My impulse is to get irritated by it.

I have to mood regulate.

But it can be done.

Too bad you don't drink no more.

That really helps me.


I’ve been there before. I sort of lived in the marina for 3 months and making trips to the Revillagigedos to photograph mantas sharks, dolphins, etc.

But that was 1996. We shot film, drank Modelo out of the can and hose water from the marina, and we smoked El Faros.

Cabo has changed a lot in the last 15 years.

We saw the Palms Springs-by-the-Sea aspect coming, and it's as bad or worse now. So much development outside of town now, it amazing.

Go out to the east cape or up the west side to surf, and just party in Cabo at night and call it a trip.

The good ol' days of cheap and dirty Cabo are gone.

Yes I’m aware of all this. We won’t really be surfing in CSL proper. We don’t even have a place yet so not really sure where we’re staying.

Like I said, some friends invited me and it sounded like fun. I haven’t been on a surf trip with “just the boys” in 25 years.

It’s either been with the wife, which is great but the surfing part is, well, just a part (wife surfs but, unlike me she likes to other stuff too) or solo.

As for partying...not my thing. Do they still have donkey shows?

And what about the waves? Is the surf there any good? Crowded? Packed with “locals” from Texas?

Monuments, Zippers etc. are fine. Most of the locals are friendly. I'm assuming if you act like turd you might have issues. San Jose Del Cabo is much better than Cabo proper. Wine walk on Thursday nights at San Jose Del Cabo are fun. Drive over to Todos Santos and have lunch and surf the Todos/Cerritos area. Sample some Mezcal.

Thanks for the info. We’ll a driver so we can pretty much go wherever we want whenever we want.

I don’t drink but the guys I’m going with do. I’ll pass on the info about that to them...
