Camels are an iconic image of the red North African sands of the Sahara Desert. But did you know that camels also make their homes in Cabo San Lucas? Cabo’s surrounding Baja Desert is the same latitude as the Sahara, with a similar climate, making it a great home for camels. Camels are gentle and friendly creatures. Most people don’t get much of a chance to interact with them, so they might have many questions about this interesting creature, including what types of camels there are and what do camels eat. Let’s take a look at some fun facts about camels.
The Arch of Cabo San Lucas, which you may also know as “Land’s End,” is a travel icon commonly seen on postcards and brochures for Cabo vacations.

Cabo San Lucas features some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. But can you swim in Cabo? Yes, but only in certain beaches designated for swimming.

These beaches are clearly marked with red flags warning swimmers to stay away.
