First time traveling to Cabo with teenage boys in December

Would love to get a little bit of info for first time travelers to Cabo/San Jose with teenage boys over Christmas break. Looking for a mid range resort or something off the beaten path that isn't too touristy. Lots of options for sure, so trying to get a short list to at least start from. Hoping there are some families out there who have been and have some good recommendations. Thanks for the help!! : )

We started taking our two sons with us when they were teenagers. For us, we liked the Pacific Side (Solmar, Playa Grande, Finisterra etc.) because it was within walking distance yet far enough away from all of the nighttime craziness. Not that we didn’t like the clubs and Medano Beach but when we were ready to relax it was nice to get away from it. Security was tight at these resorts; if you do not belong there you do not get past the guards. Security also didn’t allow guests after a certain time. It just felt safer than town. One negative to them was that the beach is not swimmable. Our sons experienced so many things during those years and it was fun to enjoy them together. So I would recommend any resort or condo on the Pacific Side if you want to be just a little off the beaten path but close to it all.
