The Best Things to Do in Los Cabos

From scuba diving to whale watching to playing through on one of the golf courses that overlooks it, the Sea of Cortez is one of Los Cabos' most inviting attractions. But there are others, of course. So many others. One of Mexico's best beaches sits amidst the tourist corridor and the artists colony of Todos Santos is just an hour north of Cabo San Lucas. And there are plenty of other day trips on the Baja Peninsula too. Don't worry. You can visit again...and again.
