Here’s How to Spend 24 Hours on the Baja Peninsula

Where to Stay, Eat and Play in Cabo San Lucas 

Whether you’re a frequent traveler to Cabo San Lucas or this is your first adventure, this itinerary will surely offer you a little inspiration, perspiration and edification. In Cabo, it is very easy to spend the day poolside drinking cocktails. This 24-hour itinerary will inspire you to ride bikes on the beach, learn to make salsa or spend a day eating sushi. While it might be impossible to do all of this in one day, or consume this many daily calories (even on vacation), this list is a keeper for unique ways to spend the perfect day (and night) in Cabo San Lucas.  Baja Peninsula Itinerary

 

9 a.m.

Pedal Power 

There aren’t many reasons to wake up before 9 a.m. on vacation, but the unique experience of gliding through the sand on an electric-powered “fat” bike is one of those reasons. Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos offers bike rentals and a guided ride with reservation.

Farm-Fresh Salsa Making

Take a short drive down a dirt road outside of San José del Cabo and you will arrive at Flora Farms. Once a hidden gem and now a popular destination for most Cabo travelers, this working farm and restaurant offers a beautiful outdoor restaurant, shopping, a spa, a bee rescue and regional cooking classes.

Sushi + Beach Club

SUR Beach House is by far the best place to enjoy a day at the beach. The restaurant boasts amazing views of The Arch of Cabo San Lucas, serves fresh and inventive sushi rolls and features a private, swimmable beach. Book chairs or a chaise lounge in their beach club where you can alternate among sipping on cold rosé, floating in the sea and munching on their famous Lidia Roll.

Me Time

Yes, there are people who work out on vacation. No, we aren’t recommending a CrossFit class; the Hydrotherapy Circuit offered by Spa Imagine at​ Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos is a healing hydrotherapy ritual that takes you through six stages of water treatments. You begin with a steam in a marble steam room, move to a cedar sauna, take a high pressure shower to soothe your neck and back, massage your entire body in the Vitality Pool, warm up in the Grand Jacuzzi and then take a cold plunge.

Fish Tacos at a Sand-Side Food Truck

If you’re in the mood for fresh seafood, the food truck at Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos offers tacos and seafood just steps from the sand. Indulge in raw fish and shrimp marinated in citrus, along with a great selection of cocktails. Enjoy upbeat, chill music and refreshing ocean breezes as you savor exquisite flavors.

Be Pacific

Take a one-hour drive along the coast to the opposite side of the Baja Peninsula and the magical small town of Todos Santos. We recommend The Green Room—which is about 10 minutes outside of town––for a sunset dinner.

You Need to Rest Now

After a hectic day enjoying all that this utopia has to offer, relax in a two-person hammock on your giant terrace, soak in your freestanding bathtub and snuggle into your massive bed with luxury linens. The 1313 square foot one bedroom suite at The Garza Blanca Resort & Spa Los Cabos was the perfect way to end our day.
