Los Cabos

 

Sculpted terrain beside the sea... colonies of gentle sea lions basking under the sun... endangered whales finding a safcabo map.jpge harbor... Here, at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, land ends and the Gulf of California mixes with the great Pacific Ocean. Miles of breathtaking beaches line the refreshing resort towns of Los Cabos -- lively Cabo San Lucas and laid-back San Jose del Cabo. Cabo is the Marlin capital of the world and boasts Mexico's best golf with four world-class 18 hole courses. All this, plus an exciting nightlife combine to make "Cabo" the perfect vacation spot for every sun and sport enthusiast.

 

Los Cabos Resort Areas

 

cabo beach.jpgThe resort town of Cabo San Lucas sits right on the edge of the long Baja California Peninsula, known as Land's End. Referred to as Cabo by the locals, this destination was made famous for it's world class big game sport fishing (notably the powerful Marlin). Cabo has grown to become much more than a fishing village, with many popular night clubs, restaurants, land activities, diving, and of course the famous arches beyond Lover's Beach. The quieter and more laid back village of San Jose del Cabo is to the east of Cabo San Lucas, and is actually the county seacabo airport.jpgt of administration. Its wonderful tree lined streets attract a somewhat older crowd, and cafes, shops and small restaurants are all within easy walking distance of the more traditional central plaza. Further up the coast along the gulf is the area known as the East Cape, which stretches east from San Jose del Cabo and then north up to Los Brailes. The East Cape is a continuous series of coves and beaches that also include some growing small developments. And finally, the Corridor is defined by the four-lane highway that connects Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. It is home to many beaches and coves, as well as a number of first-class hotels and private developments.

 

Los Cabos Climate

The geographical features of Baja California Sur, comprising a mountain range to the east and plains to the west, contribute to its varied climate, which is hot and dry on the Pacific Coast and hot and humid on the Gulf of California. Los Cabos has a desert climate with a dry heat tempered by ocean breezes. Though temperatures can soar to 100°F in the summer, the humidity is low and rain storms are rare. Evenings can get windy and chilly in the winter months. Be sure to bring a jacket.

 

Los Cabos Location

 

Los Cabos is located in the State of Baja California Sur (south), a 900-mile long Peninsula, at the tip of the Baja where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, to the west of the Mexican mainland.

 

Los Cabos Golf

 

Los Cabos is home to four world-class championship golf courses.

  1. The Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol has been called one of the five most beautiful in the world. A Jack Nicklaus signature course, this spectacular masterpiece is referred to as "the Pebble Beach of Baja," and features seven holes on the Sea of Cortés. Cabo del Sol skirts the shore of the Sea of Cortés, and is situated at Playa Barco Varado, about halfway between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Ranked among the "Top 100 Courses in the World" by Golf Magazine, the course was host to the 1996 Shell Wonderful World of Golf and the 1995 and 1998 SENIOR PGA TOUR Senior Slam.

  2. The Palmilla Golf Club was also designed by Jack Nicklaus, offering golfers spectacular views of the Sea of Cortèz from nearly every hole as it winds through centuries old cardon cacti and rugged desert mountain terrain, making each hole a memorable experience for golfers of every skill level. The course is divided into the Arroyo Nine, the Mountain Nine and the Ocean Nine. The five sets of staggered tee boxes ensure golfers, from beginners to professionals, an exciting game.

  3. Cabo Real is an 18-hole, par 72 championship layout located by the beach, designed by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. It plays 6,945 yards and is definitely not for short hitters. Almost every hole has a wonderful view of the Sea of Cortés, with the 15th right on the beach. With four tees per hole, the course provides plenty of hardships for the low-handicap player, yet can be fun for the average golfer.

  4. The Cabo San Lucas Country Club offers a challenging Par 72, 18-hole course designed by Pete Dye. With an idyllic setting overlooking Land's End, this magnificent course features waste deep bunkers, subtle terracing, and a 607-yard par five (the longest golf hole in Mexico). Dye said the 72-par course is a challenge for golfers on all levels, because with the multiple tee boxes, it can range from a very short course to a rather challenging one with enough hazards, obstacles and bunkers to make it interesting.

Los Cabos Dress

 

Casual dress is appropriate for nearly all occasions in Mexico. However, Mexico has some particular customs regarding dress for certain situations. Bathing suits are not to be worn away from swimming pools and beach areas. Flashy or suggestive clothing is inappropriate in smaller resorts and inland cities. Shorts should never be worn when entering a church. In big cities, evening attire tends to be more formal, while casual dress is generally appropriate for beach resort dining.

