Los Cabos - Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico

Tourist and Cruise Towns on the Tip of Baja California

By

The two Cabos--Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo--have long been favorite towns in Mexico for travelers. Fishing was the first attraction for tourists, but the dry, predictable weather was soon discovered by golfers and those who love ocean watersports. Whale watching and desert explorations brought those who enjoy wildlife and nature. Whatever your interests, the Cabo San Lucas area is bound to be an enjoyable port of call on a cruise to the Mexican Riviera.

Cruise ships anchor in the Cabo San Lucas harbor, and passengers to into the port via tender. There are dozens of activities to choose from including harbor tours to the iconic El Arco rock formation, fishing, snorkeling and diving, whale watching, parasailing, kayaking, hiking, and dune buggy riding int he desert. The area is dependent on tourism, so you will also find hundreds of shops and waterfront bars to while away your time in Cabo.
