Fishing Packages on the Sea of Cortez

For anglers looking for a way to enjoy Baja California's amazing fishery without either camping in the wilderness or bashing through the hustle and bustle of the nearby party town of Cabo San Lucas, Destination:PACIFIC offers the relaxing and sensible alternative: 
Fabulous East Cape on the spectacular Sea of Cortez.

Just 40 miles and a couple hundred years from the San Jose Del Cabo International airport that serves the southern end of Baja, East Cape is a spectacular array of remarkably green open range land, dotted here and there with the palm-thatched palapas and haciendas of the families who inhabit this sparse land.  Within an hour of deplaning, anglers will be within sight of the Sea of Cortez, past the prominent bluff of Los Frailles, and on into East Cape.

The shady, pastel, quiet-calm of the Cape is immediately refreshing at either of our two resorts; the Palmas De Cortez and the Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort.  Also refreshing is that first margarita sipped under the thatched roof of a poolside bar, shaded by palms, citrus and flowering tropical plantings.  Colored concrete pathways wind languorously through lush vegetation between rows bungalows and rooms, many with hammocks suspended between palm trees, beckoning the lazy and the laid-back.

While they are the largest resorts on the East Cape, both the Hotel Buena Vista and the Palmas De Cortez are run more like bed-and-breakfasts, with warm, hospitable service and endless smiles.  The sweeping white-sand beach that front the resorts define much of the 20-odd miles between from Punta Pescadero (FishermanÂ’s Point), to the north, and Punta Colorado, to the south, as it runs along the edge of the Bahia Los Palmas (Bay of Palms). 
Turquoise shore waters drop quickly into fishy-looking, blue-water depths, and the nearshore waters are dotted with scores of moored game fishing boats, usually many of them flying impressive numbers of fish flags.   Bait-fish rippled the surface, and the predatory swoops of larger fish marked their passage.

Rising rather quickly behind the beach are formidable bluffs, beyond which rises a substantial mountain ridge, the Sierra de la Laguna, which rises to nearly 2100 meters at its highest peak, and causes the afternoon sun to set without lingering.

After sumptuous meals in the open and airy oceanfront dining rooms of these fine resorts, guests can wander the beach looking for roosterfish and sierra along the shoreline, and marvel at the private homes lining portions of the coast.  Many of the homes mirrored the stucco, stripped logs and overlapping palm thatched architecture of the people who have lived in the area for thousands of years, albeit with modern conveniences like satellite dishes and multi-stall garages for boats and various desert-related motor vehicles.

The sunrise over the Sea of Cortez is one of nature's true gifts to early rising fishermen.  After a hearty breakfast anglers often enjoy wandering out onto the beach to watch a vintage 4x4 weapons carrier launch the mobile pier that allows game boats to board their clients (the East Cape area lacks a marina).  Nearly every resort has one.

The waters of the East Cape have attracted sport fishermen for the best part of a century.  Exquisite vistas, comfortable accommodations, great food, friendly people and excellent fishing, all at some of the most reasonable prices in the entire Pacific basin, make for a fishing vacation worth going back for.
