5 Things Yachters Love About Living on the Water

Yacht life offers a level of excitement unlike any other. Dock your yacht at the Marina Village at Costa Palmas and discover everything Cabo has to offer.

Variety is the spice of life. Why not shake up your scenery and set sail on a sea of endless adventures?

Whether you’re planning your next long weekend or an extended escape on the East Cape, here are five things yachters love most about living in a (floating) lap of luxury.

  1. 1. Relaxing in a laid-back environment

    One of the biggest attractions of yacht life is the ability to unplug from the stresses of everyday life. Take a “time out” from the daily grind on your yacht, where your own personal sanctuary on the sea awaits.

    Spend your days swimming, sunbathing, reading, or catching up on some much-needed rest–for mind, body, and soul.

    Simply step outside your door for an unobstructed oceanfront view. Connect with nature by listening to the rolling waves, spotting sea birds and dolphins, and watching the sun rise and sink down into the horizon.

    Tranquility is good for the soul–and there’s no better place than picturesque Cabo to find it.

  2. 2. Meeting new people and exploring new places on a whim

    Yacht life means never having to spend a day in the same spot if you don’t want to, so take advantage of all Cabo has to offer.

    Plan a day trip to one of the many nearby towns to immerse yourself in the rich culture.

    • San José del Cabo

      This idyllic colonial city is renowned for its art scene. Stroll down the cobblestone streets and pop into one of several galleries to admire exhibits from an array of local artists.
      Stop for a bite or glass of wine at a charming cafe before heading to San José Missionary Church, a historic spot situated in the center of the town.
      Nearby San José Estuary is also a popular destination for spotting hummingbirds, herons, and ibis.

    • Cabo Pulmo

      Cabo Pulmo is much more than just another beautiful beach town.
      Famed oceanographer Jacques Cousteau called it “The Aquarium of the World” due to the area’s menagerie of colorful fish, coral reefs, and other marine life.
      During a snorkeling or scuba diving excursion in Cabo Pulmo, you’re likely to spot magnificent creatures like sea lions, whale sharks, and manta rays.

    • Miraflores

      If you want to venture into the rugged mountains, Miraflores is home to many ranches and historic architecture to explore for a change of pace.
      Shop for handmade leather goods, visit a saddlery, and sample local cuisine at one of Miraflores’ restaurants, known for delectable cuts of meat.

  3. 3. World-class amenities and personalized service

    A major advantage to staying on a yacht versus a hotel is that extra-customized feel, and everything you could possibly want or need is at your fingertips.

    The mission of your top-notch, trained crew is to make your getaway as stress-free and opulent as possible as if you’re staying in a floating five-star hotel.

    Prior to boarding, your crew will become well-acquainted with your favorite foods, drinks and activities by studying your preference sheet.

    From whipping up gourmet meals to special requests, themed dinner parties, beach picnics, or onshore excursions, your crew aims to exceed your expectations and make your dream vacation a reality.

  4. 4. Freedom to design your own itinerary

    On your luxury watercraft, you can plan a getaway that’s as action-packed or as low-key as you wish–it’s downtime on your own terms.

    Drop anchor and soak up your solitude in the middle of the ocean, relax on the beach, or head inland to make more memories.

    • Marina Village

      Take your holiday out on dry land at the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, where you can dock your yacht at the resort’s premier port of call, Marina Village.
      Mingle with locals and fellow travelers alike while shopping and dining in style. Local boutiques and eateries offer both casual and fine dining atmospheres.
      An outdoor lounge, nightclub, and gathering spaces make the perfect backdrop to your getaway.

    • Off-Roading

      One of the most unique features of the Cabo region is the widely-varied terrain.
      Everything from beaches, mountains, and waterfalls to dense forests and stretches of desert can be found in this ever changing landscape.
      Take a buggy, ATV, or UTV tour through the area’s widely-varied terrain. Hike to the waterfalls, bike scenic trails, or even spend the night camping.
      Wherever your “off the beaten path” plans take you, be sure to have your yacht crew secure a local tour guide to ensure you’re safe throughout the journey.

    • Wild Canyon Adventures

      Amp up the adrenaline before heading back aboard your floating palace at Wild Canyon Adventures.
      This spot is centrally-located between San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, at the top of the Tule Canyon.
      Choose from a menu of activities like zip-lining, bungee jumping, or going on a camel safari.
      The stunning canyon views will paint a picture-perfect ending to your day.

  5. 5. Taking advantage of aquatic activities

    Yet another fabulous benefit of living on a luxury vessel is partaking in all the water has to offer. On a yacht, you’re literally adrift in potential adventures.

    • Fishing

      In addition to swimming and beach-hopping, Cabo is home to world famous fishing waters.
      The sparkling Sea of Cortez is brimming with yellowfin tuna, striped, blue, and black marlin, roosterfish, sea bass, grouper, and more.
      The area also hosts numerous fishing rodeos that come with sizable cash prizes.
      Fish from the comfort of your yacht or charter a fishing boat, complete with a local expert, and hit the “hot spots” for a fresh catch.

    • Windsports

      The strong El Norte winds make Cabo an amazing place to try your hand at windsports like windsurfing, kitesurfing, and kiteboarding.
      The winter season, mid-November through mid-March, is the optimal time for these high-flying activities.
      Have your yacht crew schedule a private lesson and try your hand at something new.

    • Water skiing, jet skiing, and surfing

      Yachters also love the ease with which they can take their watercraft’s many “toys” for a spin on the ocean waves.
      The waters of the East Cape are particularly popular for sightings like shipwrecks. So you’ll find vibrant coral reefs, and plenty of marine life in its natural habitat.

Venture out solo, with an experienced crew member or instructor, or alongside friends and family to enjoy some high octane energy wherever your yacht drops anchor.
