One of Mexico’s top tourist destinations, and known to locals as “Cabo,” the city of Cabo San Lucas lies at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. Together with its quieter sister city of San Jose del Cabo, these two comprise the region known as “Los Cabos”.
The area along the coast between these two cities features many beach resorts, and visitors are drawn to some of the best snorkeling in the region, spectacular sunsets, delicious regional Mexican food and lots tequila. Cabo San Lucas is also a popular cruise ship port, and the nutrient rich waters along the seashore is home to a great variety of colorful sea life, amazing rock formations and impressive coral reefs, allowing for quintessential Cabo San Lucas diving encounters.
In addition the city notoriously hosts the world’s highest paying marlin tournament with a jackpot of more than $3 million dollars. In the winter months of December through April, whale watching becomes a predominantly popular activity, as these majestic animals arrive to the coast to raise their offspring in the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez.
If you are looking for resort living that promises luxurious relaxation combined with multiple activity options, then Cabo San Lucas is the perfect gateway destination to a world of new vacation opportunities.
