But what do you think we need here in Cabo?

What do you think Cabo is lacking in the shopping department or things to do? I think we need a store for bedding – maybe Bed Bath and Beyond?  Also, maybe a dance school and a cooking school would be good too for visitors as well as locals. Chime in on the comments below, on what you think Cabo is lacking in the Shopping department – or comment on our Facebook page!

Top Three Reasons To Retire In Cabo San Lucas

It’s a world-class destination for travelers worldwide. It’s the chosen vacation spot of celebrities. It’s a romantic wedding spot for young and old couples alike. It is of course, Cabo San Lucas.

One other thing it is – is a prime location for those considering retirement outside of the United States. We’re offering up our top three reasons for those heading into their twilight years to take a peek at moving to Los Cabos for retirement in luxury.

Our top three reasons, by the way – come from experience – since we live here – and have for a while – we can speak first hand to all of this. Certainly the luxury homes in Cabo and the five star hotels and resorts are a perk – as well as the fin dining – and nightlife. But for people looking to actually move to Cabo San Lucas – these are what we feel the top three reasons to do this are.

REASON 3 to RETIRE IN CABO: The oceans. There’s two. And, not only are they beautiful to look at – they’re bristling with life, and there are tons of fun family activities you can engage in such as fishing, sailing, whale-watching,

REASON 2 to RETIRE IN CABO: The Weather. It’s beautiful. Nearly ALL the time. And we mean this. It’s hot in the summer – yes- and there is a slight chance of bad weather during hurricane season. BUT – for the most part – the weather here is gorgeously consistent.  The sunsets and sunrises are also spectacular – and you get to experience them every day.

THE #1 REASON TO RETIRE IN CABO: The people.  The Cabo people are awesome. They’re so friendly. Of course, they are opportunists, at times but aren’t we all? They do love to sell their crafts, services and help – and they welcome the opportunity to work and live in a growing economy – and they fully support and embrace tourism and foreigners living in their town.

Come for a visit – and get in touch with us. We’ll show you around!

Whale Watching In Cabo San Lucas Mexico

It’s the perfect activity in Cabo San Lucas – and it’s a great experience for the entire family. It’s not super expensive, and the rewards are priceless.

What could it be you ask? Whale watching. These majestic creatures, (several species of whale, including sperm whale, humpback and others) migrate through Cabo and make themselves visible during the day from late Winter to early Spring. We really love Cabo Expeditions for a number of reasons, primarily that the tour groups are smaller (around 15 people in a boat) which allows for a more intimate experience.

The guides are highly experienced with the area, and very educated on all the species of sea life. Truly, you might see a pod of dolphin, a group of sea lions, rays, or dolphins – and there’s a ton of photo opportunities.The tours are around two and a half hours, and are quite educational.

The smaller groups, and safety guidelines make for a safe, educational and fun-filled afternoon in Cabo – for the whole family (even little ones, five and up.)

Great Thoughts on Owning Your Home by the Ocean in Mexico – Part I

OCEAN! SUNSETS! SUN RISES!

Coming from a big city with lots of traffic, schedules – and no sunsets or sun rises that you can see that living in Cabo San Lucas Mexico brings a special meaning to waking up in the morning.

The suns comes up slowly popping up out of the ocean. Then, there is something about looking at the ocean that keeps you not wanting to leave. Every time I show a luxury home in Cabo –  we are all mesmerized by the blue water which changes by the winds, tides, sun and moon.

During the winter months of December and January through the first of April the grey whales come down from the north to give birth and the ocean is even more mesmerizing. Whales breaching out of the water so fast you are not sure if you imagined it or not.

Hundred’s of sting rayes flapping on top of the water or dolphins riding the waves of a fishing yacht are just a few sights you will see starting your day…

Stay tuned for more – as we experience Cabo – we will share it with you.

Sammy, known as epic rock-n-roller and ex front-man for Van Halen lives in Cabo and owns and operates Cabo Wabo, one of Cabo’s hottest night spots. (and the same name to world-famous tequila) Red Rocker fans treck the world during this celebration to make at least one even during Cabo’s biggest party.

Sammy Hagar’s Annual Birthday Bash In Cabo San Lucas – Cabo Wabo

Looking for a good time? Has Sammy Hagar – the red rocker – got the party for you!

Once a year, a couple thousand Red Heads, as Sammy Hagar’s fans call themselves, make the annual pilgrimage to Cabo for the festivities. Sammy plays four concerts with a star studded list of special guests. Last year’s included Michael Anthony, Joe Satriani, Chickenfoot’s new drummer Kenny Aronoff, Kenny Chesney, Nickelback’s Chad Kroeger, Emeril Lagasse, Food Network’s Guy Fieri star of “Diners, Drive-ins & Dives”, and Vinnie Paul of Pantera. Not bad, huh?
