All About Los Cabos

Located on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, the town of Los Cabos resides where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. Breathtaking beaches line the resort area of Los Cabos, making it one of the most popular west coast destinations in Mexico. Two towns, lively Cabo San Lucas and laid-back San Jose del Cabo, flank the resort corridor.

While the nightlife in San Jose del Cabo centers around the restaurants and large hotels, Cabo San Lucas is the party capital of Los Cabos. Visitors there can enjoy a wide variety of nightclubs as well as casual and fine dining options.

Once a small fishing town, Los Cabos is now known as the sport fishing capital of the world. It is home to many big game fish including marlin, sailfish, wahoo, dorado and yellowtail, snapper, cabrilla, corvina and roosterfish. If you are looking for a challenge you may want to consider joining in on one of the many fishing tournaments hosted by the marina throughout the year.

If you happen to be in Los Cabos during the winter you can also admire one of the most extraordinary natural phenomena to occur on Mexico’s coasts– the courtship process of the gray whale. It is estimated that 20,000 of these whales migrate to the Mexican coast each year. Learn more about whale watching on the Pacific Coast of Mexico here.

Nature and nightlife—Los Cabos has it all.

All About Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen is located on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, about 40 miles south of Cancun. Originally, a rest stop of sorts for travelers making their way from the great cities of the Mayan world to the island of Cozumel, this once sleepy fishing village has retained its small-town charm. Buildings are low-rise, and the atmosphere is still authentic, but it houses world-class shopping and an entertaining nightlife.

Fifth Avenue is the town’s main pedestrian center where you will find stores selling handmade crafts and jewelry, as well as big name chains and local restaurants. There are clothing stores selling the latest trends from Europe next to vendors dishing out Cuban cigars and local rum. It is a vibrant atmosphere reminiscent of a carnival featuring fire breathers, giant boa constrictors and a cavalcade of characters parading.

For those looking to uncover a bit of authentic Mexico, it is definitely worth the quick taxi ride
