Popular Destinations in Los Cabos
Looking for activities once your private jet arrives in Los Cabos? Los Cabos offers a huge variety of interesting tourist attractions. Some of the most popular ones include:
Arch of Kabul San Lucas: For a perfect photo opportunity, nothing beats this highly touted landmark. A large rock formation juts out into the ocean, under which visitors can travel through the naturally formed arch. Though it sounds simple, the Arch of Kabul San Lucas is quite a sight to behold. Glass bottomed cruise boats (‘pangas’) sail around the waters regularly and some make this a part of their tour. These boats concentrate on not only the fascinating natural surroundings but draw attention to the birds and aquatic life found in these waters.
Cabo Wabo: This is actually a chain of clubs, one of which is located in Cabo San Lucas. Cabo Wabo’s clubs were both founded by Sammy Hagar, the rock musician. Perhaps not coincidentally, Cabo Wabo is also the name of a popular brand of tequila. This may explain the somewhat older crowd and the selection of music played at this location. Rock music is often featured here, which is a contrast to the other clubs, which tend to play the Top 40 hits.
Divorce Beach: Whether appropriate or not, this beach is connected to the Pacific side Lover’s Beach (see next listing). This beach is known for its fabulous sunsets, but that doesn’t stop anyone from soaking up the sun all day long. Swimming, on the other hand, is not suggested due to deceptively dangerous currents.
Lovers Beach: You can only get to this strip of virgin sands via ‘panga’ – again, some of these are glass bottomed offering a superb view of Los Cabos sea life. But despite its limited accessibility, Lovers Beach is truly one of the most fabled spots in Cabo. Whether tourists spend just a few hours or bring a lunch and spend the day, all who enjoy sunbathing and stretching out in salty, wave-washed rocks will love it here.
