Los Cabos, Mexico

cabosanlucas-11 2 3 4 5 6 7

Los Cabos has become one of the most attractive vacation spots in Mexico offering visitors big game fishing, world-class golf, scubadiving, snorkeling, surfing, kayaking, ATV, bike, and horseback excursions, rejuvenating luxury spas, and dancing until dawn. Los Cabos is comprised primarily of two towns, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, that are linked by a 20-mile corridor lined with resorts and championship golf.
San Jose del Cabo is reminiscent of an older time, where the days are longer and the mood softer.

The Old Jesuit Mission, known as Parroquia San José, The Estero, an estuary with an endless variety of colorful birds and wildlife, and a historic downtown are just a few of many attractions. Cabo San Lucas is noted for its festive atmosphere and nightlife, and also offers a variety of attractions. El Arco, a natural rock formation in the shape of an arch, lies adjacent to Playa Del Amor (Lover’s Beach) where couples can stroll hand in hand when the tide is low. In Cabo San Lucas, water enthusiasts can dive and view gardens of black coral and waterfalls of sand as they glide with sea life under clear warm water.

The Corridor at Land’s End is defined by the azure blue and turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortés, rugged cliffs, quiet coves teeming with marine life, desert vistas, and mountains that all come together with a wash of colors that are unmistakably Cabo’s. This beautiful stretch of desert coastline is still mostly undeveloped, however the towns of Los Barriles and Buena Vista are thriving fishing and tourist communities offering local cuisine and pangas to rent for a day casting your line in the deep. The East Cape is also the windsurfing center of Los Cabos, as well as being home to the more remote Cabo Pulmo which draws divers to the most northerly coral reef in the Pacific. Wherever you go in Los Cabos, you will find everything you need to leave the cares of everyday life behind.
