A Guide to Visting Los Cabos

A Guide to Visting Los Cabos


Down at the Southern tip of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula is a Hollywood hotspot with so much more to offer than tacos and tequila (but now that I think of it, they’ve got pretty great tacos, too!) Los Cabos is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico and for good reason – beautiful beaches, plenty of activities to uncover and a very lively nightlife (combined with great cuisine, how can you go wrong!?)   Los Cabos Things to Do For the Adventurous If you’re anything like me, you’ll be looking for a list of activities as long as your arm to stay busy on vacation. While I love the idea of being perched up in a hammock reading a book with the breeze as my background, I tend to last a total of ten minutes before I’m off exploring in whatever way possible. One of the first things on my list for Los Cabos was to embark on a paddle boarding mission to the Los Cabos Arch.

Los Cabos Things to Do For the Adventurous

If you’re anything like me, you’ll be looking for a list of activities as long as your arm to stay busy on vacation. While I love the idea of being perched up in a hammock reading a book with the breeze as my background, I tend to last a total of ten minutes before I’m off exploring in whatever way possible.
One of the first things on my list for Los Cabos was to embark on a paddle boarding mission to the Los Cabos Arch. The guys from In Cabo picked us up early in the morning for the adventure toward the beach to see this iconic natural arch from a new perspective.
Another great way to see the arch and a more popular way to do so is to join one of the local boat tours. These depart all day every day and are a great way to see the marine wildlife below with snorkeling and diving expeditions (just let it be known, there are loads of sharks down there!)

Check-In: One & Only Palmilla

Throughout our time in Los Cabos, my friend and I checked in to two very different resorts for a chance to try some new activities and terrain halfway through our trip. The unanimous favorite was our first resort, One & Only Palmilla.
This resort feels a world away from the hustle and bustle of Cabo San Lucas – with its’ own private beach access, surf rentals and lessons, and a daily schedule of yoga and fitness classes to work off all that guacamole you’re bound to consume!

Check-In: Esperanza 

The next resort we checked in to is another one of Los Cabos’ finest resorts, with a more modern and masculine approach to villa living. We checked in to a balcony suite at Esperanza with its’ own private plunge pool and ocean views, though with just a few nights here we found ourselves venturing out of the resort more often than we did kicking back and relaxing!
Esperanza certainly knows how to cater to their clientele – with a broad range of Vegan, Gluten Free and Sugar-Free options on the breakfast menu. On one of our evenings, we tried the menu at Cocina Del Mar, the resort’s fine dining restaurant overlooking the coastline

Visiting Cabo San Lucas for the Best Tacos in Town!

The nightlife hub of Los Cabos is without a doubt Cabo San Lucas (“Cabo” for short), a happening little town with more than its fair share of bars, clubs, and pubs. We were a little more interested in tacos over tequila, so we made our way into town in search of the best tacos in Cabo San Lucas, which we found at La Lupita, one of the most happening little restaurants in town with live music and a fun crowd.
The tacos were super fresh with a good selection of veggie-friendly tacos, however, the atmosphere of this little place is what you really come for. It is a great mix of locals and out-of-towners with a really fun vibe in the early evenings.

The Best Sunset Restaurants 

One of my “rules” (I use the term loosely) when I travel is to catch every sunrise and sunset, so we made sure to do our research on the best bars and restaurants to catch a good sunset view throughout our time in Los Cabos.
This soon turned in to a bit of a challenge to consistently “one up” ourselves and boy did these places bring the goodies!

Chileno Bay Resort Restaurant

For our first night in Los Cabos, we made our way to Chileno Bay, a swanky resort with a James Bond feel to it and one of the most impressive outdoor garden settings I’ve seen this side of the world.
The cocktail menu is vast and inventive, with the head bartender having won a multitude of awards for imaginative twists on the classics. I will, however, give you a friendly warning – one drink and you might find yourself mid-way conversation with a cactus… the drinks are s-tr-o-ng!

Sunset Mona Lisa Restaurant

If there’s a special occasion on the cards and you need the perfect backdrop for it, then look no further than Sunset Mona Lisa. This restaurant is said to have the best sunset view in town and when you’ve experienced it once, you’ll see just how magical it is! There is even a sunset ceremony with a horn blowing as the sun goes down. Be sure to book a table a couple of weeks in advance – this is one of the hardest places to score a seat!

Day Trip: Todos Santos

If you’re spending more than a few nights in Los Cabos and are looking for a more cultural way to spend a day, then venture off to Todos Santos, a small town nearby with acute a colorful vibe and oodles of boutiques showcasing the work of local artists and artisans.
This area, occupying an oasis in the desert, is also renowned for its huge range of organic farms and eateries, so be sure to arrive hungrily!
