Luxury Living & World Class Golf
Palmilla is widely recognized as Cabo’s “Grand Dame.” Built-in 1959 by the son of Mexico’s ex-president, the Palmilla Hotel originally could only be reached by private plane or yacht, as there was no road to Cabo until 1974.
However, the Palmilla Hotel quickly developed a taste for celebrities and became a hotspot for Hollywood stars and politicians. Located on a secluded hill on the eastern part of the peninsula, it provides privacy and luxury in strides. Not for nothing, Cindy Crawford and George Clooney, among many other celebrities, built their villas here.
In the nineties, Palmilla was sold to an American businessman and entrepreneur, Don Koll, who marched a colossal expansion and re-design of the resort, setting the standard for luxury living in the region ever since. In addition, its 27-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course played an important role as the community became synonymous with world-class golf.
In addition, Jack Nicklaus designed a golf course in Latin America. The experience was such a massive success that over twenty Jack Nicklaus signature golf courses are now just in Mexico.
Palmilla features ocean and mountainside properties in an extensive collection that includes 2-bedroom condos, estate lots, and private villas. The Sea of Cortez in the background and the desert landscapes of Cabo make for an extraordinary setting that is so hard to replicate, which is one of the main reasons behind Los Cabo’s remarkable rise to prominence in luxury travel and living hotspot.
The villas available at Palmilla are varied in size and style, but for instance, you can easily find a four-bedroom, 14,000-square-foot property with stunning ocean and mountain views and an impressive décor style. Palmilla is luxury at its best, and, in Palmilla, you also happen to have a piece of the history of Cabo at every corner.

The weather in Cabo averages from between 80 to 88 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year. The time to visit depends on what you want to do. For instance, if whale watching is on your list of must-sees, then the best time to visit is in winter. However, the best time to visit is May and June, when winter crowds are gone and before summer storms begin. Another great time to visit is during the fall months when the rains have stopped, and the weather is cooler, but the winter high season has not begun yet. But, in reality, the best time to visit Cabo is when you want to enjoy and live the experience.
Note: Hurricane season runs from May to November. Cabo usually only experiences tropical storms, but some hurricanes do make landfall.
Los Cabos from December to July: Considered the peak season to visit Cabo because of the lower temperatures ranging from 68 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Los Cabos Weather from August to November: August to November are excellent months to visit Los Cabos, but more people are visiting compared to late spring. August to November is the perfect season for fishers if your motivation is a deep-sea fishing experience.
Month by Month
Cabo has warm temperatures all year round, although Cabo San Lucas is hotter than San Jose del Cabo. It is probably safe to say that August is the hottest month, and January is the coolest, and what little rain falls usually falls in August and September. April and May are considered the dry months, and the water temperatures are the warmest from July to November.
Winter: Winter and spring are the most popular travel times for Los Cabos. From December to February, visitors enjoy sunny days and mild temperatures with a high of about 80 degrees Fahrenheit. During this season, the Humpbacks and the Gray Whales visit the area to have their babies, and Whale sharks also migrate to the site.
Spring: Cabo gets a surge of young visitors during spring break in March and April. It is a time for large crowds, so you will see groups of people when visiting restaurants and bars.
Summer: July through September tend to be the quietest months of the year and is an excellent time to visit and avoid crowds. The weather is typically hot, and it is the rainiest season of the year. Temperatures sit in the 90s most afternoons. The chances of a hurricane are small, but it is always a possibility during this season.
Spring and Fall: The shoulder seasons are the best time to visit. These months offer good weather and fewer people. High temperatures are in the upper 80s, with May being the driest month. November also offers excellent weather and the warmest ocean temperatures. The international fishing tournaments and the arrival of the first whales make this month a little busier than prior months but not as active as December.
Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are known as Los Cabos. Together they form a metropolitan area of about 360,000 inhabitants. Cabo is one of Mexico’s top 5 beach paradises and is best known for its marine life, beaches, water sports, international cuisine, and art.
Pioneers along the southernmost coast of the Baja California peninsula were a mix of Pericles, priests, soldiers, and pirates, hardy souls who sailed from faraway lands to seek fortune or serve God. After WWII, American businesspeople saw the Baja California peninsula as an opportunity, and they built the first hotels to cater to the rich and famous. Its paradisiacal location, views, and society made it a hit for global travelers, and it is why Los Cabos continues to have that glamorous chic feel to it.
Today, it is rated as one of the 5 top tourist destinations in Mexico and a haven for beach lovers, scuba divers, and visitors wishing to see incredible marine life.
Here you can find excellent swimming spots, natural rock formations, shopping, culture, and art.
In addition, Cabo now has activities like ATV tours, mountain biking, and zip-lining.
Among the most famous landmarks is the Church of San Lucas, a 300-year-old Spanish mission-style church, and other buildings that date to its founding and colonial past.
There are many options for spending the day at the beach, enjoying the cuisine, and swimming and snorkeling. Beach clubs offer the ideal place to go for that fun-filled beach day. The best clubs to visit are Omnia Dayclub, Sur Beach House – Bahia Hotel, Taboo Beach Club at the Me Cabo Hotel, and the Breathless in Cabo San Lucas.
There is no question that Los Cabos offers a breathless coastline, but many beaches are not suitable for swimming due to the strong waves and powerful undercurrents. But that doesn’t mean you can’t spend quality time in the water. Tucked away along the coastline are little bays with water mild enough for every type of swimmer, even the little ones.
Visitors can spend a day at any five swimmable beaches located just a short distance away.
Medano Beach is one of the main swimming beaches of San Lucas. Here you will find restaurants, lounger rentals, and everything you need to spend a delicious day at the beach.
Chileno beach is a quieter beach that sits in the hotel zone and is a favorite with the local community. The bay at this beach is calm and an excellent option for snorkelers or swimming. It is considered one of the best snorkeling places you can reach by car, bus, or cab.
Palmilla Beach is a quiet spot in San Jose but a bit out of the way for travelers without a car. Even so, its crescent shape shore makes it worth the trip. Pack a picnic, some beach gear, and snorkeling gear when you visit this place.
Locals consider these beaches to be the best in Cabo. These beaches are outside the Marina and lack the vendors and crowds of other beaches. They are dotted with natural landmarks, massive boulders, which make the perfect shady place to sit. The water in these beaches is fantastic, clear, with mild waves, and ideal for wading or swimming.
Santa Maria Beach
Due to the abundance of coral reefs, Santa Maria is probably one of the most famous snorkeling spots. However, it is a place where you will encounter lots of people, and you may want to choose a different beach if all you want to do is swim.
