A world-class travel destination to embrace your dreams with a gorgeous, dramatic coastline stretching from the Sea of Cortez to the Pacific Ocean, Los Cabos is the ultimate seaside escape for your Mexico vacation. At the southernmost tip of the Baja Peninsula, two distinctly different cities bookend into a 20-mile tourist corridor. The cosmopolitan Cabo San Lucas, home of well-known rock formation “El Arco,” and colonial-style San Jose del Cabo. Together, they form a corridor of luxurious resorts; lavish spas; scenic, championship golf courses; and blond beaches.
Once a mission settlement and fishing village, it’s grown into a sophisticated tourist playground. Nearly 2 million people ascend upon Los Cabos every year, where 350 days of sunshine provide an endless summer for surfers, golfers, fishers, divers and hikers who come for year-round water sports and outdoor Cabo activities.
In Los Cabos, you’ll discover your dream paradise, offering something for everyone, from Cabo adventures to tranquility, excellent food to water sports, and world-class sport fishing to unparalleled nightlife. It’s all here in Los Cabos, where you can follow your dreams.
KNOW BEFORE VISITING
Before you set out for lifelong memories on your Los Cabos vacation, here are some helpful tips:
