Destination guide

Pack up your troubles in your old kit Baja

If it's sun, sea and margaritas you want, then you're at the right place. Perched at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is a buzzy beach resort with stacks of Mexican charm. Renowned for its glorious beaches, watersports, and a glittering nightlife, a week or two may not be enough. Get your Mexican beach adventure off to a great start by booking a Cabo San Lucas vacation rental overlooking the ocean. Soak up the atmosphere in San Jose Old Town, play a round of golf, or hit the beach bars—Cabo has something for everyone.

Things to do

Rock the Cabo at Baja's Land's End

Although one of Mexico's most popular beach resorts, Cabo San Lucas also has plenty of natural attractions too. A Cabo San Lucas vacation rental makes a great base for exploring Cabo's extensive history. Wander along Lover's Beach to Land's End, a cluster of rocks jutting out of the sea at the very tip of the peninsula. Take a selfie with El Arco, the Arch of Poseidon, one of the most photographed rocks in the world. Or visit the Museum of Natural History in Cabo San Lucas, a small but interesting collection about the Baja California Sur.

Activities

Life's a beach on the Baja California Peninsula

Beach, beach, and more beach, Cabo San Lucas is a sun worshipper's dream. If you prefer to be in the ocean rather than looking at it, then book scuba diving lessons, as Cabo's underwater world is rich with colorful marine life. Other treats include a romantic stroll along Lover's Beach, play a round of golf on one of the Peninsula's top courses, or pick up a gift in Old Town San Jose. All of this works up a thirst, so after dark kick back with a margarita on the deck of your Cabo San Lucas vacation rental.

Weather

Feeling hot, hot, hot on the Baja Peninsula

The Baja Peninsula's southerly point means Cabo San Lucas has a tropical desert climate with long, steamy hot summers and very little rain. Although a year-round destination, the winter months between November and February attract the wealth of visitors who come in search of winter sun. Temperatures are a balmy 80 degrees and there are few rain showers, so Cabo San Lucas vacation rentals do get snapped up in advance. In the summer, the mercury can reach the high 90s, and there's a strong chance of hurricanes.

Natural features

It's pelican, not pelican't—Cabo's natural marine attractions

Cabo San Lucas is a buzzy beach resort on the very tip of Mexico's Baja Californian peninsula. While marine life is in abundance in this region, for more rugged nature you need to head 60 miles north to the Cabo Pulmo National Park. Stretching across the southeastern flank of the peninsula, the national marine park, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to a variety of bird and marine life. Spot pelicans, gray whales, and sea turtles. It's also one of the top diving destinations in the world, thanks to the beautiful coral reef.
