Beach at San Josť del Cabo


The Last Beachfront Campground

The Los Cabos area has been inundated with high priced hotels and condos, and almost all of the beach campgrounds have disappeared. In San Josť del Cabo, I found the only remaining beach campground in the Los Cabos area, and was shocked to find that it cost US $26 dollars per night! My previous campsites had only cost 20-50 pesos (US $2-$5) per night!

The Mexican man running the campground agreed with me that this was an absurdly high fee for a campground, and he had tried to convince the Canadian owner to lower his prices, but the owner wouldn't budge a peso. It made me happy to see a bit of real world capitalism in Mexico. I smiled to myself; if I owned the only remaining beach campground in the Los Cabos area, I would be charging at least $26 per night. I happily paid the fee. It was a magnificent spot with thundering waves and spectacular sunrises, and the Canadians at the campsite were very friendly. Since I now had a big wad of pesos, I splurged and stayed a second night.
