August - May: The whale
August – May: The whale shark is the largest fish in the world, reaching up to 40 feet in length, and weighing as much as 47,000 pounds. There is no risk in swimming with these gentle giants, however, since they subsist solely on plankton. Baja California Sur’s capital city of La Paz is the premier place to indulge in this interactive and unforgettable wildlife adventure, with the majority of swim tours occurring near the tip of the El Mogote peninsula. Complimentary round-trip transportation from Los Cabos is provided by several respected activities providers. To learn more contact us by clicking the LEARN MORE button below
February 28 - March 5: There
February 28 – March 5: There are two cities that host notable Carnaval celebrations on the Baja California peninsula: Ensenada and La Paz. Carnaval, for the uninitiated, is the Catholic pre-Lenten celebration that captivates Rio de Janeiro and New Orleans each year, although in the latter city it is better known as Mardi Gras. In La Paz, the uninhibited six-day farewell to debauchery is centered on the capital city’s malecón, and includes voluminous food and drink, colorful parades and costumes, plenty of live music from high-profile performers, and the coronation of a festival king and queen. This year’s theme is Grandes Navegantes (Great Navigators). To discover more, click the LEARN MORE button.

The whole month of March: March is the month when many North American college students head south to warm weather vacation destinations to participate in that seasonal rite of passage known as Spring Break. Baja California Sur’s southernmost resort city, Cabo San Lucas, is a prime beneficiary of this mass migration, welcoming hordes of bikini and board shorts clad collegians annually for mid-semester fun in the sun. Mango Deck on Médano Beach is the unofficial center of Spring Break action in Cabo San Lucas, although the scene typically shifts to downtown nightclubs after dark.

March 8 – 11, 13 – 16: For nearly 20 years, Baja Sur’s beautiful East Cape has welcomed visitors for fun-filled theater twists on cultural classics…often but not always Shakespeare. This year’s selection, The Sea Princesa and the Frijole, is based on the classic Broadway hit, Once Upon a Mattress; the show that launched comedienne Carole Burnett’s career back in 1959. The highly anticipated production will be held during consecutive weeks at Hotel Buenavista Beach Resort.

March 14 - 19: During the
March 14 – 19: During the Spanish colonial period, many towns in Baja California and elsewhere in México and Latin America were named according to the Catholic calendar. San José del Cabo’s first Spanish name, for instance, was San Bernabé, so named by Sebastián Vizcaíno when he landed there on June 11, 1602, during the traditional Catholic feast day for Saint Barnabas. San Bernabé replaced Añuití, the name given to the place by the indigenous Pericúes, and was itself later replaced by San José del Cabo, the name of the Jesuit mission that opened in 1730. The city’s fiestas tradicionales, or fiestas patronales (as the patron saint festivals are typically known in Spanish), encompass nearly a week of celebrations, and include parades, live music, regional food and drinks (the ceviche preparation contest is an annual highlight), plus the coronation of an event king and queen. The festivities culminate on March 19, the official feast day of Saint Joseph. For more on San José del Cabo’s Patron Saint Festival, contact us at email@example.com.
March 17: Baja Sur’s beautiful East
March 17: Baja Sur’s beautiful East Cape stretches some 7o miles in a belly-shaped arc from San José del Cabo to the Bay of Palms. The coastal region is best known for its pristine beaches, abundant marine life and off-the-grid communities, but is also home to a number of talented artists and crafts makers. The primary showcase for this community creativity has, since 1994, been the annual East Cape Arts Festival, the 2019 edition of which takes place March 17 at the Hotel Palmas de Cortez in Los Barriles. Food, drinks, live music and dance groups will also be spotlighted. For additional information, click the LEARN MORE button.

March 24: El Triunfo and San
March 24: El Triunfo and San Antonio, two mountain hamlets about 35 and 40 miles south of La Paz, respectively, are the two oldest secular communities in the Californias (yes, that includes the U.S. state of California). Both were built on gold and silver mining, and in fact during the latter part of the 19th century El Triunfo was the wealthiest community in Baja California, with reportedly the highest concentration of pianos per capita in México. It was the first Baja town to boast luxuries like electricity and telephones, and its largest smokestack, dubbed Ramona, was built by none other than Gustave Eiffel. Today, the populations of El Triunfo and San Antonio number in the hundreds, but both retain their old-fashioned charm and offer abundant historical artifacts and attractions. The best time to visit the former is during its annual Festival Artesanal, when vendors line the streets hawking traditional food, art and clothing, and colorfully costumed men and women waltz around the town square.
