We are sailing on Princess with our 3 and 5 year old daughters in December. What would you recommend doing in Cabo San Lucas?

(FYI: My husband is a little concerned about safety in Mexico so excursions through the ship or safe areas/beaches/pools nearby would be best.)

Thank you in advance!

In Cabo, I would recommend contacting Eduardo Martinez at Blue Baja Los Cabos for excursions. My family has used him several times when we were in Cabo. He provides great service and will set your family at ease. You can contact him at [email protected]

They might enjoy the glass bottom boats that take you out to the arches. You don't have to book through the cruise line. There are plenty of vendors along the boardwalk offering this. Don't pay more than 10.00 a piece. Walk away from anyone who states a higher price. The further along the boardwalk you go the better pricing you might get.

If you are looking for a nice resort with beach and pools, we loved our day at this resort https://cabosanlucascruiseexcursions...reak-day-pass/ . There are two pools , one had a pool bar and was a little more on the adult side, but the other was quiet and the beach is lovely there too. Kids are free 5 and under as well.

We have been to Cabo twice so far and will be there a third this coming January. We felt safe there. The only thing I would say to watch out for is that if you are walking, watch for holes in the sidewalk. There were some very deep holes that could have swallowed a person or at least hurt some ankles. Luckily, we were never there in the dark. Also, don't waste your time or money eating at Subway. Way overpriced, and heck, you are in Mexico, eat local.

Personally I found Cabo safe. Im sure you and the kids will love it. The beach is beautiful and people are friendly. Just get out of the port area as they can be a little annoying trying to sell you tours and stuff so it can be a little overwhelming
