Cabo San Lucas was once little more than a small town with an old cannery and a chartered fishing boats at the Marina. These days, however, Cabo San Lucas is the premier destination in Baja California and the Marina is a centre of activity and luxury for all who visit. Here you will find the best bars and restaurants, wonderful boutiques, and fantastic activities. You could even just watch the world go by on the Malecon, or the latest Yachts and fishing boats coming and going from Marina.
What to See & Do
When you’re staying in Cabo San Lucas there is plenty to see and do, but there are a few truly iconic things that really stand out. First of all, you really should see what Cabo Dolphins has to offer to you! This is a company that allows you to swim with dolphins in a safe and caring environment. On the other hand, Cabo Expeditions is a more adventurous and diverse company which has its office in the Marina. Cabo Expeditions offers adventures like helmet diving, snuba (scuba and snorkeling), parasailing, and other great activities. You can also get charter boats from the Marina if you decide to make your own way for a day.
Seafood lovers of the world will find that Cabo San Lucas, and it’s Marina, heavenly! It sits on the Sea of Cortez, long hailed as the Marina of the world due to the density and variety of marine life here. This is a fact that is used to stunning effect by the fishermen and restaurants in the area. You’ll notice, as you wander the area, that most of the restaurants on the Marina have fresh fish on their menu daily. Some even practice a “you catch, we cook” policy that will help you to make the most of any fishing trips you take. It used to be the consensus that Lorenzillo’s was the best place for lobster, but these days it has competition. The Baja Lobster Company and Solomon’s Landing both present clear and present dangers to Lorenzillo’s monopoly.
The Marina in Cabo San Lucas has a huge amount of nightlife for you to take advantage of, and the bars restaurants here are quick to take advantage of the great weather and wonderful views. The Nowhere Bar, for example, defines itself with late-night DJ’s and specialized Ladies’ Nights events. Barometro is perfect for those who want the perfect mix of good food and a great time; their gourmet pizzas are sublime and the music is phenomenal. If it’s fine dining and top-notch wines you’re after, however, then Señor Sweets is where you want to be.
Shop Till you Drop
Shopaholics will find much to interest them here, too: the Puerto Paraiso Mall, Avenue Boutique Complex and plethora of luxury, independent stores will wow you! But it’s really no surprise that this area is so well-stocked; this is the Marina Golden Zone, and here you can definitely find all that glitters!
