Discover the Wonders of Cabo San Lucas

Los Cabos is Mexico's premier tourist destination, boasting some of the world's most luxurious hotels and resorts, exceptional spas, award-winning restaurants, world-class golf courses, and incredible tours, activities and adventures. Whether you're looking for a relaxing beach vacation or an action-packed adventure, Cabo San Lucas has something for everyone. The city's world-class marina, stunning golden sand beaches, famous surfing spots and wildlife make it a must-see destination. The English-language newspaper in Cabo San Lucas, the biweekly Gringo Gazette, has news about tourist activities in Cabo San Lucas, San Jose, Todos Santos, La Paz and Eastern Cape Baja.

According to American authors Henry Edwards and John Ross Browne, the founder of Cabo San Lucas was an Englishman named Thomas Old Tom Ritchie. The city is home to several excellent shopping malls, such as Puerto Paraiso and Luxury Avenue in the marina of Cabo San Lucas. Cabo San Lucas is known for its granitic rock formations in Land's End that form a protective barrier for the bay and signify the point where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet. The Mexican government began investing in infrastructure development in 1974 to turn Cabo San Lucas into an important tourist center in Mexico.

In recent years, there has been a trend towards farm-to-table food, with three of the best examples being Acre, Los Tamarindos and Flora's Field Kitchen located just outside of San Jose del Cabo. Cabo San Lucas is generally referred to simply as Cabo and is one of Mexico's top tourist destinations. From big New Year's Eve parties to eco-friendly trips, weddings at historic destinations, cruises and more, Cabo truly offers something for everyone. Most all-inclusive hotels are located on Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas or along the 20-mile Tourist Corridor that connects you to the sister city of San Jose del Cabo.

Cabo San Lucas is also known for its bustling nightlife with lively bars that stay open until the wee hours of the morning. The city is less rainy than San Jose del Cabo but can experience heavy rains due to hurricanes for long periods. The Marina area is one of the main hubs of activity in Cabo San Lucas and this charming waterfront neighborhood offers a rich collection of hotels, restaurants and more. The city's popularity as a tourist destination has always been directly related to its reputation for world-class sport fishing.

Faith also plays an important role in many of Cabo's annual festivals such as the Traditional Festival of San José del Cabo which is celebrated in honor of the patron saint of Cabo (San Jose) and commemorates the construction of the church in 1730. Cabo San Lucas has a small international airfield which handles air traffic for general aviation flights and air taxi services. There is also the Cabo San Lucas Festival which involves sailing a statue of San Lucas into the bay past the famous Arch in Lands End (which is an excellent place to dive) to ask the saint for another year of prosperity.
