Cabo San Lucas Tourist Information and Tourism
(Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico)
Cabo San Lucas is an up-and-coming tourist resort and often referred to simply as 'Cabo', being sandwiched between San José del Cabo and San Lucas. With beautiful, pristine beaches, marinas and endless water sports, Cabo San Lucas is also extremely appealing for those who like to fish and play golf.
Offering the perfect weekend break, many tourists choose Cabo San Lucas for its exceptional nightlife. Full of bars, clubs and restaurants, the city offers endless beach fun during the day, particularly around the Playa Médano, the Playa Solmar and the Playa del Amor. However, there is still plenty to do when the sun eventually sets, and the city of Cabo San Lucas takes on a completely different, vibrant and exciting character.
The Boulevard Marina is a prominent stretch in Cabo San Lucas and lined with places of interest, along with timeshare sellers, who are often happy to offer tourism advice. However, for the best tourist information, pay a visit to the Cabo San Lucas Tourist Office along the Calle Madero.
