What better way to spend a summer vacation than lounging on the beach?  Cabo San Lucas is the perfect beach destination for families with kids of all ages, offering a number of beaches along with ATV tours and water activities to keep everyone entertained.

There are different beaches which are appropriate for different activities in Cabo San Lucas, some of which include:

  • Cannery Beaches – More for locals than tourists, kids can swim here and see fish at the same time.
  • Chileno Beach – Clear water beach popular for both swimming and snorkeling.
  • Medano Beach – This soft-sand beach is perfect for building sandcastles, as well as for swimming.
  • Playa Barco Varado – Standard beach with all the usual beach features.
  • Playa del Amor – Swimming, snorkeling and sun tanning are all popular here.  This is better for families with kids who are a little bit older, as it is a quieter beach than some of the other areas.  While here, visit Land’s End, a natural rock formation known for its exquisite beauty and an area which the kids are sure to remember long after the trip has ended.
  • Playa Palmilla – Kids might enjoy watching the divers in this enclosed beach area.
  • Santa Maria Beach – Primarily a snorkeling beach.

Visitors can also take the kids to go whale watching at El Arco ( http://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction... ), a natural rock formation popular with tourists. 

Travelers interested in taking the family to do things other than just play on the beaches might enjoy a day trip to La Candelaria, an ancient witchcraft village.   Another day stop might include Vitrufusion Glass Blowing Factory ( www.glassfactorycabo.com ) which offers on-site glassblowing demonstrations for the interested traveler.
