Los Cabos, a land of enthralling natural beauty.
Where the cool waters of the Pacific meet the warm Mexican sand. Whether taking a siesta under an umbrella sipping a limonata, or attending a fiesta on the beach, or even just relaxing on your room balcony admiring the crashing waves, this place is most likely going to entrance your soul.
Taken at The Marquis Hotel these pictures exemplify one of the better moments of my life.
We used to sit by the infinity pool every afternoon, under a sun umbrella, sipping cool drinks, watching the waves.
One of the best features of the hotel. The impressive arch framing the Sea of Cortés, also the lobby.
Overlooking a private casita, or small apartment.
Our friends, the seagulls, never failed to visit us during our afternoon tanning session. They were sometimes rewarded with the odd scrap of bread, or potato chip, although hesitantly, as of course, they’re not quite appreciated by the hotel staff.
One thing that’s so beautiful about the Pacific ocean is it’s deep blue colour. Although many people adore the warm green waters of the Caribbean, I feel the Pacific ocean represents the higher octave of this scale of oceanic beauty.
The waves were quite powerful, and it took me a lot to actually go into the water to take this shot. The hotel staff often told stories of how people were carried out into the ocean, because of the ferocious current.
Notice the allure of the water, the warmth of the sun, and the radiance of the earth, all meshing together to form a breathtaking scene. This photo that I took is a personal favourite, as it incorporates so many different elements. The desert is visible in the background, followed by the sandstone building of the luxurious hotel, and finally the golden brown sands being pounded by the waves of deep blue ocean.
My favourite aspect of this photo, are the tiny footprints, running along the boundary, to the far left of the picture. Reason? Because it goes to show how futile and helpless we humans are, in comparison to the immensity of the earth. Also, I quite like the colour scheme. The browns and the blues work marvellously.
One of the most prominent features of Los Cabos are the rows and rows of eroded rocks, such as these. Taming the ocean a little, as well as providing a distinct feature to the plethora of wonders, these rocks add a rugged feel to the otherwise serene and synchronized landscape.
My sandals, heh.
So that concludes my 7 day visit to Los Cabos, Mexico. As you can see, it truly is a breathtaking place filled with natural wonders. The contrast between the barren desert and the blue waters is stark and awe inspiring. What a perfect location for a world class hotel.
