Marquis Los Cabos is an oceanside vacation resort and spa located in Los Cabos, Mexico, on the southeast side of the California Peninsula. It is also known as Baja California Sur and is surrounded by the Pacific Ocean. Marquis Los Cabos Resort fronts the Sea of Cortes. Please note that each of the 235 rooms in this exclusive luxury resort is for adults only.

Primarily because guests are paying the price for peace, quiet and privacy, and children don’t add to the feeling of serenity. And since it is touted as ideal for honeymooners, children may be exposed to a more adult atmosphere than most parents would care to explain.

Sunny, tropical Los Cabos, Mexico, is lovely year-round. The coolest air temperatures are found between December and March, ranging anywhere from 55 degrees to 78 degrees on average. Moderate temperatures prevail in April and May, and again in November when temperatures can range from 75 degrees to 79 degrees.

June through October is considered the warmest part of the year and can see lows of 82 degrees up to 86 degrees. As you can see, the temperatures are agreeable year-round, but depending on whether you want to take in more adventure or relax and do some serious sun-worshipping, you may want to go when the temperatures best suit your planned activities.

The sea temperatures are warm enough to enjoy a swim year-round. January through June, the water averages a lovely 75 degrees. If you prefer your water warm, it is a relaxing 91 degrees to 95 degrees for the remainder of the year, and that is actually warmer than the air temperature.

If you plan on hiking, rainfall may contradict those plans a bit. The warmer weather falls during June and July, but so does the greatest rainfall – on average, 22 days of the month. August and September may give you a better shot at a dry day, as they have between 12 to 15 days of rain on average.

October still has temperatures warm enough to bask on the beach with only around eight to 10 rainy days. And with nine hours of sunlight in the cooler months and 12 full hours of sun in the warmer months, there is no shortage of sunshine in this amazing place.

Beaches, Swimming and Water Sports

Each of the beaches around Los Cabos is more beautiful and picturesque than the last. Sapphire blue skies are reflected on the surface of the water – even the waves are glassy blue with snow-white crests – A truly striking sight.

However, due to the massive size of the powerful waves and a strong undertow current, swimming is dangerous and actually not allowed at Los Cabos. You can certainly take a walk along the beach any time, even strolling to the Playa Cabo Real beach next door where it is safe to swim. And there is no law against sunning, so you can certainly take a deeper tan home with you to show off to your friends.

Marquis Los Cabos has two infinity pools that appear to run seamlessly into the Sea of Cortes. In Reality, there is a lovely stretch of sand separating them. Each of the two crescent shaped pools has a row of built-in seats along the beach’s edge where you can relax, literally at the ocean’s edge.

From this vantage point, you are likely to see whales as they swim by, dolphins playing and flying rays in this exotic seashore. You can also daydream in one of the cozy hammocks or comfortable lounge chairs shaded by umbrellas along the pool’s edge.

A Luxury Resort and Spa

Marquis Los Cabos has it all, and your per-day charge includes it all; from transport to and from the airport to valet parking, from food to fun, from salon to spa, and from sweet dreams in your luxury bed to ocean side daydreaming. Whether you are traveling for business, a destination wedding, or to escape the rigors of the work world, serenity and luxury await at the Marquis Los Cabos Resort and Spa.
