How to Plan for Cabo San Lucas Tours?
Let’s learn the proper way of making plans for Cabo San Lucas Tours.
Fix a Budget
Before starting any tour or vacation, you need to work on your budget. Having a proper budget will make all the difference in your vacation. A proper budget will ensure that you do not run out of money in the middle of your trip.
Allocation of money on meals and activities will allow you to splurge on shopping or other activities.
Whether you are planning to fly there or travel by road, make sure to book everything beforehand. It is better to be safe than sorry, so book everything early so that even if plans go astray, you can manage to salvage your trip.
If you are planning to go for the trip in groups, make sure that everyone is aware of the travel itinerary such as flight time and dates.
Cabos San Lucas has many great hotels and resorts; however, you need to book early to get your desired lodgings. As it is a popular tourist destination with a thriving nightlife and deep-sea fishing, you need to book hotels early as it is populated throughout the year.
Shop or browse for good deals, especially during holidays, or when the tourism season becomes slow, many hotels or resorts offer all-inclusive or discounted packages.
As there are numerous activities to indulge in Cabo San Lucas, find tours that are suited to your taste. One advantage of planning ahead is that you can find good deals on tours.
Do not wait to pack till the last minute, instead pack before so you can double-check everything necessary for the trip. Go through your travel itinerary and pack for dinners, outdoor adventure, deep-sea diving, clubbing, etc. as necessary. Also, be sure to pack first aid kits and other emergency items before you start your trip.
Rent a Car
It is best to rent a car for not only going around the city during your trip but also for going to your hotel or resort after you land in San Lucas.
This is because taxi fare is expensive, and Uber drivers, in general, are not allowed to either pick up or drop customers in airports or resorts. Hence, the best thing is to book or rent a car so that you can relax and travel safely throughout your trip.
9 Must-Try Activities in Cabo San Lucas
Sun, sea, and plenty to do: that is what Cabo San Lucas promises its visitors. There are plenty of things to do there, but for you, we have made a list of top 9 activities you must try during your stay in Cabo San Lucas.
1. Whale Watching
There is no better place to watch nature's beautiful giants other than in the sea surrounding Cabo. As it is both breeding ground and a migratory route for humpback whales, chances of spotting them are very high. You can have this once in a lifetime experience by booking a whale-watching cruise.
2. Sunset Cruise
If you are with your partner or just want to give yourself a special treat, why not book a sunset cruise? You can enjoy watching the sunset on the horizon while sipping wine or beer. And you can book these cruises beforehand or in the marina in Cabo San Lucas. This is a little expensive activity, but hey, you only live once.
3. Swimming with Whale Sharks
To regale your friends with some thrilling stories and pictures of your vacation, why not swim with the sharks? Fear not, even though whale sharks are huge (about 18-33 ft), they are herbivores and so are completely harmless.
These majestic creatures make their way through Sea of Cortex from September to April. So for an unforgettable experience, you should definitely swim with the sharks.
4. Fishing Charter
If you love fishing and do not want to miss it during your vacation, you can charter a fishing trip in the sea. The experienced fishermen will take you to spots where you can catch tuna, marlin, swordfish, etc.
For your convenience, boats have images of different fish and flags to indicate the type of fish they catch. So you can simply chat with the local fishermen and hop on to catch the species you want.
5. Visit Playa del Amor
Lover’s Beach. The name says it all. It has a calm and beautiful water that is perfect for all sorts of water activities or simply swimming.
Enjoy the warm water of the Sea of Cortez before it gets packed by noon. A little away from Lover’s Beach is Divorce Beach, which has choppy and turbulent waters not appropriate for swimming.
6. Explore the Baja Desert
Sometimes you need to get away from the sun and the sea to explore the land. Cabo San Lucas offers you all the beauties of Baja Desert. For an utterly unique experience, explore the culture and landscape of Baja Desert on the back of a camel.
No trip is complete without souvenirs. So head out towards Luxury Avenue to buy from high-end brands such as Chanel, Gucci, YSL, etc. For a more diverse and budget-friendly shopping, you can always roam the street stalls or visit Puerto Paraiso Mall.
