Located just south of Los Barriles, Buenavista gets its name from its lovely vantages of Bahia Las Palmas, the Bay of Palms. Herb Tansey helped put Buenavista on the map when he opened Rancho Buena Vista - one of the region's first fly-in fishing resorts - in 1952. Since then, the town has attracted a steady stream of visitors, thanks to its picturesque surroundings, superb fishing and kayaking, and convenient access to premier surf and dive sites along the East Cape. It's also not far from hiking and camping in the Sierra de la Laguna, the mountain range that forms the spine of Baja California Sur. Bisbee's, famous for its Black and Blue marlin fishing tournament 65 miles to the south in Cabo San Lucas, has been hosting a similar event - called the East Cape Offshore - at Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort since 2000.
- East Cape's Best Attractions: "Hotel Buena Vista Beach Resort is the town's premier accommodation option, as well as the de facto activities center."
- Best for East Cape's Best Attractions Because: Buenavista is one of the most picturesque communities on the East Cape.
