Cabo San Lucas is one of Mexico’s premier coastal resorts, and has a sophisticated but fun-loving atmosphere that visitors will adore.
Located on the coast of Baja California, the resort is surrounded by unspoilt beaches, some of which receive world-class surf. This means that anyone who fancies taking to the waves, whether by surfboard or body-board will be in exactly the right place.
Cabo San Lucas is also a famous sport fishing centre. Rent high performance sport-fishing boats as well as all of the bait and tackle that you need and whizz out to some of the rich fishing grounds just a short boat journey from the resort.
On land, the resort offers plenty of excitement and relaxation. Enjoy a round at one of the area’s fine golf courses, or soak up the rays on the beautiful beaches. And, at night, Cabo San Lucas comes alive with one of the most vibrant nightlife scenes in the west coast.
Hikers will love the rugged coastal landscapes around the town, with beauty spots like “Land’s End” reachable by foot. And fans of water sports will find more than just surfing is popular in the area. Visitors will find plenty of scuba diving schools and boats willing to take them out to see the dazzling coral reefs off the coast of Baja California. There are also chances to see rare whales, and even more sophisticated boat tours which mix the pleasure of the sea with jazz music and fine dining.
Shoppers will never be let down by a trip to Cabo San Lucas either, with plenty of boutiques offering locally crafted jewellery and clothing, as well as ceramics, paintings and foodstuffs.
Best time to visit Cabo San Lucas depends on what visitors are looking for. Party animals and clubbing fans should visit during Spring Break (around April time), but many people will want to avoid the crowds. Peak season is around December, when holidaymakers from the north flock to the warm surroundings of Baja California. So, if you want peace and quiet and a bargain break, try July for more space and relaxation.
To reach the more remote beaches and natural sights, renting a car is the best way to experience Cabo San Lucas, and there are many rental outlets either in town or at the airport. Taxis in town are thought to be on the expensive side, so negotiate a price beforehand if you can.
