The 10 Must Do’s in Cabo

Los Cabos truly has something for each type of visitor. From beaches to activities, shopping to relaxation, here’s a checklist of “musts” so you can enjoy all that Los Cabos has to offer.

1. FIND YOUR FAVORITE BEACH.

Whether you’re seeking a secluded spot for a romantic escapade or a snorkeling piece of shoreline that’s also great for the kids, Los Cabos and its surroundings offer a multitude of beautiful beaches. Those low-key roads veering off onto the sea often hide a bonanza of prime waterfront.

2. NURTURE YOUR INNER ARTIST.

You’d be wise to take your camera, pencil or even pastels every time you leave your hotel room, as Los Cabos’ natural beauty and man-made élan provide ample options for a lifetime of memories.Whether it’s the orange traces in the sky as the sun goes down or fishermen coming back from a day at sea, Baja’s beauty is meant to be captured in some way or another.

3. VACATION LIKE A CELEBRITY.

Indulge in a day’s worth of luxurious spa pampering, whip out your sunglasses and stroll about like the Hollywood stars. Don’t be too surprised if you spot a famous singer or actor (or even some paparazzi) “hiding out” beside you, enjoying the warm days and lively nights of Los Cabos.

Even decades after the likes of John Wayne headed here for a little R and R, the glitterati still love this spot of sassy sophistication.

4. BECOME ONE WITH NATURE.

From December to March, Baja California Sur welcomes a flurry of whales seeking warm waters in which to give birth. Visitors may arrange For a tour that takes them just inches away from these gentle mammals, or even spot them from beaches or a strategically built bar overlooking the ocean. You may also spot seals sunning themselves on the rocks around El Arco and loudly complaining about the presence of kayakers nearby.

5. GO ON A ROAD TRIP.

Don’t neglect Los Cabos’ earthly treasures just because there’s so much to discover at sea. A drive around Baja is an adventure in itself. Having your own wheels will give you access to miles of regal cacti, a forgotten fish taco stand with ice-cold beer and other unexpected surprises.

6. HEAD EAST.

To the East Cape, that is. This relatively undeveloped area is a favorite spot for surfers looking to get away from the crowds and those who love to fish. With more rustic surroundings and camping sites than its more sophisticated neighbor, the East Cape is a dream come true for nature types, including divers who want to reach the Cabo Pulmo natural reef system.

7. GO FISH.

Even if you don’t consider yourself the fishing type, you must try your luck here. Many hotels and outfitters offer fishing packages and assorted options for fun days at sea. If you’d rather run with the big boys, sign up for one of several championship tournaments.

8. TEE OFF.

As one of the world’s most famous golf destinations, Los Cabos glitters with amazing greens.Championship courses have been carved out of an arid landscape that often looks out into the blue beyond. Everyone from Tom Fazio to Jack Nicklaus, Tom Weiskopf and Greg Norman has helped design and build what are now some of the area’s most appealing attractions.

9. COME HUNGRY.

Leave your diet behind and get ready to savor some of the best seafood and Mexican delicacies in the entire peninsula. From toe-tingling Pacific tuna to shrimp tacos with a spicy kick, Los Cabos’ range of culinary options offers something for everyone.

10. TIME2CABO.

You’re in Cabo! Leave your cares behind and embrace the beauty and activity around you.

History tells its tale with vigor at Oaxaca, and its modern achievements in art and culinary distinction rival past accomplishments. Several museums, excellent dining with flavors unique to the area, and original handicraft shops satisfy discriminating tastes. 

The narrow streets of the old inner city are lined with beautiful churches, museums, and pastel-colored houses that open a window onto Oaxaca’s past. Replete with historical treasures, the entire city has been named a World Heritage Site. 

Descendants of the Zapotec, Mixtec, and Olmec – ancient peoples who left behind a remarkable testimony to their highly advanced civilizations – mingle with Spanish descendants in a vibrant fusion of ancestries. Baroque churches stand alongside mysterious ruins to create the striking contrasts of a world where colonial architecture co-exists with indigenous designs. 

In addition to their famous hospitality, Oaxacans are internationally renowned for their black pottery, wool rugs, and sculpture. Galleries abound and you can even purchase replicas of pre-Columbian jewelry, crafted in gold and silver, similar to those found at Oaxaca’s archeological sites.
