Don’t Leave El Arco Off the Itinerary

Thanksgiving in Cabo is the perfect time of year to check off some of the most iconic stops around, including El Arco de Cabo San Lucas. Perhaps one of the most photographed landmarks in the area, El Arco is as stunning up close as it is on a postcard! Rising out of the sea, this rock arch is truly an emblem of the destination. You’ll have to plan on getting out on the water to get the best look. Water taxis, kayaks, or private boat tours are the most popular routes to relishing this scene and enjoying time surrounded by natural beauty during your Cabo Thanksgiving adventure.

Stroll Through Cabo San Lucas Marina

Even if you don’t have plans to rent a boat and get out on the waves, taking time to stroll through the Cabo San Lucas Marina is always a wonderful addition to any Thanksgiving itinerary. This marina can host 380 vessels at a time which means there’s a good chance you can admire a variety of models during your walk. The marina hosts everything from fishing boats to yachts, giving sea faring enthusiasts plenty to take in. While a walk through the marina can be fun when you’re strolling off those Thanksgiving dinner calories, it’s also packed with its own collection of restaurants and bars to check out if you find you still have room for something savory.

Book a Sunset Cruise in Cabo

Booking a private or group cruise in Cabo is a fun activity to enjoy year-round. However, Thanksgiving time travelers will find the sunsets this time of year to be particularly appealing. This makes booking a sunset cruise during your stay that much more exciting! These picturesque tours typically last anywhere from an hour to two hours at a time and can be customized to be romantic or family friendly. Some sunset cruises come with music on board while others might even offer a delicious drink selection to pair with the view.
