Activities in Cabo: Whalewatching, birdwatching, surfing and artwalks
Each year in December, one of mother nature's most delightful signs of seasonal change occurs - the migration of hundreds of whales from the frigid waters of the arctic to the warm, calm waters surrounding the Baja Peninsula. And from now through March, there is no better place to view such a spectacular event than the beaches of Los Cabos. There are several ways to observe these magnificent cetaceans in their natural habitat. Many local tour companies offer whale-watching trips aboard all-weather inflatable speedboats, ensuring a comfortable and education ride while travelers learn about and experience these amazing creatures up close and personal, including Cabo Expeditions, Cabo Adventures and Sunrider. This month is also prime bird watching season in Los Cabos. Birders and leisure travelers alike will enjoy the tranquil setting and beautiful scenery of Estero San Jose (San Jose del Cabo Estuary) where over 250 species of birds and 5 different types of ducks can be found and are protected by Mexican law. For water lovers, December is a great time to travel to the tip of the Baja Peninsula. This month kicks off the surfing season along the Pacific Coast of Cabo. A popular spot for surfers is Cerritos Beach, located near Todos Santos, where surfers can enjoy world-class surfing conditions, great restaurants and on Sundays, live music. Also on the Pacific Coast, near Cerritos Beach is San Pedrito, known as a great surf and kiteboarding spot along with La Ventana and Los Barriles, on the other side of the Peninsula along Los Cabo's East Coast region. In January, Los Barriles becomes the home to the annual Lord of Wind competition, a 5-day kiteboarding and SUP (Stand Up Paddle Boarding) event.
