Our Trip to Cabo San Lucas

Our Trip to Cabo San Lucas

Our trip to Cabo San Lucas in #Mexico was one of a kind. I would never forget the beautiful #beach and soft sand. The highlights of our trip included chartering a #boat, spotting some humpback #whales, and an unique #camel safari with the coolest camels I have ever seen.

Cabo San Lucas has so much to offer for a multi-generational trip. Our family of ten, comprised of three generations, traveled to Cabo San Lucas for a Spring Break trip in April 2015. My immediate family of two adults and two children stayed at Villa del Arco located on the Gulf of California side of the city. Our room had a full kitchen, two bathrooms, a pull- out couch, and a king bed in a separate bedroom. It was perfect for cooking meals and saving money on dining.

It was perfect

The beach in Cabo San Lucas has beautiful, soft sand, but the ocean can be a little rough for younger kids. I recommend staying at a hotel that has a nice pool for the kids to play in versus having them swim in the ocean. I also recommend staying on the Gulf of California side versus the Pacific Ocean side. The Pacific Ocean side is known for having rougher currents than the Gulf side.

The highlight of our trip was chartering a boat for a few hours in the evening. 

The highlight of our trip was chartering a boat for a few hours in the evening. We got very lucky and saw humpback whales, although it was late in the season for them to still be around Cabo San Lucas. Our captain was able to get close enough in our small boat for us to admire these huge creatures. It was amazing! One of the whales even had a baby close by. We also got to sail close to the famous Arch (pictured above) and around to the Pacific Ocean side to watch the sunset. 

Camels in Mexico?

Camels in Mexico? Another unique excursion we did was a Camel Safari. We were whisked away on a motor coach with about forty other people about an hour north of the city. The bus ride was hot and not ideal, but the excursion was well worth the trip. Guides took us on safari buses through the desert to the beach where we got to hop on some of the coolest camels I have ever seen. There were two riders to each camel and it was so much fun. The kids loved it too. Then, our guide took us on a walking tour of the flora and fauna around the park ending at a covered pavilion where locals cooked us some of the best quesadillas I have ever had! Also, there was a tequila tasting experience where we learned about this local favorite and tasted about five different kinds. For the kids, they showed them how to make corn tortillas from scratch.    

For dining, I recommend The Office Restaurant on the beach for families. It has a casual atmosphere, and El Farallon for fine dining. Both restaurants take reservations and I highly recommend making the reservation before you depart.
