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

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.
