Ultimate Reasons to Visit Quivira Los Cabos

October 13, 2016

Temperate zone dwellers in North America are getting their first taste of fall, which means shorter days and cooler nights. If there’s frost on the pumpkin, summer is officially over.

But in Los Cabos, October signals the start of the best season to visit the tip of the Baja Peninsula, a perpetually sunny place where the desert meets the sea. Autumn marks the start of the nesting season for the endangered sea turtles that call Los Cabos home. Soon hundreds of whales will begin frolicking in Cabo’s calm waters, an ideal nursery where these majestic mammals return every year to give birth to their calves.

There’s more. Fishing enthusiasts are flocking to Los Cabos for the 36th edition of the Bisbee’s Offshore Tournament and Bisbee’s Black & Blue, scheduled for Oct. 14 – 16 and Oct. 18 – 22, respectively. What began as a six-team competition in 1981 with a $10,000 prize has grown to a pair of high profile events with more than 150 teams and millions of dollars in prize money. Known as the “Marlin Capital of the World,” the productive waters around Los Cabos have enabled sport-fishing enthusiasts to earn dozens of world records, including catches in the all-tackle, line-class and fly-fishing categories.

For the ultra-fit, Los Cabos will host two premier competitions on Oct. 30: Ironman and Ironman 70.3. The events, which draw triathletes from around the world, will feature a 2.4-mile swim and a 112-mile cycling leg along the Tourist Corridor followed by a 26.2-mile marathon through the village streets and hotel zone. The race will finish in front of City Hall in San Jose del Cabo. The Ironman 70.3 competition will follow the same route, with athletes completing half the distances.

On the cultural side, the destination is getting ready for lights, camera, action with the star-studded Los Cabos International Film Festival slated to be held Nov. 9 – 13. Showcasing films from Mexico, Canada and the U.S., the festival, celebrating its fifth year, now ranks with Sundance and Cannes as a top film event. This year’s celebrity headliner includes “Jackie,” directed by Pablo Larrain of Chile, with Jackie Onassis Kennedy portrayed by Natalie Portman. In addition, director Matt Ross and actress Annalise Basso of “Captain Fantastic” will attend the festival as special guests.

In addition to these special events, Quivira Los Cabos, the destination’s most beautiful resort complex, has turned a new leaf and offers a special magic of its own this season. Quivira Golf Club, a Jack Nicklaus Signature design that has achieved international acclaim since its debut in 2014, is being tweaked and refined to enhance playability at several key holes. The Quivira Market, a spacious Food Hall that will offer a range of delectable culinary delights, will make its debut at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach in December. Also due in December are The Towers at Pacifica. These deluxe new accommodations will be complemented by world-class, 24-hour butler service. The butlers, trained by the British Butler Institute, see themselves as “artists of service” and are primed to deliver customized service to guests of The Towers. Their ultimate goal? To make every guest experience as extraordinary and unforgettable as Los Cabos itself.
