City Guide


East Cape
Los Cabos, México

East of San José del Cabo, you’ll find a magical stretch of idyllic beaches along the Sea of Cortez. Close enough to San José and Cabo San Lucas for day trips, the East Cape is a decidedly different Los Cabos retreat. Long revered by sport fishermen, the area is an authentic taste of old Baja where local fishermen head out in their panga boats each morning. The pace is slower and the atmosphere one of seclusion and peace. For those looking to get away from the bustling scene of Cabo San Lucas and enjoy outstanding natural beauty, the East Cape is a serene retreat.

The East Cape’s biggest draw is the outstanding explosion of marine life found along its shores. Here you’ll find Cabo Pulmo, a National Marine Park featuring one of only three living coral reef systems in North America. Popular with divers, snorkelers and kayakers, Cabo Pulmo teems with tropical fish species among the spectacular corals. In the area, divers can also enjoy the sights of a diverse population of tropical fish, rays, whales, turtles, eels, lobster, playful sea lions and more. Fishermen flock to these legendary grounds for the profusion of prize bill fish, roosterfish, dorado, tuna and sea bass.

Along the East Cape, you’ll find a number of truly outstanding beachfront villas with splendid Sea of Cortez views stretching out before you. You won’t find the abundance of dining options and nightlife that you’ll find in other areas of Los Cabos. However, you will find simple local restaurants and an uncrowded sanctuary of tranquility and unrivaled beauty.
