Los Cabos Mexico
Los Cabos would be better described as the two Cabos (San Jose del
Cabo and Cabo San Lucas) connected by a developing stretch of beach
known only as the Corridor.
SAN JOSE DEL CABO is best known as the part of Los Cabos
that caters to the older, slightly more reserved crowd.
Great resorts on great beaches may lead one to assume that there
is great swimming here too. Well, there isn't. The waters on the
Pacific side of the peninsula are rough and dangerous, pounding surf,
strong rip tides and under-tows. If you want to swim, you should
head for Playa Palmilla in the Corridor.
The main street in San Jose del Cabo is Boulevard Mijares which
runs from City Hall to the tourist zone on the south side. In spite
of the myriad of expensive resorts which line the beach, the town
has remained walking distance small with everything you need on the
CABO SAN LUCAS is the part of Los Cabos that tends towards
golfers, the party crowd and those looking for a more lively nightlife
scene. Again, nice resorts, great beaches and a nice town center.
The main strip here is Avenida Lazaro Cardenas. Again, the town
is walking distance and you will find trendy restaurants, shopping,
nightlife and tour operators here in the tourist zone.
The activities offered in Cabo San Lucas are what make it so attractive
to the more active (younger) crowd. Some come seeking the year round
spring break, others the golf, sport fishing, surfing, scuba diving
. . . and the list goes on (but we will cover that in the Attractions
THE CORRIDOR REGION is the area between the two towns that
has some of the best beaches in Baja. There is no town to speak of
along this 17 mile (28 km) stretch of beach (and no lights at night)
. . . but there are resorts sprinkled along the way.
Most visitors to Los Cabos are Californians making there way down
the coast by car or by plane. Though there are flights into Los Cabos
from other areas of the US as well. Wherever you are from, just remember
that the warm winter weather is largely due to the fact that the
Baja peninsula is a desert . . . so pack accordingly.
Cabo San Lucas Real Estate :
Due to its proximity to the United States,
Cabo San Lucas real estate has grown in popularity. The highway connecting
Baja California and the US is well paved and makes it easy to reach
by car. There is also an airport with direct flights from major cities
in the US. The flight is about 2 hours from San Diego. Cabo San Lucas
generally attracts those that are looking to spend several months
in Cabo or those that are looking for property to spend most of the
year. The main property types found in Cabo are condos and homes.
