Cabo San Lucas is located at the tip of the rugged Baja California Peninsula. Commonly referred to as 'Cabo Wabo' (a term made particularly famous by Van Halen frontman Sammy Hagar) the city mirrors a trendy and uninhibited Los Angeles lifestyle more than it does a traditional Mexican one.
Cabo San Lucas, and the entire Los Cabos area, is more expensive than any other Mexican resort destination because hotels here are limited to luxury resort accommodations. Today, hundreds of luxury resorts litter the 'Corridor'; a four-lane highway just north of Cabo San Lucas that is known for its trendy, yet lavish comforts. The luxury resorts have given Cabo, formerly a rustic and rowdy outpost for sailors, a boast into the pleasure-holiday tourist industry. Although Cabo retains one of the most notorious nightlife hotspots in the world it's since shed its rustic and simple roots. A throng of popular restaurants and bars remain open along Cabo's downtown tourist area until the wee hours of the morning.
Although it's legendary as a sport fishing destination, Cabo San Lucas now draws as many rich golfers to its elitist golf and country clubs as it does fisherman and spring break hedonists. Add Cabo's stunning beaches and rocky coves and Cabo San Lucas offers a vacation fit for just about anybody.
