You packed your suntan lotion, your bathing suit, and got ready for endless days of sun during a holiday in Cabo San Lucas, and then the weather throws a bit of a curve ball and you end up with a rainy day on your hands. Fortunately, this is a rare and fleeting event in Cabo, and it is more likely to be just a few hours of rain and then the storm clouds go and the sun and warm weather returns.
What to do if you do hear of an impending shower or lengthy stretch of rain due in the next morning or afternoon? As someone in an Isle Blue villa, you could opt to spend the time in the comfort of your luxury accommodations. You will have all kinds of entertainment systems, a pool or spa, and that full kitchen to put to use experimenting with local ingredients.
However, you can also take advantage of some of the best rainy day options that allow you to sample the culture, learn about the history of the area, and even do some excellent shopping and dining.
Museums and Tours
Did you know that Cabo is home to a glass factory? You can even request a tour. In fact, there are a few factories, but those who opt for a visit to The Glass Factory will get a chance to try this amazing art for themselves, and perhaps make a souvenir to take home! Be sure to visit only if there are no cruise ships in the harbor as the glass factories fill up quickly with day visitors. There is also the Cabo Museum in Amelia Wilkes Park in the downtown area, and it is home to an impressive collection of artifacts and displays.
If you want to dedicate a rainy day to souvenir shopping, but prefer your purchased to be handmade and artisan goods, the Artesanos shop is a three-story building offering only Mexican made artisan pieces. It is a good idea to give yourself several hours to make your way from top to bottom.
Yes, it is a rainy day, but this is one time when you can enjoy riding along the ATV trails without also swallowing a lot of dust and debris. While you are likely to be very muddy when done, it will prove one of the most enjoyable and uncrowded times to take in this experience.
Hit the beaches
Not so much the beaches, but the beach bars. When rain drives away the crowds, it is the perfect opportunity to sample the local rums, rum punches, or learn about all of those tasty cocktails so difficult to get when the sun is out and the beaches are packed.
Book a spa experience
Whether you head to a resort or spa to get a massage and other relaxing treatments, or you contact your Isle Blue concierge to find out if this option is available in your villa, it could be the perfect backup plan in the event that some rainy weather rolls in.
Don’t forget that most diving tours can keep you booked and still conduct your tour or lesson during a rainy day. As long as the winds are low, most sites have good clarity up to sixty feet, and you can still experience the majesty of the world beneath the waves.
There is always something to see and do when visiting Cabo San Lucas, and whether it is a gloriously sunny day at the beach or a rainy day of shopping for artisan goods, it is sure to be an unforgettable adventure.
