What To Do On Your Vacation
to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico
Have you ever heard someone say, "Once, when I was in
Cabo...."? Cabo San Lucas, Mexico seems to get pared
down to just "Cabo" by the people who love to vacation
there. It is an affectionate nickname for a little piece of
a desert town at the end of the Baja California peninsula
that lives up to it's own hype by being full of fun in the
surf and sun.
When you begin to think about what activities you might expect
to find on your vacation to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, you will
invariably start with the beach and ocean. Scuba diving with
manta rays has become an unusual activity that could be a
once in a lifetime type of encounter. Whale watching excursions
are also popular and can provide a lifetime of memories to
take home. And snorkeling expeditions can be exhilarating
But what brings most visitors to Cabo San Lucas is the sport
fishing industry. Marlin, Dorado, Tuna, and many other species
of fish are caught year round in the waters surrounding Cabo.
Fishing boats are available for charter and can cater to any
whim you may have. You can tussle with these monster fish
all day and be pampered with a catered meal once you're done
hauling them in.
Combining the desert, ocean, and mountains makes the Baja
peninsula a beautiful and intriguing destination and provides
the backdrop for many quaint villages and towns in the area
that can be explored by taking day trips. Taking a drive or
joining a tour to visit towns like La Paz and Todos Santos
can give you a glimpse of village life in Mexico that still
exists in this technological age. Exploring old church squares
and local shopping areas can be a lot of fun.
Cabo San Lucas is quickly becoming the golf capital of Mexico.
It has six championship courses that are very close to each
other and they all share the beauty of the area. They all
have ocean views and three of them have holes right on the
ocean. And while you can take advantage of these great courses
now you can also look forward to more courses that are now
in the planning stage. So stay tuned!
If you fall so in love with Cabo San Lucas that you want
to come back every year, you might want to look into getting
a timeshare. Vacation ownership is a way that travelers can
purchase time at a resort that they will, in essence, own
however many weeks a year are purchased. This has many advantages,
such as guaranteeing your same accommodations every year,
allowing you to "give" your week to friends or family
if you won't be using it, or trading your week to be used
at another resort(although this usually requires you to be
a member of a timeshare trading cooperative).
Cabo San Lucas has earned the reputation as a "party
town" especially with the unofficial endorsement of famous
rock and roller Sammy Hagar, who has adopted the town and
opened up his own nightclub and restaurant there. But never
fear if you don't like the all night party scene because there
is plenty to do for everyone in this great vacation destination.
