If you haven’t visited Cabo, I want to tell you just a bit about it. First of all, there are really two different Cabos at the tip of Baja, that both fall under the name Los Cabos. One is San Jose del Cabo and the other Cabo San Lucas. San Jose del Cabo is closer to the airport and it mostly a small town with homes, schools, and small businesses for the locals. There is also a row of nice hotels along the ocean there. It is a bit quieter and you can swim in the ocean. Cabo San Lucas is more touristy, with lots of shopping, the harbor, and lots of restaurants. Both areas are attractive for different reasons.
Here is a map of the area. You will find Los Cabos at the southern tip.
In the San Jose del Cabo area, there are some interesting things to see. Our favorite spot there is the Puerto Los Cabos. It is a quiet, pretty marina with lots of big boats. You can take your kids or grandkids there to swim with the Dolphins in a sectioned-off area of the inlet. We like to go there and relax and look at the boats while drinking some great drinks and fabulous fish tacos at a little restaurant called the Container. The main part of the building is actually a storage container, and the large porch area serves as the bar and restaurant.
Here are some photos of the area:
Since we came straight from the airport, you can see I am still wearing my “traveling” outfit. Super comfy French terry crops with a tee and my pretty floral topper. And my Kork-Ease slides are perfect for slipping on and off to go through security at the airport!
The pictures above and below are from the deck at the Container. Like I say, a beautiful, quiet spot with great food. I had an amazing Hibiscus Mojito! Yum!
These are some more views of Puerto Los Cabos–it is a mix of the old and the new and a lovely place to see.
Between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas is the Los Cabos Corridor. It is mostly some stretches of absolutely gorgeous beaches and LOTS of large hotel complexes. It is roughly 30 minutes between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Along the way, there is a large Wal Mart and a Costco where you can stop to pick up supplies. Very handy!
Since our timeshare is in Cabo San Lucas–the party town!–I will show you some of the sights at our hotel and for Cabo San Lucas in the next few days.
Thanks for stopping by my post! I hope you enjoyed the first post from Los Cabos, Mexico, and that you will check back in tomorrow.
