10 Reasons Why Cabo Is the Perfect Winter Getaway

The doldrums of winter—icy roads, whipping winds, freezing temperatures—can send even the most optimistic among us into a dreary mood. Daydreaming of sunny beaches, golf greenways, and swim-up bars may provide a short respite from the bleakest months, but why not turn that fantasy into a reality at East Cape Resorts Cabo?

Over the last decade, Mexico’s famed Baja peninsula has become a warm-weather playground for those seeking a luxury retreat. East Cape Resorts Cabo are brimming with water-focused activities, outdoor restaurants, horseback riding, and world-renowned golf.

If you’re determined to get away from heavy winter gear, slush-covered pant cuffs, and delayed commutes, it won’t take much to convince you to hop on a plane. For travelers who have become accustomed to a life of luxury, few destinations rival the escape from winter provided by East Cape Resorts Cabo. Here are just a handful of reasons to consider the sun-drenched destination:

  1. Convenient accessibility

Many of the major airlines, including American, Southwest, United, Spirit, and JetBlue offering direct flights to Los Cabos International Airport, travelers to East Cape Resorts Cabo can be transported to a sunny locale in no time. Then it’s just a short drive (about 45 minutes) on paved highways to reach resort towns.

Taxi services, resort shuttles, major rental car agencies, and private driver services are all available to get you to your East Cape Resorts Cabo destination.

  1. World-renowned golf

Golf courses dot the entire stretch of Baja. It’s a destination for more than 8 million golfers annually. With such recognizable course designers—Tiger Woods, Greg Norman, Jack Nicklaus, and Robert Trent Jones Jr.—just setting foot on the properties makes for a good story.

It’s worth noting not all the courses are open to the public, so choose your East Cape Resorts Cabo carefully. Diamante offers two courses, including El Cardonal Course, and guests or residents at Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos can play the area’s newest 18-hole championship course that’s on-site.

  1. Spa services

When winter feels dark and dreary, self-care becomes the ultimate prescription. Most of the luxury East Cape Resorts Cabo can indulge you on-site with facials, massages, mani-pedis, and soaks or steams.

Opt for a romantic retreat with side-by-side treatments and massages at the spa at Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, for example.

  1. Water sports

Scuba diving, snorkeling, and surfing are just a handful of the water activities you’ll enjoy at East Cape Resorts Cabo. Do your research to ensure your resort can fulfill your expectations without making you jump through hoops with private companies. The best resorts will maximize your time in the water having fun; not tracking down equipment on your own or filling out piles of forms.

  1. Land-based exploration

Some travelers to East Cape Resorts Cabo prefer land over water, and they’re never disappointed with this vacationland. Explore the area on horseback, ATV, or dune buggy or take a tour of the mountains, orchards or wildlife sanctuary.

  1. Fishing

Baja tourism started with a fishing boom and the draw is still strong for those who love the pastime. Most East Cape Resorts Cabo offer fishing charters to help you find the sweet spot in the Sea of Cortez. But with nearly 900 species of fish, you probably won’t have much difficulty.

If you’d rather take your own boat out for a private excursion, the resort community of Costa Palmas boasts its own marina. Whether you’re mooring a small boat or a superyacht, your craft will be easily accessible from the property.

As for the fish, you’ll likely find marlin, sailfish, snapper, yellowfin tuna, wahoo, roosterfish, and grouper.

  1. Near-perfect weather

First-time visitors to East Cape Resorts Cabo can relish in the fact that the sun-soaked region rarely gets rain. Nestled between the warm waters of the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez, the ecosystem of the Baja Peninsula provides a continuous level of comfort that’s rarely too hot or cold. Even in winter, when ocean temperature drops from the high-80s to mid-70s, water-sport enthusiasts can enjoy activities without a wetsuit.

  1. Luxury shopping

Beyond the standard tourist souvenirs like straw hats and knick-knacks are the high-end items that make for conversation starters. Posh boutiques, traditional plazas, and air-conditioned malls cater to affluent shoppers with exquisite taste.

From well-known fashion designers to locally made leather goods and hand-carved furniture and decor, you’re sure to take home an original piece to commemorate your visit. You can pick up Mexican chocolate, cigars, and tequila at shops and boutiques or at the duty-free airport shops.

  1. Arts and culture

Handmade jewelry, artisan-crafted pottery, and unique art will remind you of your stay at East Cape Resorts Cabo. Be sure to browse the Gallery District in San Jose del Cabo, where the galleries display and sell original pieces and prints by local, national, and international artists.

Steep yourself in the rich history of the region highlighted in the architecture, museums, churches and older villages. Guided tours can help provide information without skimping on the cultural immersion of the experience.

  1. Fine dining

Although there’s something to be said about street tacos and local eateries that locals enjoy, it’s essential that you not leave East Cape Resorts Cabo without indulging in some of the world’s best fine dining while you’re there.

With the East Cape’s focus on luxury, restaurants are able to recruit some of the best chefs in the world. Be sure to add Estiatorio Milos at Four Seasons Resort at Costa Palmas to your itinerary in order to sample the best that chef Costas Spiliadis has to offer. When you combine talent with fresh seafood and climate for organic farms and orchards, and you’ve got a perfect recipe.

Hybrid cuisines are common in the region, with everything from Mexican and Asian to Mediterranean and Italian blended seamlessly. You can’t pass up a margarita (or two) when you’re in the country known for the world’s best tequila!
