Before heading further south consider stopping at El Pescadero, just 12km from Todos, a small dusty village close to some of the best surf breaks and beaches on the coast: Playa San Pedrito, a short walk from the village, and gorgeous Playa Los Cerritos, 1km south (look for the turn at km 65).

mariosurfschool.com) rents surf boards for US$20/M$260 per day and offers lessons for US$60/M$780 per hour at Playa Los Cerritos. Cabo San Lucas is another 60km south from Pescadero. Most buses stop at Pescadero, on Hwy-19 (every 30min or so in both directions), but you really need a car to make the most of the area.
