Therefore, if you don’t have a clearly laid out itinerary, you may be overwhelmed by the numerous activities occurring simultaneously. 

Here are five recommended things you should do to ensure you have the most fun at Medano beach. 

1. Water Excursions

Even though fishing charters are mostly available at the Marina, you can engage in a wide range of water excursions at Medano Beach. You can rent a kayak, surfboard, or even our personal favorite, a parasailing tour. The latter is an opportunity to get a bird’s view of the popular landmarks in Cabo San Lucas, such as Land’s End. Medano Beach is a must-visit if you are a fan of water sports. 

2. Explore the Mexican Cuisine
