With its incredible beaches, warm weather, and wealth of romantic experiences, Los Cabos is one of the most perfect places in the world to enjoy a romantic break.
Whether you’re visiting for Valentine’s Day, enjoying a couple’s holiday, celebrating some, or planning something special, everywhere you turn, there’s something amazing to see or do to ensure you have an unforgettable, loved-up trip.
Have A Romantic Dinner
The popularity of Los Cabos has quickly given rise to some of the most incredible restaurants and dining experiences, from authentic local hideaways to Michelin-star restaurants- the Sunset Mona Lisa was even voted the most picture-perfect restaurant in the world!
A romantic dinner is a given on any couples’ trip, and there is plenty of choice in Los Cabos. For a delicious steak dinner on the beachfront, La Casona is the best-rated eatery in the area, or for the ultimate in high-end dining, head to Don Sanchez in San Jose del Cabo, which was recently recognized as one of the best in the world.
Enjoy A Sunset Cruise
What could be more romantic than a sunset cruise on the Sea of Cortez? Cruising around Los Cabos, getting to swim, snorkel, and more fit the romantic bill perfectly, particularly for a special occasion.
Many cruises in Los Cabos can be booked on a small yacht or a catamaran, and often include a delicious lunch onboard. You can either book your spot on one of these relaxing cruises which last a few hours, or to really push the boat out, consider hiring one privately for the whole day.
Relax At Lover’s Beach
Lover’s Beach is just one of the many picturesque beaches in Los Cabos, but it is definitely the most romantic. Lover’s Beach is very secluded, nestled behind a giant rock formation rising out of the sea, so you’ll need a water taxi to get here.
In its slightly off-grid location, it’s a perfect spot to spend the day sunbathing, snorkeling, and swimming without the crowds you’ll find at El Medano or Chileno beaches, plus you can enjoy the water here without worry; unlike a few of the other beaches in the area.
Visit The Spa
There may be lots to do in Los Cabos but sometimes holidays are best for relaxing. Los Cabos has some of the best spa hotels, with everything from hydro pools to private cabanas serving free-flowing champagne.
A few of the best include One&Only Palmilla, which has a tropical garden complete with plunge pools, saunas, and day beds, or the 14,000 sq/ft Nobu spa, which has an extensive menu of couples’ treatments.
Alternatively, if you’re visiting Los Cabos when temperatures are cooler, visit the nearby hot springs, such as those in Santa Rita, for a unique local experience that many people don’t know about.
Go On A Whale-Watching Tour
Whale-watching in Los Cabos is one of the most unique experiences to share, as the region is arguably the best place in the world to see these majestic creatures. The whale-watching season normally runs from November to April each year, so you have plenty of time to take advantage.
Depending on the time of year you visit, you’ll have the chance to see a variety of whales, such as gray and humpbacks, and often dolphins, turtles, and other marine life.
For ultimate romance, avoid a busy tour group and book a less crowded morning or sunset whale-watching trip so that you both get to experience the memory without interruption and will have a knowledgeable guide at hand.
Not all romantic holidays need to be about candlelit dinners and spa days. Sometimes you just need a fun escape with your other half. Los Cabos, unsurprisingly has a wealth of outdoor activities on offer thanks to its diverse landscapes and coastal location.
From water-based activities like diving, snorkeling, paddleboarding, and kayaking, to those on land such as ATV tours, ziplining, and hiking in the Sierra de Laguna mountains, there’s something to satisfy everyone. A particularly romantic option is horseback riding on one of Los Cabos’ many beautiful beaches.
Take A Day Trip To San Jose Del Cabo
Perhaps you’ve visited Cabo San Lucas already or just want to see a more cultural side to the area, either way, taking a short day trip to San Jose del Cabo will provide plenty of things to see and do. The town is filled with cute local boutiques, art galleries and local Mexican restaurants.
San Jose del Cabo is also home to many of Los Cabos’ most underrated beaches, and is where lots of boat charters depart from, plus it has a lively nightlife scene if you’re searching for a romantic bar to enjoy a drink together or feel like dancing the night away.
