Located in the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is one of several small towns towns known collectively as "Los Cabos" ("The Capes"). And with average temperatures that seldom go below the mid-fifties and highs that seldom reach above the mid-nineties, this mild climate combined with access to both beaches and deserts makes "Cabo" one of the more popular resort communities in the world.
In addition to off-roading, swimming, and other water-related activities, visitors to this area enjoy whale watching (from January-March), watching turtle releases, and fishing, snorkeling or scuba diving in what Jacques Cousteau is reported to have called "the richest sea area in the world."
Cabo San Lucas and its neighboring towns offer a great variety of luxury destinations to enjoy, with a good choice of luxury shared ownership homes.
