Few places in the world can match Los Cabos when it comes to destination attractions. From year-round sunshine and glorious golden sand beaches to world-class fishing, diving, wining and dining, and pampering luxury, cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo have everything one could possibly want for an unforgettable vacation experience.

As might be expected, the vast majority of the three million people who annually visit this sun-splashed paradise on the southernmost rim of the Baja California peninsula stay in one of the region’s superb collection of seaside resorts. And they are superb. But here’s the thing…

There is an even better option, one that promises more luxury, more privacy, more spectacular one-of-a-kind amenities, and in many cases–remarkably–a more affordable alternative to the traditional resort vacation. It’s an amazing option, and one more and more people are beginning to discover and take advantage of to enhance their destination getaway experience.

Yes, we’re talking about vacation rentals in Los Cabos, be they chic beachfront condos or cliff-hugging luxury villas with jaw-dropping Pacific Ocean vistas.

With that in mind, here are three reasons to choose vacation rentals in Los Cabos over resorts for your next visit to paradise.

More Luxury

Prefer your vacation accommodations to be expansive, elegantly appointed, with breathtaking views from virtually every vantage point? Of course. Everyone does.

Well, there’s no comparison when it comes to vacation rentals in Los Cabos versus resort rooms or even suites.

For starters, vacation rentals are much bigger, often staggeringly so. The gold standard are the luxury villas that are perched high above Cabo San Lucas in the Land’s End city’s exclusive gated Pedregal neighborhood. Long the province of movie stars and captains of industry, these villas are mansion-like in size and scope, with manicured grounds, exquisite design and décor, high-end amenities like jacuzzis and home theaters, as well as horizon-stretching ocean views from every corner of the property.

Amazingly, these magnificent villas are often a more affordable week-long option than upscale resorts for families, couples traveling together, or groups like bachelorette or wedding parties.

That’s also the case, naturally, for penthouse and other scenically set condos and rental homes throughout the Capes Region. More modest in size if not luxurious amenities, these properties often compare favorably to resorts’ room rates for singles and couples.

More Privacy

In addition to capital “L” luxury, vacation rentals also offer a degree of privacy well beyond that offered by even the most intimate and exclusive local resorts. There are no lines for buffet breakfasts, no crowded swimming pools or beaches, no shared locker rooms for massages or spa experiences.

Your “vacation rental in Los Cabos” is solely reserved for you and you alone (and of course that special someone, or your chosen travel companions). If you want to skinny dip in the pool or jacuzzi, or enjoy a romantic sunset dinner on the terrace, there’s no one to pry, eavesdrop or otherwise impinge upon the intimacy of the experience. Privacy is total and absolute.

In essence, you’re living the life of a local rather than that of a tourist, and you’re doing so with the same amount of privacy you’d expect in your own home.

More Amenities

Almost all the things you would expect from a first-class resort are available in Los Cabos vacation rentals: from muy comfortable accommodations to swimming pools, palm-shaded hammocks, beach access, bottomless margaritas, and on-call concierge service.

And the few that aren’t can easily be arranged. Ready for a poolside massage or a dinner party for you and a few of your closest local friends? Mobile spas and private chefs are only a phone call away, and perfectly willing to tailor their offerings to your personal preferences.

Plus, of course, there are the luxurious residential amenities found in any coastal manse, from state-of-the-art kitchens and palapa-topped bbq stations to fully equipped business and fitness centers.

That’s the advantage of vacation rentals in Los Cabos, and it’s one no resort–regardless of reputation or service–can ever come close to matching. Call it the ultimate upgrade (from memorable to unforgettable), and by all means consider it for your next relaxing getaway to always sunny Los Cabos.

November 3, 2019

Fall season is now at its peak, as scores of anglers are arriving daily, many of them now preparing for tournaments, including the WON Tuna Jackpot scheduled for this coming week. This Sunday is the Los Cabos Iron Man event, which means many streets and Hwy. closures, adding to already congested logistics or trying to get anywhere. Fall weather patterns started off calm this week, before the north winds picked back up mid-week, even had one day where there was light scattered rainfall. Ocean water temperature ranged 80 to 84 degrees with moderate swells and at times swift currents.

Always heavy pressure this time of year on local bait resources, we are now seeing a combination of sardinas, slabs of squid, caballito, ballyhoo and some skippers able to find chihuil. Surprisingly supplies are holding up better than we would imagine, will be interesting to see how supplies hold through this month.

