Where is El Arco de Cabo San Lucas in Forza Horizon 5?


Mexico is full of iconic landmarks, both physical and man-made, and many of them are in the huge map of Forza Horizon 5 but where is El Arco de Cabo San Lucas?

This natural arch of ancient stone is a tourist hotspot and is faithfully represented in Forza Horizon 5. The only problem? It is tricky to find.

Where is El Arco de Cabo San Lucas in Forza Horizon 5?

The Forza Horizon 5 map is massive, so even the biggest and best pieces of the Mexican landscape can feel hidden from you. When it comes to El Arco de Cabo San Lucas though, that is definitely the case! There are no roads taking you right to this coastal location, and with no boats in Forza Horizon 5 you can't exactly take that route.

While El Arco de Cabo San Lucas is labelled on the map it is tucked away on the west coast of the map.

The best way to get there is to travel to the Buenas Vistas player house and then drop down onto the beach. If you turn right and drive along the beach keeping the water on your left you will eventually reach a small spur of land where the arch is!
