Ready for a spring break fit for the whole family? Whether you have kids, teens, or young adults that you are bringing along for a vacation, Los Cabos is a perfect getaway to warm beaches and accommodating resorts!
Cabo San Lucas is a city that resides on the tip of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico. Along the Sea of Cortez, you’ll find the magnificent Dreams Los Cabos Suites Golf Resort and Spa. For the waterbugs, there are two gorgeous pools and a beach. For the sports fans, not only is the resort surrounded by eight championship golf courses, but tennis, beach volleyball, bocce ball, and more are available for families to engage in. And for the little ones, the Kids Club is open from 9 a.m. to10 p.m. and offers a playground, climbing wall, and splash park to children aged 3-12. You can try their on-site restaurants like the Seaside Grill, Portofino, and Barefoot Grill, among others. Everything is all-inclusive; so food-wise, it’s perfect for growing teens or picky eaters. (Plus, you can go for dessert without a second thought!)
Head down the cost to the very tip of the peninsula, and you’ll find Cabo Adventures, which is a fun and active way to explore the beautiful environment. We especially recommend the Electric Bike Beach Adventure for an excursion with teens and young adults, as they are sure to get a thrill out of a ride through the rough desert and sandy beaches. They are easy to use, so bikers of all levels can join in.
For something a bit more slower-paced, Cabo Adventure’s Whale Watching Photo Safari is a great choice. Go out onto the waters and you’ll be surrounded by the natural breeding grounds of whales. Your young ones will have eyes peeled as they try to spot a humpback or an orca, and your teens might just get that perfect Instagram shot of a whale jumping out of the Pacific Ocean.
Another resort in the neighboring San José del Cabo that we recommend you check out is the grand JW Marriott Los Cabos Beach Resort & Spa, located at the crossroads of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean. The kids will be entertained for endless hours at the play zones, the video game zones, and movie area. There is even a dance floor and games like ping pong and air hockey for your teens. Health and safety is of utmost importance these days, and it’s comforting to know that you can get tests on site for only $22.
Nearby the JW Marriott are a few restaurants where you can treat the family to authentic, upscale cuisine and teach them about sustainable food practices!
- Mexican farm-to-table restaurant Huerta Los Tamarindos is located inside a 19th century farmhouse.
- La Revolución Comedor de Baja California highlights a transformational, modern take on old traditions.
- Agave Handcrafted Kitchen provides a view of the Gallery District in San José del Cabo.
With all this and more, families big and small, of all ages, can enjoy a fun-filled vacation in Los Cabos!
