Travel Destination: Cabo San Lucas

THERE'S SO MUCH MORE TO CABO SAN LUCAS TRAVEL THAN LYING ON THE BEACH WITH A MARGARITA IN HAND, but that’s a big part of it.

It’s all sunshine and happiness in Cabo San Lucas. However, the excellent climate and endless water-based activities are just the beginning of this paradise. In Cabo, the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortes meet at the spot known as Land's End, where the rocky outcroppings form the backdrop to one of Mexico's most splendid natural wonders: El Arco. This rock arch provides visitors with a remarkable welcome.

Cabo San Lucas offers one of Baja's most indulgent areas, with pristine beaches, luxury resorts and fine dining. This visit will surely bring you back to life.

Top Attractions in Cabo San Lucas:

There’s plenty to see and do, but you may find that some highlights from your Cabo San Lucas travel might include:

• Aquatic activities like fishing, snorkeling and surfing
• Whale watching tours
• Golfing
• Enjoying the best of Baja's bounty

From late November to mid-May, conditions are perfect to visit Cabo San Lucas, with sunny days with temperatures around the 80s and cooler nights. Things do tend to heat up in the summer, when temperatures reach the high 90s.

If you’re up for diving, some of the best diving areas are Roca Pelícano, the sea-lion colony off Land’s End, and the reef off Playa Chileno, at Bahía Chileno east of town.

Some good snorkeling can be done right from Playa del Amor, swimming left, toward the marina.

If you prefer to keep things a little less adventurous, the coastline is lined with luxurious resorts complete with infinity edge pools and five star day spas. You don’t even have to leave the resort if you don’t want to! 

Aside from the beautiful resorts and all of their amenities, the central area in Cabo is lined with famous bars and restaurants- so if you should choose to leave, you’ll be in for a wonderful experience as well.

The best way to get around Cabo San Lucas is on foot or by car. Sites are often times clustered within the downtown area, though you can opt for a ride on the scenic water taxi to get from the downtown marina to the best beaches. 

No habla español? No problem. Most workers in Cabo's tourism industry speak English, so you won't need much Spanish to get around. Nevertheless, it’s always helpful and respectful to know some basic Spanish vocabulary.

As always, safe travels, and ¡hasta luego!
