Los Cabos

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.

Los Cabos In A Nutshell

Life’s A Beach
  • Of course, when it comes to beaches, Cabo San Lucas is everyone’s favourite thanks to the stunning rock formations and the nearby spas, bars and restaurants along the town’s seafront, but be warned – it gets pretty crowded during the height of summer, so make sure to get in early to avoid missing out.
     
  • If swimming’s not your forte and you’d rather just relax in the sunshine, Playa Solmar is the beach for you. The Pacific-facing location means swimming is not an option due to the strong offshore currents, so you’re free to relax on the golden sand in calm and tranquility. The whole western coastline stretching up to Santa Margherita Island is cloaked in pristine sands, and are ideal for those who want to lay back in the sun without the need to get your feet wet.
     
  • For those who do love to take a dip, beaches to the east of Cabo San Lucas are all a good bet, and Tequila Cove is one of the best. The man-made break-water there creates a safe haven for swimmers and snorkelers, and it’s ideal for families and those who aren’t particularly confident in the water. The adjacent hotels and restaurants too create the ideal atmosphere for an afternoon of fun and frolic, as well as providing snorkelling equipment for those who want to check out the local marine life.
     
  • A picturesque Eden awaits you at Santa Maria Beach – a protected marine reserve that looks like something out of John Milton. It’s no wonder the legend of the paradise land of California enchanted European explorers for centuries, with waving palms and stunning reefs packing every inch of shallows and shoreline, here as well as at the nearby Chilleno Beach.

     
Don’t Forget Your Kit
 
  • Undoubtedly one of the most popular things to do in Los Cabos is golfing. Boasting 13 clubs throughout the municipality, with some designed by world-renowned designers such as Jack Nicklaus and Davis Love, you certainly won’t be left wanting. Named repeatedly by Golf Digest as one of the best golfing destinations in the world, and certainly the best in Mexico, Los Cabos is picturesque and vibrant, and provides the perfect setting for a relaxing nine or 18 holes.
     
  • The crystalline waters around the Baja California Peninsula are some of the most ecologically diverse in all the world’s oceans, providing the ideal spot for some snorkelling or scuba diving. From the San Jose Estuary – a haven for wetland birds for the twitchers and birders among you – to the reefs and rock pools around Cabo San Lucas and Playa Sirenes, Los Cabos is packed full of biodiversity, making every foray to see the local fauna a sure treat for any intrepid traveller.

     
Tastes To Try
 
  • Mexican cuisine is an international favourite, and for good reason – the variety of aromas and flavours makes for a thoroughly satisfying meal no matter your culinary preferences. In San José del Cabo you’ll find a number of eateries that make the most of the local produce to showcase the vibrant spirit of the sudcalifornianos.
     
  • The Drunken Sailor Restaurant in the marina-side suburb of La Playita serves a range of traditional and international dishes using fresh seafood produce. The shrimp burger here is a particular favourite among locals and tourists alike, and the friendly, intimate atmosphere is certain to charm you.
     
  • The sophisticated El Matador is certainly the spot to go to for a suave and relaxed evening, providing highly personal service and gourmet dining, with a range of international favourites and traditional specialities. The manager – a former matador – is a charming socialite, and will happily recommend wines and sides to complement your meals.
