Enjoy Time Scuba Diving
When you’re fortunate enough to leave cold weather and snow behind in the name of fun in the sun this winter in Los Cabos, all of those summertime adventures can be continued! That includes scuba diving for those who prefer to plan their excursions under the waves. In fact, the Sea of Cortez is known and loved as a prime scuba diving location for both experienced divers and those in the process of learning for certification alongside an instructor. Wherever your skill level falls on that scale, spending time scuba diving through your winter vacation is sure to thrill. Getting a closer look at the amazing creatures and habitats that exist just below the waves is truly a remarkable way to spend time during your winter getaway. Waters around Cabo San Lucas in particular are home to everything from whale sharks and coral reefs to octopi, sea turtles, sea lions, and more!
Make the Most of Whale Watching Adventures
One of the most exciting aspects of a trip to Los Cabos in the winter is that you’ll be arriving in town alongside a collection of migrating whales! This time of year, a variety of whale species hit the waters in pursuit of the perfect places to have their calves before returning on the route once more. Enjoying time watching these magnificent creatures could easily be the highlight of your getaway experience. The best whale watching times in Los Cabos fall between December and March, putting winter travelers in prime time to make the most of the exciting views. The best way to whale watch is by booking a tour with a company that specializes in this type of excursion. The boats used by these local companies are often designed to protect people and whales alike while the professionals onboard know exactly where to go and when to spot the most whales at once. Many tours even offer guests a chance to utilize a hydrophone along the way which allows you to listen to whale songs as they travel underwater!
Explore the Gallery District in San Jose del Cabo
While time on the water is a delight in the winter months in Los Cabos, this area is just as rich in history for those with a passion for pursuing culture, arts, and the past. One of the best places to spend time exploring when you’re looking for some historical or creative inspiration this winter is the gallery district in San Jose del Cabo. This area is generally thought of as a more traditional space within the greater Los Cabos area as it’s packed with historical landmarks, unique traditional architecture, and specialized stores featuring handcrafted goods as well. The gallery district in this area highlights some of the most intriguing Mexican art traditions in abundance—all of which are well worth checking out while you’re here. On Thursday evenings between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm, the gallery district hosts an Art Walk where stores are open later than usual, inviting visitors to come and linger and admire work while making the most of delicious options available along the street too.
Set Aside Time for the Beach
Because the cold and snow simply aren’t a risk here this time of year, taking time to unwind on the beach is a popular winter activity to enjoy when you’re in Los Cabos! Sunseekers will be thrilled to find that time on the sand is a delight in the winter months. That means you can feel free to grab a beach chair and towel and head over to popular stops like Chileno Beach or Medano Beach when you’re looking to soak up the sun in style. Those on the hunt for a more tranquil locale will find it waiting for them at destinations like Palmilla Beach with ease.
