The way Cabo is situated on the map and the location of our resort on the peninsula meant that getting in the water was dangerous and prohibited. There is an area that you can get in the water on Cabo- it was about a mile from our resort so we didn't bother.
The waves were huge! They would gain momentum and get so tall that the weight of them would curl and then they would crash down. Our best guess is that they were 6 plus feet tall. They looked 10 feet tall to me!
Even though we couldn't get in the water, we did love hearing the waves, watching the tide come in, and walking in the white sand.
