Top Five Things to Do in los Cabos

Los Cabos is a great destination for a sunny holiday and really easy to get to from Los Angeles. So easy in fact that me and my travel buddy added some Baja time onto our LA trip a few years ago. Here's what we got up to. 

Walk around the streets of San Jose del Cabo

Far less touristy than its sister city San Lucas, the tranquil streets of San Jose are lined with art galleries, quirky shops and atmospheric places to eat. The town square is ideal to do some people watching and if things get to hot after all that walking, the beach is never far away.

Go whale watching off the harbour in San Lucas

From October through late March the grey whales can be spotted off the coast of los cabos. For this your best bet is to go to San Lucas as many whale watching boats leave from the harbour here. There are loads of operator that sell whale watching tours in the harbour so you will be spoiled for choice. Most operators will take you along the famous Cabo landmark El Arco de Cabo where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez as well.

Rent a car and head to Todos Santos

This sleepy town has a real artsy feel to it as there are loads of artists' studios dotted along the streets selling their work. It's a quaint village to while away an afternoon or if you have more time, to stay overnight in the actual Hotel California.

Soak up the sun at one of the many Baja beaches

There are so many to choose from. There's Lovers' Beach which as the name reveals, a highly romantic setting and can only be reached by boat. Then equally idyllic, but with a slightly less romantic name is Divorce Beach. It might not sounds as lovey dovey as the aforementioned beach, but it's still great for catching some rays and watching sunsets.

Eat mole and drink margaritas

No need to go hungry or thirsty in Los Cabos as there are many places to choose from in either San Lucas or San Jose. If you like to liven up your nights out then San Lucas is the place for you. Lots of bars line the harbour front and there are plenty of nightclubs to keep the party going all night. If you prefer to have a more quiet night out, then head to San Jose where you'll find plenty of restaurants in a more tranquil setting. However, beware of the Mariachi bands that tend to serenade diners at their table.

  1. I could definitely go for all five of those right now. Anything to get out of dreary Germany. Great post!

  2. Right? Although I came back from holidays today to find London bathing in sunshine. Spring is here!
