    Airport Pick-up And Taxis
    (Taxi Stand At Coral Baja Entrance Nest Door)


    Transportation – Taxies and Shuttles

    -Aldo – Our recommended SUV Airport Transportation guy is $60 Each way (20 mins to El Zalate) Also Aldo speaks fluent English and will give you the latest Cabo Tourist update of what is happening. (011-521-(624-114-7102) (Cell), 146 0399 (Land Line) www.dunestt.com)
    -A private Taxi Flat Fee or rate is $55 from Airport to El Zalate Each Way (20 Mins to el zalate) Most Drivers speak very little English
    -A Shuttle will cost you $10-$12 per person
    – As soon as you leave the customs area, there will be a bunch of guys on the right side behind a counter, you can make arrangements there or when you get outside the terminal, there are more guys out there offering Shuttle Service (But Be careful – most of these guys will want to convince you to see a time share presentation and promise you a free ride to and from the airport – read the info in this http://www.6717000.com/cabo/suite402/rules.html to learn about the seedy Time Share business – Just say NO, I am not interested).
    Once you do buy your Shuttle Ticket you may have to wait 30 minutes until they fill up the Shuttle Van, also you may be the 1st one off or the last one off the Shuttle
    – If you are the first one, you will get to El Zalate in 30 minutes, If you are the last one, It can take up to two hours. Really, It is not worth all this hassle to save $30 in my opinion?
    BTW – the current rate of exchange is 16 Pesos to one US Dollar (July 2015
    )

    Overview of Los Cabos from Destino Magazine

    Los Cabos (the capes) is in the southern most tip of the State of Baja California Sur and consists of three main areas: Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo and the East Cape. In between, along the coast as well as inland, you will find smaller towns and points of interest such as Santiago and Miraflores.

    THE BAJA SUR LOOP
    If you look at the Baja Sur map you can see that the highways and towns form a loop. There are ongoing road improvements and new highway constructions, so getting from one place to another will only get easier. The new highway from Cabo San Lucas to Todos Santos is impressively well done, making it only 45 minutes away.

    Cabo San Lucas
    Also just known as “Cabo”, is a tourist friendly town located on the tip of the Baja California peninsula that’s full of entertainment for every age and liking. You will find the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meeting at land’s end and the beautiful rock formations that create the famous Cabo arch. Cabo San Lucas has the liveliest beach in the Los Cabos area, an impressive marina and countless restaurants and bars that keep the town alive day and night.

    The Corridor
    It's the 20 mile stretch between the two towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. It is where many of the hotel resorts, golf courses, and housing developments lie. When looking for real estate here in Cabo you will definitely have to consider the many projects situated either on the beach or back up into the mountains offering fantastic views of the Sea of Cortez.

    Whether you are looking for a 1 bedroom condo under 200k or a $2 million house the Cabo Corridor offers it all. If you want beachfront or just ocean views keep in mind this: the four lane highway creates a man made division between the beach and many of the houses and condos offered here in Cabo. Even though this might be a drawback in some people's eyes this is a HUGE benefit to others' pocketbooks because the prices are substantially lower on the other side of the highway, and many times the views of the water are better because you are higher up into the mountains.

    San José del Cabo
    Walking around San José will be more of a traditional Mexican town experience than Cabo San Lucas. You will find yourself surrounded by colorful buildings and quaint cobblestone streets that lead to the town’s picturesque zócalo (main plaza). Over the years, San José has become an artistic and cultural centre with numerous fine art galleries in its downtown art district. From November through June the popular “Art Walk” takes place every Thursday evening where the galleries welcome guests to view their exhibits, sip wine and dine at one of the five star restaurants. San José has a beautiful beach where you can take a horseback ride and explore the estuary that is home to many different bird species.

    Todos Santos
    Located on the Pacific Ocean side, Todos Santos is an oasis where artists and surfers flock to enjoy the culture and excellent surf. Home to the famous Hotel California, this charming town offers great restaurants and a cooler climate than Cabo San Lucas and San José due to the Pacific’s breezes.

