There’s no question about it — Cabo San Lucas is one of the world’s most romantic destinations, with luxury resorts, beautiful beaches, scenic coastline, year-round sunshine, romantic restaurants, and fun excursions like snorkeling, parasailing, and horseback riding.
It’s no wonder couples flock to this popular destination for a few days (or more!) of rest and relaxation. Whether you’re planning the perfect getaway to Cabo San Lucas for a honeymoon, babymoon, anniversary trip, Valentine’s Day, or destination wedding, you’re sure to feel the love in the air when enjoying these fantastic things to do in Cabo San Lucas for couples.
1. Lover’s Beach
As you can imagine, Lover’s Beach (Playa del Amor) is one of the top romantic destinations in Cabo San Lucas. This picturesque beach can only be reached by water taxi, but when you arrive, it offers calm waters for swimming and snorkeling. Additionally, the soft, golden sand is perfect for sunbathing, and the gorgeous views of the bay provide the perfect backdrop for romantic picnics.
Ironically, Lovers Beach is just across from Divorce Beach (Playa del Divocio), which is just as beautiful. If you aren’t superstitious, you should visit both beaches — they’re arguably the most gorgeous beaches on the Baja California Peninsula.
2. Sunset Boat Ride
Would you love to embark on a sunset dinner cruise in the Pacific Ocean during your romantic trip to Cabo San Lucas? If so, consider booking one of the sunset tours with Cabo Adventures on their fleet of luxury yachts. On your relaxing journey, you can enjoy gourmet appetizers, unlimited drinks, and spectacular sunset views during the 2.5-hour trip.
If you’d rather embark on a sailing adventure during the daytime, consider booking a tour with Cabo Sails. On the sailing trip, you will see beautiful rock formations, like El Arco and Land’s End, and you can go snorkeling near Lovers Beach.
3. Romantic Dinner
If a romantic picnic on the beach isn’t charming enough, Cabo San Lucas is filled with fabulous restaurants — perfect for enjoying a date night out with your significant other.
Sunset da Mona Lisa is one of the most romantic restaurants you’ll find in the world — you can savor fresh seafood and pasta while enjoying gorgeous views of the Sea of Cortéz and the unique rock formations on Land’s End. If you’re searching for other high-end restaurants to dine at during your romantic vacation, make reservations at El Farallon or Manta.
4. Whale Watching
Los Cabos is a fabulous destination to visit if you’d like to see whales during the winter or spring break months —the season lasts from December 15th to April 15th. During this timeframe, you can see humpback whales, gray whales, and sea lions off the Pacific Coast in the Sea of Cortez.
If you’re in Cabo San Lucas during the whale watching months, book a tour that will take you up the coast toward La Paz to see these magical creatures. It will surely be one of the most memorable experiences you and your partner have during your romantic trip to Los Cabos!
5. Snorkeling Adventure
Los Cabos is a fabulous destination for snorkeling. You can find several fantastic beaches for snorkeling on the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula, including Chileno Beach, Land’s End, and Lover’s Beach. If you’re visiting in the winter, you and your partner can even go snorkeling with whale sharks together — a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Tip: If swimming isn’t your thing, consider booking a glass-bottom boat tour for a similar experience to snorkeling. You’ll still see tropical fish in the shallow water, but you won’t have to worry about getting wet.
6. Couples Massage
If you and your partner want to do something more relaxed and intimate, consider booking a couples massage — one of the most romantic things to do in Cabo San Lucas!
The Spa at Esperanza is considered one of Latin America’s top spas. They offer unique packages, like the Pasaje de Agua, including a warm-spring soaking pool, steam caves, and a cool waterfall rinse. Saltwater Spa at Casa Dorada is another favorite in Los Cabos that offers mineral-rich saltwater treatments and over a dozen types of massages, from aromatherapy to hot stone massages.
7. Tequila Tasting
Do you and your partner like tequila, or want to learn more about how this popular liquor is made? If so, consider booking a guided tasting to try different types of tequila — you’re sure to have so much fun!
If you enjoy tasting tequila, keep the good times rolling and book a margarita-making class. Not only will you be able to enjoy the margaritas you make in Los Cabos, but you’ll be able to bring your bartender skills back home with you to share with your family and friends.
8. Parasailing Adventure or Helicopter Tour
Do you want to see the stunning ocean, golden beaches, and breathtaking rock formations in Cabo San Lucas from the best vantage point? If so, book a parasailing or helicopter adventure you can enjoy with your special someone. This is perfect for adrenaline-seeking couples who want to do something daring and epic on their romantic vacation.
9. Dolphin Swims
Swimming with dolphins is one of the most memorable experiences you can share with your spouse or significant other — these gentle, playful creatures are a welcome third wheel on any romantic vacation!
Cabo Adventures maintains dolphin centers in both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, so it’s easy to swim with dolphins — no matter where you’re staying in Los Cabos. The swims are done in small groups, and each group is paired with a photographer, so you’ll have the chance to purchase photos of this special moment after your swim.
