Los Cabos Attractions
Though we will be separating attractions by city . . . please bear
in mind that the corridor is not a huge barrier. Busses take people
from one Cabo to the other on a regular basis. Some companies like
Cabo San Lucas Tours offer excursions from both areas, which makes
finding the activity that suits you very easy. Even for the tours
that depart only from one town or the other, taxis and buses are
readily available and easy to ride.
Cabo Fishing :
World-class sportfishing expeditions in the marlin
capital of the world. Yachts for all budgets, from economy to luxury. The finest
fishing fleet in Cabo San Lucas.
SAN JOSE DEL CABO ATTRACTIONS :
Beaches : San Jose del Cabo has a lot of great beaches . . . just
not great for swimming. The closest beach with water suitable for
swimming is La Playita about 2 miles east of town. The next closest
beach is 5 miles west (in the corridor) and is called Playa Palmilla
(follow the signs to Pepe's restaurant on the beach).
Surfing : The best surf is found from March to November on the beaches
west of Cabo. The most popular surfing spot can be found on Playa
Costa Azul at Km 29 (highway 1) just south of town. There is also
a surf shop there that will have info on where the waves are breaking
best while you are there. Hard core surf buffs will find camping
is allowed on the beach and there are some small inexpensive places
Kayaking : Los Lobos del mar on the south side of San Jose rents
Kayaks and offers tours. This is a great way to go whale watching.
Whale Watching : The gray whales migrate between January and March.
Go to La Playita (Pueblo la Playa) and you will find local fishermen
offering whale watching tours.
Horseback Riding : Most people want to do this on the beach and
will find horses for rent on the beach side of the Fiesta Inn, Palmilla,
and Presidente Inter-Continental hotels.
Golf : Every time someone turns around for a minute,
there is a new golf course in Los Cabos . . . though to date, I would
recommend checking the Palmilla Golf Club at the One&Only Palmilla
resort. It hosts the first Jack Nicklaus Signature course in Mexico.
From there . . . we move west through Cabo del Sol (another Jack
Nicklaus course) and more spread out in the corridor and Cabo San
CABO SAN LUCAS ATTRACTIONS:
Marina Cabo San Lucas : This is the real hub of
anything related to boats or ships in Los Cabos. This is where you
want to go if you are looking for the sport fishing fleet, water
taxis that will take you to El Arco (the natural arch can be seen
from there), Playa del Amor (at El Arco), glass bottomed boats, whale
watching cruises (January through March), Cruise Ships, and the Mercado
Snorkeling and Scuba Diving : One of the most interesting dive sites
is the "sandfalls" coming off an underwater canyon wall in San Lucas
bay. . . But there are more things to see and dives to do in the
area. For more information, we recommend that you visit www.amigosdelmar.com.
Swimming : The safest and most popular place to swim in Cabo San
Lucas is Playa Medano. The beach can get quite crowded, but it is
the place to see and be seen. Playa del Amor is the other good swimming
spot (take a water taxi to the Arch "El Arco").
Horseback Riding : Go to the parking lot of the Hotel Melia Los
Cabos and you can rent horses from Rancho Colin.
Surfing : From March through November is a good time to try the
famous right break at Chileno Beach (Cabo San Lucas Hotel just east
Golf : Check out the Raven Club (old Cabo San Lucas
Country Club) for a Dye family course that is considered better than
the old one there. Then there is the El Dorado Golf Course . . .
a Jack Nicklaus signature course with great ocean views. That's not
all of the courses . . . but they are the big ones.
