What to do with the family in Los Cabos?

Make your Cabo vacation extra special by traveling with your loved ones. After all, there are so many memorable family activities in Los Cabos, a place surrounded by sea, desert and mountains. With such diversity in landscape, the possibilities are limitless if you’re looking for excellent adventures for visitors of all ages.

A great way to get your family introduced to the magic of Los Cabos is by taking a city tour of both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. You’ll get to natural areas, markets, a glassblowing workshop, and even taking a glass-bottom boat to see the incredible sea life below. If you’d like your family to have an exclusive outing by sea, take a private charter boat that will take you sailing to behold all of Cabo’s iconic sights, such as The Arch, Pelican’s Rock, Neptune's Finger, the sea lion colony and the gorgeous Lovers and Divorce beaches.

If your family would like to get a feel for the natural world of Los Cabos, how about interacting with its fauna? That’s why an encounter with dolphins could be just what your family needs, especially the little ones who will delight in getting dolphin kisses and hugs. Or how about a camel ride, relaxing during a gentle outing through the desert and viewing the great scenery of the wild side of Cabo. A little farther from Cabo is La Paz and Espiritu Santo Island, a protected biosphere where your family can swim with its residents — sea lions! Take a dip and snorkel to see all the colorful sea life swimming next to you and the friendly sea lions of the area. Finally, for a seasonal treat, have the grandest animal encounter around by taking a whale watching expedition. Available during the winter months, this is a unique chance to see some of the largest animals on the planet, a special sight to behold.
