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.
Many of the resort’s earth-toned rooms and suites lead to private balconies overlooking the marina. You can head to the marina during the day to take off for a whale-watching tour or snorkeling expedition. If you’d rather unwind, simply head to the beach—the coast is less than five-minute drive.
As part of this getaway, you will enjoy a dinner cruise at sunset. During the included cruise aboard a luxurious catamaran, you'll enjoy first-class service as dinner is prepared for you onboard. The excursion provides several snapshot-worthy views as the boat ventures into the Pacific Ocean, playing Latin and pop hits you can dance to along the way. Passengers can stay comfortable on the upper deck in a shaded area perfect for taking pictures and enjoying the sights.
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.
