THE JEWEL OF THE BAJA PENINSULA
Formerly a sleepy fishing port, Los Cabos has transformed into one of the most elite resort destinations in Mexico. Known as “the jewel” of the Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos offers gorgeous scenery, exhilarating water sports, and a staggering 360 days of sunshine per year.
Los Cabos encompasses the area between Cabo San Lucas, a vibrant town known for its nightlife, and San José del Cabo, its quainter, more subdued colonial-style counterpart. Along the 20-mile corridor connecting the two towns, you'll find beautiful white-sand beaches, championship golf courses, and some of the world's very best fishing.
Los Cabos is known globally as the Marlin Capital of the World; its prime location at the intersection of Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez provides a unique nutrient-rich environment where fish like marlin, tuna, dorado, wahoo, and sailfish thrive. Enjoy freshly caught fish prepared by your private villa chef or indulge in one of the fantastic local seafood restaurants.

The Baja California region is geographically separated and isolated from the mainland. Los Cabos' (the Capes) geography is diverse and beautiful, consisting of unspoiled desert landscape, white sandy beaches and dramatic rock outcroppings.
"El Arco," a distinctive rock arch that sits at the tip of Land's End in Cabo San Lucas and represents the precise spot where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, is Los Cabos' most famous geographic landmark.
It was originally occupied by nomadic hunter-gatherers groups called Guaycura. Very little testimonies remain of their presence except for a few cave paintings. The Spanish soon conquered the region and pirate attacks soon followed. Besides the cargo ships from the orient, pirates were attracted by the discovery of pearls in the Sea of Cortez.
Without a stable water source, the fishing towns of Los Cabos remained relatively undeveloped till the 1930s. Baja California Sur was raised to the category of a state in 1974, when tourist resorts such as Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo were developed. It remains one of the states with the lowest population density.
Winter attractions include whale watching as the whales reach the waters of the Pacific from the western beaches of Cabo San Lucas.

San Jose Estuary is located in the far south of the hotel zone, where bird lovers will enjoy this nature reserve, to which approximately 200 species from Rio San Jose emigrate.
The San Jose Swamp, next to San Jose del Cabo, is a salt and fresh water lagoon separated from the sea by a small sandbar. This body of water covers an area of 50 hectares and large numbers of palm trees surround it. It is also inhabited by various species of birds, reptiles, and mammals.
