Located at the southernmost tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, Los Cabos is made up of the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo connected by a 20-mile corridor. The peninsula reaches into the Sea of Cortez and the deep waters of the Pacific Ocean making this a perfect getaway.
Rising from the Sea of Cortez, El Arco is the natural symbol of Los Cabos. See it from every point of view – on land, by water or in the air.
There are 22 swimmable Blue Flag beaches in Los Cabos, including Medano, El Chileno, Palmilla and Santa María Bay.

Join the surfers or simply watch them in their element at Playa Acapulquito. Known as “Old Man’s Break,” this reef break is at its best in summer with clear waters and an easy paddle out. Rock climbing and nearby snorkeling also draw adventure-seekers from around the globe.
