Explore colorful underwater habitats bustling with aquatic life. You'll be amazed by the exotic variety of marine species found in the Sea of Cortez.
Water-sports lovers have an assortment of activities to pick from besides the diving and fishing: surfing, snorkeling, parasailing, sailing, kayaking, and wave-runner-riding in the gorgeous waters off the coast of Baja California Sur. If you love desert landscapes, the back country of Baja is there for you to explore. If you are fascinated with the natural world, try an eco-friendly nature walk or horseback ride.If you are more of an adrenaline junky, head into the rugged terrain on an off-road vehicle.
The region surrounding Cabo San Lucas is referred to as, "Los Cabos." Lo Cabos has three areas: the bustling downtown of Cabo San Lucas, the panoramic twenty-mile span of sea-side resorts of The Golden Corridor, and the quaint historic charm of San Jose del Cabo. Compared to the never-ending fiesta in Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo allows visitors to take it slow and unwind. Stroll the cobblestone avenues of San Jose and admire the colonial architecture, excellent eateries, and art and craft boutiques.
But unlike San Jose del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas is world-renowned for its raucous nightlife. That's why university students from the United States and Canada descend on Cabo every spring to party at establishments like Squid Roe, Cabo Wabo, and Mambo Café.
