The resort city of Cabo San Lucas lies at the tip of the 900 mile long Baja Peninsula, with the Sea of Cortez on one side, and the Pacific Ocean on the other. Cabo San Lucas (also known as Los Cabos, or simply Cabo), overlooks El Arco, the amazing natural-rock arch at the peninsula's tip, and is the perfect place to take in the annual migration of whales from the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez to colder more nutrient rich seas to the north.
You'll enjoy exploring the two distinct towns of Los Cabos: Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Both are safe, clean, and offer modern services. English is spoken in hotels, restaurants, and most of the stores. San Jose del Cabo, the quiet side of the Los Cabos corridor, is known for its charming downtown area with 18th-century Spanish architecture, old-fashioned hospitality, and relaxed ambiance. San Jose's signature town square features intimate courtyard cafe, galleries, and boutiques.
