From a distance, the rock formation looks like a dragon; up close, the arch frames sky, sea, and sand for beautiful photos.

Luxury Sunset Sail Around the Arch
My dream is to look like Beyonce on a luxury yacht and wave to the common folk as they pass me on their row boats! Just kidding but not really. I decided to surprise my wonderful hubby James with a Luxury Sailing Adventure to see the Arches.
I logged onto Viator and purchased our tickets. Viator is my go-to tour and sightseeing website when I am traveling.
The tour bus picked us up from the Sheraton Los Cabos. It was a quick drive to where we would be boarding our luxury sailing adventure along with about 10 other couples. I thought it would be maybe 2 other couples but hey for $85.00 what did I really expect?
We were a group of 14 and it was just enough people because we saw another large party boat pass us and they were packed in like sardines!
This was much more private and luxurious. Shortly after leaving the dock, we were greeted with Mimosas and appetizers.
After we checked in and provided the Viator pass we boarded the 50-foot stylish sailboat and begin our adventure. I have traveled all over the world and Los Cabos is just stunning! As we sailed past Lover’s Beach I was disappointed in myself that I had ever been apprehensive about traveling to Mexico.
We sank into the soft cushioned seats and greeted with Mimosas as we admired the spectacular scenery. The staff was absolutely wonderful and made sure our cocktails were refilled immediately! We were offered beer, wine, cocktails, and softs drinks just in case we needed something other than alcohol.
If you are looking for adventure in Los Cabos here are my top adventure activities for couples:

- Baja Ranch and Camel Safari
Baja Ranch and Camel Safari
We started our adventure with a camel ride along the beach to discover the coastal scenery of the Baja peninsula on an incredible 4-hour tour from the Sheraton Los Cabos.
A camel might not be the first animal that comes to mind when you picture your Mexican luxury vacation, but the Baja Ranch and Camel Safari through Viator Tours is the perfect way to explore the desert and fascinating ecosystem of the Baja outback.
Before the camels and tequila, our guide lead us on a scenic nature walk through the desert where I learned how to survive if I were in a plane crash and landed in some unknown part of the country where I would need to know which plants to avoid and which ones I could use for food and water.
Look! I don’t do bugs or reptiles and so when we ran across a spider Y’all know I became an award-winning actress!
After our quick lesson on surviving in the desert, we hopped into an open-air, off-roading vehicle for a ride across the sands for our next adventure the “Camel Ride”.
The moment I have been waiting for my entire life!
We were escorted through the desert and to the beach by the sexiest humpback camel with the most beautiful eyes I had ever seen.
We set out for a camel ride across a wide stretch of beach along the Pacific where we learned about camel behavior while looking out at the beautiful pacific ocean.
Camels are one of the friendliest and most loving animals you will ever meet. I completely lost track of time and got entranced by their gentle, peaceful and fun personalities.
Powder “the kissing camel” was super sweet. I was a tad nervous about putting the carrot in my mouth to feed her but Powder was so sweet and I was worried for absolutely no reason.
What could match a camel ride? Tequila!
After my date with the sexy humpback, we made our way to a local ranch to refuel over lunch. Savor traditional Mexican dishes including fresh tortillas and authentic salsas. Best
Our tour concluded with a tequila tasting and after a long day of learning about desert and camels, I needed a beverage. I didn’t have too many shots because tequila will have me questioning my whole existence.
In addition to tasting the tequilas, we learned all about the production and different varieties of the fiery Mexican libation which left me feeling like I had grown hair on my chest.
