Snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas
When in Los Cabos, I would say it is a must to go snorkeling. The water is crystal clear and water is just the right temperature. Hearing the water crash on the shore and on to the mountains is such a relaxing sound when paired with the ocean breeze. RMC Events took us out on a yacht to see the shore alongside the beautiful Sea of Cortez, get a breathtaking view of the famous El Arco de Cabo San Lucas, and to snorkel in the clear waters. The arch is home to many sea lions, and we even got see a manatee! Manta rays fly out of the water, and dolphins swim with the wake of the boats. We got swim with so many types of colorful fish when snorkeling – it was a blast! So if you ever find yourself in Cabo, put snorkeling on your list of must-do’s. It is an experience that you will never forget!
