Cabo San Lucas, commonly called Cabo, is a city at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur.
Cabo is known for its sandy beaches, world-class scuba diving locations, the distinctive sea arch El Arco de Cabo San Lucas (shown below) and abundant marine life.
The Los Cabos Corridor has become a heavily-trafficked holiday destination with numerous resorts and timeshares, and Cabo's beautiful weather offers a great vacation destination.
El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, or Lands End, Cabo San Lucas is a distinctive rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas, which is itself the extreme southern end of Mexico's Baja California Sur Peninsula. It is here that the Pacific Ocean meets the Gulf of California (or Sea of Cortez). This spot is a popular gathering area for sea lions.
