I’ve always had this strong passion for travel and photography. I was fortunate enough to travel a lot as a kid and would enjoy taking photos on family vacations. Not only am I inspired by visiting new destinations but also by immersing in the cultures that make up these places.
In 2012, I began to share my content on social networks such as Instagram. This allowed me to connect with others and discover exciting new places to add to my ever-growing bucket list. Today I have over 300,000 followers on Instagram and continue to share my travel experiences with new people.
Why Los Cabos should be on your Bucket List
There’s nothing better than a Los Cabos vacation. I love to arrive in the middle of the day when the sun is shining bright. That’s when you can appreciate the beauty all around you. My favourite views while flying above the city are the beach of Palmilla and the area of Acapulquito Beach.
Chillin’ in Los Cabos during the COVID-19 Pandemic
I’ve been fortunate to stay in Los Cabos and enjoy this destination during the COVID-19 pandemic. There have been a few restrictions on places you can visit but I have still managed to explore some of the main attractions of this region. The beaches by the Sea of Cortez are always beautiful.
Favourite Place in Los Cabos: Palmilla Beach
There are many beautiful spots in Los Cabos that I would consider my favourite places. For relaxation, my first choice is always the sea. Visiting a quiet beach and enjoying the waves fills me with calmness.
The ultimate beach destination in Los Cabos is Palmilla Beach. I love having dinner and drinks at 7 Seas Seafood Grille. This restaurant is set in a traditional Mexican shelter roofed with palm leaves known as a “palapa”. Here you can enjoy scenic surf views, soft Latin jazz and a calm sea breeze.
Top 10 Things To Do in Los Cabos
1. Have Brunch at Flora Farms Restaurant
Located on a 25 acre organic working farm in the foothills of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains in San José Del Cabo, Flora Farms is my favourite place to have brunch. Enjoy handmade food with fresh farm ingredients in a cozy farm atmosphere. Their menu is seasonal, with some permanent classics.
2. Spend the Afternoon at 7 Seas Seafood Grille
7 Seas Seafood Grille located on Acapulquito Beach is the perfect place to relax for the afternoon. Bring a good book to read and enjoy a few cold drinks and snacks while looking out at the Pacific Ocean.
When it comes time to order your dinner, get ready to choose from a plethora of different seafood options. These dishes include grouper, red snapper, tuna, shrimp, lobster, scallops, mussels, oysters and blue crab.
3. Go Surfing and Swimming at Acapulquito Beach
Acapulquito Beach is one of my favorite spots to take a swim, surf the waves or just lay on the sand for a relaxing day in the sun. This beach is a surfer’s paradise and hosts many surfing competitions. If you don’t know how to surf you can always take lessons at the surf schools.
4. Snorkel in the Azure Waters of Santa Maria Beach
Santa Maria Beach is an amazing place to go snorkeling, play a bit of beach volleyball and work on your tan. The beach is a protected marine sanctuary which offers an array of multi-colored creatures under the sea. You can go on snorkeling charters or just snorkel at the beach – it’s totally up to you!
5. Watch a Gorgeous Los Cabos Sunset at Cape Hotel
If you are looking for a luxurious place to stay on your visit to Los Cabos then you can’t beat The Cape – A Thompson Hotel. You can also visit for sunset and enjoy a cocktail as the sun sinks into the ocean. The rooftop bar and restaurant would have to be one of the most incredible in the world.
6. Take a Boat Trip to the Arch of Cabo San Lucas
The Arch of Los Cabos is the most quintessential place of the region. You can’t miss the opportunity of taking a photo in front of the arch on a boat tour. There are many boat companies that will take you around the arch where you can stop for photos and do some fishing along the way.
7. Wander around La Marina de Cabo San Lucas
La Marina de Cabo San Lucas has many hotels, shops and restaurants to wander through as you admire the views of the water and the luxury yachts. Sit back and relax with a cocktail and watch the world go by in this charming waterfront neighbourhood of Cabo San Lucas.
8. Hike or Mountain Bike the Las Antenas Trail
If you’re an outdoor enthusiast then the Las Antenas trail is the perfect option. You can go hiking or jump on a mountain bike and traverse the trails. At certain points along Las Antenas you will find some amazing views of Los Cabos. This is one of my favourite trails to enjoy.
9. Eat at Nicksan for Japanese Mexican Fusion
Nicksan is the ultimate destination in Los Cabos to enjoy Japanese Mexican fusion cuisine. Award-winning chef Angel Carbajal produces some truly innovative dishes based on traditional Japanese cooking techniques with the vibrant flavours and colours of Mexico. This is known as Nicksan style!
10. Enjoy a Magical Sunset a Cerritos Beach
Cerritos Beach is located on the way to Todos Santos and is totally worth the drive to get to see the magical sunsets here. During the day, the beach is a popular spot for surfers of all kinds. Many people camp in tents near the waters of Cerritos Beach with their surfboards outside their tents.
What you Need to Know Before you Go
Los Cabos is one of those bucket-list destinations everyone should visit at least once in their life. I recommend packing light but smart when you visit. Take your essentials and don’t forget to bring a quality brand of sunscreen, wide brim hat and sunglasses to protect you from the strong sun.
I also recommend booking one of the luxury hotels of Los Cabos if you have the budget. Some of the best are: Montage Los Cabos, Hotel El Ganzo, Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort & Spa and Casa Bellamar.
These recent days I spent at Casa Bellamar have been some of the most beautiful days of my life. I’ve been so grateful to enjoy breathtaking views of the Sea of Cortez and to disconnect from all the troubles of the world. I highly recommend this type of retreat if you want to relax and unwind.
