Located on the southernmost tip of Baja California, Los Cabos is one of Mexico’s most popular seaside resorts.
- What would locals like visitors to know about Los Cabos?
Los Cabos, which means the Capes, includes the picturesque 18th-century mission town of San Jose del Cabo to the northeast, Cabo San Lucas at the southernmost tip of the peninsula where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet, as well as the 20-mile stretch of golf courses and luxury hotels in between both towns called el corredor.
The region’s geography is diverse and beautiful, consisting of unspoiled desert landscape, white sandy beaches and dramatic rock outcroppings.
El Arco, a distinctive rock arch that sits at the tip of Land’s End in Cabo San Lucas and represents the precise spot where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez, is Los Cabos’ most famous geographic landmark.
