Puerto Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur.
This 2,000 acre master-planned community everything: hotels, marina, golf course and residential neighborhoods. It also has a combination of what nature provided to Los Cabos. Located only five minutes from downtown San Jose del Cabo and twenty minutes from Los Cabos International Airport, Puerto Los Cabos boasts three miles of white sand coastline and is nestled in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains in the semi-arid desert of Los Cabos.
Developed by Grupo Questro, headed by Eduardo Sanchez-Navarro, one of the most well-known visionary groups of land development in Los Cabos for world-class destinations, this team produced one of the most sought-after developments in Baja. As a gateway to the Sea of Cortés, the marina has 200 slips plus a boat yard. Hotels include some of the vanguards of the world such as the Ritz Carlton, JW Marriott and Dreams. Each of the residential neighborhoods has its own unique character, some with dramatic elevations allowing views of unspoiled beaches, mountains, and city lights. Estate-sized lots offer privacy and expansion with full-ownership residences. Each community has a beach club for community gatherings; some include a fitness center, spa and restaurant. A signature 18-hole composite golf course, designed by golf legends Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman, each creating 9-holes, the front nine private for homeowners, allow golfers to experience the unique layout of each champion.
An annual social extravaganza is held in the spring for the residents of Puerto Los Cabos called “The Hole Enchilada”, full of scheduled activities for the entire family based around golf: Seven days of unlimited golf, golf clinics, fiestas, wine tastings, Sunday brunch, whale watching, spa services, cooking classes, awards celebration and a Kids Kamp for children to enjoy a wide range of special activities designed for the little ones. Another community activity is the annual Par ‘n Panga event, a weekend golf and fishing tournament.
Other activities abound for residents and visitors alike. Puerto Los Cabos is home to Wirikuta Botanical Garden, a 12-acre park designed with thousands of cacti and succulent plants from deserts from around the world. The Sculpture Garden has a collection of monumental art by some of Mexico’s most famous living artists. Located in an ocean cove, the Dolphin Discovery has friendly dolphins living in a natural habitat where guests may take part in their dolphin program.
A visit to Puerto Los Cabos is an eye-opener for those seeking the extraordinary.
