Parks and Great Days Out in Cabo

September 16, 2015 at 8:36 am

Cabo San Lucas is not only a great place to visit if you like gourmet restaurants, beaches, and great bars. It’s also a good place to go if you want to visit nature reserves and parks. The whole Baja California area is filled with great parks and marine reserves. Some, like the Town Square, are very close to Cabo San Lucas, but even those that are further away are worth a visit.

The Park at Town Square

Those who want to stay closer to home, so to speak, will love the Town Square which can be found on the northern side of the downtown district. This tiny park is surrounded by large, mature trees and offers some welcome shade in the middle of sunny days. This park is popular with locals as well as tourists, and provides a perfect place to sit down before exploring the museums and restaurants of the area.

Birder’s Parks – San Jose’s Birds Sanctuary

If you are a lover of avian wildlife, then the San Jose Bird Sanctuary is really worth a visit on your vacation to Cabo San Lucas. Here you can observe pelicans, heron, and a huge number of exotic migratory birds. What’s more you can explore the park via kayak, or through a number of other activities which you can find out about in the visitor centre.

Wirikuta Botanical Park

The Wirikuta Botanical Park is a desert garden designed to showcase and honour the culture and traditions of the indigenous Mexican people, as well as the cactus in all its glory. This Botanical Park features over 1 million plants, seriously, and around 1 thousand bonsai bougainvilleas in a labyrinthine display that includes 3 granite pyramids. These constructions are built from huge boulders and constitute a really spectacular sight!

Cabo’s Desert Park Natural Reserve

The Desert Park Natural Reserve can be found in the Corridor area of Cabo San Lucas and is a particularly rugged spot. The mountains, large expanses of desert and gorgeous sea views are stunning enough to enjoy on your own, but a guided tour will really help you to get the most out of it. Tours cost around $50-75 and last 3 hours.

Cabo Pulmo National Park

If you’re a lover of marine wildlife and scenery, then the Cabo Pulmo National Park is something that should be at the top of your list. The crystal clear waters and colorful coral reefs in the area are the perfect place to go snorkelling or diving whether you’re an expert or an enthusiastic amateur.

If you are reading this, you are probably interested in vacationing in the Baja California area of Mexico. If so, then you may want to experience a real get-away by vacationing at the Islands of Loreto in Baja California, Mexico. Americans and Canadians frequent this spot for its diversity of activities, and you are sure to make it one of your premium vacation spots once you have visited. Just take a look at some of the awesome activities that await you!

Go Fish!

The Sea of Cortez is a hot spot for clear water beaches and abundant marine life. This makes the Sea of Cortez a top choice for fishing tours. The surrounding waters carry a diverse breed of fish (including tuna, dorado, and billfish). Many hours can be spent doing this adventure; so make fishing a top choice of events to do while having your best day out on the Islands of Loreto you won’t want to miss.

Jesuit Mission and Museum

The 400 year old Misión Nuestra Señora de Loreto is a colonial mission that represents Loreto’s finest architecture. The adjacent Mission Museum is opened to tourists 6 days a week (and closed on Mondays) and contains many religious artifacts worth exploring.

Parque Marino Nacional Bahía de Loreto

The Loreto Marine Park is a protected site that is a lovely bonus to your Loreto adventure. While touring the waters along the coast of the Islands of Loreto, you will observe a variety of marine creatures and flora.

Cave Paintings

Another protected site (UNESCO) is the Loreto cave that houses paintings created over 1500 years ago. These paintings with their primitive inscriptions are said to be more defined and more descriptive than the inscriptions found in the European caves of Altamira and Lascaux.

Non-Motorized Water Sports

All the non-motorized water sports are a good way to appreciate the natural surroundings of Loreto. Snorkeling, paddle-boarding, diving, and kayaking are just a few of the water activities that will help you explore the tropical nature of the Islands of Loreto. You also get a chance to see some nice caves and marine life while on your water journeys. If you travel during the winter season, you can even get a chance to do some whale watching for your best day out on the Islands of Loreto!

Beach Life

Escaping to various islands making up the Islands of Loreto is an added treat to your vacation. Travel north of Loreto to Bahia de Concepción (Conception Bay) and explore the many beaches there. Two of the more popular beaches are Playa La Perla and Playa Coyotes. You can also kayak or travel by small boat 2.5 miles away from Loreto and enjoy Isla Danzante.
