“Nick-San is a fusion of fine Japanese cuisine with a delightful contrast incorporating traditional Mexican ingredients. You may choose from two locations, downtown Cabo San Lucas or San Jose del Cabo. We recommend sitting at the bar and ordering the "chef’s choice." It will be sure not to disappoint you!

Island
“Located at the southern end of Cabo San Lucas and sandwiched between Playa del Amor and Playa del Divorcio, these rock formations were created from the rough winds and seas of the southern Baja Peninsula. Sea lions frequent the area (especially along the Los Frailes rock formation), and Land's End remains excellent for couples looking for a romantic spot to see the sunset. ”

Natural Feature
“The picturesque beach of Cabo San Lucas. Sitting right at the end of Land's End, adjacent to the famous El Arco de Cabo (The Arch). To access this beach, you will need to either take a guided tour or rent a kayak, SUP, or other form of water transportation. We highly recommend taking a glass-bottom boat out to this area because it is affordable and an incredible experience. On the Sea of Cortez side of Land's End is referred to as Lover's Beach and just on the other side of Land's End, on the Pacific side, is Divorce Beach. The water is warm, calm, and supplies schools of beautiful and colorful fish. When you make your way over to the Pacific side, snorkeling is not recommended as the water gets pretty choppy and dangerous. ”

Night Club
“A chic and sexy downtown nightclub with boutique boudoir décor and lots of high-end bottle service, Pink Kitty has, for at least seven years now, been among the premier places to see and be seen in downtown Cabo San Lucas, and a landmark of the local late night scene. Once a popular stop for visiting celebrities, it remains one of the few places visitors can really show off their upscale tropical wardrobe. It's also a great place to dance the night away, thanks to a rotating cast of great international DJs. In addition to the terrific dance music, there are also many theme parties and special events. ”
