What to do in Los Cabos with the kids?
In Los Cabos, there are so many wonders you will not be able to cope with. You need several days to discover them, and even then, you will still have things to see; you will want to return!
Go to its majestic beaches
The beaches of Los Cabos are spectacular and with transparent water. Some of the most famous are Las Viudas, Playa Chileno and Playa Costa Azul, perfect for surfing. Now, if what you want are quiet beaches to go with the children, you can visit:
A beautiful beach with light waves and fascinating sunsets with an arch in the background. The sand is white and soft; the sea has a spectacular turquoise color and is the starting point for many activities in the area.
Love Beach and The Arch are probably the most iconic places in Baja California Sur. It is the meeting point between the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. The tranquility of its currents will invite you to cool off and walk along the shore.
It is located between two granite rock formations. It is a small and isolated area near The Arch. To get to it, you must take a water taxi from Medano Beach to the other side of the bay.
Santa Maria Beach
It is one of the most beautiful beaches in Los Cabos due to its horseshoe shape and its fine, pink sand. It has a family and quiet atmosphere; the waves are very calm and crystal clear waters, perfect for children. On this beach, you can do water activities such as diving and snorkeling to see the variety of fish on the shores.
It is located at Kilometer 11 of the Cabo San Lucas – San José del Cabo tourist corridor. If you travel by car from Cabo San Lucas, it will take you about 15 minutes.
It´s a quiet beach surrounded by coves (smaller than a bay). It is located in a luxurious residential area where many celebrities choose to stay. A perfect place to spend the day with the family, see the fishing boats or have a picnic with your little ones.
In addition to these beautiful beaches with calm waves for your children, we recommend you allow yourself to visit Cabo Pulmo and Playa del Divorcio, the first is a wonder of nature, and the second is the complement to Playa del Amor.
Legend has it that a local woman rescued a Japanese sailor, and they fell in love on the beach of love; one day, the young woman’s father killed her boyfriend, and she took her own life on the beach of divorce.
