Day 1 - Cabo San Lucas


Go out for an afternoon trip with Cabo Expeditions, Los Cabo's most friendly and ecologically responsible snorkeling and diving outfit, after you get settled in. They're also incredibly knowledgeable about the local landscape and wildlife, so you'll get all sorts of fascinating tidbits from the crew while you're enjoying a whale-watching and snorkeling trip around Cabo's oceanside landmarks, including Lover's Beach and Land's End, where the Pacific meets the Sea of Cortez. When you get back on land, head to Felix's, one of the best traditional Mexican restaurants in town, which combines a friendly and homey atmosphere with fresh seafood, dozens of salsas, and fabulous margaritas. The Marquis Los Cabos resort is known for its exceptional service and serenity. Located just south of San Jose del Cabo, it is quieter and more relaxing than many of the area's resorts, and transportation into the Cabo cities is a breeze. With three restaurants, two infinity pools, a spa and six whirlpools, though, you may never want to leave.
