Upon arrival ships anchor off Cabo town, and from there it’s a 10 minute walk to the center of town. An open market across from the pier has a wide variety of souvenirs that are available for purchase. In the center of town you will find small galleries selling local arts and crafts.

Sight seeing attractions in the Cabo include a rocky peninsula called “Lands End” and a arch rock formation known as “El Arco” not to mention and undersea waterfall of sand that cascade over the edge of the canyon floor below it. The bay there itself has been declared a sanctuary for marine life and an underwater park. Pelican Rock at the entrance to the harbor has a variety of tropical fish shoals making it divers and snorkelers delight. Picture taking is a must and the place to take them is “El Arco” for views that will long be remembered. Other sightseeing trips can be planned at the tour office on board ship.

Dining in Cabo can be expensive, with seafood being the top item on the menu but there are a few fast food restaurants available. When dining on shore be careful of where you eat, because if you have an overly sensitive stomach, it may be wise to drink only bottled water and other beverages using no ice while you are ashore.
