It’s been said that you can never take in the whole Baja experience in a lifetime, and rightfully so, as the region is bursting with fun facts and an interesting history. Meaning “The Capes” in Spanish, Los Cabos is lined with secluded coves, jutting points and is bolstered by wonder from all sides. El Arco, or “The Arch,” is a prominently unique structure that sits as the iconic natural landmark at “Land’s End”, where the Sea of Cortez meets the currents of the Pacific Ocean in a beautiful mixture of turquoise waters amidst a backdrop of stunning granite mountains. Celebrities visit the stretch for its luxurious hideaways and lavish resorts. The rich and famous have been visiting Los Cabos since it was a small fishing village, attracting even renowned author Ernest Hemingway.
Sportfishing is legendary here, where the most expensive and most gratuitous payout of any fishing contest in the world takes place – the Bisbee’s Black and Blue – as anglers from around the world compete to catch the largest blue and striped marlin, yellowfin tuna, and dorado. Jackpots can exceed $4 million. Other interesting things to know about the area include that it was one of the favorite places that Jacques Cousteau dove to document and study marine life in his television series. And rockers, listen up – Legendary rock star Sammy Hagar chose this place to open his bar – Cabo Wabo, which coincidentally is the name of his famous Baja tequila offered right at the bar.
