An hour north of Casa Esquina, up scenic Highway 1, at mile 69, along the pacific coast lies a stretch of beach called Cerritos. Most every day it's a quiet beach frequented most by surfers and expats that live in the area. On Sunday however the beach comes to life...with the sound of music.  

 Venture off the highway, travel down a dusty, bumpy road to Cerritos Beach Club for a Sunday afternoon you won't soon forget. One friend describes Cerrito's as her 
                            "Heaven on Earth".


Daline Jones and Diego Ramirez are celebrating 7 years of performing their jazz stylings at Cerritos. "I loved them them on our very first trip to Cabo, and now plan our flights to make sure there is always a free Sunday to make the trip up towards El Pescadero". 

During whale season, you might even see a few Greys bobbing in the surf to the music, which may be Jazz, Soul, Latin or Pop.  Performances are 2-5 pm. Get there early for a good table. 

Kick off your sandals, settle your toes in the soft sand, sit back and enjoy or get up and dance.


You can pack your own beach chairs, umbrellas and even cooler if you wish but the waiters will provide service right to the water's edge. There are also many loungers and umbrellas in the restaurant vicinity for use by restaurant patrons. However, sitting between the stage and the surf will not allow optimum enjoyment of the music. 

For the best experience, I recommend planning for lunch at Cerritos Beach Club. The new menu is greatly improved with a good variety of choices from Ceviche to Hamburgers. Drinks will run you 4.50 for a beer and 8.00 for cocktails. The chili dog and beer combo at 5 bucks is budget friendly. They also have their own brand of tequila, that I have been told is pretty good, and is served ice-cold.

If you're looking for something for the kids to do, while you hang out at the beach bar, Mario's Surf School provides 1 or 2 hour lessons. Private lessons are available starting at  60.00 per student. Great instruction and attention will ensure the kids will be at least standing on the boards before the lesson is over, and be sound asleep in the car on the ride home! Send Mario an email a few days ahead to secure your reservation. The beach here provides pretty reliable waves. 

Don't forget to pack the boogie boards as well. You'll see every age group here playing in the waves. It's nice to be able to go out quite a ways and still be able to touch bottom, 

For the ultimate relaxation, a beach massage can fit the bill. There were at least 7 massage tables set up on our  last visit and they were all busy. 

Or perhaps a peaceful walk down the couple mile stretch of beach, past the surfers, the fisherman, the kiters and the kids is what your heart desires. 

Donkeys and cows frequent the highway so hit the road before it gets dark. Have your waiter stamp your parking pass and it's customary to tip the parking attendant.
On the drive home you can try to figure out how to change your flights so you can do it all again next week. 

Karen Barnert never tires of Sunday's at Cerrito's.  You can also catch Daline and Diego at Medano Beach at Cascada's on Tuesday evenings, or The Office on Fridays. For surf lessons www.mariosurfschool.com For off season updates on entertainment schedules www.ceritosbcs.com
