“Cabo as cruise ship port”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2013

Cabo is a tender port. It only takes a few minutes by boat to get right into center of the town with the marina, restaurants and shops. There are people offering boat and taxi tours at the pier. We took a glass bottom boat to the arch. The prices are negotiable and it cost us $ 36 for 4 for about 1 hour. To get to the boats you have to pay some kind of tax of $ 1 per person. That tour is interesting as you get a good picture of the beaches and the spectacular rock formations. We also enjoyed the sea lions, pelicans and fish. Don’t take the cruise ships excursion because it is really easy to get around on your own.

“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2012

We paid $10 dlls to go on a boat tour. They take you to the rock formations, to the sea lion sanctuary and they finally drop you off in "La playa del amor" (lovers beach). We had to decide if we wanted to stay 1 or 2 hrs in the beach; we decided to stay 1 hr and we felt it was enough. The beach is really pretty and clean. A great view of the Sea of Cortez and great for taking memorable pictures with the whole family.
Once you arrive there, if you want an umbrella for the sun, it's gonna cost around $10-$20 dlls, haggling is acceptable!

“Walking tour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2012

We didn't actually take a paid tour, we just walked the streets of Cabo San Lucas. It was a Sunday morning and not all of the shops were open, but the streets were so clean and attractive. I felt very safe walking through the town. There are exquite homes up on the hills over looking the beautiful sea.

“whale watching in Cabo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 March 2012

while on a cruise out of South America to Lax we ported in Cabo San Lucas. After doing research on tours in Cabo I came upon a whale watching tour as well as a "Drinking" tour!!we chose www.cabosanlucastours.net Went on the Jungle Cruise and had a ball!! Continually putting a drink in your hand as well as seeing dozens of whales. Everyone had a great time while in port with enough time to shop.. The price was 39.00 apiece and well worth the trip.. Plenty of time to get back on the ship as well..

“Sea of Cortez is beautiful but can be rough!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2011

We stayed at the Riu Santa Fe and we only went to the beach once. The sand is rather coarse - not like the soft powder of the Riveria Maya. I was playing with my little son on the beach and a wave caught us by surprise, tossing us around a bit. There are other parts of this area that are swimable, but not in this location. So double check where you are staying specifically because some beaches are fine while others are quite dangerous in this aera
