There are many beach destinations in Mexico to choose from, but Los Cabos is one of our favorites. As with Cancun, it’s sometimes hard to overlook the spring break aspect of Mexico’s beach resorts, but I assure you there is a much more civilized aspect of Los Cabos that you don’t want to miss.
Los Cabos comprises two distinct areas along the southern tip of the Baha Peninsula: Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Although the two areas are within 20 minutes of each other, they are very different in style and substance. There are many Los Cabos activities to participate in.
Cabo San Lucas is the rowdier, more adventurous one, while San Jose del Cabo is more subdued and cultured. Of course, if you want to be sure to avoid the spring break crowds and craziness that comes along with it, visit any other time but March or April.
No matter where you choose to vacation in Los Cabos, you’ll be within close proximity of the many activities that make the area one you really can’t miss. Here are our five favorite things to do in Cabo San Lucas and further afield.
Be sure to check out our beach packing list to make sure you’ve got everything you need for your trip to the beach.

How to Get to Los Cabos
Getting to Los Cabos, a resort city on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California peninsula, typically involves flying there, especially for international visitors. You can consider long-distance buses or driving to Los Cabos, but these options take significantly longer and will eat into your vacation time.
I prefer to fly into Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), which the nearest airport. Most major airlines, including American, Delta, Southwest, United, and many international carriers, provide direct or connecting flights to Los Cabos from various cities around the world.
Once you arrive in Los Cabos, you’ll have a number of options for reaching your final destination. Rental cars, taxis, and airport shuttles are available for transport to hotels and resorts in the area. Some resorts also offer their own shuttle service.
Make sure you have a valid passport. Depending on your country of origin, you may also need a tourist visa. Check the Mexican embassy or consulate in your country for more information.

However, the beach is a popular spot for surfers and bodyboarders. You can also take a short hike to the nearby Lover’s Beach, which is a secluded cove that is perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Lover’s Beach is a secluded cove that is only accessible by boat.

Discover the History & Art of San Jose del Cabo
Staying in San Jose del Cabo has its perks. Not only is it quieter and more subdued in this part of Los Cabos, it is where you’ll find a lot of Los Cabos’ fascinating history and art culture. In the plaza is the San Jose del Cabo Church, one of the top attractions in town. The church and its predecessors have a long history that you can learn about on site.
You probably don’t expect to find such a vibrant art culture in a small town like San Jose del Cabo. Some very well-known Mexican artists have their work on display throughout the galleries in town. There’s even an art walk that takes place every Thursday from November to June. There are also evening music and dance performances in the plaza in the summer.

The waters around Cabo San Lucas are home to a diverse range of whale species, including humpback whales, gray whales, and even blue whales. From December through April, these gentle giants migrate to the nutrient-rich waters of the Sea of Cortez from Alaska, making it the perfect time to see them up close.
There are many whale watching tours available in Cabo San Lucas, and each one offers a unique perspective on these magnificent creatures. Some tours are led by marine biologists who can provide detailed information about the whales and their behavior, while others offer the chance to listen to the whales’ songs through a hydrophone.
One of the best things about whale watching in Cabo San Lucas is that you don’t have to venture far from shore to see the whales. In fact, some tours leave right from the marina in downtown Cabo San Lucas. This means that even if you’re short on time, you can still fit in a whale watching tour and see these amazing creatures in their natural habitat.
During the tour, you’ll have the opportunity to see the whales breach, spout, and play in the water. Some tours even offer the chance to snorkel with the whales, giving you a truly immersive experience. Just be sure to follow the guidelines set by the Mexican government’s Marine Mammal Protection Program to ensure that you’re not disturbing the whales or their habitat.

Indulge in the Baja Food Scene
You’ll find many restaurants and bars in Cabo San Lucas that will satisfy your hunger for authentic Mexican food. We love the many street taco stands that line the streets. A taco crawl is a great way to spend an afternoon.
But there’s more to this area than just street food and all-inclusive resort restaurants. A few top chefs have married innovative techniques together with incredible local ingredients to excite the palate. Seafood, caught fresh daily is at the top of the list, and so is El Farallon Restaurant, in The Resort at Pedregal, run by Chef Miriam Jimenez. The views are spectacular. It’s definitely a meal you won’t soon forget.
For a way more laid-back experience, put your feet in sand and walk along the beach to The Office on the Beach on Playa el Medano. It’s a casual hangout, with great food, good cocktails, and a fun atmosphere. Just a note, though – you probably don’t want to go there during spring break unless you’re really ready to party.
Another thing we love to do is food tours. The Eat Like A Local Cabo Food Tour is a 3-hour tour where you’ll visit five different spots serving some of the region’s best food and also enjoy a mezcal tasting experience.

Parasailing & Snorkeling in Cabo

Parasailing opportunities can be found on Playa el Medano. There are vendors selling tickets for a 10-minute ride. You can book in advance online, or just show up and get a slot (which can be difficult if it’s really busy). You can also book in advance with Cabo Expeditions.
Just a short drive away from Cabo San Lucas, you’ll find the small cove of Playa Santa Maria. This is a peaceful beach that offers great snorkeling, along with the chance to rent kayaks. If you’re lucky, the beach won’t be crowded either. Another great option is Playa Empacadora, also known as Cannery Beach.
Another way to enjoy good snorkeling in Los Cabos is to book a snorkeling cruise to Santa Maria Beach. Half-day tours include snorkeling equipment, paddle boards, an open bar and a tasty lunch.

Getting Around in Los Cabos
If you’re staying at an all-inclusive resort in Los Cabos, you might find that a lot of what you need is already available on-site, including dining, entertainment, and various activities. However, if you want to explore more of the region, there are several options for getting around like taxis and rideshares.
Always check with your hotel concierge or front desk for the best and safest options. They can provide up-to-date information and help arrange transportation. And remember, always prioritize your safety, especially when using transportation late at night.
You can rent a car from the airport or from some hotels, if you’re comfortable navigating the roads. You’ll have to park at the hotel, which will likely incur another charge, but you’ll be able to go out and explore.
One thing to remember when renting a car in Mexico is that your U.S. car insurance typically won’t cover you unless you buy extra insurance, called Mexico tourist auto insurance or Mexican car insurance. When you’re at the counter, you can’t refuse the insurance as you might in other places.
Depending on where you’re staying, like right on the beach in Cabo San Lucas, you might just be able to walk everywhere you want to go. You can also book excursions to go do things like whale watching and sunset cruises.
Once you see it for yourself, you’ll see why we love these Los Cabos activities, and the beauty that surrounds this area. Have you been to Los Cabos? Tell us your favorite things to do there. Like this post? Why not save it to your Pinterest board!
