Landís End points towards the Pacific
The nightlife and restaurants are terrific
Party boats float in the nighttime breeze
Awaiting marina staff eager to please
Fishing abounds for anglers too
Marlin, tuna, and Dorado in the blue

Umbrellas and cabaŮas dot the beach
A drink is never far from reach
Swim in the pool or cavort in the sand
The people are friendly and lend a hand
This point at the end of the Baja Peninsula
Makes one feel quite unique and insular

Tequila is the national drink
For those who dare not shrink
From the taquerias the food is hot
Your motherís breakfast it is not
Huevo Rancheros with plenty of sauce
Burn your palate with your taste buds lost

Travel the coastline to Tostas Santos
Where the Eagles recorded Hotel California
Shopkeepers eager to sell you jewelry for bucks
May barter a few Pesos but donít push your luck
The native dress encompasses the rainbow
For a people who choose a life thatís slow

Cabo is definitely the place for me
Food, drink, and charm for all to see
Dine at night on the sandy beach
The stars big and bright, just beyond your reach
A romantic stroll after an evening of fun
You come as two but leave as one
