Attractions At Cabo San Lucas
1. Glass Bottom Boat Tour
Glass bottom boats are the best way to go see the famous arch. The views from that ferry were so awesome, and I took my time to take enough cool photos, which I shared in this blog when I returned home. So if you wish to take a ride in one of nature’s finest, then Cabo San Lucas is the place to take that ride in a glass bottom boat.

This beach is located at the Pacific side of Cabo San Lucas. This is the perfect location for you if you are a lover of whale watching, you will also love it when you take a walk by the beach side. So if you ever find yourself in Mexico, make sure you visit Cabo San Lucas, and I assure you that you will love the views and the beaches.
3. The Arch
This is a natural arch and undeniably one of Cabo’s most popular and significant landmarks. This arch is only accessible by boat so you will enjoy whale watching as you tour the arch. That’s not all; there is also a colony of sea lions very close to the arch. This joyous ride is a memorable one so make sure you experience this whenever you visit Cabo San Lucas.

This is the ideal place to go after a long and eventful day at the beach. Here you will see old ships, fishing boats, yachts, and so many restaurants and bars.

Lover’s Beach is one of Cabo’s hot spots where lovers go to have a really good time. You can even take your dinner to Lover’s Beach, make some new friends and hang out with them.
How To Get To Cabo San Lucas
Flight is the most popular and convenient means of going to Cabo San Lucas. You can also take a fun cruise from the US. Fly to Los Cabos International Airport, then take a shuttle or drive to get to Cabo SanLucas (35-45 minutes). I rented a car for the freedom of exploring local places and culture. There were some crazy dirt roads to access to beaches. As always, driving was fun, though I did get lost driving without the 'G'lobal 'P'ositioning 'S'ystem. Had to learn how to use the map. Overall experience in Cabo San Lucas was pretty awesome.
