Well folks, my Los Cabos adventure came to an end. For a whole week I enjoyed the pleasures of this vacation paradise. Los Cabos now became one of my favorite spots visited so far. Great weather day and night, wonderful people, delicious food, beautiful beaches and scenery, fabulous day activities, and exciting night life. Definitely a place to stay as long as you can! No boredom possible in Los Cabos.

Metal detecting in Los Cabos was a great experience too. I decided to bring my BH Pioneer 505 ($299) because I was not sure about possible issues carrying an MD abroad given the many security restrictions in airports. In fact, an airline agent in Chicago was not sure about me bringing the Pioneer as a carry on inside the plane. Well, no problem at all at any airport here or in Los Cabos. Nobody said a word to me and I happily carried my MD with me all the time!  I only detected for about a couple of hours at four different beaches and besides the many pull-tabs and other nuisance, I managed to find 3 silver rings, a good number of US and Mexican coins (90% of the tourism in Cabos comes from the US and Canada), and other not so interesting stuff like a cell phone, a credit card and bookstore card (by accident), fishing weights, and even 2 dangerous large fish hooks on dry sand  Shocked .

I came across with another MD folk from California at the busy Las Cascadas Beach (in Cabo San Lucas) and he had found 3 gold rings last year, but no luck this year so far because he said that many detectorists from the US come to Los Cabos and frequently hunt on that particular beach. Note that I wasn't detecting in the water or wet sand because I carried a land detector. So if you want to find gold (and there is a lot of it there), you will have to bring a beach MD with you for most of the jewelry is found in shallow water! Lots of tourists I saw snorkeling and swimming with their expensive gold jewelry on, something that I would never do personally Teach.

Locals were very curious and interested in MD for the very same reasons we are! Yet, they don't know where to acquire one and some found a $299 MD unaffordable Undecided . There is a Sam's Club and a Costco in Cabos, but they told me that they don't carry them. Well, I understand that it is not profitable to carry an item that locals would not normally afford. So the possibilities are excellent to find good stuff and even if you find Mexican coins, you can always save on goods purchased there.

Well, that's it for now. I loved the experience and will return to this paradise spot in the future.  Detecting

Sounds like you had a great time Relaxing and Detecting.    Detecting
So I assume Los Cabos is not affected with the crime and gun battels associated with Mexico City and up to the Border towns from the drug Cartels.  Fight

Good question! Not at all. Los Cabos depends exclusively on tourism and so they are very protective of their main source of living. Los Cabos is very safe and its people very courteous and friendly. Look at this, I just lost a little nose piece from my sunglasses and while trying to find it on the ground, a local pedestrian asked me if I was fine and quickly volunteered to help me find the minute piece! Where else in the world would you find such a courtesy? Those are the little things that make you like a place and wanting to come back. Go ahead and visit Los Cabos any time, you'll love it!
