Located at the southernmost tip of Baja California -- a scraggly desert peninsula straddling the crystal blue Sea of Cortés and the wild Pacific Ocean -- are the towns of San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, collectively known as Los Cabos ("the capes"). Cabo San Lucas is the party town, San José del Cabo is quaint and quiet, and the strip of coast in between (known as "The Corridor") is fertile soil for some of the most extravagantly luxurious resorts in Mexico and some of the world's best golf courses.
Like many Mexican beach destinations, the best time to visit Los Cabos is from Christmas to Easter. Whale watching season is December to March and great fishing is available year-round. Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo are 21 miles apart and the easiest way to explore the area is with a rental car.
The Los Cabos area, located where the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortés meet, creates a mecca for those who are attracted to beaches and water. The shoreline between Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo is lined with coves and long stretches of beach -- there are nearly 20 beaches in the area to enjoy. See our Los Cabos beach guide.
Before Los Cabos was a celebrity playground, it was an undeveloped sportfishing paradise. The waters off the coast are famous for sailfish and yellowtail tuna, as well as 100-pound black, blue and striped marlin. Humans aren't the only visitors who flock to Los Cabos in the winter. From December through March, thousands of gray whales arrive from Alaska. While not as well known as Cozumel and Cancun, Los Cabos offers a unique diving experience and fine surfing areas. Check out our Los Cabos fishing guide.
While nightlife options can be found in Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, the areas are distinctly different. Cabo San Lucas is known as the party town of the Baja Peninsula. In San José del Cabo you'll find a more subdued nightlife scene that showcases live music and some of the area's unique culture. See our Los Cabos nightlife guide. Before you head out to the clubs, check out our Los Cabos dining guide for a place to eat.
When you think Los Cabos, what comes to mind is rugged beaches, beautiful waters, enormous cacti, world-class spas and outstanding golf courses. You can't go wrong with a golf vacation in Los Cabos. See our Los Cabos golf guide.
Los Cabos may be a popular party destination, but its nearby attractions are for the entire family to enjoy. Fossil canyon hikes, whale watching, cactus gardens and off-road tours, make Los Cabos the perfect spot to go on an adventure. Check out Los Cabos attractions.
