Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We really enjoyed diving with the East Cape Explorers! The shop was very well organized and had friendly and helpful staff so we could focus on enjoying the dives. The boat was comfortable and we had water and snacks on board. Before getting into the water we were always well briefed about the dive sites. There are a lot of really nice dive sites in the corridor. Close to the dive shop there are also two nice restaurants for a good Mexican lunch after the morning dives.

    Surf in Cabo has created and maintains a culture of good vibes, honesty, inclusivity, safety, and fun at Costa Azul. My wife and I live in Colorado, and had an incredible opportunity to stay in San Jose del Cabo from January through April this year. David, Fernando, Rocco, the other David, Wendy, Chris, the part-time instructors, and Mario the photographer treated us like friends from the day that we arrived. I have to mention Roquito and Belu, as well, the 10-year-old ripper and his little brother, who would go from playing in the waves one minute to tossing a football on the beach with us the next. Surfing at one of the four Costa Azul breaks several days per week, we were always heartily welcomed by all of them. They were very generous to us throughout our entire stay, offering up pointers on surfing, conditions at the local breaks and across the region, and with the use of their facilities. Having spent nearly four months there, I came to know that it wasn’t just us, either. They treated every visitor to the beach and to their shop with the utmost respect, kindness, and compassion, all while maintaining an upbeat, exciting, and fun beach/surf atmosphere. The mean-spirited surf attitude that we’ve encountered at other breaks across the world just doesn’t exist at Pescadito Break, the awesome, gentle break nearest to Surf in Cabo, and it can be attributed to the welcoming, generous, and kindhearted attitudes of the shop and its staff. We had several friends and family visit throughout our stay who received fun and successful surf lessons and extremely reasonable prices on rentals and purchases, including many great action pictures of the kids surfing. It is a testament to the vibe of Surf in Cabo that the beach and the breaks there are all about fun, kindness, and sharing the wonders of the sea with the entire community at Costa Azul!

    Our guides were patient, and made everyone feel comfortable. This is a top notch operation, with excellent equipment. You will not be disappointed. Chilleno bay is gorgeous and there are lots of fish all over the place. It was an amazing experience that I'm glad I had a chance to get under the water.

    Thanks

    My husband and I have tried surfing before, and this trip we decided to try a body boarding lesson. I found it to be much easier to pick up (and less tiring to paddle out) than surfing. Our guide, Alfredo, was clearly an expert! He met us at the beach and set up a spot for us with lounge chairs and an umbrella. After a few quick instructions, we headed out into the surf. Alfredo kept a keen eye on the ocean and would tell us when to start kicking. We caught several waves - More than any of the surfers who were floating nearby! It was such a rush and a good workout, as well. Three hours gives you a relaxed schedule, with time to rest on the beach and sip cerveza in between sets. I would definitely recommend La Bocana for a body boarding adventure in San Jose del Cabo!

    I had a good day out sport fishing. This was something I have wanted to for a long time and decided to take a chance and booked a trip with Salty's through Jose Luis Gracia Conterras of Amazing Tours.

    Captain Hollywood was a knowledgeable and FUN guide. He was patient and taught me all I needed to do to have a successful trip including BEING patient. And patience it took as the day wore on we did manage to get three Dorado on the line later in the day when most other charters had already given up. Unfortunately, through my own inexperience and mishandling, the first Dorado spit out the hook just as Captain Hollywood was about to gaff him. That was a bit disappointing but within minutes we got a couple of others on line and I made darn sure not to make that mistake again.

    All in all in was a great experience I'll never forget and I recommend Salty's. Very reasonably priced! Also, ask for Hollywood, he was very enjoyable to be around.

    A bit of a party boat, which was a bit of a surprise but it turned out to be a good experience. I needed a bit of help getting on and the crew made sure that happened. They were efficient and friendly and I appreciated it. They also made sure that I got a good seat.

    As advertised, the cruise lasted 21/2 hours and was great value. The dinner was definitely not gourmet but it was well prepared and plentiful. We got up close to The Arches and they gave us a good overview of the area. The sunset was amazing with lots of opportunities to take photos or to just enjoy the beauty.

    The tequila shots, fiesta music and dancing on the top deck all became part of the experience.

    Best part: the view with the friendly and willing staff right up there.

    Disappointment: no sea lions. I had been hoping to see some.
