Beaches great for snorkeling
Chileno Beach is another calm beach that is great for swimming, and also ideal for snorkeling. If you want to discover even more about the underwater world, we also recommend Santa Maria Beach for snorkeling.
Less crowded beach
Lastly, if you are looking for a hidden gem, you need to visit Cannery Beach, commonly known as Local’s Beach. Avoid tourists and enjoy the sun in this paradisiac location.
Los Cabos is also known for its incredible and varied marine life. The Sea of Cortez has earned the nickname of the Aquarium of the World, and it is because you can find many species in this area.
Some sea creatures you can spot in Los Cabos are sea lions, sea turtles, dolphins, humpback whales, gray whales, blue whales, stingrays, shark whales, hammered sharks, and of course, many tropical fish.
The best way to enjoy the rich marine life is by taking a snorkeling excursion or a whale-watching tour, like the ones we provide at La Isla Tour. If you are visiting between mid-December and April, this is whale-watching season, so don’t miss this opportunity to meet them up close!
The Beautiful District of San Jose Del Cabo
Los Cabos is composed of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, both in Baja California Sur. The latter is a less visited city and where most locals live. Fun fact: If Cabo San Lucas is known for its night parties, its sister city is known for its slow and calm pace.
The Corridor, a 20-mile coast where you can find most hotels and restaurants, is what united both, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. You can easily visit San José del Cabo and explore downtown Cabo, its architecture, and its slow-living style while enjoying a less crowded tour.
