  • The Arch

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    This natural arch is Cabo's most famous landmark. It's only accesible by boat so you can either take a sightseeing or whale watching tour or rent a kayak and paddle out here. Right by the arch is a colony of sea lions.

  • Beach

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    This is a good place to eat, drink and play at the beach. Away from the crowds of Medano Beach at the east end of the beach. When on the highway coming into Cabo turn left on Blvd. Constituyentes and you will see the free public parking area on the left at the end of the street. I like this place because the parking is easy, the have shaded tables,...

  • ATV Tours

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    Booked a trip with Amigos ATV Adventures and was most disappointed.Found the machines to be in a poor state of repair,some barely running,most with near bald tires and more than one person complaining about poor or non existant brakes.My particular machine broke down on the way to the beach and when no none returned to find me I was forced to walk...

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    Looking for a fun boat that takes you snorkeling? Then this is the one for you! The Jungle Cruise departs from the main dock in Cabo San Lucas Marina in the late morning, around 10:30am. During the four hour cruise, the boat started by taking us out to get a close look at the Arch before heading over to Santa Maria Bay and Pelican Rock for...

  • Fishing

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    No trip to Cabo San Lucas can be considered fully complete without taking a crack at deep sea fishing. The Sea of Cortez is home to a wide array of game fish including blue marlin, striped marlin, yellowfin tuna, dorado, and yellowtail. For our fishing expedition we selected the Gaviota Fleet known for their reliable services, fast boats, and...

  • Water sports

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    One of the more popular beach activities is to rent jet skis and cruise around the Sea of Cortez. You can get pretty close to the famous Arch and are allowed to the North and can cruise to the end of the bay in the South. Generally, you're allowed to rent for either a half hour or 1 hour. It's a fun thing to do if you're relaxing on the beach, but...

  • Watch the sun set

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    We took a sunset cruise with the Sunderland, Cabo's Pirate Sunset. This 30 metres tall pirate ship was building in 1885 and is an open bar. Sailing for 2 hours to see the sunset and for the rest there is the booze :o) I was only disappointed that there was no pirate show. Price is US$ 40 by person, and we did it for US$ 20 by person...

  • Scuba & Snorkel

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    I had an awful experience with the Jungle Cruise booked through JusCollege (cabospringbreak.com). Long story short, these people are liars and thieves. They stole $125 collectively between me and my four friends. If you sign up for a snorkeling tour with them, don't expect to actually go snorkeling. While on vacation in Cabo San Lucas, we payed $35...

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    Just got back from Cabo and had a blast. We did this tour that some American guys started called the After Hours Tour. It was amazing, there was no uncertainty on what to do, these guys took us to all the hot spots in town. Definitely worth it, these guys know how to party. after.tour@facebook.com

  • Whale Watching

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    On the main square you will find a skeleton of a grey whale in front of a museum. I guess it is a part of the museum. We tried two times to visit the museum, but every time we went it was closed. Not that we were to late, but the guards went to (2 > 3 hours) early at home. Not an interesting place for tourists it seems...

  • Day Trips

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    If you get a chance visit San Jose in the evening hours after most of the tourists have left for Cabo. We went at aroung 8:00 P.M. and felt like we were the only tourists there. There were lots of locals with thier children enjoying the square. We felt like we were experiencing real Mexico (I know that seem impossible in the Cabo area), most of the...

  • Parasailing

    Cabo San Lucas Things to Do

    These guys are always on the beach. I didnt do it but Rob did. All I remember thinking was, this doesnt look safe and it was expensive to do. Now i wished i had done it because you probably could get some awesome pictures from up there. Rob loved it and said it was worth every penny. Maybe next time i wont be so scared. I might just try it. It does...

    There are many outfitters in La Paz that will organize a day trip out to Isla Espiritu Santo. It is a beautiful island, with steep cliffs striped in all shades of gold to orange plunging into the sea. There are also soft white sand beaches with sheltered inlets for swimming and snorkelling. At the north end of the island is Los Islotes, home to a...

  • Kayaking Tours

    If you enjoy the outdoors, camping and wildlife, I would highly recommend one of the many kayak tours that are organized in Baja each winter. I travelled with Tofino Expeditions and was very happy with the equipment, the meals and especially our two local guides.You do not have to be superfit or to even have any prior kayaking experience. I do...

    La Paz is the main town in southern baja and suprisingly nice and fairly untouristy.i spend about a week there and really enjoyed the seafront promenade and the good vibe in town.the town has a university and therfor a lot of young locals which gives it a good atmosphere.it's certainly a nice alternative to some of the resort towns nearby.

