As one of Mexico’s most luxurious destinations, Cabo San Lucas is the perfect place for stunning walks on the beach, dining on outdoor patios and relaxing by the pool at high-end resorts.
When traveling in such a magnificent place, it’s easy to make the most of your trip. Here are a few things to remember when traveling to the tip of Baja.
1. Stay at a Luxury Resort in Cabo San Lucas
The world-class resorts found in Cabo San Lucas provide an amazing experience for nearly all who travel there.
Many of the waterfront hotels have their own private beaches, limiting the number of people invading the area and ensuring that guests are able to truly enjoy their experience.
Cabo San Lucas resorts are also home to some of the most fabulous swimming pools and poolside service—making it easy to grab a treat to enjoy as you soak up the Mexican sun.
2. Take to the Water
Since Cabo San Lucas is located on a peninsula, there is water everywhere. Take advantage and get out on the water. With kayaks, paddleboards, glass bottom boats, wave runners and even parasailing, there are so many ways to take to the water.
Whale watching is a fun pastime in Baja California, as gray whales migrate straight past the peninsula—and sometimes right into its lagoons.
For those that seek adventure, Cabo is a great surf spot. Though it’s not ideal for beginners, those that have some experience can catch some fantastic waves along the Cabo Corridor.
There is also a nearby marine park that offers colorful coral reefs full of sea life that are perfect for snorkeling or scuba diving. Though this is a little further away, it’s an amazing day trip for those on a luxury holiday in Cabo.
3. Keep Your Eyes Open—The Sights are Incredible
The landscapes surrounded Cabo—and the tip of Baja California in general—are stunning. The strange blend of desert and deep blue ocean create an interesting setting and the temperate climate ensures that the weather is nearly always spectacular.
For an impressive sight, take a boat to the end of the peninsula where you’ll spot El Arco, a sea arch that marks the place where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Other stunning sights include Pelican’s Colony, Pirate’s Beach and Lover’s Beach.
Maximize on the romantic nature of the city with a sunset cruise that will showcase the vibrant purple, pink and orange hues that litter the Cabo skies at the end of the day.
4. Find Plenty of Ways to Relax While On Your Tropical Vacation
Part of the appeal of a tropical vacation is the tranquil atmosphere. Let your worries float away as you take in the sights and sounds of Cabo.
The ambiance is different than that of mainland Mexico; it feels much more like a unique, international destination than other parts of the country. Whether on the beach or by the pool, there are so many spots to unwind.
While being outdoors in Mexico is the goal, you can’t pass up a trip to the spa at one of many Cabo resorts. From chocolate body wraps and cucumber lime facials to traditional full-body massages, there are a variety of treatments to choose from—all of which will enhance your trip and level of relaxation.
