About Cabo San Lucas


Todos Santos

Once a mission and farming center, the colonial town straddles the Tropic of Cancer and offers enough artistically inclined expatriates to make things interesting.

Definitely worth the scenic one-hour drive north from Cabo San Lucas. Todos Santos is not Cabo San Lucas. You will not find time-shares, nightclubs, or beach vendors.

The weather, here is typically 10 degrees cooler than Cabo making it a great place to escape to during Cabo's hot, humid summer.

Missionaries founded Todos Santos in the 1730s, about the same time as San Jose del Cabo. The main focal points of Todos Santos are its Moorish-looking, church and history museum at the Casa de Cultura, plus the town plaza.

The popular Todos Santos Inn, a well-restored 1880s vintage brick compound, previously served as a school, cantina and movie house.

Since the mid-1980s, the area has grown as a tourist / retirement destination and home to numerous art galleries. Known as a popular artist's colony, this has been its claim to fame.

La Paz - approximately 3 hour drive from Cabo San Lucas. La Paz (Peace), is the capital of Baja California Sur. It is not as popular with tourists as the Los Cabos corridor, but it offers much of the same facilities, without sacrificing it's colonial past. It has great shopping, a nice beach-front boulevard, old colonial buildings, and a relaxed atmosphere. It is probably the most 'Mexican' of the Baja cities, and for many people, it is their favorite city on the Baja. La Paz is famous for it's glorious sunsets.

North of the city are the towns of Loreto (a resort area just now beginning to become popular), and Mulege (a town already famous for it's diving spots). Near Mulege is Bahia de Concepcion, one of the best places in the world for diving, snorkeling, kayaking, etc. Protected clear water is the attraction.


The East Cape
Baja’s East Cape region is located on the southern part of Baja California Sur Peninsula, just minutes north east of Los Cabos Mexico is one of the world’s wealthiest and most diverse eco-friendly fisheries on the planet. The East Cape stretches for about 30 km from Punta Colorada north to Punta Pescadero, along lovely Bahía de Palmas. East Cape’s two main communities, Los Barriles and Buenavista, are small villages 3 km apart.

 

Fishing here is outstanding – the area reportedly has the highest catch rate in the world! Whether fishing for tuna, Dorado, marlin, sailfish, roosterfish, wahoo or many of the abundant sportfish, the East Cape of Baja California and the Sea of Cortez is sure to satisfy any anglers’ itch.

This area is also renowned for its world-class windsurfing (bring your own gear!), and excellent surf spots. Check out Punta Arenas, a remote and secluded area catering to hard-core sports enthusiasts, beach campers, and those wanting a peaceful desert-by-the-sea escape.

 

Natural Beauty Caught between the most gorgeous surfing beaches in Cabo, close to the Tropic of Cancer, the East Cape is the last untouched landscape in Baja. Watch the desert mountains disappear into the sea - cactus merging with the surf. Enjoy the company of whales and dolphins while you fish in clear blue water off Punta Perfecta.

Seclusion Tucked away, far from the bustle of your active life, your vacation in East Cape Los Cabos offers you privacy set etween the desert and the sea.

Along Highway 1 are the villages of Santiago, Miraflores and San Bartolo. Simple, tranquil villages with lots of Old Baja charm – reminiscent of the fishing village of Cabo “discovered” in the 70’s.

Santiago

The lovely farming town of Santiago is divided by the large Arroyo de Santiago, and surrounded by fields of mangos, corn, papaya, and citrus trees.

Miraflores

Miraflores is a quaint little town several hundred years old. It is located 40 kilometers north of San José del Cabo and is known locally for its quality leather products and natural hot springs.

A lush oasis famous for its fresh fruits & vegetables. Enjoy the desert flora and fauna and watch the vast species of local birds.
