Playa el Estero or Estuary Beach
San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México
Beginning at the East end of the Playa Hotelera (Hotel Beach) in San Jose del Cabo, one will find the famed estuary of San Jose del Cabo. The freshwater lagoon has over three hundred and fifty species of wildlife and lush vegetation. Fed by underground aquifers, the river and lagoon are one of the few oases in the otherwise nearly desolate lower Baja peninsula. For a little exploring, one may still rent a variety of concessions including horses, mountain bikes, kayaks or ATVs adjacent to the Presidente Inter-continental Los Cabos Resort, which borders the estuary. Kayaking in the lagoon is an option depending on the water level.
