Travelling should be about taking a break from the conventional routines in your life and learning to be present with your surroundings. Depending on your personality, that could mean a variety of things – whether that’s travelling solo, taking the time to read, swimming in the ocean every day, or taking a digital detox. However, for others, being present means capturing a moment.  Only two hours from LAX, Cabo, Mexico has some of the most beautiful spots where you can find yourself in one of those moments. With modern day technology, it is easier than ever to quickly snap a shot of a whale breaching, or that incredible sunset while you’re eating dinner. If you’re looking to seize those moments and share them with family and friends on social media, make sure to check out five of the most Instagrammable spots in Cabo.

The Arch

Yes, it’s the most famous spot in Cabo, and  and yes, it’s not necessarily the most original shot you can take, but did you really visit Cabo San Lucas if you didn’t take a photo of the famous arch? The reason you’ve already seen this photo everywhere is because it lives up to the hype. It may just be an interesting rock formation, but there is something about arriving to this major attraction after sailing through the crystal blue water on a boat that makes you stop and stare. It’s almost as if you don’t fully realise you’re on holiday until you visit this site. Here’s a little tip: the best time of day for ultimate lighting is golden hour, right as the sun is setting!

El Farallon at The Resort at Pedregal

Wildlife Tours

A trip to Cabo is not complete without some sort of contact with nature. Various tour groups in Cabo make it extremely easy and desirable to adventure out into the nature and meet some furry – and slimy – friends.

Las Ventanas al Paraiso

Cabo would not be Cabo without the abundance of luxurious resorts. Some of these places are so gorgeous it can be hard to remember to leave the resort and see the rest of Cabo. Las Ventanas al Paraiso is one of these . Simply walk around the property  and take your pick of the overwhelming amount of picture perfect locations here. Maybe you’ll choose the Jacuzzi on your back patio that leads straight to the beach? Or perhaps that one swimming pool in a cave will be the lucky shot? And good luck trying to put your camera or phone away at dinner when you’re sitting in an array of pillows underneath a perfectly lit tree. Either way, any spot in Las Ventanas will ensure that you’re able to capture a moment of pure happiness and relaxation.
