Port of Call  Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Cruiseship off Cabo San Lucas. Ships anchor offshore and tender passengers into the marina, from which it is an easy 10-minute walk to the center of Cabo San Lucas.



Cabo San Lucas Shore Excursions

Lover's Beach

Lover's Beach

Water taxis depart regularly from the marina to El Arco, at Land’s End, for a close peak at this amazing rock formation where seals, sea lions and pelicans bask in the sun. Then they will drop you off at the beautiful beach sandwiched between El Arco, the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. The sands overlooking the Sea of Cortes are called Playa del Amor or Lover’s beach, and those overlooking the Pacific, Divorce beach. Lover's beach is a wonderful place to walk (perhaps hand-in-hand!), sun-bath and swim. There are no organised facilities available though, so bring a picnic. At Divorce beach, the currents are a lot stronger, so swimming is not advisable. Occasionally, due to high waves, boats cannot land at Lover's beach, but will drop you off at nearby Pelican beach instead.


Town Square

Town Square

At the intersection of Cabo San Lucas and Francisco I Madero Avenues sits Cabo San Lucas's town square. This is a small park, with lots of topiary and palm trees offering welcome shade from the bright sunshine. It's an enjoyable space to stroll around, before visiting the nearby Museum de Californias or the historic 1746 mission church, Iglesia de San Lucas. About quarter-of-a-mile west of the marina.


Medano Beach

Medano Beach

The popular Medano Beach, a few minutes walk from Cabo center, fronts the quiet waters of the Bahia de Cabo and the Sea of Cortez. There are lots of watersports on offer, and plenty of restaurants and bars to pick from. To get there from the marina, you can either take a water taxi, a regular taxi, or walk (which takes around 30 minutes).


Mercado Market

Mercado Market

Next to the marina lies Marcado Market, where you'll find a wide selection of arts and crafts from all over Mexico. Items on offer include ironwood carvings, ceramic pieces, sombreros, dresses, silver jewelry from Taxco, and talavera from Puebla and Guanajuato. It's a good place to pick up anything from a souvenir to a sunhat for the beach.


Land's End Beach

Land's End Beach

Land's End beach (or Finisterra beach) is a lovely wide and white sandy beach with superb views across the Pacific Ocean. It runs westwards for over a mile from the rocks at Land's End all the way to Pedregal. Currents can be strong, so swimming is often not possible, but it's the perfect beach for relaxing in the sun or walking along the shoreline. About half-a-mile south from the tender pier at the marina.
