Mexico is undoubtedly one of those magical places that just by knowing them once, we realize that we will never forget them and in this article we will talk about two of my favorite destinations, which although I have loved them very much, I would like to share with you, how fascinating Mexico is.

San Jose and Cabo San Lucas: a trip to Los Cabos, Baja California

The nature of the narrow peninsula of Baja California (Mexico), between the Pacific and the Sea of Cortez, gives us beautiful landscapes, mixing the desert sand with the beach, turquoise water and high mountains. And to enjoy the sea, there is no better destination than Los Cabos, at the southern tip of the peninsula.

Approaching to Los Cabos

San Jose is a perfect place to visit the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula. Los Cabos International Airport offers multiple connections to major Mexican cities and direct flights to the United States and Canada at very affordable prices, which thousands of tourists take advantage of every year to take a few days off from their cold winter months. By the way, in San José the hottest months are from June to October, while the rest of the year, from November to May, the temperatures are more pleasant. Especially in the months of February and March, which are preferred by foreign tourists and therefore the busiest months.

Public transportation in San Jose is acceptable, with frequent buses to Cabo San Lucas along the Corredor Turistico, the coastal road that runs through the area of Los Cabos and its beautiful beaches. There are also tourists who stay more days and prefer to rent their own car. The easiest way is use Car Rental Cabo San Lucas with City Car Rental to explore each of the beaches more calmly.

And what is this about the San Jose estuary or estuary? 

In a region so dry, where the desert dunes end up in beaches, there is a contrast to the existence of this true oasis. It’s surprising that so close to the urban center of San José there is a protected natural area of these characteristics, which before the arrival of the Spanish gave sustenance to groups of indigenous Pericúes. The fresh water of the San José River descends from the mountains of Baja California and here it mixes with the salt water of the Sea of Cortez. The result is fertile land and a rich ecosystem that is home to a wide variety of flora and fauna.

The city of San Jose del Cabo extends inland from its central plaza, about two kilometers from the coast. From there, to the north, there are more popular neighborhoods and areas and to the south, the Hotel Zone, with golf courses and hotel complexes that reach.

Straight to the Caribbean: Playa del Carmen Mexico

There are several alternatives for tours dedicated to living adventures and ecotourism experiences in the framework of a vacation in Playa del Carmen and its surroundings. These tours are recommended for those who like extreme sports, and also to be enjoyed in the company of family and especially the small travelers. In Cancun, a tourist destination located near Playa del Carmen, there is a formidable zip line, recognized as one of the largest in Latin America; in addition, you can develop enjoyable mountain bike tours, cross the jungle in powerful 4X4 vehicles or explore mysterious cenotes diving.

For those who have decided to spend their vacations in tourist destinations such as Playa del Carmen, Cancun and the Riviera Maya, there are several tours designed exclusively for the adventurous and extreme entertainment in the Yucatan Peninsula, also a great option to take into account is to use a transportation from Cancun airport to Playa del Carmen.

As a start, it is convenient to visit the famous ecotourism parks that are located in this area of the Mexican Caribbean. Perhaps the best of them, because of its size and attractions, is Xcaret, a beautiful ecotourism fun center with beautiful coastal landscapes, underground rivers, Mayan archaeological areas, numerous varieties of animals and plants in the region and much more. Other equally exciting recreational areas that can be known as complementary tours to a vacation in Playa del Carmen, are El Garrafon, Xplor, Rio Secreto and Xel-Ha.

It is important to emphasize how pleasant a certain experience of approaching wildlife can be, which can be lived during a trip to Playa del Carmen and nearby places. We refer to the experience of swimming with dolphins. Children from three years old on, are already able to have this valuable experience of eco diversity and wild empathy. There are many places in the region where Playa del Carmen is located that offer the opportunity to swim with dolphins and this is something that should be taken advantage of by all travelers.

Other points of interest, related to adventure tourism and ecotourism in Playa del Carmen, are the ecological reserves and protected areas that are located in the Mexican Caribbean area. Such places are authentic wildlife refuges, where visitors can observe in exciting circumstances, fascinating species such as flamingos, monkeys, crocodiles, turtles and many other animals.
