Tim and Anna’s guide to Los Cabos

Tim and Anna share their tips for the best things to do in Cabo.

LOS Cabos, situated just two hours from Los Angeles and boasting 300 plus days of sunshine is the ultimate Mexican holiday destination.

Home to Lover’s Beach — c’mon, you can’t get much more romantic than that — lovebirds Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich recently spent a week enjoying the sunny destination on the tip of Mexico’s Baja peninsula.

Here are Tim and Anna’s top ten things to do in Cabo:

1. Sunset drinks at Sunset da Mona Lisa

For a meal with a view, you can’t go past Sunset da Mona Lisa, with breathtaking view of the sun setting next to the Arch, and an Oyster and Champagne bar on the Taittinger Terrace. Arrive early to nab a prime position with uninterrupted views of the sunset.

2. Visit Lover’s Beach

The spectacular Lover’s Beach is reached only by boat — you can kayak, paddle board, or take a ride on a glass bottomed boat to reach this secluded and spectacular beach. Swim and snorkel in the warm waters or laze in the Baja sun, or take a picnic for the ultimate romantic day out. If you’re superstitious, just steer clear of nearby ‘Divorce Beach’ — so called for the rough and wild waters.

3. Snorkel in the World’s Aquarium

Oceanographer Jacque Costeau dubbed Cabo’s Sea of Cortez the ‘Acqurium of the world’ and it’s not hard to see why. Take a trip to access some hidden bays away and discover the abundance of marine life ranges from an abundance of colourful fish, colonies of friendly sea lions and colourful coral. From October to March, several species of whales can be seen from a boat or often from the balcony of your hotel.

4. Massages in a Cabana by the sea

Nothing says romance like a massage for two with the sound of the waves crashing beside your cabana. At Land’s End Spa at Grand Solmar Resort they offer treatments for two using traditional Mexican techniques and ingredients.

5. Get spicy in the kitchen

Love Mexican cuisine? Learn to make your favourite dishes at Organic farm and restaurant, Tamarindos. Wander the fields with the chef, picking your ingredients for the day and then prepare a four course Mexican feast inspired by seasonal ingredients. All washed down with a Tamarindo Magarita of course ...

6. Try some local cuisine

Los Cabos is home to delicious cuisine ranging from street stalls selling tacos, specialty seafood restaurants with ‘Chocolate Clams’ and fine dining restaurants — such as internationally renowned Mexican chef Enrique Olvera’s Manta at The Cape. Anna and Tim tried the traditional fare and handmade salsas at Los Tres Gallos, in downtown Cabo San Lucas — and even dared to try some of Mexico’s spiciest chillies.

7. Sunset horse ride on the beach

If you crave a bit of adventure alongside relaxation, head to Rancho Carusiva, where you can ride through the desert and along the Pacific coast, and perhaps spot a whale breeching as you canter along.

8. Cocktails by the pool

Los Cabos is home to dozens of spectacular infinity pools — most of these with swim up bars. You can find classics, such as margaritas and mojitos everywhere, but many bars will make modern spins on the classics using local ingredients — Basil and Blueberry Mojito anyone?

9. Explore San Jose del Cabo

Visit the charming town of San Jose del Cabo on a Thursday night, when the galleries and shops are open late for the Art and Wine walk. Be sure to check out the amazing collections of Mexican handicrafts — you can even buy beautiful hand blown glass hearts.

10. Try something new

Anna and Tim are always up for an adventure on holiday — in Los Cabos they tried flyboarding (it’s harder than it appears!) and zip lined over the desert at top speed! The adventurous options on offer are endless — you can take ATV to ride through the desert, swim with whale sharks in La Paz, or try your hand at surfing.