Charters are scouting out all directions, most local sportfishing fleets are fishing grounds from the Gordo Banks, Iman, San Luis and as far north as Vinorama.  Action has been spread out and changing from day to day, as to where the bite is best. Early week the best action proved to be for wahoo near Vinorama, finding the chihuil baitfish was the secret to success, not always easy to obtain these candy baits, more of a super panga deal, on certain high spots with specialized rigs. Not many wahoo were striking the trolled lures at this time, best chances were on slow trolled trap hooked baits and early morning before too many boats congregated. The wahoo were averaged in the 25 to 35 lb. class. High boats brought in five, other one, two or three, of course many other were lost for the normal wahoo reasons.

Dorado remained scarce and scattered, only seeing one or two fish for all groups of charter’s per day, we heard of more numbers on the Pacific, but even there the dorado were not nearly as numerous as previous months. More marlin appeared, even in the direction off of San Jose del, though the billfish were much more active towards Cabo San Lucas and on the Pacific. We even had some sailfish and at least one 180 lb. class blue marlin was accounted for. With the warmer water there are still chances at the larger sized black and blue marlin.

Yellowfin tuna were elusive, being targeted on San Luis Banks, as wells as Gordo Banks, though very few were actually landed this week, most of the tuna we did see were in the 60 to 90 lb. range, a few smaller 10 to 20 lb. These yellowfin hit a wide variety pf baits, not on lures, Drift fishing with squid or using chihuil and live skipjack produced strikes. Heavy pressure, combined with lots of nature food source, swift currents, now have these fish skittish and finicky, of course on any given day they could become more aggressive, they are definitely still yellowfin through the area.

Not much off the bottom, triggerfish, bonito, smaller sized snapper and cabrilla were the most common, swift currents have not helped that action at all.

Along the shoreline there were good numbers of juvenile roosterfish, which should always be released, also some early season sierra and jack crevalle in the mix.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an estimated 140 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 1 blue marlin, 2 sailfish, 14 striped marlin, 18 yellowfin tuna, 11 dorado, 52 wahoo, 4 barred pargo, 10 leopard grouper, 38 Mexican bonito, 8 yellow snapper, 2 dogtooth snapper, 8 sierra, 6 Pacific golden eyed tilefish, 4 rainbow runner, 4 jack crevalle, 24 roosterfish and 25 triggerfish.

Good Fishing, Eric

Food Festivals, Fishing Tournaments & Other Fiestas: November Events in Los Cabos

Fri, Nov 01, 2019

Cabo San Lucas Blog | Art Walk San Jose del Cabo | Baja Fishing | cabo san lucas blog | Cabo Vacation | Los Cabos Cultural Events | Los Cabos Events | Los Cabos Film Festival | Los Cabos International Film Festival | Los Cabos Ironman | los cabos tourist info | Mexico Travel Los Cabos Vacation Rentals

No month shines brighter than November when it comes to signature Los Cabos events. The region’s most glamorous event, the Los Cabos International Film Festival, once again promises red carpet celebrity sightings, as well as some of the best of contemporary North American cinema. The finest of fine dining will also be on display as dozens of the top chefs in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo gather for the area’s biggest food and wine festival, Sabor a Cabo. And of course there are fishing tournaments galore, abundant cultural to-dos, and iconic Mexican holidays like Day of the Dead.

In other words, while there’s never really a bad time to visit Los Cabos, it’s hard to find a better time than November.

Dia de Muertos – November 1 – 2

Mexico observes many holidays, but none quite so visually distinctive and emotionally resonant as El Dia de Muertos (Day of the Dead). This holiday to honor deceased family and friends dates back to the time of the Aztecs–who dedicated a festival to Mictecacihuatl, queen of the underworld, each August–but now takes place contemporaneously with the Catholic observance of Allhallowtide. Traditionally, it is thought that the souls of children return on November 1st, and the souls of adults on November 2nd. Families will often build ofrendas (altars) in their homes, welcoming back the spirits of the departed with some of their favorite food and drinks, as well as special holiday themed items like cempasuchil flowers (Aztec marigolds), calaveras de azucar (candy skulls), and a sweet bread called pan de muerto. The most famous calavera, an elegantly costumed skeleton named Catrina, was created in the early 20th century by illustrator Jose Guadalupe Posada. Catrina figures are commonly seen around Los Cabos during the Day of the Dead observances, as are a few public ofrendas.

