4 hotspots to visit in Los Cabos, Mexico

With nearly 2 million travelers visiting each year, it’s no small wonder that the destination has plenty of appeal for vacationers. Whether you prefer sunny beaches, hot nightlife, natural beauty, championship golf courses, gourmet restaurants or endless watersports, there’s something for every visitor. However, there are a few “can’t-miss” spots that should be on any Los Cabos vacation agenda. Here are our top picks:

1. The Arch

The soaring natural stone arch (“El Arco”) at Land’s End marks the end of the Baja Peninsula and the meeting spot of the waters of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. This stunning natural landmark is one of Cabo’s most iconic sights. On rare occasions every several years, shifting sands and tides create a temporary beach under the arch allowing visitors to walk beneath the arch. El Arco adorns any number of local souvenirs, from tequila bottles to t-shirts. It’s one of the most well-known natural features of Cabo San Lucas. There are several ways to view the arch up-close. Sunset cruises, water taxis and glass-bottom boats depart the Cabo marina each day, allowing you to view the arch as the boat passes Land’s End. Another way to see El Arco is by taking a standup paddle board or kayaking tour. Before you return, be sure to snap the mandatory selfie with El Arco in the background!


2. The marina

Cabo’s marina is a world-class facility lined with restaurants, nightclubs and shops. Docked in the marina are spectacular luxury yachts, fishing boats, pangas and glass-bottom boats. This is the spot to come to hop on a water tour, whether you prefer a snorkel cruise, dinner cruise or scuba diving trip. Alongside the marina, the Puerto Paraiso Mall is a modern air-conditioned shopping center that even includes a movie theater. Luxury Avenue is the boutique high-end mall along the marina and showcases fashion, jewelry and accessories by some very well-known designers. It’s fun to take a stroll around the marina and spot the catch of the day coming in on the fishing boats.


3. Médano Beach

This is the heart of Cabo’s waterfront where you can people watch while eating and drinking to your heart’s content at one of the cantinas lining the sand. Many spots on Médano are busy and bustling with travelers, activity vendors and strolling peddlers selling souvenirs. It’s a great spot to enjoy the sights of Cabo San Lucas Bay, with sailboats, jet skis and parasails passing by. The waters here are among the very best in the destination for swimming, making it a popular spot for families.


4. San José del Cabo

For a taste of old Mexico, head to San José del Cabo. This traditional town features historic architecture, shops and romantic courtyard eateries. The arts district has developed quite a popular allure, with numerous galleries offering unique works including sculpture, paintings, jewelry, textiles and folk art. The Art Walk takes place each November – April on Thursday evenings when the galleries stay open late. A historic old church anchors the picturesque town square. Alongside San José is the estuary, lush with palm trees and home to many bird species.


These are just a few highlights of Los Cabos, Mexico!
