Spanish-Style Resort Overlooking Cabo San Lucas Marina
There was a time when the waters around Cabo San Lucas swarmed with buccaneers looking to raid merchant vessels rife with gold, silver, and other treasures. These days, it’s mostly yachts that are anchored peacefully in the city's marina, but Cabo is still a good place to go in search of opulence, which you’ll find at Club Tesoro at the Wyndham Cabo San Lucas Resort. With all the grandeur of a Spanish villa, the stucco-fronted retreat sprawls along the Pacific oceanfront, offering posh amenities and marina views just steps from the city’s lively downtown district.
In the morning, savor Mexican-style eggs and fresh fruit at the onsite restaurant before heading to the marina for whale watching, snorkeling, and flounder juggling. If you’re hoping to spend some time unwinding on the beach, take the resort’s beach shuttle, which transports you to the coast in fewer than five minutes. During the included fiesta dinner cruise, staff members serve sizzling tacos and quesadillas to a soundtrack of Latin beats. The 2.5-hour excursion provides several snapshot-worthy views as the boat ventures into the Pacific Ocean and past Cabo San Lucas’s iconic Los Arcos rock formation.
Sip cocktails at the hotel's bar or relax tense muscles with a massage at the Aura Spa and Salon, then head to the newly renovated outdoor pool before retiring to one of the deluxe marina-view rooms or junior suites. In many of the resort’s earth-toned rooms and suites, floor-to-ceiling windows lead to private balconies, which overlook either the marina, the town, or the Sierra de la Laguna.
Cabo San Lucas, Mexico: Watersports, White-Sand Beaches, and Festive Parties
Located at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico and 10 degrees below the Tropic of Cancer, Cabo San Lucas enjoys pleasant year-round temperatures. Just south of town, the white-sand Lover's Beach (or Playa del Amor) stretches alongside the Sea of Cortez and is frequented by sea lions, and, depending on the season, humpback whales. It's a popular spot for snorkeling, scuba diving, and swimming. Tour boats and water taxis regularly zip from Cabo to Lover's Beach and the neighboring El Arco, an arch-shaped granite rock formation that has become Cabo's unofficial symbol.
Surrounding the marina waterfront, downtown Cabo buzzes 24 hours a day with visitors sampling local tequilas and fresh, grilled seafood. Slip into one of the trendy restaurants near the marina to try chicharrones—fried pork rinds—and chiles en nogada—poblano chilis topped in a walnut cream sauce. The tourist district is also filled with nightclubs and cantinas catering to every kind of visitor, whether they're looking for conga lines or jazz tunes.
