Pelican Rock, Cabo San Lucas

4.0
#4 of 6 in Nature in Cabo San Lucas
Head out to Pelican Rock on a scenic tour or for an exciting dive. Despite the small size of the island, it is easy to spot and houses flocks of birds, especially pelicans. The undoubted highlights of the island are the diving and snorkeling sites. You can dive this fairly straighforward but rewarding dive, or instead don your snorkeling gear and view the bright marine life from the surface.

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.
