Are you and your girlfriends trying to decide where to take a vacation? Cabo has everything from fun clubs to relaxing beaches, making it the perfect choice.
Are you and your friends looking for some fun in the sun? Do you love the feel of the ocean waves washing across your feet? Do you have a sense for real adventure? Are you ready to see all the beauty the Pacific Coast has to offer? If so, then set sail for Cabo San Lucas, a jewel of the West Coast and the perfect place for your next getaway.
World-famous ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau once described Cabo as the “world’s aquarium.” You can enjoy year-round snorkeling both at Cabo San Lucas as well as at the nearby Cabo Pulmo Marine Park.
Here you may watch hundreds of plants and animals along the coral reef. This reef is a scientific wonder and a national treasure of Mexico. The tropical fish found here include balloonfish, trumpetfish, Cortez angelfish, and moray eels.
These and many more are prolific in the calm waters of the Sea of Cortez. Sail out to either Santa Maria or Chileno Bay, and dive into the beautiful waters of the Pacific Ocean for some incredible snorkeling adventures on your trip to Cabo.
City Tours and Lunch
Cabo San Lucas is filled with dazzling sights, enchanting sounds, and rich flavors from many cultures. You can take a guided tour of the city and watch the city artisans at work. There are skilled glass blowers who make gorgeous works of art and talented weavers who create detailed blankets from bright and colorful local textiles. You may find a beautiful souvenir to pick up to give as a gift or to keep as a precious memory of your trip.
After that, you can take a glass-bottom-boat to ride out to see the natural rock formations around the city while you watch the fish swim under your feet. The water is bright blue, and you can see the local landmarks such as Lover’s Beach, the Arch, and Land’s End from near the place the Sea of Cortez connects with the Pacific Ocean.
When you return to land, you can enjoy a lunch of exquisite traditional Mexican cuisine at one of the historic city center’s restaurants. You can also see some fantastic landscapes from El Mirador, the lookout point over the shoreline, as well as stopping in the San Jose historical center to learn more about the heritage and culture of Los Cabos.
You can take a yacht out for a more luxurious tour either morning, midday, or at sunset. These cruises leave the marina and make their way toward Lover’s Beach and the Arch. You will have opportunities for snorkeling in the bays as well.
All of these tours are reasonably priced and include a small meal and open bar. The crews serve high-end drinks and cocktails to help you further relax and enjoy the incredible views of one of Mexico’s most magnificent coastlines.
A fair warning for the faint of heart: if you choose to go for a Sunset cruise, you will be faced with one of the most amazingly colorful sunsets you will ever see. You may never want to go home again.
More Land-Based Adventures
For the more active land-lovers, there are plenty of activities to fill your days. Cabo offers incredible golf courses for your sporty friends. If you are feeling the thirst for even greater adventure and want to do some exploring off the beaten path, there are camel safaris in the wilderness that take you into the Baja desert. There among the local people, you will have the opportunity to learn to make tortillas and to experience some authentic tequila tasting.
If your desert safari is not enough adventure for you, you can soar over Cabo on one of their ziplines, catching the beauty of this incredible place from on high.
If you happen to be visiting in the winter, don’t miss your chance to go on a whale-watching tour. December through March, the Sea of Cortez is populated by Grey and Humpback Whales.
These whales seek warmer waters during the colder months and follow the food supply down the Pacific Coastline.
These tours, as well as all the others, are typically three hours long and include at least a light meal and unlimited bar, served by the ship’s crew.
Don’t spend another vacation at a boring beach. Cabo has all the sand and waves that you could ever want, and it has so much more. With its rich culture and history, the scientific wonder of the coral reefs, the opportunities to explore both desert and underwater paradise, and more authentic Mexican food and drink than you can handle, Cabo is the place to go to getaway and make some incredible memories with your friends.