    La Paz
    La Paz is the capital of the state of Baja California Sur and is known for its warm people and beautiful beaches. This authentic Mexican city (as well as the general south Baja region) has been rated as one of the safest in Mexico and still maintains the small town feel that is very welcoming for tourists. La Paz is a departure point for tours and charters to the stunning Espiritu Santo Island as well as whale watching excursions. Stroll down the colorful malecón (boardwalk), walk hundreds of feet in waist high water at Balandra beach or have a fine dining experience; La Paz has a lot to offer.

    East Cape
    People often call it “the old Cabo” because of its pristine beaches and small fishing towns such as Buena Vista and Los Barriles. The East Cape begins just east of San José and extends about 100 miles up the Sea of Cortez coast. 60 miles outside of San José is the Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park, an eight fingered coral reef that offers outstanding snorkelling and scuba diving. Very popular for fishing and surfing, the East Cape also attracts kite surfers and folks who just want to get away from it all. *


    Please go to important dialing instructions below. The cordless phone in the kitchen has both the Vonage line & the Local land line. This phone can reach to about the middle of the pool side.

    Cancellations and Refunds:
    When a booking is taken, full payment is required in U.S. funds. A refundable security deposit of $300 will be required on all properties. Reservations may be rescheduled anytime up to twelve weeks prior to arrival. Rescheduling is subject to a $100 fee. Cancellations are non-refundable.

    CLEANING;
    These premises were cleaned prior to your arrival and they will be thoroughly cleaned again on your departure. If you would like to have additional maid/cleaning service or laundry service during your stay, these can be provided by simply calling Nash Properties at 142-1195 (calling from local land line #2). Please do not hire the services of anyone that solicits you at the unit, as you do not know these individuals or their reputation. The typical extra charge for each clean is about $30. Please make direct arrangements with us at Nash Properties. If you were satisfied with the service the cleaners provided, tips would be appreciated upon your departure (we usually leave the cleaners $200 pesos – about $15 on the kitchen counter) The cleaners also appreciate any food that you did not use – you can leave it on the counter if you like instead of throwing it away. Any alcohol or wine that is in the fridge is also yours to use.

    El Zalate has gone green in May 2012 - Our building has just implemented a re cycling program. We installed a dual garbage canister in the kitchen area – one is for regular garbage, the other is for plastic (garbage bags are in the pantry as well as two other bins – one for glass & one for cardboard. You can drop off your recyclables in an area behind the building next to the garage.

    The suite gets dusty very quickly due to the proximity to the ocean. The owners have provided a host of cleaning products that are located in the entry closet. Please use wood wipes or pledge on all wood surfaces. Please use a wet cloth or Leather Wipes to wipe down leather on all couch surfaces, Stainless Steel Cleaner on all appliances, Granite Cleaner for all counters and Windex on outside patio table. Please do not use any cleaners on the TV monitors or computer monitor. The owners have supplied special Screen Cleaner that is located in the second drawer of the office desk. If you need to clean or wipe down the floors, there is also a bucket & a bunch of towel rags on the floor of the entry closet. The Swifter Duster works great on all surfaces & there are lots of refills. Please rinse all your dishes as the dishwasher does not have a garborator - you may need to clean out the filter area by doing a simply rinsing it out if the dishes are not getting thoroughly cleaned. The filter is located at the bottom of each drawer & slides out very easily.

    Please dispose the garbage on a daily basis. The garbage bins are located behind Villa 4 to the right of the underground Parkade Entrance - please refer to area map. This is very important - otherwise you will get little ants appearing on the kitchen counters & sinks. They are attracted to food, so do not leave anything that is not sealed properly on the counters or in the kitchen area. There are a lot of Ziploc Bags in the 3rd drawer.

    Extra towels are available under the beds in each bedroom. We have 8 full size Beach Towels in the Pantry Area, two Irons and an Ironing Board. Please return all towels to the suite upon your departure. We will charge your account $50 for each towel that goes missing. (We lose 4-6 towels a year & it is a hassle to replace them). Please do not bring any glass bottles to the pool side - it is against the bylaws - security will confiscate them. We have provided plastic drinking & plastic wine glasses for your convenience.

