A brief history - Cabo San Lucas

Archaeological excavations have shown evidence of continual human habitation in the area for at least 10,000 years.[3] When the first Europeans arrived, they encountered the Pericú people, who survived on a subsistence diet based on hunting and gathering seedsrootsshellfish, and other marine resources. They called the location Yenecamú.

According to the narrative of Hatsutaro, a Japanese castaway, in the book Kaigai Ibun (written by Maekawa, Junzo and Bunzo Sakai and narrated by Hatsutaro), when he arrived at Cabo San Lucas in May 1842, there were only two houses and about 20 inhabitants. However, American authors such as Henry Edwards and John Ross Browne claim that Cabo San Lucas's founder was an Englishman named Thomas "Old Tom" Ritchie. John Ross Browne says Ritchie arrived there about 1828, while Edwards says that he died in October 1874.[4]

A fishing village began growing in the area. In 1917, an American company built a floating platform to catch tuna, and ten years later founded Compañía de Productos Marinos S.A. The plant operated for several years. 

Costa Azul, Great Surf Spot

In between Cabo San Lucas and the San Jose Airport, on the only paved road that runs along the shore. The Costa Azul Surf Shop is on the land side of the road, the surf beach is almost across the street, but down the cliff. Access is through hotel/private property, but nobody seemed to mind. 

3 sections (they are connected with the biggest swells): Acapulcito: only breaks with big swells, long rides. The Rock: the most popular, crowded. Zippers: hollow fast right. Costa Azul, for those who can make their way there, is unbelievable. The water is bathwater warm, the sea is deep blue, the water is clean, the beach is pure white, there are only a handful of surfers sharing more than enough waves. AND THE WAVES are unbelievable. 5+ feet, consistent, powerful. The bottom is a little scary during low tide. And the rides are LONG, all the way into the shore from way, way out. Later in the day conditions pick up and the waves get bigger (6-8ft), coming in sets of 3-5, making it really hard to paddle out, so I sat on the beach while my boyfriend and his buddy got pummeled. I know this sounds like a stupid chick review because I really don't know that much about surfing, but I do know that Costa Azul is a great place, and even if I'm wrong about surfing, where else can you buy beer for 50 cents and drink it while you are driving down the most amazing stretch of coastline

Golf Courses Guide

North America’s Hottest Golf Destination, Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Mexico

Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area, in the span of a few short years, has become one of North America’s hottest golf destinations—and it’s no wonder. The Tom Weiskopf designed eighteen-hole Desert Course at Cabo del Sol, marks the sixth championship golf course to open here in the Cabo San Lucas area.From humble beginnings at the nine hole Campo de Golf in San Jose del Cabo, in the last decade golf has grown to become the number two attraction in Los Cabos.
The municipality of Los Cabos, an area comprising roughly half of the Baja California Sur peninsula below the capital city of La Paz, includes Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, The Tourist Corridor and Todos Santos. In 1990, it was Don Koll, a dedicated golfer and successful California developer who commissioned Hall of Fame great, Jack Nicklaus, to design twenty-seven holes of golf at the Palmilla (now One&Only Palmilla) resort.
The impact on Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area has been phenomenal. Koll envisioned this area as a world-class resort vacation center, and today there are three Nicklaus designed golf courses in Los Cabos—twenty-seven holes at Palmilla, eighteen holes at the Eldorado Golf Club at Cabo Real, and eighteen holes at Cabo del Sol. To round things out, there are the Robert Trent Jones II designed Cabo Real Golf Club, Dye Corporation designed Cabo San Lucas Country Club and the Tom Weiskopf designed eighteen-hole Desert Course at Cabo del Sol along the Tourist Corridor between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.
Los Cabos has been the site of the PGA Senior Slam Tournament since 1995, attracting golf greats such as Raymond Floyd, Dave Stockman and Hale Irwin.
Though considered by some as intimidating, the six signature championship golf courses are pricey to play, but ultimately playable. Low handicappers will find them challenging and will appreciate the genius and skill that went into their designs, while less experienced players will be rewarded with a good day’s combat.
The magnificent terrain is comparable to that found in Arizona and California desert golf courses. What sets Los Cabos apart is the presence of the Sea of Cortez, a sparkling water-wonderland of incredible hues reaching as far south as the eye can see.
Golfers here in Cabo San Lucas Mexico have an added bonus...eleven months of rain-free vacation play.

