Fun Activities For Your Cabo Wedding Week
By Alex Navarro
Are you considering getting married in Cabo? Or perhaps you’re already here for your wedding week! If so, you’ll want to show your family and wedding party a good time. Everything is wonderful here and there are so many things you can do in Cabo that will make your wedding vacation even more memorable and amazing!
So let me point out some great adventure ideas for soon-to-be married couple or newlyweds and their families and friends:
Sailing – Head out from Cabo San Lucas Marina or Puerto Los Cabos Marina and enjoy a wonderful day sailing where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortez. Some stops for snorkeling at Santa Maria Bay or Chileno Reef will be the perfect addition to your sailing adventure.
Fishing – As you know, the fishing here in Cabo is amazing. One of the cool things about fishing trips is that you can check out the famous Cabo Arch on your way. This activity has got to be one of the best for a few reasons. First, you get to go out deep into nature in the beautiful ocean waters while enjoying a wonderful time with your loved ones on a nice boat and having some refreshing beverages and delicious food. And by the end of the day you have probably caught a fish to have some fresh sashimi or a great fish plate for diner.
Atvs – Go off roading into Baja’s canyons and sand trails. Just a few minutes from Cabo San Lucas or San Jose de Cabo are many Atv and buggy operators that run the most exhilarating tours. All kinds of terrain can be encountered so it is a great way to go into Baja’s wonderful nature with your fiancé, family and friends.
Jet skiing – Checking out the Arch is something that everybody has to do while visiting Cabo. So renting a jet ski at Medano Bay might be your ideal way to do it, and the most fun too.
Zip lining – is surely also one of the best ways to check out Baja’s desert landscapes. There are many operators to choose from that offer magical and safe adventures.
Snorkeling has got to be one of the all time favorite activities to refresh from the hot sun and sand, and have fun with family and friends. I highly recommend you try it out. We have some amazing snorkeling spots with many species of tropical colorful fish and fascinating coral formations. Some top sites are Neptune’s finger in Cabo San Lucas, Santa Maria bay and Chileno reef in the Cabo corridor, and La Sirenita beach in Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park. If you are into scuba diving, that may be for sure the ultimate way to enjoy Cabo´s seas and have a fun time with you’re future husband or wife.
Waterfalls and hot springs – Santiago Oasis town is just an hour north from San Jose del Cabo and the famous Fox Canyon waterfalls are just 20 minutes from there. There are also relaxing hot springs in the area, so just ask a local resident of Santiago for directions. This is the perfect outing to do something very different during this special time in Cabo.
Sunrise at the Estuary – A wonderful experience for couples is to visit the San Jose del Cabo estuary to see the sunrise and walk the beach all the way to the mouth of the estuary. The sea will be to your right and the estuary to your left as you face the rising sun. The estuary has a series of mystical calm water channels that are flanked by tall palm trees, and the early morning flight of the birds makes this place a true paradise. Pelicans, ducks, geese, ospreys and many other bird species can be seen enjoying their habitat.
Horseback riding – Also great for couples. There are really nice places for horseback riding here, like the beach and desert trails.
Sunset boat – There are many options to choose from, some have great dining and drinking, and others offer wonderful night shows and themed performances. But the most amazing thing is that you go past the famous arch which is very beautiful and unforgettable. This is the perfect activity to make your wedding vacation absolutely memorable, especially this time of year in which you might see the last grey whales that are heading north on their way back home.
So those are some fun ideas to have an adventurous time during your very special stay in Cabo, but finally I would like to deeply recommend you try to visit the popular Art Walk on Thursdays and the Organic Market on Saturdays, both in San Jose del Cabo; as they are very special events and a great way to spend quality time with your loved ones. Have a wonderful time and Congratulations! *
