Cabo San Lucas, Mexico – Vacation Packages
The resort town of Cabo San Lucas, named for the slender cape extending eastward from Baja’s southernmost tip, has gradually developed into a tourist hot spot the last forty years. Long before you arrive at Cabo San Lucas, you’ll recognize this destination by its often-photographed rock formations. You’ll want to take your own pictures of the area’s rolling sand dunes and hidden coves. San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas enjoy equal access to the great beaches along the corridor between the two towns, but because the Cabo San Lucas harbor provides shelter for a large sportfishing and recreational fleet, the majority of the Los Cabos visitors center themselves in Cabo San Lucas and the Resort Corridor rather than in San Jose del Cabo.
In spite of all the tourists, Cabo manages to retain something of a small town feel. Besides the full service marina, Cabo San Lucas’s main attractions include an underwater nature preserve only a few minutes’ boat ride from the harbor and the striking Land’s End rock formations at one end of the bay, with a pristine beach right around the corner. Without the tenacity of a few of the town’s original residents who demanded that this land be preserved, hotels and condos would probably fill the town’s entire perimeter. Cabo San Lucas is the only coastal resort in Mexico with a nature preserve within its city limits.
