Very quiet. A short walk from Holiday Inn. Some wildlife . This place has really suffered from the Hurricane in 2013/2014 . It's still a beautiful place to visit

We were walking from our hotel to downtown and got to see a forest fire up close. The bird sanctuary had caught on fire from someone's cooking fire. Burned for many hours and all of Cabo had black soot and dead embers all over.

The Estuary was only a mile and a half from our hotel so I thought it wouldn't be a big deal to walk there and check it out even though it was pretty hot. However, I got all the way down there and it was closed. I thought maybe I'd somehow missed the entrance, so I went to the hotel... More

This was right next to our hotel (Holiday Inn Resort) and was a really pretty place to spend some outside time.

Its the only place in all of Cabo that is green and somewhat lush, however, its very hot and humid walking along the beach. The beach is unsafe to swim in so you cant cool off, and the flies were swarming so bad they it made the visit almost intolerable

We had a wonderful afternoon walking through the estuary in San Jose del Cabo. Don't let anyone tell you that there are not many birds to see because the place is alive with wildlife. We saw osprey, blue wing teals, cinnamon teals, coots, moorhens, lizards, horses, cows, fish and all sorts of egrets, heron and sandpipers and the list goes... More

We were walking along the beach and then found this wonderful wetland area. There are a few tall bird blinds that give a good view into the wetland. We saw many species here--osprey and frigate birds were my favs, but there were several ducks and shorebirds as well.

Unfortunately, at 7am one morning, all we could see were pods of ducks and a few ahingas. Maybe another day it would have been better.