Baja Ha-Ha Cruisers Rally – November 3 – 16

The funniest book every written about the Baja California peninsula and its idiosyncratic residents was the work of a Western Outdoor News columnist and all-around fine writer named Fred Hoctor. The book, called Baja Haha, was published in 1984 and has been something of a cult classic among gringo expats ever since. Sadly, Señor Hoctor is no longer with us, but his title and off-kilter humor lives on in the form of Baja Ha-Ha, a 750-mile cruisers rally from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas that began in the early 1990s and celebrates its 26th anniversary this year, from November 3rd to 16th. Cruising the Baja coast isn’t inherently funny in itself. Rather, it’s the safe but lighthearted approach of the participants, led by their “Grand Poobah,” that make the rally special. Since the inaugural event, over 3,000 boats and 10,000 sailors have participated. Seagoing vessels between 27’ and 100’ in length are eligible, and can look forward to two scheduled stops along the way, at Tortuga and Santa Maria Bays, before reaching Cabo San Lucas.

21st Annual WON Los Cabos Tuna Jackpot Tournament – November 6 – 9

The Western Outdoor News has a long history with Los Cabos, dating back to the 1950s, when Baja columnist Ray Cannon’s rave fishing reviews helped put the area on the destination travel map. The WON Tuna Jackpot is one of the larger fishing tournaments in Cabo San Lucas, a fixture of the autumn sporting calendar that follows hard on the heels of the Los Cabos Billfish and Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore and Black & Blue Tournaments. Last year’s event, the 20th edition, saw 163 boats compete for over $841,600 in prize money. Even bigger things are expected this year.

 San Jose del Cabo Art Walk – November 7, 14, 21, 28

The historic Distrito del Arte in San Jose del Cabo takes center stage each Thursday evening during high tourist season–November through June–when residents and visitors alike are invited to stroll its cobblestone streets and peruse the many eclectic fine arts galleries. Art Walk hours are 5 to 9 p.m., when the neighborhood comes alive with wine, cheese and guided tours, as well as colorful street artists and strolling mariachis.

 

Los Cabos International Film Festival – November 13 to 17

 

The Los Cabos International Film Festival returns for its 8th edition on November 13th, with an inaugural red carpet gala and screening at the Pabellon Cultural de la Republica in Cabo San Lucas. The celebrity and paparazzi studded galas receive much of the attention, but the heart of the festival consists of curated screenings at Cinemex Theaters at Puerto Paraiso, and behind the scenes conferences and programs designed to promote mutually beneficial collaborations between the North American film industries. Thus, the LCIFF’s long-running tagline: “Come See What the Neighbors Are Doing.” There will be plenty of star power this year, however. The biggest confirmed attendee so far is legendary actor and two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, who will appear in conjunction with the Latin American premiere of director Martin Scorsese’s new film, The Irishman, in which De Niro stars opposite fellow screen icons Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.

Sabor a Cabo International Food and Wine Festival – November 30

This is the biggest food and wine festival in Los Cabos, annually drawing over 3,000 attendees for a huge outdoor party at one of the area’s most picturesque locales. Food is the undoubted focus, with delicious dishes served up from over 60 of the best local chefs. But beverages also get their due, as top tequilas and mezcals are showcased, as well as regional wines from Baja’s Valle de Guadalupe. Entertainment, too, is presented on a grand scale; past performers include Grammy winner Lila Downs, Mexican supergroup Maná, and funk legends Earth, Wind & Fire. This year’s 14th annual “Taste of Cabo” will take place November 30 at Club Campestre Golf Club, site of several earlier fêtes. The musical headliner will be another multiple time Grammy winner, Madrid born singer Alejandro Sanz.

October 27, 2019

Busy times now in Los Cabos, peak fall tourist season, attracting hundreds of anglers from around the world, many of them participating in some of the world’s richest fishing tournaments, where pay outs can be in the millions of dollars. Weather settled down, perfect all around conditions, clear sunny skies, slightly brisk now early mornings, though days are still quite warm. Ocean swells minimal, with moderate variable breezes, shifting to the typical fall pattern, off the land, from the west early, then switching later out of the northeast, Ocean water temperature ranged 82 to 85 degrees from the Pacific and up past Los Frailes, or in the direction of the Sea of Cortez.

Sportfishing fleets and tournament participants are scouting out all directions, searching all possible options. Majority of local charters are now concentrating on the grounds from the Gordo Banks to Iman, San Luis and some venturing as far as Vinorama. Heavy pressure always means various bait options can become limited due to unavailable resource. Though this week with patience there seemed to be sufficient supplies of sardinas, slabs of squid and caballito. Sardinas were scarcer near the marina jetty’s and are now seen schooling off of Chileno, which means long back track for local bait vendors, as well as later start for anglers, if they want this bait option. Other anglers are going early, directly with squid and then some are catching chihuil on certain high spots, which proved to be probably the best chance now at hooking into a wahoo. Sardinas and the squid were best choice for finding any yellowfin tuna action. Dorado became very scattered, saw very few this week, not many billfish from the standard charters, more sailfish than others, a higher percentage of anglers were preferring to target wahoo or tuna.

