If you haven’t been to Cabo, it is definitely one of the places you should try to see at some time in your life. Especially if you reside in Southern America. It isn’t far, and it isn’t expensive, so there really aren’t any great excuses! Mexico is a beautiful country overall, but once you visit some of its treasures, you will soon realize just how beautiful it actually is. If you are taking a cruise ship, that at some point finds itself on the see-through blue waters of Cabo San Lucas, then this is a great article for you. If you are planning on flying in and staying in a resort, this article is still great for you. Lol. Since there is a 99% chance you will be staying at a resort right in front of where the cruise ship pulls up.
Once you arrive, there are tons of different things that I recommend you take part of. If you are limited on time, just pick our favorites and go with the flow. Some of the activities include: water taxis, Lovers’ Beach, Seal Island, the infamous Arch, Medano Beach, shopping, and of course, the fooooood.
Getting a water taxi is something that we highly recommend. For the simple reason that it takes you to see most of the beautiful sights that Cabo has to offer. It only costs around $20-30 for two people, depending on how good you are at bargaining. What they usually offer is a tour of 2 or 3 places right off the coast, and a stay at one of them. So, if you are in a super relaxing beach mood, then you would see a few places, and then they would drop you off at whichever beach you choose. Whatever time you decide you leave is when they will be back to pick you up.
One of the first sights you will get to see on the water taxi ride is the El Arco, or in English, Arch of Cabo San Lucas. They tour guides always have a few different things to say about it but keeps it entertaining and knowledgeable with some history thrown into the mix. It really is a beautiful sight to see and it’s a lot of fun. On the way there, you will actually pass by Lover’s Beach, which is completely secluded, so be sure to bring food and water when you go. On the exact opposite side of Lover’s Beach is Divorce Beach, which is on the West side, facing the waves of the ocean. The waves can sometimes come in a bit strong, and it is highly recommended not to swim on that side, especially when the red tide flag is up.
Another stop you will end up seeing on the water taxi tour is Seal Beach. Its not a beach that you will stop on, more of a rock that seals lay out and tan on. You do get really close though, so be camera ready! Oh, and right before you get to the Arch, you will be able to see a bunch of little and medium size fishies! Either by looking over the side of the boat, or by looking through the bottom. Have I mentioned that the middle of the boat is see-through? Yep! Glass bottom boats so you can see what’s swimming around underneath you! It really is a fun tour, so I do recommend it if you have time. On that note, it takes about 45 minutes to an hour to complete the tour to different places, before they drop you each off wherever you chose to spend the rest of your day.
If you are looking to swim and play in the water, Medano Beach is the way to go. It is like any other beach out there that you would imagine, except with extremely beautiful water (color and temperature), and overly delicious food right behind you. One of the restaurants that we recommend on Medano Beach is Omega Sports Bar. They always have a food and beer special. When we went it was $6 for chips & salsa, 2 tacos, and a beer. They are larger tacos than most places, and the meal itself is pretty filling. Especially when you have more than 1 beer. 😊. Another great place to eat is Mango Deck, where we ended up getting a bucket of beer and some more tacos. It is a little more expensive than the other restaurant mentioned above, but still delicious. They also have great music, fast servers, ocean front seating, and good vibes.
Lastly, there is a large building filled with vendors next to the Marina. If you are staying at a resort, you can either walk there, take a water taxi, or take a regular cab. They have all the normal Mexican gifts, souvenirs, and clothes that you are likely to see most places you go. It is fun to look around, particularly if you haven’t gotten gifts for the friends/family watching your house, kids, or pets. Just a block or two away from here is Cabo Wabo, where you can find amazing margaritas and fantastic grub.
