Many activities, or just relax by the pool

You may be 1.5 hours away from Cabo San Lucas, but there is much to keep you busy at Villa Los Frailes.  If you like to scuba dive, fish, snorkel, swim, wind surf, surf, kayak, hike or comb the beach, Los Frailes and the East Cape of Baja Mexico have a lot to offer.  All of these activities are a short distance away if not right at your doorstep.  If you need help arranging anything, please contact the Salomon, the caretaker.

Great diving in Cabo Pulmo accessible from the villa rental boats

The best diving & snorkeling in Baja

Villa Los Frailes is located adjacent to the Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park.  People come from all over the world to enjoy the diving where you can explore the only living coral reef in Western North America, home to over 800 species of marine animals.

Marine life that are abundant in Cabo Pulmo and Los Frailes include whales, Mobula Rays and Whale Sharks.  Mobula Rays and whales can often be seen jumping in the waters in front of the villa.  Bahia Los Frailes is bursting with life, with fish, rays and whales jumping all day long. 

The Los Frailes sea lion colony, located a five minute boat ride to the north, is accessible using the kayaks and outboard boats that are included with the vacation rental.  There is nothing better than snorkeling in warm water with these marine mamals.

There are three dive shops to choose from in Cabo Pulmo.  Diving can be arranged by contacting the Villa's caretaker.

The snorkeling is outstanding both along the shallow coral reef in nearby Cabo Pulmo and in the very protected cove of beautiful Bahia Los Frailes. This area offers perfect spots for beginners, children and experienced snorkelers alike. Snorkel gear and snorkel tours are available in Cabo Pulmo.  Visit the underwater photo gallery for additional photos and videos.

More about Diving...

Complementary Kayaks

Available to guests are four kayaks. You are welcome to take them out whenever you would like. You'll find kayaking easy going and fun in the gentle protected waters right in front of the house.  The sea lion colony is a short paddle away.

Swim in the Warm Waters

The swimming is safe in the protected cove. Gentle surf and warmer water temperatures make Los Frailes bay an ideal place for swimming.

Unbelievable Fishing in the Sea of Cortez

Baja's East Cape region is famous for its excellent fishing. Seasonally you will find dorado, tuna, wahoo, grouper and marlin.  The villa caretaker, Salomon, can arrange fishing trips through local fishermen with pangas.  Their rates are around $60/person for 4 hours and they provide all the rods, reels, and lures. 

These fishermen are excellent and have a lifetime of experience.  Many of our guests have returned with too many fish to eat and take home.  Not surprising when you can actually watch the fish jump out of the water from the patio. Take a look at our fishing photo album and the seasonal fishing chart.

 

Windsurf in the bay or Find a Good Break

The summer months are the best time for surfing.  Some of the best surfing on the East Cape is a short drive away at 9 Palms.  Any summer morning you may see a caravan of resident Cabo Pulmo surfers heading down the coast to their favorite spots.  If you surf, just hang out in Cabo Pulmo and you'll surely find someone who can point you in the right direction.  Cabo Pulmo also is home to many seasonal wind surfers.  Their high season is the winter months.  Wind surfing is good in this area and north of here is Los Barrilles, a wind surfer's Mecca.

Backcountry hiking in the hills

There is a remarkable hiking trail in nearby Cabo Pulmo.  Its a two-hour trail that loops around Pulmo Mountain called the "Vista Trail".  After the hike, treat yourself to something to eat at one of Cabo Pulmo's three restaurants.

Miles of sandy beach all to yourself

The beach at Los Frailes is a long, wide white sand beach where you can walk for hours without seeing a soul.  For the avid shell collector we can direct to you a beach known for its abundance of beautiful shells. Or take the kids and a picnic and enjoy exploring the remains of an old shipwreck at another nearby beach.