  • The Baja coastline.

    The Baja coastline is fantastic.Hundreds of miles of beaches, most of them almost untouched.The barren landscape means that alot of them are kinda hidden, so you can easily find your own secluded spot in this part of the world.

    Loreto is located in a wonderful spot where the Sierra Giganta mountains meet the Sea of Cortez. It is the oldest human settlement in the Californias and its first capital. It's mission was the first in a chain of Jesuit missions along the west coast of Baja.It makes a great base for exploring the mountains to the south, Magdalena Bay to the west...

  • Snorkelling in Loreto

    We discovered that Loreto was one of our most favorite places in all of Baja Sur. It is a quaint town with several restaurants and hotels at reasonable prices. It is not yet "overrun" by tourism. Water sports (snorkelling, fishing) are big activities here. We wanted to snorkel but were cheap, and didn't want to pay for a guide/trip. Someone...

  • Whale watching at Laguna San Ignacio...

    This expereience will leave you speechless. If you have ever been whale watching in the states, don't even compare the two. In Baja you are eye to eye with the whales and their young. You can literally touch them if you like. The lagoon is filled with so much marine life you won't believe your eyes. The company I used was Kuyima. They have a nice...

  • Santa Rosalia, Baja Sur Mexico

    One of my favorite stops in Baja California Sur is Santa Rosalia. This ancient mining town on the Sea of Cortez has a certain charm all it's own. Let me share a brief history of this quaint town. In the late 1800's a company from France wishing to mine for copper in this area made a deal with President Porfirio Diaz. As a result of their agreement...

  • Todos Santos

    Todos Santos is a very clean and picturesque town. It is very touristy, but in a quiet way unlike Cabos San Lucas. There is a lovely mission, many good restaurants, a huge selection of arts and crafts, and even a cinema. There are also many good surf beaches here, but you will need a vehicle to access them.See my Todos Santos pages for more tips...

  • Mulege

    Mulege is a small town just north of the beautfiul Bahia de la Concepcion. It is a wonderful daytrip from Loreto or stopover on your travels up or down the Baja peninsula. It is situated between two hills, in a valley where the palm lined Mulege river runs to the sea. There is a lovely mission here situated on a hilltop with great views of the...

  • Bahia Balandra

    Bahia Balandra is like a huge turquoise blue swimming pool surrounded by cactii dotted hills. The sand is soft and white and it is easy to find a warm secluded spot out of the wind. You can also view the famous balancing rock here.I would plan to spend the entire day here since the swimming and snorkelling are best when the tides are high.This was...

  • Cactus in Bloom

    If there has been some rain recently, the desert will erupt into bloom. I have not seen a cactus in flower before, in fact I didn't know that they did flower, so I felt very lucky to get a shot of this one in Todos Santos.

  • Enjoy the desert flora

    While in Baja, I suggest you get out of your car and go for a walk amongst the beautiful cactii and desert blooms. You will also notice alot of birdlife, especially hummingbirds as they zoom past your head.

  • Cabos San Lucas

    Many people love Cabos San Lucas. You can tell that because it is full of tourists in huge hotels, countless timeshares, large shopping malls and many restaurants and bars. If you are not really looking for any real mexican culture and just want to get away and party, then this is the place for you.If you prefer a less commercial holiday then I...

    La Paz is the capital of Baja California Sur. It was founded in 1535 by Hernan Cortes but was not colonized until the Jesuit fathers built a mission here in 1720.La Paz is a large city by Baja standards, but the city centre is compact and easily navigated by foot. The beach side malecon is a wonderful place for walking and shell collecting. There...

  • Whale Watching in Magdalena Bay

    I planned my trip to coincide with the migration of the grey whales to the Baja Peninsula. These mammals travel over 6500 miles from the Arctic waters of Alaska to the warm, salty, protected bays of Baja. They remain in Baja from mid January to mid March. They assemble in great numbers in Magdalena Bay to mate one year and then give birth the next....

  • Bahia de la Concepcion

    This Bahia is a beautiful bright blue against the red rocky shoreline and soft white sand beaches. It stretches for 48 kms south of Mulege and north of Loreto. The Trans Peninsular Highway winds its way along the coast line offering wonderful views around every corner. There are many small, secluded beaches to stop at along the way although some...

  • Beaches

    Visit the beaches. We did not see any vendors at this area of the Chileno beach. To get to the beach, go through the gate at the parking lot and walk down the path. When you get to a split in the road, walk up the road to the right and make your way down to the beach.
