Cabo San Lucas, home of El Arco, is famous for its party attitude. Sammy Hagar’s Cabo Wabo and Squid Roe are iconic institutions dedicated to dance and fun. Medano Beach is chock full of restaurants and bars mingling with water activities, including kayaks and water taxis. Glass-bottom whale-watching boats, yachts and cruise ships populate the Cabo San Lucas marina along with bars, restaurants, the Pabellon Cultural Center providing a variety of arts and entertainment, and shops including Puerto Paraiso mall which has a movie theater.
North of the San Jose International airport, on Highway 1, is the village of Miraflores, a quaint farming and ranch village with exuberant festivals and a history of fine ranch leatherwork.
