The Best Activities and When To Do Them in Cabo San Lucas

Whale Watching 

One of the most spectacular things to see in the world, and often described as a mesmerizing experience, is whale watching in Cabo San Lucas. These majestic creatures make their way close to the shore where you can see them right from the beach, or even for a more exhilarating experience, out on the water with a tour guide. 

The best time to see whale watching is from mid-December to Mid- April. During these times, you can often find the perfect tour or spot to see firsthand whales jumping out of the water, seemingly waving to you before taking a splash. If you think you are a pro at cannonballs, you will think twice when you experience whale watching. 

Fishing Tournaments

Are you a master angler? Well, if you like to hit the open sea and try to snag yourself a delicious salt-water treat, Los Cabos is the place to do it. During the late summer and early fall, if you visit Los Cabos you will see plenty of locals and tourists taking on fishing tournaments. The ultimate test against international fishers to see who the best fisherman is! 

Turtle Hatching 


Another beautiful and natural event that takes place late August through to December is turtle hatchlings. Oftentimes, mothers, who themselves were born on the same beach, travel back to the beaches of Los Cabos to lay their eggs. Though turtle hatchlings are a very sensitive time, you can still be a part of the experience in your own way. 

It is asked that when you visit Los Cabos, you take extra care when walking on the beach, and if you encounter a turtle egg, or a baby trying to reach the ocean, you do not disturb it. There are programs in place to ensure the safety of these creatures, and most times, you can volunteer to help those who are protecting them from seeing firsthand their wonderful journey. 

A Beach Getaway 

Los Cabos boasts endless beaches for travelers to enjoy, and if you are looking for a beach getaway, look no further than Los Cabos. During May and June, when winter crowds have left and the rainstorm season hasn’t begun, it is one of the best times to build a sandcastle and enjoy a nice cocktail on the beach.
