El Arco de Cabo San Lucas (Lands End), Cabo San Lucas

4.7
#1 of 296 in Nature in Mexico
Watch as the waves crash against El Arco de Cabo San Lucas (Lands End), an arched rock formation at the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. Created by erosion over millennia, the distinctive rock formation serves as a meeting point for local sea lion colonies; keep your eyes peeled for the large creatures as you admire the rocks. Don't be tempted to go in the water--strong currents and rocky surroundings make the area unsuitable for swimming. You can access the beach near the rock formation by water taxi from the nearby city.

    Cabo is a party place. Continue the fun in the early part of the day cruising around land's end. Some boats have open bars too.  more »

    My spouse and I pay a tour to the Luxury Sunset sailing and nobody from the company Cabo adventures us notice of cancellation of the tour and we were waiting for 45 minutes in the lobby of the Hotel and without option to make another tour.

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.
