Halfway between the vibrant blue of the sea and the sand of the desert, today we will discover something new, a privileged place where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez are located: Welcome to Los Cabos!
This destination represents a corridor of just 40 KM that connect Cabo San Lucas and Cabo San Jose, known as the cities of the desert. On the road that runs you will find beautiful beaches where you can practice any type of water sport such as the Medano or the Chilean. For others, you will have to be satisfied only with its wild beauty, since in many of them it is forbidden to bathe due to strong currents.
The arcs-Cabo San Lucas
The excess and the defect form the perfect cocktail in this destination: while Cabo San Lucas is fun, Cabo San Jose represents the most bohemian and colonial part. Be it as it may, an essential visit is the famous Arco, a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, and possibly the most visited place of Cabo San Lucas. Beside it, the beach of Love, romantic meeting point between the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez.
Back to mainland, I can not think of a better place to replenish forces than Cabo Wabo , a relaxed cantina with that chic hippie charm that they do well in Mexico. Try their famous enchiladas, order a cold chela (beer) and most of all have fun, you are in Mexico.
Los Cabos gastronomy
In Cabo San Jose everything is more orderly, more peaceful, like its ocean. The city’s most eco-destination is also the most artistic. Not in vain, an essential visit is the Art District, its bohemian neighborhood full of art galleries of local and international artists. Repone forces in Tequila and ask for table in its idyllic garden. Once here, enjoy.
In the Huerta de los Tamarindos a beautiful organic farm near San José, they teach Mexican cooking classes with products from their orchard, or you can also stay to eat and try some of the Specialties from its bar with Mexican wines, tequila and mezcal, the most fashionable drink now in the country.
And now, relax, we have just arrived at the Hotel Las Ventanas al paraíso , one of the most spectacular of the destination.
With all its suites facing the sea, the most special thing about this Mexican hacienda is not seen, it feels, and is that there is nothing comparable to a spectacular sunset or the vibrant sound of the waves of the sea that is heard from any corner Of the resort. Its friendly staff, outdoor spa and delicious cuisine will do the rest. Viva Mexico!
Highlights: From January to March is the best time for whale watching in the idyllic lagoon of San Ignacio, halfway to the Baja peninsula by the Pacific. Gray whales reach their waters to give birth and feed their offspring. Without doubt, one of the most impressive spectacles of nature.
