ABOUT CABO

clientuploads/diving.jpg

THE NAME:

Los Cabos, meaning “the Capes”, is located on the southern tip of Mexico’s California Baja peninsula and consists of two towns – San Jose del Cabo (Cape of St. Joesph) and Cabo San Lucas (Cape of St. Lucas), as well as the surrounding areas of Cabo Pulmo and Los Barriles.

CLIMATE:

The desert mountains divide two major bodies of water, the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez creating a unique climate of warm tropical weather without the humidity. Los Cabos has an average temperature of 28 C / 82 F. The sun shines year round, the air is dry and the sea breeze cooling. The months of August and September are considered our 'rainy season' and tend to get significantly warmer. Hurricanes have been known to come our way, however, the majority of the time they either head West before coming into contact with the Baja or break-up and weaken as they come in contact with the division of the two bodies of water.

GETTING THERE:

Los Cabos is only a two-and-a-half hour flight from southern and western U.S. airports, with direct flights from almost every major city in North America. The airport has recently undergone major renovations including the addition of a new modern international terminal as well as an improved FBO for private aircraft. By road, it is 1000 miles south of San Diego, California. It also features two scenic marinas, one in Cabo San Lucas and one in San Jose del Cabo. Easy access by plane, car and boat has made it one of the top tourist destinations in the world.

SAFETY:

The State Department has recently named Southern Baja one of the safest destinations in North America, as the Los Cabos area does not feel the effects of violence reported in the border towns of mainland Mexico. Los Cabos is much like an island, surrounded by water on 3 sides with only 1 major highway in and out, making it one of the safest areas in all of Mexico. Los Cabos is quite often compared to quiet towns in the U.S and Canada when it comes to comfort and safety.

ACTIVITIES:

Los Cabos has become one of the world’s top tourist destinations, famous for its abundant waters, rolling green fairways, arts culture and lively nightlife.

The area first began attracting foreigners to its pristine shores in the 1950s as the quiet Mexican fishing village slowly gained attention for it's incredible deep-sea fishing. Since then, the bountiful waters of the Sea of Cortez have drawn travelers from around the globe and Los Cabos has earned praise as one of the best places to catch trophy fish - hosting some of the world's richest fishing tournaments including The Bisbee Classic. ESPN has named this annual event "..the Super Bowl of Fishing...", with millions of dollars in prizes awarded each year.

Since the mid-90s, Los Cabos has also become one of North America’s hottest golf destinations boasting a dozen world-class championship courses designed by some of the biggest names in the game including Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones III, Tom Weiskopf, and most recently, Tiger Woods.

With its endless coastline, blue water bays and desert landscape, Los Cabos has enough activities to entertain the whole family. From water sports such as Sea-dooing, surfing, swimming with dolphins, and snorkeling with the majestic Whale Sharks to ATV tours, zip lining and art walks, Los Cabos is one of Mexico’s most dynamic and diverse destinations. It is now a draw for major international sporting and cultural events including Surf competitions, Stand-up Paddleboard races, International Film Festivals and, most recently, the Ironman Competition. Los Cabos has become one of the most desired destinations in North America, not only to vacation...but also to call home.
