Reviews for Marina Puerto Los Cabos
Expensive but worth it, 2017-03-14
Captain: , Portsmouth NH (430)

I found this marina to be on the high end of the price scale but after two weeks of travel it was a great place to rest up. The container (thats what it really is a shipping container) restaurant served excellenf food and drink for a reasonable price. Town is close by with all the shopping you will need.

Very nice marina in a lovely town, 2016-12-13
Captain: , Victoria (70)

We have really enjoyed our stay here. The town is quaint and very welcoming. We loved the 'Historic District'. Very clean marina with nice docks. No power though, unless you want to pay quite a bit more. We paid $50USD/night for 40' and were quoted $64USD/night for a slip with power. We have solar panels, so opted for no power. The marina office is way on the other side, so a golf cart picks you up to go check in. The showers and restrooms are very nice and clean. Laundry service isn't that convenient though- you have to take it to the office and they send it out to come back the next day. Fuel is available- we filled up our jerry cans to avoid the surcharge for tying up there. The staff are friendly and very professional. A nice hop from Cabo San Lucas before heading up to Los Frailes.

A good place to slow down., 2016-01-22
Captain: , Brookings, OR (647)

We spent a month here 12/12/2015 %u2013 1/13/2016 to relax through the Christmas season and be able to stay in contact with family.

We stayed on the %u201CB%u201D dock that is right next to the fuel dock. This is the %u201Ccheap%u201D area but that is just a relative term around Cabo. We had no potable water or electricity. As we are self sufficient as far as electricity is concerned that didn't matter. We did need potable water and we had the marina deliver 3 bottles, standard water bottles of 5 gallons, to our boat at a cost of $5usd per bottle. That was the last delivery they made to us. Across the street there is a tienda and you can get the same water for 20 pesos per bottle. You will have to put a deposit down for the bottles but that is 70 pesos per bottle refundable.

There are restrooms and showers at the fuel dock. This is a 5 minute walk plan accordingly. The woman%u2019s showers were reported to me to be nice except that sometimes the hot water runs out. The man%u2019s showers were clean but the one that had the best shower head had a very slow drain that filled up the shower stall and ran out into the bathroom. It was this way for the whole month. The other two showers had good drains but the shower heads were terrible. Both restrooms were cleaned daily.

There are 2 55 gallon trash cans on the dock for trash and they are emptied multiple times a day. If you need a pump-out then a boat comes by for a fee.

You can take your laundry to the main office, this is a 15 minute walk around the marina, and they will have it cleaned for you. The first few times we picked up the laundry at the Container bar but it changed as we were leaving and now you pick it up at the marina office. Cost is about 100 pesos per load.

The fuel dock is operational but it will cost you $25 usd to tie up to the dock plus the cost of the fuel. There is a 2% credit card fee.

Across the street there is a tienda that has most everything you could need. They are very friendly. There are a couple of other tiendas near by but we went to just the one.

If you need more groceries there is a WalMart and Mega Mart in town. Also if you need boating supplies the Ferrer Mar is on the way to the WalMart on Calle Valerio GonzŠlez.the #5 bus passes right by and goes into San Jose del Cabo. 12.5 pesos per person. If you want to walk to town it is a 45 minute walk across the bridge. Walk around the marina, when you get to the maintenance building go out the dirt road to the main road.

There are a lot of great restaurants nearby. They are reasonable and the food is good. Personally we liked Ts on the beach. We didn't go to El Gonzo or the Container for food or drinks as they are expensive.

Good local resource is Greg at Los Cabos Yacht Services. He is a retired American and speaks fluent English and Spanish.

I would give them 5 stars but for the price not having potable water and power is ridiculous.

