Things to do in Cabo.

This is from my friend, Tiffany, who goes there all the time!
I'll be posting some other ideas later on...

Things to do in Cabo:

The Glass Factory
If this is a cruise stop, I wouldn't pay for an "official" tour, but just take a taxi ride to it on your own. (It's down a back alleyway and I got nervous when the taxi turned down that street, but don't worry, they are not taking you back there to kill you.)

The tour is free and self-guided. You get to walk in the back and watch them make something and one lucky person will get to blow some glass. The only cost is leaving a tip if you want. They have racks and racks of really cool blown glass items. We came back with some pretty shot glasses.

The Giggling Marlin
A fun restaurant/bar where if you are brave (like my husband), you can pay for them to hang you upside down like a fish and feed you a shot. Fun to watch if you don't want to participate and great photo opportunity.

Cabo Wabo
Good food, fun to see, but definitely pricey. Worth the visit to say you've been there and you can walk around and not buy anything. (Note from Kathy: Get the nachos!!)

Playa del Amor (Lover's Beach)
You can take a water taxi (some are glass bottomed) out to Lover's Beach, which is where the famous arch is located. The experience includes the trip there and back in addition to your time on the beach. The water taxi driver goes around the arch for some great photo ops. (Ironically, on the other side of Lover's Beach is Divorce Beach.) We witnessed a proposal on Lover's Beach when we were there. There's nothing to do there but enjoy the view. We got lucky and during our visit the Arch was accessible and we were able to stand under the archway and get a picture. Though it was a little scary reaching it…we had to time it to avoid large crashing waves into the rocks. But we lived to tell about it. There are some vendors there selling cold drinks, which was definitely appreciated!
