With coastline that stretches from the Sea of Cortez to the Pacific Ocean, and 350 sunny days a year, Los Cabos is Mexico's ultimate seaside escape. It's endless summer at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, and surfers, golfers, divers, and hikers come here for year-round water sports and outdoor activities. The sister towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo offer distinct experiences that range from bar night life to Thursday night Art Walks. Between them the Corridor presents everything for the perfect honeymoon or family vacation.
Top Reasons to go: BEACHES More than 50 miles of gorgeous strands with towering rock formations. GOLF Spectacular views from greens designed by the world's best course architects. NIGHTLIFE Cabo's after-dark, into-the-dawn party scene draws a loud, festive crowd. SPORTFISHING Beginners and pros drop a line in the "Marlin Capital of the World." WHALE WATCHING The gentle giants that migrate here swim right next to the boats. SPAS Desert healing treatments in sumptuous resort wellness centers.

Prepare yourself for an array of culinary delights. The competition, creativity, selection, and, yes, even the prices are utterly beyond comprehension. From elegant dining rooms to casual seafood cafés to simple taquerías, Los Cabos serves up anything from standard to thrilling fare. Seafood is the true highlight here. Fresh catches that land on the menus include dorado (mahimahi), lenguado (halibut), cabrilla (sea bass), jurel (yellowtail), wahoo, and marlin. Local lobster, shrimp, and octopus are particularly good. 

Los Cabos may not have a whole lot of homegrown wares, but the stores are filled with beautiful and unusual items from all over mainland Mexico. You can find hand-painted blue Talavera tiles from Puebla; blue-and-yellow pottery from Guanajuato; black pottery from San Bartolo Coyotepec (near Oaxaca); hammocks from the Yucatán; embroidered clothing from Oaxaca, Chiapas, and the Yucatán; silver jewelry from Taxco; fire opals from Queretaro; and the fine beaded crafts of the Huichol tribe from Nayarit and Jalisco. Thursday Art Walk in San Jose Del Cabo is a treat and gives you a wonderful cultural perspective on Mexican art.

Los Cabos manufactures glassware from Fábrica de Vidrio Soplado (Blown-Glass Factory). In addition, a burgeoning arts scene has national and international artists opening galleries and, in fact, a large number of galleries now abound throughout Los Cabos, with many in San José del Cabo's rapidly evolving city center and more dotted throughout Todos Santos's historic downtown. 

Indeed, Cabo is internationally famous (or infamous, depending on your view) for being a raucous party town, especially during spring break. On the other hand, nightlife in San José del Cabo is much more low-key: it's more about a good drink and conversation as opposed to the table-dancing chaos you'll find in some Cabo hot spots.

Cinemex Los Cabos at the Marina based Puerto Paraíso shopping mall offers 10 screens, including a VIP screening room furnished with reclining leather seats. First-run Hollywood movies are shown usually in English with Spanish subtitles (subtitulada or versión original), just a few weeks behind premieres in the States. Kids' movies are the exception: they will be dubbed (doblada or versión español) into Spanish since their very young fans don't read subtitles. Website: www.cinesdemexico.com/baja-california-sur/cabo-san-lucas/cinemex-los-cabos
Cinépolis presents a selection of American movies for lower prices, generally a few weeks behind what's showing in the U.S. There are usually six to eight films playing, with the last feature starting around 11 pm. Website: www.cinepolis.com.mx

Los Cabos has become one of the world's top golf destinations. Fontour expanded Los Cabos' appeal beyond sportfishing by opening a 9-hole course in San José, featuring some of the best winter weather in North America. You will encounter many sublime views of the Sea of Cortez, and, on a few courses, play alongside it. The overall quality of golf is quite high, with the likes of Tom Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones II, Tom Weiskopf, Roy Dye, Greg Norman, and now Tiger Woods applying their design talents here.

One of the most popular, practical, and eco-friendly ways to explore the pristine coves that dot Los Cabos' western shoreline is by kayak. Single or double kayaks can be rented by the hour for $15 to $20.

Expert divers head to the Gordo Banks (100–130 feet; also known as the Wahoo Banks), which are 13 km (8 miles) off the coast of San José. The currents here are too strong for less experienced divers. This is the spot for hammerhead sharks—which are not generally aggressive with divers—plus many species of tropical fish and rays, and, if you're lucky, dolphins. Fall is the best time to go. Rather than book through an independent agent roaming both marinas, it's best to reserve through a reputable company in an actual office. 

The Corridor has several popular diving sites. Bahía Santa Maria (20–60 feet) has water clear enough to see hard and soft corals, octopuses, eels, and many tropical fish. Chileno Reef (10–80 feet) is a protected finger reef 1 km (½ mile) from Chileno Bay, with many invertebrates, including starfish, flower urchins, and hydroids. The Blowhole (60–100 feet) is known for diverse terrain—massive boulders, rugged tunnels, shallow caverns, and deep rock cuts—which house manta rays, sea turtles, and large schools of amberjacks and grouper. 

Although Los Cabos is often busiest starting in mid-October for the sportfishing season, the high season doesn't technically begin until mid-December, running through the end of Easter week. Spring break, which can stagger over several weeks in March and April, is also a particularly crowded and raucous time. Downtown Cabo gets very busy, especially on weekends, throughout the year. Whale-watching season (December–April) coincides with high season. 

Pacific hurricanes do occur however, most summer tropical storms pass through quickly, even during the so-called short "rainy" season, from July through October.