Nice place to spend time, 2015-06-01
Captain: , Georgetown, SC (616)

We spent a month here, arriving after the long slog down from Mag Bay. The most expensive slip we've ever rented, but comparable in price to Cabo San Lucas. It's just an expensive area, about $1,700 per month for our 44' trawler. Likewise, fuel is expensive, but very convenient.
It's either a long walk, adventurous bike ride, or cab ride into the town of San Jose del Cabo. The Centro area has retained it's quaint ambience, while the outlying areas contain the major supermarkets, including WalMart. The remaining big box stores are found in Cabo San Lucas, about 25 miles to the SW. The Container restaurant has happy hours (two times a day) and serves tasteful, reasonably priced food and drink.
Unless you're at one of the docks abuting the marina office, it's a pretty good hike to get there. As noted in the previous reviews, the heads and showers are minimal. When we were there, the facility was still recovering from the direct hit from Hurricane Odile. One of the most unique and impressive attractions is the extensive collection of sculptures created by the artist Leonora Carrington. They're at the head of each dock and located throughout the grounds.
Shirley Collins (the Asst Mgr) and Elizabeth in the office are very helpful. They'll process your paperwork with the Capitania, both entry and exit.
Considering everything, if we were to return to the Los Cabos area, this would still be our choice of marinas.

The Capitan is out, 2014-12-24
Captain: , Oyster Bay, NY (71)

Captain Jim Elfers is no longer the contact at Puerto Los Cabos Marina. called for him on November 8, 2012.
Captain Jeff Eden is now in charge. Very Helpful!
Be careful approaching at night. The Lights on the Jetty's are not very bright , more important is that the 2012-2013 version of Charlies Charts has THE WRONG LAT/LON COORDINATES for the entrance. DO NOT USE THESE OR YOU MAY END UP ON THE BEACH. Unfortunately I do not have the correct position info handy, but the new version has been corrected according to the folks who took over the publication.

Nice alternative to CSL, 2014-11-11
Captain: , Seattle (396)

After 3 days of the marina at CSL, we stopped here on our way north. got a slip with no power for $58/night. a bit pricey for no services and no head or showers nearby, but the internet rocks (using an amplifier). since we asked for no power, we were assigned a slip at the fuel dock by the boatyard. Nice staff. walked as far as the bridge into town. There are lots of interesting statues along the marina walking path that seem to be from an artist who overdosed on Steven King stories!

Good Value, 2014-04-19
Captain: , Long Beach (983)

Good balance on rates for daily, weekly and monthly. Staff very helpful, close to Marine Group Boat Works for repair isssues. Not too far too town by bus and or walking. Still is a little dusty, need wash down every three to four days. Good docks, electric, water. Weak on showers and heads, no pool or bar-b-que area. Area around marina is still under development.

Mexican Shuffle, 2013-11-29
Captain: , Seattle (21031)

After a week residing at the IGY Marina in Cabo San Lucas we surpassed our tolerance of the 24/7 noise level and decided to shuffle off to this marina nearby San Jose del Cabo. Where Cabo San Lucas is big, bold, noisy, sexy, and modern, San Jose Del Cabo has its identity sunk deeply in the history and traditions of the area. Comparable to its nearby city The Marina at Puerto Los Cabos is a small, semi-quiet marina near the historical mission town to the east of bustling Cabo San Lucas.

The marina staff%u2019s level of service for their visitors and the immaculate facilities, not to mention the decrease in decibel level, creates a five-star experience for visiting boaters who don%u2019t need to be in the middle of all the action within the Cabo area. The location offers easy airport access while grocery shopping is also a short taxi ride away. Boat repair, cleaning, refueling, pump out, water, and charter services are all contained within the marina%u2019s basin.

There are also plenty of delights to take in nearby without having to set foot in Cabo San Lucas.

San Jose del Cabo is a very quaint. The Plaza Mijares and Mission San Jose del Cabo anchor the downtown with its narrow streets, many restaurants, and small stores selling jewelry, handmade local goods, and quality art. One can also enjoy quite a gastronomic feast as there are many local chefs who ply their trade without the fanfare and the high prices found in Cabo. Part of the fun of exploring the town is to discover the various delicious food options. For those who want what we perceive as a sure thing in a restaurant setting we recommend El Matador.

The San Jose del Cabo Saturday Market is also a delight to visit. It operates every Saturday except during the summer.

