Gay Travel Cabo San Lucas
Right at the tip of the Baja California peninsula lies Cabo San Lucas, one of the most popular resort destinations in Mexico. Jimmy Buffet and Sammy Hagar, who espouse their love of Cabo in various forms, made Cabo famous: Buffet with his Margaritaville and Hagar with his Cabo Wabo Cantina and tequila.
Thankfully there is more to Cabo then country stars shilling stereotypes. Cabo distinguishes itself from other Mexican resorts with a varied offering that includes world-class dining, everyday eateries, lush golf courses, calm surf, epic sports fishing, wild-as-you-want-it nightlife and every water sport imaginable. Cabo has become a favorite among the elite, as well as the middle-class, and it’s clear to see why. Cabo successfully manages the delicate balance of contemporary luxury and local custom.
There are three main areas to Cabo. San Jose del Cabo is considered the Old Town, and is closest to the airport. San Jose delivers the authentic Mexican experience, with its colonial architecture, art galleries and lively town square encompassing much of the laid-back ethos of Mexican life. Cabo San Lucas is the “Main Town,” and is the infamous entertainment hub of the area. Here you will find the majority of the all-night party venues, as well as the oft-photographed Arch at Land’s End. A highway called The Corridor connects Cabo’s raucous party scene and San Jose’s traditional elegance. This is where resorts, golf courses, and super-luxury villas have spread like wildfire.
During the summer, Cabo is cooler than San Jose by about 3-5º F, and if the winds blow from the Pacific rather than the Gulf this difference is higher. Cabo is also less rainy than San Jose, although both cities can be affected by occasional summertime hurricanes. March through July is considered the dry season, although peak travel season is during the winter months of November to February. January is the driest of those months, so try to travel then for maximum sun!
