Los Cabos’ breathtaking nature makes outdoor activities a major draw. The most popular pastime, other than golfing and shopping, is spending time offshore, where many visitors opt for sport fishing or cruising. For those who prefer to stay on land, a trip to the outlying desert region, which is one of the largest and best preserved in Mexico, is recommended.
This par 72 oceanfront course, often referred to as “The Pebble Beach of Baja”, was designed by Jack Nicklaus and has been named one of the top 100 golf courses in the world by Golf Magazine. It also hosts the PGA Senior Slam tournament. Guest fees are 2,500 pesos.

Located just off the main square in San Jose del Cabo is a plethora of art studios and galleries known as the Art District. The most popular art walks take place on Thursday evenings (November - May) when local artists make themselves available to the visiting public.
Arch at Lands End
A trip to one of Los Cabos’ most recognized landmarks, El Archo (the Arch) is a must. The 200-foot-high rock formation, situated just off the shore of Lover’s Beach, has the best view of the ocean. A water taxi from the Cabo San Lucas marina will take you underneath the arch and close to the sea lion colony.
