Taco Tuesday

Hola amigos! #tacotuesday brings you fresh recipes for the summer, as well as amazing photos of Cabo, Enjoy!

If you yearn for the simple pleasures of the “Old Baja,” or maybe you are seeking an antidote to the touristy hustle of Cabo San Lucas, the East Cape is the answer. Time seemingly stands still on this coastal stretch, which swells from the outskirts of San José del Cabo to Los Barriles and the beautiful Bay of Palms.

Fishing has always been the top attraction for visitors to the region, and the East Cape was the site of some of the peninsula’s early fishing resorts in the 1950s. The Sea of Cortez waters rich in fish is still a big draw, specially for annual billfish and big game fish tournaments like Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore.

World-class weather conditions seasonally exist here, for surfing, kite boarding and windsurfing. Shipwrecks and Nine Palms are popular destinations for summer surfers close to Los Cabos; and when strong winter winds “El Norte” blow down the coast, places like La Ventana and Los Barriles become heaven on earth for wind sports enthusiasts. Lord of the Wind, an annual kiteboarding competition in Los Barriles became the North American championship of the sport since January 2016.

Snorkeling and diving are also spectacular in this region, particularly at Cabo Pulmo. This national marine sanctuary is home to numerous species of coral reef and because of its protected status, now boasts one of highest concentration of marine life in the entire Sea of Cortez.
