For travelers who like diving, there are a multitude of options that take visitors to top dive locations where they can see an array of sealife, including colorful fish and sea turtles. Tours operated by local companies such as Cabo Adventures, Dive Cabo, Cabo Expeditions and High Tide offer flexibility and inclusivity and are ideal for families and multigenerational groups.
New to diving or just starting out? Many companies offer lessons for those who are new to snorkeling and scuba diving. These adventures can also be combined to include sailing, kayaking, paddle boarding and visits to Cabo's famous El Arco and Lover's Beach.
Los Cabos' land-based adventures are second to none. There are so many options available in the region. The desert meets the sea here, making the area unique and creating several singular experiences that blend the sea and sand.
All-terrain vehicles are popular for visitors looking to explore the breathtaking, rugged terrain off road. operators like Amigos Activities, Cactus Tours, Cabo Adventures and G Force offer day trips that get up close and personal with the natural beauty of the region. Guides explore the local history and the flora and fauna, making the experience fun and educational. ATV tours can accommodate guests as young as 6 years old, making it a great family-friendly activity as well.
Other adventurous experiences fun for the whole family include camel rides on the beach, zip lines, bungee jumping UTV rides and e-bike rides.
One of the best ways to relax on vacation is spending some time on the beach. Los Cabos at the tip of the Baja Peninsula, is surrounded by water with plenty of white sand calling to travelers and resorts perched on the shore. While all beaches in the area are ideal for a sandy stroll and relaxing in a beachside cabana, the region also has rough surf and strong undertows in certain places.
The area's swimmable beaches make up for those that are just for strolling with stunning protected crystal clear bays, sparkling waters ideal for splashing, swimming, snorkeling and paddling. Among the most popular swimmable locations are Medano Beach in Cabo San Lucas and Lovers Beach near El Arco. In addition, Playa Acapulquito and Chileno Beach are located on the Tourist Corridor. Cabo Pulmo Marine Park is known as one of the best snorkeling destinations in the world.
