One of the most attractive things about Cabo San Lucas is that it offers memorable activities at every price point. Yes, you can drop quite a lot of money chasing blue marlin or pars at one of the area's many championship-level golf courses, enjoying your personal butler at One&Only Palmilla, or dropping the price of an economy car on magnums of Champagne at one of the high-end downtown nightclubs. Then again, there are plenty of activities that don't cost a thing. With that in mind, here are a few ways to spend a budget-free day in Los Cabos.
The Natural History Museum in Cabo San Lucas offers an excellent introduction to regional history – the wraparound murals in the lobby are, in fact, a visual representation of that history – as well as its traditional culture and incredible natural biodiversity. The museum is also conveniently located near the Land’s End city’s oldest house of worship, the 1950s era Parroquia San Lucas Evangelista. The most popular gathering places for cost-conscious travelers, however, are beautiful area beaches like Playas El Médano, Chileno and Santa María.
Sister city San José del Cabo is home to an even greater number of notable (and admission free) sites, including a beautiful old church that's located near the main square, Plaza Mijares. While you're in the neighborhood, explore the many galleries in the historic Distrito del Arte (Art District), visit City Hall and the Casa de Cultura, learn about local heroes at the Jardin de Cabeños Ilustres, or see how many avian species you can identify at the estuary and bird sanctuary.
