Feel carefree in Los Cabos
Powder-soft sand, dazzling blue waters and endless sunshine are what you’ll discover in this tropical oasis
Located on the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula is the picturesque Los Cabos—a region comprised primarily of the cities San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, with a 20-mile stretch of beautiful beaches between them. Whether you are seeking adventure on the waves, want to relax at a luxurious spa or are looking to enjoy delicious Mexican cuisine, Los Cabos has a little something for every taste.
Begin your escape by basking in the sun at Medano Beach in Cabo
San Lucas, a spot known for its water sports, friendly vendors and various ocean-side treats. “Silver, gifts and pottery were all brought to us as we relaxed in a beach chair and were served our favorite drinks,” said Cathy B on TripAdvisor.com. “Loved this!”
To marvel at the aquatic beauty of the region, take the 20-minute drive northeast to snorkel at Chileno Beach.
“The calm waters are teeming with beautiful creatures,” says BFB56 on TripAdvisor.com. “A huge variety of animals including dazzling fish, manta rays, eels and an occasional whale make the experience eye-opening.”
After toweling off, drive another 20 minutes northeast to observe local customs and architecture at the San José del Cabo Church in the historic San José district. “We enjoyed the views of the square from the entrance, and the gardens surrounding the church just add to its beauty,” says a reviewer from Michigan. “Plus, the artwork and stained-glass inside do not disappoint.”
End your day by exploring the rest of the charming San José del Cabo main square, where you can visit quaint shops and galleries, listen to live music, enjoy free salsa dance lessons, savor fresh churros and ice cream and admire the picturesque sunset.
Don’t miss: Wild Canyon Adventures
Explore the natural wonders of Mexico with a visit to Wild Canyon Adventure Park ($55 and up per person) located in the San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas corridor. There, you can zip-line through the canyon, enjoy a ride on camel, bungee jump from a glass-bottom gondola and marvel at the view from the world’s longest wooden pedestrian bridge.
Great day trip: Todos Santos
Take a drive 50 minutes north for a relaxed day in the laid-back town of Todos Santos. Learn about sea turtle conservation at Tortugueros Las Playitas, shop at one of the many galleries and bodegas or swim the waters of Playa Los Cerritos.
