Vacation Value: Vouchers Offer Big Savings on Signature Los Cabos Activities

Summer has always been the season for savings in Los Cabos, but Los Cabos Guide is taking it to another level this year, offering 35 to 70 percent discounts at some of the region’s best local hotels, shops, and restaurants, as well as for popular activities like fishing, golf and sunset sails.

Adventures South Baja

Los Cabos Guide’s prepaid voucher programs offers discounted prices on some of the area’s most memorable adventures.

Here’s how it works:  Call the office for availability (624-143-1346, Toll Free: (800) 208-3924 or Vonage (619) 793-4973), then stop by to purchase (or arrange for delivery of) discounted prepaid vouchers that may be redeemed at full value at participating area businesses. If, for example, you want to take your family for dinner at Baja Peppers, one of the most popular local restaurants, you can buy $200 worth of vouchers at a 50 percent discount. In other words, you’d pay only $100 for a $200 meal. It’s that simple.

It’s also a win-win situation. Local companies are rewarded with more business during the slow summer season, while residents and vacationing visitors get to enjoy some of Los Cabos’ signature lodgings, adventures, and dining experiences at deeply discounted rates.

Savings rates vary from company to company, so feel free to visit the website for updated listings. Here are a few of the best deals currently available.

Action and Adventure

Dolphin Discovery

Who doesn’t like dolphin kisses? Dolphin Discovery’s swim and encounter programs offer fun for the whole family.

Bungee jumping will impress teenagers, but to impress the tykes and tots, sign up for dolphin swims and encounters through Dolphin Discovery in San José del Cabo. The popular programs allow youngsters to have up-close-and-personal experiences with these incredible marine mammals, including dolphin hugs and kisses. Vouchers are now offered at 35 percent discounts, and they promise memories that will last a lifetime.

Baja Buggys is another top local adventure company, and specializes in rugged, off-road excursions through some of Baja California Sur’s most beautiful areas. Race friends and family across a variety of desert, canyon, and mountain terrains, with sightseeing opportunities that include Pacific Ocean vistas and a visit to a 300-year-old aboriginal village.

Afterwards, nothing cleans off the desert dust like a sunset sail with tours of local landmarks like Land’s End, the Arch, Lover’s Beach, and Pelican and Scooby Doo Rocks. Get your sea legs while sipping on a margarita or an ice cold Pacifico aboard Pez Gato, Cabo’s original sunset party cruise boat. Pez Gato also offers  memorable snorkeling tours to pristine Santa Maria Bay, as well as wintertime whale watching excursions.

Still feeling a bit salty? Chill out on with Tropicat’s sunset jazz and wine tour, or put your dancing shoes on for sister ship Cabo Mar’s fiesta dinner cruise, complete with gourmet Mexican buffet. Both these catamarans offer smooth rides, plenty of photo opportunities, and perfect vantages from which to watch the sun descend beyond the southernmost point of the Baja Peninsula.

Vouchers for Baja Buggys, Pez Gato, Tropicat, and Cabo Mar all feature 35 percent discounts.


Wondering whether you can afford that bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Valle de Guadalupe? Don’t worry. With Los Cabos Guide’s prepaid voucher program, you can enjoy first-class wining and dining at budget-friendly prices.

Cata Wine

For romantic ambience and delicious Italian cuisine, it’s hard to beat Cata Wine in San José del Cabo.

The best deal right now is 60 percent off at Cata Wine, a romantic San José del Cabo based eatery that specializes in delicious Italian and Mexican cuisine, as well as hand-crafted martinis and entertainingly prepared after dinner coffee drinks. This place is magic, and hummingbirds sometimes flit by tables on their way get a drink from one of the nearby fountains.

Nick-San, the famed local sushi restaurant with locations at Plaza de la Danza in Cabo San Lucas and Las Tiendas de Palmilla outside San José del Cabo, is also a voucher program participant. Stop by for fresh local fish prepared in the Japanese fashion, but with Mexican accents. This unique fusion style was pioneered two decades ago by chefs Angel Carbajal and Masayuki Niikura, and Nick-San remains one of the most memorable dining experiences available in Los Cabos.

Nick-San and Madeira Bistro vouchers are both available at 35 percent discounts. The latter restaurant enjoys a central downtown location in Cabo San Lucas, and serves up heaping helpings of Brazilian steakhouse cuts on rodízio-style skewers. All-you-can-eat dinner deals include top sirloin, rib eyes, barbecued ribs, chorizo sausage, arrachera, and New York steak, plus sides of mashed potatoes and garlic bread, and a crispy fried banana dessert.

Senor Sweets

Decadent desserts and gorgeous Marina views are among Señor Sweets’ many charms.

Señor Sweets is also known for its delicious cakes and desserts—Italian gelato or molten lava cake, anyone? — but the restaurant has something to appeal to virtually every taste. Kids will love that breakfast specialties like French toast and waffles are served all day, while parents will appreciate more sophisticated menu options (like margaritas), as well as the gorgeous Marina views. Prepaid vouchers for Señor Sweets currently translate to a very sweet 35 percent discount.


Want to tell that special someone you love them without saying a word? Stop by Feinstein Jewelry in Cabo San Lucas. Owner Ed Feinstein has over 60 years of experience, and offers custom designed gold and silver jewelry featuring precious stones like rubies, emeralds, sapphires, pearls, and of course diamonds. Fair pricing is one of the primary reasons for Feinstein’s loyal local following, and when you take into account the 50 percent savings from the Los Cabos Guide prepaid voucher program, these exquisitely crafted gift items are the best deal in town.

There are a few rules for redeeming vouchers, but they’re pretty simple: 1) Let your waiter, or the business representative, know beforehand that you intend to pay with vouchers; 2) Sign the vouchers before paying with them;  3) Remember, tips are not included, and you may not get cash back. For instance, if the bill is $97.55 and you pay with $100 in vouchers, you will not receive change. Otherwise, the vouchers function exactly the same as U.S. currency.
