All You Wanted To Know About Los Cabos And More!.
Thanks to its close proximity to Canada and easy lift from numerous points throughout the country, Los Cabos is the ideal place to meet up with friends for a mini-break.
Los Cabos, located at the tip of the 1,000-mile long Baja Peninsula, is one of the world's most diverse tourist destinations. Boasting a dramatic desert backdrop nestled by coastlines of the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez, Los Cabos is home to award-winning resorts and culinary offerings considered some of the finest available anywhere.
A growing list of championship golf courses, rejuvenating spas, world-renowned sport fishing tournaments, and state-of-the-art convention facilities add to the destination's unmatched appeal.
Los Cabos is comprised primarily of two towns, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas; which are linked by a 20-mile corridor lined with world-class resort properties and championship golf courses.
Cabo San Lucas, noted for its vitality and nightlife, offers a variety of attractions including the Marina (featuring 380 slips accommodating vessels up to 200 feet), which is regarded as offering the highest quality services and amenities luxury yachters have come to expect.
The attractions in San Jose del Cabo are just as interesting as the more upbeat Cabo San Lucas. The old Jesuit Mission, known as Parroquia San José, dates back to the 1730’s, and the Estero, an estuary with an endless variety of colorful birds and wildlife, are just two of the town’s many attractions.
With so much on offer in the area, it might be hard to narrow down the itinerary.
Here are a few ideas to get your visit off to a great start:
-The Tourist Corridor. From Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo, this corridor runs along the coast and is where most of the hotels in Los Cabos are.
-Beaches. There are many beautiful beaches around Los Cabos, the most famous are: Lover’s Beach, Divorce Beach, El Médano, Chileno Beach, Santa María and Costa Azul
-San Jose Del Cabo. From Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo, this corridor runs along the coast and is where most of the hotels in Los Cabos are.
-The Arch. The distinctive landmark of Cabo San Lucas is the rugged taffy-colored El Arco (The Arch) rock formation that erupts from the sea at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Also known as Land's End, El Arco is a popular tourist attraction and the central focus of countless vacation photos. A visit to Land's End is undoubtedly one of the most popular things to do in Cabo San Lucas. Getting there is easy and you can view the iconic golden arch from your boat or ask the captain to drop you off and arrange a pick-up time. En route you will pass lazy sea lions basking on the rocks.
—Go off-road. Hold on tight as you and your BFFs head out over the desert and along the beach on an ATV tour. These all-terrain vehicles are perfect for navigating the rocky trails that crisscross the canyons and beaches in the vicinity.
—Walk like an Egyptian. Except for the fact that you’re in Mexico, you’ll be forgiven if you think you’re on another continent altogether. Camel safaris may seem a bit out of place but these desert animals are well adapted to the Baja California’s arid climate.
—Take to the high seas. What could be more fun than getting a group of friends together for a sunset or booze cruise? Who’s to say the two are mutually exclusive?
—Whale watching. Every year between November and March pods of humpback whales travel from Alaska to give birth in region’s warm and salty waters. While you may be lucky enough to spot them from your window at the Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, there’s nothing compared to seeing a whale up close.
—It’s a bird. It’s a plane. Fly through the air with the greatest of ease as you experience Los Cabos from above as part of a helicopter tour.
—Tequila. You don’t have to be an aficionado to enjoy a tequila tasting. A variety of tour companies and restaurants offer them so check with the concierge to see what they recommend.
—Wine tasting. Mexican wines were once the middle child of Mexico’s spirits, overshadowed by tequila and mescal. No longer. Today, Mexican wines, especially those from the Baja region, are coming into their own and are decidedly worthy of a sample.
—Gather for the feast. Make a pilgrimage to the tiny town of Todos Santos, home to what is perhaps one of the world’s most sung-of (albeit mistakenly) hostelries, the Hotel California. Though the Eagles were singing about the seedier side of American culture, it’s still fun to visit for the kitsch factor. This quaint town is perfect for a day trip when you can visit art galleries and souvenir shops or head down to the beach for a picnic. And remember, you can check in at any time you want, but you can never leave.
Now, getting together with your nearest and dearest is even easier with an offer from Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos. Groups who book a minimum five rooms confirmed with at least three nights in common can enjoy a host of amenities geared to making their vacation even more special, from signature welcome drinks to private check-in (for common arrivals) and a complimentary room upgrade.
