Villa del Faro is located on the East Cape, north of San Jose del Cabo in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
Due to the hotel’s remote location, we do not have phone lines or reliable cell phone service. Therefore, reservations are taken exclusively online or through email.
Please note: The Google map below provides a good image of our location.
However, the coastal route to Villa del Faro that Google shows is not always in good shape. We will provide a map and directions for the inland route via the small town of Palo Escopeta and we will advise you on road conditions. While the coast road can be a beautiful drive it takes longer from the airport than the inland route. We recommend an SUV for driving on the dirt roads along the East Cape, although four-wheel-drive is not necessary. Driving these roads at night is not recommended.
Driving directions from La Paz are also available.
Villa del Faro is about one hour from San Jose del Cabo International Airport (SJD). On the way, you may encounter traffic lights that are not working. Treat them as a 4-way stop.
From the airport, head south (right) towards San Jose for 2 miles (3km). At the first main traffic light, there is a green road sign with an arrow reading “Santa Catarina.” You will see a construction materials store on the southeast corner. Turn left.
Follow this paved road which ends in about one mile. It will curve to the left past a plastics facility, then to the right. Be mindful of the four speed bumps (or TOPES) in the road while going around the corner to the right. Once the pavement ends, take the first left. The road will be very sandy. You cross a big sandy arroyo, before the road comes to a dead end at a T. Turn left. Follow this road through the town.
Follow this dirt road which will wind back and forth, always staying on what is clearly the most traveled route. When in doubt follow the orange signs that point to Vida Soul.
Five miles (8.4 km.) after leaving Highway 1, you will reach a fork in the road. Straight ahead lies the dump. Do not go there!!!! Bear left towards Palo Escopeta.
Drive 6 miles (9.3 km.), again always taking the route obviously most used. You will now reach the pueblo of Palo Escopeta and be within sight of a basketball court. Veer left towards this court. You are now halfway to VDF. Watch out for pigs, chickens and calves crossing the road as you go through this little village.
Now continue winding down the hills, through the Palo Escopeta ranchos. Watch out for cows on the road along this entire last stretch. Keep going straight for another 4 miles (6.3 km) until you come to a V in the road. Bear right and keep going (5 miles/ 8km) until you reach the Sea of Cortez, and another “T” intersection. You have reached the coast road (Camino Costero), and this spot is called Las Vinoramas. Turn left (north) on the coast road.
Continue north 2 miles (3 km.). Coming down the hill, you will see signs for TOPES, which mean speed bumps in the road. Drive slowly, and after you pass the second one, you will see the Villa del Faro sign on the right, the stone marker, our driveway, and lots of palms. WELCOME.
