Sat at the tip of the Baja California Peninsula, surrounded on three sides by azure waters, Los Cabos Municipality is a haven where sun, sea and sand combine in blissful harmony. Blessed by glorious sunshine year-round, yet pleasantly cooled by the rolling sea breezes, this heaven on Earth will surely make each and every visitor feel uniquely special, guaranteeing good times all round.
While the Sierra de la Laguna mountains rise to the north, the cobalt Pacific stretches away to the horizon, and sat between them are the twin towns of San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, known together as Los Cabos – the capes. One of Americans’ favourite holiday destinations, yet nearly unknown in Britain, Los Cabos offers almost 70 miles of gold-white beaches
, with dozens of hotels and resorts offering the ultimate luxury
holiday experiences, whether you’re travelling with just your beloved or with your whole extended family
With seven of the top 10 golf
courses in Mexico, according to Golf Digest, Los Cabos is often known as the golfing capital of Latin America. Palmilla Golf Club was Jack Nicklaus’ first venture south of the States, and features his signature design in each of the three nine-hole courses on offer. At Quivira, Nicklaus has extended his excellence to the cliff-side, building in the natural landscape of cacti and dunes to create an 18-holer that is both challenging and picturesque.
When it comes to dinner time, the sudcalifornianos certainly know how to do it right. The richness of the surrounding seas lends itself to a dazzling variety of exquisite dishes
encompassing locally-caught produce from shellfish to octopus and prawns to marlin. Head to Vela Restaurant in San José del Cabo for a thoroughly satisfying taste of Italian cuisine, or for more authentic local dishes you’ll want to hit up El Meson, where the breakfast menu is unrivalled in Mexico.
One of the most iconic sights in the region is undoubtedly El Arco – the natural rock formation that guards the entrance to Cabo San Lucas’ bay and beach, and marks the beginning of the Pacific Ocean. Perfectly framing the setting sun of an evening, it’s the ideal addition to any Instagram feed, and the adjacent beaches
are the perfect spot for soaking up some rays to the sound of the waves.
No matter your worries and stresses, they will evaporate at Los Cabos, where the sunshine never ceases, and the good times never end. Call one of our travel managers now and book your time in paradise – you won’t regret it.
WINGED BOOTS WISDOM
If you’re heading to the sunny shores of Los Cabos during the winter months, you might be lucky enough to spot a pod of whales, who migrate to the warm waters around the peninsula to give birth before making the 6,000-mile journey back to the Arctic in March or April.
