Where We Are
Winding its way down from the border, covering nearly a thousand miles before it reaches the tip of the peninsula, is perhaps Mexico's most fascinating route. The southern section, from La Paz to Cabo San Lucas, was inaugurated in 1974, opening up a desert wilderness with secluded beaches and waters teeming with fish.
Los Cabos (The Capes) is the area at the very end of the Baja California Peninsula. The isolated fishing camps that just a decade or two ago catered to a handful of visitors who came in their own planes or yachts, are now among the luxury hotels that dot the coast around the two towns: San Jose del Cabo(SJD) and Cabo San Lucas(CSL), connected by a beautiful 20-mile Tourist Corridor(CDR).
Los Cabos was first visited by European missionaries in the 1500´s. At that time the native population, a nomadic tribe called the Pericue that is thought to have migrated from the South Pacific, were the only inhabitants. Early records left by the missionaries describe the Pericu as dark-skinned and sturdy with kind nature.
Major airlines, as well as small feeder lines, now serve the Los Cabos INTERNATIONAL Airport, located seven miles north of San Jose, and about 27 miles north of Cabo. Alaska Airlines, Delta, American Airlines, US Airways, Continental, and local AeroMexico, Volaris, Interjet, VivaAerobus Aerocalafia provide daily service to San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Phoenix, Mazatlan, Guadalajara and Mexico City. Ocean liners that cruise the "Mexican Riviera" make regular stops year-round at Cabo San Lucas.
Los Cabos area has long become a golfers' mecca, offering deluxe courses to choose from. Sport fishing is another big lure for the destination with many annual tournaments being hosted every year. Many of the Cabo San Lucas hotels have their own fishing fleets and the primary quarry of the offshore cruiser fleet is marlin.
With a vibrant nightlife, fantastic dining scene, excellent shopping, water sports and legendary surf Los Cabos offers something for everyone. One of the reasons it is now one of Mexico's major resort areas is its climate: dry year-round. Los Cabos has many American visitors and perhaps because it is geographically separated from mainland Mexico, Los Cabos has acquired a distinct atmosphere and attitude.
