Cabo San Lucas is one of Mexico’s premier playgrounds. Considering the competition within this delightful country, that’s a high honor indeed. Fantastic fishing, unparalleled beaches, stellar scuba diving, and much more await any traveler here.
Diving doesn’t have to be done by putting equipment on. You can do it by getting in equipment instead of taking a submarine trip. Spend half an hour exploring beneath the crystal clear green surface of Cabo’s waters in a yellow semi-submersible. Since there’s no pressurization, there’s no delay getting up or down. Just pure excitement as you view the wonders of the sea.
Then, take a day trip to one of Cabo’s lesser-known highlights: Todos Santos. Virtually unchanged from the days near the end of the 19th century when it was a sugar cane milling town, it now features dozens of local artists and other delights.
Your Todos tour takes you down the Baja Peninsula for a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. Along the way, you’ll get a chance to spot migrating Gray Whales and to see the spectacular Sierra Madre mountain range. When you arrive, visit the anthropological museum or browse some of the local galleries for authentic Mexican curios.
Didn’t sight any Gray Whales on the trip? Not to worry. The Magdalena Bay tour takes you directly to the spot where the mothers come to calve. Drive toward the Sanctuary in an air-conditioned 12-passenger van and get the view of a lifetime in complete comfort. Then board a small panga boat and you’ll soon be in the middle of the whales’ territory.
Did you come to Cabo for a touch of romance? You couldn’t have a better chance to find it than on a sunset cruise. Board the boat and watch the silhouette of the skyline over El Arco. See Cabo San Lucas from the water, then glance over to see that special person watching you.
Found the one you’re looking for? Great. Go horseback riding along the El Medano beach near Los Cabos. The sunshine gleams off the water only minutes from your hotel. Ride in the morning, or at sunset, or even in the middle of a hot, hot day then take a dip in the pool before dinner.
Whether alone or with your loved one, or even with a large group, a trip to Cabo offers nothing better than a visit to the capital city of La Paz. You’ll journey back in time 300 years to the days not long after the conquistadors.
On the way there, you stop at El Triunfo, a turn of the century silver mining town. When you arrive, you can visit the 18th-century Cathedral, then stroll around the main plaza to shop for Mexican handicrafts. The lunch with an ocean view is alone worth the trip.
You may want to visit Cabo San Lucas to dive, cruise, horseback ride, tour historic sights, or just do nothing at all but soak up the sun. Whichever is your preference, you’re guaranteed a vacation like none other.
