Plaza Amelia Wilkes Cabo
Downtown, Cabo San Lucas, Los Cabos, Baja California Sur, México.
Plaza Amelia Wilkes is a quaint plaza with beautiful Gardens located in the heart of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur. It owes its name to the famous head Amelia Wilkes Ceseña, who gave his life to the strengthening of our roots and history as heads.
It has lush trees, flowers, places to sit and enjoy the afternoon with family, couple, etc. In this same park is located the Museum of Natural History of Cabo San Lucas, great attraction of the city that works to conserve and to spread the roots of the Sudcalifornianos. The Natural History Museum or Museo de Historia Natural of Cabo San Lucas was founded on October 9, 2006.
The Amelia Wilkes Plaza is available to everyone who wants to visit and enjoy every day of the year, it is a public space made especially for the enjoyment of all the locals and tourists. If you are lucky you will enjoy the traditional Kermess made by some groups from Cabo San Lucas where you can enjoy delicious Mexican food, typical choyera food (this is how the locals of Los Cabos are known) and lots of fun.
Across the street from Amelia Wilkes Square you will find the very famous Iglesia San Lucas Evangelista, or Church of St. Luke the Evangelist.
