Welcoming more than two million visitors every year, Los Cabos doesn’t disappoint. Situated at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Sur state, its beaches tot up to more than 30 kilometers in length. These connect quaint colonial towns filled with cobblestone streets and atmosphere. A short distance inland, you’ll also find pristine desert landscapes and well-watered golf courses, while unforgettable seaborne adventures await in the Pacific. It’s not hard to see why the region attracts quite so many people. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the Best Things to do in Los Cabos.
Delve into the Culture of Los Cabos
Los Cabos is primarily known as a beach destination. However, the region’s culture is also worth dipping into. Los Cabos is dotted with potential attractions, so to make sure you don’t accidentally miss any, it’s a good idea to head out on an organized tour. For instance, our Insider Los Cabos City Tour will guide you effortlessly through the beautiful streets of San José del Cabo. Or check out our other San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas tours. Alternatively, you could blend time on the beach at Balandra with an exploration of La Paz. Our Insider La Paz City Tour allows for just that. It also takes in the Eagles’ famous Hotel California, before heading on to El Triunfo. Here, you’ll have the chance to take in one of Gustav Eiffel’s lesser-known works.
Swap the sands of the region’s beaches for any number of adventures off the beaten track. If you’re keen to get the adrenaline flowing there’s probably nothing better than our Canopy and Off-Road Adventure Tour. It combines the natural beauty of a UNESCO biosphere reserve with ATV driving, ziplining, and rappelling from the walls of Cabo Canyon. The specially designed off-road course is sure to challenge your skills behind the wheel, while Mexico’s longest and fastest zipline will have you screeching with joy.
But if you prefer your off-road adventures a little slower-paced, make sure you check out our Mexican Outback Tour and Camel Safari. While not native to Los Cabos, camels make an excellent way of discovering its desert landscapes. Tying them up securely, you’ll then sample some of the area’s top culinary achievements. From a local ranch, you’ll be able to fill your stomach with homemade tacos, succulent salsas, and just a little tequila and mezcal too.
Explore by Bike
All-terrain vehicles and camels are great, but there’s nothing like feeling a cool Pacific breeze on your skin as you get the blood pumping. Our E-Bike Beach Adventure Tour helps you do just that with a thrilling ride across sandy beaches. The e-bike will do much of the hard work for you as you zip along cactus-lined trails and glittering Pacific coastline. Once you’re all biked out, the tour ends with a festive buffet-style lunch complete with beer, mezcal, and a tequila tasting.
Take to the Water
Surrounded by the Pacific shallows on three sides, there’s no escaping the water in Los Cabos. Not that you’d ever want to. In fact, it’s far more likely that its spectrum of blues will draw you in day after day. To appreciate it, why not opt for a Luxury Sailing Tour, drifting among the secluded bays and dramatic rock formations that exist on this area of the coast. To get fully immersed, head beneath the waves with a Catamaran Tour and Snorkeling Experience. Aim for Santa Maria Bay if you can, this area of the coast is filled with corals and colorful fish. Or add a stop at Espiritu Island, a UNESCO world heritage site abundant with fish and marine mammals, with this Sea of Cortez Catamaran & Snorkeling tour.
