What is the optimal amount of time to spend in Cabo San Lucas? For most people, a four-day visit is far too short. If money and time were not an issue, you could remain as long as you wanted. Many guests stay for seven days but might easily have remained an additional three to four days.
For returning visitors, spending a week in and around Cabo San Lucas offers the ideal amount of time for exciting activities, leisure, and the adventures they missed the first time around.
Here are seven day trips you shouldn’t miss while staying in Cabo San Lucas.
Todos Santos is one of the Baja Peninsula’s top surfing places, thanks to its magnificent beaches. You may also like the Sierra de La Laguna Biosphere Day Hike or the Pacific Bluffs Cliff Walk, or sign up for one of their top-rated tours. If you simply want to wander about town, you’ll undoubtedly find a spot to unwind and savor the unconventional vibe.
La Paz, a lovely village two hours from Cabo, is noted for its numerous natural treasures, including a wealth of marine life. Swimming with the majestic whale shark is a highly popular activity in La Paz if you come between October and March. You may experience the colorful ambiance of this region by strolling along its wonderful Malecon or renting a bike. A protected reserve with abundant marine life, Espiritu Santo Island is an hour’s boat trip from La Paz. Here you may go snorkeling or hire kayaks to travel to the inland mangroves or out to sea.
Los Barriles is a relaxed tiny seaside hamlet with huge houses built along its red dirt roadways. Several water activities are available between December and March, such as windsurfing, kiteboarding, and fishing. ATV tours in the town are a fun and popular diversion for many visitors. Hiking the mountain routes of Los Barriles is another favorite activity. After a day of touring, make sure to unwind with a margarita at one of the beachside eateries.
San Jose del Cabo
San Jose del Cabo, which is far calmer than its sister city Cabo San Lucas, reflects much of Los Cabos’ Mexican tradition. When you explore its historic district, you’ll identify some colonial architecture as well as discover its background as an eighteenth-century Jesuit mission. This trip will take you to a number of art galleries as well as some excellent local eateries.
Cabo Pulmo is known for its vibrant coral reefs, which are home to sharks, manta rays, and schools of tropical fish. Being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Cabo Pulmo National Park is a terrific place to visit. While you’re snorkeling, kayaking, or scuba diving, you can catch sight of sea lions and other marine wildlife. Because this long beach is mostly uninhabited, you’ll have it nearly all to yourself. You can grab a bite to eat at one of the many seafood huts on the beach that sell fresh fish tacos.
Sierra Laguna Waterfall Hike
The Sierra Laguna Mountain Range is one of Baja’s less-explored locations. Giant Visitors can discover Cardon cacti, palms, pine trees, canyons, waterfalls, and streams here. We recommend taking a guided tour of the waterfall because you’ll need a four-wheel drive vehicle if you travel alone. You can even be picked up from your Cabo San Lucas hotel by the tour operators. After a long walk, you may cool yourself in a natural pool that forms beneath the waterfall. UNESCO declared this biosphere as a protected reserve in 1994.
El Chorro and Santa Rita Hot Springs
We recommend taking a tour to see these incredible thermal springs. You won’t find them on regular excursions, but if you contact the tour operator, they can accommodate you. Note that the unpaved roads are narrow, and traveling might be an adventure in and of itself if you attempt it on your own.
Cabo has spectacular views and lovely beaches, as well as fantastic weather all year round. Make sure to consider these amazing day trips next time you visit for a more remarkable experience.
