Solo travel is always special, whether it’s a personal journey of finding yourself à la Eat, Pray, Love or simply a relaxing retreat to clear your head from the clutter of everyday life. Where better to take some time to yourself than the paradise of Cabo? With beautiful golden sand beaches, the sparkling Sea of Cortez, and a fantastic local dining scene, you’ll never run out of things to experience in our vibrant city! And when night falls, you’ll find some of the liveliest nightlife north of the equator, from low-key beachside bars to high-end nightclubs. When you’re not laying out by the poolside sipping on a margarita, here’s a few ideas and things to do in Cabo that are perfect for a solo traveler!
Go Kayaking and Snorkeling in Famous Local Spots
One of Cabo’s defining characteristics is our stunning coastal waters, but there’s more exciting ways to discover them than with a beach day. Take a sea kayak tour with local companies like Cabo San Lucas Tours, gliding along picturesque coastlines and past the sea lion colony to the iconic Arch of Cabo. Or opt to take a snorkeling tour where you can explore the world beneath the waves and sight a variety of marine life. Some companies such as Cabo Outfitters have tours that combine the two experiences!
Embark on a Whale Watching or Glass Bottomed Boat Excursion
If you’re here during whale watching season (roughly December to mid-April), going on a tour to see these majestic creatures is a must! You’ll find a number of local companies, among them Whale Watch Cabo and Cabo Whale Trek that offer a number of excursions, including gorgeous sunset cruises. Cabo San Lucas Tours offers a whale-watching brunch cruise if you want to take the experience up a notch. If it’s out of whale watching season, a terrific backup plan is to go on a glass-bottomed boat tour—there’s several companies that run them, such as Baja Water Sports or Roger’s Glass Bottomed Boat Tours.
Take a Cooking Class or Food Tour
An exciting part of traveling is experiencing the local culture’s cuisine, and it can be a fantastic way to meet fellow travelers as well! Spend an afternoon having an authentic Mexican cooking class with companies like Viator, and you’ll also go on a guided market tour and get to personally select your own ingredients. For a taste of all of Cabo’s local hotspots, going on a culinary walking tour with Juan More Tacos is a great way to experience it all—inventive dishes as well as authentic Mexican fare. You’ll also be treated to tidbits of information on the local culture and history of the city. It’s a delicious way to discover more about Cabo!
