The Paradisus Los Cabos Resort is delightfully situated between the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, giving you the opportunity to enjoy what both towns have to offer.
Cabo San Lucas is a city located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula which has not only beautiful desert landscapes & beaches, it is also known worldwide for being one of the most popular vacation destinations, the Marlin Capital and home of The Arch, also called “Land’s End”, where the Sea of Cortez & the Pacific Ocean meet.
It is hard to believe, that at the beginning Cabo San Lucas was nothing more than a fishing village with a few settlers from colonization time. Cabo San Lucas started developing as it is rich in marine life and isolated, which made it the favorite destination of fishermen looking for the largest fish & celebrities trying to stay away from the limelight. Nowadays, Cabo San Lucas has some of the most luxurious resorts and the biggest fishing tournament in the world. It is popular with thousands of people from all over the world who can enjoy the nightlife, deep-sea fishing and a wide variety of activities.
An ancient culture of agile runners and tireless walkers called the Pericues had lived in the Los Cabos region long before tourism started. They were gatherers, fishermen and hunters who lived under palm trees, surrounded by birds in the San Jose del Cabo estuary. In early 1530s, the first expeditions to explore this area were carried out by Hernan Cortés. Therefore, this small town holds adventurous stories since it also once was used as a pirate hideout. Years later, San Jose del Cabo turned into a charming colonial town thanks to commercial ships which had to stop for water and supplies while they were traveling from Asia to trade porcelain, mercury, silks and other products.
San Jose del Cabo’s downtown main plaza with its warm architecture, has become an Art District where you can find art from all over the world, but mainly Mexican traditional art and local creations, which makes it a great place for shopping and dining. Its picturesque world-class marina faces the Sea of Cortez which is home to wildlife like marine birds, gray whales, and turtle hatchlings.
