Sand cascades in los cabos: a hidden secret in the heart of Cabo San Lucas

Are you looking for your next vacation destination? The world is big and beautiful, and it can seem like work just deciding where to spend your precious vacation time among so many incredible travel destinations. If you want to unwind and enjoy a slower pace in contrast to our everyday fast-paced lives, you're probably looking for a sandy destination with tropical views and sunny weather. As a result, Los Cabos has quickly become a popular tourist destination. People are drawn to Los Cabos because of its geography and climate—beautiful beaches and deserts in a sunny, mild climate ensure an enjoyable trip. When planning your trip to Los Cabos, make sure to include accommodations as well as a fun and exciting itinerary. The place you go to unwind after a day of exploring can make or break your vacation. After 15 years in business, Casa Dorada understands how to provide those visiting Los Cabos with the necessary break from the daily grind to maximize the great memories their trip will create.

Casa Dorada Los Cabos is located on Medano Beach, just a 5-minute walk from downtown Cabo San Lucas. You'll be able to enjoy a lazy day on the sand while also having access to the beach's bars, beach clubs, restaurants, and water activities. The excellent location of Casa Dorada has contributed to its popularity among Los Cabos hotels over the past 15 years. There's no need for time-consuming logistics—just walk out the door, and you'll have access to both the beach and downtown.

If you decide to spend your next vacation on the beach, Los Cabos is an obvious choice. The area has only grown more exciting and equipped to provide visitors with the enjoyable and memorable experience they seek over time—a there's reason so many celebrities are frequently spotted in Los Cabos. Planning your itinerary can be difficult with so many activities and unique sights to choose from. Not to worry, we've got some must-see attractions for every trip to Los Cabos. After booking your stay at Casa Dorada, plan a trip to the unforgettable sand cascades. The sand cascades are a must-see for nature lovers or anyone looking to see something new and incredible. Los Cabos has a unique environment where the desert and the sea meet. The sand cascades are an incredible natural occurrence caused by the friction between the Pacific and North American tectonic plates, combined with the mixing of warm waters from the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean.

You’ll find this natural phenomenon in the Los Cabos Wildlife Protection Area. This expanse of protected nature was founded back in 1973. It stretches roughly 4000 hectares, almost all of which is underwater.

The sand cascades are precisely what they sound like—an underwater cascade of sand. Discovered by a researcher in 1959, the cascades are an incredible natural sight that must be seen with your own eyes to experience its majesty fully. The sand cascades are a hauntingly beautiful sight, mimicking the imagery of a waterfall with how the sand flows ceaselessly like liquid over the ocean rocks. The experience makes a viewer feel almost as if they’ve entered another realm as water becomes the oxygen you float through, and sand becomes the water that pours over cliff edges.

For those wanting to go back home with an unforgettable experience, Casa Dorada has been the favorite choice of travelers for 12 years due to its exceptional location for making a trip to the sand cascades as easy as possible. This rare natural occurrence can only be observed in a few places worldwide, so finding hotels in Los Cabos that put you close to the action is imperative to maximize your sand cascade enjoyment.

To visit this natural wonder, you’ll have to put on your diving suit, as it lies between 80 and 130 feet below the ocean’s surface in the Bay of Cabo San Lucas. This diving site is one of the most popular for the incredible sand cascades and the abundance of beautiful wildlife and underwater sights. Diving in this part of the bay will give you a front-row seat to some of the ocean’s most mesmerizing views; you’ll be able to watch as snappers, angelfish, and other tropical fish swim by you. Even octopuses and seahorses can come out of hiding for a moment to show themselves to a lucky diver. You’ll also be able to appreciate the flora of this underwater landscape, like canyon walls covered with sea fans and sponges. The sand cascades are the nature lover’s top pick for what to do when visiting Los Cabos.