Yellowfin tuna were found in recent days on the San Luis Bank, drift fishing with various baits, mainly sardinas and strips of squid. Yellowfin tuna to over 100 lb. were caught,  the majority of the tuna hooked into were in the 60 to 90 lb. class, no big numbers, but later in the week this bite did improve, some anglers later a couple of quality tuna. Only a handful of football sized yellowfin most were quality grade, of course lots of black skipjack and bonito to fight with.

Not many wahoo seemed to want the trolled lures, this week live bait proved best, particularly off of Vinorama, finding the live chihuil baitfish was not always an east guarantee. AS is the normal case, many more wahoo strikes were lost compared to actual fish landed. With the water temperature now still so warm, we expect wahoo action to be even better through next couple of months.

The a whole lot of bottom action even being attempted now, on and off currents and really nothing big happening, more triggerfish, bonito and smaller sized snapper.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an estimated 110 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 4 sailfish, 5 striped marlin, 88 yellowfin tuna, 9 dorado, 68 wahoo, 12 leopard grouper, 35 Mexican bonito, 19 yellow snapper, 3 dogtooth snapper, 4 pompano, 8 sierra, 6 spotted rose snapper, 12 rainbow runner, 8 Pacific golden eyed tilefish and 80 triggerfish.

October 20, 2019

The annual high stake billfish tournaments are now on going, with the granddaddy event of them all, the Bisbee Black & Blue, scheduled for this next week. So needless to say there are large numbers of visiting anglers now arriving. Last weekend’s scattered rain squalls, turned into more like isolated monsoons, very heavy rain on and off, which did cause major flooding in low lying locations. Now conditions are clear, drying out, high humidity just now starting to relent. Over the full moon period the winds became more unpredictable in recent days, coming from the north and at the same time swirling from the south. Ocean water temperature has ranged 80 to 85 degrees, warmer currents in the direction of the Sea of Cortez. With recent squalls, winds and currents, we saw varying ocean clarity. Most sportfishing charters locally were concentrating efforts on the grounds from the Gordo Banks to Iman and Vinorama. Bait supplies consisted of sardinas, being netted in the surf zone north of the marina at first light, also caballito, slabs of squid, ballyhoo, chihuil and skipjack being used.

Local Ports was closed partially Sunday and totally on Monday due to thunderstorms, fleets were back in operation Tuesday morning. Charters began scouting out to see where the best action could be found. Overall the bite proved to be more scattered than they were pre-storm. Combined factors of being full moon, baitfish a bit scarcer, added pressure, etc…More success proved to be found while using various baits, versus trolling lures.

The Gordo Banks produced a handful of yellowfin tuna up in the 100 lb. range, though numbers of yellowfin tuna found were higher near Iman Bank, still very spotty through the week, with anglers fortunate to land one or two tuna, with the majority ranging in the 20 to 70 lb. class. Dorado were scattered on these same grounds, found in smaller sized schools, while trolling lures, rigged ballyhoo, sardinas and chihuil. Most of the dorado we saw were in the 5 to 20 lb. range, heard of some larger bulls found on the Pacific.

Wahoo action being very good the previous week, slowed down over recent rainy and full moon period. Anglers who did best were the few that were able to find chihuil for use as bait for slow trolling. A handful also hit of Rapalas and rigged ballyhoo, we expect wahoo to become more active as conditions return to their liking.

A few sailfish and striped marlin being caught on the grounds off San Jose del Cabo, we heard of more billfish action on the Pacific and during the tournament they have weighed in impressive black and blue marlin.

Minimal bottom fishing being done now, no numbers of anything but triggerfish, a few amberjack, cabrilla, pargo, snapper and bonito.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an estimated 90 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 3 sailfish, 7 striped marlin, 72 yellowfin tuna, 76 dorado, 28 wahoo, 8 leopard grouper, 22 Mexican bonito, 1 broomtail grouper, 12 yellow snapper, 2 dogtooth snapper, 4 pompano, 1 mullet snapper, 5 surgeon fish, 12 sierra, 8 amberjack, 6 rainbow runner and 125 triggerfish.

