A vacation planned at the right time will allow you and your family to experience a thrill of a lifetime – whale watching at one of the top places in the world to enjoy it.

The waters outside of Los Cabos, Mexico are home to Humpback and Gray whales that migrate there for the winter, making December through April the ideal time to see them.

And the ideal place to stay on any visit to Los Cabos is Hacienda Encantada Resort & Residences.

Sitting on top of cliffs overlooking the Cabo San Lucas Bay, you may even see whales spouting right from the resort, or from the beautiful beach just steps away.

There’s plenty of marine life and other adventures if you plan your vacation in the months when whales aren’t in the waters of Los Cabos, where the Pacific Ocean meets the Sea of Cortes. Ocean adventurer Jacques Cousteau called this area the “world’s aquarium,” so a snorkeling excursion is another top activity. The concierge at the resort can help you with bookings for whale watching or snorkeling.

While at Hacienda Encantada, you get access to their sister resort on the Cabo San Lucas marina. From there, you can walk to Medano Beach, one of the top beaches in the area with swimming and snorkeling. You’ll also see fish from a water taxi, many of which have glass bottoms, and they can tour you around Land’s End and to see the Sea Lion colony.

Marine in Los Cabos

Back at the marina, you’ll have access to select restaurants on the Marina Golden Zone, where you can cap off your day with a great meal. Walk the marina and shop at nearby Puerto Paraiso Mall and Luxury Avenue.

When you head back to Hacienda Encantada, there’s no end to the activities if you’re in the mood. Relax poolside, in the hot tub, visit the spa, and dine in your choice of several restaurants. You can also simply sit back in your luxury room or suite and reflect on the exciting vacation that you’ve been waiting to enjoy.

Whether you visit during whale watching season or any other time of year, a vacation at Hacienda Encantada Resort & Residences will be one to remember.
