8 Outdoor Activities in Cabo San Lucas

From excited tourists to fresh homeowners who just bought their Cabo San Lucas real estate, anyone can enjoy this city's fun, sun-soaked activities. Mexico is such a beautiful place to be, and you deserve to experience as many outdoor wonders and adventures as possible. Now, if you don’t know where to start, you’re in luck. Here’s a comprehensive list of eight of the best activities while visiting or living in Cabo San Lucas.

Explore your adventurous side


A great way to enjoy a dozen different fun activities at once is to purchase a Wild Canyon Adventures park pass and have a blast. This unique fun park offers more vacation traditional things like a water park area and zip-lining, as well as one-of-a-kind experiences like exploring their wildlife sanctuary. For example, a rare treat of Wild Canyon Adventures is camel riding. Between the views and the safari experience, you can enjoy a 20-minute ride like none other across the Baja California Sur. This tour also comes with a nature walk, a Mexican buffet, and tequila tasting, so it's so much more than the camels, too.

While at Wild Canyon Adventures, you can also enjoy bungee jumping, hiking, biking, hanging bridges, and more.

The picturesque views around Cabo San Lucas are a big reason people love it there. So, if you want new ways to traverse Cabo’s wonders, try out four wheels — or hooves. At Cabo San Lucas Tours, you can enjoy the span of the local deserts on the back of an ATV or a horse. They also offer sailing, snorkeling, and other everyday Cabo staples. On your favorite kind of transportation, enjoy the Baja Desert and the sandy shores of the Migrino Beach north of Cabo San Lucas, where the traffic won’t get in your experience. As a Cabo San Lucas real estate owner, this company can become your guide to outdoor explorations.

One of the most majestic things you can do in Cabo San Lucas is spend time with the whales. If you’re lucky enough to be in this area during whale watching season, you’d be remiss to miss out. Even people who live in houses in Cabo often cite whale-watching as one of the most beautiful experiences in the area. Contact Whale Watch Cabo to get your tickets.
 
Also, if you’re concerned about the local Humpback Whales’ endangered status, you’ll be pleased to hear that Whale Watch Cabo works with the Los Cabos Whale Conservation Society. Together, they work towards the protection and conservation of the local population, making your visit pleasant for both you and the whales.

Set sail at sunset


As would be expected of any gorgeous peninsula, being out on the water is one of the most stellar activities that you do. When it comes to picking which sailing company to hire (because there are dozens throughout the area), one of the best there is Cabo Sails. This group has worked in the area for more than 19 years and is well known for its quality service. You can join tour groups or hire your own private sailboat or catamaran. You can also add snorkeling, whale watching, and sunset cruises to your order to make your experience all the better. Other great sailing tours come from Cabo San Lucas Tours, Cabo Adventures, and Cabo Sailing.
 
If you’re looking to own Cabo San Lucas real estate, you can even buy your own boat, rent a  space in a marina, and go sailing on the gorgeous Pacific waters whenever you want.

Be a wind or aquatic athlete



Between the strong Pacific gusts and the gorgeous Cabo San Lucas beaches, it's a perfect place to enjoy wind and water sports. If kitesurfing, windsurfing, and wing foiling are your style, head to Ventana Windsports, an ideal place to test your athletics on the water. This boutique resort also offers stand-up paddle-boarding, diving, fishing, and even mountain biking, just to give you some popular local variety. Besides gear, you also get great food and other beachside accommodations.
 
Not everyone is into high-action sports, though, so if you’d just prefer to take your friends, kids, or grandkids out on a lovely fishing cruise, head to Picante Sportfishing. This boat launch is right by downtown houses in Cabo San Lucas, so it's a convenient place to get on the water with an experienced crew and catch some beautiful mackerel or yellowfin tuna.

Swim with the fish


Do you want a one-of-a-kind aquatic experience right off the coast of Cabo San Lucas? Well, contact Dive Cabo, and you can do just that. While snorkeling is a riveting and popular service across the peninsula, you can swim with the local whale sharks. These gentle giants with a frightening name are great swimming partners. If you charter with Dive Cabo, you’ll get to see them. After all, they’ve been helping people dive with whale sharks for a decade with a 100% sighting rate. You also get to dive and swim for two hours before heading to a local restaurant on your way back to Cabo.
 
Meanwhile, if you want something a bit more low-key, there are snorkeling opportunities all around Los Cabos. Whether you go with popular local tours like Cabo Adventures or Cabo San Lucas Tours, you should focus on the three best spots in Cabo to snorkel: Pelican Rock at Land’s End, Santa Maria Bay, and Chileno Bay are all beautiful locations with tons of wildlife and crystal-clear waters.

Swing in style



A luxury Cabo trip is incomplete without stopping at the Quivira Golf Club. This sculpted course winds through deserts and beachsides to offer golfers unique geographical challenges and breathtaking views. As proof, this course was included in Golf Digest’s “World’s 100 Greatest Golf Courses.”
 
This location also offers spa treatment, so if half your family wants to relax and soak their feet instead of golfing, this is a great place to divide and conquer. This is a perfect place for Cabo San Lucas real estate owners to spend their time and unwind even during the chillier months of the year.

Walk in natural Cabo


For the people who like nature to be a little rawer, head to Cabo Pulmo National Park. A perfect day-trip drive up from Los Cabos, it's surrounded by undeveloped desert and mountain ranges. Here, you can explore the gorgeous landscape, beaches, and one of only three living reefs in North America. This area has been protected since 1995 to try to keep the local reef intact and thriving. So, if you want to witness the Mexican Pacific waters at their most natural, no place is better than this national park, only a little more than an hour away from houses in Cabo.
