LOS CABOS

MEXICO

At the end of the Peninsula of Baja California, where the land ends, the sky begins and the centenarian relentlessness of the waves has sculpted a monumental arch of rock, there is a paradise of warm waters and white sand, an oasis in the desert stained by the tropical greenness on the riverbanks and the shores of the coastal lagoons, with a handful of coastal towns of provincial airs or with glimpses of great city.

Los Cabos is a formidable geographic space for being the encountering point between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea Of Cortes. Here the waters transform, get filled with life and turn blue, clear and intense; they butter up the white sands of the last beaches on the peninsula, the last beaches on this part of the planet, with their humid warmth.

The waters of Los Cabos are the perfect setting for the mating display of the whales, because these giant cetaceous come to this remnant of Mexican sea every year to mate and give birth, offering a unique and exciting natural spectacle for eager human eyes.

Sea and fun, sea and adventure and sea and relaxation make for the pleasant essence of San Jose del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas, Santiago, La Ribera and Miraflores, the rosary of towns and cities, so similar yet so different and beautiful, that integrate the Municipality of Los Cabos in the State of Baja California Sur, which is located at 4340 kilometres from Mexico City, the capital of the country.

Places of exultant beauty, gastronomy of unforgettable taste and idyllic beaches inviting to relax, are features common to all the towns in the municipality, which has San Jose del Cabo, the peaceful capital of colonial features, and Cabo San Lucas, modern, radiant and more prone to the festive insomnia of the nightclubs, as its main cities.

    Useful Information Los Cabos
    History tells us that the first inhabitants of San Jose del Cabo were the Peric˙es, the slimmest, strongest and most athletic of the 3 pre Hispanic peoples that developed on the peninsula; history also reveals that every man had two or three women, for women's population was larger than that of men. They looked after their daily bread whilst the men rested.

    The first Spanish ships arrived in 1535, but it was not until 1730 that the Jesuits founded the mission of San Jose del Cabo, with the objective of evangelising the locals and teaching them agricultural techniques. The religious' task proved successful until they tried to induce the natives towards monogamy.

    The idea of having just one woman, and moreover, to be faithful to her, did not fit into the scheme of the Peric˙es. The attempt of the pious "men of God" was all the natives needed to have their patience ran over, so they started a bloody rebellion in 1734 armed with the sickles they have gotten to farm their lands.

    One of the victims of this rebellion was the founder of the mission, father Tamaral, who was tortured, murdered and beheaded. The violent action determined the withdrawal of the Jesuits who, steadfast on their faith and civilising purposes, would return to San Jose a year later.

    That is how the history of the Municipality of Los Cabos and of its capital San Jose began to be written. But that is part of the past, nowadays there are no uprisings, save for the amusing night parties that spark at bars and discotheques, especially at those in Cabo San Lucas, where the travelling night can extend up until dawn.

    After a day at the beach, of watching whales, of catching marlins, or of exploring the depths of the sea, relax and indulge your artistic fibre at the handicrafts stores, which exhibit beautiful black coral jewels designed with care to jut out the charms of both men and women.

    Handicrafts stores in San Jose are located on the surroundings of the main plaza, whilst they are in the so-called Plaza Bonita in Cabo San Lucas, where the Marina Boulevard begins, and where you will be able to purchase typical objects from all over Mexico.

    It is not hard to get to this point of confluence between the Pacific and the Sea of Cortes. Just 152 kilometres separate it from La Paz, the capital of the State of Baja California Sur, to which it is linked by the trans-peninsular highway. You can also fly in to the international airport, located 12 kilometres away from San Jose, or come ashore at the luxurious marina of Cabo San Lucas.

    Journeys to where the land ends, to enjoy the sea, to approach nature and to rouse your adrenaline. Do not wait any longer, pack your bags and set off to Los Cabos.