 

Los Cabos Weather

 

The average year-round temperature is 78°F. During the high tourist season, October to April, the temperature is typically 80°F. The climate is arid with over 300 days of sunshine, some reports over 350 days.  Average annual rainfall is 5-10 inches.

 

Los Cabos Airport


The Los Cabos International Airport is 7-miles north of San José del Cabo.

History and Location Los Cabos

Los Cabos (the capes), is a large municipality spanning the East and West Capes at the tip of the state of Baja California Sur.  Los Cabos is located 900 miles southeast of San Diego, California.  The Tropic of Cancer crosses the peninsula 50 miles north of Land's End.  The two main tourist areas of Los Cabos are Cabo San Lucas (San Lucas or Cabo) and San José del Cabo (San José).  In the 1950s, Hollywood celebrities flew down to Cabo in private planes to fish.  The two-lane paved highway from Tijuana opened in 1974, and tourists began discovering the secret of Los Cabos.  Then FONATUR, Mexico's government agency responsible for tourism development, began the infrastructure that enabled Los Cabos to become the resort destination it is today.  The area population of Los Cabos is approximately 130,000 with over one million visitors per year.

 

Cabo San Lucas

 

Cabo San Lucas is at the tip of the Peninsula, where the Sea of Cortéz (Gulf of California) and the Pacific Ocean meet.  Cabo San Lucas Bay, one of the most beautiful in North America, was once used by pirates to plunder Manila galleons returning from the Philippines.  Cabo San Lucas is known for its famous stone arch called El Arco in Spanish.  Famous for world-class sport fishing, annual marlin fishing tournaments award hundreds of thousands of dollars in prizes.  Other big attractions are water sports, shopping,  dining and exciting nightlife.   The heart of Cabo is its marina; the home of sports fishing fleets, luxury yachts, and boats for tours and cruises.

 

San José Del Cabo

 

Smaller and quieter than Cabo and nineteen miles northeast, San José is a colonial oasis founded in 1730 by Jesuit missionaries on the banks of the Rio San José.  The seat of government for the municipality, San José has an appealing downtown of tree-lined streets, a large main plaza and a picturesque twin-spire church.  There is plenty to do around the area:  every type of water and land sport is nearby, or rent a car and explore the East Cape of the Sierra de la Laguna range.

 

The Tourist Corridor of Los Cabos

 

The oceanfront Tourist Corridor separates Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo.  Resort hotels, endless beaches, and championship golf courses wind along this magnificent coastline.

 

LOS CABOS WEATHER

 

The coolest months are December and January.  Water temperature is rarely below 70 degrees Fahrenheit.  Average Fahrenheit temperature in the winter season ranges from the upper 80's to the low 50's.   Average Fahrenheit temperature in the summer season ranges from a high of 100 to low 70's in the evening..  The Pacific Ocean side of the peninsula is usually 10 degrees cooler year round than the Sea of Cortéz.  Average annual rainfall is 10 inches, most falling in September.

LOS CABOS BEACH INFORMATION

 

NOTES OF INTEREST: The following are a few things to know before beginning your Los Cabos, Baja California Sur Beach Vacation:
 

CABO SAN LUCAS SAND FALLS

CABO SAN LUCAS LAND'S END

 

Land's End is located off the southernmost point of the peninsula, sea turtles, mantas, sea lions and octopus are among the large species that chase baitfish into the caves and crannies of a dramatic submerged cliff side.

 

CABO PUOLMO NATIONAL MARINE PARK

 

Baptized "Aquarium of the World" by Jacques Cousteau, Cabo Pulmo is located on the East Cape.  This natural wonder is the largest living coral reef in the Eastern Pacific Ocean. It is well worth the dive.

 

GORDO BANKS

 

Eight miles off the coast of San José del Cabo, this deep dive (130 feet) in rough currents is for the very experienced divers only.  But once you get down, you will swim among schools of hammerheads and bull sharks, manta rays, and even the occasional whale shark.

 

. . .  and much more!

 

SAN JOSE DEL CABO

 

Please do not forget to visit San José Del Cabo - a very unpublized town.  Probably because the Corridor Highway passes by it, instead of going through it.  For those visitors who long to immerse themselves in a more traditional side of Mexico, this friendly town take you back in time without sacrificing modern amenities.  The village of organized streets is situated a mile from the sea separated from the beachfront by gentle hills, a protected estuary, a nine-hole golf course lined with private homes and condos.