When the Stars Come Out in Cabo: Robert de Niro to Attend Los Cabos Film Festival for the Latin American Premiere of His New Movie, The Irishman

Wed, Oct 16, 2019

Cabo San Lucas Blog | Art Walk San Jose del Cabo | Baja Fishing | Bisbee Los Cabos Fishing | cabo san lucas blog | Los Cabos International Film Festival | los cabos tourist info | Mexico Travel Los Cabos Vacation Rentals

Los Cabos has always been a favored vacation haunt of Hollywood movie stars and celebrities, dating back over 50 years to the days when John Wayne and Bing Crosby would fly into the tiny airstrip in Santiago to go white-winged dove hunting. In more recent years, however, the attractions have shifted from doves to the beautiful beaches, pampering amenities, and the privacy and luxury of ocean view villas.

The stars continue to visit Los Cabos regularly in 2019–from superstar athletes to A-list actors–but only rarely do they do so to work.

The Brad Pitt sword and sandal epic Troy in 2004 was the last major movie to use Cabo San Lucas as a primary filming location. The only work opportunity now is the Los Cabos Film Festival, which since 2012 has been drawing iconic stars of the silver screen to premiere new work or accept lifetime achievement awards. Acclaimed actor and two-time Academy Award winner Robert De Niro, for example, will appear at the 2019 LCFF in conjunction with the Latin American premiere of Martin Scorsese’s new epic The Irishman, which also stars Oscar winners Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.

De Niro isn’t the first big-name star to walk the red carpet at the Pabellon Cultural de la Republica in Cabo San Lucas, where the festival holds it opening events and major premieres. In the seven years since it began, the festival has welcomed Edward Norton, Matt Dillon, Reese Witherspoon, Liam Neeson, Ewan McGregor, Dennis Quaid, Oliver Stone and Nicole Kidman, among other notable actors and directors.

This year’s version, the 8th annual Los Cabos Film Festival, will be held Nov. 13 to 17, and will once again spotlight programs aimed at bringing together the North American film industries of the U.S., Canada and Mexico. Much of the festival is dedicated to behind the scenes meetings, but of course for non-industry types who wish to attend the highlights will be the nightly premieres, which are presented by people like De Niro who are involved as actors or directors with the chosen films.

There’s no doubt that Scorsese’s The Irishman is the most anticipated premiere this year. Not only does De Niro’s scheduled appearance in Los Cabos stir interest, the film itself has been heavily anticipated for years; not only because it brings together an iconic director and all-star cast famed for their gangster roles, but because the film itself explores the intersection of organized crime with American politics. Former labor leader Jimmy Hoffa is one of several real life figures portrayed in the film.

The Irishman has also garnered substantial advance interest due to a pioneering new process Scorsese used in the film, which allows him to “youth-ify” his actors digitally so that their characters can be shown at different times of their life.

Those wishing to attend red carpet events, parties and premieres at the Los Cabos Film Festival can do so with VIP passes, available for purchase. Individual tickets can also be purchased for the dozens of films which will be screened at Cinemex Theaters at Puerto Paraiso, the shopping center which overlooks the Cabo San Lucas Marina. These tickets are no more expensive than normal movie tickets, but allow residents and visitors to see some of the most exciting new films in both English and Spanish.

Not everyone who attends the festival will see stars in person, in other words, but anyone who wants to can see them up on the screen in area theaters.

October 13, 2019

Increasing numbers of anglers are arriving each day, in the next couple of weeks the crowds of the fall season crowds will be peaking. Weather is now transitioning, noticeably cooler early mornings, though days are still warm, very humid, more tropical cloud cover and over the weekend major rain squalls, We saw wide varying ocean conditions this week, from flat glass, no breeze at all, to swirling winds and choppy seas.

The fishing action was almost as unpredictable as the wither patterns. One day very few fish would cooperate, next day we had great action for the elusive wahoo, then the yellowfin tuna action became more active, dorado were spotty, but some nice schools were occasionally encountered, at times close to shore, others further offshore. On Friday, legendary La Playita local pangero Hugo Pino brought in a yellowfin that weighed in at 264 lb., impressive cow, first of this class we have heard about this season off of the Gordo Banks, the tuna hit on a live skipjack. On Saturday local super panga skipper Chame Pino landed a 111 lb. tuna

Through most of the week the more consistent all around action was near Iman Bank, also north to San Luis and Vinorama. Sardinas were now being netted ear the marina jetty, already becoming more limited as season becomes busier, ballyhoo was a great option for wahoo, slabs of squid were using for drift fishing for the tuna, caballito were another option. A few charters were searching for chihuil, which were ideal for wahoo, when obtainable. Through mid-week the wahoo went on a great bite, fish to over 40 lb., striking trolled Rapalas, skirted lead heads and various baits. Rigged ballyhoo proved to work especially well. Some charters had as many as four wahoo, while losing other strikes. Things can happen quickly with these speedsters are aggressive.