How to plan a unique bachelorette party in Los Cabos

Finding a time and place that works for everyone who wants to attend the Hen Do might be challenging if your friends and family are spread out across the country or the world. Why not gather together in Cabo for a few days of fun and relaxation before the wedding? With this in mind, we have compiled a comprehensive guide on planning the perfect Hen Do, so you can rest easy knowing that we've thought of everything.

The bride's personality should be the primary factor, but don't fret; there are countless possibilities to choose from in Cabo. Activities for a Bachelorette party in Los Cabos include everything you might want or imagine.

​​If she likes outdoor activities, we highly recommend staying where the action is. Numerous water sports are available at Medano beach, including stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, and many others. There are also trips to Santa María beach, where snorkeling and diving are available, departing from Médano (right where Casa Dorada is located!). A daybreak walk-up at “Cerro del Vigía” is the perfect place to obtain those over-the-clouds Instagram photos if the bride is a morning person. The view from this mount is breathtaking.

Getting on a yacht to El Arco de Cabo San Lucas by sunset is also a great idea if you want to get the most incredible pictures with the iconic symbol of Los Cabos. Ask our concierge to show you every option available. If she is more of a spa/wellness type of girl, a full day at Saltwater Spa may be the intelligent choice. With a broad menu of choices, Saltwater Spa has an array of indulgent treatments and therapies to soothe the mind and energize the body. A tip: start with the signature holistic ritual; it will absolutely get you charged for the week. We should not forget about Yoga, an essential player in a healthy lifestyle and an option for that bride that is into wellness. At Casa Dorada, there are Yoga classes every other morning with a Hatha yoga master very well-known in Los Cabos: The Mayan fitness secret “Claudio Cabo”.

But what about spicing it up a bit? Make sure to book a package at your Resort (Casa Dorada is the obvious choice) that includes a bottle of tequila when arriving and (why not?) a two-hour celebration with an open bar of premium drinks by the most famous beach of Cabo.

Do you prefer to celebrate the old-fashioned way? Go to Downtown Cabo (just five minutes away walking from Casa Dorada) and party hard at the vibrant hotspots that the town has to offer. Your reservation package at Casa Dorada will be waiting with a hangover kit to keep you up and ready for everything during your stay.

3 Things you didn't know about day of the dead in los cabos

3 Things you didn't know about day of the dead in los cabos

Unlike in other countries, those who have died in Mexico are remembered with joy rather than sadness, especially on Día de Muertos, the day of the dead that takes place every year on November 02. In fact, this long-standing tradition appears to be more of a fiesta than a serious religious event.

People all over the country create beautiful memorial altars to honor the deceased. These are not, however, the altars you may have seen elsewhere. The idea is to recall the person through his or her favorite foods, beverages, photographs, and so on. On a traditional altar, you'll find tamales, tacos, a bottle of tequila, flowers, candles, and occasionally a hat or cane.

It's most common to make altars for family and friends, but also for famous people like Frida Kahlo, Pancho Villa, or even Queen Elizabeth.

If you've been to Mexico before, we're sure you've heard about this day. We can also bet that you were unaware of the significance and meaning of every detail on the altars.
So here are three fascinating facts about this very special day in Mexico:

1. Bread of the dead.

Yes, we know it doesn't sound appealing, but it is eagerly anticipated by every Mexican: Sweet homemade bread with a slightly flattened spherical shape. At the top, there is a small sphere representing the skull of the dead in the center of four cross-shaped lines known as "shanks." These are supposed to be the arms and legs of the skeleton, or “calaca” as mexicans colloquially call it.


2. Cempasúchil flower as a spiritual guide

This flower will be on every altar as it guides the dead to get to their home from the other side.

3. Paper figures as the representation of the wind

Every altar must have symbols representing the four nature elements: a small recipient with water, fruit to represent mother earth, and fire, represented by candles. The wind is represented by the colorful papers above the altar.

If you are in Cabo this month, in addition to joining our scary Halloween fiesta where kids love trick-or-treating around the pool, you can’t miss our very own Day of the Dead altar at Casa Dorada.
