Day 1: The Beach & Water

Water Adventures

Get close to bottlenose dolphins, sharks, manatees, rays, sea turtles and a variety of fish species that call the waters of Cabo home. Ask about daytime or sunset tours, as well as gear rental if you want to go solo. Cast a line for inshore, nearshore, and deep sea fishing. Go in search of your next meal in the form of marlin, Pacific Sailfish, tuna, roosterfish, and more. Take a lesson or rent some gear for activities like stand up paddleboarding, snorkeling, or kayaking.

Private Yacht/Sunset Cruise

Can charter a private yacht for a day or longer and get the service of a hotel or staffed vacation rental while floating on the water. If you don’t want to spend all day on the water, book a sunset cruise that includes a guided tour of the area’s important landmarks, or wildlife spotting.


No matter how long your getaway lasts, hanging out on the beach is a must. Pack the cooler and your beach gear and prepare for fun on land or sea. Sunbathe on the beach, take a walk or run along the sand, or help the kids build sandcastles before taking a dip in the water.

Day 2: Unique Outdoor Adventures

Outdoor Adventure Course

Start with a suspension bridge that moves with every step you take! Then strap into the special “figure 8” safety device to descend through a rope on a mountain wall. Die-hard adventure seekers will definitely include the step, but some companies allow you to skip it. Finally, grab on and fly back down the canyon on a zipline course. Round-trip transportation, gear, and safety equipment is included.


Gain a whole new perspective on adventure from a bird’s eye view. Take off from the deck of a specially-designed parasailing boat to fly high above the water – up to 500 feet! Keep watch on the water for dolphins, turtles, whales, and other sea life. Stay dry throughout the flight or wear your bathing suit for a refreshing dip in the water before flying up again and coming down safely on the deck. Bring a waterproof or disposable camera to capture the memories from your perspective. Rides are approximately 15 minutes of airtime, but the whole excursion duration depends on the number of fliers.

Snorkel and SCUBA Tours

Tap one of the many charter companies in the area for tours that reach below the shimmering blue and green water surrounding the area. Get close to bottlenose dolphins, sharks, manatees, rays, sea turtles and a variety of fish species that call the waters of Cabo home. Ask about daytime or sunset tours, as well as gear rental. If you hope to depart on a SCUBA adventure with just you and your group, you’ll all need to be certified before you dive on your own.


Pack your sun gear, water, and camera and lace up your hiking shoes. You’ll catch glimpses of local wildlife in its natural habitat, and many other breathtaking sights. Make sure to share the trails, as many are a great path for bikers and horseback riders, too.

Day 3: The Desert

Baha Desert on Camelback

While some beach towns offer a tour down the beach on horseback, Cabo offers a slightly different experience. You’ll still sit atop an animal, but that animal is a camel. The usually four-hour excursion has morning and afternoon departures. Wander through the Baha Desert and Cabo countryside while learning about area flora, fauna, and culture before stopping for an authentic Mexican lunch featuring tequila, tortilla-making, and more.

Beach & Desert 4×4 Tour

Trade the camel or your hiking shoes for an ATV and go places you can’t get to any other way. You’ll cut through the Migrino Desert’s sandy terrain along a winding route to area mountains. Loop back for some adventure negotiating the iconic beaches of Cabo. Tour companies include all the safety gear, off-roading equipment, and purified water to keep you hydrated through the journey, but park entry fees and insurance for your ride are separate fees.

Day 4: Art & Culture

Art District

Wander into the galleries for free drinks and snacks as you take in the best works of local artists and artists from across Mexico. Many galleries feature local artists in sculpture, painting, and more.

El Arco de Cabo San Lucas

The distinctive rock formation at the southern tip of Cabo is a must-see. 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. Make sure to bring a camera for capturing glimpses of sea life like whales, turtles, sea lions, and others.

Museo de Historia Natural

The seven-room museum was originally used to house the first primary school in Cabo, Articulo 12 Naciones Unidas and now hosts a collection of permanent and temporary exhibits. Learn about the paleontology, geology, paleo-biology, and paleoanthropology of Los Cabos. See the remains of marine mammals, birds, reptiles, and more.

Cookin’ Cabo

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 in creating an authentic Mexican meal from your ingredients.

Day 5: Complete Relaxation

Spa Day

After all the adventure, you’re going to need to work the kinks out. Relax and enjoy some well-deserved time at one of Cabo’s many day spas. Choose from the many services each offers, including mani/pedis, facials, body wraps or scrubs, and more. Indulge in a variety of massages that will work out all the muscle tension so you can head home fully relaxed. Some spas even offer a menu of services just for men that caters to their unique needs.

Shopping & Restaurants

You’ll no doubt want to taste the flavors of Cabo and score some fun Mexican souvenirs. Spend the day shopping and dining on local fare. You’ll find souvenirs with Mexican flavor, flair, and bold colors to remind you of your trip. The beach locale means traditional Mexican foods, including dishes made with fresh seafood caught right in the waters of the Gulf of California or the Pacific Ocean.
