Vacation time means finding new activities and experiences, and whale watching is an exciting adventure for everyone. Whether you’ve never seen a breaching whale or you’ve experienced it many times, it remains a stunning and breathtaking experience.

At Grand Solmar Rancho San Lucas Golf & Spa in Los Cabos, there’s a good chance you’ll see whales right from the resort, as its location on the Pacific Ocean makes it the ideal locale in the winter months.

Starting in mid-December, whales appear after making a migration of thousands of miles, visiting the warm waters off the Baja Peninsula to give birth to calves and teach them how to swim. When they arrive, visitors to the Mexican spot where the desert meets the ocean get to experience their majestic beauty.

Gray and humpback whales can often be seen from Rancho San Lucas, located just north of Cabo San Lucas on a pristine beach. In fact, golfers often spot the mammals while enjoying the centerpiece of this 834-acre master-planned resort and residential community.

If you’re a golfer, you’ll love the Greg Norman Signature Golf Course, just steps from the resort and overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Designed by world-renowned professional golfer Greg Norman, it features a 7,210-yard layout that’s specifically tailored to the terrain and locale.

If you don’t golf, you can enjoy hiking and biking trails, a full-service spa, and a lagoon with activities for everyone: swimming, kayaking, water slides, a rope swing, and a lazy river. There are also infinity pools, hot tubs and swim-up pool bars, and cabanas on the beach where you can keep an eye out for whales.

The concierge service at the resort can help you book an excursion if you prefer to watch from the water, with options as varied as Zodiac boats to sunset cruises.

Back at the resort, enjoy fine dining on-site with the choice of an All-Inclusive or European Plan. And enjoy it all in safety, as Rancho San Lucas has new policies, procedures and social distancing practices as part of the Grand Solmar Vacation Club’s Solmar Standards in Safety and Care.

Experience a thrill of a lifetime, once or many times, with a whale-watching vacation at Grand Solmar Rancho San Lucas Golf & Spa in Los Cabos, Mexico.
