Cabo Pulmo: Credit Card Theft and Charming Casitas

from the March, 2014 issue of Undercurrent   Subscribe Now

In our January travel story on Cabo Pulmo, our anonymous reviewer noted that someone at a some local outlet got a hold of her credit card information and tried to buy a laptop at Best Buy. Undercurrent reader and underwater photographer Dan Clements (Everett, WA), who takes dive groups to this area several times each year, says, "I've had several folks get their credit cards 'hacked' at grocery stores, including the big-box stores in Cabo and La Paz. So if visiting this great area, be careful about using credit cards in grocery stores, and consider using cash."

Dave Whiteside (Sacramento, CA) has also been to Cabo Pulmo many times but didn't know that Alicia, famous in town for the stuffed peppers she serves at her eponymous restaurant, also rents out two charming, inexpensive casitas next door. "Can I have the phone number for her so I can call to rent?" Alicia can be reached from the U.S. at 011-52-624-151-7956, but put a Spanish speaker on the phone to make reservations, as she speaks little English. Or you can risk it by heading to Cabo Pulmo without reservations and see if she has an opening. Her accommodations are under the radar -- for now, at least.
