We’ve heard the call ourselves (many times, in fact!), which is why we keep making our way back there. We just love going to Cabo and we’re excited to share our recommendations with you.

Day 1 – Arriving in Cabo

Once you’ve settled into your hotel, you’ll probably just want to take it easy and relax by the pool or check out the resort’s amenities.

Day 2 – Beach and Land’s End

It’s the ideal spot to relax on the creamy golden sand, surrounded by stunning rock formations.

Day 3 – Whale watching and/or other Cabo San Lucas activities

The Cabo whale watching season runs from around mid-December to mid-April, and you can see different types of whales during different times.

Day 4 – San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo is also a much smaller city and 250 years older. Cobblestone streets and colonial architecture give the city center a much more traditional, small-town Mexican feel.

Day 4 – Water activities and spa

Kick-start your morning with a kayaking and snorkeling tour to Santa Maria Bay and Chileno Bay.

Day 5 – Todos Santos day trip

On the last day of your 5-day Cabo San Lucas itinerary, we recommend exploring beyond Cabo and doing a day trip to Todos Santos – one of Mexico’s Pueblo Magicos.
