Celebrate Sea Turtle Season

Wildlife enthusiasts heading to Cabo over the summer will be just in time to begin celebrating the start of the sea turtle season. Summer marks the arrival of thousands of sea turtles on the sands around Los Cabos with the vast majority making their way onto land around late August. Species that head this direction include green turtles, leatherback, hawksbill, olive ridley, and loggerhead, just to name a few. August sees nests being dug in the sand as females lay eggs before returning to the water. It takes about 45 days for eggs to hatch before the shorelines are welcome little ones! This time of year, there are plenty of guided tours available focused specifically on helping to release baby turtles into the sea. It’s an activity that’s equal parts inspiring and educational no matter when you sign up.

Take Time to Surf Your Way to Fun

Whether you’re an expert on a surfboard, or you’re new to the sport entirely, Cabo is a captivating place to surf your way to fun in the summer. The months of June, July, and August are typically considered the best times to hit the waves thanks to the Southern Hemisphere swells that roll in. Novice surf enthusiasts will find there are plenty of opportunities for booking lessons across Cabo with talented instructors. These are individuals who can provide clear teachings on water safety, how to maneuver on a board, as well as foster an appreciation for the waves. If you’re looking to put your skills to the test, or simply admire the skills of talented surfers, destinations like La Roca and Zippers host competitions for professionals throughout the summertime.

Make the Most of Epic Fishing While You’re Here

Those summer visitors to Cabo who are excited to lace up their boots, take a hike, and enjoy the view, will want to set their sights on a trek up Pedregal. This route runs up the rocky hill that rises behind Cabo San Lucas and the effort is definitely worth a hiker’s while once they reach the top. The route is filled with switchback roads, but the summit offers up a sweeping view of the Pacific Ocean, Sea of Cortez and Cabo sprinkled between it all.
