From the minute you land at San Jose del Cabo International Airport, you’ll know you’re in for a special experience. Within steps of the Arrivals Hall, Los Cabos welcomes you with a phalanx of lively, open-air bars. Stopping for an ice-cold cerveza or margarita before you head to your hotel is practically mandatory. In route to your hotel, you’ll quickly get a feel for what makes this area so special. The red sandstone mountains. The cactus-laden desert crisscrossed by dry arroyos. And ultimately, the sparkling sea.
As late as the 1970s, Los Cabos was little more than a collection of quaint fishing villages. Today, it’s an international hot spot dotted with luxurious oceanfront hotels, bustling restaurants and bars, natural and cultural attractions galore, and golf courses that make superb use of their stunning settings. Spend a day in Cabo and you’ll understand immediately why the area is regarded as one of Mexico’s national treasures; spend a week there and you may never want to leave. The golf in Los Cabos is a lot like what you’ll find in the American southwest. It’s target golf on ribbons of emerald green turf, only with stunning ocean views. You’ll enjoy dramatic views of the sea from every course.
In addition to golf, Los Cabos offers a myriad of other ways to have fun in the sun. You can go sportfishing for marlin, tuna, and other trophy catches just minutes from shore. Boating excursions to see The Arch or go whale-watching are popular, too—as are the diving and snorkeling in the clear, blue waters.
At the moment, Los Cabos is one of the few international golf destinations that Americans can visit. It’s easy to get there via many major airlines, and the hotels and other tourism providers have taken every precaution to help ensure a safe visit. In fact, many of the destinations hotels and resorts are participating in a new health security protocol, “Sharecare Verified” by Forbes Travel Guide, that’s supported by leading travel agency brands such as Distincte Travel Group.
Sean Winton, Founder and President of Distincte Travel Group a concierge golf travel experience – https://www.distincte.com thinks Cabo will be one of the hottest golf travel destinations for years to come. “Golf pilgrimages to the famed links courses of Scotland and Ireland are off the table,” Winton said, “at least until mid-season 2022 or early 2023. Simply put, there’s just very little available inventory. Golfers will need a place to go—a destination that’s not only open but matches the high standards desired for a proper golf experience. We’re advising clients to swap out whisky for tequila, and to go where the desert meets the mighty Pacific – Los Cabos. People who haven’t traveled there will be astounded at how good it is. For those who have visited before, it’s the perfect time to go back.”
