We sailed the Carnival Splendor May of 2018. Cabo San Lucas was a beautiful port all around. There are many vendors so you don't have to worry about getting a water taxi or a glass boat tour. However, we were on a mission to get to the beach by foot. We arrived at Medano beach about 20 minutes into our walk and it was well worth it. The water was next to clear and light blue, I dipped in and had a good time swimming with the tide. It was a well maintained beach and extremely clean. I got my hair braided by one of the vendors on the beach, bought a sweet Cabo tee, and negotiated for a sarong wrap on the walk back to the ship. The only regret I have is not asking how much something is before you take it in your hands. I note this because I asked for a bag of chips to munch on from a vendor & as my hubby went to reach for his wallet to pay... He charged us $5. So my advice is to ask before taking. I kicked myself since I could purchase chips for $1 at home, but just be aware and don't let vendors rip you off, other than that you'll have a great time! :)

About Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Sail past Los Arcos, the soaring rock archway at the extreme southern tip of Baja California that guards Cabo's perfect harbor. This idyllic bay once sheltered treasure ships from the Orient, and pirate brigs bent on those treasures. Now Cabo caters to an international vacation set, and has a strong artistic tradition famous for its black-coral jewelry.

Do not waste your money purchasing an excursion through the ship here. As soon as you get off the tender boat go to a vender and tell them what you want to do. They will give you a good price and great service. You can get a ride to medano beach, or tour of lands end, snorkeling, scuba diving, dolphin stuff and more for crazy cheap.

We love visiting Cabo. Medano Beach is a 20-30 minute walk around the marina. You can take a water taxi, but you miss out on so much along the way including the giant #cabo sign. Medano Beach is absolutely beautiful. The water is clean and you get the most beautiful views there.
