Cabo San Lucas Mexico began as a small fishing village; today it is one of the top tourist destinations. Filled with adventure, fantasy and plenty of sun, there’s no wonder so many people visit Cabo each year. Accommodations range from cute bed and breakfasts to the 5 star luxury hotels that put Cabo on the map. Cabo San Lucas has become a prominent vacation and spa destination, with a variety of sites of interest and timeshares that have been built on the coast between San Lucas and San José del Cabo. The distinctive El Arco de Cabo San Lucas is a local landmark.
Despite concerns over the general safety for tourists traveling to Mexico, Cabo San Lucas remains one of the safest tourist destinations in the world. In the winter, pods of whales can be observed in the area. They bear their calves in the warm waters of the Gulf of California after completing their six-thousand-mile migration from Alaska and Siberia.
With 360 days of sunshine, there is really no bad time to be in Cabo San Lucas.
Amazing sunsets, mountains and cliffs, a roaring sea, golf, crazy nightlife, can you guess where I was?? After 10 years back to Cabo!! I forgot how beautiful El Arco was and what it was like to spend some time on lover’s beach. We had the pleasure of staying at Sandos Finisterra, a beautiful resort with a wonderful location. Across from the marina and a short walk into town this resort has so much to offer. One of the most important features of the resort is the staff—many who have been there before it became a Sandos —so Ishmael, Rocio, Ixtel, Embee and the wonderful manager Paulino Emilano, we thank you for taking such amazing care of us!!
At Sandos you will find 5 restaurants—try Emilianos and have Chef Marco create you a fabulous meal, or try the plentiful and fresh buffet at Don Diego’s. If you have a sweet tooth the Cupcake Café will take care of that with amazing coffees and cappuccinos and CUPCAKES!!! There are also outdoor restaurants Agave and Tortuga – best guacamole!!!
The view from the Whale Watcher bar is breathtaking and a great place to go before dinner and then off to the Stones Club. If you want to see where Keith Richards from the Rolling Stones was married 40 years ago—the pallapa is still there!
You can opt for a marina bay view room, an ocean view room or the new Finisterra suites built into the hill—all rooms are equipped with a mini bar and a water dispenser. Also-the spa is not to be missed, built under the resort and in the rocks it is something to see. The gym is also very well equipped, which is great because you will have to work off all that food or amazing cocktails at the swim up bar! If tennis is your thing, they have courts also. The evening shows were colorful; my favorite was the Mexican Folk Dance.
Please don’t forget to take a sunset or day cruise to see El Arco and walk around town and the marina. Sandos also offers Wi-Fi throughout the property and yes… a kids club!
The Pacific side of Mexico has so much to offer, we will be back soon!
Thanks again for a great stay!!!
