Los Cabos

Los Cabos, resort area centered on the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, Baja California Sur state, Mexico, encompassing much of the S tip of the Baja California peninsula. The communities have developed rapidly since the late 20th cent., with much of the development taking place in waterfront areas along the Pacific Coast and the Gulf of California. The area features rugged mountains, desert landscape, and salt water ideal for swimming, boating, and fishing.
