One of Mexico's premier vacation spots, Cabo San Lucas lures pleasure seekers with its trendy restaurant scene, raucous nightlife, and, of course, picture-perfect beaches.
Get in touch with nature at Medano Beach and Fishing Charters & Tours. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Playa del Amor and Playa Palmilla (Palmilla Beach). Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cabo San Lucas: San Jose del Cabo (Ivan Guaderrama Art Gallery, Galeria de Ida Victoria, & more) and Todos Santos (Agua y Sol, Galeria de Todos Santos, & more). There's much more to do: take in the dramatic natural features at El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take in the exciting artwork at La Turquesa Jewelry and Art, and take a memorable tour with Tours.

La Paz

It's no coincidence that La Paz means "peace" in Spanish, as this tourist center with a small-town vibe offers a tranquil atmosphere and blissfully pleasant weather throughout the year.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Swim with Dolphins as well as Dolphin & Whale Watching. Kick off your visit on the 29th (Sun): get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, enjoy the sand and surf at Balandra Beach, then look for gifts at Galeria Casa Parra, then don't miss a visit to Malecon, and finally get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour. On the 30th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: admire the landmark architecture of Centro Cultural La Paz, kick back and relax at Playa El Coromuel, and then cast your line with a fishing tour.
