What To Do In Los Cabos When The Weather Isn’t Beach Day Friendly

Share The Article

Los Cabos is a place travelers go to enjoy being outdoors, particularly on the beaches, and most days of the year are greeted with sunshine and warm temperatures. Still, there’s always a chance you’ll get stuck with a rainy day during your Cabo vacation. There isn’t a whole lot to do in Cabo that’s indoors, but you do have a few options to keep busy when it’s chilly and/or rainy. This article will share what to do in Los Cabos when the weather isn’t beach-day friendly so that you can maximize your time on vacation.

While Los Cabos is known for its many popular beaches and water and outdoor activities, there is more to explore in the area. Los Cabos is made up of two different cities that are equally enjoyable to visit, and each offers some options for finding something to do on a day that isn’t really beach-friendly.

Cabo San Lucas has a lot going on in the marina and downtown areas, while San Jose del Cabo has activities to enjoy in the Old Town and city center areas. Below are a couple of ideas for activities you can enjoy if you’re staying in either of these popular destinations.

Los Cabos Museum Tours

You might not think of Los Cabos as being a place to visit museums, but there are actually enough of them to put together your own day of museum touring. A good place to start is the Museum of Natural History in Cabo San Lucas to learn a little history about the region. The museum is open every day from 10 am to 7 pm except Monday. Additionally, there are numerous art galleries and museums throughout Los Cabos well worth visiting, although the bulk of them are in San Jose del Cabo, which is known for its artist community.

Los Cabos Tequila Tastings

Tequila is one of Mexico’s claims to fame, and the “tequila scene” is similar to the craft brew scene that has developed in the U.S. There are many different brands and flavors of tequila to try, and you can take a private tour to try some of them for about $35. The tours typically last about an hour and a half and include food pairings. You can also put together your own tour, which should include Pancho’s Restaurant & Tequila Bar, where they have over 500 brands of tequila, and J&J Casa del Habano, which features artisan tequilas.

Shopping Spree

In addition to your typical souvenir stores where you can pick up gift items for family and friends, there are also some great spots to go shopping for yourself. You’ll find little boutiques in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo that offer things like art, jewelry, and handmade Mexican wares. Additionally, if you’re looking for something special, you can visit Luxury Avenue in Cabo San Lucas, where you will find high-end stores like Rolex and Cartier.

Mexican Cooking Class

What better way to spend a rainy day than eating delicious food? But why not go a step further and do something you have never done before and learn how to cook a different type of food altogether? Mexican cooking classes are offered onsite at various restaurants, like the one at Metate Cabo that costs $75, or if you are staying in a villa or somewhere else with a kitchen, you can take a private Mexican cooking class for as little as $90 for a group of five.

Enjoy Your Resort’s Amenities

Finally, another great way to get through a rainy day is to enjoy the amenities right at your resort. Enjoy a spa day, relax on your terrace and savor some in-room dining, or wine and dine at a fancy restaurant. Some of these resorts even have their own movie theater, recreation room, and live entertainment, so if you’re lucky, you’ll have plenty of options.

Nobody wants to get stuck with a rainy day on their Cabo vacation, but if you find yourself waking up to a day that isn’t beach friendly, there are still options for getting the most out of your day.
