Cabo San Lucas – once a placid fishing village at the very tip of Baja California has blossomed into one of the world’s most famous spots for nature sightings, mesmerizing scenery, and snorkeling opportunities. It is a perfect place for a family get together and for a celebration of your milestone birthday or to even host a corporate event.
However, behind every great party is a passionate party host and a picture perfect venue! A birthday celebration in Cabo San Lucas on board a private yacht with your best buddies is sure to create lasting memories!
If you’re ready for that weekend or week long birthday celebration, then it is time to prepare for excellent seafood or Mexican fare and an amazing private yacht charter which can contribute with a fresh fish catch that is prepared and grilled on the spot just for you. And for those with a set of wheels, it’s easy to escape the tourist zone and surf in secluded beaches, shop in quaint art towns, visit nature’s most pristine deserts, jagged mountains, or dive in coral reefs in the Sea of Cortez.
Here are the top 10 things to do in and around Cabo with your best buddies ever to make your birthday a most special one
NATURE WATCH AT EL ARCO – For something stately, hop on a private yacht and head out to Cabo’s most famous natural feature, the Arch. “El Arco” is part of a formation known as the Three Friars, which make up the peninsula’s very southern tip, Land’s End. On one side, the Pacific Ocean in all its grandeur; on the other side begins the Sea of Cortez. Despite the crowds of people and the cruise ships, it doesn’t take much to look at these majestic rocks, squint, and envision this area as it must have looked for centuries. Keep an eye out for pelicans and sea lions too.
CHASE WHALE TAIL OFF BAJA – As early as October through as late as March, the annual migration of gray whales occurs, bringing thousands of these magnificent creatures to various shallow lagoons around the Baja Peninsula. Some only go as far as Laguna Ojo de Liebre, far north, in Guerrero Negro, but many go all the way to the Sea of Cortez side and pass right by Cabo San Lucas. Whale watching private yacht charters run to many places around the area, often lasting three or four hours. You might also see whales just by scanning the horizon.
SPECTATE AT ZIPPERS – Surfing activity draws huge tourists from across the world to Baja. Zippers, at Mile 17 on the Cabo Corridor, is one of the best spots to try your hand at this adrenaline rushing activity. You’ll want a south swell and some experience if you plan to paddle out – this is not a beginner’s break – but it’s great to watch even from shore as people glide in on the waves. Caribbean ziplining in rainforests and through Central America jungle canopies is exhilarating. It is a thrilling way to explore the Caribbean rainforest canopy – whizzing from treetop to treetop.
SUN WORSHIP AT DIVORCE BEACH – Come to Divorce Beach with your friends to lazily bask in the sun, and then watch it go down – Cabo sunsets don’t get much better than being viewed from here. The essence of Cabo San Lucas beauty is its ocean. There is no better place in Cabo to spend some relaxing time with your loved ones. The sailing will allow you to fully enjoy our wide activities and food while admiring the colorful sunset sky above. Be warned, however, the currents are deceptively dangerous and even strong swimmers can be easily swept away, so don’t risk it.
SNORKEL IN THE TURQUOISE WATERS – Snorkeling is a fun activity for any age group. Together with your friends enjoy swimming through the sparkling warm water to explore the world’s best underwater aquarium. The views are beautiful up there as well. As you swim, snorkel and power-snorkel (with water scooters) in the clear protected waters, look for rays and sea turtles while enjoying the abundance of tropical fish. Admire the colorful coral and rugged rock formations that house the teeming sea life.
No matter if you are planning to make your milestone birthday a unique one or another special occasion weekend with your closest friends, Cabo San Lucas has it all.
It’s the ultimate getaway and why not make your birthday celebration in Cabo San Lucas a memorable one?
