A signature landmark of Los Cabos, El Arco de Cabo San Lucas—known locally as simply “El Arco” or “the Arch”—is a limestone arch carved by time, tide, and wind.
The natural attraction runs runs down to the water’s edge at Land’s End, the southern tip of Cabo San Lucas (which itself is at the southern end of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula) and into the Sea of Cortez.
From a distance, the rock formation looks like a dragon; up close, the arch frames sky, sea, and sand for prime photos.
However, a group of scientists from the Autonomous University of Baja California Sur, determined that the “Arco” is in a constant process of erosion that eventually will produce the collapse of this iconic structure. According to the academics from UABCS this could in a matter of years.