    Please note that if you found that the suite is clean and presentable, the cleaning staff appreciate tips (we suggest $200P). If you want daily cleaning service, sheet changed, floors mopped, dishes cleaned,, It is available at $25/day. If you would like a concierge to fill the fridge with groceries & alcohol - Nash properties can arrange that also.

    If you were satisfied with the service the cleaners provided,
    tips would be appreciated upon your departure.

    Wireless Connectivity & Hard Wire Internet Access;
    Your suite is hooked up with a Fiber Optic TELMEX Broadband Wireless Router. (Infinitum6435 – WIFI Key # 2984299460 - LesTwarog Wifi: elzalate402wifi. Call owner for last two letters )You can also get a HARD WIRE connection from 3 locations in the suite including 2nd bedroom under the Computer monitor, the living room – behind the flat screen TV & the master bedroom – behind the dresser. Long Cat 5 Network Cables (50' & 100') are located in the office desk and/or behind the living room TV.

    Internet:
    If you experience no internet connection (Another way to check is checking if line 1 works) then please reset the white Telmex Modem & the Vonage Modem which are located underneath the Master Bedroom Dresser. Slide out the right side of the dresser, pull out the power cord from the white Telmex Modem, wait 30 seconds and then hook the power back up. Wait 5 minutes and check if you have internet. If you have internet but not Vonage phone, then pull the power cord for the Vonage box, wait 30 seconds & hook it back up – check if you have a dial tone.

    NOTE: In the past month, we have had numerous complaints that the internet was not working in a unit but the telephone was okay. All of these problems have been reported to Telmex. Recently, the number of complaints has escalated. Today we learned a new trick to help solve the problem. In the past, we have told people to unplug the electrical cord to the modem and then plug it back in. Recently, this has not done the job with the new type of modems. Today, Telmex told us if the unplug/plug in does not work, to press the reset button on the back of the modem and hold it in for 20 seconds. This has worked to get internet reception back, to redo the password for a modem and other things.

    If not then call our property manager from the land line - line 2 142-1195 or call us from line 2 at 001-604-671-7000.

    Water Purification:
    We Used to drink the city water for 3 years & all was good. But as a precaution, we installed a purifier to the water intake pipe going into our condo (located by the water tank - outside the suite). So even the toilet water is purified. We also have a 2nd purifier and ozinater under the sink for the sink water dispenser and fridge water and ice cubes. There is a 3rd water purifier in the fridge for the water dispenser & ice cubes. So basically if you are really concerned – use the fridge water that is triple purified.

    During stormy times and/or windy days the hot water tank pilot light sometimes goes out. The hot water tank is located at the left end of the hallway as you are walking out of the suite. If you notice that you do not have any hot water - this will be the reason. We have several barbeque lighters in the suite. Please re-light the pilot light or call management to do it for you. Do not turn the water temperature setting above 2/3 or the tank will blow.

Please close all doors and windows when using air-conditioner. Please turn off A/C when you are out.
    • Please conserve water, our most precious resource.

    • NO SMOKING IN THE UNIT.

    WARNING - Bringing down more than one carton of cigarettes:
    Mexico has really clamped down on people bringing more than one carton of cigarettes to Mexico. be aware that if you do, you will be charged up to 534% duty - there is no typo here - that is correct - 534% - so one carton that costs $100 will cost you $500 duty - a lot of times you can negotiate down to $200 - you will be hauled down to a special room and it will take one hour of your time. An option is give an extra carton to somebody sitting next to you to bring it in for you.

    MONEY EXCHANGE;
    Mexican pesos and U.S. dollars are both accepted currencies in the Los Cabos area. The Mexican peso has recently been devalued as compared to the U.S. dollar and the exchange rate is approximately 17 pesos (April 2016) to the dollar.

