About Cabo San Lucas

Welcome to Mexico's party town. But, fear not, Cabo still has plenty more tricks up its sleeve to charm visitors seeking daylife, not nightlife. On the southern tip of Mexico's Baja California peninsula, Cabo has a relaxed atmosphere. There are glorious beaches and the sapphire sea, protected by the rugged limestone splendour of sea-arched Land's End. The high energy water sports options are endless: jet-skiing, banana boating, parasailing and kite-surfing abound. But there is also plenty of scope - and reason - for more leisurely snorkelling and diving too. In nearby San Jose del Cabo , there are must-have shopping opportunities  aplenty for paintings, sculpture, jewellery and local handicrafts in the lanes radiating from the main square. Outside the city, culture quickly gives way to the uniquely beautiful Baja desert landscape with its arroyos (creeks), cardón cacti, boojum trees, rare crested caracara birds and burrowing owls. (It may be Mexico but we can't help thinking Hotel California.)
