The southern tip of the Baja Peninsula is where the Gulf of California meets the Pacific. Los Cabos is actually two towns. Cabo San Lucas has a vibrant downtown and nightlife, a marina for fishing and snorkeling excursions, and views of the famous El Arco, an arched rock formation just off the coast. San Jose del Cabo is a sleepy and charming town and home to several luxury resorts and hotels. In between the two is the Corridor, which is a beach resort and golf area. Overall the area is dessert, and you’ll enjoy the beauty of the sparkling blue waters and the majestic mountain backdrop.
With mild weather and whale watching, winter is Cabo’s high season. There’s plenty to do in the area, including golf, sports fishing, seasonal whale watching, zip lining, and even camel rides.

Don’t Miss Outback & Camel Safari. In small groups, you’ll head off-road in Unimog trucks that take you deep into the heart of the Baja Outback on a voyage of discovery and wonder. Enjoy the spectacular views of the ocean and desert from atop a camel, and, in the winter, keep an eye out for whales swimming past offshore.
Best weather is November thru May. Passports are required for travel to Mexico.
