February is the perfect time of year to escape the winter doldrums and vacation on a sun-drenched beach in Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo
The neighboring cities of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, known collectively as Los Cabos, are perched along the southern edge of the Baja California peninsula in Mexico. Los Cabos offers a panoply of natural beauty that includes white sand beaches, crystal clear waters, and panoramic desert vistas.
Travelers looking for daytime fun in the sun and vibrant nightlife may choose to visit Cabo San Lucas, while those who prefer a quieter pace and a taste of traditional Mexico may opt for a visit to San José del Cabo.
Of course, you don’t have to choose between the two cities. Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo are mere minutes apart by car, and Global Air Charters can fly you directly to either destination. Whether you stay in one city or visit both, GAC will tailor your trip to make your flight a memorable part of your journey.

Soak Up the Sun on the Cabos San Lucas Beaches
The clear, calm waters of Cabo San Lucas beaches are perfect for swimming or snorkeling, while beachgoers in search of excitement may opt for jet skiing or parasailing. After the sun goes down, visitors can dine at one of many local restaurants or revel in the lively nightlife of the bars and nightclubs that line the shores of Cabo San Lucas.
See Los Cabos from a New Perspective
While visiting Los Cabos, take a boat tour of the El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, a natural archway carved out of stone cliffs by centuries of crashing waves. The outward-bound leg of your trip culminates with a visit to Land’s End, where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet. On your voyage to and from El Arco, you may spy colonies of sea lions resting on the beach or witness dolphins and whales frolicking in the azure waters.
Take a Charter Fishing Trip
For a more hands-on experience, schedule a charter fishing trip off the coast of Cabo San Lucas. A rich variety of sea life abounds in the region and depending on the time of year you visit, you may reel in marlin, tuna, sailfish, yellowtail, and wahoo. Your guides will bring all the gear you need, and they will even clean, fillet, and prepare your catch so you can enjoy the freshest fish you have ever tasted.
Take a Tour of the Desert
Los Cabos is home to the stunning Baja California desert, with its vast, sun-bleached vistas and towering rock formations. Set out for a hike, ride dune buggies or ATVs on guided tours, or enjoy leisurely horseback rides. You can even schedule a camel tour, and you may spot wildlife such as bighorn sheep, coyotes, and jackrabbits as you trek across the desert sands.
Explore the Art and Architecture of San José del Cabo
If you’re looking for the spirit of Old Mexico, take a guided tour of the Mission of San José del Cabo Añuití, which dates to 1730. Afterward, stroll the streets of San José del Cabo and explore the charming colonial architecture of the city’s shops, galleries, and restaurants.
Don’t forget to visit the twice-weekly Art Walk, held every Thursday and Sunday, where local artists and artisans exhibit paintings, jewelry, and traditional crafts as live music fills the air. San José del Cabo is a family-friendly destination, offering something for everyone on a trip to Los Cabos.
