10 Best Things to Do in Downtown Cabo San Lucas

Are you looking for a beautiful home located just minutes away from the beach? Does the idea of a luxurious, yet laidback lifestyle appeal to you?

If so, then downtown Cabo San Lucas is the place to shop for your new home.

In addition to offering attractive homes and a comfortable cost of living, downtown Cabo San Lucas also offers a variety of fun activities.

If you’re looking for fun things to do once you move, you’ve come to the right place. Listed below are some great activities that will make you look forward to your move even more exciting.

Swim in Lover’s Beach

There are two unique beaches in Cabo San Lucas connected on their own island. On one side of the island is Lover’s Beach while Divorce Beach is located on the opposite side.

Lover’s Beach features calm water and looks into the bay. It’s the perfect place to take a swim and enjoy the warm waters of the Sea of Cortez.

Divorce Beach, on the other hand, features turbulent waves and is generally considered to be unsafe for swimming.

If you plan to go swimming at Lover’s Beach, be sure to arrive early. It tends to get quite crowded during the middle of the day.

You can also catch a boat ride to the beach for a small fee – just make sure you make a pick up arrangement too!

There are lots of restaurants and bars along the beach that feature delicious drinks into a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

Some places will even offer you blankets to keep warm when the sun goes down and the air gets cooler.
