June to August:
Surfers will find great waves in Baja California Sur on a year-round basis, although the scene shifts according to the season. During the winter months, for example, the best top breaks are found on the Pacific Coast, most notably off beaches like Cerritos, San Pedrito and La Pastora. The Sea of Cortés takes center stage during the summer months, when seasonal weather fronts and storms called chubascos send perfect southeast swells towards Los Cabos and its beautiful East Cape. Los Cabos sites like Monuments reach their zenith during the summer, as do East Cape meccas Nine Palms and Shipwrecks. The most famous summer break, however, is Zippers at Playa Costa Azul in San José del Cabo, host of the only WSL sponsored tournament in the area; June’s Los Cabos Open of Surf. Zippers’ middle break and nearby Acapulquito are popular spots for beginners, and lessons are available. To learn more about the local surf scene, drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
July 21: The 14th annual
July 21: The 14th annual East Cape Dorado Shoot Out has been scheduled for July 21, 2018 at the Van Wormer Resorts in Los Barriles. This is the largest fishing tournament in Southern Baja with an average turnout of 130 teams each year. What makes this event so popular is the low entry fee along with a big pay out. This year’s entry fee is $500 per team and the winning team will walk away with a brand new, fully loaded, 2018 4×4 Volkswagen Amarok pickup truck. The tournament also offers optional side jackpots of $200, $300, $500 and $1,000. Last year’s jackpots reached over $80,000 in cash.
The rules are simple, catch the heaviest dorado and you win the truck. There will also be great prizes for 2nd and 3rd place as well as for the largest tuna and largest wahoo caught that day. The beauty of this one day tournament format is that anyone can win. All it takes is a little luck and you can walk away with a brand new truck. After the tournament, Palmas De Cortez will host the award ceremony which is unlike any in Baja. Dinner, Music and over $30,000 in raffle items will be given away.

July 30 - August 4: There
July 30 – August 4: There are two ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) sponsored events held annually in México: the Mexican Open in Acapulco and the Los Cabos Open, which premiered in August 2016 at specially constructed facilities at Delmar International School, just outside of Cabo San Lucas. The first tournament featured 13 of the world’s 50 best players, and was won by hard serving Croatian Ivo Karlović, who defeated Spanish star Feliciano López in the final. The match had historic dimensions, as it featured the oldest finalists in an ATP event since 1977. Last year, American Sam Querrey accomplished the rare Mexican Double, winning both the country’s professional tournaments. In 2018, the Mifel and Cinemex sponsored event is expected to again welcome 28 world-class singles players and 16 doubles specialists, competing for nearly $800,000 in prize money.
