Los Cabos Travel
Many people will be traveling south of the border this year for Spring Break in search of beautiful weather, warm beaches, delicious local cuisine, and the endless number of activities to be found. If you are among the throngs of people lucky enough to make your way to Mexico, consider Cabo San Lucas as your destination of choice.
Head to downtown Cabo San Lucas on October 18th to join in Fiesta de Cabo San Lucas, the celebration of the patron saint of Cabo. Festivities include a parade that passes through downtown’s closed streets. There are depictions of the patron, dances, music, and food. Lots of food! Street vendors set up around the area and serve local cuisine as well as international treats. The vendors and performances change every year which make it an enjoyable and unique experience each time. Best of all, there is no admission fee.

It was just after 3pm on day two in Cabo San Lucas when it hit me. I could live here.
360 days of sun every year, some of the best beaches in Mexico, a county of water sports and fishing, great restaurants, and plenty for “la familia” to do. Sure, I’d have to find a new career, but where there’s a will, there’s a way?
Though many travelers to Cabo San Lucas were concerned about the course of hurricane Jimena, the impact so far has been minimal and according to recent reports, the path of the storm has changed course, leaving the Northern part of the Baja Peninsula preparing for the worst. According to Weather.com, “The hurricane has passed to west and is now north of the resorts along the southern tip of Baja California. The area did not experience any major impacts.”
It shouldn’t surprise you that across Mexico there are several festivals celebrating tequila. After all, Mexico is the birthplace of the popular drink and there’s no reason not to be proud of that! In October, Cabo San Lucas hosts the Baja Sur Tequila and Mariachi Festival, a 3 day event that celebrates the history and quality of tequila with the music of mariachi. What could be better?
The crew of the Cap’n Jake saved the best for last by catching the winning fish moments before the end of the tournament taking the Day 3 Marlin Jackpots with a 341 lbs blue marlin, beating out the second place catch by more than 30 lbs. The Day 3 earnings were almost $80,000.
Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore Tournament began today in Cabo San Lucas. The actual competition starts tomorrow with the first of three days of fishing. Entrants spent today finishing registration and enjoying a nice drink with teammates and rivals alike at the tournament’s welcoming cocktail party which allows participants a final chance at relaxation before competition gets underway.
