Pelican Rock, Cabo San Lucas
(4.1/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.
