Paradise Found in Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas is back and better than ever! Natural disasters have a way of bringing people together and that’s certainly the case with Cabo San Lucas; after the hurricane of 2014 ravaged this paradisiacal destination, it’s finally returning to its glory.
Cabo, the crown jewel of the Baja Peninsula, has something for everyone, from larger, all–inclusive resorts (which include many of your meals and beverages) to smaller boutique hotels along quiet and tranquil private beaches. Unlike vacation spots on the east coast that are dictated by seasons, we’re fortunate to have access to this beautiful escape 24/7, 365.
For decades, Cabo has been the destination of many A–list celebrities dating back to the ‘40s. This vacation spot has hosted stars like Bing Crosby, Ernest Hemingway, Lucille Ball, John Wayne, Jennifer Aniston, George Clooney, Cindy Crawford and Oprah Winfrey.
There are lots of resorts and hotels open now with even more opening their doors through 2017. These new properties, coupled with a variety of activities, will ensure that you will have an unforgettable vacation experience, leaving you wanting to return again—and often.
If you’re looking for a private beach and cove kind of experience, we suggest Solmar Resort, Sandos Finisterra, Esperanza, Pueblo Bonito Pacifica, Villa La Estancia, The Ridge at Playa Grande, ME Cabo, and Montecristo Estates.
There are even more choices and an abundance of restaurants along the way. Enjoy the many amenities and experiences that these hotels and resorts have to offer. Worth noting is The Cape, A Thompson Hotel, where you can allow your imagination to turn into reality as you experience a side of Los Cabos that you never knew existed, where the soul willingly surrenders to el sol. It’s a fresh and vibrant approach to Los Cabos luxury—a singular beachfront retreat commanding a contour of the cape where every room and vantage point overlook El Arco and the Bahía San Lucas horizon.
Grand Solmar Land’s End Resort & Spa is a place where attention to detail is of utmost importance. Enjoy a cocktail while relaxing in their infinity edge pool, nestled between the cliffs and the sea, or enjoy the breeze while relaxing in a cabana. Their staff awaits your arrival. Get ready to be spoiled beyond compare.
Looking for that Vegas vibe? The chic, modern and hip Breathless Cabo San Lucas is adults only. This all–inclusive property is designed to envelop you in a non–stop party.
Once settled in, activities are bountiful; you’re sure to create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime. Cabo Adventures offers many choices for different levels of adrenaline rush. Zip–line like Superman over the desert canopy on Mexico’s longest and fastest zip–line at speeds up to 60 m.p.h. and length of 4,000 feet. Are land adventures your thing? Then hop into an off road UTV buggy and zoom off into the beautiful desert. This thrill–a–second adventure is a sure way to get the adrenaline going.
Sailing in serene and calm waters while enjoying the warm winds of Cabo can take you on a journey of discovery and adventure aboard a luxury sailing boat. Spend the day exploring the stunning coastline with secluded coves and beaches. Photos of that sunset as it meets the deep blue waters of the Pacific will be yours for the taking. Or capture a different view from the air. Air adventures by fixed wing aircraft or by helicopter offer a unique way to view the coastline and see Cabo in all its glory. Be sure to bring your camera to take photos of these breathtaking views.
A need for speed creates a fast–paced day as you cruise along the coast in a high–speed, inflatable boat, past the homes of the rich and famous, as an expert guide educates you on the area and sea life. Be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins and, in the winter, humpback whales. Prefer to be closer to the dolphin? Then a dolphin swim is sure to bring smiles to the entire family! In a small group setting, you can swim, take photos and learn about these amazing creatures.
Create a memorable journey with certified divers and view the slopes of the ocean covered with sea fans. Swim among schools of fish, eels, lobsters and rays and spot occasional mantas passing by. Warm and inviting clear turquoise waters will surround you as you snorkel after dropping anchor in a spectacular cove. Relax as you swim, snorkel or power–snorkel with water scooters. Take your time while looking for rays and sea turtles, pausing to admire the varied species of tropical fish and colorful coral among the rugged rock formations that house the teeming sea life.
Planning your vacation has never been easier as Cabo welcomes nearly 2,000 new rooms over the next two years. As for arrival, you have plenty of choices of airlines: American Airlines, Alaska Airlines, Delta Airlines, Frontier Airlines, Jet Blue, LAN Airlines, Southwest Airlines, Qantas, United Airlines, and Virgin Airlines can all take you straight to Cabo. Plenty of cruise lines also offer Cabo San Lucas as a port of call, including Carnival, Celebrity Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Holland America Line, Norwegian Cruise Line and Princess.
