While you might first think of Cabo San Lucas as the perfect spot for romance and nightlife, you will probably be surprised to hear that it is also a great place to bring up a family or visit with the children for a vacation. The reason Cabo is considered a hotspot for the families is because of the numerous outdoor activities designed with children in mind that you can enjoy. The following list contains just a few ideas of how to entertain your children in Cabo:
Cabo Karting Center
Your family is going to love the excitement of this competitive activity. If your children are at least 4’6” tall, they can participate in the multi-lap race that goes around the quarter mile track in Cabo. Younger children who are shorter than the minimum required height can enjoy the excitement of the various video games there or watch from the sidelines. So, get your engines revved up for an exciting and competitive adventure the whole family will love again and again!
Cuadra San Francisco Equestrian Center
This best-kept wonder in Cabo San Lucas features an equestrian center that is run by a father-and-son team of highly experienced horsemen. There are plenty of horse-riding activities for your family to participate in —from trail rides to scheduled riding lessons. The saddles are sized according to the type of horse ridden (full sized horses for adults or ponies for children) so all family members can ride comfortably. This activity is sure to be a favorite of the whole family.
Cabo Dolphins for your vacation in Cabo
Children of all ages are going to love the enchantment of swimming with dolphins. Younger children can enjoy swimming and watching the dolphins in the shallow part of the pool while the older children can go for a dolphin ride by holding onto the fins of the dolphin as this lovely creature makes its round in the pool. This activity is sure to be a favorite for children of all ages.
High Tide Sea Expeditions
Your children will love being taught surfing lessons by Mexico’s former national surfing champion! Other activities in this area include kayaking to the Arch (el Arco) at Land’s End or going snorkeling and sunbathing at Divorce and Lover’s Beaches.
Many adventures in Cabo are eco-themed and are sure to keep your family entertained while vacationing or living in Cabo. Get your family involved in activities such as snorkeling trips to Santa Maria and Chileno Bays, Snuba (a cross between snorkeling and scuba diving), day trips to Isla Espiritu, seasonal whale watching or a swim with the whales, parasailing, and other activities.
