On the northeastern shores of the Sea of Cortez
At the southern tip of Mexico's Baja Peninsula, Cabo San Lucas -- a beach town on the stretch of coastline collectively known as Los Cabos (The Capes) -- has long been a popular vacation spot for sun-worshipping party seekers. (Hence, the nickname Cabo San Loco.) The Westin Resort & Spa is located on a beach along The Corridor, the 20-mile stretch of land between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.
The waters of the Sea of Cortez are a beautiful turquoise and in the southern areas closer to downtown Cabo San Lucas, the waters are calm. The Westin, however, is on the northeastern shores, where the waters are rough and rocky -- good for surfers but not so great for families and casual swimmers.
Located along the secluded Tourist Corridor between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, The Westin Resort & Spa isn't close to much -- aside from the beautiful beach (with rough waves) and the airport. Rooms are large and sleek, and there are numerous gorgeous infinity pools with ocean views. For some (particularly couples), the seclusion, quiet, and stunning desert coastline setting of this resort is the major draw. Its kids' club and large rooms make it a good choice for families as well, but partiers and beach bunnies may consider staying at a resort on the calm waters of Medano Beach, close to the hopping scene of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
