Holidays in Los Cabos
A high end municipality and world class tourist resort located on the southern end of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula, Los Cabos is the perfect Mexican holiday destination for unwinding, pampering and relaxing at one of its many five-star hotels and resorts. It comprises two small seaside towns, the Cabo San Lucas (popular for its top luxury hotels and exclusive beach resorts) and San Jose del Cabo (the area's municipal seat with a more vintage feel, reminiscent of an older time). These two gorgeous, sunshine-filled towns are linked together by the Resort Corridor, a popular area spanning along 30 long kilometres dotted with many beach resorts, sport fishing facilities and golf courses. Once upon a time, the area's economy depended mainly on fishing but, like many other glitzy beach resorts in Mexico, Los Cabos are now driven by tourism with golf and sport fishing being the two main attractions that lure travellers to the area for luxurious and totally relaxed beach holidays.
Unlike the more upbeat, trendy and crowded beach resort area of Canun, in the Mexican Caribbean,a slower pace of life reigns in Los Cabos, with much more tranquil surroundings and definitely fewer night clubs and fewer American young travellers and spring breakers. Ideal for couples and honeymooners, Los Cabos offer luxurious and gentle recreation, including luxury yachting marinas and the iconic, UNESCO World Heritage Site of The Arch, a stunning rock formation next to Lover's Beach (Playa del Amor) where couples can take romantic strolls when the tide is low. Serene and secluded, Los Cabos is the favourite hideaway spot of the rich and famous and many celebrities regularly visit (Jennifer Aniston, for instance is a well-known fan of the are and is a frequent guest at some of Los Cabos' most exclusive, top luxury resorts).
