Cabo San Lucas Travel Guide

As the Los Cabos municipality’s largest community, Cabo San Lucas in Mexico is fast earning itself a reputation as a classy holiday destination. Playing host to a selection of resorts and timeshare complexes which are mainly aimed at attracting package holidaymakers and retirees, visitors can stay in comfort as they soak up the fantastic weather and awesome local scenery. Set on the tip of the Baja California peninsula, the coastline here is impressive.

This large marina and scenic bay area at the confluence of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez is a popular holiday location best known for its warm hospitality, excellent facilities and vibrant evening entertainment scene. Beautiful beaches with soft golden sands and bright blue waters offer lazy sun-soaked days and opportunities to participate in a variety of water sports.

El Medano is the main beach in the area and offers essentials such as parasols, bars and eateries as well as activities such as beach volleyball, snorkeling and kayaking. To escape the crowds, visitors can take a water taxi to Lovers Beach at Land’s End, where they’ll find true tropical beauty and an atmosphere of tranquility.


ATV riding: local tour operators take holidaymakers to prime spots where they can ride beach buggies to their hearts’ content.

Whale watching: tours take visitors to areas off the coast where whales are known to congregate. There’s no guarantee that you’ll see any of these magnificent mammals, but there’s a reasonable chance at the very least.

Golf: lovers will find more than eight courses available in the Cabo San Lucas area. Courses offer lush greenery and pleasant scenery but are known for being on the pricey side.

Marlin fishing: is one of the town’s most popular activities and is enjoyed by seasoned anglers and complete novices alike. Local tour operators provide all the necessary equipment.
