Commonly known as Cabo, Cabo San Lucas is reputed worldwide as an iconic vacation destination for those looking for luxury amidst spectacular scenery. However, as the centre of the fastest-developing region in Mexico, the city is extremely built-up with a plentiful supply of hotels and resorts. It may be hard to believe that Cabo had humble roots as a simple fishing village with just a few settlers in times of colonisation.
In spite of this, the natural beauty surrounding Cabo is undeniable, best evidenced by the natural rock formation at Land’s End known as El Arco. It is here where the Pacific Ocean meets with the Sea of Cortez in spectacular fashion, close to the idyllic white sands of Playa del Amor. These rich waters host playful dolphins and migrating pods of whales that can be viewed on a multitude of excursions.
Known as the Marlin Capital, Cabo is a long-time favourite for sport fishing and hosts the largest fishing tournament in the world. The city’s world-class Marina is well worth a visit, whilst the long stretch of beach at El Medano is ideal for swimming and water sports – from jet skiing to banana-boating and everything in between.
Although a raucous reputation for nightlife precedes the city, Cabo’s cultural offering of independent art galleries and organic markets should not be overlooked. Here, you have everything within your reach to make your holiday as active or relaxed as you like.
