With its relatively easy, consistent, warm-water waves, delicious food and drinks, a beautiful desert landscape coupled with historic landmarks, condos and shopping malls and its proximity to ever-growing Southern California, it's no wonder the area around Cabo San Lucas has become a kind of surfing Disneyland. Here are the top 2 spots we would recommend:
Costa Azul (http://www.wannasurf.com/spot/Central_America/Mexico/Baja_Sur/costa_azul/) is located just outside San Jose del Cabo on the Sea of Cortez and has several breaks: Acapulcito, The Rock (http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/the-rock-southern-baja_6117/travel/), and Zippers (http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/zippers-southern-baja_6118/travel/). Long rides, shallow water, and consistent waves make this an ideal location for learning how to surf! The summer months are the best time to surf here, but don't let that fool you - the surfing season at Costa Azul spans from March until October.
Los Cerritos (http://www.surfline.com/surf-report/cerritos-southern-baja_6114/travel/) The serene beauty of Los Cerritos Beach can be found approximately 45 minutes north of Cabo, on the Pacific Ocean. Recent development has seen this area explode lately, with the addition of boutique hotels, restaurants, and activity rentals. Los Cerritos surf beach has a gentle sloping beach and a sand bar farther out where the waves break and is where we go surfing during the winter months. Conveniently, a full service restaurant will serve you on the beach without having to leave your chair!
