The first Moon handbook I encountered was the classic South Pacific Handbook, by David Stanley. Then I acquired another classic, J. D. Bisignani's Hawaii Handbook. The handbooks all follow a common plan. There is first a lengthy introduction, covering the geography, history, and culture. Then general information on shopping, museums, how to get there, getting around, activities, and what to take.

Whether they're after beaches in Todos Santos, nightlife in Cabo San Lucas, or historical landmarks in La Paz, travelers will find what they're looking for in this guidebook to the verdant region of Baja California. Moon Handbooks Cabo provides the essentials on a range of dining, transportation, and accommodation options, as well as useful cultural insights and sidebar topics on subjects such as island-hopping, cooking, religion, and bar lingo. Complete with maps, photographs, illustrations, and extensive information on outdoor activities, such as hiking, fishing, boating, sea kayaking, windsurfing, surfing, snorkeling, and scuba diving, Moon Handbooks Cabo is the traveler's guide to a memorable and uniquely personal trip.

IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TRAVEL TO CABO THEN THIS BOOK IS VERY HELPFUL AND INFORMATIVE. THE BOOK IS DIVIDED INTO SECTIONS WHICH ARE CABO SAN LUCAS THE PLAYGROUND OF THE CABO AREA, THE CORRIDOR WHICH IS THE BEACH AREA, SAN JOSE DEL CABO WHICH IS VERY LAY BACK,QUIET, RESERVED AREA AND THE SURROUNDING AREAS LIKE LA PAZ, EAST CAPE AND WEST CAPE AREA. IT HAS EVERYTHING TO FIT YOUR INDIVIDUAL TASTE. IN SAN LUCAS, SAN JOSE, AND LA PAZ IT HAS MAPS OF THE DOWNTOWN AREA,HOTELS AND DESCRIPTION AND PRICE RANGE, SAME THING WITH RESTAURANTS AND ACTIVITIES SUCH AS FISHING,SNORKELING,ATV'S. ALSO THE BOOK GIVES YOU HINTS ON TRAVEL,MONEY,WHAT TO LOOK FOR AND WHAT NOT TO LOOK FOR. THE ONLY DOWNSIDE IS IT DOES NOT GIVE YOU A PARTICULAR PRICE AT THE HOTELS AND RESTAURANT JUST THE PRICE RANGE

I made a trip to Cabo last year and found this book quite useful for planning and executing a trip. Do your homework before you go, read it and plan a tentative schedule of events and things to see and do and you will save valuable time when time is of the essence. A more appropriate title might be The Cape Region but it wouldn't have the name recognizability that Cabo does. Tourists tend to visit Cabo San Lucas or as it is known, Cabo, when they fly in. The book covers the whole Cape Region, including the Central Cape where you wil find small towns and if you are so inclined ,hiking trails in the Sierra de la Laguna. For the adventurous soul there is information about camp sites and details about the Canyons found in the Central Cape. The East Cape is only touched upon briefly unfortuantely. There is also a section on La Paz and the vicinity surrounding it.Other sections of the book include both Cabos, San Jose del Cabo and the more popular Cabo San Lucas. We stayed in a condo in San Jose del Cabo as our headquarters and found it quite pleasant and enjoyable. It was quite laid back. By comparison Cabo San Lucas was anything but. If tourist infested regions of Mexico are what you seek in a trip to Mexico than San Lucas is for you. A few visits was enough for me as I preferred the tranquility and slower pace of San Jose. In any event, the book lays out information for both, including The Corridor, which is the 18-mile stretch between San Jose and San Lucas. The book has maps detailing the various accessible beaches along The Corridor, including several surfing breaks on the reef. There are also several diving spots along The Corridor. Restaurants are also suggested but naturally food tastes are subjective and require some common sense and prior knowledge of the food of Baja's coast. The book also covers the West Cape which is not very developed but has the old charm of Mexico. There is lots to discover in the old towns. A major section is dedicated to Todos Santos which is a lushly-vegetated arroyo seco(dried river bed). I found this place to be very interesting , quaint yet quite charming with a bohemian-artist-flair to the town. It is an artist colony of sorts. Here you will find The Hotel California. Each section of the Cape Area features a history of the towns, places to eat, places to stay, including houses for rent, bed-and breakfasts, hostels, guesthouses, apartments,condos and the onmipresent saturation and expansion of hotels. There are also suggestions on things to do that are geared to the tourist, with addresses and maps. There are tips on money changing with locations of various ATM's, post offices, telephones etc. The tourist and party haven, Cabo San Lucas(this is what tourists think of as Cabo)has 30 pages out of 270 pages in the book dedicated to the hussle and bustle of Cabo. The same type of information is available for Cabo San Lucas or Cabo as the other regions, including sports and recreation, useful telephone information etc. but the scope of the book does not focus on Cabo. This is a good book for the adventurous traveler who wants to explore the area by car. We rented a car and traveled every day to a different location and actually spent little time in Cabo, usually only at night. To this end the book was extremely useful for the week we were there. As with any travel book, businesses change, go out of business, are replaced by new owners etc, so be flexible and use common sense. You will enjoy your vacation more that way. I plan to use this book again for another trip to the region but this time for a longer period of time and by my own SUV. This is a recommended book for the Cape Region, from La Paz and everything in between, to Cabo San Lucas, as opposed to just Cabo San Lucas or as it is known, Cabo.

I just returned from a week in Cabo and found this book to be hopelessly outdated. On at least four occassions, I took my family in search of restaurants and other attractions featured in the book, only to find they had closed (in some instances, quite some time (even years) ago). And to be clear, I probably only sought out ten places in the book to start with (so we're talking about a 40% hit rate). To me, that is totally unacceptable. By the last two or three days of the trip, we just left the guide in the hotel room. I also found the maps to be difficult to use. I did appreciate some of the narrative in the book.

Utterly useless. The layout is awful. The recommendations are off the mark. The guy spends so much time showing off that he is one with Cabos that he fails to provide anyting useful that a gringo tourist may need. It was impossible to plan anything using this book, as the information was incomplete, out of date, uninteresting, or just plain wrong (PS Don't eat at Mi Casa...the restaurant is worse than Pepe's, and yet, Mr. Cummings recommends it highly).
