Things to Do in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
If you are looking for fun in the sun while on vacation, Cabo San Lucas in Mexico may just be the place for you. With some of the cleanest beaches in all of Mexico, Cabo San Lucas has a wide variety of activities you can take part in, from snorkeling and horseback riding to jet-skiing.

Rock Climbing

It wouldn't be a great outdoors vacation without a little rock climbing. For this you will need to head out to Los Frailes in Cabo San Lucas. Offshore you will see two granite rocks, which is where you will be able to climb rocks; once at the top, you will have a great view of the entire city. There are shops surrounding the area which will provide all the necessary equipment needed to climb the rocks safely. If needed, there are instructors available for those who are just rock climbing beginners.

Boating and Water Action

If you are a boater or a water lover by nature, you will want to visit Playa Medano. This is the most popular beach at Cabo San Lucas. The beach is roughly two miles long and you will find a variety of different locations where you can rent jet skis, fishing boats and parasails. If you are looking to take part in the fishing, you will be instructed on the locations throughout the water which you are allowed to cast your line in, and, if needed, you can pay a guide to take you to the best fishing areas.

Additionally, on land you will be able to go for jogs down the sandy beaches or even ride a bike to take you from site to site (or bar to bar). The best part about renting the bike is when you get tired, you can stop off for a drink and enjoy the sun and the sand.


Playa del Amor is the best location in the city to go snorkeling. This is due to it not being next to the beaches, so the area does not become overcrowded with tourists. To reach Playa del Amor, you will need to rent a water taxi, which will take you to the location. Here you can rent the flippers and snorkeling masks (or purchase them) and enjoy all the ocean wildlife below you. You will want to stay clear of the arches because there is an extremely strong current that will take you out to sea.
