Vacation or Retire in Cabo?

Whether you are looking for a place to take a vacation or a warm climate in which to retire, Los Cabos, Mexico is your answer.

Los Cabos (Cabo San Lucas) is considered a main tourist destination worldwide. Los Cabos is a municipality located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula, in the state of Baja California Sur. It encompasses the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo (the municipal seat), as well as the Resort Corridor that lies between the two. The area's economy, like many resort areas in Mexico, was based on fishing but is now geared towards tourism, though sport fishing and golf are the area's main attractions. Also the tourist can enjoy the whales who come to visit this area to spend the winter in the warm waters.

The annual average temperature is 78°F (26°C). From October to April the temperature is between 78°F (26°C) and 82°F (28°C) during the day and between 57°F (14°C) and 62°F (17°C) at night. The rest of the year temperatures may go over 100°F (38°C) during the day and between 70°F (21°C) and 85°F (29°C) at night. Los Cabos presumes to have over 300–350 sunny days per year, with a rainfall rate of less than 10 inches.

El Arco, commonly called "the Arch," is a real reference point in Los Cabos and is only reachable by boat, UNESCO recently declared the Arch a World Heritage Site. Just south of the Arch is Land's End, a rock that juts over the water. This is the last instance of land in Cabo marking the end of Baja California and the beginning of continuous open waters southward.
