Thinking of visiting Mexico in the summertime? You are in for a treat! Regardless of whether you plan to stay in Cabo San Lucas, Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, the Islands of Loreto, or Cancun, you are sure to have a lot of fun! In this article, we have gathered the best things to do this summer in each of our destinations.
Cabo San Lucas
With spectacular sandy beaches and wonderful sunny weather, Cabo is the perfect summer destination. If you decide to plan your vacation there, getting bored will never be an issue. The region, which has been blessed with breath-taking scenery, will surprise you with the abundance of beauty and things to do.
- Head on a boat trip around Land’s End
The impressive geographical wonder is known to be one of the most popular tourist attractions in Mexico. Set on the Southern edge of Cabo, Land’s End features dramatic rock formations, natural arches, and stunning sandy beaches.
Visiting the iconic landmark will be a wondrous experience any part of the day, but those who wish to have a romantic evening will have a wonderful time heading on one of the sunset boat tours. Admire the wide variety of sea life, discover the picturesque beauty of El Arco, and take an Instagram-worthy photo at Lover’s Beach.
- Embark on a Camel Safari
In Cabo, you can meet and interact with camels, which is a unique draw for the area! Depending on the type of experience you would like to have, you can do a simple meet and greet or even ride a camel around the desert. Get ready to meet your newest camel best friend and even give him/her a carrot kiss (which will occur when you put a carrot between your lips to get your new friend to lean in for a kiss). To book this experience, please contact Member Services at 1-800-852-4755 and ask for the Outback Camel Safari with Cabo Adventures.
In beautiful Puerto Vallarta, life revolves around the water. One of the best ways to experience the city in the summer is to explore its splendid beaches and colorful marine life.
- Go hiking
Puerto Vallarta has many notable routes that lead to swimming holes and waterfalls. Since rain is more common in summer, local rivers have more water, which means you can enjoy the beauty of water holes to the fullest.
If you are not afraid to get off the beaten track, head to Palo Maria Waterfall and enjoy the lovely natural surroundings. The water holes are just at the right temperature to go for a cool, refreshing swim after your hike.
- Try windsurfing
Playa Los Muertos is one of Puerto Vallarta’s most popular beaches. Although most travelers prefer to sunbathe or have a stroll down the pier, Los Muertos is also an excellent place to try windsurfing. Thanks to its calm waters and gorgeous views, windsurfers of all levels are sure to have a wonderful time here. Plus, having new experiences is what vacations are all about.
Travelers looking for unspoiled coastal beauty will find Riviera Nayarit a true gem. Slowly becoming one of the top places to visit in Mexico, the state offers many opportunities for having fun and enjoying nature.
- Head on a sailing adventure
When thinking of Mexico, sailing is probably not the first thing that pops into your mind, but it really is one of the best summer activities in Riviera Nayarit. Bahia Banderas Bay is one of the largest natural bays in the area, which is why it is a great point for sailing. During summer, it is also where many fun sailing and boat-related events take place.
- Enjoy zip-lining
Since Riviera Nayarit is home to stunning exotic jungles and tropical rainforests, it is not a surprise that zip-lining is a popular attraction. If you love a good dose of adrenaline, this is the perfect summer activity for you! Climbing up the ladders and rappelling down a network of cables guarantees you some of the best and most unique views in the area!
Islands of Loreto
Wondering what to do at the Islands of Loreto in the summertime? With so much to explore in the gorgeous area, you will always find something beautiful and exciting to do.
- Experience the crystal-clear waters
The Islands of Loreto have some of the most beautiful and clearest water in all of Mexico. That is why going kayaking or paddleboarding will be such a memorable adventure. Plus, you will be in what is known as the “aquarium of the world” and are bound to see so much wildlife that you can’t see anywhere else. If you stay at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto, we can assist you in organizing the activities. All you must do is show up and have fun!
- Play golf
TPC Danzante Bay at Villa del Palmar at the Islands of Loreto has won Mexico’s Best Golf Course for three consecutive years and has been nominated for this honor again by the World Golf Awards this year. TPC Danzante Bay boasts beautiful views all the way along the course (with Hole 17 being a favorite for many due to its stunning views) and provides an exceptional golf experience for all. Designed by master golf course designer Rees Jones, this course is one you will not want to pass up!
Considered the heart of the Mexican Caribbean, Cancun has something to offer for every traveler. So, whether you wish to enjoy its powdery white-sand beaches or dance your worries away at one of the world-famous nightclubs, Cancun is a great place to plan your summer vacation.
- Explore the Ancient Chichen Itza Ruins
If you wish to learn more about Mayan history, make sure to include a visit to the Chichen Itza Ruins in your summer itinerary. As one of the Seven Wonders of the World, it is a site that deserves your attention.
Since Cancun is believed to be the biggest Mayan city in the area, you will find many examples of the ancient buildings and structures that even today are an impressive sight to see.
- Discover the MUSA Underwater Museum
Have you ever visited an underwater museum? In Cancun, you have the chance to do so!

You can take a boat out to this area and either view the museum through a glass bottomed boat, or even snorkel or dive the area.
