Cabo San Lucas Attraction Guide
Cabo San Lucas, with its nearly ideal climate during Spring Break high season, has a variety of activities to keep you busy and energized during the sunlit hours.
From parasailing above pristine beaches to cruising
among the amazing rock formations just off the coast, you and
your friends could do a different Cabo San Lucas attraction
every single day of the week. With activities both on the
beach and just away from it, you can stay amongst the crowds or
slip away for a more private experience!
Cabo ATV Rentals & Tours
Take an amazing 25 mile journey through the area's ecological reserve, via a network of connecting trails. You will cross arroyos, traverse mountains and narrow canyons. Trails on the Cabo San Lucas attraction are well marked and completely away from public. We had a great time on our tour and highly recommend it to Spring Breakers who want to go beyond the beach and explore the Baja peninsula. We recommend Desert Park Tours, the owners and guides we both great, even for novice riders like us! (Check out the video on their web site for a sample of what you'll find.)
Cabo San Lucas Fishing
Cabo and sport fishing simply go hand-in-hand. Known as the "Marlin capital of the world," more of these big fish are caught here than anywhere else in the world, Cabo has numerous (and affordable) charter companies that will take you out and guarantee you a half of full day of fishing fun. You'll likely also see whales, dolphin, and seals while out on your charter. This is one of Cabo's claims to fame, so even novice fishermen will not want to miss the chance to fish these famous waters. Get a group together and bargain for a better-than-advertised price. Or, sign up as a single and meet some new friends through this Cabo San Lucas attraction. Food and drink are almost always included.
Surfing in Cabo San Lucas
Even if you've never tried it, surfing is a major pastime in Cabo. There are stretches of beach that offer plenty of lefts and curls, with little to no waiting time between sets. If you have no idea what that means, it's okay, because there is plenty of instruction available for a reasonable price. Go for either a half day or a whole day, you may just find yourself hooked. Most trips include instruction, surf wax and board rental, wet suit, round-trip transportation, and plenty of snacks. Be sure your instruction is bilingual. You should also be aware that most of the surfing beaches are not within the city limits of Los Cabos, so there will be a bit of a ride. It's well worth it, in our opinion for this Cabo San Lucas attraction. Try Baja Wild for beginners and those who just want to catch a wave.
Why not get beyond the beach and explore Cabo from the water? Numerous companies offer sunset cruises and infamous "booze cruises" around the peninsula and the famous rock formations. You and your friends can take the pictures that will make the pals back home jealous. It's also a great way to begin a pre-party before going out to Cabo's nightclubs. Look for numerous deals during Spring Break advertised in your hotel or out on the beach. For those looking for the extreme Cabo San Lucas attraction, you can even go out on a pirate ship.
Cabo San Lucas Shopping
for an authentic souvenir to take back to your dorm room?
How about some designer jewelry or clothing? Luckily, Cabo
has a nice mix of both and a variety of different shopping
experiences. While downtown offers more
authentic Mexican gifts, the relatively new Puerto Paraiso Mall
caters to shoppers with more expensive taste. Locally made
pottery and sterling silver jewelry are popular items for
tourists to take home, at often bargain prices.
Hit the Beach
You'll no doubt want to spend some part of your Cabo Spring Break down on the beautiful beaches this area offers. The beaches closest to you, however, will largely depend upon the hotel you choose. Many hotels are just outside of downtown and, therefore, have smaller beaches that do not connect to the more popular beaches in town. This is not to say these beaches are without a life of their own, you just need to be aware that a day trip to people-watch on the biggest beach might require a bit of transportation. Medano Beach is the major stretch of sand you'll find other parties at , while in Cabo. Check with your hotel to get the beach scene closest to you. The people watching at this Cabo San Lucas attraction is not to be missed!
Catching rays on the main beach in Cabo San Lucas is a people-watchers' dream. El Médano, a short walk from downtown, is also a mecca for watersports of all kinds. With usually calm waters, the bay activities are a spectator sport alone. Various watercraft cruise the beach, vying for position with the crowd. Water-skiers bob and twist, Waverunners race amongst waves, and parasailers scream from rainbow-colored chutes. In the distance, you'll find graceful kayaks gliding towards Land's End. Glass bottom boats shuttle revelers out to the arch, the end tip of Baja California's 1,000-mile long peninsula. You can do all of these Cabo San Lucas attractions and more, as your budget allows.
Cabo Scuba & Snorkeling
The waters that run along Cabo San Lucas are a marine sanctuary and home to schools of triggerfish, anglefish, goatfish, parrotfish, and more. There are plenty of coves and inlets along the coast for you to explore and photograph. Pick up a water-taxi at the Cabo San Lucas marina and ask to be taken to Lover's Beach, near the arch, where you can snorkel, dive or watch the sea lions. All eqipment is available for rental and no experience is required.
For those looking for an underwater Cabo San Lucas attraction, experience what Jacques Cousteau and other underwater adventurers have described as “The World’s Richest Sea-" the Sea of Cortez. The diversity in fish and marine mammals that congregate here is unmatched anywhere else in the earth’s ocean waters. Three major ocean currents collide here to create the unique and varied life that abounds in these fruitful waters. There are numerous dive operators available to choose among, and you'll find most to be friendly and accessible.
