Los Cabos located on the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico is home to two distinct personalities. One is the raucous Cabo San Lucas featuring all neon lights, eclectic shopping malls, and with late night bars that throng with youngsters dancing the night away. At the other end of the highway popularly known as the ‘corridor’ is San José del Cabo – a quiet, authentic Mexican town.
You can travel from one distinct personality to another by sailing over the crystal clear waters on board your own private Cabo San Lucas yacht rental. Cabo offers beautiful weather, gorgeous beaches, grand resorts, breathtaking sunsets, world-class cuisine, and is much easier to get to than many other destinations. Whichever side you choose, Los Cabos is a very pleasing place to visit with kids as there are plenty of activities to see and do.
WATCH WHALES BREACH – Almost throughout the year, the waters surrounding Los Cabos is one of the best places across the world to spot whales. Each year, thousands of whales migrate from the frozen waters of the Arctic. They travel to enjoy the warming sun throughout the year and more importantly to birth and rear their young in the calm waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula. Of the 11 species of whales in the world, eight can be seen in the waters surrounding Los Cabos, including minke, Bryde, fin, humpback and gray whales.
The crew of your private yacht can arrange for a whale watching charter to make your vacation trip even more memorable.
SPEND TIME AT BEACH – Although the Pacific Ocean is not considered as the best swimming accommodations for the waters can be quite chilly, however, it’s definitely worth spending a day or two at the beach while in Cabos for vacation.
You can plan a visit to Chileno Bay – a popular local beach that is off the radar of most spring breakers. This beach is located along the ‘corridor’ and is a great spot to enjoy leisure time with your family. Here you can actually swim or snorkel in the waters. You can also relax under the shade of palapas and take in the mesmerizing views of the local scenery. The kids will love playing in the tide pools and searching for hermit crabs.
BOAT RIDE AT EL ARCO – The distinctive arch popularly known as El Arco in Cabo San Lucas is the place where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. It is one of Los Cabos’ most iconic spots and is visited frequently by tourists and locals alike. Here you can look for the unique rock formation from dry land in Cabo San Lucas, but really, this sandy colored arch is best seen on board a yacht rental in Cabo San Lucas. While sailing over the water you can capture some great photos. Do keep an eye out for sea lions sunbathing along the way. Playa del Amour (Lover’s Beach), at the base of El Arco, is a great spot for snorkeling and to enjoy a picnic with the rest of the family or friends.
NATURE WATCH AT SAN JOSÉ ESTUARY – Perhaps your most surprising discovery while on vacation in Cabos with your family would probably be the Estuary and Bird Sanctuary in San José del Cabo. It has been designated as a Protected Natural Area. Being the only freshwater coastal lagoon in Baja California, it is home to some 270 different species of birds. You’re most likely to spot frigate birds and brown pelicans but it’s also an important refuge for the critically endangered Belding’s Yellowthroat.
SURF THE BREAK AT ZIPPERS – Surfing is one such activity that draws a large number of tourists to Baja. The world-famous Zippers is one of the most popular breaks. Located just west of San Jose del Cabo, Zippers is only for those who are passionate about zipping. Also, you don’t have to fight the crowds for the position! But even if you’re not a surfer, it’s a fun place to come and watch from shore as veterans master the waves.
These reasons and many more provide evidence as to why you should plan your upcoming vacation with kids to Cabo San Lucas. It’s the ultimate getaway and why not make your vacation and your kids vacations a memorable one by booking a private Cabo San Lucas yacht rental.
