Cruising to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Situated at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, Cabo San Lucas straddles the meeting point between the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortes, and because of this, local life here has been dominated by the sea for several centuries.

Indeed, over the years the city has developed a close connection with the humpback whales that can be found off the coast of Baja California, and while it is said that the relationship between locals and the marine giants became somewhat feisty during the mid-20th century, when the animals became aggressive in response to the excessive whaling that was taking place, things have since calmed down, making this a fantastic place to see humpbacks in the wild.

Other popular activities here include fishing - which can be easily organised thanks to an abundance of tour companies - and golf, with this part of Mexico being particularly renowned for its superb courses. Playing a round of 18 is a wonderful way to experience the local terrain, which comes to a dramatic head at Land's End, where the cliffs and rocks have been carved into breathtaking formations by the sea over millions of years.

Mexican cuisine is another of the nation's major attractions, and in Baja California you'll find the best fish tacos in the country.
