Take A Land’s End Sunset Cruise 

Land’s End and the famous Arch Of Cabo San Lucas is the most iconic sight in Los Cabos, and the best time to see them is when the sun is going down, according to locals.   

While you can easily see it from the shore of San Lucas Bay, Medano Beach, or a number of restaurants along the coast, it’s even more awe-inspiring when you see it up close.   

There are numerous boat tour options available, ranging in price from about $60-$129, that will take you on a sunset cruise past these incredible rock formations.

Visit San Jose Del Cabo During The Art Walk 

San Jose del Cabo is the more authentic and charming of the two Cabos and is worth a visit anyway, but if you can visit during the Art Walk, locals suggest doing it.   

The Art Walk San Jose del Cabo takes place on Thursday evenings from November through June.   

Throughout the historic town’s gallery district and city center, local artists display their works for visitors to see as they wander through the cobblestone streets of this charming town.

Take A Local Cooking Class 

Just as they say that the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, the best way to get to know a destination is through its food.   

And what better way to truly experience the regional cuisine than to participate in preparing a meal like a local yourself?   

There are numerous cooking classes that can be taken to do just that.   

Two popular farm-to-table cooking experiences, where you’ll get to harvest your own produce to prepare the meal, are Tamarindos and Monte Cardon.

Heal The Mind, Body, And Soul With A Temazcal Ceremony 

Many travelers visit Los Cabos for a wellness vacation, and the destination has a lot to offer for those looking to heal the mind, body, and soul.   

One way to do that is through a ritual practiced by locals for centuries called a temazcal ceremony.   

Similar to a sweat lodge, a temazcal ceremony, which incorporates local herbs into the lodge experience, is said to provide many health and spiritual benefits.
