If you’re looking for some ways to relax on your Cabo vacation, you have plenty of options available. Check out some of these relaxing activities in Cabo San Lucas.
Some people enjoy an active vacation — they want to get out there and ride the waves, hike the terrain, and explore all the hidden nooks and crannies of the great outdoors. But not everyone enjoys that, and that’s okay!
Thankfully, Cabo has a little bit of everything, so if you’re more interested in relaxation than adventure, Cabo San Lucas has you covered. Whether you want pampering or just want to enjoy some low-key time in nature, Cabo has you covered.
Below are some of the most relaxing spots in Cabo you might want to check out on your vacation.
As beautiful as Cabo is, there’s no denying the fact that it is a tourist town, and as such, the beaches tend to be very lively, sometimes to the point of being crowded.
That doesn’t always make for a very relaxing experience, but there are a few lesser-known locations you can head to in order to enjoy a little peace and quiet.
Some of the more secluded beaches you might consider are listed below.
- Bahia Santa Maria is a protected nature sanctuary less than ten miles from Cabo San Lucas. The beach is safe for swimming and ideal for snorkeling, and surrounded by rocky cliffs that make for a beautiful background.
- Las Viudas is another nearby beach. This location has a secluded feeling thanks to all of the rocks scattered about; they are large and scattered, creating private nooks all over the beach for you to enjoy with your family.
- Migrino beach is a beautiful location outside of Cabo San Lucas. It is important to note that this beach is not suitable for swimming, but the beautiful views and its lesser-known status make it perfect for just relaxing on the shore.
There’s not much that’s more relaxing than watching a beautiful sunset, and there are plenty of places to get a great view of one in Cabo. However, arguably the most relaxing option is a sunset cruise.
The gentle swells of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez provide a peaceful backdrop to the beautiful views you’ll enjoy as the sun sets over the open water.
With an open bar, available snacks, and options for a private or shared cruise, enjoying a sunset out on the water is one of the best ways to relax in Cabo.
Relax at the Spa
With so much focus on relaxing in Cabo, there’s no real surprise that there are quite a few spas in the area, ready and waiting to cater to those looking to be pampered while they relax. Plenty of resorts have on-site spas that you can easily get to without ever having to leave your hotel.
Other options include spas with certain specialties that you might enjoy, such as organic products, holistic treatments, anti-aging programs, and even spiritual ceremonies.
For those who find the presence of animals relaxing, Cabo has horseback tours across gorgeous beaches and desert hills to meet your needs. Most of these tours come with a brief riding lesson and are led by a guide, so they can be enjoyed by new and experienced riders alike. The rides are generally slow and gentle, with no galloping or exertion required, making them a nice, relaxing way to see the beautiful landscapes in and around Cabo.
See the Sights — Underwater
There is so much to see in Cabo that it can be easy to forget that you’re right next to a completely different world that you can’t see unless you get in there! The sheer amount of wildlife that you can see underwater year-round in Cabo is downright astonishing. There are lots of great snorkeling spots to choose from, and with tours guided by trained professionals, you never have to worry about your personal safety or comfort.
Whether you’re wanting to spend your whole vacation relaxing or just want to take a break in between more adventurous pursuits, Cabo has plenty of relaxing pastimes you can enjoy on land or sea. Plan ahead, pack accordingly, and enjoy the time you have to relax and unwind in one of the most beautiful locations on Earth.
