Cabo San Lucas

Cabo Airport

Enjoy a quick flight from the West Coast to Cabo San Lucas and stay in one of its many all-inclusive resorts. Cabo is perfect for a quick family getaway, a romantic vacation, or a group of friends traveling together. Take a stroll through town enjoying the local scenery, seafood restaurants and nightclubs. Shop for that fine bottle of local tequila to take back home. Travel to nearby Todos Santos with its trendy beach vibe and art galleries or San Jose del Cabo to experience a more quaint, traditional town and shop for local artisan's jewelry and folk art. Take a short boat cruise to see El Arco, a dramatic rock formation off the tip of the Baja Peninsula separating the Sea of Cortez from the Pacific Ocean.
