Los Cabos is located at the Southern tip of Baja California. Surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, Sea of Cortez and desert terrain with mountains and dry riverbeds, the landscape makes it hard to believe that there are fertile farmland areas. The combination, however, of sunny days (more than 300 per year), and the oasis areas including some waterfalls, act as a natural irrigation system, making Los Cabos a great area for agriculture.
Resulting from the need of people around the world looking for more local, seasonal and sustainable products and restaurant options, organic farms have become an important attraction in Los Cabos and support to local businesses.
