Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, Mexico
One bedroom units have 1 king bed, 1 pull out sofa, a kitchenette, and 2 bathrooms. Maximum occupancy 4, including children over 2.
Club Regina Los Cabos rises above the shoreline where the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean. Every unit faces the ocean and you can enjoy colorful sunsets and sunrises from your terrace. From November through March, it is unusual not to see whales playing in front of the resort. The resort is a mecca for those seeking the best under the Baja sun – from championship golf courses to some of the best sports fishing in the world.
Club Regina Los Cabos offers hotel, club suite, and grand suite rooms, which can sleep up to six guests. Our kitchens feature granite countertops and a state-of-the-art GE appliances package, maple dove-tail dresser drawers, and a craftman-style door. All of our rooms have the best views of the Sea of Cortez found anywhere on the Baja Peninsula. The resort itself offers Members access to certified golf specialists, valet parking, a deli, a Kids' Club, and a massage cabin open every day during regular business hours.
Los Cabos is arguably the most naturally imposing and beautiful of all Mexican balnearios, and as such caters with equal aplomb to both the avid nature lover and the casual tourist. In the winter, you can watch a dozen species of whales breaching just off the coast; they travel to these warm waters during the colder months to birth their calves. When the whales aren't around, visitors must content themselves with long horseback rides down deserted ivory beaches, games of golf on a PGA championship course, and panoramic views of one of the most captivating sunsets on the planet.
Includes transportation to and from the airport.
