Cruise organized excursion
The pros are that it will go along with the cruise schedule perfectly. Without interfering with your departure or arrival times, it’s a great way to make the best of Los Cabos without worrying too much about times. These excursions usually start after you arrive at Los Cabos marina from the cruise, and they just take it from there. No rush, no worries. But, now for the bad part, is that most of these excursions are not included in your cruise package and are often expensive, of course, you won’t be the only one trying to enjoy this adventure and you’ll be running on the schedule of your tour guide for the rest of the day.
Searching the adventures for yourself can cause you some trouble, as you are dependent on the times the cruise allows you, and the schedules the excursion offers.

But, if you are on the adventurous side, always making the best with what you have, this is definitely an amazing option that will fit you perfectly. The costs self-booking your tours are definitely lower and you have way more options to choose from.

Glass-bottom boat ride
This is one of the most recommended activities for visitors. For $10 per person, you can take a tour to Lover’s Beach an outstanding hideaway for everyone on the adventurous side.

If asked, the boat captain can drop you off at Lovers Beach or at Medano Beach, but you’ll have to jump into the water to swim for a little bit before reaching these magical spots.
Stroll around town
After being dropped at the marina you can easily walk into town. Wander around, get lost and find yourself again! There are about hundreds of stores, cafes and places to be around. Prices are negotiable, people’s open to conversation and you are welcome to venture around. No better way to enjoy the local lifestyle than diving straight to it.
As you walk straight from the marina following the sea line, you’ll eventually get to one of the most beautiful beaches in Cabo: The Medano Beach. Just walk along and stop at any beach bar or restaurant that seems interesting. It’ll all depend on your likes as you can find some loud and busy places or just a quieter bar to sip on a beer. All of these places allow you to enjoy a beautiful view of the beach and its pristine waters. Ask for food and drinks, so you can use the beach chairs and restrooms without a problem. Water sport rentals are also available from several vendors on the beach. Or, if you prefer to shop effortless, just sit back and relax in your chair as the walking vendors pass by offering you a variety of products, without you having to move a finger!
