Cabo Pulmo Snorkeling Expedition with Cabo Adventures
The activity level required for Cabo Adventures’ Cabo Pulmo Snorkelling Expedition is moderate and the minimum age is 10 years old, so it’s best if your family enjoys being active and knows how to swim.

InCabo’s Todos Santos Magic Town: Baja Culinary Revolution
If your family wants to do some city exploring and the kids are all grown up, this luxury tour with InCabo Travel is a great option. This is one of the few tour operators that offers this unique experience through Todos Santos, a local town one hour outside of Cabo San Lucas. It is a six-hour event and includes private transportation, a bilingual guide, five course lunch at a renowned authentic Mexican restaurant, coffee and tequila tastings and extra snacks and beverages.
Todos Santos is entirely different to what you’ll see in Cabo San Lucas where your other tours will depart from. This activity is an opportunity to change up your typical day by the beach and show your family a town that is more authentically Mexican from the colonial architecture to the cobblestone streets. Make sure to bring comfortable clothing, walking shoes, sunscreen and extra shopping money. Contact InCabo Travel on their website to get a price estimate.Credit: @yosoyfranck_ on Instagram
