“Artsy small village feel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Go to the main square to see the surrounding art galleries and tourist type stores. Thursday evenings Art Walk is worth doing to get that Mexican fell.

“Nice walk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

On a late afternoon when the hear subsides, a walk around the bahia is good fun. The views are good and change as you walk and there are street vendors and other people to share the fun. We walk from the Marina to the new Mercado and back.

“Contrasts in Cabo”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

We arrived in Cabo San Lucas by cruise ship which is a tender port, but which only took about 5 minutes to the pierside. We did not have a trip until the afternoon, so just walked along the promenade lined with shops and restaurants. Most of the shops were selling souvenirs and the cafes had loud music blaring out, reminiscent of a Mexican Benidorm! Walking to the end of one side, we came to a weighing machine, which stated that the marlin hanging from it weighed 120 lb! Round the corner the fishermen were selling the catch of the day, mainly mackerel, which were huge and resembled large salmon. They were also gutting the marlin, and the pelicans were trying their hardest to pinch the roe, without much success as it was too heavy for them to break off. As we came into the pier, there were several large seals, one in particular was hanging onto the stern of a returning fishing boat, and was desperately trying to get in, with both flippers and half his body on the back of the boat!! There were several round the fishermen gutting the marlin and were vying with the pelicans for any morsel they could get. Other passengers ventured further afield on foot and said the town became less tacky and more refined so our view of Cabo as sleazy was based on a limited exposure.

Our whale watching trip started by getting on a catamaran in the harbour with about 75 other Silversea passengers, so the boat was not full. We headed out into the Pacific, and not into the Sea of Cortez, which we had expected, but to travel the full length of the Sea of Cortez would have taken several days. The boat could, though, have headed towards the mouth of the Sea of Cortez, where the land-based passengers saw more whales than we did! We were well looked after during our trip and had no complaints about onboard facilities serving us margaritas and/or soft drinks. We saw a few whales, but those who did a cookery course at a local hotel saw more including calves. The tip therefore is to research a waterfront hotel and go there if you want to whale watch!!

“A nice place for a vacation!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

The beaches, resorts, funky shops, great bars, and Mexican hospitality make this a prime vacation spot. You will feel and be very safe, and their is a wide range of activities, from sport fishing (some of the world's best!), to dining and exploring to meet just about everyone's tastes. This was our first visit since the early 1990's, and Cabo has done a great job of building itself into a prime vacation destination!
