The history of Los Cabos is as rich as the landscape that defines the region. One
of the oldest parts of the southern Baja Peninsula, Los Cabos translates into "The
Capes," and brings a lasting history to this unequaled corner of the world.
With nearly 360 days of sunshine each year and countless activities from which to
choose, Los Cabos will captivate you with its unsurpassed natural beauty. Whether
you prefer to tee off at a world-class golf course or head out at sunrise hoping
to catch a prized marlin, Los Cabos has it all. Every day is the start of a new
adventure. You can indulge with a day at the spa and request a pampering treatment
that uses a blend of local Baja plants.
Or you can go surfing, kayaking, snorkeling or diving at one of the many tempting
locations you'll find throughout this fun-in-the-sun paradise. Get closer to nature,
on an ATV ride through the mountainous terrain while learning about the flora and
fauna that abounds, hop into a Hummer H2 for an amazing ride, or zoom along in a
Chenowith racer for a unique adventure. No matter which activity you decide to embark
on, you're sure to enjoy your stay — and you'll want to come back again and again
