Whale-watch, dive deep and explore Cabo San Lucas
Piercing turquoise waters and toe-warming sands await you in the resort of Cabo San Lucas in Mexico. Long stretches of coastline and spectacular rock ridges make up this southerly tip of the Baja California peninsula, with exciting traditional celebrations throughout the year, such as Dia de los Muertos and the Sabor a Cabo food festival. Dive beneath the waves to see sea turtles in their natural surroundings, cruise along the Los Cabos corridor to reach the literal “Land' End,” El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, or just recline on Medano Beach with a frozen drink in your hand.
Things to see and do
Sea turtles and whale-watching
Cabo's local conservationists focus on the safety of baby turtles, and if you come between August and December, you may have the chance to assist during a baby turtle release! Visit Mexico in December through March, and you'll get to see whales migrating.
Charter boats in the area organize whale-watching expeditions that get you up close to humpbacks, gray whales and the shimmering shoals of the Sea of Cortez.
For snorkeling, go to Santa Maria Bay. The bay's snorkeling area is conveniently located just off the beach, and while you're underwater, you'll have the chance to hang out with tropical fish, rays and sea turtles.
Take an art tour
To absorb some of the region's culture, wander down Valle Alvaro Obregon. As you mosey around, keep an eye out for paintings and distinct stone carvings. A day trip to the nearby artist community of Todos Santos is another cultural sightseeing adventure.
Rare souvenirs are sold in a number of San Jose del Cabo shops. Handicrafts, interesting trinkets and regional clothing items are just a few of your options for one-off souvenirs. For a bigger selection, stop by the Puerto Paraiso mall in Cabo San Lucas.
Live it up at this pumping complex of bars and nightclubs clustered in the Downtown area, part of a US-Mexican chain created by rock star Sammy Hagar. Cabo Wabo Cantina is the nerve center, where you'll find band gigs and club-style fiestas on most nights, with an amped-up program during the summer.
Cabo San Lucas hotels are located in both social and private locales, and prices ranges from $60 if you stay a little out of the center, right up to $400 for an all-inclusive hotel. If you prefer to meet the locals and engage with other travelers, book your reservation by the marina and choose a bustling, active hotel like Sandos Finisterra Los Cabos.
Alternatively, you'll get a quiet, secluded vacation spot if you stay further up the coast to the west or east of Bahia San Lucas, where private beaches are the order of the day. Just the two of you? Consider the Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort and Spa for an adults-only stay, and revel in the freedom of swimming in landscaped, cactus-lined pools, easing your stress away in the hot tub without interruptions
Bisbee's Black and Blue
In Cabo, it's easy to test your fishing skills against other professional anglers. The sport can supplement your income if you enter one of Bisbee's Black and Blue Tournaments, but to do so, you'll have to visit in July or August. The angling contests are especially rich events since more than $60 million in prize money has been awarded over the years.
Mexican Independence Day
During the month of September, Mexican Independence Day is celebrated. Guests who are there for the occasion get to view parades, dance to live music and participate in the shout of independence.
Sabor a Cabo
Restaurant group CANIRAC Los Cabos organizes this food fest, providing a smorgasbord of Mexican delicacies around November every year. Chefs of international fame like Makato Okamoto cook up a storm, while Baja cuisine gets pride of place, along with wines from the wider region.