Another highlight is the Estero de San Jose del Cabo, which is the mouth of the Rio San Jose, a lifeline to the town. This river, a virtual subterranean umbilical cord, feeds precious water to the growing desert city. Being the largest year-round fresh water source in Baja California the recorded history of this area is lengthy. Many groups of people, from the Pericu Indians who fought against the Jesuits trying to establish a mission to the Manila galleons and pirate ships looking for food and water following long Pacific Ocean crossings have left traces of their presence here. Strolling along the terminus of the river, at the estuary, we marveled at the diversity of bird life calling this thin margin home. Herons danced, osprey fished, ibis probed, ducks dove, and coots generally complained. Dragonflies and damselflies skittered about, sometimes landing and becoming ephemeral ornaments on the streamside vegetation.

We highly recommend this marina. We were glad we made the Mexican Shuffle between Cabo San Lucas and here. Being at this marina was like Whipped Cream to our almost two week stay in the Cape area. Spanish Flea(s) were not in evidence, nor did we have to ride in a Tijuana Taxi, and that%u2019s no Lonely Bull.

Excellent Facility, 2013-11-22
Captain: , San Diego (302)

We just spent a couple of days here as part of the Fubar rally. Really nice facilities, good restaurants and friendly staff. Still lots of work to be done here but much better than Cabo in our opinion,

Better than Cabo, 2012-12-03
Captain: , Newport Beach (20)

Great docks, neat little town like Cabo 20 years ago. Close to the airport. Felt very secure leaving the boat in the marina while I returned home for a month. It is pricey, but offers good value. It is about 3 or 4 miles from the town of San Jose. Cab fare to town between $8 to $10 us depending on the cab company.

San Hose Del Cabo marina, 2012-11-30
Captain: , London (709)

Very good marina with execellent staff, a bit expensive for mexico but not a rippoff like Cabo San Lucas. We have a Nordhavn 62, paid $2100 for the month but daily rate means that if you want more than 10 days you are better off paying the monthly rate as we did. Nice cafe on site (The Container restaurant). Marina well finished and power and water good, clean tidy and well done but lacks good showers and restrooms. Cheaper berths with no electricity can be negotiated, about half price.
Cabo San Jose town is interesting and has an art walk on thurday eveniings, lots of galleries and artists, with good restaurants to go to afterwards. There is a wallmart within cycling distance and a Mega for stores. Costco is 25Killometers away near Cabo San Lucas but can be done with buses or hire a car in town. We have just returned here again and still it is good but even better, Marine Group from San Diego have a yard here that is exceptional. We had our Nordhavn 62 lifted for the usual bottom maintenace and other work and not only did they finish on time, it came in under buget. Thats never happended to me before and the yard is clean, tidy and well maintaned. They have a 200 ton lift

Great marina for transient stay in Cabo area, 2012-11-11
Captain: , Kirkland, WA (4478)

We stayed here almost a week and enjoyed our stay. Staff is helpful and facilities are nice. The town of San Jose is very quaint with many shops and good restaurants. Bicycling distance to town with Walmart and Mega foods. Don't miss the Saturday Organic Market in town.

Nice new marina, 2012-05-25
Captain: , Sequim Bay (378)

This is a relatively new marina in the Cabo area. As such the amenities such as docks are great. But personal facilities such as bathrooms and showers are still to come. Not that they don't have them but it is a walk and they are fairly basic at this point. But that will change at a price. They are expecting to raise prices June 2012 to $2 per foot more for electricity. Water is not potable they say. The people here are very friendly and pleasant to deal with. There is a marine repair shop and chandlery on the premises. They have the basics.
I would come again but not a $2 per foot.

Affordable & Friendly, 2011-12-27
Captain: , Sydney Australia (151)

For the yachting fraternity the best & cheapest side tie this side of Ensenada. Excellent rates for boats less than 50 feet based on 14 days or longer. Intersting & artistic town, cheap public transport to a large walmart & soriano(s)

Big Boats Galore, 2011-11-28
Captain: , San Francisco (239)

The facilities and docks are first class and that is reflected in the number of very large yachts and sport fishers. Dock staff is exceptionally helpful and friendly. Great stopping place or destination.