Yellow tuna action was mainly centered on Iman Ban, but this week a handful of nicer quality tuna came off of the Gordo Banks. Bite was spotty from day to day, as currents and water clarity was fluctuating, best bet for the yellowfin seemed to be drift fishing with sardinas, squid and also slow trolling smaller sized skipjack. We saw yellowfin tuna this week from football sized, all the way up to cows of 264 lb. most tuna we are seeing were in the 15 to 70 lb. range.

Dorado became more scattered that they had been, though there are some decent schools of these fish being found, of the fish we did see, we saw more respectable sized 10 to 20 lb. specimens.

We heard of more striped marlin activity out of Cabo San Lucas, though on the grounds off of San Jose del Cabo and towards the north there was some striped marlin and a few sailfish reported.

Off the bottom there was no consistent bite going on, a scattering of pargo, snapper, cabrilla, bonito and the highlight were several dogtooth snapper up to 45 lb., we have not seen many of those fish this season.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an estimated 110 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 1 sailfish, 6 striped marlin, 68 yellowfin tuna, 29 dorado, 47 wahoo, 7 leopard grouper, 8 Mexican bonito, 8 yellow snapper, 3 dogtooth snapper, 2 barred pargo, 3 pompano, 6 sierra, 4 amberjack, 4 surgeon fish and 95 triggerfish.

Good Fishing, Eric

Seven Days of Dining Delights During San Jose del Cabo Restaurant Week

Wed, Oct 09, 2019

Cabo San Lucas Blog | Art Walk San Jose del Cabo | Cabo Events | cabo info | Cabo Vacation | Los Cabos Restaurants | los cabos tourist info | Mexico Travel Los Cabos Vacation Rentals | Sabor a Cabo | San Jose Restaurants | Whale Watching in Los Cabos

Cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo each have their own unique charms. Cabo San Lucas, for instance, is where you go if you want to experience world-class fishing or boisterous nightlife. San Jose del Cabo, on the other hand, is better known for more sophisticated attractions like culture and cuisine.

Speaking of the latter, the foremost cultural event in San Jose del Cabo–its seasonal Thursday night Art Walk–doesn’t resume until November, so in the meantime, the city is focusing on its renowned culinary scene with a weeklong celebration featuring 41 of its finest restaurants. That would be the second annual San Jose del Cabo Restaurant Week, which takes center stage from October 19th to 26th.

What makes this week different from any other, one might ask? For starters, all participating restaurants will be offering special three-course prix fixe dinner menus for only 800 pesos (approximately $40 U.S.) per person throughout the week.

That’s more than one might expect to pay at a local taquería, of course, but a veritable bargain for a night out at one of the city’s benchmark restaurants.

The most iconic of all San Jose del Cabo restaurants are undoubtedly the trio of farm-to-fork eateries found in the small community of Animas Bajas, just minutes outside the historic center of the city.  Acre, Los Tamarindos and Flora’s Field Kitchen not only grow all their own produce and source meat and fish from local sources, they also serve up their fresh fare in congenial outdoor surroundings, with tables set amid farm fields with views of rolling foothills and distant mountains. All three are considered to be among the best restaurants in the country, and two–Acre and Los Tamarindos–are participating in Restaurant Week… meaning visitors can sample their superb artisanal food and drinks at a rare budget-friendly price.

Those less interested in haute cuisine than comfort food will find plenty to like as well. Pizzas are readily available from Neapolitan-themed Pan di Bacco, and pastas from Italian specialists La Dolce, La Forchetta, and Macca Pasta Bar. Mesquite grilled American style hamburgers, meanwhile, headline the offerings from Barrio Burger; and the region’s first microbrewery, Baja Brewing Company, also has great food and drinks on tap.

But even that’s barely scratching the surface. There are vegan options; Japanese and Chinese cuisine fare; Latin American street food; traditional Mexican fare from Jazmin’s and Mi Casa; barefoot beachfront burritos and margaritas from the East Cape’s picturesque Buzzard’s Grill; upscale hotel dining at Café des Artistes at the JW Marriott and Hotel El Ganzo; fresh local seafood galore; and much, much more.

