    Hi ladies,

    Didn't want to clog up the Cabo wedding forum with my post, since this is just a general travel question...

    DH and I are considering a trip to Cabo and staying at the Misiones resort. Has anyone heard of this resort or had any experience with it? It's outside of downtown Cabo about 4 miles towards Todos Santos. I searched the board and found one post about there being a nice quiet swimmable beach at the resort, and also a nice restaurant.

    Here are my other Cabo questions:
    1) is the water warm or cold?
    2) what's a good company to rent a car from, and is there parking at the major tourist attractions (e.g. if we want to go to Mango Deck, will we be able to get parking somewhere near it?)
    3) what are some "must see" or "must dos" in Cabo that you would recommend?
    4) are there places to rent surf boards or is it better to bring out own?

    Thanks so much ladies :) Happy new year!! Good luck to all the 2010 brides!

      Hi Janet.
      I'm not too familiar with Misiones resort, but do know that Todos Santos is at least 40min-1hr away from Cabo San Lucas.
      To answer a few of your other questions:

      1) Depending on what time of the year u go, but for the most part the weather in Cabo is pretty warm so it keeps the water warm during the day.

      2)There are many car rental places inside the airport, but make sure u use the companies that are still within the airport sliding doors and not the time share people that are immediately outside the sliding doors once u pass customs. My suggestion would be to book your car rental in the US to avoid all the time share hassels.

      3)There isn't anything I've done in cabo that has dissapointed me in 4yrs. I'm a big foodie so if it comes to food I would recommend the following restaurants: Mi Casa (best authentic mexican food, I think), Golondrinas (good food, ambiance, and outside setting), Sunset Da Mona Lisa (is a MUST in my opinion....great food and breathtaking views).

      4) Sorry...not much of a surfer, so I wouldnt know how to answer this one

      I hope this helps! Good luck :o)

        Thank you Liz. Yes we are big foodies too, so I'll make sure to write those restaurants down and check em out when we go down.

        I've read you can rent a Jeep, but when I go on the major car rental websites, they only have options for SUVs generally? Do you call the rental company directly to book a Jeep?

          Yes, you might have to call the company directly and let them know specifically what kind of car you want...because the times that we have rented cars we do it on-line and just select "compact car" and we get whatever is available when we arrive. Hope you have a GREAT time on your first trip to Cabo Let me know how it goes.
