    This outfit is truly exceptional- Fergus, Tom & Pablo were consummate professionals who ensured our safety while creating a fun environment for the whole group. We felt safe & well-cared for at ALL times; their patience and compassion for us was reassuring, especially for a few people who were quite nervous about the dive. My daughter was able to complete her Advanced Open Water course with this crew and they made it a seamless experience. Loved our adventure both beneath and above the surface! Highly recommend!

    First time in San Jose del Cabo and went on a half day trip with Pablo. He has lived here his whole life and his experience showed. Everything was handled so well. We caught Skipjack, Red Snapper and a beautiful Rooster fish. Would definitely recommend Abigail for your fishing adventure.

    What an absolutely wonderful experience. We contacted hydro flyboard to celebrate a friends 50th birthday. It was an outstanding experience. The coach was very safe, very encouraging, and very effective in getting us into the air and making sure we had a fantastic time. He went out of his way to accommodate our schedule (including a holiday weekend!) A very unusual and exciting adventure - made me feel like a kid again! SO MUCH FUN. Definitely give Hydro flyboard a call when in the cabos area!!!!!

    We had a family emergency down in Cabo. I contacted Pako late at night to request a pick up service for my husband next day. Pako was so helpful answering all my questions and getting everything arranged for my husband. Thank you so much for your help and great service. We were extremely happy. We will call you guys again. Feliz Año 🎆 🎉

    For anglers looking for a GREAT fishing experience at AFFORDABLE prices, Angeles Fleet CANNOT be beat! I've been out with them at least a half-dozen times now. The ONLY folks I will fish with in Los Cabos! Gustavo owns the company. Henner handles orders/marketing. Carlos is my reliable cap/guide. David is a cap/mate as well. Wonderful people. They've NEVER disappointed. I fish in lots of places around the world. These folks are among the BEST! And you will NOT find a better bargain! Cerveza/agua included! You keep the catch! (I only take a meal or two's worth; leave rest). An AMAZING value! We're like family now, I've been back so many times! Give em a try! You WON'T be disappointed. Trust me!

    Captain Hollywood was awesome …10 mins to the fishing ground, I hook up to the biggest marlin in my life. I would recommend him for fishing trip. He’s willing to teach you and try his best to put you on fish. I had a great day and made great memories.

    Round trip private transportation in a Suburban each way from airport to Le Blanc. Drivers were punctual, polite and safe, courteous drivers. Service was built into our package so not sure on cost. Tipped $20 each way and the driver seemed appreciative.

    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!

    I didn't expect to enjoy this experience nearly as much as we did, but everything was absolutely first rate. The owner/guides were clear, fun, and hit a perfect balance between caution and encouragement. The machines were in great shape and performed exactly as described ahead of time. The location! It would be difficult for a tourist to access these locations by other means, and they were great - uninhabited coastline, dry riverbeds, and coastal mountains. The trails were very interesting - a few steep climbs and descents that took some guts for a noob, but the guides were spot-on with what we had to do. So, timid drivers may have some trouble at points, but most of the trip could be handled by most people.

    The lunch stop was amazing - great food with a great view. All along the way, guides made sure everyone had enough to drink.

    So far, there are 76 reviews and all are 5's. I'm going to add #77.

    We booked a party of 14 for our Spring Break girls and they had a BLAST.... I'm a huge Trip Advisor person so I pulled up the review's and noticed that they were all positive.. From them picking us up at the Casa Dorado in Cabo, surfing , hanging at the beach it was so much fun. They stopped on the way and let us pick up extra snacks and beer as well. I wish I could remember all of their names but from each surf instructor to Marco taking photo's they were so professional and made it a great experience for our girls and us. Make sure you spend the extra money on the pictures because Marco caught every fun moment even the parents watching on the beach...

    We did the Scuba Diving tour with Arturo as our guide. We had an absolutely amazing time and it was hands down the highlight of our trip to Cabo. If you like adventure this is a must and worth every penny. We had a fantastic day. The Scuba Diving company provided transportation to and from our hotel (which was so helpful as it was an hour and a half drive each way.) We were beginners and the instruction lesson was very detailed and clear. The tour included two seperate dives and the first one included a safety session. We got to see all kinds of amazing things on the dives.... Cabo Pulmo is absolutely stunning. We felt totally safe with Arturo. He was a patient attentive teacher that made us feel comfortable and tailored the dives to our comfort level and experience. Arturo stayed right beside us the entire time and was constantly checking in with us on how we were doing. The actual tour was stunning... I can't do proper justice on how beautiful it is down there. The company was also concerned for the National Park and gave instructions on how to ensure we didn't cause damage to the park or sea life we were observing. Following the dives we had an amazing Mexican lunch. It was probably one of the best meals we had on the whole trip. The food was amazing, the staff were very kind and the setting was beautiful (outside under a covered deck attached to the restaurant.) Following the lunch we were tsken back to our hotel and the driver was really friendly. All in all a 10/10 experience. I can't say enough good things and we will definitely be back one day. Thanks so much for the wonderful day!

    We had another excellent outing on the Wake Up. We had good action with bonitos with my wife and nephew catching a few. The crew however never gave up and tried different baits until we hit paydirt with a nice Striped Marlin trolling on the way back! It was a great time and we are ready for next year.

    I visited Cabo for the first time back in July of 2018... This was the first activity we did as a family and it was beyond amazing. I became good friends with the staff. The food was amazing! Best Atv you can do in Cabo. Other places feel like they just want your money but Rancho Madrigal makes it feel like your part of their family and make it feel like home. I will be visiting Cabo again this summer and will definitely go here again, very worth it.

    If you like the idea of a 1 hour ride on the beach, or a more adventurous 2 hour ride in the hills along the estuary, Bonanza is the place to visit.

    First and most important, the horses are very well looked after, and the riding tackle is always in good condition. The two main guides, Lencho and Enrique are excellent and, in addition to a fun ride, can fill you in on the background of the area.

    Bonanza has quite a few (~ 20 or so) horses, and Aaron (owner) Lencho and Enrique know the horses personality, and match the rider to the horse. Even pretty young children can be accommodated, either on a horse of their own, or riding tandem with an adult.

    One tip. Wear jeans or long shorts when riding, your thighs will appreciate it.-:)

    Don't forget, if you enjoyed your ride, remember to tip them. That's a big part of their income.

    Rental payment is cash, no CC, either US$ or peso is fine.

    We have been riding with Bonanza for over 5 years now,and thoroughly recommend it.
