Trendy Date Night Ideas in East Cape

If you’re visiting East Cape as a couple, you’re in for an itinerary full of romantic, fun events. From hiking to a secluded 40-foot waterfall to walking along the beach at sunset, there’s no shortage of date night ideas in East Cape.

East Cape is located a short distance from Cabo, on the quieter side of the South coast. The area is well suited to giving partners a chance to relax and unwind. All while experiencing the natural beauty of Baja’s iconic peninsula.

On your next trip, consider these date night ideas:

  • Enjoy an outdoor meal

    East Cape’s tropical climate and wondrous landscape offer breathtaking spots to enjoy a meal.

    Hop in the car and head just outside of San Jose del Cabo to Flora’s Field Kitchen. This local hotspot offers homegrown, handmade dishes in a lush, outdoor setting. Get a group together and make it a couples night, or simply bring your sweetheart.

    You’ll enjoy seasonal dishes and staples like Neapolitan-style pizzas. Be sure to grab a drink at the Farm Bar, which fuses fresh ingredients into each cocktail. The Farmarita, their signature drink, for example, is a unique twist on the traditional Margarita, featuring heirloom carrot infusion.

    If you don’t feel like making the trip, consider a sunset dinner right at your hotel. Many properties have on-site restaurants with stunning vistas, and resorts like Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas offer private sunset dinners too.

  • Stargazing

    Looking for a romantic date night that doesn’t involve crowds and expensive drinks? Plan a night of stargazing. East Cape is known for its bright sunny skies, and the absence of clouds makes stargazing a must. Since East Cape is 45 minutes east of the bustling, light-filled Cabo, you’ll have great views.

    If you want to keep it simple, wander outside your hotel at nightfall with a bottle of wine and a blanket. If you’re visiting East Cape as a couple and are staying at a place like Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos, you’re already in prime star-gazing territory. If you head to the beach, you can stargaze while listening to the waves crash into the shore.

    If you’re up for a ride, consider heading towards more rural areas like San Pedro Martir National Park. The park is located in a remote area and has three high-power telescopes on-site.

  • Go for a sunset beach walk

    East Cape’s location, sitting at the southern tip of Baja’s peninsula, offers amazing sunsets. So, why not stroll along the beach and watch the sun sink below the horizon with your loved one? Which beach is best? Consider heading to Lover’s Beach, which sits near the iconic arch on Land’s End. The granite arch that marks the intersection of the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean is adjacent to the Lover’s Beach.

    You can’t drive to it. You’ll need to board a water taxi or take a chartered boat to get there, but with a blanket and picnic basket of snacks, it’s the most coveted spot to watch the sun set.

  • Escape on a yacht for the weekend

    Extend your date night to an entire night aboard a chartered yacht. Sounds luxurious, right? It is. Guests and residents of Costa Palmas have their pick of tours, but the two-day, one-night tour to Isla Cerralvo is popular if you’re visiting East Cape as a couple.

    The waters near the island are clear to 30 feet, making it a great place to snorkel with local marine life. If you’d rather cast a line, it’s a great spot for sport fishing too. Spend time exploring the 18-mile island, eat your meals onboard the yacht, sleep at anchor, and glide back to Costa Palmas in the morning.

    Want to extend your time on the water? Opt for the three-night charter and visit Balandra Cove, Isla Espiritu Santo, Isla Partida, and Isla San Francisco. Each spot offers a different view, from the aqua waters of Balandra Cove to the pink and red volcanic rock on Isla Espiritu Santo. You won’t tire of the views or activities. Take the jet skis out, paddle around in kayaks, or explore the world below the surface with snorkel gear.

  • Hike to a waterfall

    If you’re up for a “date day” rather than night, consider hiking to a nearby waterfall. Leaving from Four Seasons Resort, you and your partner will travel 45 minutes by van before trekking to the secluded Santiago Waterfall; a 40-foot waterfall inside the Cañon de la Zorra in the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains.

    After snapping some pictures, head into the pooling water below for a swim. Spend some time wading in the beautiful waters that are flanked by tall, tan cliffs and boulders.

    You’ll leave from the resort in the morning. Plan to spend about four hours on the trip, which includes the ride up and back, which is about 1.5 hours.

  • Tequila tasting

    East Cape and its surrounding area is home to the agave plant, which is used in the production of tequila. The spirit has played an important role in Mexico’s commerce, culture, and tourism, which is why many couples add tequila tasting to their date night itinerary.

    You don’t have to look hard to find a tequila tasting. Many local restaurants and resorts offer one. At the Four Seasons, you can schedule an evening tequila tasting. You’ll not only sip the finest Mexican agave liquor, but you’ll also learn about the most prestigious tequila houses, crafting process, and suggested pairings. Each tasting features different types of tequila; including blanco, reposado, añejo and extra añejo.

If you’d like to extend your date nights in East Cape, it might be time to explore real estate options in the area. Costa Palmas offers several luxurious home choices. Some of them in an iconic neighborhood with internationally acclaimed dining, shopping, and yachting, known as Casa Blake. With different floor plans and price points, explore the elegant residences inside the 1500-acre property that comes complete with a golf course, swimmable beach, and a Beach and Yacht Club.
