      Hi there.

      There about 15 kms away, Marquis is on the corridor and Cabo Surf is right in the entrance to San Jose; about the cab fare... Honestly, I would rent a car or take a bus, cab fares are way too expensive in cabo.

      For example, if you take a cab from San Jose to Cabo San Lucas, which are 40 minutes aways from one another, they charge a friend of mine USD $80.00 PER PERSON... So, if you can rent a car, rent it.

        I agree with the last comment, Taxis in Cabo are too expensive, not worth what they charge.

        I'd rent a car, just drive safely and watch for some cars as they sometmes drive faster than most, drive defensively and you'll be just fine. It's not like driving in the U.S., but the roads here are quite good and it is a 4-lane highway, so it isn't like you're in some backward country. Just take the toll-highway from the airport, don't venture going through San Jos©, you'll be stuck in traffic, it isn't worth it. It's a very nice newly-paved highway, about 10 miles. That connects with the outskirts of San Jos©, and from there just take a right and head down to your hotel, I believe you will be staying at the Marqu­s, a very nice choice, really nice. Their food is fantastic and the place is a dream for couples, very secluded.

        If you take the bus, just be ready to have a somewhat rocky ride, that all. They are very, very safe, but the service is a little rough, and you'll have to do lots of walking and crossing the 4-lane can be risky because cars sometimes pass really fast. Not saying it's bad to take the bus, it's good, but just be safe and watch REALLY well as you cross the road. People are nice but the busses aren't exactly 1st class.

          I just measured the distance on Google Earth and the distance on the highway between The Marquis and Cabo Surf is 5 miles. I would NOT avoid San Jose del Cabo as it is a very cool colonial town and a world apart from from Cabo San Lucas. I live on the beach just outside of San Jose and pass through everyday with little traffic issues.

          Yes renting a car is probably your best option but if you will only be venturing to the Cabo Surf a few times I would taxi. The bus is frequently infrequent but cheap ($1.50).

            That's a good point from Bradley, don't miss out on what San Jos© offers, it is very different from San Lucas, quieter and somewhat colonial, a nice twist to your trip and worth seeing, specially where the main square is...the big church. Wow, didn't know one could measure distances through Google, but that sounds about right...actually, quite accurate.

            ps. and if you take the bus, just watch for fast-coming cars when crossing the streets, specially on the corridor highway, you never know when a Phitippaldi-like driver might pass at that time. Be safe and enjoy your stay in Cabo, you'll enjoy your stay