Several restaurants will also celebrate their anniversaries during Restaurant Week in San Jose del Cabo. Mi Cocina, for example, the gorgeous courtyard restaurant at boutique hotel Casa Natalia, will celebrate its 20th anniversary as a downtown fine dining standout with a special dinner party on Thursday, October 24th.

The website for San Jose del Cabo Restaurant Week can be found at www.restaurantweeksanjosedelcabo.com , and includes information on all 35 participating restaurants, notably their address, hours of operation, as well as contact info to make reservations or learn about special menus ahead of time.

Don’t miss this golden opportunity to taste your way through San Jose del Cabo, the culinary capital of Los Cabos and proud home to some of the finest restaurants in all of Mexico.

Opening ceremonies will be held in Plaza Mijares, the main square in downtown San Jose del Cabo, on Saturday, October 19th, and will feature tasty bites from all 41 participating restaurants. Tickets for this “starter course” are 700 pesos (about $35 U.S.) on the day of the event, or 500 pesos when purchased presale and accompanied by a book donation. Presale tickets are available at Pan di Bacco restaurant of Casa Natalia hotel.

All proceeds benefit the benefit the Biblioteca Pablo L Martinez, a library named in honor of the late great chronicler of local history.

Anglers –

The busy fall season has already started, we saw much larger crowds of anglers arriving and this will continue through November. Last week we were all closely watching the development and progress of Tropical Storm Norda, we ended up being very fortunate as this system stayed along the mainland and never made much impact at all on Southern Baja, just a few sprinkles and cloud cover and of course increased tropical humidity. Weather patterns are changing progressively now, cooler mornings, though high temperatures are still around 90 degrees. Forecast looks clear for now, which is a relief for all of the vising anglers and fleet operators as well,

Calm ocean now, with very slight breezes, water temperature in the 83/84 degree range and clear blue water close to shore. Bait has consisted of sardinas, being netted near the marina jetty areas, also some caballito, ballyhoo and slabs of squid available. Main fishing grounds being concentrated on have been from Palmilla Pint to Iman Bank and in between.

The action for yellowfin tuna slowed way down, as more black skipjack were schooling on the same tuna grounds, early in the week a handful of yellowfin up to 70 lb. were landed, but after that it was more dorado and wahoo which were dominating the action, though over the weekend the tuna action did seem to start back up near the Iman bank, as several yellowfin tuna in the 40 to 60 lb. class were accounted for.. A new group of dorado moved in, especially off of the Palmilla Point, where limits were the rule for fish of 10 to 20 lb., they were striking on a variety of trolling lures as well as baits. Inspectors are now regularly checking limits, so make sure to not go over your two fish limit of dorado.

Wahoo became more active as well, areas to the north of Punta Gorda, as well as off of Palmilla produced wahoo to over 40 lb., trolling Rapalas accounted for the majority of strikes, some charters accounted for up to three ‘hoo, which is good for this early in the season.

We heard of some larger sized bull dorado on the Pacific, up to 40 lb., though no big numbers at all. Also we heard of a handful of cow sized yellowfin tuna being encountered offshore traveling with porpoise, we expect to start seeing these large tuna to make their way towards the Gordo Banks soon, as they are running behind schedule this year.

Not much going off the bottom, though there were a few amberjack in the 50 lb. class landed, also a selection or pargo, cabrilla, bonito, pompano and triggerfish. Current has slacked, so maybe that will help improve bottom action, though most anglers now have preferred to target the surface species.

Billfish action out of San Jose del Cabo was scattered, a few sailfish and striped marlin being the main deal, found on the same grounds such as Iman Bank.

The combined sportfishing fleet launching out of the panga area from Puerto Los Cabos Marina sent out an estimated 102 charters for the week and anglers reported an approximate fish count of: 3 sailfish, 5 striped marlin, 32 yellowfin tuna, 325 dorado, 26 wahoo, 12 leopard grouper, 14 Mexican bonito, 16 yellow snapper, 12 big eye jack, 12 barred pargo, 8 pompano, 5 sierra, 9 amberjack and 75 triggerfish.

