Baja Sur’s East Cape, Mexico - The Best Place to Travel in 2020 (Discoverdior)
Just when you think the Baja buzz has reached a fever pitch, new arrivals make it all the more thrilling. -(Discover Dior)
This year, the locus of the excitement has shifted away from the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo up to the East Cape, where a dreamy new 1,000-acre luxury enclave has finally come to fruition near Los Barriles.
When to visit
The summer (Jul–Sep) is hot and rainy, with a slight chance of hurricanes. Fall (Oct–Nov) is busy and it’s the best period for fishing.
Key events include Fiesta de San José del Cabo (San José del Cabo, Mar), celebrating the nearby town’s patron saint with music, dancing, street food and parades. The Baja Sur Tequila and Mariachi Festival is in Oct.
Travelers from most area typically stay up to a week based on Google trends results!
The Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas opened in October, with 141 rooms overlooking the placid Sea of Cortéz, and the Costa Palmas Beach & Yacht Club is welcoming members and hotel guests to its pools, golf course, two miles of beachfront, and — should you need a place to park your superyacht — a glittering, lake-size marina. Keep an eye out in 2021 for the arrival of Amanvari, Aman Resorts’ corner of Costa Palmas, with 20 villas and 24 residences.
To conclude, all of that is merely the gateway to the real draw: An undisturbed corner of Baja where desert, mountains, and water meet. —Lila Harron Battis
