With age often comes more free time to have fun and explore. Here are some great options senior visitors to Cabo might enjoy!
With more free time, and often some expendable income, it’s not surprising that senior travelers make up a large proportion of modern vacationers. With sun, sand, sea, and stunning vistas, it’s no wonder why so many mature adventures choose Cabo as their holiday destination. But what activities are available when you’re in your later years?
In this article we’ll be looking at some of the best and most popular options Cabo has to offer for its senior visitors.
On the Water
Without a doubt what Cabo is best known for, there’s no reason why you cannot enjoy a whale watching tour, no matter your age.
Though best viewed from November to mid-December to coincide with the calving of Humpback whales, Cabo is visited by many breeds of these ocean giants year-round, so no matter when you take your trip, you’re bound to have a once in a lifetime experience.
As a mature traveler, dependent on your physical mobility, even though the tour ships provide comfortable seating, you may wish to bring a cushion to help give you the specific support and comfort you need.
Also, if your vision isn’t at its best, bringing binoculars can help you get a clear view of your amazing ocean encounter.
Cabo also offers a whole range of cruising options, allowing you to explore the Sea of Cortez in supreme comfort at a leisurely pace.
With tours in the morning for early birds, or those who require a midday siesta, afternoons for those preferring a slower start, and even sunset cruises for the night owls among us, Cabos sailing options are able to perfectly fit around your lifestyle and itinerary.
For senior travelers, being mindful to remain hydrated and protected from the sun is important. It can often be easy to forget these things when basking on a luxury cruise, but factors such as bad sunburn, dehydration, and heat stroke can completely ruin a holiday.
Therefore, make sure you stay hydrated, top up the sunscreen, and take regular breaks in the shade during your ocean adventure. Being aware of the early signs of heat stroke such as; headaches, nausea, and dizziness, is also useful to be aware of.
If you’re a more active individual, then you may feel up for a snorkeling trip. Cabo is home to a plethora of aquatic life including hundreds of individual species of fish.
Through snorkeling you will be able to discover the Sea of Cortez’ hidden underwater world, and get up close and personal with the creatures that call the water their home.
Snorkeling is also a great gentle, all over body exercise. The water supports your weight, and thus removes pressure on joints, meaning while you explore, your body is simultaneously being exercised, leaving you feeling refreshed and rejuvenated when you exit the water.
With a duration of 2-3 hours, and trips taking place throughout the day, snorkeling is perfect for those on stricter time-impacted medication regimes, as well as a variety of itineraries.
Exploring Dry Land
Cabo offers many golf courses, many of which are easily accessible. Providing gentle exercise and a fun activity for you and your fellow travelers, golfing also offers an unexpected opportunity to encounter some of the indigenous wildlife and fauna.
Remember again to remain hydrated, and seek shade where possible as you put your way to victory!
There are a whole host of shops and scenery to explore in downtown Cabo. You can discover a whole host of local foods at the many restaurants, or enjoy a wine or two at one of Cabo’s many bars.
As you pick up a souvenir or two for the kids or grandkids, you may even spy more of Cabos bountiful fauna, including hummingbirds, iguanas, desert falcons, and even the rare ring-tailed cat.
San Jose Estuary
A little ways in-land you’ll find the must-visit San Jose estuary. Home to hundreds of birds, including some rare and endangered species, and amidst wonderful scenery, you’ll be bound to take incredible photos of these elegant creatures.
If you’re a keen bird watcher back home, seeing the variety of tropical and coastal birds is sure to be a real treat!
