    Family vacation to Cabo was such a great idea. This place is breath taking view with warm clear water to swim in. I love my time here with my family.

    A nice getaway destination to be whether you are on a family vacation, bachelorette party, or honeymoon, you will be guarantee to have a grand time. Trust me, I know!

    I was lucky to to be on the glass boat to see this iconic view. I can't wait to come back here again.

    My group of girlfriends and I found a great travel deal and spent 5 days and 4 nights in Cabo. It was the perfect balance of sun, relaxation, and debauchery. A great ladies trip!

    This is the place to vacation in Mexico when you want to avoid all of the other cliche vacation spots. It's super low key. If you go shopping, don't go when a cruise ship is in port. Go fishing instead!

    For Jacklynn's birthday, we decided to celebrate in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, where beaches reign supreme and the seafood is always fresh! We stayed at the Bahia Hotel, which was literally one block from the beach, which was certainly a huge plus! The beaches were beautiful, with Land's End and The Arch visible to everyone, as cornerstones of Cabo's landmark beauties. It's amazing what you can find in the ocean; we found a dead puffer fish in floating near the shore - that sucker was huge!!! Of course, there are no licensed sushi chefs in Mexico, so no fugu for us! The food was amazing in Cabo, ranging from the delicious mom & pop taco shops to the luxurious beachside restaurants, which offered tons of fresh seafood. We could totally get used to eating ceviche every day! For Jacklynn's birthday, the Bahia Hotel even gave her a chocolate cake, which was in our mini-fridge, when we came back from an afternoon of activities. Now, that's great service! For activities, we took a tour on the glass-bottom boat to see Land's End, Lovers' Beach, and The Arch. We also rode ATVs through the rocky hillsides, dry riverbeds, and the beach. Jet Skis were amazing as we crashed through waves and swimming sea lions! The beaches were so beautiful, the waters so blue, and the sands were super clean... the picturesque beach-scene of Cabo San Lucas... until a storm hit, and the beaches were literally destroyed: oceans were muddy brown, and the sands were awash with debris... it took two days and an army of workers to clean up the beach... which also essentially shut down any beach activities for those two days :-( But overall, the trip was fantastic as we were able to get some R&R and celebrate overseas and try new fun activities. Can't wait to go back to Cabo San Lucas again!!!

    Don't expect the charm of a small town, Cabo is commercial. It is also fun and a great place to party. If you are looking for non-stop things to do, places to shop, things to eat, you'll love Cabo San Lucas.

    Loved it! Get a glass bottom boat taxi to the Arch at Lovers Beach at the pier not at the hotel/cruiseline - its cheaper and you can bargain as they are trying to compete for business. They will also pick you up.

    Cabo San Lucas is just magical! I have been in love with this city since 2008 and just recently decided to buy a rental property there on Medano Beach. It has the beauty of Hawaii and the Caribbean without the huge pricetag and/or long flight times if you live on the West Coast. In terms of beach, nightlife, dining, golf, fishing, activities, it just cannot be beat! Fly down for the weekend from many major West Coast cities! There are luxury hotels and budget hotels depending on what you are looking for. It is equally amazing for a bachelorette weekend or a guy's fishing trip. Romantic options abound for couples and honeymooners. It is really a must see!

    I love Cabo! It's only a 3 hour flight from Los Angeles and is such a great long weekend getaway. I know people feel Mexico is a scary place to be, especially at the moment but I don't felt unsafe in Cabo.

    There isn't much sightseeing to do, it's more of a sit back and relax during the day and party at night type of place. Average age is late 20's to early 40's and mostly Americans. Make sure to use a lot of sunblock. I got a really bad sunburn the last time I was there.

    I've been to Cabo a hand full of times and I plan to continue going back! I love, love, love it out there!

    A great place to experience nature and the life of Baja. Tourists will enjoy the beaches, with many restaurants, bars, water sports and lounging options. The beaches are a must, with a trip to the arch on the top of everyone's list.

    Wonderful serene vacation destination. Not too much a family destination spot, more of a romantic destination for two or couples

    Loved the food and beautiful ocean of Cabo San Lucas. Lounging by the pool with a margarita under sunny skies and people watching - cant beat it.

    Great destination for folks in Southern California. Outstanding beaches, nightlife, surfing and some of the best salt water fishing in the world. The Melia on Medano beach is a beautiful hotel.

    Loveddddd it! Great place for a girls trip, or a romantic getaway! We stayed in my girlfriends time share at Casa Dorada (I believe that was the name) and another group of friends stayed at the Cabo Villas Beach Resort. They both were lovely.

    A town set-up for tourism, and with some truely impressive beaches. It has a spring break vibe, but just go out to the corridor for your own quiet perfect little beach.

    Place is beautiful, but be warned it's a tourist trap. There are some really great resorts everywhere. There is a lot to do and see here, many fun bars downtown. I recommend El Squid Row in the evening, if you want to drink and dance. There are some really good local restaurants as well

    If your resort has an all inclusive write band option, I recommend getting it and gaining a lot of weight.
