When Memorial Day approaches and the unofficial start to summer is finally here, we all want to escape for that deliciously long weekend, especially after a lengthy spring of varying temperatures when it seemed like winter would never end! It’s almost instinct to go on a Memorial Day vacation, and Cabo is one of the top destinations! Offering a different vibe from packed American beaches, here you can rent a private luxury Cabo vacation rental, and enjoy unencumbered seaside views, pristine beaches, and lively beachside bars perfect for a long weekend celebration. When you’re not living it up in the traditional holiday fashion, you’ll find a myriad of water recreation, from sea-kayaking to snorkeling. Paradise is just a plane ride away—so join us in Cabo for this Memorial Day!
Splash into the Sea with Thrilling Activities
Cabo is an ocean-lovers paradise, and if you aren’t when you arrive, you will be by the time you leave! Local tour companies offer countless ways to get into the shimmering Sea of Cortez, whether it’s a snorkeling trip to discover life under the sea, or a thrilling jet-ski excursion. Rent snorkel gear to explore just offshore local beaches or take a tour that offers lunch and a boat ride to the best snorkeling spots. If you’re an admirer of the beautiful El Arco, the unique arch of Cabo, you must do a sea-kayaking tour, where you can cruise right under the arch and spot wildlife such as mischievous sea lions and resident seabirds. Cabo Expeditions offers a variety of kayaking tours, and if you’re staying closer to San José, a kayaking trip through the local estuary will be a dream for bird waters, as the coastal wetlands offer constant bird sighting opportunities. Whichever way you’d like to explore the sea, you’ll have an activity that matches your style.
Visit all the Best Cabo Beaches
Of course, lounging out on the beach is an activity itself, and you’ll find a wide variety of public beaches prime for relaxation, swimming, surfing, and snorkeling. Playa el Médano offers a lively beach atmosphere, with tons of bars and restaurants lining the shore—sip on margaritas with your feet in the sand at The Office or grab a beachside massage along with your cocktail at The Sand Bar. Nestled between a rocky shoreline you’ll find Lover’s Beach, which offers calm waters great for snorkeling—getting there can be a fun little adventure as well, as it’s only accessible by water taxi! For a more low-key pace, journey up the Tourist Corridor, where beaches like Playa Santa Maria and Play el Chileno offer gorgeous shoreline with a more relaxed feel. For the supreme beach experience, rent a luxury Cabo vacation rental with its own stretch of private beach front, giving you a true remote beach experience on what could otherwise be a crowded holiday weekend at the beaches back home!
Embark on a Luxurious Sunset Cruise
Treat yourself to an upscale experience this holiday weekend, and buy tickets for an elegant dinner cruise, where you’ll soak up the scenery of the mountains and the Sea of Cortez, with cocktails and a sunset view. Local companies in town that offer dinner experiences include Caborey and Wild Cabo Tours, while Salty Cabo in San José has a happy hour cruise. For a kid-friendly affair, you can book a tour in glass bottomed boat, which is sure to be a memorable ride for the little ones!
Explore the Tropical Desert
The beaches are understandably a huge draw of Cabo, and what most people envision when they think of the city. For those who look beyond the coast, an entire new world awaits! Book an ATV tour to our arid desert region, and take in classic desert landscapes with mountains, orange sand, and various species of cacti. If you love horseback riding, you can book a ride on local trails, some of them coastal, which offer a gorgeous perspective on both the land and the sea. If you dare for a bit of a thrill, try ziplining at the Costa Azul Ziplines, where you can take a ride over a ruggedly beautiful desert canyon.
Indulge in World-Class Dining and Shopping
When you’re in Cabo for Memorial Day, you’ll find no shortage of amazing restaurants to dine at, from upscale spots like Sunset Monalisa at The Ledge, or casual authentic taco spots like Tacos Guss. If you’d like to hunt for the best weekend sales, check out Plaza Puerto Paraiso, a huge mall right on the marina, or journey up to the posh Shoppes at Palmilla for trendy fashions, as well as fine art and jewelry.
