Why visit Los Cabos?

Perched on Mexico’s sunny and stunning Baja California Peninsula, this region is famous for its stunning beaches such as Cabo San Lucas with its famous rock formations. Away from the bustling tourist hubs such as all-inclusive and adults only Marquis Los Cabos and family-loving Krystal Grand Los Cabos are stunning towns such as San Jose Del Cabo which transport you to the traditional Mexico.

San Jose Del Cabo provides respite from the busier Baja resorts with shops and restaurants.

When should I visit?

Must-sees?

An image you may not expect to see on the bustling Mexican beaches are camels, but they are here, so why not take a short tour on one?
Los Cabos likes to celebrate relationships! You can choose between Lovers Beach with its calm heavenly waters, or Divorce Beach with its choppier waves.
Alternatively, why not take to the turquoise Pacific waters for some snorkelling at Pelican Rock, Santa Maria Bay or Chileno Bay and meet the local marine life?
There are also plenty of sights to see nearby; take a hike through the vast National Reserve Sierra de la Laguna which provides water for the area; e enjoy a day trip to neighbouring city La Paz and enjoy the bustling waterfront promenade or visit the enchanting town (it really is thanks to Mexico’s Secretariat of Tourism defining it as Pueblo Magico) of Todos Santos with its white-washed one-story houses and Art-Deco 1944 cinema.
With Los Cabos being so close to California, you could soak up the showbusiness backdrop of Los Angeles on your trip with it only being a two and a half hour flight away.

Local traditions?

Empecemos la fiesta ... let’s get the fiesta started, you will love it! Between March 16th and March 22nd every year, a party laden with colour takes over San Jose Del Cabo. Mexican music beats along the pavements, as well as dancing, street food and horse riding. The festival celebrates Saint Joseph, the patron saint of the town who built the Anuiti Mission in 1730 and in turn helped construct the beginnings of San Jose Del Cabo.
