I have been to Rancho de Costa numerous times since my first visit in 2004. Each time I go, I find myself enjoying it more and more. Rancho is a rare opportunity to experience Mexico for its natural beauty in a truly private setting. I love going to sleep and waking up to the sound of waves gently breaking on the beach which is literally right outside your window. The sunrise at Rancho is strikingly beautiful and motivates me to wake up early every morning I’m there…which is helpful when getting an early start to fishing.


Sport  fishing is the one of the main reasons Americans come down to this part  of Mexico.  If you were to stay in Cabo, it would take at least two  hours of traveling up the coastline  by boat to get to one of the best fishing spots on the Sea of Cortez.   For us at Rancho, it’s a 10-minute Panga ride before the fish start  biting. I’ve had some incredible fishing experiences here that I’ve  never been able to replicate anywhere else (including  an epic, 150 lb marlin catch).


The  staff at Rancho de Costa are very friendly and take pride in hosting  their guests. Johnny does an outstanding job cooking the meals and will  prepare whatever fish you catch  that day.  I have had Marlin, Wahoo, Dorado, Pargo, Yellow Fin Tuna,  and Sea Bass prepared many different ways and they all taste incredible.  Manny (Johnny’s dad) always has a smile on his face.  He does a great  job as a fishing boat captain.  He’s been hunting  the Mexican waters for at least 60 years and knows every inch. It’s  hard not to feel like you’ve made a lifelong friend when you spend the  day fishing with him.


If  fishing isn’t your bag, then maybe lounging around the poolside is.  The  Palapa at Rancho is one of the biggest I’ve ever seen and is  beautifully constructed.  It does an amazing  job of keeping you cool even on the hottest days. It’s hard not to take  a siesta on one of the lounge chairs there when a cool ocean breeze  happens to wander in from the east.


The  golf course surrounding Rancho was designed and built by Tom Doak (of  Pacific Dunes fame in Oregon).  I had the pleasure of playing there many  years ago and found it to be comparable  if not better than Palmilla and Cabo del Sol (especially the 15th hole -  right on the shore). I’m looking forward to playing there again  someday.


Rancho  de Costa is one of my favorite spots in the world.  I travel for a  living and have been to some incredible places, this is by far one of  the best. You will absolutely love  it!
