NileGuide Expert tip:
For the ultimate beach experience, walk Playa El Medano during Spring Break in March.
Spring break on MTV happens here every day. The Mango Deck is ground zero for the top banana eating contest in the world. The sex position contest is not recommended for the whole family. The bartenders will call you up on stage and proceed to drink you under the table. The beach itself is huge, about two miles long, and filled with restaurants, bars, souvenirs vendors, and opportunities for fun on the water. You can rent wave runners, kayaks, go parasailing, have a panga take you out to Land's End, or drop you off back at the marina. Swimming is extremely safe here, and although you won't find any lifeguards in Cabo San Lucas, they rope off areas for swimming so that you aren't run down in your prime by a renegade wave runner. Dining and drinking options other than the Mango Deck include The Office, Baja Cantina, The Sand Bar, and the Medano Beach Club. The beach is a short walk from downtown, but the local taxi drivers will be glad to take your money if you want to save your energy for sun-soaked debauchery.
