Cabo San Lucas Honeymoon Travel Guide
Cabo San Lucas offers newlyweds a choice of luxury hotel accommodation and gorgeous beaches as well as a variety of activities for adventurous honeymoon couples.
Consider the small resort town of Cabo San Lucas for a honeymoon.
Cabo’s golden beaches were featured in the Brad Pitt movie Troy, and the town, once legendary for big-game fishing, is now equally renowned for its world-class golfing fairways and for hosting some of Mexico's most elite resorts.
Choose from an array of adventure activities easily available from the city’s beaches, including jet skiing, parasailing, snorkelling, kite sailing, kayaking, diving and horseback riding – perfect for adventurous honeymoon couples.
Later, the boisterous nightlife scene will keep you happily entertained until the early hours of the morning.
Or try San José del Cabo. Located just 34km east of Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo offers a quiet, old world Mexican town with narrow, tree-lined streets crowded with pastel-coloured houses, art galleries, charming cafés, restaurants and shops selling traditional Mexican handicrafts.
Stroll around the pretty main square, Plaza Mijares, relax on a tree-shaded bench to watch colourful Mexican life pass by or examine colourful mosaics inside the imposing Iglesia San José, a replica of the original mission church built in 1730.
From the famed Lover’s Beach at Land's End on the eastern tip of the peninsula at Cabo San Lucas to Playa Palmilla at San José del Cabo on the eastern side of the Corridor lie several stunning beaches of soft white-sand set between dramatic rocky headlands and edged by the clear turquoise waters of the Sea of Cortes.
Linking the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo is a 29km-long corridor that boasts some of Mexico's most exclusive resorts.
Here, you can find an excellent choice of accommodation to suit all budgets, including the luxurious and internationally acclaimed One & Only Palmilla at San Jose Del Cabo.
