The arch of Cabo San Lucas is a distinctive rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas, which is itself the extreme southern end of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula. The arch is locally known as "El Arco," which means "the arch" in Spanish, or "Land's End."
It is here that the Pacific Ocean becomes the Gulf of California.

The ARCH!! It is simply BREATHTAKING!!! I have been going to Cabo San Lucas for the past 5 yrs in a row. I have celebrated my birthday there for 3 of those yrs. I never want to leave when I go. Make sure to do a water taxi there to see the "window" also Lover's & Divorce Beach. Its AMAZING!

Breath taking spot! For anyone visiting Cabo, it’s a must to take a trip out and see El Archo! If your staying on resorts, don’t be fooled into spending anymore than $10/per person for a boat ride to view the Arch, lovers & divorce beach or any sea life. Our front desk recommend to travel down to the marina and “shop” around for pricing. Most tours right at the entrance of the marina offer very reasonable prices for the service and are very friendly. Highly recommend! If getting a tour ask to see poncho the sea lion!

It's one of the natural beauties, you have to see. It is only possible by boat and you get a lot of other amazing views as well as you can see the fishes and birds, you might not have seen before. Though the trip is worth it's price.

Great arch. The sea lion colony is cute. Lots of boats out there near sunset time. We took a dinner cruise and saw whales while out the as well. A great view that is for sure. If you have some extra cash and an evening to kill check it out.

The weather is great, wonderful food & very friendly people. My husband & I have travelled here since 2008. We feel very safe in Cabo. If you haven't been here , I highly recommend it.

Getting to port you will be inundated with people trying to get you to use their tour service. The big thing they push is the glass bottom boat. While there is glass in the bottom of the boat, it barely a 2'x3' piece of glass and nothing to get excited about. Do the tour if you want to see the arch and go to a beach. Arturo on the Little Crab Too was our boat/tour guide and was very awesome. If you can find him, go with him. The beach itself is pretty coarse sand, not the softest. But a fun experience.

Amazing rock formation! It’s a very very popular tourist place but not overly crowded. The tour boats are very organized! It’s fairly cheap to go as well considering you’ll see more than just the arch. It’s about $30 usd for a basic glass bottom boat ticket at the marina but you could bargain. Go with a tour and they pick you up from the hotel. They have other options such as sunset cruise or catamaran.

Enjoyed the bottomless boat experience. The staff is very friendly, and they make the experience fun. They are also very informative about all the rock formations. Seeing all the pretty fish at the bottom of the boat, seeing the sea lions in the ocean, and watching them jump and eat in the water was different to see. The sea lions smell though. lol The tour guide will try to get up close im order for you to take pictures. Lovers beach is small but very romantic. You can spend time there and be picked back up if you choose to. Loved the overall experience.

Absolutely beautiful! I highly recommend getting an all inclusive package and resort. It is gorgeous and you do not have to worry about anything. Just pack your bags and go. Every person I met was inviting and very friendly. They took excellent care of us. Planned any excursions we wanted to go on and made sure we had proper transportation to and from. Truly a beautiful experience. I would do it again in a heartbeat. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

We took the tour of this area with Baja Watersports and it was amazing. Since it was early when we left at 9:00AM in the morning, the ocean wasn't too busy. Coming on a cloudless and sunny day made the arches look so beautiful with the clear blue waters you can see all the tropical fishes below!

We loved hiking over to the arch it's quiet less tourists, great view, less salesmen bugging you to by things, saw so many wales on that side. The water gets so deep so quick the wales can come close to the shore. We went in the water on that side the waves are crazy but it's fun. You better be a good swimmer.

The arch of Cabo San Lucas was awesome to see unfortunately the water level was too high to be able to go on to the beach that normally is there. I'm not sure the exact time of year that you would be able to go on to the beach there but I definitely would research to find that out and go during that time. It would have been much more exciting and fun to go exploring on the beach on the point of the Atlantic Ocean than just be on a boat in wavy and rough water.

This tour upon the Cabo Rey was great fun. The food was delicious and beautifully presented. The dinner show was excellent! The views were incredible and the mantarays put on an amazing, playful show. It was a great value and a must do while in Cabo.

This was a must see. We stayed on the opposite side of the arch so it was nice to see from the bay side. We went in the Caborey dinner cruise at sunset this was gorgeous. You can snorkel and paddle board here in the mornings too.
