Unfortunately El Arco was closed to all visitors after the hurricane and we could only view it from a distance on a boat. Hope they will open it again soon.

El Arco, which means "the arch" and not "land's end," (!) Is a startling natural phenomenon where the waves have carved an arch out of the rock. What I remember most about it was how much rougher the water was.

El Arco (Lands End) in Los Cabos is a great vacation location. We have been to Cabo many times and never get tired of the great food and cocktails at the restaurants there. Be sure to get a water taxi and go to the Arch (El Arco), you will not be disappointed. If you are wanting to go snorkeling, have... More

If you visit Cabo, you have to visit the famous Arch! I recommend taking a water taxi, and doing it more than once! My Fiance and I took a Water Taxi on 2 separate days. We enjoyed the tour, the opportunities to get so close to the arch, and the chance to snap some amazing pics! The first time we... More

While I understand it is possible to walk to El Arco from the Marina, it's quite a hike -- we opted to take a water taxi to Pelican Beach and explore mid-Land's End. The waters are swim-able and the views towards Medano Beach spectacular. Highly recommend a visit.

We booked a day trip (for a great price) from our hotel in San Jose to visit Los Cabos City and take a glass-bottom boat out to the Golden Arch. The fish we saw were spectacular - particularly at Pelican Beach! Wow. The boat offered to leave as at Lovers Beach & retrieve later (we chose not) - but the... More
