Spring Break in Cabo San Lucas

Spring Break in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico

Last year for Spring Break we ventured off to sunny Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. It was plenty warm, and there were ample things to do. Before our trip I was a little worried about the party scene, and exploring with kids. I wasn’t sure of what to expect or how places would be mid-day when we ventured away from our resort.

Now that the trip has come and gone, I can happily say that Spring Break in Cabo San Lucas was a lot more laid back than I expected. There were tons of activities and things to do that did not revolve around the infamous  party scene. I’ve partnered with Women On Their Way to share a few of our favorites with you today, as well as a more in-depth guide and quiz on their blog.

Most resorts are all-inclusive, but it’s worth a venture outside of resort cuisine.

Tacos Gardenias
They don’t have 5 stars on Yelp for no reason.
Paseo de la Marina, 23479 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico

For food of the fancier fare. Don’t miss the flaming coffee.

Sitting on the beach is our top activity in Cabo, and the best part is that it’s usually free! Some beaches you can go into the water, like Medano beach, and others you should steer clear of the water, especially if you have children. The beach we chose was not swimmable so we stayed about fifty yards away from the water, just to be safe (no escaped toddlers!).

Medano Beach
A swimmable beach within walking distance of downtown.
Av. del Pescador, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Puerto Paraiso
Large upscale shopping area, good to get out of the sun.
Lázaro Cárdenas, 23450 Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico

Most activities are water-centric, but I found these the most interesting.

I am always amazed by the talents of people with this skill.

Great post! I also found Cabo to unexpectedly have more things to do outside of the party scene during the last spring break I was there.

Ahh, that sky, that beach, the buildings perched on the rocks – soooo pretty!

I *almost* got to go to Cabo San Lucas around 10 years ago, it was on a cruise ship though as we diverted due to a hurricane, bah. One day though, one day…

So close, I hope you make it out there one day! It’s definitely worth a visit.

Hi Jessica! My husband and I went to Cabo for the first time last summer, and we loved it. While we did stay at an all-inclusive (adults only too!) We did do an excursion to take in the local scene. I can’t wait to go back to Cabo one day!

I’m glad you loved it! I was actually a little surprised how much I enjoyed our stay there too.

What a fun trip! I could really use a beach vacation these days…

I know right? Me too! I think this was our last official beach vacation.
