Welcome to East Cape
The East Cape - immaculate white-sand beaches and crystal-clear azure waters.
The treasured stretch of land of the East Cape runs for 150 kilometers along the Baja coastline encompassing approximately 750 square miles or 160,000 hectares. A journey through this idyllic landscape will take you from the kitesurfing and fishing mecca of Los Barriles in the north, to the solar community of Zacatitos in the south. Inland the region includes the quaint agricultural towns of Santiago and Miraflores, in addition to the Sierra de La Laguna Biosphere Reserve with its incredible hiking trails, waterfalls and mineral hot springs. Cabo Pulmo National Park, site of a rare hard coral reef, is the jewel in the crown that is the East Cape and the world’s most successful marine reserve.
Known principally for its unspoiled nature, immaculate white-sand beaches and the crystal-clear azure waters of the Sea of Cortez, life on the East Cape is about peaceful days spent by the sea. For the outdoor adventurer at heart there are awe-inspiring snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities, world-class windsurfing and kiteboarding, and endless possibilities to explore the rough dirt roads and desert scenery, all of which make East Cape living an experience unlike any other.
Drawing travelers and investors from around the world, the East Cape offers single family custom estates and homesites at a wide range of price points, all with spectacular ocean and desert views. Beachfront properties are still affordably priced compared to comparable properties in San Jose del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas. The East Cape market is trending hot with a steady increase in real estate sales and a host of up-and-coming builds giving further added value to this unique region and all the reasons to go east. As the all-around experts in the market, our seasoned team of specialists are ready to help make the East Cape a place for you to call home.
On the Move
Most recently, some of Los Cabos’ most notable resorts have begun development on the East Cape. Costa Palmas, the private resort community in La Ribera boasts a 250-slip marina, the first walkable 18-hole golf course in Mexico designed by Robert Trent Jones II, and the first Four Seasons Hotel and Residences in Los Cabos which officially opened October 2019. Upon completion, Costa Palmas will be home to the ultra-luxury hotels Amanvari and Soho House. Nearby, an Alila Hotel and a cutting-edge wellness resort are under development. Homesites and custom homes are also part of the Costa Palmas master plan with spectacular golf course, ocean and marina views.
At the southern end of the East Cape and just 20 minutes from San Jose del Cabo, the Vidanta Grand Luxxe East Cape Resort sits tucked against a volcanic hillside that separates it from the eclectic solar village of Zacatitos. Scheduled to open in 2022, Vidanta East Cape will offer visitors such amenities as a beach club with the largest salt-water swimming pool in the world as its centerpiece and a Greg Norman signature golf course. Condominium and homesites will undoubtedly be on offer as well.
