Camel rides and tours
The virgin desert in Baja California is best explored on the back of a camel! This is an unforgettable and unique experience which you won’t regret. The stunning flora and fauna of the area can be seen in these tours.
El Arco (Lands End)
Undoubtedly the most iconic landmark in the area, El Arco is enduringly popular with tourists. Taking a trip to Lands End is pretty easy and you have quite a few options; you can charter a luxury yacht or water taxi to get you to the rock formation. Or you can take a guided tour.

How about a New Career in Mexico?
July 17, 2015
How would you like to start a new career on the sun soaked shores of Mexico? If you really would then you’ve, coincidentally or deliberately, landed on the right blog post. If you’d like a job in Puerto Vallarta, the Riviera Nayarit, Cancun, Cabo san Lucas, or the Islands of Loreto then this post has the information you need.
Life and the standard of living you can expect in Mexico is good. Though some media outlets and the press show only the negative it’s key to remember that this is non-representative and generally doesn’t concern the coastal expat and tourist areas. The cost of living in Mexico is lower, too, so you can expect to live well for less in the long run.
Starting a New Career in Mexico
The main thing you need to know about starting a new life and career in Mexico is that a plan is essential. Do you want to start a new business, or are you happy to work for someone else? Would you prefer a wage based job, or would you be happy to work on commission (a happy medium between self-employment and traditional employment)? The problem with starting your own business is that you’ll need to speak good Spanish and have a decent amount of money to get you started. Even if this was your end goal you should consider the possibility of working in a commission based role to begin with; this would allow you to improve your Spanish, save some money, and make some connections before going out on a limb!
How to Find a Job?
The current immigration laws in Mexico mean that it’s best to have a job lined up before you get to Mexico. This is another reason why commission based work can be a great way to get your foot in the door; most of the commission based positions open to English speaking foreigners are in timeshare promotion positions where telephone and skype interviews are common.
Villa Group for a New Career in Mexico
The Villa Group offers a huge number of sales opportunities for those who want to start a new life in Mexico. Within this company there is immense scope for growth and promotion, and what’s more your earning will be in your own hands. Sales representatives are among some of the best paid jobs because they tend to be commission based and, as such, there is no real limit on what you can earn. Fill out the online survey at www.dreamsalescareer.com to see if a job with the Villa Group is for you and you’ll get a Skype interview to help you iron out the details.
Why Choose a New Career in Mexico?
Your motives are of course your own, and every applicant is different, but most who wish to move tend to have the same desire to live and work in the sun, near the sea. It is the landscape, and the beauty of Mexico that draw in so many people and it’s easy to see why; living and working in one of the most beautiful places on earth is a desire many share.

When you visit Cabo San Lucas it’s very easy to become overwhelmed by the sheer amount of options available to you, with so many landmarks worth seeing in Cabo! There’s so much to see and do that it can be easy to just sit on the beach all day while deciding what top landmark to visit! But never fear; we have a list of the top landmarks worth seeing in Cabo.
- El Arco (The Arch)
- Cabo san Lucas Marina and Flea Market
- Chileno Beach
- Vitrofusion Glass blowing factory
- Lands End – Finesterra
No vacation to Cabo San Lucas would be complete without at least a flying visit to the geological landmark that is the El Arco rock formation. Sitting at the southernmost point of Cabo San Lucas, this wonder of nature provides shelter and home to many aquatic creatures and is a perfect place to go snorkelling, sea-lion watching, pelican spotting or even whale watching (in the winter time). In short, El Arco is a must see for all who pass through Los Cabos! Don’t let the chance to see the splendour of nature pass you by!
The Cabo san Lucas Marina is undoubtedly a landmark, albeit a man made one, but could also be considered somewhat of an institution! The Marina is more than just a place to dock your yacht (if you’re lucky enough to have one); it’s a place to eat, a place to enjoy the view, a place to find entertainment, and you can even book a water taxi to El Arco! The market at the Marina is filled with artisans of all kinds, selling everything from textiles, clothes, crafts, silver jewellery and even original artwork. The market is a perfect place to find your Cabo san Lucas souvenirs; shopaholics and art lovers alike will not be disappointed by what’s on offer.
Most hotels and resorts in Cabo San Lucas have access to private, secure beaches, but this doesn’t mean that you should avoid visiting Chileno Beach. This beach is one of the most popular public beaches in Cabo (so much so, it has made it to our list of top landmarks worth seeing in Cabo!) and is the perfect place for a day out with friends and family. Here you can jet ski, snorkel, paddle board, or even kayak. The beach is clean, the waters are safe, and the locals are friendly. Why not get out and about; Chileno beach is the perfect place to spend a day in the Mexican sun!
Glass blowing is an old and skilled practice that produces some really stunning pieces of work. At the Vitrofusion factory you can watch the masters at work, true, but you can also learn from them and, thereby, create something to take home. This unique souvenir of Cabo San Lucas can serve as a beautiful reminder of a memorable vacation in the sun!
The southernmost point of Baja California is a truly remarkable site; here at Lands End, nature and man meet the awesome might of the ocean. It is believed that if you were to set off to the south from this point you would not meet land again until you hit Antarctica.
