“Best Fishing in Baja”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2012

The best fishing resort in Baja. We went to Rancho Leonero in East Cape last month for a 5 day fishing trip because it was highly recommended. It didn't disappoint one bit...and actually exceeded our expectations. The rooms were great....right on the sand. The staff was courteous and professional and the boat captains and crew were outstanding. These guys can find the fish. We caught a marlin and hit our limits on both dorado and yellow fin tuna 2 of the 3 days we fished...and these weren't small fish! I'm definitely going back Rancho Leonero for my next fishing trip and a lot more after that!

I've been goin down to Cabo for about 20 years, the East Cape is Cabo 20 years ago. No upside down tequila shots, bumbling drunks, or MTV pool. I don't actually understand why it is under Cabo for location because it's at least an hour and a half drive and worlds away. Rancho Leonero is on the sea of Cortez and has absolutely stunning scenery. The resort itself is low key (ie no mega resort), rooms clean and nice, and located right on the water the workers are very nice and go outta their way to make sure all is good.
If you're a guy looking to get away and fish withy our buddies, an adventurous family, or someone who needs to get away and enjoy a great margarita then this is the place.
Great knowledgable captains, excellent food, and great Mexican hospitality. Go. Buena suerte

My friends and I look to escape our workaholic worlds a couple times a year. The trip to Los Cabos airport is easy, the Rancho Leonero van picks us up, we arrive at the hotel, and we go into a different state of mind - relaxation. Our only concerns become: when is dinner? (then how did I eat all that?) and how many fish are we going to catch? We used to fish Cabo San Lucas, but too noisy, crowded and dirty. I haven't been back there is 5 years since I discovered the East Cape and Rancho Leonero. The hard part is leaving, ameliorated only by planning the next trip before you get on the plane home.

Just got back from Rancho Leonero! Can't wait to go back. Spent time with my buddies and caught plenty of tuna and rooster fish. I've been coming down to the East Cape fishing every year for 15 years and it's always great. First time staying at Rancho, and it was the best ever! Great hosts, unreal fishing, beautiful accommodations, and BY FAR the best food I've had on the East Cape.....or, for that matter, anywhere in Mexico! The carne asada, the ribs, the guacamole..Great place for a guy's trip, but it's family-friendly and I'm planning on bringing my 9 year old son on the next trip! Great boats and crew. Nice pool and unreal beach just outside my air-conditioned room.Everyone was super friendly. Staff made us feel like family. David

Room Tip: Great room right on the beach. Of course all rooms are about as close to the sand as you could want.

The focus of this small resort is fishing and anyone wishing for a superb angler experience need not look further. The boats, gear and guides are top-notch. Independently owned and managed, a non-Marriot/Sheraton/Hyatt packaged, laundered experience with enough amenities to satisfy the experienced traveler. One hour from airport. Food/beverage services a plus (best French toast in Mexico and ceviche made from your fish superb) and wait staff courteous/helpful. Very clean, no water drinking/shower worries. Beach walks discover free-roaming cattle and wild horses. Good Wifi connects. No tourist junk to buy. Will return.

Super laid back and such a pretty setting. This is an elegant resort but in a very rustic way. If you want the princess plan do not come here. If you want to truly get away from it all, do.

Room Tip: ocean front casitas is the way to go