 

Most Americans had never heard of Cabo, let along San José Del Cabo, until the 1980's but the peninsula was well known to seafarers as far back as the 17th century.             

 

If you are looking for an impressive assortment of arts and crafts -- San José Del Cabo is the place to visit.

 

Unlike Cabo San Lucas where nighttime is party time, San José Del Cabo is laid back and quiet.  The main focal point of this town is the plaza, directly across from the church.  Well-lit and surrounded by shops, the plaza represents a safe and enjoyable place for relaxing. 

 

Dining is extraordinary in San José Del Cabo -- Seafood -- Mexican delights -- Fine Wine -- everything you can imagine!  Low key, quiet, art, history, culture -- San José Del Cabo is a must visit!

 

Guests can dine on International and Mexican cuisine featuring fresh sea foods and live lobster prepared by first-class American and Mexican Chefs within a Colonial Mexico ambiance.  Mariachi and Salsa Shows.  Breakfast was relaxing and very well prepared.

 

MARINA CABO SAN LUCAS

 

MARINA CABO SAN LUCAS is a modern marina, strategically located in the harbor of Cabo San Lucas, at the very tip of the Baja Peninsula.  The marina is one of the world's outstanding yachting, sport fishing and mega-yacht facilities.  It is a safe protected harbor of refuge at the tip of Baja California and in the home of the world's richest sport fishing tournaments -- Marlin, Tuna and Dorado.

 

ATV RENTALS LOS CABOS

 

Los Cabos and Cabo San Lucas offer varied options for tours and excursions while on your vacation.  Visit Cacti Mundo Botanical Gardens in San Jose del Cabo or take and eco-tour on an ATV.  Unforgettable excursions, tours and activities are found in the Los Cabos area of Baja California Sur, Mexico.


Riding through the desert on your own all terrain vehicle is a popular past time for visitors to Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area of Baja California Sur, Mexico.  Helmets are required!  A bandanna for your face is also recommended due to the dust and grit.  Most tour centers will provide helmet, goggles and refreshments.  ATVs are not permitted on the beaches of Los Cabos because of their disruption to the ecosystem, including nesting turtles and their hatchlings.  On the street, and in the neighborhoods please keep your speed down and keep a watchful eye out for children, pedest4rians and animals.

 

Take an amazing 25 mile journey through the ecological reserve, a network of connecting trails, crossing arroyos, traversing mountains and narrow canyons.  Trails are well marked and completely away from the public.  Speeds are kept low with many stops to view the stunning Sea of Cortéz and view the gorgeous countryside.  During the late summer and early fall, there are some nice waterfalls after it rains.  This is a fantastic way to see the desert ecosystem and learn more about the flora and fauna of Los Cabos.

 

CABOREY LUXURY CRUISE SHIP

 

The Caborey is cruising to success daily.  The Caborey is a twin hull dinner theater at sea with a capacity of 600 passengers and offers guests an air-conditioned platform for sightseeing, food and fun.  Sailing on the Caborey is a magical experience.  During our cruise we sailed closed to and around the El Arco towering rock formations.  We proceeded for one hour to sail north along the Pacific Coast, past resorts, and to the site where the movie Troy was filmed.  The beauty of the marine life is breathtaking.  Sea lions were waiving from rocks below and then diving into the ocean.  Schools of dolphins swam by the moving ship.  The unspoiled beaches are unbelievable.  The sea was crystal clear azure and very quiet.  The rock formations are awe-inspiring.  We had the feeling that we had traveled back to prehistoric times and the Pharadactyls were flying high above the cliffs.  So wonderful.

 

Come to the Caborey . . .  and enjoy an exquisite, world-class dining experience.  Whether you choose the scrumptious Chateaubriand cooked to perfection or the renowned Caborey Shrimp (or Lobster in season) or the delicate Sea Bass bathed in white wine sauce, your palate will be treated to a blend of tastes unequaled in Los Cabos.

 

After dinner, a spectacular floor show with international appeal will delight and entertain you.  Performers whip around boleros (ropes tied to hard balls that make cracking noises against the wooden floor), and dancers heat up the crowd with tango routines and many costume changes.  From the fast-paced Gaucho dancing to romantic Mexican boleros, this Argentinean-style show is well-produced.

 

NOTE:  We fully recommend the sailing experience on the Caborey.
