Baja California Sur’s beautiful East Cape describes an approximately 70-mile coastal arc from San José del Cabo to Los Barriles. The region is a popular destination for those seeking the “Old Baja:” meaning dirt roads, rustic or off-the-grid beachfront accommodations, pristine beaches, and world-class conditions for fishing and diving.
Fishing was the original East Cape tourist attraction, and the region remains popular among big-game anglers. Punta Colorada is known as the “roosterfish capital of the world,” and Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore tournament is a summer tradition in Buenavista. The marine sanctuary at Cabo Pulmo, meanwhile, is a must-see for snorkelers and divers. Not only does it boast the highest concentration of fish in the Sea of Cortés, but also one of the oldest and largest living coral reefs in the Western Hemisphere. Windsports like kiteboarding are world-class during the winter months.
