Cabo is back, baby! For your next weekend getaway, head south of the border for a different kind of adventure...
¡Sí se puede! Just a quick two-hour hop from LA, Los Cabos has gotten in touch with its natural (read: beautiful) side to attract a more sophisticated, activity-mad clientele.
Known for its wild party scene (Señor Frogs, Cabo Wabo), the city that sits between the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean is no longer just a Spring Break destination. With luxury amenities and sporty activities galore, rediscover a health-obsessed Mexico via the new (and improved!) Cabo.
Whether you’re staying on the San José del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas side of the peninsula, stay active at one of the many luxury resorts dotting the white sand beaches. Head to the One and Only Palmilla for sun-and-fun-soaked activities such as watersports (kayaking, stand-up paddleboarding, snorkeling) and deep-sea fishing—Los Cabos is known as the “Marlin Capital of the World” and offers more than 800 species of game fish. This summer, the city also plays host to the 20th annual Stars & Stripes Tournament (June 23–26), a four-day golf, fishing, and music festival.
If you’re looking to up the sports ante, get your engines revved with Esperanza Resort’s off-roading activities such as the Baja 1000 Desert Racing, a day of auto careening like a pro. Or swim with whale sharks alongside guides who will whisk you on an eight-hour day trip to La Paz, where these gentle giants—up to 40 feet long!—feed on plankton.
