Buena Vista Beach Resort - East Cape

Only 35 miles from Los Cabos International Airport an area known as the East Cape sits on the edge of the glorious blue Sea of Cortez, just teaming with fish and coaxing you to her beaches with fly rods in hand. This area known as the East Cape is a mecca for fishermen but especially fly anglers as there are numerous places along the beaches in which to cast a fly rod into the beautiful blue water and catch anything from roosterfish to rock fish species.

The Sea of Cortez with its near-perfect weather and sea conditions, endless miles of white sandy beaches and dramatic scenery is a paradise for sport fishermen and anglers alike, harboring the most bountiful sea life on the planet. With more than 850 species of identified fish, it ranks as one of the world's most productive fishing areas. Black, blue and striped marlin, sailfish, tuna, dorado, jack crevalle, pargo, pompano, yellowtail, roosterfish, sierra and wahoo are all found in East Cape waters.

Situated on the beach looking out toward the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of California) you are only a few steps from some of the most exciting fly-fishing available anywhere in the Baja peninsula. Even before breakfast you can walk the beach and find where the hot springs beneath the hotel seep into the sea. The warm water attracts the baitfish, which in turn attracts different species that will take a fly, like sierra mackerel, Pacific bonito, ladyfish, jack crevalle and roosterfish.

The hotel offers a variety of accommodations with some rooms surrounding the swimming pool with swim up bar. Being situated on top of a local hot spring, the resort has a natural hot spring Jacuzzi as well as spa facilities for your pampering.

Of course there are other activities for non-fishing guests, such as horseback riding, kayaking, snorkeling, ATV rentals, etc. There is no shortage of things to keep families with children occupied. There are also various tours available from whale watching to scuba diving, bird watching etc.

The resort has it’s own restaurant and bar for your convenience. Meals are served either in the dining room or outside on the oceanfront terrace.

Since the location of the East Cape is so close to the opening of the Sea of Cortez from the Pacific Ocean, it is a great place to go for early season fishing for pelagic gamefish species like dorado, sailfish and marlin. The fish enter the Sea of Cortez in the spring months following the baitfish and continue to work their way north towards areas like Loreto, which are in peak season by July. Since it’s not horribly hot in March, April and May, this East Cape location is a great place to go fishing or take Spring break. Then late season such as September and October, the fish are heading right back past the resort on their way back to the ocean so again it’s a great destination when it’s not too hot. Of course there is great fishing all summer long.
