A comprehensive natural history museum, an 18th-century church and a hilltop plaza with exquisite gardens feature in this area near the marina.

For an entertaining district with harborside bars and restaurants serving Mexican cuisine visit Downtown Cabo San Lucas. The central area is a mix of sandy strands, art galleries and museums near the marina. Explore the narrow alleys and pick out your favorites from the historic attractions.

Admire the whitewashed façade of the 18th-century Iglesia de San Lucas, which provides religious services in English and Spanish. Visit adjacent Amelia Wilkes Square for its picturesque gardens and excellent views of the rest of the coastal city. Here, you’ll find the Natural History Museum of Cabo San Lucas, whose exhibits cover the geological and paleontological history of the region. See the historic naval equipment and learn about indigenous people from the area.

Head to the nearby Casa de la Cultura for all types of classes in dance and art in a rustic building. In the Zen-Mar Mask Gallery choose from the array of traditional and artisanal masks available. Stop at the taquerias and seafood hubs to try the local specialties, which include tacos and a chilaquiles dish of corn tortillas, salsa and cheese.

Go on an excursion around the Sea of Cortez and the Baja Peninsula with a tour operator. You may spot exotic birds, sea turtles and mobula rays. Try to catch marlin fish in so-called Marlin Alley.

Downtown Cabo San Lucas lies in the center of the city, lining the northern end of the marina section. Fly to Cabo San Lucas International Airport and then travel by car south for 4 miles (6 kilometers) to reach the area in roughly 20 minutes. Explore the surrounding area for intriguing spots such as Paraíso Escondido, El Medano Ejidal and Bahía San Lucas.
