  Don't Swim Here!!!
by grkboiler

Please do not swim at the Pacific Ocean beaches in Cabo. People drown there every year and many others still do not listen to warnings. The undertow is terrible, and the waves can throw you against the rocks. The Mexican authorities do not like pulling bodies from the water. If you go to a beach on the Pacific side, lay in the sun or check out the rock formations, even if you are an experienced swimmer.

The beaches on the Sea of Cortez side are very safe most of the time and beach conditions are posted at most hotels.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