    Other currencies and travellers cheques can be exchanged at banks that can be found throughout the Los Cabos area. You will get the best exchange rate at the banks, however there can be long line-ups and they sometimes only cash travellers cheques in the morning. The American Express office near the HSBC Bank in San Jose del Cabo also has good exchange rates. Please ask us for information on current exchange rates or a bank location near to your daily travels.

    BANK MACHINES;
    Most banks in
    San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas have Automated Teller Machines that can be used to access your own bank account. Money from these machines is obtained in Mexican Pesos at the daily exchange rates from the bank. Often the maximum that you can withdraw per transaction is 5000 pesos ($350) - there are 2 bank machines across the highway where applebees restaurant is located, however you may withdraw this amount several times up to your daily limit.

    Please note: We have found the use of ATM's preferable to carrying large amounts of cash or travellers cheques. However, depending on the bank plan that you have with your individual bank, there may be a large service charge as this is considered an International Transaction. These fees usually run between $3 - $12 per transaction on a $500 withdrawal This is a general rule but is not always the case

    CREDIT CARDS;
    The acceptance of credit cards in the Los Cabos area is not as widespread as you may encounter at home. We have found that American Express is most widely accepted in San Jose del Cabo, whereas VISA and American Express seem to be more accepted in Cabo San Lucas. If you plan to use your credit card for your purchase, please check with the restaurant or store as to which cards they accept.

    BE AWARE: THERE IS A 4% SERVICE CHARGE ON THE VISA by some merchants unless you pay cash

    Directions to get to El Zalate & Car Rental & Transportation Info
    Car rental agencies, including Dollar, Thrifty, National, Hertz, Avis, Budget and Advantage, are available at the San Jose del Cabo Airport. We recommend that you book the car from your home on the internet as the rates will normally be better. If you only want a car for part of your stay, there are offices for Dollar, Thrifty and National on the highway and Advantage and National downtown. We would be happy to arrange a car rental for you or your travel agent can also assist. There is a rental office at the Coral Baja office next door. Please note, if you pick up a car at the airport, you will be charged a 10% Airport pick up tax. If you pick up a car outside the airport, you will not be charged a 10% tax. It may be better taking a shuttle to the El Zalate complex (Approx $11/person/way) & renting a car in San Jose or at Coral Baja complex next door if you plan to rent a car for a long term. (Car Rental Info) The tickets to the Shuttle Busses can be picked up at a booth right behind the luggage Carousels. If you do rent a car, check with your gold card supplier. A lot of the companies will insure you for collision but not for liability. Full insurance costs approximately $26/day, while liability costs $9/day. If you use your gold card for collision, it is recommended that get the $9/day liability package. Please note: Discount car rentals are often offered by time share sellers as incentive to attend their presentations. These offers are legitimate, but you must be prepared to sit through a 2-3 hour high-pressured presentation. See below. If you do rent a car, it is suggested that you take the toll highway when you leave the airport. When coming out of the car rental location, turn left or follow the signs describing “Zona Hotelera” or ask for directions on how to get to the toll highway. The cost is approximately $2.50 US. Or 28 Pesos. The toll booths do not have change for over $20US so please have exact change. When you arrive at the end of the toll highway – about 15 minute drive – you will see the “Mega” grocery store in front of you, at that intersection, you could go straight, turn left or turn right, Please turn right & drive 1-2 miles. When you pass the "Dominos Pizza and Subway" sign on the left side of the highway, If you are arriving before 6 PM, go past the La Jolla Condominium Complex turn off (on right side), stay on the highway and take the next turn off (you will see a highway sign showing a turn around), go under the highway and turn back onto the highway in the opposite direction you were travelling. This will take you to the El Zalate Entrance, which is about 2 blocks away. See maps below. If you arrive after 6 PM, then use a short cut by turning into the La Jolla turn off to get back to the highway - but only after 6 PM (the La Jolla security guard books off at 6 PM)

    Advantage Car Rental Website - If you book with Advantage, you can make the reservation without a guaranteed charge to your credit card, where as if you book through Expedia, you need to pay up front for the rental with your credit card. BE CAREFUL" when filling up with gas, all gas stations have workers that will fill your tank, do not give the money before the gas jockey fills up, they tend to rip off tourists - IE you give the gas jockey 500 pesos ($50US) he will tell you you gave him $50 pesos ($5US)

    AirPort Time Share Sales - Beware!!
    As soon as you arrive at the airport & pick up your luggage, you will get accosted with dozens of time share sales people. They will all try to help you if you look lost. If you are not interested just go past all these guys to the out side of the airport & get a shuttle to the car rental company. The shuttles come by every 10 minutes. They are all located within 2-3 blocks of the airport.

