"The Corridor" of Mexico
Let's first start with a geographic lesson. So many people use Los Cabos in a general sense to identify the area or town known as Cabo San Lucas. When in reality there are 3 distinct areas that make up the tip of the Baja Peninsula; San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos and Cabo San Lucas. When you fly into the area...you will fly into San Jose del Cabo which is a wonderful, quiet little fishing village on the banks of the Sea of Cortez. From there, most vacationers will travel along a gorgeous stretch of highway that will take them to the town of Cabo San Lucas. The area connecting the two towns is called Los Cabos or "The Corridor."
We based our stay out of the beautiful Secrets Marquis Los Cabos Resort and Spa. The resort is surrounded by the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range on one side and the azure blue Sea of Cortez on the other. The contrast of the cactus-covered mountains with the sounds of the sea are striking which to me makes this area very special.
We had the privilege of visiting 12 resorts during this visit and I want to simply recap 3 of them to show you the range of accommodation possibilities that this area has to offer.
Cabo Adventures. You can try your hand at sword fishing from one of the many talented guides that base themselves out of the scenic Cabo San Lucas marina. You want championship golf courses? Cabo has those too.
Are you getting the picture? I hope so because this part of Mexico deserves your consideration the next time you are planning a vacation. Like I said at the beginning...I love this part of Mexico. You can see pictures of the resorts I mentioned as well as the other wonderful resorts we visited during this trip by clicking on this link to my page on Facebook.
Please let me know if you have any questions related to this review or my trip to Cabo. Have you been before? How would you describe the area to someone who has never been?
