Los Cabos consists of two decidedly different cities: San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.
Cabo San Lucas is a foodies dream with fantastic options in both Mexican and International cuisines. Beaches are another thing that this area is especially famous for.
Be sure to check out the Cabo San Lucas Marina for a variety of ocean activities such as fishing trips, sailing excursions, sunset cruises and seasonal whale watching. Along the Marina you will also find wonderful artisanal shops, restaurants, bars and night clubs to name a few.
And of course you will also find Medano Beach and golf courses near by.
San Jose del Cabo on the other hand is considered the cultural hub of Los Cabos.
With cobblestone streets and a strong art gallery vibe, San Jose del Cabo is the quieter, more laid back sister of the two cities.
Now before you go thinking this makes San Jose del Cabo boring or sleeping, be advised that farm to table dining, art walks and cultural museums are just some of the activities that makes this area divine.
There is a 20 mile corridor that separates the two cities – known as the Tourist Corridor. This spectacular stretch is home to glorious beaches, luxury resorts, and oceanfront golf courses and is a must see while in Los Cabos regardless of where you are staying.
For those looking for something a bit more off the beaten path, check out the relatively newish development called East Cape.
East Cape provides visitors an especially pristine part of Los Cabos. Here visitors will also find the Cabo Pulmo National Park.
Located about two hours from San Jose del Cabo, this marine preserve has been named a UNESCO World Heritage site. It harbors one of only three coral reefs in North America making it idea for snorkeling and scuba diving.
