Los Cabos

If you wish to enjoy two destinations in one, take a trip to Los Cabos! With just an airline ticket and a hotel reservation, you can explore this mountainous desert landscape, see the ocean and discover the best that Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo have to offer:

The Arch

The famous Arch of Cabo San Lucas is a spectacular rock formation that has become the iconic feature of Los Cabos. It is on the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula and should not be missed during your visit. You can travel there by boat from the Marina or El Medano Beach.

El Medano Beach

If you wish to explore the heart of Cabo San Lucas, visit this amazing beach, where you can enjoy calm, crystalline waters, aquatic sports, boat trips to the Arch and snorkeling tours. You’ll also find several bars and restaurants located right by the water.

San Jose del Cabo Art Walk

This event runs every Thursday night between 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. from November to June in the Gallery District, located behind the main square and the church. This has become one of the main attractions for tourists as well as a meeting point for art lovers and curious onlookers. On display you’ll find sculptures, paintings, photographs, crafts, local jewelry and other works of art, creating a wonderful cultural atmosphere that you can enjoy during your vacation in Los Cabos. You’ll also have the chance to savor fine wines and delicious cuisine or listen to live music performances.

It was created to honor the cactus and is set in a full desert environment that is easy to reach on foot or by bicycle. You’ll also find delightful surprises like granite sculptures and pyramids.

Marine Life

This idyllic destination is home to an amazing variety of marine life and scenery, including coral reef, multi-colored fish, giant manta rays, sea turtles, sea lions, hammerhead sharks and underwater sand falls. Diving and snorkeling in Los Cabos is the only way to see the aquatic beauty first hand. The main locations for these activities are the Sea of Cortez, Cabo Pulmo, Pelican Rock and Punta Gorda.

Whale Watching

One of the benefits of visiting Los Cabos is having the opportunity to go whale watching from December to March, when the whales migrate from the Arctic to the warm waters of northern Mexico to give birth to their calves. Magdalena Bay and the San Ignacio Lagoon are the best places to observe these magnificent creatures.