Good Fishing, Eric

Fishing Takes Center Stage: October Events in Los Cabos

Thu, Oct 03, 2019

Cabo San Lucas Blog | Art Walk San Jose del Cabo | Baja 1000 | Baja Fishing | Bisbee Los Cabos Fishing | Cabo Events | Cabo Fishing | cabo info | cabo san lucas blog | Cabo San Lucas Fishing | Cabo Vacation | Los Cabos Cultural Events | Los Cabos Events | Los Cabos Fishing | Los Cabos International Film Festival | Mexico Travel Los Cabos Vacation Rentals | Whale Watching in Los Cabos

October is a big month in Los Cabos. Not only does it signal the traditional start of high-tourist season, but the start of high fishing season as well. Three of Cabo San Lucas’ biggest fishing tournaments take place in October, including the biggest of them all: Bisbee’s Black & Blue. High stakes and huge payouts are the norm in October, a tradition that also can be seen on Los Cabos’ picturesque East Cape, which is home to a high-powered tuna shootout.

Cabo San Lucas also hosts visitors from around the globe in October for Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bashes at Cabo Wabo Cantina. The Red Rocker is the celebrity most associated with the Land’s End city, but many more join him for this annual series of concerts at the iconic downtown nightclub.

Sammy Hagar’s 72nd Birthday Bashes at Cabo Wabo Cantina – Oct. 9, 11, 13

Every year since 1990, loyal “Redheads” from around the world have flocked to Cabo San Lucas for Sammy Hagar’s Birthday Bashes at Cabo Wabo Cantina. In 2019, the former Van Halen and Montrose celebrates his 72nd year on the planet with an all-star cast of visiting musicians, including The Circle members Michael Anthony, Jason Bonham, and Vic Johnson. Shows are scheduled for October 9, 11 and 13. General admission tickets are available to winners of a random drawing, but those who aren’t selected will still have an opportunity to attend. Some dinner show tickets will be made available in early October on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Los Cabos Billfish Tournament – Oct. 13 – 17

Just as September is El Mes de la Patria, the “the country’s month,” in México, October is the month of the fishing tournament in Cabo San Lucas. Bisbee’s two cash-rich tournaments–the Los Cabos Offshore and Black & Blue–get most of the publicity, but the Los Cabos Billfish Tournament also sends out a siren call to big-game fishermen eager for big-money prizes and jackpots. The three tournaments combined last year to pay out over $5,500,925. The 21st annual LCBT has three entry levels: a $5,000 base entry for each 6-person team; daily jackpots for the largest tuna, wahoo and dorado; and daily billfish release jackpots. Optional marlin only jackpots are available to teams that paid base entry (this year with two levels). Registration and the post-tournament gala awards ceremony will both be hosted by Playa Grande, a Solmar Group resort.

Bisbee’s Los Cabos Offshore – October 17 – 20

Commonly known as “Little Bisbee’s,” to differentiate it from the “Big Bisbee’s” Black & Blue marlin fishing tournament that also takes place each October in Los Cabos, the Los Cabos Offshore dates back to 2002, and is considered a more laid-back, charity focused endeavor than the Black & Blue. That said, The LCO joined rarified company last year when its overall payouts exceeded one million dollars ($1,165,000 to be exact), making it one of the very few tournaments ever to reach that elite benchmark. Cash prizes are awarded to the teams with the three biggest qualifying fish in the game and billfish categories at the LCO, with thousands of meals donated to local families in need. Base entry for teams is $1,500 U.S., with $17,000 necessary for “across the board” entry in all jackpots and challenges.

Bisbee’s Black & Blue – October 22 – 26

Oft billed as “The World’s Richest Fishing Tournament,” thanks to its million dollar payouts, this marlin fishing tournament originally premiered in 1981, and remains to this day the highest profile annual event in Los Cabos. The $4,165, overall payout in 2006 was and still is the largest in sportfishing history, although last year’s winners took home a more than respectable $3,004,900 out of an available purse of 3,693,625. Base entry for this millionaire maker is $5,000 U.S. per team, and requires a $71,500 U.S. outlay across all categories, jackpots and challenges. Prizes are awarded for the top five catches of black and blue marlin, assuming they meet the minimum standards (300 lbs.).

Van Wormer Resort Tuna Shootout – Oct. 26

One-day fishing shootouts are a tradition on the East Cape, at least where Van Wormer Resorts are concerned. Van Wormer hosts a dorado shootout each July in which the winner takes home a new car (or in 2019, a Volkswagen Amarok pickup track). The winners of the October tuna shootout, the 7th edition of which takes place Oct. 26, won’t get anything nearly as flashy as that. Just cold hard cash. The largest tuna caught on the day in question will earn one lucky team of anglers approximately $35,000. Base entry is only $500 and in addition to participation covers dinner at the awards ceremony at Hotel Palmas de Cortez in Los Barriles. Second and third place will also share in the over $100,000 in total payouts, with jackpots and raffle and drawing prizes also up for grabs.
