The Sea of CorTez and the Pacific Ocean set the stage for all that is stunning about Cabo San Lucas. This resort city on the tip of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico is known for its mountains, Land’s End rock formations and El Arco, a natural archway in the sea cliffs. You’ve never seen anything quite like this. Cabo is all about the water. Depending on the season, expect to see whales, sea lions and dolphins. Snorkelers and scuba divers reap big rewards, as do deep-sea fishers. There’s plenty of life in the sea.
