Dolphin & Whale Watching, Cabo San Lucas

4.6
Escape the crowds of Mexico's premier vacation spot by going on a whale- and dolphin-spotting excursion from Cabo San Lucas. Pick your favorite kind of marine vessel and keep your eyes peeled for playful dolphins, agile orcas, and giant humpbacks as your marine biologist explains their behavioral patterns. Longer tours include snorkeling and swimming with gentle whale sharks, sightseeing near La Paz, and visiting the famed Hotel California in the desert town of Todos Santos. Shorter tours still leave you plenty of time to observe sea life in its natural habitat and enjoy a tasty meal with the benefits of an open onboard bar.

Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
