Getting To Cerritos Beach

We recommend using the San Jose del Cabo Airport (SJD) for traveling to our area, and then renting a car at the Airport. The drive is safe on a 4 lane divided highway and takes about an hour and fifteen (1:15) minutes. You can stop at Costco, Walmart, La Comer, or many other Supermarkets on the way to the Villas de Cerritos for food and drink.

 

Toll Road From Cabo To CerritosFrom Cabo:

Go North on the 4-lane Highway 19 toward Todos Santos. Turn left on to a dirt road marked by Cerritos Beach signs at roughly the 65 km marker, after a mile you will make a slight left and go straight for 300 yards. You will see a three story cream colored building on your right. At the rock wall take a right turn on a small dirt road and another right hand turn where the wall makes a turn. You will see the parking lot and reception are from there. If you end up in the town of El Pescedero then you went about ½ mile to far. There is another road into Cerritos before the road mentioned above. If you end up on that road just Follow down towards the beach. The road will wind down to the right and you will pass a surf shop on right. Stay on the main dirt road until you start coming up a slight hill. Take a right on top of the hill and you should be able to see the 3 story condo tower about 200 yards away.

 

La Comer:

La Comer has everything you need to stock up for your trip. If you are taking the toll road towards Todos Santos once you come to the end of the toll road take a left at the end of the road.  La Comer will be a few miles down on your right as soon as you get into Cabo.  La Comer has a large assortment of fruit, vegetable, cheeses, meats etc..  You can also find sunscreen, towels, electronics, cooking needs, and games. It’s equivalent to the big box stores in the US and Canada. La Comer also has a bank machine and it’s a great place to pull out some cash before heading North.  If you buying beverage it’s best to buy aluminum cans since they recycle aluminum in Todos Santos.