Tequila Tasting

Tequila is a regional specific name for a distilled beverage made from the blue agave plant, primarily in the area surrounding the city of Tequila, 65 km (40 mi) northwest of Guadalajara, and in the highlands (Los Altos) of the central western Mexican state of Jalisco

Mexican laws state that tequila can only be produced in the state of Jalisco and limited municipalities in the states of GuanajuatoMichoacánNayarit, and Tamaulipas. Tequila is recognized as a Mexican designation of origin product in more than 40 countries. It is protected through NAFTA in Canada and the United States,[5] through bilateral agreements with individual countries such as Japan and Israel, and has been a protected designation of origin product in the constituent countries of the European Union since 1997.

Tequila is most often made at a 38% alcohol content (76 U.S. proof) for domestic consumption, but can be produced between 31 and 55% alcohol content (62 and 110 U.S. proof). Per U.S law, tequila must contain at least 40% alcohol (80 U.S. proof) to be sold in the United States.

Lover's Beach

The first things that come to mind when hearing the words Lovers Beach may be a quiet, romantic place where you’d have the whole beach to yourself and a special someone to share it with. This is not exactly the real deal. That aside, Lovers Beach is, however, a fun place for everyone to visit. In fact, we recommend coming here at least once in your trip to Cabo San Lucas. Due to its natural setting, there aren’t any restrooms or showers here. Don’t forget to pack along sunscreen because it gets pretty hot during the day, and there are no shades provided as in other Cabo beaches.

Though it’s not quite the secluded and quiet beach you may have thought it to be, you will find the geography of Lovers Beach very appealing all around. Neptune’s Finger, a large rock that protrudes out of the sea, can be seen from this beach. A five minute walk west from Lovers Beach will take you to Divorce Beach. It probably got this name because of its strong rip currents and rough waves that hit the shore here. Divorce Beach is not safe for swimming in, but it does feel more secluded than its neighbor; and those staying later than most folks can get a view of the sun setting in the Pacific.

You won’t be able to get to Lovers Beach by car or by foot. Unless you’re an experienced rock climber, a water taxi ride from Médano Beach or the marina is your best bet. Fares average about $10 US per person round-trip for a tour in the glass-bottomed boat. They’ll first tour Land’s End so you can see the fish underneath, and then they’ll take you near El Arco, Cabo’s famous arch (not to mention a good opportunity for nice photos) before dropping you off at the beach. Engine failures happen more often than you’d think, but sometimes they can be resolved within minutes if you have a good driver. Surprisingly, we saw more fish while looking directly through the surface of the water than through the glass bottom. This is possible thanks to the exceptionally clear water around the Lovers Beach area.

Art District San José

In Baja, México behind San Jose del Cabo’s historic main square and church lies the ever-growing Gallery District, which in recent years has become the cultural center of Los Cabos with many high-end fine art galleries displaying original paintings, sculpture, photography, prints and jewelry by local, national and international contemporary artists. Among these art galleries are shops housing the works by the top folk artists and artisans of Cabo & Mexico. Along with an abundance of galleries, the Art District is home to some of the area’s top restaurants.


The district is the result of the collaboration of 14 major galleries found in the area. Each gallery is a prominent member of the art association and dedicates a large amount of time and energy into creating an inspiring atmosphere for visitors and locals alike.

The crowned jewel of the Gallery District is the internationally known Art Walk, which continuously stands as the Baja Sur's #1 recurring event. The Art Walk takes place from 5-9 pm, every thursday night, and runs from October through June. The district itself has been highly invested in with the new construction and architecture, creating a beautiful setting with walkable streets and a breathable atmosphere. 


The Gallery district is the perfect choice for travelers looking to escape from the overly active hustle and bustle of Cabo, and enjoy the opportunity to enjoy a meal, a glass of wine, some live music, and above all some stunning art work. 
 

Los Cabos Corridor

 

Amazing Views

The Los Cabos Corridor (Corredor Turistico) in Mexico, is an area on the southern coast of theBaja California Peninsula, facing the Gulf of California on the Transpeninsular Highway betweenSan José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.[citation needed] It stretches about 30 kilometers along the highway and addresses within this area are usually specified in terms of distances from the start of Highway 1. The corridor is a popular tourist destination due to its many beach resorts,golf courses, and sport fishing.

The Arch

Land's End 

The arch of Cabo San Lucas, is a distinctive rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas, which is itself the extreme southern end of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. The arch is locally known as El Arco.

This area is widely used in hotel advertising in the Los Cabos Corridor. This spot is a popular gathering area for sea lions. It served as a backdrop for The Marshall Tucker Band's Third Album under the leadership of Billy Sanders. This location is a great tourist attraction. It is three stories tall and was formed from massive erosion.
