    So, the 405 Freeway in LA is closing down for a weekend next month, getting away for that weekend...going to Cabo. Only been there as a cruise ship drop off for a day.....

    any general recommendations? mainly looking to drink and party.

    Cabo Wabo?
    Nikki Beach?
    Booze cruise?
    any good fish taco shacks?

    I just got back from Cabo on sunday.
    I've been going 3 times a year for the past four years... it's convenient and the food is great.
    Just go. But spend more time in San Jose del Cabo and less in Cabo san Lucas.

    Only going to be there 2 days. No car...., is there a good way to get to San Jose del Cabo? When I went on the cruise we went down to San Jose del Cabo.

    the hotel is right on the beach, some time share.


    Just looking to chill on beach, read kindle books, drink, jet-ski and have some good nightlife.

    is the water there good for swimming? white sand beach or is it rocky?


    any particular good restaurants to recommend? obviously loooking at mexican seafood.

    Rent a car, it's not a good idea to not have a car. The taxi fare for one long ride will be what you'll pay for a day or two of car rental.

    If you want nicer beaches you have to start at the tip then go towards San Jose, NOT towards Cabo San Lucas.

    this trip, its probably not realistic we're going to be renting a car.

    the primary purpose is to drink/party, maybe eat some good baja fish tacos. get some sun and tan. not interested in complicating things with a car rental, driving around with maps, getting lost, and having to deal with that stuff.

    I was just in L.A. and heard about the 405 closing. Having grown up in the area, I find this completely inconceivable. It'd be cool if people did fun things like throw block parties. But I suppose heading to Cabo San Lucas is a bit more exciting.

    So what happens if something goes wrong with the demolition and the freeway has to be closed on Monday?

    Have you seen the film Battle: Los Angeles? I imagine it will look similar to that

    anyway, went to cabo. the timeshare place we stayed at was really nice, right on Medano beach, but still walkable to downtown/marina.

    had some of the best tacos i've had ever there too...some nighttime hole in the wall...so good.....chorizo, cabeza, asada, al pastor...all really good...some of the best i've had. place was called taqueria el gran pastor. Also hit up Gordo Lele's which was higly rated on tripadvisor...it was ok, not as good as the other place though.

    hit up a few other places for tacos...it was hard to find the "baja" fish tacos where they were fried, mostly grilled tacos everywhere.

    favorite place to drink was the "happy ending bar". met sammy hagar over at cabo wabo, that was cool.
