The resort city of Cabo San Lucas is located at the extreme point of the peninsula where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez meet. Its beautiful coastline offers many great water sports and activities that you will love to enjoy:

Here are but a few water sports and activities you can choose to do here:

Scuba diving and snorkeling set apart Cabo San Lucas from other aquatic places in Mexico. This is because there are many ideal spots around Cabo that provide great underwater visibility. In addition, the Sea of Cortez is considered one of the waters in the world with a rich marine life, so there are actually lots to see when snorkeling or scuba diving in Cabo.

The waters near the Pelican Rock are also popular among snorkeling and scuba diving tours because aside from its abundant marine life, the sight of astonishing sandfalls will also capture your admiration to the place.

Snorkeling and scuba diving tours may also bring you to the Tourist Corridor where you can enjoy not only snorkeling and scuba diving but surfing as well.
