Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México

Los Cabos is located on the tip of the state of Baja California, an area surrounded by arid desert, golden beaches and turquoise waters. A lively, fast-growing destination, Los Cabos offers spectacular championship golf courses, exceptional sport fishing, endless possibilities for diving and snorkeling and superb shopping and entertainment. The many attractions on its bays, shores, salt marshes and mountain ridges are the scene for a beautiful enchanted visit.

Description

Once coveted by conquerors and pirates, Los Cabos has evolved from a simple hideaway for fishermen and sailors to one of the top world tourist destinations. With a wealth of activities, a wide range of hotels for any budget and an amazing natural environment, it attracts couples, honeymooners and families, adventurers and nature-lovers alike.

Los Cabos consists of two enchanting and different cities, each with their own remarkable features, joined by a 20-mile corridor. San Jose del Cabo, an 18th Century mission town, still keeps all its historic flavor and picturesque charm. Cabo San Lucas, a modern and bustling town is abundant with stores, restaurants and an exciting nightlife. The Tourist Corridor is home to luxurious hotels, a collection of championship golf courses and outstanding beaches.

San Jose del Cabo’s quiet and colorful landscapes, Cabo San Lucas’ activity and excitement and the Tourist Corridor’s luxurious hotels offer a fascinating contrast to a place with a history and diversity as rich as all of Mexico, as well as something for each taste. A natural stone arch, El Arco, formed where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean, stands as a monument to the breathtaking singularities of Los Cabos or “the Capes”.

San Jose del Cabo

“Charming” is the word most often used when someone is asked to describe San Jose del Cabo. The historic center’s old buildings and the overwhelming presence of the Parroquia San Jose church are pleasant sights for the eyes. You will feel very comfortable in the inviting atmosphere of the main plaza. Old customs and traditions prevail here and time seems to be nothing more than a relic of the modern world.

Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas is located on the southern tip of Los Cabos and it is nowadays the world capital of golf and the favorite destination for divers and game fishing lovers. However, Cabo San Lucas will suit any traveler’s taste thanks to the great hotel infrastructure, wide assortment of restaurants, nightclubs and beautiful beaches. Visited by cruise ships and private yachts all year round, it has become a much sought after place, as a comfortable refuge away from the spotlight for artists and other famous people.

Tourist Corridor

If you look for exclusivity and utmost sophistication, this is the place for you. The 20-mile scenic highway that runs between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, known as the Tourist Corridor San Jose-San Lucas, is the site of major resort development in Los Cabos and some of Baja’s most beautiful beaches.

It features a unique unspoiled desert landscape where you can get away from it all, but at the same time, find all the luxuries you’ve been longing for. The Tourist Corridor is dotted with amazing beaches, world-class hotels, villas, private condominiums and magnificent golf courses that will please the most discerning traveler.
