Living Green on East Cape
Just north (40 minute drive) of San Jose del Cabo airport in Baja California Sur, Mexico, is an area known as “the East Cape” (see map) that has become very popular for tourists, real estate investors and retirees for a good reason…

Sweet Mangos, Jasmine flowering, Passionate cooler ( Fresh Maracuya juice & white wine, chilled ) a choice between a dip in the Sea of Cortez, a waterfall shower, a hot spring soak under the moon light or all of the above… such is the life in the Cape Region of Baja Sur.
With the dry tropical weather of this Baja Sur region your have a broad variety of tropical fruit trees, aroma therapeutic plants, medicinal herbs and a great variety of green leafy vegetables you can grow to make your own edible landscape paradise. Yes sure, you can have your private collection of cacti, agaves and palm trees, but why not make it more interesting and add to it all the other tropical plants you can grow. With the right planning you could maximize the use of your water so you can discover the real taste of tree ripen tropical fruits in your own private paradise.
Snack time? Nothing better than laying down in your hammock to reach for tropical cherries, strawberry guavas or a tree ripen avocado. Later on, a traditional corn tortilla hand made with smoked tuna and a hand full of freshly picked greens from your own organic garden…mmm
Baja California Sur, and more specifically what we call the area of the East Cape Region is an amazing place to live. The unspoiled beauty of the Gold Coast (Sea of Cortez and it’s outstanding beaches) combined with incredible copal and Madrone forests, coral reef, mountains, waterfalls and good people make Baja’s East Cape region a highly desirable place to experience and liveI love to travel and discover new places, but the best part of my travels is when I come back home to my private garden paradise; traveling, keeps my love for the East Cape fresh.
I feel that I know just the right place to be. The East Cape, with the Sea of Cortez, has great swimming beaches, surfing spots, windsurfing areas, diving and snorkeling coral reef sections, and if you are looking for top of the line Resorts and Services, International cuisine restaurants and world class Spa treatments you can also find them here.
As the history of the Cape goes…long before there was a high way to the Cape in Baja, Movie stars used tocome in small private planes to worship the sun in the pristine sandy beaches of the Mexican Gold Coast. The list of rich and famous people and superstars is only on the increase as now they can get world class services, enjoy luxury at its best or build their dream home within very lenient building codes.
