Far from being the remote fishing village of twenty years ago, Cabo San Lucas has stolen the resort scene in Mexico. Located on the same latitude as Hawaii, at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula west of mainland Mexico and close (approximately 1,000 miles south of San Diego) proximity to California, Cabo San Lucas has become the destination for many world travelers. A popular port-of-call, Cabo San Lucas beckons to 400 cruise ships a year. Over one million annual visitors can't be wrong.

With an incredible array of first-class resorts, activities for the entire family, and first-class amenities, Cabo San Lucas has much to offer. "Cabo" with its balmy moderate temperatures nine months out of the year, boasts upscale shopping, five-star restaurants, world-class golf courses, and still maintains the title of the marlin fishing capital of the world. Vacation villas are available for rent by the week or month, as well as affordable accommodations like Bed & Breakfasts and boutique hotels.
