A mid-range, family-friendly timeshare resort on Playa el Medano at the southern tip of the Baja Peninsula. Close to lots of shopping, nightlife, restaurants, and bars in downtown Cabo San Lucas. All-inclusive package is available.
Fun and lively, but without the chaotic spring-break clientele or atmosphere, Villa Del Palmar is a great beach getaway destination for families, couples, and singles. Weekly themed events and an on-site sports bar give social butterflies plenty of opportunities to interact with others.
With 460 units, Villa Del Palmar is one of the larger resorts in Cabo San Lucas. All accommodations have fully equipped kitchens, a balcony or terrace, and many have ocean views. Five different room categories range from junior suites — with two double beds or a queen — to a presidential three-bedroom suite with three bathrooms, a sunken tub, dining area for eight, and a large living area and terrace.
Eight different restaurants are on-site, offering a wide variety of food to accommodate every mood and palate. Choose from Argentinian, Mexican, sushi, deli selections, grilled favorites, Californian-Italian fusion, and healthy “farm-to-table” fare. Guests with the all-inclusive package have access to buffets for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and the menus change throughout the week to coincide with various theme nights and events.
Dozens of on-site activities will keep everyone in the family busy. For kids, there are a variety of arts, crafts, games, and classes. Adults have plenty of options as well—beach volleyball, mini golf, water aerobics, kayaking, paddle boarding, mixology classes, cooking classes, dance classes, games, movies, and live shows.
Cabo San Lucas is a veritable epicenter of activity. Along with great restaurants, bars, shopping, and nightlife, countless tours and excursions are available. For water lovers, deep sea fishing, whale watching, glass bottom boat tours, snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, paddle boarding, and flyboarding are all available. Landlubbers can choose from golf, city tours, ATV desert canyon tours, bicycling, and zip lining.
Not to be missed is Land’s End, visible from Villa Del Palmar. This remarkable slice of natural scenery must be seen up close to be appreciated. Massive granite rock formations rise out of the blue waters of the Sea of Cortez; the most famous is the 200-foot El Arc, a natural arch that was formed in the rock itself. From the marina in Cabo San Lucas, rent a kayak or take a water taxi to this beautiful spot. Be sure to get plenty of pictures from the water — it’s the best vantage point — and then spend some time walking along the rugged coast and relaxing in the sunshine on Lover’s Beach.
