Cabo San Lucas is a unique, fun destination, adored by everyone from A List Hollywood celebrities to family groups. Over 1,000,000 visitors arrived at Los Cabos International Airport last year to sample the land where the desert meets the sea.
If you are anticipating visiting between December and April, be aware that it’s whale season. The humpbacks migrate to the Sea of Cortez to start their families and enjoy the warm waters. The experience is like watching science in the real world, and you won’t get tested. There are many whale watching tours where you can observe all the activity. If you haven’t seen one of these extraordinary creatures, this is the time to do it.
Discover Authentic San Jose del Cabo
As a more workaday community, the pace is less busy and you can relax in the tree-filled plaza in the main part of town. Your family can have a pleasant meal during midday and savor the atmosphere of a non-resort destination. It is about 20 miles from Cabo San Lucas, and a whole different world. There are beaches, museums, and a dolphin encounter as well as many galleries in a fast growing Arts District. Follow artists from all over the world in many different mediums. Maybe find something to take home as a last memory of your perfect vacation. Between November and June, San Jose Del Cabo has an Art Walk every Thursday from 5 to 9pm. It’s easy to get there by rental car, taxi, tour bus, or local transit.
Hit the Seas on a 4-Hour Cruise
An enjoyable family outing to add to the vacation can be achieved by taking one of the many boat tours available on the Sea of Cortez, which is relatively calm as compared to the Pacific. Cabo Adventures, one of the tour operators, offers many choices from 2-10 hours in duration.
