Best Things To Do in Cabo San Lucas

Sunbathing is the main event here, particularly along the shores of Playa Medano or the popular Playa del Amor. Just be sure that when you need to go for a dip, you're at a safe beach for swimming. This part of the ocean has strong undertows, even stronger riptides and vicious waves that crash down on swimmers. Away from the shore, you'll find that Los Cabos hosts some of the most beautiful and challenging golf courses. Cabo del Sol Golf Club has some of the highest green fees in the area, but avid golfers say the price is worth it.

Located at the southern end of Cabo San Lucas and sandwiched between Playa del Amor and Playa del Divorcio, these rock formations were created from the rough winds and seas of the southern Baja Peninsula. Sea lions frequent the area (especially along the Los Frailes rock formation), and Land's End remains excellent for couples looking for a romantic spot to see the sunset.

Many say San José del Cabo is Cabo San Lucas' more elegant twin sister. Separated by the Corridor and situated just south of the airport, the city is commonly known as the "Old Town," exuding traditional Mexican charm while also impressing with its luxurious new resorts. If you're seeking respite from the party-laden streets of Cabo, take a ride out to San José where you can stroll around a lovely plaza, tour a beautiful church, feast on the sea's bounty, or shop till you drop.

Chileno Beach's calm, shallow waters make it the go-to spot for snorkelers. But the real reason travelers love Chileno's cream-colored shore is the lack of noisy bars and restaurants that plague other Los Cabos beaches. However, this does mean that you'll have to come prepared with your own snacks and drinks and rely on public facilities. Most travelers don't seem to mind these small inconveniences and say the impressive snorkeling conditions (and variety of colorful fish) make a trip here well worth it.
