Cabo Villas - Villas in San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are two of the major towns that are found in the area known as Los Cabos. Los Cabos refers to the municipality located at the tip of Baja California, in the Mexican state called Baja California Sur.
The governmental headquarters of the municipality are located in San Jose del Cabo, which is also where most visitors arrive, at Los Cabos International Airport. The town of San Jose del Cabo lies about 20 miles east of the more famous Cabo San Lucas. The stretch of coast in between these two towns is known as the Resort Corridor.
Exotic Estates has villas in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, as well as along the Resort Corridor, which runs between them.
San Jose del Cabo
The town of San Jose del Cabo has a historic center, with colonial-era homes and buildings, including a church from 1700. It has avoided uncontrolled growth and tried to keep its historic small-town charm, opting for upscale galleries and shops rather than the sprawling malls found in some Mexican resort towns.
San Jose del Cabo is not as large as Cabo San Lucas, but it is growing and becoming more popular as a destination. If you are looking for a more mellow and quiet historic Mexican town to enjoy your holiday, renting an Exotic Estates San Jose del Cabo villa may be a better option for you than renting in its more touristy and commercial neighbor - Cabo San Lucas.
The Resort Corridor – Los Cabos
The town of San Jose del Cabo is joined with its popular neighbor to the southwest, Cabo San Lucas, via a well-maintained highway. Peppered along this 20 mile stretch are several high-quality resort areas boasting fabulous luxury vacation villas.
One of these areas is the Del Mar Development, located just to the south of San Jose del Cabo. Exotic Estates vacation villas in Del Mar are ideal for those who want to be close to towns, but not in them. The homes are all well-appointed and offer modern and high-end conveniences, such as in-home technologies, private pools and Jacuzzis, and outdoor grilling and fire-pits.
The added benefit of these homes, is that, while they offer private vacation-villa living, guests have access to world-class resorts, including the Palmilla Resort, which offers golfing, spas and restaurants. The concept is similar to some of the private villas located in the resort areas on the Big Island of Hawaii, which come with the option of resort privileges and the benefit of gated neighborhoods.
Of course the beaches along this stretch are stunning and often less-crowded than those around the main towns. If you are looking for a quieter, resort-like experience, renting a villa along the Resort Corridor can be a great option.
The town of Cabo San Lucas really took off as a destination starting in the 1970's and 80's. Then Sammy Hagar come to town, opened a bar and named a Tequila after Cabo, and things really got nuts. But Cabo San Lucas is in an enviable position, right on the tip of the Baja Peninsula, and its draw is understandable. From a few hotels clustered near “The Arches,” the famous stone arch and cliffs that jut out over the Sea at Land's End, Cabo has grown up as a world-class beach destination.
Other Mexican towns have a central piazza, but not Cabo, which has the marina as its center. The area is famed for marlin and game fishing and you can still enjoy some of the freshest seafood here.
Cabo offers incredible resorts and fabulous vacation villas. The landscape is very dramatic, and many Exotic Estates Cabo villas are built into the rugged hillsides, offering staggering views of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific.
Beside great beaches, amazing seafood and beautiful vacation homes, Cabo is definitely the social and commercial hub for Los Cabos. Whether you want to party or enjoy a romantic dinner, or have a spa day, you’ll find plenty of options in Cabo San Lucas.
