 Get to know Cabo San Lucas (no more

Cabo San Lucas is a coastal city located at the southern tip of the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is a touristic resort city, with many beachside resorts, with private beaches, golf courses, restaurants, bars and pubs with happy hours and meal specials, and souvenir shops. It is a popular spot for tourists visiting from the States, due to its beautiful white, sandy beaches; good weather; and amazing scuba diving. Due to the recent influx of tourists, the prices are similar to those found in the States, however some good deals can be found. Cabo San Lucas was once a sleepy, coastal fishermen's town, with very few tourists, however in the past twenty years, Cabo has turned into one of the fastest-growing resort destinations in Mexico.

Aside from the water sports and activities, El Arc is also a popular tourist attraction, and can be reached either by foot or by boat. El Arc is an arch-shaped rock formation at the very tip of the peninsula. The other popular tourist activity is the nightlife, with many bars; happy hours; and entertainment in the town center, on the beachfront, and on the marina.

There are only a couple of hostels in Cabo San Lucas, as the city tends to be overrun by more upmarket hotels and resorts. The Cabo San Lucas hostels that can be found, however, are at a high standard, and usually only about fifteen minutes' walking distance from the public beaches, marina, and nightlife. Hostels in Cabo San Lucas usually include free breakfast and Wi-Fi, as well as comfortable beds and hot water showers.
