Cabo San Lucas Activities
Next to Misiones del Cabo Resort, Cabo San Lucas
The name "Monuments" is a reference to El Arco and the surrounding cliffs—both clearly visible from the break. It’s a very rocky spot with a lively urchin population to keep an eye on even at high tide, so it’s best suited for the experienced surfer (if you didn’t lug your own boards get a rental at any of the shops in Cabo San Lucas). Getting here is easy: just type in hotel Misiones del Cabo into the GPS and tell the guard at the gate you’re looking to surf. You'll want to park above the break, next to Misiones del Cabo Resort.
Wild Canyon Park
El Tule Bridge, Cabo San Lucas
Wild Canyon Park is admittedly touristy, but when it comes to the kind of action-filled adventures that tire kids out on vacation, it really can’t be beat. The land itself is beautiful, including beaches, mountains, and the famous canyon, and there’s plenty to keep you busy. Favorite activities include bungee jumping and ATV tours for daredevils, plus an animal sanctuary and a camel ride for the cautious members of the group.
San José del Cabo Organic Farmers Market
Calle Camino del Colegio 225, Cabo San Lucas
Since most tourists come to Los Cabos during the winter months when fresh produce is starting to dwindle back home, the organic farmers market in San José is one of the most appealing places in town. Peruse out-of-season produce, like tomatoes and avocados, or pick up some prepared foods like tamales or insanely good homemade ice cream.
Cabo San Lucas
A visit to the very end of the peninsula where the Sea of Cortes and the Pacific Ocean meet is a necessary trip for anyone visiting Los Cabos. While it’s admittedly touristy, the El Arco rock formation (locals say it looks like a dragon taking a drink of water) is breathtaking. You can hire a water taxi for sightseeing, or a glass-bottomed boat or kayak for a more hands-on adventure. The wildlife, including a healthy colony of sea lions and plenty of birds above water, makes the trip a no-brainer for littles.
