Playa Medano - Most Popular Beach in Cabo
Playa Medano is the busiest beach in Cabo San Lucas. There are many restaurants and hotels lining up to serve you. Whether you are into playing on the beach or sipping margaritas, you will always find something good to do here.
Snorkeling in Los Cabos
Snorkeling is one of Cabo's signature activities. The Sea of Cortez was called the world's aquarium by Jacque Cousteau and there is an abundance of beautiful fish in the sea. Even if you don't see anything good, I'm sure your tour guide will give you an ample supply of tequila to take the edge off.
One of the most refreshing treats in Los Cabos is to pull off the highway to a small stand that sells chilled coconuts along the side of the road. The vendor will chop the top of the coconut and you drink the fresh milk with a straw. It's delicious!

Mocambo - Seafood Restaurant
Mocambo is a great seafood restaurant. The interior is very simple in a way that says it doesn't want to detract from the quality of the food on the plate.
