Often referred to as "the end of the earth," because of its location at the tip of Baja California, Los Cabos encompasses three distinct areas - each with a flavor of its own: San Jose del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas and the 20-mile corridor in between the two.
More traditional and laid back, San Jose del Cabo retains a Mexican flavor throughout with shady plazas, colonial architecture, charming cobblestone streets and rich art galleries, while the more "energized" Cabo San Lucas is where you'll experience a definitely more American flavor with US fast-food chains, shops and bustling bars dotting the streets.
The once deserted, rugged corridor between the two now boasts posh, all-inclusive resorts, soothing spas and championship golf courses which have helped put Los Cabos on the map of favorite sporting pastimes. A host of water activities beckon such as scuba diving, snorkeling, whale watching, fly boarding, sunset cruises and more. Landlubbers meanwhile can enjoy zip-lining, ATV adventures and even a camel safari!
When the sun sets, bustling bistros, cool cafés and trendy restaurants showcase local as well as international cuisine and entertainment. For night owls the beat goes on till the wee hours in vibrating discos, bars and Blues clubs.
Shoppers will delight in a host of "shop ops" showcasing their wares in designer boutiques, jewelry stores, handicraft shops, and art galleries. Puerto Paraiso Mall in Cabo San Lucas is the place for upscale shops, while Luxury Avenue highlights exclusive designers.
While you're there, be sure to book a cruise out to the iconic Arch, where the Sea of Cortez and Pacific Ocean join forces.
