Playa Los Cerritos is the only swim friendly beach on the Pacific side of southern Baja. It offers lifeguard services daily during the high season (November-May) and weekends only for the rest of the year. However, Playa Los Cerritos is famous for its surf breaks. In the corner is a point break that faces south. For the next 300 yards, there are a series of beach breaks that break both left and right. This beach is suitable for all skill levels so if you have never surfed before this is a great place to learn. If you already have experience, the consistent breaks will allow you to improve your skills.

Caution: consult with lifeguards regarding current conditions at all times.

Both San Jose del Cabo and La Paz have airports close to Playa Los Cerritos. While San Jose has more frequent flights and is more convenient, the road from La Paz is a nice four lane that takes you directly to the beach.
We suggest that you stop for supplies at the Mega or Soriana big box stores. It’s on highway 19 as you leave Cabo for Cerritos Beach. Cabo also has a Costco & Walmart. After you do your shopping call Frank at +52 612 140 4627 and he will meet you at the house and check you in. We do supply drinking water.
