Sailing Trip in Mexico, Cabo San Lucas on a Yacht Rental from Sailo

Spectacular white beaches, marine life teeming waters and dramatic arching stone cliffs

If you're interested in planning a sailing trip in Mexico, the west coast is a good place to start. Located at the southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, you will find plenty of things to do on your Sailo motor yacht or sailing boat rental from Cabo San Lucas. This area of Mexico is particularly well-known for its beaches, water activities, and nightlife, so it's not surprising that boating enthusiasts flock to this party paradise all year round.

Thanks to Cabo's geographic location, the city boasts consistently sunny days and warm winters, though the best time to plan a vacation is from June to July, and October to December. However, even outside the high season you will be blessed with comfortable temperatures, which will allow you to take advantage of all the wonderful and exciting things to do by sailing boat or motor yacht rental in Cabo San Lucas.

This beautiful resort city is located right beside San Jose del Cabo, another popular tourist destination which is well serviced by local airports. The heat and dry conditions are enough to attract the crowds in themselves, but there are plenty of other things to do by boat rental from Cabo San Lucas other than catch the sun rays. At Sailo we're excited to share our top ocean-based experiences, whether you're planning a whole day of sailing on a Cabo yacht rental or are just interested in a short trip around the harbor, ideally at sunset. 

Sunset and Whale Watching - Playa Solmar


Located near Pedrigal Hills, Solmar is particularly popular for its stunning sunset views, and during the winter months you can enjoy whale watching from your Cabo boat or yacht rental. However, this isn’t the best beach for swimming, as the currents can be very strong, but nonetheless the views definitely make it a worthy inclusion on your list of things to do next time you are on vacation in this part of the world. 

Cabo Yacht Rental to Playa Santa Maria


This beach is particularly popular and is one of the most well-known in the area. Shaped in the form of a horse shoe, it’s the perfect place to take your Cabo boat rental, and you won’t have to fight for achor space as there are in fact very few other charter companies operating from this harbor. Santa Maria is a Blue Flag beach, and surrounded by lively restaurants and facilities, including the 39 acre luxury beachfront resort of Montage Los Cabos. Santa Maria is one of the beaches located on the Tourist Corridor, a twenty-mile stretch of highway running between Cabo and San Jose.


Snorkeling at Playa Chileno


Chileno is another popular beach to be found on the Tourist Corridor. It is one of the most beautiful locations you can add your list of places to explore, especially if you are taken advantage of one of Sailo’s Cabo yacht rentals. It’s a great place to anchor your boat charter not only because of the amazing snorkeling, accessible with a simple jump into the ocean, but you can also rent umbrellas or enjoy a stroll offshore around the beach if you fancy getting on land for a few hours!

Swimming at Playa Medano


If beach swimming is a priority of your Mexico bucket list, then you must sail your Cabo yacht rental to Playa Medano. Medano is one of the best beaches for swimming, and it’s also very boat-friendly. The waters are among some of the most pristine in the whole of Mexico, and the surrounding views are stunning. Make sure to sail past the famous Arch of Cabo, where you can try some cliff diving.

Sail to San Jose del Cabo


San Jose - the resort city located directly beside Cabo - is very popular and many visitors include a trip to San Jose on their list of things to do when vacationing in Mexico. Why not make the most of your Sailo boat charter and venture from one city to the next by sea? Once you’ve sailed your Cabo yacht rental to San Jose, anchor at one of the harbors and take a wander around the city to explore the historical buildings to explore, numerous artist stands and colorful markets.
