Things to See and Do in Los Cabos
I learned there are WAAAY more things to see and do in Los Cabos than what I thought. Los Cabos, the capes, is really several destinations in one. There’s San Jose del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas and the 20 mile Corridor which connects the two towns. Most of the more than 30 miles of gorgeous beaches are not swimmable because the currents are too strong where the Pacific and Sea of Cortez meet. If swimming in the ocean is of the upmost importance to you, the hotels of Medano Beach are where you should stay. That said, the resorts located on the other beaches are some of the most beautiful and luxurious in the world. They have some of the most spectacular pools I’ve ever seen and most of them are on beaches that can be walked forever. It’s a playground of the celebrities for relaxation and fun. If it’s good enough for them, then it is good enough for me!
Golf enthusiasts will LOVE it here, it rarely rains. Cabo boasts 350 rain free days a year with winter temperatures in the 80s. Though the environment is a subtropical desert, many of the world class courses have holes with picturesque views of the Sea of Cortez. Reservations for tee times are highly recommended. Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort and Spa
even has a dedicated golf concierge.
Cabo is such a relaxing destination! Spend the day at one of the many spas, most have signature treatments. The spa at the Marquis Los Cabos is a holistic spa. I had the pleasure of experiencing my first Aromatica massage here. I chose lavender as the essential oil to fill my senses and massaged into my body. It creates a greater sense of relaxation, relieves stress and helps restore the natural balance between the mind and body. I definitely needed this after a jam packed long weekend of site inspections and activities. All I can say is, “Mission Accomplished”!
Los Cabos is rich in cultural heritage. There are more art galleries than you can shake a stick at in San Jose Del Cabo! Not to be missed is the Art Walk on Thursday nights, November-May, in the historic art district. Galleries are open late with paintings, sculptures and works of arts in various media available for viewing and purchase. After the Art Walk there are plenty of restaurants in the area. An evening topped with a fine dining experience at La Panga Antigua
would make the end to a perfect day!
Cabo is a nature and adventure lover’s paradise. Zoetry Casa Del Mar
is honored as one of three hotels designated as a protected Olive Ridley sea turtle hatching ground by the federal government. There are 20 other hotels working with PROFEPA, an environmental protection agency to watch and rescue the turtle eggs. There’s zip lining and repelling in the UNESCO World Heritage Site Boca de Sierra Biosphere Reserve. An ATV or dune buggy adventure with Baja Buggys
is a fun way to spend the day too. With the desert, ocean and mountains there sure is plenty to explore!
A beach vacation wouldn’t be complete without spending time on the water. Take a boat ride over to Playa del Amor- Lover’s Beach, be sure to pass by El Arco -the famous rock formation jetting out of the sea, you may even catch sea lions basking in the sun. I enjoyed America’s Cup
experience from Cabo Adventures. I boarded an authentic America’s Cup racing yacht, learned how to perform tacking and jibing, grinding the winch, trimming the sails and actually competed in a racing match well, sort of- I watched while my friends did the work! In Cabo there’s diving, whale watching, sunset cruises, wave runners, kayaking,surfing. THE place to see and be seen in Cabo is Passion Club. Dress to impress and enjoy open air dining at Nikki Beach before the party starts! There are so many things to see and do in Los Cabos, there’s never a dull moment unless you want there to be!
I would like to thank the Mexico Tourism Board and the Los Cabos CVB
for their invitation to learn about Los Cabos. I also want to thank those listed above for their hospitality during this trip. I am a professional travel agent and these are my honest opinions and experiences.
