Cabo San Lucas
Nestled on the southernmost point of the eight-hundred-mile Baja Peninsula of Mexico, Cabo San Lucas has become one of the hottest vacation destinations on Earth. The cool waters of the Pacific Ocean in the west converge with the temperate waters of the Sea of Cortez at Land’s End, just a short boat trip from the Marina Cabo San Lucas. Once a modest seaside fishing hamlet, Cabo San Lucas along with the Golden Corridor and San Jose del Cabo, attracts visitors from the world over. A collection of five star resorts, panoramic beaches, world-class golf courses, elegant cuisine, rowdy nightclubs, and a modern downtown marina make the region of Los Cabos the perfect holiday destination.
Some of the premier Deep Sea Fishing on the globe sits just minutes by boat from Marina Cabo San Lucas in downtown. A teeming array of game fish inhabits the gorgeous waters of the Sea of Cortez. Anglers have the chance, depending on the time of year, to land a variety of species including billfish such as Swordfish, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, Black Marlin and the plentiful Striped Marlin. Cabo is known as the Striped Marlin Capital of the world. Other gamefish in this sportsman’s paradise include Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Yellowfin Tuna, Yellowtail Tuna, Bluefin Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, Snook, Snapper, Mackerel, Grouper, Cabrilla, Bonita, Amberjack, Jack Crevalle, Shark and Rooster Fish, among others.
If you are a water-sports enthusiast, you’ll love vacationing in Cabo San Lucas. Snorkeling, Scuba Diving, Parasailing, Surfing, Kayaking, Jet Skiing, and Sailing are just a few of the activities that visitors can enjoy. And outdoorsy types don’t only have sea-based options for activities – the rugged back country desert of the Baja Peninsula provides the ideal landscape for motorized tours on ATVs or more ecologically-favorable excursions like horseback riding or hiking. The gorgeous desert panorama is a truly majestic sight to behold.
The whole region, named "Los Cabos,"includes the metropolitan Cabo San Lucas, the 20-mile stretch of extravagant resorts dubbed “The Golden Corridor,” and the old-world Spanish allure of San Jose del Cabo. Compared to the rollicking party flavor of Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo allows visitors to take it slow and relax and enjoy the local culture, including colonial architecture, amazing eating-establishments, and artisan studios. Nothing is more romantic than taking a horse-drawn carriage ride along the cobblestone avenues of San Jose.
But, let’s face it – the legendary party atmosphere put Cabo San Lucas on the map. Every March and April, university co-eds migrate to Cabo for Spring Break to cut loose at night-spots like Squid Roe, Mambo Café, and Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo Cantina.
