A Beach Break in Cabo

story by: Tom Ricketts

Mexico is home to many world famous attractions including the temples and pyramids of Chichen Itza, the sprawling metropolis of Mexico City, and the lush rainforests of the Yucatan Peninsula. So for the beach resort of Cabo San Lucas to be voted in the top five best attractions in Mexico by TripAdvisor, it must be pretty good!

Usually shortened to Cabo, the town of Cabo San Lucas is a well known beach resort at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula. Its tropical desert climate and array of beaches attract tourists from all over the world, and being just a 2 hour flight from Los Angeles (or 2.5 hours from Houston) makes it a popular spot for celebrities alike.

The main beach in Cabo is Medano Beach. This iconic strip of sand has long been the centre of Cabo’s beach scene and is home to the famous ‘El Arco’, a natural stone arch and Mexico’s own ‘Lands End’. The beach is lined with restaurants and bars perfectly positioned for a spot of people watching or viewing the many yachts and jetskis zipping by all day. But the best views come at sunset as the striking red sun slowly dips behind El ‚ÄčArco into the Pacific Ocean. That’s not the end of the day for Medano Beach though as the restaurants and bars shake off the lazy dinner atmosphere and transform into the city’s famed nightlife sector.

However it’s not all about parties and surrounding Cabo you’ll find many other beaches which are much quieter than Medano. Of particular note is Playa del Amor, or Lovers Beach. Accessed by water taxi, this beach cuts through the rocky southern tip of the peninsula meaning you can be swimming in the Pacific Ocean and the switch to the Gulf of California with just a few short steps.

Whether there for the peace or party, Cabo is an excellent beach and relaxation destination to add on to the end of your US and/or Mexican holiday.
