; veal scallopini & blue crab meat, star anise & cabernet sauce. Vegetarian entrees are offered as well. A mango cheesecake was also available. Deluxe
Damiana -- One of the most romantic restaurants in the entire Los Cabos area. Oh, and the food's spectacular as well. It's an old converted hacienda/home with just a few tables on the inside, and a quite a few tables on the preferable back patio, all candlelit. If you don't make a reservation here, you may not get preferable seating, if in at all. Deluxe
La Cenadur�a -- A twofold menu. One of inexpensive typical Mexican plates such as tamales, enchiladas, burritos, pozole, etc. The other of house specialties (for just a couple of dollars more) such as Filete Siete Puertas (Seven Ports Fish), shrimp machaca, and fish with poblano chile salsa. Meat and chicken specialties are on the menu and there are daily specials as well. Excellent atmosphere, with an outside patio in back with high palapa roof. It's a large area with only 8 tables. Excellent value. Budget to Moderate
Tequila Garden Restaurant -- Very nice back patio restaurant. The patio is open and tropical, furniture is handmade, tables glass-topped and candlelit. Very romantic. Menu items include: Grilled catch of the day in vinegar & cilantro sauce; chicken breast "Nicola," grilled with cilantro pesto; penne "Arabiata," with roma tomatoes, dried peppers, basil and shaved parmesan; beef tenderloin with dried peppers & cabernet sauch; and the house specialty, Tequila Shrimp, with plantains, black beans, in tequila sauce (ingredients, I'm told are simply lemon, garlic, butter and tequila). Deluxe
La Provence -- Mediterranean garden restaurant. Similar setup to Damiana with a few tables inside, and a larger patio in back. A little bit brighter powder-blue decor though, a 9' water fountain, and a small aviary (OK, a large bird cage) as well. The chef/owner here is formerly of the nearby Westin Regina Resort. Deluxe
Municipal Market -- Good outside food vendor stands (loncher�as), and fruit vendor stands that make fruit smoothies (licuados). Ultra-Budget to Budget
Mi Cocina -- On the plaza, near Damiana Restaurant. New restaurant with a fairly creative menu. Food is impressively prepared. Pasta, seafood, chicken & beef fillet dishes to choose from. The Filete Roquefort is a beef fillet served on a blue cheese & chipotle sauce. Moderate to Deluxe
Ristorante da Antonio -- Located right on the San Jose water estuary at the Hotel Presidente Intercontinental. Wonderful location, with a classy, white-tablecloth, ambiance. Serving pasta, grilled fish, snapper, beef tenderloin, chicken & veal dishes. Deluxe
Che Gaucho -- Argentinian steakhouse away from the crowds by a couple of blocks (on Juarez, west of Morelos). Serving grilled steak & chicken, pasta and pizzas. Pleasant atmosphere either inside under the palapa roof, or out on the interesting large back garden-patio with only a few tables. Nice. Opened in late 1999. Moderate
Taqueria Erika -- Near the highway on Doblado. Cranking out inexpensive carne asada tacos all night long until 5am. Very popular. Ultra-Budget
Pescaderia Restaurant -- A favorite of locals and long-time visitors alike. Hard to find. On the highway across from Baja Cellular office. Palapa up-front and very nice & expansive stone-walled open-air back-patio with the grill & bar. Specials daily. Standard menu items include red snapper, shrimp, octopus, calamari, scallops, crab and seafood cocktails. Wine is favored by much of the clientele, but selection is limited. Service can be erratic. An inexpensive and creative meal can be had here simply by ordering only appetizers (including the smoked tuna). Moderate to Deluxe
Cafe Florentina -- Classy brick-walled courtyard restaurant across the street from the Mission and next to Hotel Ceci. Romantic atmosphere with candlelit tables and water fountains. Example item: Spiedini de Gamberi, Jumbo shrimp stuffed with Roquefort cheese, wrapped in bacon, prepared with white wine & cream sauce... served with pasta. Deluxe
Things to do:
La Playita -- Nice beach area east of San Jos� downtown. Away from the hotel scene.
Rural Coastal Road -- As of 3/99 the entire road was easily passable in any small 2wd vehicle. Los Frailes and Cabo Pulmo (as well as the other numerous secluded white-sand beaches) along this stretch define the pre-tourist days on the Cape. The road runs from San Jos� to La Ribera, just south of Buena Vista. The paved road from La Ribera that ends abruptly just north of Cabo Pulmo was built in 1991-1992. I hear the funds are now in place to complete it through to Cabo Pulmo, and possibly further now (as of March, 2000).
Todos Santos -- is about 50 miles north of San Lucas. A rent-a-car, bus, or your thumb should get you there easily. See associated link for more info.
Playa del Amor -- "Lover's Beach" out by El Arco, San Lucas. Best ways to get there: a water taxi, or glass-bottom boat.
Pez Gato Sunset Cruise -- Either the party ("booze") cruise, or the romantic cruise, you choose. One's quieter, one livelier. Leaves from the San Lucas marina. Takes you out to Land's End on a catamaran or trimaran, and all the beer, margaritas, and tequila poppers you can consume are included in the price. Good way to start the evening if you pass on happy-hour in town. Excellent way to meet people as well (party cruise). Note: I'm hearing good things about the partying "Reggae Jungle Cruise" that offers a similar service at sunset as well.
Note: If it's nightlife you want, then San Lucas is the place. Here's the best to be found:
Start with the aforementioned Sunset Cruise, or hit happy-hour at the Rio Grill, with great margarita specials not to be missed, and the crowd there shouldn't be missed either.
From there it's off to the Giggling Marlin. Kick-back, enjoy people-watching. There's a dance show usually around 9 p.m. Either after the show (or before, you choose), head on over to the place that just doesn't want to stop: El Squid Roe. If you want to dance on tables to the latest music, with the youngest crowd, this is the place. The Giggling Marlin plays older rock n' roll if that's what you prefer, but that crowd must not be able to stay up late, as the GM closes down hours before El Squid Roe does sometime after 3 a.m. El Squid Roe was remodeled and slightly expanded in 1998, then in 1999 it was expanded and remodeled again to accommodate the late-night crowd. The transformation from a restaurant to a nightclub these days is amazing. I think a night in Squid Roe beats professional therapy, is much less expensive, and probably accomplishes similar goals.
Another place earlier in the evening worth checking out for the social possibilities is Carlos n' Charlie's (owned by the same group that owns El Squid Roe). More of a restaurant/bar, than nightclub, but has an outdoor sand volleyball court. The big newcomer to the nightclub scene in San Lucas is Kokomo's Cabo (same people own Kokomo Havasu in Arizona), located about a block or so from Squid Roe. The owners of Kokomo's have been taking measures that make it worthy to add to the list of the above, and the crowds there attest to the fun to be found there.
Worth watching is another newcomer showing itself quite popular on weekends with live bands playing into the late-night hours: Blue Agave Bar & Grill in Plaza Bonita. The old Planet Hollywood is being transformed into another nightclub as well and is expected to open in April 2000.
Beware: There're also adult(erous?) aspects running rampant in CSL. Being a resort area with a lot of money flowing through it, not only do all of the beach vendors from the mainland show up hawking wares, so do the girls in search of money from free spending tourists. There are at least 3 clubs with exotic dancers, a new (in 2000) escort service advertising its services in the local tourist publications (and the internet). Just a couple blocks away from El Squid Roe on a small side-street, ladies-of-the-night ply their trade at and across the street from the orange-walled Toro Bravo Bar & Grill. Gentlemen should also beware of women pickpockets in town, sometimes they'll wait to get you after your pants are down. <g>
