Los Cabos means the ‘end’ or the ‘tip.’ Los Cabos is located south of San Diego in the part of Mexico between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez, known as Baja California Sur. The most popular tourist destinations in Los Cabos are Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, both of which are located along opposite ends of what is known as the corridor.
This stretch of highway between the cities runs along the Sea of Cortez, and is only about 18 miles long, and offers tourists a great selection of five-star resorts, world-class golf, fine dining, and water sports. A great site to check out is www.visitcabo.com. It has a ton of information for you to check out including how to get to Los Cabos, where to stay, and what there is to do while you are there.
Depending on what time of year you plan to visit Los Cabos, there is always something going on. Deep-sea fishing is prevalent, as Cabo San Lucas is known as the Marlin Capital of the World. Many visitors enjoy sport fishing year-round.
Some varieties are more frequent during certain months, like swordfish and marlin, which are in season during late October through December. These types of trophy fish are catch and release only, and can sometimes be as large as 1000 pounds! Other prevalent species are mahi-mahi and yellowfin tuna and maybe kept if so desired. Fishing trips can be booked for a half-day, full-day, or multiple days, and even offer meals and luxurious overnight accommodations if this is what you want. According to the Los Cabos website, there are over 500 fishing boats from the more modest to most luxurious awaiting you.
During January through April, thousands of gray whales make their way down the Pacific coast to birth their calves, and many continue their travels around the tip of Los Cabos into the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez! It is not uncommon to be hanging out in the pool at your resort and spot a whale breaching in the near distance. What a sight to see!. I’ve experienced this myself, and it is truly spectacular! If you want a closer view, you can charter a whale watching trip that includes drinks, snacks, and dinner with transportation to and from your hotel. This is an excellent opportunity to experience nature and a genuinely remarkable picture-taking opportunity.
If fishing is your sport, then Los Cabos is your vacation destination. Many visitors return annually just for this reason; because there is no more magnificent fishing in the world. Whatever your price range, there is a fishing boat waiting to accommodate you, and they guarantee you will catch fish. If you are after a particular kind, such as marlin or swordfish, book ahead, because this is, after all, the Marlin Capital of the World!
