 Access

In between Cabo San Lucas and the San Jose Airport, on the only paved road that runs along the shore. The Costa Azul Surf Shop is on the land side of the road, the surf beach is almost across the street, but down the cliff. Access is through hotel/private property, but nobody seemed to mind.

from a contributor:
"I just learned to surf recently (in Santa Cruz), but I think I am correct in saying that Costa Azul, for those who can make their way there, is unbelievable. I went in July and the water was bathwater warm, the sea was deep blue, the water was clean, the beach was pure white, there were only a handful of surfers sharing more than enough waves. AND THE WAVES were unbelievable. 5+ feet, consistent, powerful. The bottom was a little scary during low tide. I can barely surf and I was catching huge waves by accident (honestly caught one while paddling OUT). And the rides are LONG, all the way into the shore from way, way out. Later in the day conditions pick up and the waves get bigger (6-8ft), coming in sets of 3-5, making it really hard to paddle out, so I sat on the beach while my boyfriend and his buddy got pummeled. I know this sounds like a stupid chick review because I really don't know that much about surfing, but I do know that Costa Azul is a great place, and even if I'm wrong about surfing, where else can you buy beer for 50 cents and drink it while you are driving down the most amazing stretch of coastline?"

- The drive down has to be planned so you are off the road by nightfall. Travel lean and low profile.Have anything of value(boards)hidden and inside with you.Bring too much water and fill the jerry can. Lacking those things will kill you quicker than los ladrones.

yeah? - i'm curious about that too - not that i think it would be a good idea to get trigger happy down there but is it really that bad or is it more of the usual bullshit we get fed? are there lots of good campsites on the way down?
