Guests have a difficult time tearing themselves away from the pampering and relaxation of Las Ventanas, but when they do they discover that Los Cabos offers an extraordinary wealth of rewarding activities and fun excursions. It’s a sea and sand wonderland with world-class sport fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, yachting, sea kayaking, surfing and windsurfing. The array of spectacular golf courses by top designers includes Robert Trent Jones II ‘s Cabo Real next to Las Ventanas.
Las Ventanas is located just 15 minutes from the quaint Colonial town of San Jose del Cabo – with its cobbled streets, excellent restaurants and shops with silver jewelry and other artisanry – and vibrant Cabo San Lucas, the ultimate tourist Mecca teeming with restaurants, cafes, boutiques and famous nightlife. With 350 days of sunshine per year, the weather is almost always perfect for enjoying whale watching, all-terrain-vehicle safaris, horseback riding, swimming with dolphins and zip line experiences.
The Concierge at Las Ventanas would be delighted to provide more information and make reservations.
The Tourist Corridor: Los Cabos "The Capes" is the general name given to the area but it refers more specifically to the tourist corridor, the 20-mile-long area of white-sand beaches, hotels and resorts between San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas.
Sport fishing: Los Cabos is one of the world's great sport fishing destinations. The varieties of fish, in an area so compact and accessible, is unequaled elsewhere. It is particularly famous for its concentration of swordfish and sailfish, and is known as "The Marlin Capital of the World." In addition to big trophy fish, you can catch everything from mahi mahi and tuna to roosterfish, halibut, wahoo and corvina.
Snorkeling & Scuba Diving: The Sea of Cortez is a colorful underwater world of beauty and wonder with living coral reefs, sand falls, ocean canyons and old shipwrecks to explore. Tropical fish, hammerhead sharks, moray eels and turtles abound.
Sailing & Sea Kayaking: Los Cabos is a recreational sailor's dream with endless undeveloped coastline, small islands and open waters to explore. It is also a world-class sea-kayaking destination with coves, inlets, water caves and beaches that are only accessible by kayak.
Surfing: Surfing is excellent on the Pacific without the crowds typical of the surfing spots in Northern Baja.
Golf: Los Cabos has evolved into one of Mexico's leading golf destinations with many spectacular courses, all created by the biggest names in golf course design: Palmilla, and Cabo del Sol were all designed by Jack Nicklaus; Cabo San Lucas Country Club by Roy & Pete Dye; and Cabo Real by Robert Trent Jones II.
Local Towns & Villages: Several towns and villages, easily reached on day trips, offer history, shopping and more. Todo Santos, originally a Jesuit mission and plantation, today is known for its fishing industry, fruit orchards and handmade crafts; it is a beautiful 50-mile drive up the Pacific coast from Cabo San Lucas through a desert landscape with a backdrop of jagged mountains. Miraflores, about 35 miles from San Jose del Cabo, is another quaint Baja village with the area's only zoo. About 124 miles north of San Jose is the main town and capital of Southern Baja , La Paz . Originally a pirates' haven, Italian missionaries built a church here more than 500 years ago and today it offers history, shopping, restaurants and more.
Shopping: A colorful and diverse selection of handmade artisanry is sold in shops including silver jewelry, hand-painted vases, wrought-iron candleholders, ceramic figures and masks, flowing Mexican dresses, and carved wood objects.
Night Life: Los Cabos is alive with food, music and dancing. Cabo San Lucas at night has been called Cabo San "Loco" with its many bars, clubs, discos and live music. San Jose del Cabo is known for its fine restaurants and nightclubs with live dance bands and other entertainment.
