Believe it or not, there was once a time when Cabo San Lucas was nothing more than a placid fishing village. When it came to romantic vacations, Cabo was certainly not the first place anyone would have thought of.
In 2016, the once drab coastal town has blossomed into one of the world?s most exciting spots for celebrity sightings, gorgeous views, sunning, snorkeling, and partying!
Tourists can relax and unwind in any number of Cabo San Lucas luxury resorts and villa rentals and then hit the beach or the town for a good time.
Below are the top five things to do in and around Cabo:
- Rock and Roll at Cabo Wabo
If you?re looking for a party this summer, look no further than Cabo Wabo. This massive complex boasts giant bars and stages where bands often perform. In fact, some of the music industry?s most revered rock and roll legends come here to play shows or just to hang out with the crowd.
- Dance Like No One is Watching at El Squid Roe
You can?t miss it; just look out for the bright red roof, wacky cartoon characters, and the intoxicating neon glow. See your waiter dance shirtless on the table, join a conga line, or just dance and mingle at one of Cabo?s craziest night clubs.
- Find Peace in Nature at El Arco
For something a little more relaxing, check out Cabo?s most famous nature feature. El Arco is just one part of a grand formation called the Three Friars found at the Peninsula?s southern tip, Land?s End. Take in the beauty of the landscape?s majestic rocks and watch out for sea lions!
- Go Whale-Watching Off the Peninsula
Between October and March, the annual migration of the gray whale occurs. During this time, thousands of these majestic creatures travel to various lagoons all around the Peninsula. You can catch a whale-watching tour from a number of places around Cabo, and they usually last about three to four hours.
- Find Romance at Lover?s Beach
One of Cabo San Lucas?s most fabled spots, Lover?s Beach is a strip of sand accessible only by panga (an open, outboard-powered fishing boat).
