Los Cabos Tid Bits
Los Cabos (The Capes) actually refers to two towns ─ San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas ─ and to the 20-mile corridor that connects the towns at the south end of the Baja Peninsula.
Though both resorts boast white beaches and tranquil, turquoise waters, Cabo San Lucas attracts large sport-fishing fleets and more than 1,500,000 visitors annually.
Whether visiting the natural rock arches of El Arco and Land’s End (where the Pacific and Sea of Cortez meet), or surfing the gigantic swells of Boca del Tule, there is something spectacular to behold for Los Cabos visitors.
Activities abound for the adventurous and sports-minded. Fishing is still the main draw of the area, with 1000+ pound Marlin still a possibility. Dive ships offer full snorkel and scuba trips, including all equipment and the safety of a modern decompression chamber at the marina. A new marina being built in San Jose with a 400,000 million investment.
Golf is a major issue, with 8 champion-designed courses, and 340 sunny days a year, if you are serious about golfing, so is Los Cabos.
All-terrain ground vehicle tours get you to the outlying mountains and coastlines. Moonlit horseback riding along miles of deserted beach, culinary delights abound, and dancing ’til dawn rounds out the evening pleasures available.
Los Cabos is just beginning. The steps taken as recently as December 1993 in the liberalization of property ownership rights, foreign business operation procedure, and advantageous tax treatment are indicators of Mexico’s desire to attract and keep foreign interest and investors.
In these important times, Los Cabos is securing its place as a leading world-class tourist destination and a center for pleasure and profit for Mexican and foreigners alike for years to come.
