All About Cabo San Lucas
Situated at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is known for its spectacular coastal rock formations, pristine beaches, spas, and potential for outdoor adventures in the Mexican desert. The area’s most iconic landmark is El Arco, a limestone arch that rises from the water like a doorway between the blinding blues of sky and sea. There’s plenty of action on, and in, the water here, where you can witness dolphins skip through the waves and baby sea turtles crawl across the white sand, while swaying palms frame the shore. And a glamorous resort strip means that there is no shortage of fine-dining restaurants with sweeping sea views, manicured golf courses, and tasteful shops and galleries to fill up any time not spent on the beach.
But there’s more to Cabo than the busy seafront. As the sun sets, the city’s nightlife blooms with lively dance halls, bars, and clubs. In terms of culinary attractions, Cabo is also home to colourful local markets and a myriad of taco stands slinging mouth-watering smoked marlin tacos on warm tortillas.
When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Cabo San Lucas?
Summer is the ideal time to visit the beach in Cabo, as the water temperature is warmer and makes for more comfortable swimming. Since the air temperatures are warm year-round, you can expect mild, sunny weather whenever you book a vacation rental in Cabo San Lucas. The city has a tropical desert climate, meaning the summers bring a high, dryer heat, while winter tends to be more humid. Despite its location on the coast, Cabo San Lucas is lucky to receive relatively little rainfall throughout the year. Even in the peak rain months from August through October, the city does not experience nearly as much rain as other regions of Mexico. It should be noted that some heavy rainfall can occur sporadically during hurricane season, from May through November, but storms are infrequent and usually pass quickly.
What are the top things to do in Cabo San Lucas?
Pelican Rock and the Arch of Cabo San Lucas
Take a boat ride out to the rocky point of the cape. Here you can see the imposing Pelican Rock up close, and peer through the iconic limestone arch at the end of the main formation. You may also catch a glimpse of some sea lions in the distance, lounging on their nature preserve just across from the arch.
Medano and Chileno Beaches
One of the area's most beloved beaches, Chileno Beach is a 15-minute drive away from the city centre, and offers snorkelling and a more laid-back atmosphere than the popular Medano Beach, which is located in the city. While Medano can get a little busy during the summer months, it is a great place to go for a meal after a day of swimming, thanks to its long strip of restaurants.
Cabo San Lucas Marina
There is plenty to see from the marina’s boardwalk, as boats and people alike come and go. The area is home to a number of restaurants, shopping options, and local adventure guides. This makes it an excellent jumping-off point for your next day trip, be it a kayaking voyage or a luxurious yacht ride along the coast.
