Surfing The Pacific Coast
The Southern Baja is a surfer’s paradise, and this time of year, the best waves roll ashore on the Pacific coast. A great place for a day-trip, Los Cerritos Beach, just south of Todos Santos, boasts a right-hand point wave, sandy bottom, and a lively beach scene. Lessons and board rentals are available surfside. Go for the day and stay for the spectacular sunset over the Pacific.
Color and creativity flow every Thursday night in the traditionally quaint town of San Jose del Cabo during the Art Walk, a festive street party that runs weekly from November to May. Stroll through the flourishing gallery district taking in striking original works of art, sipping wine, and dining in any one of the fantastic courtyard restaurants.
Flora’s Field Kitchen at Flora Farm
Every visit to this destination restaurant situated on a 10-acre organic farm outside of San Jose is an event in and of itself. An unforgettable dining experience, Flora’s Field Kitchen features incredible farm-to-table cuisine, inventive signature cocktails (like the Farmarita and the Farm Julep), a breathtaking setting and a wonderful ambiance. Since it’s one of the most popular spots in Los Cabos, we suggest you make reservations well in advance. Head there early for a tasting at the new El Wine Bar and Café, featuring a 300-bottle collection, specialty coffee, mezcal, tequila and single malt.
Saturday Organic Market
Cabo’s organic foodie scene is on full display at this incredibly popular Saturday event featuring delicious cuisine, live entertainment, children’s activities, arts and crafts, jewelry, and more. The Organic Market runs from 9am-3pm every Saturday from November to May on the sprawling event lawn at La Huerta Maria, adjacent to the Jockey Club outside of San Jose.
Sabor a Cabo Culinary Festival
The international festival of food and wine celebrates its 10th year showcasing gourmet offerings of local and international star chefs from December 2-5 on the driving range at Club Campestre. At the main event on the 5th, “Evening Under the Starlight”, enjoy live music by Lila Downs, delicious cuisine and fine wine from some of Cabo’s top restaurants at the event benefiting the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation.

Sightings of the majestic creatures typically begin in December, but the official whale watching season runs from January to April. Gray and Humpback whales migrate annually to the Sea of Cortez where they put on a spectacular show breaching, head lunging, and tail slapping with their calves just off of Cabo’s shores. Make a day out of it with a private yacht charter for a truly luxurious experience.