    If you are interested to see a time share presentation, these sales people will offer you 3 days of car rental & cash & more. Its all negotiable. They get paid by the time share company to bring you there. We have gone to many of these presentations. These sales people are very pushy. If you want to waste 3-6 hours of your day, go for it. Personally I would not do it. If you really want to experience a time share, there are 2 that I want to recommend. Pueblo Bonito Sunset in Cabo San Lucas & Grand Mayan Resort in San Jose. Both are spectacular. After the 2-3 hour presentation the sales people will really try to close you for another 2 hours, just say no from the beginning & pick up your cash, gift & car rental voucher & leave.

    Zippers Beachfront Restaurant
    San Jose - 3 blocks walk on the beach to the left of El Zalate (Looking at El Zalate from the beach)

    Location Km 28.5 on Transpeninsular Hwy., In Playa Costa Azul, just south of San José (624) 172-6162

    If a cheeseburger in paradise is your mission, Zipper's is the real deal. Located along the Corridor near San José del Cabo, surfers downing icy Pacíficos and fresh shrimp ceviche merge with fishermen bolting Sauza and fried-fish tacos. However, the not-so-humble cheeseburger is the star of Zipper's gringo-fabulous menu. Service is slow, so pass the time watching pelicans swoop the swells, catching rays in board shorts and bikinis, and blissing out to the Jimmy Buffet-laced Radio Margaritaville, which is Zipper's 24/7 soundtrack. You won't find dance contests and jet-ski vendors here; located beneath a beachfront palapa that faces a surf break of the same name, Zipper's is a stripped-down sensory experience that rivals even the swankiest Los Cabos restaurant -- at a slightly lesser price tag.

    Price Range: Burgers and sandwiches $7-$10; main courses $7-$18

    Sport fishing in Los Cabos is excellent. In fact, the area has been called the "Marlin Capital of the World". Though Marlins in several varieties, including Striped, Blue and Black, are plentiful, the sea is full of other types of fish. Sailfish, Dorado, Wahoo, Tuna, Snapper and Sea Bass are just a few. The excitement of catching one of these sport fish is exhilarating and well worth the time. You may choose to keep your catch for eating or mounting, or the "Catch and Release" of sport fish is becoming more popular to ensure that the fish are there for your next trip to the area.

    There are several types of opportunities available to you to enjoy these catches from the sea. Most fishing boats in the Los Cabos area sail out of three locations, Cabo San Lucas, Palmilla Bay or La Playita. Cabo San Lucas definitely has the largest fleet of boats and the greatest variety. Boats can range in size from the seaworthy Panga to a large sport fisher yacht. If going out on a boat is not your idea of a holiday, you can enjoy the hustle and bustle of the fishing dock in the late morning when the boats start returning. Boats raise flags up their outriggers to indicate their catch. If the fish has been landed, you can watch it being weighed and the proud angler can have their picture taken. Of course, you can enjoy these fruits of the sea in almost all of the restaurants in the Los Cabos area. Fish and shellfish are excellent choices from menus as they are normally very fresh and moderately priced.

    If you choose to fish while in Los Cabos, here are a few hints to help you have an excellent time. Charter boats are available though agents in your home town, the internet, offices in Los Cabos and from the fishing dock. We can also arrange a fishing charter for you. In selecting the boat, you must consider the number of people that want to fish and the amenities that you require on a boat. The trip out to the fishing area can be as long as a one hour ride, so you want to ensure that the boat has enough power to get to the fishing area quickly. Amenities that make the trip enjoyable include a bathroom (head), a shaded area, good fishing equipment and a knowledgeable crew. You will want to take sunscreen, a hat, clothing to protect you from the sun, a seasickness pill (just in case) and plenty of beverages and food.

