When it comes to things to do in Cabo San Lucas, there are some pretty amazing tourist attractions and Cabo excursions, not to mention the best restaurants in Cabo San Lucas and the best beaches. With all the amazing things to see, do, or try, it can feel like a trick for Houdini to fit everything in during your vacation, so we’re about to hand you the key to seeing the very best while you’re here. 

The Three Best Cabo San Lucas Beaches

When you ask yourself what you should not miss in Cabo San Lucas, the very first thing that comes to mind is the beach, but when there is so much golden sand surrounded by azure waters, how do you even begin to pick the best one? You don’t. It’s always better to take a look at the top three! 

Playa El Medano (Medano Beach)

Many consider this the best beach in all of Cabo due to its selection of luxury hotels, bars, and restaurants close by, but its best feature is the water. These turquoise tips are rarely large enough to do more than body surf, making it one of the most swimmable beaches in the area.

Playa de Los Amantes (Lover’s Beach)

Near the tip of Land’s End is one of the sweetest little spots that may no longer be a secret but still warrants a visit for the hidden cove wrapped in the arms of looming rock faces. To experience this gem, you will need a boat or paddle board as it’s only accessible by sea.

Playa Costa Azul

For those who prefer their beach with a board, this is one of the best Cabo San Lucas beaches to find a little surf.

Best Restaurants in Cabo San Lucas

When it comes to things to do in Cabo San Lucas, eating is definitely one of them. While there are numerous restaurants that deserve your attention these are the top three. 

Carbon Grill Restaurant

When you want the very best of land and sea with a view that is incomparable and a vibe that says relaxed, beach side elegance, then this is where you go. As one of the best restaurants in Cabo San Lucas, you won’t be disappointed.

Metate Cabo

Traditional Mexican cuisine in an atmosphere that is both outdoors and upscale, this place will tantalize your eyes and your palate. 

La Lupita Taco & Mezcal

When in Rome… You can’t really come to Mexico and not eat tacos, and when in Cabo, that means Baja fish tacos. Enjoy!

Free Things to Do in Cabo San Lucas

Sometimes the very best activities while in a new place are the ones that require nothing more than stepping out your front door. Sure there are Cabo San Lucas beaches, tourist attractions, shopping, food, and numerous other things, but when it comes to what should you not miss in Cabo San Lucas, it really is about the great outdoors. Cabo excursions, such as:

  • Snorkeling
  • Paddle boarding
  • Kayaking
  • Fishing
  • Walking the beach at sunset

Are all worth it, but be sure to check out the whales December through April.

When in town, don’t miss the San Jose del Cabo Art Walk where you can spend the evening in galleries and exploring exhibits that brighten up the night. 

Cabo Excursions and Tourist Attractions

This is a vacation destination that demands some outdoor exploration. Some of the best excursions are those that get you a little out of town whether that’s on an ATV, in a helicopter, or even on the back of a camel. That’s right, a camel ride down the beach. No one is going to forget that!

If adrenaline is more your style, choose a race through the desert trails in a dune buggy or get strapped in to parasail over the Sea of Cortez. For the athletic traveler, try a hike through Fox Canyon or rent an electric bike and follow your own tour!
