Mention golf and, no doubt, Los Cabos will come up in the conversation. That’s because Cabo golf courses are considered some of the best in the Americas, if not the world—and in a region along the tip of the Baja Peninsula that is but a stone’s throw away via private and scheduled air from top U.S. gateways.
Los Cabos, now the golden corridor between San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, plus the wild and scenic Eastern Cape on the edge of the Sea of Cortez, has long served as refuge for the rich and famous—mostly those escaping the spotlight and cameras of Hollywood. And that continues to be the case as tabloids track the name-grabbing parties, honeymoons and retreats that are part of beach life in Los Cabos. As post-pandemic energy begins to lure Americans out of isolation, Los Cabos awaits with all one could want—over-the-top luxury resorts, famous golf courses, exquisite wellness spas, celebrated dining and exciting adventures—to get passionate travelers back into the game of life.
Business Travel Has Its Rewards
For business travelers, Los Cabos is the perfect playground for mixing business with pleasure. The Baja peninsula at the confluence of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean offers a variety of best-in-class resorts where meetings large and small keep the deals in motion. “Bleisure” is on tap in Los Cabos and the destination delivers a showing of just what those hard-gained rewards points can do. And what that often means for business travelers is… golf!
With 18 golf courses, laid out by the game’s leading designers, that explore a mélange of rugged desert terrain, spell-binding sea views, soft cooling winds and stunning swirls of sand bowls and rolling greens, the game is in play in Los Cabos. Whether you need a 27-hole masterpiece designed by Jack Nicklaus (Palmilla Golf Club), or the deft touch of Tom Weiskopf (Desert Course at Cabo del Sol), the creative hand of Robert Trent Jones II (Cabo Real Golf Club), the latest design effort by Greg Norman (Rancho San Lucas Golf Club), the in-demand style of Tom Fazio (Chileno Bay), or the competitive edge of Tiger Woods (El Cardonal at Diamante Dunes), there is a course for you and a winning hole with your name on it. Take clients out for an 18-hole pleasure day beside the ocean or bond with colleagues over a memorable round along desert bluffs. Los Cabos is often the go-to spot for PGA slams and invitationals. Play like the pros in Los Cabos, and sometimes even with the pros.
Once a stretch of fishing villages at the bottom of Baja California Sur, Los Cabos started with only two courses. The 9-hole Punta Sur Golf Club at Vidanta near San José del Cabo opened in 1987 and was sold in 2012 to become the Punta Sur Golf Club at Vidanta Los Cabos. Then, in the early 1990s, Jack Nicklaus was brought in to create the Mountain and Arroyo nines at Palmilla Golf Club, still a favorite and now one of six Nicklaus-designed courses in the region. Since then, Los Cabos has boomed into a full bucket list destination, not only for the beaches but for the bragging-rights golf courses that continue to make their mark.
But what happens after the game can be just as important – and that means unparalleled dining. Whether on the greens taking in the 19th hole views at Quivira or settling into fresh seafood sensations on a sunset cruise around El Arco, or toasting to a farm-to-table meal at an immersive organic farm, Los Cabos offers a full range of gastronomic adventures. Enjoy Baja fish tacos on the beach, a celebrity chef-orchestrated degustation – and all things in between.
Consider complementing a day at the golf club with a day at the health club. Spas sizzle in Los Cabos and are often the centerpiece amenity showcased at many of the destination’s in-demand resorts. Take an immersive shamanic journey into the inner and outer realms of consciousness; indulge in a muscle-melting four-hands body treatment; experience the aromas and healing powers of local herbs mixed and blended into organic oils and lotions. Of course, your facial awaits, or it might be as simple as a foot massage as you look over the blue waters and wonder how you could have ever lived without this little piece of Cabo in your life.
But there is so much more to Los Cabos, and you will want to spend your moments between meetings and office mayhem making every minute count. So you count on the adventurous side of Cabo to take you to new places and pour on new experiences to be locked in and remembered. There are whales to track and whale sharks to discover; nature preserves to hike with secret waterfalls and sparkling swimming holes; parasailing above the cliffs or flyboarding above the waves. These are only-in-Cabo experiences and your time is now to connect with nature and feel alive.
