Cabo San Lucas -- A Playground for Everyone

Overview

Land's End Photo, Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Quote:
Cabo San Lucas is located at the end of the longest and most majestic peninsula in the word. It is identified by the world-famous rock arch formation "El Arco" – a geographic landmark where the Pacific meets the warm water of the Sea of Cortes. It sits at the tip of Land’s End where the sea, sun, and desert join to create an unbelievable landscape of unspoiled beauty. Upon arrival at the Los Cabos International Airport, we were inundated with hoards of timeshare representatives. They offered round-trip fares into town plus a whole lot more, including free dinners, discount on activities, etc. It took a firm "no" before they left us alone. The airport is 26 miles (43km) from Cabo by Carretera Tr...Read More

The Shrimp House

Best Of IgoUgo

Restaurant

Quote:
Cabo San Lucas abounds with many places to eat -- from taco stands to elegant gourmet dining. But if fresh crustaceans are what you crave for, there was no other place but The Shrimp House Restaurant. It specializes in shrimps served either hot or cold boiled in purified water and accompanied with three dipping bowls of simple sauces; cocktail sauce, melted garlic butter and hot spicy Mexican with slices of limón – a local version of a crossed lemon and lime. For a seafood lover such as myself, all I wanted was shrimps and I was indulged with a plateful of delicious plump ones, peel and eat the size of small lobsters. Wow what could be better. Shrimps here were scrumptiously succulent and could not be...Read More

Attraction | "El Squid Roe"

Quote:
The nightlife at Cabo San Lucas pulsates early and continues into the wee hours. Drinking in the streets and on the beach is acceptable. Beach side bars are prolific and very popular, but there is only one place to be if you like frantic socializing and hyperactive dancing in Cabo: Mexico's #1 nightclub "El Squid Roe". El Squid Roe is located in downtown, an icon of the Cabo night scene and a premier destination for party-seeking tourists. It is a three-story dance hall and restaurant of pulsating energy and stand room only the night we were there. The brightly painted walls and ceilings were adorned with humorous signs and colorful neon lights. The mood was energetic, the beat pulsates, the...Read More

The azure blue water around Cabo San Lucas beckons. Water activities are varied, from water skiing to kayaking, to snorkeling or scuba diving. The nutrient-rich warm water of the Sea of Cortez is a marine sanctuary and natural habitat to different species of fish--triggerfish, anglefish, goatfish, parrotfish, and more. At Los Cabos shores there is no shortage of snorkel spots for snorklers delight. There were many snorkel tours to choose from, and we decided on the Surf Rider Adventures suggested by the concierge desk at The Pueblo Bonito Rose. A short taxi ride to the marina took us to the Surf Rider dock, where we began the four-hour snorkeling and sightseeing tour. There was the pre-req...Read More
