Make sure you don’t get to the end of your trip without having made a visit to the El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, or ‘Land’s’ End’ as it translates in English. The arch is located at the Southern most point of the Baja Peninsula and is a most spectacular natural feature.
Millennia of erosion have resulted in a triumphant looking arch that sits out proudly in the sea. Be on the lookout for seals and sea lions which are also common in the area. The arch has become a local symbol of Cabo and is one of its most photographed sites, so remember to bring your camera!
Take a day to visit and explore the beautiful beaches surrounding Cabo. With the Pacific Ocean to the West and Sea of Cortez to the East, the Cabo peninsula has a variety of beaches waiting for discovery. Visitors can opt to enjoy the secluded, pristine beaches of the Pacific along the Western coast.
Along the corridor, you can head up the Eastern coast toward San Jose del Cabo for beaches offering a wealth of activities such as diving, snorkeling and surfing.
The whole Southern Baja Peninsula is littered with traditional villages and towns. One of these villages called Santiago, should be on every visitor’s ‘must see’ list and is located about an hour’s drive from San Jose Del Cabo. Close to Santiago are some natural hot springs.
Just reaching the springs is an adventure in itself that involves a hike through some unique rock and boulder formations.
