Our top ten things to do in Los Cabos

I am often asked how I have chosen the top 10 list, that I put up on my blog.  While in college I found it much easier to create a list when I started studying for a test or writing a term paper. Knowing that it is easy to understand why I create a top ten list, now as to how do I decide what goes on the list, simply put it is things I would like to do or have done in Los Cabos.  I have chosen things on this list either because I have come across them while studying for certifications, personal experience, research, or client recommendations. Each of the item on the top 10 has a link, which will open a new window for more information.

 Let us know what you think of our list in the comments below the list. 

 1. Golf

From the moment Jack Nicklaus arrived on the scene in the early 1990s, Los Cabos has been in the midst of an unprecedented golfing boom. Four of its 18 courses were ranked among the World’s 100 Best Courses (U.S. excluded) by Golf Digest in 2018:  Querencia, Quivira, The Dunes at Diamante, and the Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol. That’s an astonishing percentage, especially when you consider the first course didn’t open until 1987.

 2. Diving

Have  you ever been diving with thousands of Mobula Rays, schools so massive they literally block out the sun? How about snorkeling with Mako sharks? Or encounters with gigantic, breaching humpback whales and their newborn calves?  Scuba diving in Los Cabos gives you the chance to do all of that and much more! We recently held a Girls that Scuba event in Los Cabos, with our awesome dive friends Dive Ninja Expeditions, and were so amazed at the life we saw underwater that we couldn’t wait to tell you about it!

 3. Shopping

Although first-time visitors to Los Cabos can’t help but notice the area’s oversupply of jewelry shops–Taxco silver and Mexican fire opals are the most sought after commodities–cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo do indeed offer a wide variety of shopping options, ranging from upscale clothing boutiques and art galleries to colorful flea markets and souvenir stalls.

 4. Sunset Cruise

I love being out on the water.  There’s nothing more peaceful to me then hearing the crash of waves and the melodic sounds of the ocean. I’ve always wanted to do a sunset cruise, and the perfect opportunity presented itself during my trip to Cabo. I was so excited when I discovered Cabo Sailing and the experiences they offer. 

 5. Fishing

That is how Zane Grey, master storyteller and IGFA Hall of Famer, described the sportfishing potential of Cabo San Lucas some 100 years ago. The southern tip of Baja California has a longstanding tradition of leaving its visiting anglers breathless, as anyone who has fished here already knows. No matter how experienced you are, these waters will change the way you think about fishing.

 6. San José del Cabo Art Walk

Often galleries will have special events such as “artist in attendance” or openings of new exhibitions. With the ever-growing popularity of the Art Walk, downtown San José as a whole is bustling on Thursday evenings but the heart, soul and sophistication of this weekly event lies within the borders of the Gallery District inside the galleries, located behind the church and main square.

 7. Mission San José del Cabo Church

While most travelers are familiar with Cabo San Lucas, few have heard about San José del Cabo, a tranquil destination just a few miles down the road that’s filled with history and beauty. Whether you make it your destination or take a day trip here from Cabo, there’s a variety of activities in San José del Cabo that showcase Mexico’s history and culture, and with the sunny San José del Cabo weather, getting out and exploring the cobblestone streets is a great addition to any vacation. Once you know where is San José del Cabo, it’s tempting to return to this peaceful town year after year.

 8. Whale Watching

Whale watching season in Cabo San Lucas can vary from year to year, but the whales pass through Cabo from Mid-December to April annually. We recommendtravelling to Cabo between January and March to have your best chance of seeing whales.

 9. El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

As one of the world’s most sought-after destinations for fun in the sun, Cabo San Lucas is home to countless fabulous sights and activities which will turn any vacation into a memory-filled experience you will cherish forever.  One of the most iconic of these attractions in Cabo is El Arco (Land’s End), the stunning stone arches emerging from the sea which have been flawlessly carved by nature and are no doubt the most common image associated with this amazing destination.  

 10. Wirikuta Botanical Cactus Garden

Can you feel the fuzzy spines along the rows of these cacti?

Visit the Wirikuta cactus gardens in Los Cabos, Mexico, and you can check out zillions of cactus plants.

Okay, not exactly zillions. But almost!
