Puerto Los Cabos

Puerto Los Cabos, San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur.

puerto-los-cabos-2015-photomexicoThis 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.

French Riviera

French-Riviera_3March2016_RP_23The Bakery and Bistro has been a favorite for more than 15 years, this quaint bistro offers not only French cuisine but also a chance to experience French techniques with a Mexican twist. One such concoction is a traditional Mexican sope topped with refried beans, mushrooms, béchamel sauce, and a touch of chile. Another is a dish called tiradito, which consists of a fusion of yellowtail tuna sashimi and ceviche. The rib eye of Sonoran beef is cooked to perfection, served with mashed potatoes and veggies in hibiscus sauce.

French-Riviera_23nov15_HR_24And for dessert? There is an entire case of pastries, including a variety of macaroons, napoleons, crème brûlée, and dessert crepes. On any given day, the pastry chef may surprise you with a chocolate tube filled with mouse made of traditional Mexican cocoa with raspberries and mint. Drop by at teatime and indulge in an ice cream cocktail. Ask for the chef’s dinner special, or a tasting menu can be enjoyed for approximately $30 U.S. per person, and includes appetizer, main course, dessert and a glass of wine. Catering offered, including delivery service, especially for weddings. Live music during Art Walk on Thursday nights.

Nestled among galleries and studios in the heart of San José del Cabo’s historic Distrito del Arte, Mi Casa is an elegant showcase for Los Cabos-style local color and traditional Mexican specialty dishes. The restaurant’s picturesque and romantic courtyard dining area is in sync with neighborhood’s bohemian ambience, but the delicious menu offerings are a unique fusion of México’s culinary heritage and the artistic sensibilities of Alain Derouin, excecutive chef for Grupo Mi Casa (there is another Mi Casa restaurant in Cabo San Lucas, as well as acclaimed stand-alones like Café Canela, Peacock’s, and La Panga Antigua).

Mi-Casa-SJC_3Nov2015_MV_03Begin your fine dining journey with beloved Baja starters like almejas rellenas (fire pit cooked queen clams stuffed with bacon, cheese, and veggies) and choriburro a machaca  and chorizo-filled burrito, then progress to regional favorites like Pueblan Chile en Nogada and Mole Poblano, and that famed Yucatecan standard, Cochinita Pibil, before finishing with decadent meal cappers like a Mexican goat cheese tart baked with piloncillo and Damiana liqueur, and añejo tequila infused mango ice cream. And for the maximum Mi Casa experience, pair your multi-course meal with selections from the internationally representative wine list, including excellent options from Baja’s own wine country, Valle de Guadalupe outside Ensenada.
