The Arch of Cabo San Lucas

Baja California is the second-longest peninsula in the world and helps form the Gulf of California, one of the most biologically diverse seas on the planet. And they both terminate in the picturesque Arch of Cabo San Lucas.
Hugged by the Playa del Amor on the gulf side and the Playa del Divorcio on the ocean side, the limestone arch — known locally, and appropriately, as El Arco — was carved over millennia by the same winds and potent tidal forces. 
The arch provides an attractive photo destination for visitors to nearby Cabo San Lucas. It also serves as a popular hangout for sea lions, who congregated at the spot long before Cabo became a whole thing.

Inaccessible by land, those keen to visit this tasteful piece of organic architecture should hail a boat taxi in Cabo San Lucas Marina and say, “Take me to Land’s End, please!” Which is another name for it. It has multiple names, but whichever one you choose, people will know what you’re talking about: that place where the land ends, in an “el arco,” near Cabo San Lucas.

El Art Walk es un evento semanal popular que se celebra todos los jueves por la tarde de 5 a 9 p. M. en Saj Jose del Cabo. Entre los meses de noviembre y junio. 

Este evento fue establecido, promovido y organizado por la Asociación del Distrito de Galería con la esperanza de atraer a los amantes del arte y los turistas fuera de la Plaza de Armas y en nuestras calles llenas de color ubicadas detrás de la iglesia. Con su popularidad creciendo a través de los años, el gobierno local decidió cerrar la calle principal de Obregón para el tráfico de automóviles con el fin de dar cabida a todos los visitantes de nuestro distrito todos los jueves por la noche. 



Disfruta de un paseo nocturno por el Gallery District, visitando las Galerías de Arte, bebiendo vino y cenando en los restaurantes de nuestro vecindario. A menudo, las galerías tendrán eventos especiales como "artistas que asisten" o inauguraciones de nuevas exposiciones. Con la creciente popularidad de Art Walk, el centro de San José en su conjunto bulle los jueves por la noche, pero el corazón, el alma y la sofisticación de este evento semanal se encuentran dentro de las galerías del Gallery District, detrás de la iglesia y plaza principal.

Rosca de Reyes

We consider you part of the Solmar Hotels & Resorts family and that is why we are sharing with you our traditional Rosca de Reyes.

Rosca de Reyes is a traditional Mexican bread which represents a Crown. It is decorated with slices of crystallized or candied coloful fruit resembling jewels, which symbolize all jewels on the Three Kings’ crowns, which represent peace, love and happiness. Mexican families celebrate January 6th eating Rosca de Reyes as it is the last Christmas celebration and usually exchange some gifts to remember how the Three Kings brought baby Jesus extraordinary gifts.

Here in Mexico we celebrate with friend & and the person who finds the baby ( Baby Jesus) in their piece of Rosca, will have a lot of blessings and to share the blessings the lucky person gets to host a celebration serving tamales on Candle-mass Day.

San José Art Walk

San Jose del Cabo Art Walk is a popular weekly event held every Thursday evening from 5-9pm, November through June. The event was established, promoted and organized by the Gallery District Association in the hopes of drawing art lovers and tourists away from the Main Square and into our color-filled back streets located behind the church. With Art Walk’s popularity growing over the years, the local government decided to close the main street of Obregon to automobile traffic every Thursday evening in order to accommodate all of the visitors. Enjoy an evening stroll through the Gallery District, visiting the art galleries, sipping wine and dining in our neighborhood restaurants. Galleries will often feature special events such as “artist in attendance” or openings of new exhibitions. With the ever-growing popularity of Art Walk, downtown San José as a whole is bustling on Thursday evenings. However, the heart, soul and sophistication of this weekly event lies within the borders of the Gallery District and inside the galleries located behind the church and the main square.

The strikingly beautiful Blue Marlin is the largest of all marlins and one of the largest fish in the world. Females, notably larger than males, can reach almost 15 feet in length and weigh more than a thousand pounds. 
The average size is about 10 feet, weighing between 200 and 400 pounds.

The upper half is cobalt blue and the lower silver white. Marlin have a pronounced dorsal fin and an elongated, spear-shaped upper jaw that can be lethal.

Marlin are known for their fierce fighting ability once they strike the hook. They are the holy grail of the sport fishing world and the meat is considered a delicacy.

The Baja Peninsula boasts some of the most exciting snorkeling sites in the world and Cabo San Lucas offers some of the best snorkeling on the peninsula. Santa Maria Bay and Cabo Pulmo are perfect examples. A snorkeling tour is the best way to experience what both sites have to offer. 

The Sea of Cortes is home to abundant marine life that come in all shapes, stripes, and colors. In Los Cabos, snorkelers can book outings with any of several qualified tour companies such as Cabo Adventures or hop aboard a charter boat that also offers snorkeling.In Cabo San Lucas, the best spots are found near Land’s End. You can swim alongside playful sea lions and view more than 40 different types of fish. Activity companies frequent beaches such as Chileno and Santa Maria. Chileno, one of the cleanest beaches in all of Mexico, is especially good for snorkeling because large boats must stay farther out in the water, providing a safer space to explore. Should the crowds get too big for your taste, you can walk a few yards down the beach to a less populated area.
Snorkeling options in San Jose del Cabo are limited. It’s best to plan a trip to the East Cape, which is known for its ideal diving and snorkeling conditions. Cabo Pulmo, on the East Cape, has the only coral reef outside of North America’s Pacific side. Unlike other reefs, it has grown 300 percent since being declared a protected site.

Bisbee's Los Cabos

Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournaments have been taking place in the Los Cabos region of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico for over 30 years. The Bisbee’s are currently producing three tournaments – Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore in Buenavista which takes place each July, and the Los Cabos Offshore Charity Tournament and Black & Blue Marlin Tournament which take place every October in Cabo San Lucas.

Started in 1981 by Bob Bisbee, the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament has grown from six teams with a purse of $10,000 to more than 150 teams with millions of dollars on the line. In 2006 the Black & Blue had its biggest overall cash payout of $4,165,960. This was, and remains, the largest payout in sportfishing history.
In 2000 Bisbee’s expanded to the east side of the Baja California Sur peninsula with the East Cape Offshore Tournament in Buenavista. In addition to marlin, this tournament included dorado and tuna and became so popular that a third event with the same format was started in 2002 – the Los Cabos Offshore Tournament.
Over the years each tournament has developed its own personality with the East Cape Offshore being a laid back “Cabo fishing as it used to be” type of event, the Los Cabos which takes place just days before the Black & Blue and nick-named the “Little Bisbee’s”, is a very social event full of comraderie where friends can meet, swap stories and get in a few days of fishing before the “Big Show”.
The last tournament in the series, Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Tournament, is hard to describe if you’ve never been there. It’s five days of organized chaos full of hard-core excitement. With the beautiful and lively city of Cabo San Lucas as the backdrop, thousands of people crowd the marina walkways to shop, party and watch huge fish being weighed in at the scales in front of the world-famous Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza. The Black & Blue is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never forget, whether you take home memories or millions.
