Experience Los Cabos, Mexico
The majestic sight of mountain desert tumbling into the cobalt blue Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez will mesmerize you. With a Los Cabos vacation package you will find a wide variety of vacation options and hotel choices. Three distinctive hotel zones feature world-class beachfront resorts…lively Cabo San Lucas, laid-back San Jose del Cabo and in between the two, Cabo’s twenty-mile “resort corridor”.
Scattered through high hills and private coves, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo hotels offer a romantic getaway for couples. There are several world-class golf courses including Cabo del Sol and Palmilla. Los Cabos has over fifty miles of oceanfront and almost every resort is located on a stunning stretch of picturesque beachfront, but not all are swimmable due to extremely swift currents and powerful waves. However, you’ll find beaches nearby offering all manner of water sports including jet skiing, scuba diving, parasailing and surfing.
If you feel up for a challenge, try reeling in a giant blue marlin on a chartered fishing boat in the marlin capital of the world! You will want to conserve your energy though – Cabo San Lucas really heats up when the sun goes down. Dine out at a fabulous restaurant then hit any of the numerous clubs in Cabo San Lucas, and you’ll see why Cabo is famous for its nightlife as well as its incredibly picturesque beaches.
The destination known as “Los Cabos” is actually two destinations in one. There are two “Cabo” towns: San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. These sister towns, while near one another, could not be more different. Cabo San Lucas is a much livelier and upbeat town, attracting travelers who like to explore all day and party into the night. San Jose del Cabo is more laid-back, inviting you to relax, recharge and reconnect. In both towns, you can expect mountainous views, delicious food, Mexico’s best golf courses and plenty of sunshine.
Land’s End Arch
If you search the internet for “Los Cabos,” odds are you’ll come across pictures of the Land’s End Arch. It’s a pretty cool rock formation, after all. And since the area’s sandy beach is called “Playa del Amor,” you know it’s a romantic spot.
The rockiness of most beaches in Los Cabos makes them un-swimmable. But there are still plenty of other ways to enjoy the ocean, including the Sea of Cortez. It’s sometimes called “The Aquarium of the World” by divers who love exploring its depths. Deep-sea fishing is big here, since “the big one” is in season pretty much year-round. If whale-watching is more your style, La Paz Bay is home to humpback whales all winter.
We’ll just come right out and say it: Los Cabos is one of the best places in Mexico for championship-level golf. For starters, Cabo del Sol’s Ocean Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, has crazy ocean views to accompany the challenging golf game, while the unique Desert Course designed by Tom Weiskopf offers its own challenges. At Puerto Los Cabos, you can play holes by Greg Norman, and at Cabo Real, the championship course by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. takes you up the mountainside and back down to sea level in 18 holes. If you want the spectacular views but a less intense round of golf, head to the Cabo San Lucas Country Club, where the 18th hole overlooks Land’s End. Bottom line? Wherever you play, it’s going to be impressive.
The party in Cabo San Lucas doesn’t stop after the sun goes down. If live music is your thing, then make a stop at Cabo Wabo for drinks and dancing. And since craft beers and microbreweries are all the rage in the U.S., you can impress your beer-loving friends back home by visiting Baja Brewing Company, Cabo’s first microbrewery.
San Jose del Cabo is a quieter, more refined town with a focus on the arts. The beautiful downtown area is inland from the coast and offers the most authentically Mexican vibe in the area with its beautiful church and cobblestone streets. Although the beaches near San Jose del Cabo are not swimmable, they are long and lovely, perfect for walking or jogging. Sounds like a pretty relaxing vacation to us.
