Muy tranquilo
Casandiego

The water on the East Cape is pristine, one of the world's richest ecosystems and home to diverse species of whales and fish.
It seems like a world away from from the crowds of Cabo San Lucas but it's only a 50 minute drive from the airport to Hotel Palmas de Cortez and Los Barriles, and the beautiful Sea of Cortez.
Arrange transportation through the hotel when you reserve a room.
When you get through customs and immigration at the San Jose Del Cabo airport, you will walk through crowds of drivers both inside and out in the parking lot, all trying to get you to go with them, some of them scam artists. Save yourself some confusion and walk right out to your waiting driver.
Although the hotel caters to deep sea fishermen and includes room/ fishing packages, anyone who loves a tranquil vacation spot will find plenty to enjoy.
An infinity pool with a swim up pool bar, a giant hot tub and a deep quiet smaller pool are great places to relax.
But oh! The beach ! Deep luxurious sand. Clear, warm turquoise water.
There is a rather steeply slanted entry which gets deep with just a few steps.
The bottom is coarser sand and pebbles, safe for bare feet.
The breakfast venue is a buffet line with typical fare: good pancakes, eggs, bacon, a Mexican -style casserole, open til 11 am.
From 11 on, the Bay View at the other end of the hotel takes over. Don't pass up fresh fish tacos and some amazing guacamole for lunch.
The Bay View will prepare and deliver your lunch order to the pool bar if you like, which I did like.
I ate nightly at the Bay View and was never disappointed. With fresh seafood coming to the docks nightly and fresh vegetables grown in the higher valleys nearby, the chef has lots to work with.
They offered ceviche, calamari with a piquant spicy salsa dip, decent pasta, fish of the day with several choices of topping and some delicious Baja- style Mexican dishes.
A lovely delightful place to relax,recharge and enjoy. Quiet interrupted only by the sounds of the birds. Made even better by the gracious and friendly staff. I'll be back.

I took a solo trip to Palmas de Cortez in July 2019 to relax and fish for 3 days. I hadn’t been to the resort since the late 90’s and, needless to say, a lot had changed...in a positive way. I was greeted at the front desk by very cordial staff and quickly checked In and shown to my nice clean and cool room. After cooling off for a bit (it was very warm and humid during my stay) I decided to explore the property and see what had in 20+ years. I was delighted to see a large palapa bar both adjacent to and extending into the pool area, added rooms and a new restaurant (Bay View Restaurant I believe). I happily settled into a chair at the bar under the palapa for a drink or two. The next day I made my way to the breakfast buffet (which happened to be right next to my room) for a fresh buffet breakfast coffee and Juice. Everything was freshly prepared, warm and to my liking (eggs, potatoes, bacon...etc.). After breakfast I took a casual stroll along the beach, enjoying the refreshing morning ocean air, to the dock to board the first boat I would be fishing on my 3 day trip, “El Chureya.” Long story short, the captain and deckhand in “El Chureya” were great and carved out a nice day of fishing for me with 6 Dorado and 2 yellowfin tuna. I kept one of the smaller Dorado and had it filleted so that I could take it to the Bay View and have it prepared for my dinner that evening. Staff at the Bay View was excellent and they promptly took my Dorado fillets and refrigerated them for me until I returned for dinner about 4 hours later to enjoy my well prepared blackened Dorado, beans, rice and tortillas. The next two days I fished the boat “El Borracho”. Again, the captain and deckhand on “El Borracho” were excellent! The 2nd day the waters were pretty rough but we caught and released a striped marlin. The 3rd day we lost one sailfish and managed to catch and release two striped marlin. The deckhand (I believe his name was Leo) and I shared some good laughs and had a great time. I was impressed with how well the captain ran the boat while trolling, hooking up and backing down on the fish when it was necessary. Anibal at the fishing office was outstanding and very professional about everything each evening I went in to place my lunch and drink order and see what boat I would be fishing. He was also there on the dock each morning making sure everyone safely boarded their boats in a very timely fashion without having to wait very long at all. I would say Anibal managed the dock very well each morning and got fisherman promptly on their way. To sum it up, I will definitely be back again soon to fish and relax at the Palmas de Cortez!
