"The casita had everything we needed for a relaxing break away from the busy-ness of a pre-arranged, all-inclusive resort vacation. We've done that, a resort is okay, but the seclusion of small-town Los Barriles is just what we were looking for. We opted not to get a car, but probably will next time...or maybe just a quad, we didn't really need a car. Instead, we had Wolf Management arrange a pick-up for us at the airport. Reasonably priced and friendly, the guys at Turis Pancho were at the airport waiting with a van for just us. We stopped a local mini-mart for a few beverages before we left Los Cabos and they took us to a grocery store in Los Barriles for some more essentials. We met up with Wolf Property folks and they checked us right in. (I forgot about the deposit, but had the cash on me which they refunded in the same cash at check-out.) Los Barriles is tiny, but we weren't here for anything but relaxation. We kept saying we'd go to town and get a car or a quad, but it took us three days to bother to walk all the way into town when a grocery store was an easy walk in a safe neighborhood. It was not a bad walk to town, we just didn't feel like bothering and Wolf said they'd have a car delivered if we wanted. Everyone took dollars at a reasonable exchange, so we didn't get pesos very often either. We'd just walk up the street for whatever sounded good (and for more limes...definitely perfected my margarita recipe...that's one tough blender!) Finally, we did rent a quad for a few days, and never felt the need for a car. The quad allowed us to run to town to eat out. Taqueria Viejo was our favorite, but Barilito was fine and the nachos at Vagos Sports Bar, where we watched the game, were excellent. We didn't go to town for the nightlife; if you want a big party, this isn't your place I've heard, but I never checked for myself. If you want to relax on the beach, kayak at a leisurely pace and snorkle for fun, it's all right here. We aren't fishermen, but did see folks fishing from the beach or from small boats. We loved the privacy, the beach was always clean and quiet. The noisiest thing was the quads, but they're just not that bothersome when you're relaxing on the beach. We loved our time in Los Barriles and at the casita!!"
