Fun Things to Do in Cabo San Lucas

Fun Things to Do in Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas offers much more than lounging by the Sea of Cortez and drinking pina coladas. Activities for singles, couples and families abound in this city and area of Baja California Sur, Mexico. Don't forget to take plenty of sunscreen and a hat to protect your head from the sun's rays.

Cabo Dolphin Center

If you want to swim with dolphins, you can do it at the Cabo Dophin Center. Along with swimming, this attraction offers other interactive and educational activities for people of all ages. Try the "Trainer for a Day" program, in which you'll learn how to train dolphins or the "Dolphin Kids" program, where children ages 4 9 can touch and play with the dolphins. The center is open daily; it prohibits using your own camera for photos.

Adopt a Baby Sea Turtle

Baja Wild offers the opportunity to adopt a baby sea turtle and release it back to the sea from the end of September through November each year. You'll travel to the turtle nest at the beach in a van with a professional and bilingual guide. This trip enables you to watch the other turtles in the nest head to their new ocean home. It's an excellent way to learn about these creatures and teach your children conservation.

Snorkeling and Scuba Diving

Plan to snorkel and scuba dive at Bahia (Beach) Chileno, which is clean and long with clear blue water for snorkeling amidst many ocean creatures. The reefs are rocky and feature such sea life as eels, sea fans, sea stars, sponges and turtles. You can rent equipment at a dive shop on the southwestern end of the beach. Chileno Beach has showers and restrooms but no tissue, so carry your own. After you snorkel or swim, you can relax in the shade of a large palm grove. This beach is halfway between Cabo San Lucas and Jose del Cabo. Rent a car or catch a bus, which will drive you to the northeast section of the beach on Highway 1; it is southwest of Hotel Cabo San Lucas. The Mexican government prohibits driving on any beaches in Cabo San Lucas.
