San Jose’s Estuary
The Estuary, located next to downtown San Jose del Cabo, is a beautiful place to take a walk, bird watch and observe the beauty of nature. Among the fine feathered friends you may see on your visit are herons, ducks, egrets, pelicans and osprey. The Estuary has brought visitors to the area for more than three centuries including pirates, nature lovers and over 250 species of migratory birds.
The fresh water that empties into the estuary starts in the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains. These mountains are peaks of granite that tower 6000 feet above sea level where the rain is more plentiful than in the dry desert below. The river mostly travels underground for 30 miles or so before reaching the mouth of the estuary. It has been a crucial element in the development of the area. Pericu Indians, Spanish galleons and Jesuit missionaries were all drawn to this important source of fresh water.
When visiting San Jose del Cabo stop by for a walk through nature! You never know what you may see.

In Cabo San Lucas
“You have to make a distinction between the border incidents that are going on and the places like Playacar, Cancun, Cabo San Lucas and Puerto Vallarta, which are exceedingly safe.”
Reported February 26, 2009
Recently, the media has reported several drug cartel skirmishes occurring along the Mexican border. These problems are happening mainly in the border towns of Tijuana, Chihuahua City and Ciudad Juarez. Due to the increase in cartel activity, the State Department has issued a travel alert for these areas of Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is geographically isolated from these reported problem areas. Located on the southern tip of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas is approximately 1,000 miles from the problem border towns. Cabo San Lucas is a key tourist location where thousands of people from all over the world travel to every year. As a major spring break destination, Cabo San Lucas is visited by thousands of college students annually.