    The cost of a fishing charter is quite expensive, but well worth it for the exhilaration of catching one of these fish. The good thing about the Los Cabos area is that the fish are plentiful, so your chances of "Being Skunked" are fewer. When arranging a fishing charter, the price includes the boat and the crew. It is not a price per person. The boat will hold a maximum number of people and you can share the cost among that number or less. Charters leave around 7AM and they will first stop to buy live bait at $2 per fish (probably will buy 10). The charter boats can provide a lunch and beverages, at a cost. You can also take your own snack. When you return to the dock, you can have your catch weighed and a picture taken. The captain can also arrange to have your catch cut-up and packaged for you. There will be a cost for this service. It is also customary to tip the boat crew at the end of the fishing trip. Though this amount is not set, 10% is acceptable but it will also depend on your catch and the service.

    We would be more than happy to arrange a boat for you. Please review the following information and let us know if we can be of service.

    Those wonderful folds at Telmex block access to toll free numbers in the United States, but if you must call your bank or your credit card company while down here there is a work-around
    - Taxi Company Phone Number 624-172-6166
    - to call an 800 number, change the 800 to 880
    - to call an 888 number, change the 888 to 881
    - to call an 877 number, change the 877 to 882
    - to call an 866 number, change the 866 to 883
    You still need to dial 001 before dialing your new toll free number, and this call will cost you money.

    GET A LOCAL MEXICAN CELL PHONE FOR $50

    If you plan to be in Mexico for some time, a suggestion is to pick up a local cell phone from "Telcel" the local carrier. You can pick up a cheap phone for $50 including 200 minutes of air time. You can buy additional minutes at most grocery stores. They cost approx 30 cents per minute and you can buy them in $20, $30 & $50 denominations. The bonus is that all incoming calls on that cell are FREE - the caller pays for the call. Outgoing calls cost 30 cents. To call Canada or US from the cell is about $1.50 Dollar per minute but still a lot cheaper than using your US or Canadian phone at $3.50 per minute. Please note, when calling a Mexican cell phone from the US or Canada, there is the normal long distance charge + a "Mexican sur charge" for the cell call. This additional sur charge is usually around 30 cents per minute & would be charged to your home account on top of the long distance charge.

    Cell Phone Credits;
    To check how many minutes or credits are available on your Mexican cell phone enter *333 then press send, to check available credit push 1, you will get an automated response in Spanish or English telling you how many pesos of credit you have. To call customer service dial *264


    Payphones;
    You will find payphones for long distance telephone calls throughout the Los Cabos area. Telemex or Ladatel phones require a Ladatel credit card in order to use them. These can be purchased at many grocery stores in 30, 50 or 100 peso values.


    Telmex – local telephone company
    Telmex now has a toll free number, 01 800 728 4647, that you can call for assistance in long distance calls to the
    U.S.A. or Mexico. There are bilingual operators 24 hours per day. You can charge the call to your major credit card, your local company card or make a collect call. The toll free number to contact an ATT operator is 01 800 288 2872 or 001 800 462 4240. The toll free number to contact a MCI operator is 001 800 674 7000. For calls to Canada, the Canada Direct toll free number is 01 800 123 0200. If you dial long distance calls directly, your damage deposit will be held for up to eight weeks until the Telmex bill for that period is received

    How to transfer Tel Cell minutes from one phone to other;
    on your mexican cellular/telcel sim, open your SMS application and create a new message that needs to be sent to the number 7373, and in the body of the message enter nickie's telephone number and a single space and $100 pesos in credit, and press send e.g.- 6241742137 100.
    The service costs you(the sender) almost 1 peso, and the recipient is charged 3 pesos. you can only send up to 10 transfers per 30 day period(month), and can only send a max of $100 pesos per transfer - it may only be 99 pesos, which is why i want you to try 100 pesos first... if the 100 pesos does not work then you'll need to send 99 pesos each time. sender can only send paid credit... bonus credit does not apply, meaning if you purchased a $1000 pesos phone card and got $1000 pesos in bonus, the $1000 in bonus cannot be transferred/sent to another sim/phone.

