Los Cabos Overview

Los Cabos MapIn the Cape Region of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula, the towns San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas are collectively referred to as Los Cabos. They are connected by an 18-mile (29-kilometre) four-lane highway stretch of hotels and beaches called The Corridor. San José del Cabo is mostly a retirement and fishing community, and is more laidback than Cabo San Lucas. Cabo San Lucas has the same population of permanent residents as San José del Cabo (approximately 25,000), but most of the 300,000 tourists that go through the Los Cabos region every year head straight for Cabo San Lucas, making it the party capital of the area.

The climate in Los Cabos is warm with plenty of sunshine all year round. The peak tourist season is November until March with January being the coolest month at an average temperature of 86F (30C), and June being the hottest month with an average temperature of 104F (40C). During the months of February to July, virtually no rain falls in Los Cabos, while August through October is the time to expect tropical storms.

San José del Cabo

The town of San José del Cabo is built on a hill a mile north of the seaside. It is more traditional than Cabo San Lucas, due in part to the fact that it was originally settled by Jesuit Missionaries. Today, San José is a pretty retirement community and the seat of the region’s municipal government. The Los Cabos International airport is 8 miles (13 kilometres) north of San José del Cabo and those who are traveling by land must pass through the quiet town to reach Cabo San Lucas.

As of yet, San José has no marina or harbor. Anyone wishing to do some fishing, kayaking, surfing, snorkeling, or diving must make arrangements with local outfitters. Hotels are always ready to help out with reservations for guided tours. The freshwater Rio San José merges with the Pacific Ocean in a 125-acre estuary just east of town. The Estero de San José is truly one of the most beautiful sights in Los Cabos, and must not be missed! The area’s best swimming beach, La Playita, is just east of San José del Cabo in the Pueblo La Playa Village.

The Mayan Palace Golf Los Cabos is a 9-hole championship course in the hotel zone along the seashore beside San José. This course was created by the Government of Mexico’s development agency (Fonatur) and designed by Mario Shedjnan. It is always maintained with great care and is meant for both intermediate and beginner golfers. The club also has tennis courts, a pool, a pro shop, a restaurant, a bar, and a caddy shack.

The Presidente Inter-Continental Los Cabos is a newly renovated and expanded 400-room resort that offers free greens fees at the nearby municipal course. It also has three pools, two swim up bars, three lighted tennis courts, and hot tubs.

Palmilla Golf ClubThe Corridor

The Corridor between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas has four of the best golf courses in Los Cabos, plus one private club. Beautiful undeveloped beachfront is accessible from almost any point on this stretch of highway but not all beaches alongside the Corridor are good for swimming. Playa Costa Azul is one of the best swimming beaches in The Corridor, located west of San José del Cabo.

The 4 world-class golf courses in The Corridor are Cabo del Sol, Palmilla, Cabo Real, and the Eldorado. The Cabo del Sol Resort features the famed Ocean Golf Course, designed by Jack Nicklaus, as well as the Tom Weiskopf–designed Desert Course. The Fiesta Americana Grand is located on-site, while the Sheraton Hacienda Del Mar features lush, Mediterranean-influenced condo suites and a three-level pool.

Palmilla Resort and Golf Course is possibly the finest championship golf available in Los Cabos. It has 27-holes of 3 9’s: the Ocean, the Arroyo, and the Mountain courses. The Palmilla Hotel is the Cape Region’s very first resort, built in 1956 by the son of the former Mexican President. This 114-room hotel has broad ocean views, swaying Coconut Palms and cherry red Hibiscus bushes covering the immaculate grounds.

The Cabo Real Resort is a 3000-acre resort community featuring the Cabo Real Golf Course, designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., and Jack Nicklaus’ Eldorado. Of the 5 hotels to choose, the Westin Regina stands out as the most expensive resort to have ever been built in Mexico. Completed in 1994, it is artistically designed both in its architectural lines and colors. There are 255-rooms and suites, all of which are blessed with dramatic ocean views. The crowning glory of this resort is the magnificent ocean-side pool and the Zen garden that overlooks it.

The Tom Fazio-designed, 840-acre Querencia Golf Course is the only private club in Los Cabos. It maintains a secluded feel despite the 250 homes, condominiums, and villas located on the grounds. The 2600 sq. ft. Clubhouse and the 12-acre modern practice area are some of the The Querenica’s best features.

"El Arco" at Land's End, Cabo San LucasCabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas has a more lively nightlife than San José Del Sol and as such is more frequented by tourists. The 300,000 tourists who frequent this little town mostly descend during the November through March peak.

Cabo’s harbor and marina make it a major destination for cruise ships and boating enthusiasts. Due to the harbor’s heavy boating traffic, Cabo San Lucas is the only city in Mexico with a protected 14 sq. mile (36 sq. km) marine reserve designed to preserve the area’s biodiversity.

Half a mile north of the Cabo city limits, is the Cabo San Lucas Country Club. The dramatic rock formations that grace the most southerly point of the Baja Peninsula (referred to as Land’s End), are visible from each fairway, making sightseeing on this course a real hazard to the game. Also available on the grounds, are tennis courts, swimming pools, and fitness clubs. Admirably, the 746-acre Cabo San Lucas Country Club helps preserve the Cape Region’s limited potable water by recycling the grey water from the hotel through a system of duckweed ponds until the water is ready to be used for irrigation of the grounds.

There are plenty of reasons why over a quarter of a million tourists visit Los Cabos every year: great golf, premier accommodations, swimming all year round, and majestic scenery. If your goal is a memorable golfing holiday, consider staying at the resort affiliated with the course you intend to play. If partying in the Mexico sun is your objective, stay right in the heart of Cabo San Lucas (but remember that the airport is an hour drive from here, so be sure to make travel arrangements to avoid unnecessary hold ups). For the most relaxing vacation, book accommodations in the mellow little city of San José Del Sol. The Corridor’s full access to the seaside is ideal if your desire is to walk on endless stretches of undeveloped beach. Wherever you stay, and regardless of the style of beach vacation you seek, Los Cabos will greet you with warmth and treat you to the best Mexico has to offer!
