In the 1970s the southern tip of the Baja peninsula had only a small fishing village. Occasionally a few surfers like myself would show up, but few tourists. Today there is a large town and major tourist destination, a favorite stop for cruise ships. The rugged cape known as Cabo San Lucas is still just as spectacular with its towering granite cliffs and pounding surf. Take a walk along Lover's Beach on the western side of the narrow cape for views of massive rock formations and thunderous shorebreaks. In calm seas you can kayak around the cape and through the famous arch. This area is also internationally famous for its sports fishing.

An Incredible time in Cabo!

Cabo was one of the best trips I've ever been on. I went with a group of friends in the summer, and it was unforgettable. From the warm water of the beaches to the fantastic night life, you will never find yourself having a dull moment. I went on a banana boat ride and a jet ski down at the beach, and they were both so fun and cheap. You can also go to more lively beaches, where there are restaurant bars all along the sand, with tons of drinks, activities, and music. The clubs and bars at night are always alive with people (I would recommend the Animal Bar,) and the drinks are never short of exotic. I would definitely recommend this, whether you want a relaxing holiday or an exhilarating one.
