What are the best things to do in CABO when on a Mexican Riviera cruise?

Aaah… Cabo. Just saying “Cabo” conjures up visions of warm sunshine, sandy beaches, Coronas and relaxation. If you’re thinking about a cruise to the Mexican Riviera, more than likely you’ll be stopping in Cabo San Lucas. Its the perfect destination for water activities, viewing marine life and in land activities with spectacular views. Here are top five favorite things to do for the day while in port for at Cabo San Lucas.

I have to tell you what great experiences we have had working with Jeremy Hayes over the years. She is always on top of things, answering all questions we have, and never is too busy to return our calls. We will continue to work with her, and already have two more cruises booked by Jeremy. We love you!! — Jean

1. Swim with the dolphins. Whether, it’s snorkeling (or power snorkeling with a sea scooter) in open waters with all the species found in “the world’s aquarium,” or swimming with the dolphins in a controlled atmosphere–get in the water with the marine life. If you want to swim with the dolphins, Cabo Adventures just opened their new dolphin center. They are also offering a new tour where you can swim with whale sharks.

2. Whale watching season begins the first part of December and goes through March. Your best chance of seeing whales is January and February, during the peak of their season. Cabo Adventures can also take you to where the whales are hanging out.

3. Take an ATV ride through the desert and along Milano Beach. Camino Adventura ATV provides everything you need for a fun day the whole family will love. Beginners are welcome and instructions are given on how to operate these easy to drive ATVs. There are double-rider options for those hesitant to control the vehicle. However, once you realize how easy it is, you’ll wish you had your own.

4. GOLF! Cabo is a golfer’s paradise if you love to golf with an ocean view. The three golf courses that are closest to the Cabo cruise port are:

Cabo del Sol Desert Course has been rated by Golf Digest as one of Mexico’s top five golf courses.

Newly refurbished Cabo San Lucas Country Club is an 18-hole course with immaculate manicured course with views of the mountains and the ocean to put you in golf heaven. It’s the closest as well as the least expensive of the three courses.

Diamante has a spectacular 18-hole Dunes Course along the Pacific coastline. New in Fall 2014, is Tiger Woods’ championship golf course, El Cardonal.

5. On a Salsa and Salsa tour you learn how to make 7 Mexican salsas and learn to salsa dance at the same time. Plus, it includes all you can drink margaritas! They also have a beautiful locations in Mazatlan and Cozumel.