    Transfering credits from One Telcel to another telcel number

  • you can only transfer $100 pesos at a time to another number
  • You can only do 10 transfers per month
  • Instructions:
  • Create a NEW SMS message and enter 7873 in the SEND field.
  • In the message body field enter xxxxxxxxxx (the cellular number you wish to transfer the credit to) (plus a space) xxx ( and the amount you want to transfer, max $100 pesos - eg. 100)

    What To Do In An Emergency

    If you need help, especially emergency help, call 911. Lines operate 24 hours a day, all year long. When you call, the operator will ask for basic personal information and the nature of your call. If it’s an emergency, within a minute, even while taking your information, the team will get the wheels in motion to send help. Operators direct your call to the appropriate emergency vehicle or department. We are told unit response time averages between 15 and 20 minutes, so we’re going with that story.

    911 has a good database program, however there is no GPS locator system, which means they can identify the number and the area of the caller, but not the specific location. Calls are recorded, as is the phone number from which the call was made. You are not required to give your name, and you will not be pressed to do so, as in the United States. However if you really do not wish to have your name or phone number recorded, dial 089 instead, the anonymous line. In either event, be prepared to speak Spanish.

    Telephone Instructions From The Gringo Gazette
    The area code for Los Cabos is 624. It includes Cabo San Lucas, San Jose and Los Barriles.
    Example:
    To dial land-to-land phones within the Los Cabos aarea, just dial the seven digit number i.e.; Gringo Gazette would be 143-0865.
    Lond distance dialing: From another city to the Gringo Gazette in Los Cabos dial 01-624-143-0865. Dialing long distance is just like dialing long distance in the States and Canada except you are dialing 01 instead of 1 before an area code.
    Todos Santos and La Paz are in teh 612 area code.
    To dial within the La Paz area from the La Paz area just dial the seven digit number. For example the restaurant La PazLapa would be 123-4757 if you are calling from La Paz. If you are calling the restaurant from within the Los Cabos area code you must dial long distance: 01-612-123-4757.
    Calling from outside the country to Los Cabos: 011-52-624+phone number. The 011 tells the phone company you want an over seas connection, 52 is the country code for Mexico and gets you into this country and the rest is just the area code and phone number. That's if you are calling a land line. If you are calling a cell phone in Los Cabos, you now have to throw in an additional "1" before the area code. As in 011-52-1-624+phone number.
    From out of the country to La Paz: 011-52-612-123-4757. (The long distance operator, Mexico's country code, LaPaz area code, the restaurant's seven digit phone number.) remember, if you are calling a cell phone in La Paz from outside the country, you now have to throw in an additional "1" befroe the area code.
    Phone dialing 102, Cell phones.
    To call acell phone which is outside your own area code, it's a whole new ballgame. Example: to call a cell phone in La Paz from a land line in Los Cabos, dial 045-612+the seven digit phone number. The 045 tells the phone company that the caller pays for the call.
    To call a cell number that is either in the same or a different area code but still within Mexico, just dial the seven digit number starting with the area code even though you are in the same area code. Example: You are in the Los cabos area and you want to call a La LPaz cell number; dial 612+phone number. If you are La Paz and want to call a La Paz cell, you must dial 612+phone number.
    From out of the country to a Los Cabos or La Paz cell number you now have to throw in an additional "1" befroe the area code. as in; 011-52-1-624+phone number.
    Remember that?
    Cell phones are getting trickier so you gotta get it in your head that the only time you treat them any different is when you are in the save area code. The 044 is currently only used when dialing from a land line to a cell number in your same area code. The 045 is used when calling from a land line to a cell phone outside your area. To call from cell to cell within Mexico just dial the area code + the seven digit number
