There are a lot of activities that travelers visit Los Cabos and the surrounding region to enjoy, many of which involve boating in some form. The average tourist sticks to the Los Cabos area, content with the boat tours and charters offered at the marinas.
But a region near Los Cabos called the East Cape is the world’s next luxury yachting hotspot, making a name for itself as a place for the true yachting aficionados.
The East Cape Location
Beginning a few miles east of San Jose del Cabo, the East Cape extends to the north as far as places like Los Barriles and Buena Vista.
The north end of the East Cape region is only about an hour from Los Cabos International Airport.
Of course, the location of the East Cape along the Sea of Cortez makes it the perfect destination for yachting enthusiasts looking for a less crowded, more laid-back location.
