We were not fans of Cabo San Lucas. There appear to be some lovely beaches, but we did not visit them. We did the dune buggy excursion on our first day in Cabo (I wrote a separate review on the Carnival site) and stayed on the ship to sun, relax and chill on the second day. I thought about taking the kids to the beach on Day 2, but they wanted to sleep in and we had to be back on the tenders by 3:15pm, so I decided it wasn't worth it. We could hear the partying from the bars all the way out where the ship was anchored. That's just not our scene.
