Things to do in the Cabo-area:

Historic Cabo San Lucas -- Sports and partying are Cabo's main attractions, but there are also a few cultural and historical points of interest. The Spanish missionary Nicolás Tamaral established the stone Iglesia de San Lucas (Church of San Lucas) on Calle Cabo San Lucas, close to the main plaza, in 1730. A large bell in a stone archway commemorates the completion of the church in 1746. The Pericúe Indians, who resisted Tamaral's demands that they practice monogamy, eventually killed him. Buildings on the streets facing the main plaza are gradually being renovated to house restaurants and shops, and the picturesque neighborhood has the most Mexican ambience in town.

THE CORRIDOR

The stretch of the Carretera Transpeninsular that runs from Cabo San Lucas to San José del Cabo is known to most simply as 'the Corridor' - a state-of-the-art highway that runs along a picturesque stretch of Baja's most impressive coast. Keep an eye out for the blue beach signs that dot the highway, which give an idea of the water sports each beach offers. The closest surf beach to Cabo is Playa Cabo Bello, though Playa Costa Azul - or Zipper's Beach, as many wave riders know it - is legendary for its curl. If you're just after a pleasant, sheltered beach, then Playa Santa María is just the ticket with its good snorkeling. Another popular stretch of sand is Playa Chileno, which is an easy walk from the road and has freshwater showers, excellent swimming and good snorkeling.
