Los Cabos, Mexico
Whether you’re looking for adventure, fun with friends or family, or the perfect romantic vacation with the love of your life, Los Cabos is the perfect getaway.
Beautifully scenic Los Cabos offers desert, beachfront, and mountain terrain. The Los Cabos climate is warm, dry and sunny. The Pacific Ocean flanks the peninsula where this former fishing village sits on the west side. The Gulf of California, also called the Sea of Cortés, borders it on the east.
The Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortés collide at Baja’s southern tip, where the rock formation called El Arco (The Arch), rises from the sea.
The surf on the Pacific side can be very rough, while the Sea of Cortés is calm, though strong currents can exist here too. Just be sure you’re at a swimmable beach before you dive in.
There is something for everyone in Los Cabos: kayaking, snorkeling, golf, horseback riding, deep sea fishing, scuba diving, luxury all-inclusive resorts, yachting and night life near the marina.
