Let’s take a look at the top five reasons luxury yacht owners can’t stay away from this sprawling seaside spot, a mecca for mariners accustomed to the best the Baja lifestyle has to offer.
1) Soak up the sights and sounds at the majestic Marina Village
Whether you’re the type of traveler who prefers sitting under the stars, sipping a cocktail and catching up with friends, or would rather hop onto your yacht to set sail on a whim, East Cape’s Marina Village offers everything you seek.
As a glamorous port of call, Marina Village hosts world-class yachts, fishing boats, and sailboats alike. World-class dining, high-end boutique shopping, and exciting nightlife waiting for you upon arrival.
Mozza Baja patrons congregate around the wood-fired pizza oven, outdoor bar tops, and indoor dining room to suit their mood–and satisfy their appetites with delicious culinary creations. Casena offers coffee, culture, and the first retail experience at Marina Village.
Browse a collection of designer gifts and apparel, or peruse local craftsmanship for rare finds you’d be hard-pressed to find elsewhere.
Invigorate the senses with a latte made from Mexico’s best roasted beans, snack on freshly-baked bread, and shop for mouth-watering goods guaranteed to stock your pantry with loads of local flavor.
Go for an evening stroll and watch as sleek, streamlined yachts glide effortlessly across the sea, enjoy the sounds of live local music, or dance the night away in the nightclub.
It’s your vacation, your way.
2) Cruise on over to Costa Palmas Beach & Yacht Club
Costa Palmas homeowners treasure being members of the Beach & Yacht Club for more than just access to premier amenities–the community itself provides an inclusive, “family” feel for all who enter.
The Costa Palmas Beach & Yacht Club, which boasts a state-of-the-art fitness center, movie theater, pool, indoor and outdoor dining, kids’ activities, and more, is as inviting as it is decadent, as well as the perfect place to bond with friends old and new.
Wherever your pursuits take you–gathered around the fire pit with friends and family, making memories with your children on the stretches of swimmable beach, or listening to the laughter of your loved ones making memories as you watch a bevy of beautiful boats passing by, you’re bound to feel at home in this peaceful, private oasis.
3) Board your boat for a delightful day on the water
Climb aboard your yacht or charter a vessel from Marina Village and venture out to seize the sea. Take charge of the daily itinerary and be the master of your own destiny, or, if you’d rather sit back and relax as you ride the waves, a seasoned sea captain at the helm ensures a top-tier, worry-free experience. The ocean offers countless options for embarking on an adventure where there’s never a dull moment.
Snag a fresh catch–or a dozen–with the guidance of a local fishing expert. Sea bass, grouper, yellowfin tuna, striped marlin, and more await in the waters below.
Drop anchor at Cabo Pulmo National Park, a living aquarium and home to one of the world’s three thriving coral reefs. Here, you can get up-close-and-personal with wildlife you’ve only seen in pictures.
Craving more sea creature sightings? Sail on over to Espiritu Santo Island, where you can catch a glimpse of the elusive humpback whale. Another must-see site on the sea is El Arco, a natural limestone formation that’s only accessible by water. Admire the beauty of the structure and stop by nearby Lover’s Beach for some lounging.
When the day is done and you’re ready to take your adventures back on dry land, pull up to the dock and take your pick of nighttime activities to wind down in style.
4) Experience the culture of nearby coastal cities and towns
Let’s face it–yachties don’t like to stay put for too long–and with good reason! With a convenient central location, there are a number of towns to traverse that are well within reach in and around East Cape. Take a crash course in regional history by visiting an array of local landmarks, delight your taste buds by sampling fantasting fare, and find unique, one-of-a-kind treasures crafted by local artisans.
Make a day–or more–out of it and take advantage of the nearby towns that are overflowing with cultural adventures to be had. Check out the cool desert town of Santiago, which sits just outside of an impressive, 25-foot waterfall–Cascada Sol de Mayo Waterfall. Visit the Cabo San Lucas Museum in downtown Cabo, easily spotted in the town square thanks to the massive whale skeleton that sits out front. Only 20 miles away, San José del Cabo is the oldest Spanish colonial town in the area, with plenty of gorgeous architecture to admire.
5) Dive into the world of adrenaline-pumping water and windsports
If you’re an active, sports-minded soul, you’ve come to the right place. East Cape makes the picture-perfect backdrop for snorkeling, swimming, waterskiing, surfing, paddleboarding, and even windsports like kitesurfing, kiteboarding, and windsurfing. World-class seasonal weather conditions make East Cape the ideal spot for water and windsport activities, with the peak “wind season” taking place from November-March.
