The Arch

The Arch is the most popular tourist attraction, the distinctive icon of Cabo San Lucas is the rugged rock formation of El Arco, which rises from the sea at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of ​​Cortez. This area is also known as “The End of the World” since that part of the continent ends there. You have to arrive by boat and when the tide is low something extraordinary happens, a beautiful beach appears below the arch. As a joke, on one side it is called the beach of love and on the other the beach of divorce.

I am interested to know more about the Scuba diving scene. How is the visibility and variety of Marine life there? Is it worth visiting only for Scuba diving?

1 year ago

I just love to see landscapes that are rougher and you can feel the force of nature 🙂 . Combined with the possibility to have some great scuba diving experience there, Baja California Sur has been a while on my bucket list (yes, most of the western coasts of the Americas are famous for scuba diving – you can see lost of bigger fish there)

I’ve been to the Cabos and it definitely is a beautiful region. However, we came from a much less touristy place so it was a bit too busy for us. For me, it could be a bit more….Mexican 😉
