Stand-Up Paddleboard at Bahia de Los Suenos
Right outside of our Los Cabos vacation rentals at Gran Sueño Resort, our beach is the perfect place to go stand-up paddleboarding. In fact, we even have paddleboards for you to use! Thanks to the bay’s protection, the water stays nice and calm. So, if this is your first time stand-up paddleboarding, you’ll have the best conditions to learn and have fun. As you cruise along the shoreline, keep an eye out for marine life!
Go Whale Watching in La Paz
The Gulf of Mexico is teeming with whales from the end of fall to the beginning of spring; however, sightings are made year-round! There are several wonderful whale-watching tours to enjoy in La Ventana and La Paz. During the trip, your captain will take you to some of the area’s most stunning locations and track down blue, gray, and humpback whales. Prepare to be blown away as these impossibly large creatures glide through the ocean, make melodious sounds, and jump out of the water!
Visit the Whale Museum (Museo de la Ballena y Ciencias del Mar)
Visiting the whale museum in La Paz is something you won’t want to miss! Inside, you’ll have the chance to explore the largest marine megafauna skeleton collection in Latin America. When you sign up for a guided tour (self-guided tours are also an option), a guide will walk you through the different exhibits, break down the details of the evolution of whales, and talk about marine life in the Gulf of Mexico! If you’re a diver or simply fascinated by all things whales, then make sure to put this museum high on your list of things to do!
Spend the Morning Fly Fishing
Vacationing in Bahia de Los Suenos is all about enjoying the finer things in life. So, why not spend the morning doing a bit of fly fishing? Right along the main beach, you can link up with Juan Lucero Fly Fishing and schedule a few sessions. Catching fish here is as easy as one-two-three. Once you cast a line, you won’t have to wait long to reel in incredible fish, such as roosterfish, mahi mahi, and yellow tail. Your guides will take you to the best fishing spots in Los Cabos, so don’t be surprised if you catch more fish than you’ve ever caught in your life.
Kayak in the Sea of Cortez (Gulf of Mexico)
With calm waves, crystal clear water, and amazing marine life, our private beach checks all the boxes for a picture-perfect day of kayaking. If you’re not interested in stand-up paddleboarding, then grabbing one of our kayaks at Gran Sueño Resort is a great way to get out onto the water. Guided experiences are also available in the area so that you don’t miss out on seeing pristine beaches and epic landscapes!
Swim with Whale Sharks
While you’re staying at one of our Los Cabos beachfront villas, you’ll have the opportunity to swim with whale sharks. Yes, you read that correctly–swim with whale sharks! But fear not because these animals are gentle giants that pose no threats to humans. So, you can safely hop in the water and snorkel around as these incredible creatures pass by. There are several top-tier tour companies in La Paz that take visitors on a 30-minute boat ride to where these animals roam the water. As with any experience, feel free to ask us at Gran Sueño Resort to help book your tour!
Hop on a Boat to Espiritu Santo Island
Interested in visiting an uninhabited island that’s home to remarkable rock formations, endemic flora and fauna, and virgin beaches? Well, Espiritu Santo Island has all of that and so much more! The island, which is both a national park and UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located about an hour and a half off the coast of La Paz. Once you arrive, you can swim, kayak, fish, snorkel, and hike while taking in the unbelievable scenery. There are also ten excellent diving spots around vibrant reefs and sunken ships. Visiting Espiritu Santo Island is truly the ultimate experience, and at Gran Sueño Resort, you’ll be in the perfect spot to go.
Snorkel at Balandra Beach
One of the most popular beaches in the area is Balandra Beach. It’s just north of La Paz, so when you’re in the area, don’t pass up the chance to experience this magnificent coastline. The beach is under strict protection, so only 450 visitors can go each day. To ensure you can access Balanda Beach, booking a guided snorkeling trip is an excellent option. On the tour, you’ll be taken to the most beautiful spots that you wouldn’t have the chance to see otherwise. Gliding through the water, you’ll spot fascinating reef fish, sting rays, and so much more!
Hike or Mountain Bike at Rancho Cacachilas
The Sierra Cacachilas mountains are home to world-class hiking and mountain biking trails. Taking the paths leads you up and around the area’s gorgeous desert landscapes. Some of the best trails are within Rancho Cacachilas–a private, 60-km trail system. At Rancho Cacachilas, you can choose from a number of guided hiking and mountain biking adventures. Don’t let the idea of hiking or riding with a guide deter you from these epic experiences. You’ll be led to lovely streams, panoramic viewpoints, and so much more!
