Cabo San Lucas sits right on the edge of the long Baja California Peninsula, known as Land's End. Known as Cabo by the locals, Los Cabos refers to two picturesque towns, San Jose del Cabo twenty miles to the northeast and Cabo San Lucas. It is punctuated by "El Arco", the famous, natural landmark arch at the southernmost tip, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. The jagged formations of the Sierra La Laguna surround it in protective reverence as the much sought “Lovers Beach” looks on nearby.
Blessed with a perfect climate thanks to an average, year-round temperature of 78 degrees, Los Cabos has become renowned for its championship golf courses, spectacular sportfishing, diving, and full-service marina showcasing numerous epicurean delights and legendary nightlife.
Between the two towns lies the Corridor, complete with fantastic views rimmed by azure waters and plenty to discover inland. For years, Cabo San Lucas was a remote playground for private yacht owners. Sports fishermen from around the world also flocked to the nearby "Marlin Alley," which is still recognized today as the undisputed billfish capital of the world.
San Jose Del Cabo
The quaint and tranquil village of San Jose del Cabo is to the east of Cabo San Lucas, and is the area’s County Seat of Administration. Its magnificent tree lined streets wind through local cafés, shops and small restaurants, surrounding a traditional central plaza. Feel free to mingle with the locals and enjoy the local feel and flavor of distinctive Mexican culture.
Connecting Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, the Corridor provides easy access to both towns and is the home to many beautiful beaches and pristine coves ready for exploration. The Corridor is where the first-class hotels come together to form a village of exclusive and luxurious properties. And now, the RIU Palace Cabo San Lucas is the newest and the most luxurious resort, shining like a jewel along the area’s most coveted coastline property.
