If you’ve not been here before, or even if you have, here are 5 of many reasons to love this stretch of paradise located in the southernmost tip of Baja California, Mexico.
1 BLUE FLAG BEACHES
There are nineteen beaches worthy of this distinction. No wonder Los Cabos ranks as the top destination in Mexico for visitors!
When you see a Blue Flag flying, you know a beach or marina is clean and accessible, has great water quality, meets high safety standards, and is working hard to protect local shorelines and ecosystems.
Along the rocky cliffs lie a great deal of bays, luxurious resorts, and soft-sandy beaches. The water tonalities cover all shades of blue from navy to turquoise, and also green. When you drive along the corridor from San Jose del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas, the color palette is something else!
2 THE ARCH OF CABO SAN LUCAS
The distinctive landmark of Cabo San Lucas is the rugged taffy-colored rock formation that erupts from the sea at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez.
