12 noon: Cabo San Lucas foreshore
It’s midday and Greer has arrived in Los Cabos ready for a warm, action-packed and delicious 48 hours! She meets up with fellow Australian travel consultant Emma Johnman, who is a Mexico expert, and here to show her around. After a stroll along the waterfront, they’re ready to dive into their first activity
1pm Wild Canyon
Greer and Emma drive inland to Wild Canyon, where they’re set off on an ATV ride through the desert. After a safety briefing, they explore some of the 100 hectares of park, before working up the courage to ride across the world’s longest wooden hanging bridge – Los Cabos Canyon Bridge. But that’s not the most adrenaline inducing experience they’ll have – next up is bungee jumping! Diving off a glass-bottomed platform into the canyon, this is one major endorphin hit!
4pm The mission trail to Sol Del Mayo
The girls drive along the Mission trail to their next stop, admiring the beautiful architecture amid the vast desert, before arriving at their next destination: Rancho Sol De Mayo. This is an oasis in the middle of the desert, but with the cacti and desert landscapes, Greer wonders how there can possibly be a waterfall out here in the middle of the desert. But there is! The girls do a short hike through cactus fields top arrive at the oasis, where they quickly jump in for a swim.
6:30pm Cabo San Lucas
Back in Cabo San Lucas, the girls are ready to take on the town. Exploring street art sculptures, views of the marina, the girls then stop to sample some delicious street food, ending the night with chocolate and churros!
6am Breakfast on the beach for sunrise
To start the day in style, Emma has organised a gorgeous spot for the girls to enjoy a quick brekky while watching the sunrise from the beach in front of their hotel, Dreams Los Cabos Suites Gof Resort & Spa.
7:30am El Arco sailing on a private yacht
Down in the marina, Greer and Emma are welcomed aboard a yacht for a tour to El Arco, a natural rock formation caused by erosion over many years. The southernmost tip of Cabo San Lucas, they sail from the Sea of Cortez side to the Pacific Ocean side, spotting humpback whales along the way!
1pm Flora Farms
Greer and Emma arrive at the lovely and quaint Flora Farms, a unique concept for this area. They meet with the charismatic head chef and take a tour of the farm to discuss the sustainable garden to plate ethos. Greer asks lots of questions and they try fresh produce straight off the vine. Delicious! The girls with baskets in hand, pick a variety of produce that the head chef then takes away to create their lunch!
4pm San Jose del Cabo
It’s time for a dose of art! Greer and Emma meet Gallery owner Patricia for an introduction to the local art scene. Patricia shows the girls through a few different galleries which showcase art from unique local artists.
6pm Sunset Monalisa
Greer and Emma have a sunset champagne at the cliff-edge restaurant Sunset Monalisa, before dinner on the roof overlooking the magnificent Sea of Cortez. Looking out over the sea towards El Arco, they can see where they had been snorkelling during the day. Mona Lisa focuses on Mediterranean fare and the freshest seafood ingredients from the local area.
7am – La Paz – Sea Lion Island – Isla Espirito Santu
This morning Emma has organised a boat trip to see more of the beautiful coastline. In an area that’s home to over 900 different fish species, and a colony of around 500 sea lions, the girls learn a little about the protected natural area before jumping in for a swim with the playful locals!
12noon – Los Cabos beachfront
Walking along the water’s edge, the girls have a moment to reflect on their awesome time in Los Cabos, how quick it flew by and what they loved most about the trip. For Greer, the art walk in San Jose, and for Emma, the bungee jump!
