Default Mexican Riviera Water in Sept?

Can anyone tell me, what the beaches are like on the mexican riviera during the first part of Sept?
Is the water cold or warm?
I live in northern CA where the ocean is always cold, no matter what time of year it is.

I'm not much of a beach person, but If I decide to hoof my way down to the beach, the water better be warm...

I've cruised to the Mexican Riviera in late Sept. 2006. We swam in Cabo and in Puerto Vallarta, the water was fine.

The water is almost like bath water. We always cruise any where from Sept-Oct.

Ferrangi not at all like the ice berg frozen water we have here. To get you ready here is a link to the web cam of Cabo San Lucas beach. http://www.allaboutcabo.com/beachcamlrg.htm
and a picture from my 2006 cruise to Cabo. I wish I was there now.

Awww, I wish I was under one of those umbrellas right now. ~sigh~




Anyway, back to the question, I haven't been in October, but have during Christmas and the water to me was not warm, not cold, but not warm. I'm sure this doesn't help you one bit and I'm sorry.

I'd be more worried about a tropical storm popping up.

We are all just one big happy family here.... I love it.

Yes, Tropical Storms are always on my mind... but hopefully we won't have to worry about that.

As far as humidity... I don't like that either, but I think I can get past that considering I'll be cruisin'....

Looks like the east bay area has a lot of cruise folks all happy to talk about their adventures. Maybe someday we should get together and have a cruise themed party or something...

That beach was Medano Beach the water taxi can take you right there. They didn't charge for the seats but you can get drinks there. I loved it however, that is a crowd beach. This is a link to all the cabo beaches including a web cam to Medano Beach. http://www.allaboutcabo.com/beachcamlrg.htm
