The area is known as the "Capitol of the Marlin" and Blue, Black and Striped Marlin, as well as Mahi-Mahi, Sailfish, Roosterfish, Tuna and many more fish thrive in the Sea of Cortez. Our Concierge is happy to help you plan your day on the water.

Water Sports

One of Mexico's claims to fame is its transparent blue-green waters. Here, the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific offer you unrivaled sites for scuba diving, snorkeling and whale watching (seasonal). Go for "above" with a glass bottom boat tour, a fishing expedition or a sunset cruise, or be adventurous and go "below" for spectacular scuba diving, snorkeling and diving. Whether you choose to go cruising, jet-skiing, water-skiing, or dive under water, you'll be transfixed by the brilliant crystalline views.

Whale Watching

January to March is the peak time to join one of the many local tour companies on a memorable whale-watching excursion. This is when thousands of grey whales migrate every year from cool Alaska waters to our warm Baja Peninsula. The experience is dreamlike: these majestic creatures bobbing to the surface, piercing the brilliant blue of the Pacific and then dipping away just in time for the flash of your camera. Our Concierge can supply you with more information on these amazing creatures (and the best tours for seeing them).

Spa

The Desert Spa

Feel all the knots and stress slip away as you sink into a deep, relaxed state. Such is the experience at the exquisite Desert Spa. Located in front of Villa del Arco, Villa La Estancia's and Villa del Palmar's sister property, this spa menu takes inspiration from the desert, in particular the fruit and herb extracts native to the Baja California area. Exclusive Desert Spa products have been specifically developed for the restorative and nutritive powers they possess - and for the serenity and enjoyment they offer. Our highly-trained staff goes above and beyond to cater to our guests' needs - whether that's the couples' spa experience complete with private Jacuzzi time or the men's only "spiced" facial.

Our large, 31,000-square foot spa is adjacent to our fitness center allowing an array of choices, both in type of treatments and in available appointments. The Hacienda-inspired center prides itself on its host of indulgences to refresh every inch of your body, including massages, body wraps, facials, hydrotherapy, and couples' experiences. There is also a full service beauty salon onsite, as well as a la carte services and special packages. Did you know? You can book your spa treatments in advance thus allowing more time to play and relax while visiting our resort.

About Cabo

Cabo San Lucas Overview

Beautiful dramatic landscapes, pale sand beaches, turquoise coves, and quiet curves of coastline are just some of what is awaiting you in Los Cabos, where the sculpted scenery is just part of the lure. This former fishing village has become a celebrity hotspot offering the best of both worlds: A mixture of haute beachfront lodgings, gorgeous golf vistas, with a pulsating nightlife and trendy eateries; as well as tidy shops, quaint cafes, serene beauty, and a barefoot/beach-it vibe. Let the sun surround you while you figure out what to do first: A round of golf on pristine greens? Diving with whale sharks at Gordo Banks? Or lay down your towel and slather on the SPF 45? This paradise offers choices galore with 90 percent of the fun simply soaking up the atmosphere and enjoying that get-away-from-it-all feeling.

About Cabo

Few destinations are as celebrated as Cabo San Lucas. This tiny stretch of land, located where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, is home to numerous world-class golf courses, top-notch spas, an underwater nature preserve, pristine beaches, sport fishing and chock-a-block shopping. Known for its California vibe meets Mexican charm (it's one of the number one honeymoon destinations), and dramatic vistas (think spectacular rock formations including its trademark, El Arco), its one of those "you can't go wrong" destinations with just the right combination of natural wonder, local allure, and modern luxury.

Getting Your Bearings

To understand the area, you first need to understand that Los Cabos (translated to "the capes") refers to two different towns (so don't book your hotel thinking you're staying in one when you're really staying in the other). There's the flashy Cabos San Lucas on the west side that says 'Come hither' with its haute-style beachfront lodgings, trendy eateries, gorgeous golf vistas, and LA transplants. And there's San Jose del Cabo, a traditional Mexican village on the Eastern Cape, with its secret springs, solitary sands, miles of back country, artisan shops and laid-back vibe. At some point you'll want to visit of these; only 20 miles apart in an area known as the Tourist Corridor. The scenery here includes multi-million dollar hotels, championship golf courses, and exclusive gated communities as well as stunning views of jewel-toned bays and sun-swept shores.

While each town has its own personality, they share more similarities than differences: stunning geography, vibrant flowering trees, local crafts, and friendly locals. Not to mention that certain je ne sais quois that makes them both so enticing and seductive. No doubt it may take you several trips to discover all the area has to offer.

Cabo San Lucas Fast Facts

Getting There

Cabo San Lucas is located at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula approximately 1,000 miles south of San Diego. You fly into San Jose del Cabo International Airport which is accessible by air from most major cities in the United States and Mexico. Nonstop flights are available from the West Coast and parts of the Southwest; most flights from the East Coast mean at least one stop in Mexico City or Los Angeles and often involve a connecting flight, but this is ever-changing. Passport required.

Weather

Pretty perfect, the average year-round temperature is 78 degrees with an average water temp of 72 degrees with rarely a rainy day. Its cooler months are December and January, and the hottest months are between August and September.

When to Go

Depends on what you're looking for. If you want to be in town for a festival like Semana Santa, which leads up to Easter and is celebrated with parades and passion plays, you'll need to go in March or April; Cinco de Mayo (May 5) commemorates the defeat of the French in 1862; Mexico's independence is celebrated in mid-September with fireworks and parties.

High season is traditionally mid-October to May. This is also the height of sport-fishing. Spring break is also a "hot" time. Whale watching season is from mid-December to mid-April.

A Brief History

Natural beauty is what brought people to Los Cabos thousands of years ago and what intrigues them today. Once inhabited by the Guaycura and Pericu tribes, it was also popular among pirates who used The Arch (El Arco) as a perch to target passing ships. In the mid-18th century Jesuit priests built San Jose del Cabo as a mission. It was a quiet fishing village for many years until celebrities like John Wayne and Bing Crosby discovered it, making it an elite vacation destination.
