Los Cabos....The Capes

Los Cabos….the Capes

Los Cabos, meaning “the Capes,” isn’t really a city. It’s the name Mexican tourism officials bestowed on the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, as well as the 20-mile stretch of coast known as the Tourist Corridor that connects them. Located at the southernmost tip of Baja California Sur, these once remote fishing communities exploded in growth since the 1970s when tourism discovered their local charms, beaches and most importantly sport fishing/

So the question is….where to stay in Los Cabos.   Where to stay in Los Cabos really depends on your interests. Cabo San Lucas is party central with many restaurants, lively bars and nightclubs that stay open until the last patrons leave. Shoppers can find everything from fine leather and silver to cheap souvenir trinkets. At the Marina, touts sell tours and restaurateurs hawk their menu to every passerby, giving it a carnival-like atmosphere. It’s even more frenetic when cruise lines call on Cabo San Lucas, shuttling masses of people to the marina via tenders.

At the other end of the Corridor, San Jose del Cabo is a quieter town with a more historic Mexican feel. A mission church dating to the early 1700s faces a pleasant central plaza which anchors a four-block Arts District. On Thursday nights, dozens of galleries bring their art outside for the weekly Art Walk where it’s fashionable to enjoy a glass of wine, stroll, view and shop. Several fine dining restaurants are also in the heart of the old town.

Wherever you decide to stay, time spent is Los Cabos will be remembered fondly for years to come.  Maybe, like many others, you will decide to stay and call Los Cabos home.
