In the Cabo Zone

INSIDE: The Best Golf; Dining; Accommodations; Fishing Pitahayas Famous Margarita Orientation Other Activities

Everything wonderful you've heard about Los Cabos, Mexico?Well, it's all true. Championship golf courses perched dramatically between ocean and desert, five-star resorts, prolific nightlife and some of the world's finest sportfishing--Cabo has it all and then some. The tip of the Baja Peninsula now boasts the best golf south of Pebble Beach (three Nicklaus Signature layouts as well as designs from Tom Fazio, Robert Trent Jones Jr. and Tom Weiskopf). Plus, Cabo has a lot more to offer in the fun department than Pebble, and the margaritas are spectacular.

The Los Cabos area consists of two towns: the traditional Mexican village of San José del Cabo, which local residents share amicably with a rapidly growing number of tourists, and, about twenty miles down the coast, Cabo San Lucas, where tourists reign supreme and the party never stops. Along the Carretera Transpeninsular (Transpeninsula Highway), the corridor that connects the two towns, you'll find a nearly continuous string of snazzy resorts and brilliant golf.

The past few years have seen an amazing influx of money into the area. Construction is everywhere, and the latest trend is toward high-dollar properties--expensive resorts like Las Ventanas, private golf clubs like Fazio's Querencia and multimillion-dollar houses on the rocky cliffs overlooking the ocean.

Where else in the world can you spend your morning battling a fat tuna or marlin, your afternoon testing your nerve on Jack Nicklaus's finest Signature track and your evening enjoying a spectacular meal beneath the stars?It's sunny. It's beautiful. It's wild. It's Cabo.
