These impressive marine mammals travel about 3,000 miles during a 10 to 12-month gestation period, and Cabo is the perfect place to witness their awe-inspiring enormity and grace up close in their natural environment.

Humpback Whales can reach sizes over 50 feet in length and weigh as much as 80,000 pounds, so you can imagine how unforgettable is to see them breaching out of the water and singing their melodic songs.

There are a lot of great gourmet dining options in Cabo San Lucas — but there are also street tacos. While you're spending your December in Cabo, eat up as many tacos as you can get your hands on.

You've never really had tacos (or fresh guacamole!) if you haven't had them in Mexico. You can find tacos sold on every street in Cabo. Make sure to try seafood tacos for a local flavor, especially the famous Taco Baja, also known as Fish Tacos. 

Tacos Baja are named after the state where they come from and where Cabo is located: Baja California Sur. These are traditionally made with fried white fish fillets, shredded red cabbage, pico de gallo -onion, tomato, and cilantro- and drizzled with a Chipotle creamy sauce, although you can find other yummy variations. 

Street tacos are a great way to grab a cheap and delicious lunch on the way to your next adventure.
