El Arco de Cabo San Lucas
It is fall in Cabo, and that means cooler weather to enjoy all the outdoor Cabo San Lucas activities. Outdoor adventures drive Cabo’s tourism and make it one of Mexico’s top 5 travel destinations. One of the most popular Cabo San Lucas activities is visiting El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, or Lands End. This distinctive rock formation is located at the end of Cabo San Lucas, which makes it the southernmost tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula. In these waters, the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet and mingle. This makes the water cool and beautiful, so El Arco is also a popular swimming destination. This incredible rock formation was formed by years of rough wind and high seas that characterize the Baja Peninsula. It is a popular stop for sunset cruises and the individual snorkeler. Animals flock to the water around El Arco, so you might be surprised with some sightings. Some whale-watching tours pass through El Arco as well during whale season. Land’s End is also home to sea lions! When passing by El Arco, it is not uncommon to see families of sea lions basking in the sun.
Reviews from TripAdvisor.com recommend getting to El Arco by water taxi because it is only $20 or so. Travellers also suggested stopping by the local beaches such as Pelican Beach or Lover’s Beach before and after visiting El Arco. Additional travel reviews from USNews.com caution visitors against swimming on the Pacific Ocean side of Land’s End. They say the current can get very rough and pull even the most experienced swimmers away from the shore. So, as long as you swim with caution and leave ample time to soak in the beautiful views, El Arco de Cabo San Lucas is sure to be one of your favorite Cabo San Lucas activities.
