The southern end of the Baja California Peninsula used to be a sleepy region (as are most of the towns around here for that matter), but it is now a top Mexico destination for golf, partying, fishing, & Los Cabos family vacations.
The good thing about family travel in Los Cabos is that it has something for every one, for every interest, for every age.
For a destination that’s only a stones throw away from the US, you’ll hardly go wrong with a Los Cabos family vacation.
Top Things To Do During Los Cabos Family Vacations
• Whale watching
From January to March, the whale season in the Baja Peninsula starts. This an excellent activity that the whole family will easily enjoy.
Los Cabos has excellent beaches for all kinds of activities, but not that many for the little ones. Make sure you ask around or do a little bit of research to see if the beach you plan to swim in is suitable for young kids.
Some of the popular beaches which are good for kids are the Playa Palmilla and Playa Medano.
Playa Medano: This is where all the tourist hub is, and where many resorts are
Playa Palmilla : On San Jose Bay with a very beautiful view.
Tip: Many beaches in Los Cabos have very basic facilities, so bring along some food for the kids and for you as well.
