Even though Cabo San Lucas is famous for its romantic resorts and fantastic nightlife, it’s also an excellent family-friendly destination. There are lots of Cabo San Lucas toddler activities, as well as fun for bigger kids and adults. The hotels are well-equipped with kids clubs with supervised activities, and many have readily available babysitting options.
If you’re going to be with small children in Cabo San Lucas then the choice of hotel is important. You’ll want one with a shallow pool for younger children, and a good kid’s club with supervised activities for toddlers. One thing to note is that not all of the resorts have lifeguards, so it’s a good idea to ask before you book. Thanks to the destination’s Pacific Ocean location, there are also only a few hotels with swimmable beaches, another thing to check before you book.
