Cabo San Lucas is the anchor town on the southern end of the region known as Los Cabos, and this popular resort destination offers plenty of surf, sand, and sports for travelers. With an average of 360 days of sunshine each year, the Cabo San Lucas weather is ideal for fishers hoping to catch marlin, swordfish, roosterfish, and other exotic fish.

Cabo San Lucas activities range from exploring an underwater nature preserve and visiting El Arco, a 200-foot-tall natural rock formation, to golfing on the area's world-class courses. And when the sun goes down, there is still plenty to do in the town, as the local nightlife is a major draw for tourists and locals alike.


Flights to Cabo San Lucas land about 50 minutes away from town at SJD Los Cabos International Airport.
