East Cape

East Cape Los Cabos Mexico Travel InformationJust east of San José del Cabo you’ll find long expanses of tranquil beaches. Located close enough to San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas for a day trip, the East Cape offers an timeless taste of old Baja. Local fishermen head out in their traditional panga boats each morning to make their living from the rich waters of the Sea of Cortez.

Head to Cabo Pulmo, a National Marine Park boasting one of few living coral reef systems found in North America. A favorite of scuba divers, snorkelers and kayakers, visitors here can experience the vibrant array of tropical fish, rays, migrating whales, sea turtles, playful sea lions and more. Fans of fishing flock to these legendary grounds for the profusion of prize billfish, roosterfish, dorado, tuna and sea bass.

The pace is laid back and the atmosphere is one of seclusion and peace. For those looking to get away from the bustling scene of Cabo San Lucas and enjoy unparalleled natural beauty, the East Cape is a rare treat.

Along the East Cape, you’ll find a handful of beachfront villas with marvelous Sea of Cortez views. While you won’t find the profusion of dining options and nightlife that are found in other areas of Los Cabos, you will discover charming local eateries and a peaceful ambiance.
