Long stretches of cream sand beaches, craggy coves, and serene blue sea are the backdrop for the fast-growing developments, luxury enclaves and golf courses found alone the four-lane highway bridging party hub Cabo San Lucas and the laid-back colonial air of San Jose del Cabo in the 20-mile Tourist Corridor.
Boasting some of Latin America’s top resorts favored by Hollywood royalty, the Corridor is known for its stunning natural landscape studded with exclusive hotels and luxury gated communities that appeal to a wide clientele of wealthy and well-known, and even top world leaders during the 2003 Asian Pacific Economic Conference (APEC).
The Corridor is also home to more than half a dozen oceanfront championship courses, including Palmilla, El Dorado, and Cabo del Sol, that feature challenging “desert meets ocean” greens designed by golf legends like Tom Weiskopf, Jack Nicklaus, and Robert Trent Jones II.
However it’s not just high-end travelers and golfers who seek refuge in the spectacular coastline of the Corridor. During the winter months, California grey and humpback whales become frequent visitors off the waters of the Corridor as they pass by on their annual migration with their newborn calves in tow, often breaching or spy hopping within plain sight of the shore – and to the delight of hotel guests lucky enough to spot a spontaneous performance. Some resorts even signal a “whale sighting” warning to hotel guests during peak months December through March.
