Between San Lucas and San Jose, the 20-mile Corridor at Land’s End is defined by the azure blue and turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortés, rugged cliffs, quiet coves teeming with marine life, desert vistas and mountains that all come together with a wash of vibrant colors that are unmistakably Cabo’s. Today, other than the natural flora and fauna, the Corridor’s population consists of luxury hotels and resort properties, as well as a variety of premier, world-class golf courses designed by the legends of the game.
While locals gave the 20-mile stretch between San José and San Lucas its name, the Corridor’s humble beginnings gave no warning of its current opulence. Palmilla, Cabo Real and Cabo Del Sol are world-class resorts that have made the Corridor famous for golf and luxury. But it was more than 40 years ago when luxury on the beaches began at the Hotel Cabo San Lucas in Chileno Bay and the Twin Dolphin Hotel at Santa María Bay. Today these unique properties are being developed into modern-day resorts befitting their spectacular environments. A private marina and yacht club will be featured at Chileno Bay, along with its two Tom Fazio-designed golf courses. At Santa María Bay, the developers have included 36 holes of golf, which will undoubtedly put Los Cabos at the top of the list of any golfer’s dream vacation.
The two newest communities within Palmilla, developed by Del Mar Developments, include Oasis Palmilla and Espíritu Del Mar. Oasis Palmilla is the first gated community in Los Cabos to offer expansive home sites of approximately one acre or larger. The home sites are situated on a 240-acre slope overlooking a Jack Nicklaus 27-hole championship golf course. Espíritu Del Mar, a private mountain escape with beach access and sweeping ocean views, boasts a family fitness and activities complex, 28 acres of open space, 3.3 miles of walking trails and a hilltop meditation sanctuary.
