1. Whale Watching
To start with, whale watching is one of the best things to do in Cabo San Lucas during a vacation to Mexico in the winter months. Starting in November and December, visitors will be able to witness the migration of the majestic humpback whale. Plus, it’s a great way to get outside and enjoy the fresh air, too. These gentle giants travel through the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez near Cabo each year. Sometimes, whales can even be spotted from the beach. To get up close and personal, book a whale watching tour. Everyone in the family will love seeing the impressive creatures swim and play at sea. In fact, whale watching is one of the top family friendly Cabo activities to enjoy.
2. Beach Picnic Day
Baja California Sur is well known for having some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico. The turquoise Sea of Cortez waters and white sandy beaches make it easy to relax. There are lots of lovely beaches to explore in the area. Why not pack a picnic and head to the beach for a fun day with the family? You can pack a lunch and lounge around all day in the sun. For example, Medano Beach is a popular beach which is where the luxury Villa La Estancia is located. If you stay there, you can simply walk right down to the beach to set up camp for the day. Other top beaches in the area include Lover’s Beach, Divorce Beach and Chileno Beach.
3. ATV Tours and Zipline Adventures
Looking for adventurous Cabo activities during your vacation to Mexico? Many visitors enjoy taking a ATV tour in the desert. The Baja California Sur desert is the perfect backdrop for an adrenaline-pumping adventure. ATV tours typically travel through rugged terrain including sandy hills, canyons, and wetlands. ATV tours also include photo opportunities to admire stunning beach vistas. Guides will provide information on the region so you can learn some of the history of the area, too. Visitors can also try bungee jumping, off-road racing, zip-lining, and even sling swinging. Whether you’re looking to get your heart racing, or enjoy a nice leisurely ride with your sweetheart, there are tons of fun outdoor adventures for the whole family.
4. Go Karts and Horseback Riding
Will your children or grandchildren be with you on your vacation to Mexico? If so, kids that are at least 4’6” tall can ride their own go kart at the Cabo Karting Center. The multi-lap race track is a quarter mile long and adults will enjoy the adventure, too. Younger kids can play interactive video games and watch the go kart excitement from the sidelines. For horse lovers, check out the Cuadra San Francisco Equestrian Center. There, visitors can enjoy horseback trail rides and riding lessons, too. Saddles are sized according to the rider so children and adults can both enjoy the experience.
