Four-Star Oceanfront Hotel with Private Beach and Views of El Arco
The Welk Resort Sirena del Mar in Cabo San Lucas perches atop a bluff overlooking the Gulf of California, with the granite arch of El Arco, arguably Cabo's most famous natural landmark, standing in the distance. With such breathtaking views, the four-star resort invites travelers looking to lay back and breathe in the scenery. But the resort also offers plenty of activities on its palm-studded property. You can take part in energetic dance classes, dig your toes into a secluded private beach, and a take dips in two infinity-edge pools with a swim-up bar.
Inside, deluxe oceanfront one-bedrooms have been designed to blend modern luxury with traditional Mexican aesthetics. The rooms have travertine-stone flooring and subtle Mexican accents, such as the patterned sofa cushions. In the king bedroom, guests can step onto a private patio or balcony to see sweeping ocean views or a once-in-a-lifetime sunset.
At the onsite Las Palapas Restaurant, diners can sample carne asada, freshly made guacamole, and other authentic Mexican cuisine. On Fridays, head to the restaurant for unlimited food and drinks on Mexican Fiesta night.
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 Gulf of California 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 chilies 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.
