Cabo San Lucas
Situated on the southern coast of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico, Cabo San Lucas has drawn millions of vacationers for almost half a century. The waters of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez converge at the tip of Land's End, just a few minutes by boat from the downtown Cabo Marina. Once a quaint fishing village, Cabo San Lucas now attracts visitors from all over the globe. Los Cabos is home to a bevy of world-class resorts, picturesque beaches, emerald golf courses, five-star cuisine, boisterous nightspots, and a expansive state-of-the-art marina.
Just a quick cruise from Marina Cabo San Lucas, and you have the chance to participate in some of the premiere off-shore angling in the world. The abundant waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean offer a plethora of sport-fish for deep-sea fishing aficionados. Depending on the season, anglers have the opportunity to land Wahoo, Dolphin, Sharks, Tuna, Amber Jack, Grouper Dorado, and Striped Marlin.
Water sports fanatics have plenty of other options besides the fabulous fishing: Visitors can snorkel, scuba dive, parasail, surf, kayak, sail, and jet ski in the spectacular waters off the shores of Baja California Sur. Outdoor-types will also love to explore the desert lands of Baja. Whether you are interested in eco-friendly excursions such as Hiking or Horseback Riding, or motorized adventure on an ATV or off-road vehicle, Baja's beauty will take your breath away.
The entire area, called "Los Cabos," consists of the animated vacation hub of Cabo San Lucas, the beautiful twenty-mile expanse of seaside resorts called "The Golden Corridor," and the pleasant colonial charm of San Jose del Cabo. Compared to the non-stop festive environment in Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo presents vacationers with a more casual option. Spanish architecture, classic local restaurants, artist studios and local craft vendors can be discovered lining the cobblestone streets of San Jose.
But, if you are in more of a party mood, make sure you check out the bars and nightclubs in Cabo San Lucas. College students on Spring Break flock to such hotspots as Mambo Café, Squid Roe, and Cabo Wabo. But vacationers visit Cabo for more than the raucous nightlife: dedicated anglers travel to Cabo during the Summer-time and Autumn to snag that trophy fish. Like the pods of Gray Whales who migrate to the Sea of Cortez to escape the cold, scores of North American travelers flee from the bitter cold to enjoy the warm climate of Los Cabos during the winter.
