Los Cabos, or "the Capes," is the place to go for anyone seeking outdoor recreation. It has an abundance of beaches, golf courses, fishing, windsurfing, kayaking, parasailing, diving, and snorkeling. We even saw whales that had come from Alaska to give birth to their babies. The area includes the two towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Cabo San Lucas is a bustling town with restaurants everywhere, a busy marina, and nightlife for the young and the young at heart. New to Cabo is an American-style mall, complete with coffee shop and Haagen-Dazs ice cream. San Jose del Cabo is the quieter, more traditional of the towns. It also boasts some excellent restaurants and an abundance of handi...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Three of the best golf courses are within minutes of the resort. It's close to beaches and it's 13.5 miles to Cabo San Lucas, where you can shop, dine, nightclub, parasail, kayak, fish, windsurf, dive, and snorkel. It's less than 6 miles to the town of San Jose del Cabo, where you can shop for fine handicrafts and enjoy wonderful restaurants. Best Things About the Resort:You never really had to leave the resort. It had everything you could ask for. We loved the suite, with its balcony so close to the ocean that we could hear the sound of the breaking waves. There was a whirlpool bath in the bedroom overlooking the water, which was really enjoyable. There were...Read More

We had a lovely evening at El Chilar. It was off the main street, but well worth looking for. We were pleasantly greeted and seated. The dining room was rustic and had candlelight. In the middle of dinner a mariachi band appeared for about 20 minutes and played traditional mexican music. About a half hour later a guitarist went from table to table and offered to play a musical favorite - all very romantic.The food was wonderfully prepared and presented. I love mussels, but their special mussel dish was made with curry. I'm allergic to curry so my husband asked if they could make the mussels our favorite way - with white wine, shallots, garlic, and butter. They were happy to accommodate and the che...Read More

Attraction

We rented a car and went exploring and found the most beautiful community we’ve ever seen. At the very tip of the Baja peninsula is a private residential community called Pedragal de Cabo San Lucas. From the marina at Cabo, we could see beautiful homes built into the side of the mountain. We were sure that these homes had to have spectacular views so we ventured to the guarded gate to see if we could get a look. The guard requested that he retain our driver’s license and then let us through. Beyond that gate we found a neighborhood that encouraged our imaginations to take us places "where peace and harmony sit on every corner and tranquility resides in every heart". It was paradise! This u...Read More
