best things to do in cabos
Definitely this is the most important of the Top ten things to do in Cabo.
You should not miss it if you come to Los Cabos, it is as if you are traveling to Paris and you do not visit the Eiffel Tower, each person who visits us in Los Cabos cannot miss taking a photo next to the majestic Arch. And once you are there you can see a small colony of sea lions that lives in that area.
There are many ways to get to know the arch, from: taking a small panga in the marina that will take you to the arch and leave you on the beach of love, to, take a boat with drinks and party or maybe taking a private yacht, sailing boat, etc.
Please respect the local marine fauna and do not feed the local animals, some sea lions are changing their natural habits because they are being fed by the visitors and they are changing their natural area to inhabit to be in the marina where humans feed them.
2. Spend a day at one of our certified beaches in Los Cabos
certified beaches of Los Cabos
The certified beaches of Los Cabos are so beautiful that you should not miss visiting them.
You can go to Santa Maria, which is the most beautiful place in my opinion and has a parking lot, bathrooms, showers, lifeguard, palapas, etc.
One more of the things to do in Cabo Maybe visiting Chileno which is also certified and is very large and the best place to snorkel since there are many boats to take their guests to snorkel, right in there you will find someone who can rent snorkeling equipment for you.
Another very beautiful beach that has just been renovated and improved is Playa Palmilla, in San José del Cabo area. The place is very nice and it is a little more for local people and they sell some things to eat and many local people have a good atmosphere.
There are also some beaches that are not certified because it is not easy to acces, as you have to go by boat but they are super beautiful like Lovers beach and divorce beach just beside The Arch of San Lucas.
There is also beautiful beaches but not exactly in San Lucas but really beautifil. There is this amazing beach in La Paz known as the most beautiful beach of Mexico “Balandra Beach“, it is around 2 1/2 hours away from Cabo but it is totally worth it to take a day to visit Balandra Beach as well as La Paz city.
3. Party night life in San Lucas
Squid Roe Bar Cabo, night life
If you come to Los Cabos you can´t miss going to the “antro” (in Mexico that is what discotheque or nightclubs are called) in San Lucas.
This area has the best atmosphere, you can start the night visiting a small bar like the Tanga Tanga, Tipsy bar, Cabo Blue, Jungle bar, Happy Ending and then you can pass Rockstone, Saloon, Harbard.
And to finish the night there are several options such as the Pink Kitty, the Vaquita the Mandala and the one that you cannot miss visiting is the Squid Roe.
Remember that we have a Super choice for you that mixes the ocean and the club, this is our Night tour that starts in a Party Catamaran for 2 hours open bar included and after that, we have included in the tour 2 more hours open bar in the club “Squid Roe”. Nobody else can offer open bar in this club, totally unique.
There are many options to try and have a few flirty drinks, so, remember to have a designated driver or travel in Taxi and, Salud!!!!!
4.Visit the center of San José del Cabo
San José del Cabo Town Mexico
The historic center of San José del Cabo has a very traditional beauty and gives you a very small-town atmosphere.
With its church next to the Plaza Antonio Mijares and the restaurants around, the shops to buy, the art galleries, you can´t miss it.
San José del Cabo is very different from Cabo San Lucas because it does not have as much tourism as San Lucas and is truly beautiful and clean.
You can go to buy jewelry, crafts or pieces of art with no haste, and, on Tuesdays you cannot miss it as there is the Art and Walk where several galleries open until late and offer you wine and there are places with tequila tasting and the galleries show the impressive pieces of art they have.
Take one day at least to visit downtown San José del Cabo.
5. Mango Deck Los Cabos

The well-known beach club every day becomes a place to spend the day with its many contests throughout the day.
The food that in there is delicious, and you can get from low-fat food, good cuts of meat, typical Mexican food and also some fresh seafood.
You can spend many hours of fun with good food located right on the main beach of Cabo San Lucas and with a good bar service, by the afternoon a Rock group starts playing or sometimes a music group plays to dance, in all the different places we have ever being we never met a beach club with this concept.
This place takes the fifth position in the list of Top ten things to do in Cabo

Todos Santos Magic Town Tour Mexico
If you are already in Los Cabos you can take a tour to Todos Santos, it is a magical town that has a lot to offer, and there are art galleries and good food.

Todos Santos is an hour far from Cabo San Lucas driving at a regular speed because the highway is 4 lanes and there is no traffic.
You can go day or night, although everything ends very early in the town there is movement until about 9 at night, you can arrive in the afternoon to eat something and then go out to know the place.
Todos Santos is an area that has great projection in the near future because it is an Oasis in the area, the vegetation here is very different from the rest of the peninsula, a lot of retired Canadians or Americans live here because of its beauty and calmness.
