Los Cabos is always a perfect destination to kick back by the pool (or the ocean), read a good book, have drinks, or simply relax, there is also a huge array of activities to pique your interest—by land, by air, and by sea.
Sunset Dinner Cruises
We can’t get enough of the Los Cabos sunset cruise options, and that’s saying a lot because there is a seemingly endless supply of offerings: SunRider is a smooth, eco-friendly ride. Cabo Escape boasts an exceptionally accessible ticket price and all-you-can-drink fun with a party vibe. Cabo Sails is perfectly personalizable. Caborey is known for its five-star dining and floor show. Eco-Cat has a family feel and smooth, smooth ride that is perfectly complemented by the sister restaurant: Eco Bar. And Pez Gato is one of a fan-favorite fleet. Cabo Escape (www.wildcabotours.com). Cabo Rey (www.caborey.com). SunRider Tours (www.sunrider tours.com). Cabo Sails (www.cabosails.com).

Kayaking in Cabo San Lucas Bay from Médano Beach toward Lover’s Beach is a paddling, sun-soaked treat that includes the visual beauty of Land’s End Arch, the sea lion colony, surrounding water taxi, and snorkeling activity. EcoCat (www .ecocatcabo.com)

Pirate Ships and Party Boats
Like the sunset cruises, the Los Cabos party boats are all about fun, fun, fun and ideal for bachelor and bachelorette soirees—or a family outing. They offer an always-exhilarating wild and boisterous time with DJ music, plenty of alcoholic beverages, and tasty appetizers aboard a classic pirate ship.
