You are in Cabo, dresscode isn't a hugh deal, even if you go off property to a top notch eatery and club. Think of Jimmy Buffet and the Eagles and that is the style really. Booze cruises are effin crazy and for more than a few reasons, I no longer do them. Sunset dinner cruises range from a fajita bar and drinks on a 40 foot party boat, to a 55 foot tall ship with a sit down 4 course meal in the state room with martini and wine bar. The latter may call for more than cargo shorts.
The diving, which is the main reason I go, is fantastic. Even if you only snorkel, it is some of the best on the West coast or anywhere for that matter. Fishing is always good there, though I get a bit ticked off at the boats there not catching and releasing smaller billfish. Golfing is exceptional, but costs thusly. Extreme adventures are way good also with killer ziplines etc.
Nightlife is off the hook. Go to Cabo Wabo on a weekend night, preferably when they have a band playing. Absolutely hit up The Gigglin' Marlin and get hung upside down while chugging a tequila slammer. Also go to El Squid Row, wild place, friggin wild. Can't beat multiple floors with cage dancing and you will be on the top of your table doing the riverdance. Eating, I prefer The Mango Deck and The Office for day in and day out meals. Best chicken tortilla soup evah and their mole and other sauces are authentically delish. Lots of little local haunts that are great too. Most Resorts also have some darn fine high end dining on site, again sans cargo.
Now, the drawbacks. By all means, have your transportation set ahead of arrival, to and from your resort. I can't stress this enough. The Taxi Union in Cabo is fierce! And with San Lucas a full 29 miles from the airport you can and will be held hostage to their whims. This place also has some of the most aggressive timeshare salespeople in the universe. You can barter and get a lot for taking out three hours of your day(they will tell you 90 mins.) to get the fullcourt sales pitch and tours of beautiful properties if you like. I my lady don't care for it much. Especially here. I tell them I don't have any credit cards, not even a debit card. Only cash. That stops them in their tracks.
Anyway, have fun and it should be hot and getting humid. Good bikini weather for sure!

No, no, no! That's Enrique, he personally cleans the tacos of wifes that have non taco eating gringo husbands. The whole country has been alerted of you Nuke. Just beware of Paco, the brown sash wearing greeter.
