One of the more iconic stops that should definitely be on your Los Cabos itinerary this Easter is Flora Farms. Situated near San Jose del Cabo, this inviting 25-acres organic farm is known and loved for its welcoming atmosphere, beautiful scenery and flowers, veggies and herbs that are grown right on-site! The farm finds its place at the end of a scenic and bumpy sand road, providing guests with an off-the-beaten path feel that’s sure to delight. While many people visit Flora Farms in the spring to enjoy taking in the seasonal surroundings, this lovely locale also has a field kitchen and farm-to-table restaurant to savor. Everything here is family-style and filled with flavors that are curated using the very land that surrounds the restaurant itself. Flora Farms even offers visitors walking tours with advance reservations! If you’re fortunate enough to find yourself here at Easter, you’ll want to take advantage of the Easter at the Farm event.

It’s an event that fills up fast, so you’ll want to be sure to reserve your place well in advance.
Make it a Beach Holiday
A highlight of heading to Los Cabos any time of year is the opportunity to maximize time on the sand and an Easter here is no exception to that rule! This destination is endlessly appealing to those who can’t wait to savor time on sugar-white shorelines and fortunately, there are plenty of spots to choose from when you’re traveling this way at Easter. From Lover’s Beach to Chilean Beach, visitors will find the ocean views stunning and the sunshine ample. Head over to Medano Beach for a day of fun and consider building sandcastles or shelling if you’re traveling with little ones in tow. Paddleboarding near the beach is another popular holiday activity to enjoy when you want to get on the water and enjoy a new perspective on the view at your own leisurely pace. If you don’t have your own gear, there are a variety of beachside shops that are happy to rent paddleboards to guests by the hour, half-day or for a full-day.
Take Your Adventures Under the Waves
For some, a holiday away is all about adventure. When you’re looking to take your Easter excursion under the waves, Los Cabos has plenty of options to choose from. Scuba diving is a popular activity in this area with good reason. Under the waves that surround Los Cabos, there’s opportunities to get close to everything from tropical fish and sand falls to sea turtles!

Those who prefer to make their on-the-water adventures focused on snorkeling will want to add a stop at Santa Maria Bay to their Easter itinerary. It’s considered one of the top snorkeling destinations in the area with good reason.

December 2019 and January 2020 Travel Itinerary in Cabo
There’s a lot one can learn from nature during winter. While most of us layer up and stay at home, binging on Netflix, birds and whales start their annual migration. And if you follow the whales this winter, you will most likely find yourself in the toasty, warm paradise that is Los Cabos. Wondering what you’ll do there? We have you covered! Read on for the best things to do in December and January in Los Cabos.
December is a Great Time to be Outdoors in Cabo
Desert Adventure in ATV
If you like the thrill of offroading and dirt-racing, Los Cabos can be a dream destination in December. The cool desert weather is great for spending long hours outdoors exploring the terrain, wildlife, and the unique topology of the land. Since there are plenty of ATV tour operators to choose from, be sure to check the reviews before signing up. One of the most promising seems to be Wide Open Baja, with their racing car experience and great reviews.
Soak Up the Winter Sun
Outdoors don’t always have to be about pumping adrenaline and racing-up heart rates. Sometimes all you need is to relax by the pool and soak in the sun, right? Winter in Los Cabos is perfect for getting a tan while chilling by the ocean breeze, and maybe catching up on your reading list. If you have a luxurious getaway in mind, check out these villas with access to the best beach clubs in Cabo, such as the Club 96 beach club and club Espiritu fitness club and spa.
Zipline Through Majestic Views of the Valley
There’s a lot more to Los Cabos than just relaxing on the beach or by the pool. The ziplining adventure in Cabo can offer pristine views, the thrill of flying through the scenic landscapes, and create memories that last a lifetime. Cabo Adventures claim to have the longest and fastest line in Mexico, appropriately named as the ‘Superman’. The best part of the zipline tour is traversing a UNESCO-protected nature zone, through an immersive experience.
Take Art Walks & See Christmas Decorations
The best description of the Los Cabos’ art walk on Tripadvisor has to be “The Grown-up side of Cabo”. Taking place every Thursday, the art walks are a favourite of first-time tourists, as well as returning art lovers. The cool December evenings make them even more rewarding, since you won’t feel the drain of walking or cycling. If you happen to visit close to Christmas, you may even get a chance to see some Christmas decorations, and mingle with the revelers in artsy downtown corners.
While vacations are a time to indulge, and to let go of your routine, there are always opportunities for fitness lovers in Los Cabos. December often brings with it running events that offer a healthy way to explore a new city and socialize with fellow runners.
If you’re planning a trip this December, be sure to sign up for the event organized by Destinomagazine. Since the proceeds from the run will be used for Los Cabos Children’s Foundation, this particular run will benefit the soul as much as the body.
Watch Whales in Crystal-Blue Waters
The peak whale-watching season kicks off in December. While it’s possible to see whales before December, the chances improve as winter progresses. If you need help in planning your itinerary for whale-watching, be sure to check out our detailed guide.
Apart from the outdoor activities, December in Los Cabos is full of parties and Christmas revelries, culminating in one of the most exciting New Year’s parties you will ever attend. If you’re planning a trip this December, see our post on the hottest things to do in Los Cabos.

Go for a New Year’s Brunch
If you plan to stay in Cabo after the New Year’s celebrations, a great way to balance the vibrant night of partying is to give yourself a hearty and healthy brunch on the first day of the new year. There are plenty of options to choose from; but if you’re looking for some quiet time away from the hustle bustle of Marina, Flora Farms offers a traditional New Year’s brunch every year. Flora Farms is a favourite destination for tourists interested in fresh-from-the-farm delicacies, so it tends to be booked well in advance. It’s advised to get a reservation as soon as you finish your planning.
Blessing the Furry Friends
Every year January 17th is celebrated with much fanfare in Los Cabos, especially by people with pets.

In recent years, it has become very common to see some exotic pets such as snakes and lizards being blessed in Los Cabos, a sight not to be missed for animal lovers.
Enjoy 5 Days of Music in Tropic of Cancer Concert Series
If you have a road trip and some authentic local music in your mind for your Los Cabos trip, then Tropic of Cancer Concert Series is a great opportunity to get both. Held at the charmingly quaint town of Todos Santos, the concert series has a massive lineup of local and nationally touring artists. The event is hosted by rock band Cordovas and presents a unique opportunity to experience the local music scene. A fun fact: The route to Todos Santos has a peculiar pop-culture landmark in the form of ‘Hotel California’. The hotel surprisingly has nothing to do with the chartbuster by Eagles, but it’s visited by tourists nevertheless.
