Here is my ultimate guide to Cabo!
- Currency: Mexican Pesos
- Language: Spanish and English
- Getting around: Taxis and shuttles. When you arrive at the SJU airport and before exiting the building, you’ll be asked if you have a ride. We got a shuttle from there (you can trust it) and they drop off at local resorts and hotels. When leaving your hotel, just ask the concierge and they can arrange for a taxi/shuttle.
- When to Visit: November-April (December-March is peak whale watching season!)
Stay AT HILTON LOS CABOS BEACH & GOLF RESORT
Hilton Los Cabos Beach & Golf Resort was absolutely stunning! Our room was fantastic with a gorgeous balcony view and everything about this place was pristine along with kind, helpful staff. There are 2 pools, one of which is an infinity pool overlooking the ocean (!!!), swim-up pool bars where you can also order lunch, cabanas all over the place, a clean and private beach which was perfect for relaxing, and an amazing beach bar with swings as seats. We spent some good quality time relaxing by the pool and beach and had more plates of nachos delivered to our poolside chairs than we may want to count.
EXPLORE DOWNTOWN CABO
This is a tourist city made obvious by seeing the same type of shops along the streets selling similar things (hats, Mexican blankets, ponchos, etc), and even though I say that, it’s still super fun to walk around and pop in some of them to look around. My mom got a hat that I now envy and wish I had bought.
Walk around the marina – There are tons of bars and restaurants along the marina walk. There’s a sailboat docked here that looks like an old pirate ship called ‘Bucaneer Queen’ which is kind of cool to see if you’re into that (like Jeff is).
Medano Beach – This is the main public beach. Several bars and restaurants also line this shoreline. To be honest, I didn’t love this beach because it was pretty crowded with people but great to walk along to get to some of the restaurants (some options are mentioned below!).
SAIL TO THE ARCH OF CABO
This was probably my favorite memory of this trip. We booked a luxury sailing excursion through Cabo Adventures where we went sailing around Land’s End at sunset. It was magical! They served cocktails and served some delicious appetizers too. Along the trip, you get to see major sights like Lover’s Beach, Divorce Beach, The Arch of Cabo, and if you’re lucky, some sea lions and maybe even whales depending on the season.
