Savvi Souvenir: Los Cabos, Mexico
The desert meets the ocean in Los Cabos, making it the perfect combination of sunny days, cool nights, and dry weather. There’s no other place quite like it in Mexico, which is why so many tourists find themselves flocking to Cabo for fishing, outdoor adventure, food, art, and of course, the beach. This area is where boisterous Cabo San Lucas and quieter San Jose del Cabo are connected by twenty miles of white sand, bright blue ocean and a resort for every budget. And it’s one of Travel Savvi’s favorite places for fun in the sun.
When to go: Los Cabos is a year-round destination since the sunshine is plentiful and the temps mild. Avoid the crowds and take advantage of the weather by traveling in May and June. If you visit between December – April, Humpback Whale and Gray Whale sightings are common.
Beaches: The ocean in Cabo San Lucas is best enjoyed from the refreshing water of your resort pool or strolling the sandy stretches of beach. The ocean is unsafe for swimming in many areas of Cabo due to the powerful undertows and strong rip tides. You can swim at Medano Beach, and you’ll find several restaurants and resorts here. If your inner beach bum needs a day of surfing, try Cerritos Beach and Surf Community, which is just a short drive up the coast.
For Adrenaline Junkies: There’s no shortage of adventure in Los Cabos, especially if you love a healthy dose of adrenaline. ATV across the world’s largest suspension bridge at Wild Canyon, or hop on a fly board and cruise over the ocean. Ziplines are plentiful, as are off-road dune buggies through the sand.
For Those Who Prefer to Chill: No trip to Cabo is complete without a day on the water. Land’s End (El Arco) is one of the most picturesque rock formations in all of Mexico. The best way to see this beauty is from a water taxi or boat tour departing from the downtown marina.
Art & Culture: San Jose del Cabo is full of old world charm and keeps a quieter pace and feel of a traditional fishing village. Keep your Thursday night open for a stroll through the art district as the town hosts a weekly art walk. Or, take a drive to Todos Santos for more unique art and architecture, and grab lunch at the famous Hotel California.
After Dark: Take a stroll near the Marina and you’re sure to find nightlife that appeals to your mood and personality. Restaurants, bars, and night clubs are plentiful near the water. For beautiful views of the sunset, grab a table at Sunset da Mona Lisa or the well-known Office. For late night fun, the eclectic mix of tunes at Nowhere Bar keeps the dance floor packed with locals and tourists.
- Pack a sweater or light jacket when you head out after sunset. It’s often breezy.
- Sea Lions love to gather on the rocks near El Arco. It’s a great opportunity for a fun pic!
- Make Cabo Wabo your late-night stop when downtown. Live music starts at 10:30, but if you want a table, you might want to arrive a bit earlier.
- Cabo’s weather is stunning in the summer! The 80+ degree days and boundless sun makes it perfect for a family trip, romantic getaway or a milestone birthday celebration.
