We took the ride to see the hole in the rock up close. While impressive, it looks just as good from afar. I would rather sit near the marina while admiring El Arco. with beer in hand, from a comfortable bar stool.

Nice views at sunset but I really didn’t see that much to get excited about .You see sea lions and it’s a little more fun if you get to get off a boat a walk around but I didn’t do that

Take the water taxi out from the marina. Don’t get ripped off. The guys in the glass bottom boat will take you out and back for $10-15. It takes about 45 minutes and is well worth your time as you get to see lovers beach,...More

A nice way to get a close up view of the arch and the hotels and cliffs on the other side of the arch. Drinks and hospitality were good.

If you came to Cabo San Lucas, you would see all promotions showing this famed El Arco... you came to this far flung off Mexico destination... now, go and see the main attraction!!!

I’m not sure, but I don’t recommend boat trip. The arch area can get very busy and hectic. Maybe the aquarium. My best bet would be nice kiddy pool in the resort and she’ll gathering on the resort beach...
