Cabo San Lucas

4.3
Swim with Dolphins · Fishing Charters & Tours · Geologic Formations
One of Mexico's premier vacation spots, Cabo San Lucas lures pleasure seekers with its trendy restaurant scene, raucous nightlife, and, of course, picture-perfect beaches. Life is lived outdoors on this part of Mexican coastline, so most Cabo San Lucas vacations involve swimming, playing golf, fishing, sailing, surfing, scuba diving, and strolling along the pedestrianized seafront walkway flanked by shops, bars, and hotels. Many cruise ships drop anchor in the town's harbor, bringing visitors from around the world, while private yachts add a touch of glamour and glitz to what often seems like an overdeveloped coastline. Tourists wishing to escape the crowds during their Can San Lucas holiday frequently choose whale-watching excursions and ATV off-road adventures through the nearby sand dunes. Take stress off the schedule by using our Mexico road trip app.

Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
