10 Things To Do in Cabo:
#1 Medano Beach
Firstly, no visit to Cabo is complete without a visit to the area’s most popular beach, Medano Beach. Also known as Playa El Medano, Medano Beach is the center of Cabo San Lucas activities. There, you can find a great swimming beach and many luxury resorts. There are also tons of palapa-shaded cantinas and beachfront restaurants so it’s a great place to enjoy a nice meal with views. If you’re wanting to get active during your vacation, Medano Beach is a great place to rent kayaks, wave runners or book a parasailing tour.
#2 Land’s End & El Arco Rock Formations
Next, Land’s End is another not miss attraction to visit in the area. Land’s End Rock Formation is three stories tall and was formed as the result of natural erosion that was formed around 270 million years ago. In addition, El Arco is another notable rock formation that rises up from the sea at the very tip of the Baja California Peninsula. There, El Arco also marks the spot where the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortez come together. The Arch is adjacent to Lovers Beach on the Sea of Cortez side and Divorce Beach on the rougher Pacific Ocean side. The impressive natural landmarks are best viewed from a glass bottomed boat tour.
#3 Go Whale Watching
Also, if you find yourself in Baja during the winter months, make sure to go whale watching. From November through January, humpback whales migrate through the area as they travel to warm waters to mate and birth their young. Sometimes, you can even catch a glimpse of whales breaching from the beach. Book a whale watching tour to take a boat out to sea to get the best views of humpback whales playing and swimming with other whales. Whale watching is a popular Cabo activity that never gets old.
#4 Swim with Whale Sharks
Similarly, Cabo is one of the only places in the world that you can actually swim with whale sharks. While there are whale sharks in the area throughout the year, the highest concentration is found in the area between the months of November and April. During that time, nearly 100 whale sharks will be found in the area swimming and feeding in the bay. Tours are available where visitors can get in the water and swim closely to the giant, but gentle whale sharks. This exciting experience is a one in a lifetime opportunity to get up close and personal with nature at its best.
#5 Have a Picnic at the Beach
Another fun thing to do in Baja is to have a picnic at the beach. Baja has some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico with soft, white sand and clear Sea of Cortez turquoise waters. If you are staying at the Villa del Palmar Cabo, stop by the Palmita Deli to pick up some sandwiches and drinks to take with you to the beach. You and your family will love having a picnic and lounging on the beach all day.
#6 Visit the Cabo Marina
The Cabo Marina is another place that travelers should check out during their Baja vacation. Travelers can board boats at the Marina to go whale watching tours, sport fishing, or sunset cruises through the Bay. Also, there are excellent dining options in the marina as well. There are many wonderful restaurants and bars located on a spacious boardwalk. If you want to go shopping, you can find everything from high-end boutiques to casual stores in the nearby Golden Zone shopping area. Last but not least, the marina is home to a Cultural Pavilion that regularly hosts theater and dance performances as well.
#7 ATV’s, Ziplines, and Bungee Jumping Activities
Another top Cabo activity is to take an ATV tour in the Baja California Sur desert. The varied terrain includes wonderful views of the desert, beach, hills, canyons, and even wetlands depending on the time of year you visit. A professional tour guide will lead the way and offer tidbits and interesting facts about the area. If you’re feeling extra adventurous, you can also book a zip lining or bungee jumping tour.
#8 Ride Go Karts
If you want to have some fun on your vacation, why not try go karting? Both kids and adults will enjoy this Cabo activity. Will you be bringing your kids or grandkids with you on your vacation? Children that are at least 4’6” tall will be able to drive their very own go kart at the Cabo Karting Center. There, the race track has multiple laps that are approximately ¼ long.
#9 Go HorseBack Riding
Next, if you and your family love horses, why not visit the Cuadra San Francisco Equestrian Center? They have different trails to ride horses, and also offer horseback riding lessons for beginners. All of the saddles are sized to fit each rider! In Baja, you can also enjoy horseback riding on the beach which is an experience that you will never forget.

Last but not least, the Cabo Submarine is a classic vacation experience that the whole family will enjoy! The yellow submarine is around 60 feet long and seats 50 people comfortably. Visitors will enjoy amazing views of the beautiful and colorful marine life in the Sea of Cortez.
