Cabo Arts & Culture Journey

HomeCabo San Lucas JourneysCabo Arts & Culture Journey

The year-round sun and warmth of Los Cabos is what makes it a great place for a getaway any time of year. You can plan your vacation around a special event of your own, like a birthday or anniversary, or you can plan it around a special Cabo celebration of its arts and culture. No matter when you come, make sure to learn more about the area’s arts and culture through celebrations or other tours that highlight Cabo arts and culture to enjoy on your trip. 

Cabo Art Galleries

Explore the galleries anytime during their public hours of operation, or make sure to leave some time open on a Thursday. Every Thursday during the high season – November – May/June, the district’s Art Walk is a weekly occurrence not to be missed. Some streets in the downtown area are even closed in the afternoon so the fun, which includes the art as well as music and theater throughout the streets, can start. Wander into the galleries for free drinks and snacks as you take in the best works of local artists and artists from across Mexico. 

Art Galleries

There are many art galleries throughout Cabo, each featuring local artists in sculpture, painting, and more. Browse their works or visit one of the many galleries that feature an interactive experience. Many buildings in the area, like the Museo de Historia Natural, aren’t labeled “art galleries,” but hold an extensive amount of Mexican art, pottery, sculpture, and more depicting some of the country’s best art. 

El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

The distinctive rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo is a must-see. Locally known as “El Arco” meaning “the arch” or “Land’s End” in Spanish, it’s the spot where the Pacific Ocean officially becomes the Gulf of California. The three-story tall natural arch was formed by erosion and is accessible by land and sea. Take a guided tour of the area and learn about Cabo’s culture, history, and more. Make sure to bring a camera for capturing glimpses of sea life like whales, turtles, sea lions, and others. 

 Museo de Historia Natural

The natural history of an area is a great look into the art and culture that made an area what it is today. The museum was originally used to house the first primary school in Cabo, Articulo 12 Naciones Unidas. It now hosts a collection of permanent and temporary exhibits featuring the paleontology, geology, paleo-biology, and paleoanthropology of Los Cabos. See the remains of marine mammals, birds, reptiles, and more. Tour the facility’s seven rooms and learn about the history of Cabo, the migration of various sea life, and even how sailors navigated the waters in Cabo’s early days.  

Cookin’ Cabo

Taste Mexico’s delicious food culture. Add another delicious – and authentic – Mexican dish to your home menu with a cooking class and market tour. You’ll learn to cook with the flavors, colors, and textures of Cabo’s best cuisine. Go shopping for the ingredients at a local market, then step into the kitchen of the local host chef for a hands-on lesson creating an authentic Mexican meal from your ingredients. Once you book online, you’ll receive a confirmation with date, time, and all the information you’ll need to enjoy the one-of-a-kind experience. 

Fiesta of the Virgin of Carmen

Careful planning will allow you to “number” what day of your trip this falls on, but as it is a specific festival at a specific time of year, you’ll have to time it just right. Each July, the fiesta honors the woman believed to be a vital protector of Mexico. Festivities start with a myriad of craft vendors flooding the streets with their wares. In the afternoon, a parade of school children their families, puppeteers and other performers makes its way through the streets of downtown. The afternoon features bullfights at the Toros Stadium south of the city, and a small, city-run fishing tournament. 

Carnaval Day

As with the Fiesta of the Virgin of Carmen, Carnaval is the all-out and indulgent celebration of all your favorite pleasures before the fasting period preceding Catholic Lent. The special time of year means adding a “number” to the day the celebration falls in your trip is difficult to decide. In Cabo, Carnaval is celebrated the weekend before Lent with feasting, drinking, colorful parades, and traditional dancing through the streets. It’s an authentic display of Cabo culture, art, and history related to the important religious and cultural holiday season.
