These are the Kid-Friendly Excursions you Have Been Looking For
When you think of Mexico what do you picture? Is it sitting on the beach drinking fresh-squeezed margaritas? Maybe with friends, maybe with your significant other. My question to you is: do you think of Mexico as a family-friendly vacation? I certainly didn’t until we had our little guy. For me, it was always a romantic tropical oasis. The hubby and I could get away from our mundane activities for a relatively low price. Recently, though I have been in search of the best places to travel with the little, and Mexico is definitely at the top of the list. Not only is it a great cultural learning experience, but it has some of the best kid-friendly tours and excursions.
When you look for tours in Cabo San Lucas, MX you will likely come across Cabo Adventures. They are the largest excursion booking company in Cabo and have every excursion you could want. Cabo Adventures is a great company to work with, and extremely organized. They will provide transportation to and from your excursion whether you are staying on a resort or in a house. Be sure to check out all the excursions they have to offer.
For the adventurous Family
- Our favorite adventure excursion would definitely be the zip-lining and ATV tour. You start the day off repelling down some of the coolest zip lines overlooking the Boca de Sierra National park. Next, you enjoy a light lunch and hop into an ATV to ride through the desert.
- Another one of our favorite adventures was the sailing and snorkeling tour. We jumped aboard a catamaran and set out to go paddleboarding, snorkeling, and sailing along lands end and the ever famous arch. We were also served lunch and got to sip on unlimited drinks. The best part was the underwater scooters you could zoom through the water with.
- Jet skiing. If you have kids that are a little older, this is one of my favorite things to do. I know I say that about everything, but honestly, any of these excursions will not disappoint. If you look to go jet skiing I would recommend doing the rentals on the beach. They give you much more freedom than what the tours do to play around. If you are new to jet skiing or have never done it before, I would stick to the tour as they will teach you and provide advice on how to ride.
- There are several ATV tours you and your family can participate in. Ride a speedy cart through the desert, eat delicious food, and learn all about the culture on the Baha Sur.
- Swimming with the dolphins will always be one of the most memorable things I did as a kid. The dolphins are all well trained and some of the sweetest animals around. It was truly an amazing experience.
For the more laid back family
- Camel Tour. Enjoy the views from atop a camel’s hump. Tromp through the desert, and then enjoy some local cuisine. You will also get to learn a little about Cabo’s history while you taste different local snacks and tequila.
- Whale watching, Catamaran, and Glass Bottom boat tours. These are some of my favorite relaxation tours. On our last trip to Cabo, we did a sunset dinner cruise where we were eating a light dinner and then sailed across the ocean. The whale watching trips are always fun too, I mean who doesn’t love a good whale chase.
When it comes to pricing, expect to pay about $129 U.S. dollars, per person, for the larger interactive tours. We also typically expect to take a small amount of cash to pay for souvenirs or snacks. One thing to note is on the adventure tours it gets tricky to take photos. The excursions typically have a photographer for that reason. You can buy the pictures for around 70 U.S. dollars. This was one unexpected expense we had when we first started traveling. For the less adventurous tours, we usually just pack our phones along and take our own pictures.
Excursions are some of the best ways to get out and experience everything other countries have to offer. Whether you are looking to explore national parks, swim with all the ocean animals, or learn a bit about the culture this is the way to go. You won’t be disappointed, no matter which excursion you choose. If you are looking for a place to stay, be sure to check out my review of Punta Balena.
