The things to do in Cabo San Lucas are as varied as they are exciting: jet-skiing, banana-boating, parasailing, kite surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling and whale watching are some of the many sea based options on offer. A rugged coastline, the world famous Cabo beaches, and the nutrient rich waters of the Sea of Cortez all make for a perfect natural setting in which to explore and enjoy these activities.
For the more adventurous who want to get out into the rugged outback of the Baja Peninsula that surrounds the city, a day trip into the Sierra de la Laguna mountain range is an incredible world filled with giant Mexican cardon or elephant cacti (with heights of up to 60 feet), scavenging caracara birds of the falcon family and an endless labyrinth of wet and dry arroyos. Hiking, mountain biking, climbing, zip lining, rappelling and ATV’s are some of the many ways in which to explore this beautiful desert landscape.
Back to the Sea of Cortez that separates the city from mainland Mexico, an abundance of big game fish has made this region a popular destination for serious anglers, with 35 identified species, including black, blue and striped marlin.
Whether riding on a camel on a beach, snorkeling in Cabo San Lucas, swimming with sea lions in the Sea of Cortez, attempting some of the famous Cabo San Lucas scuba diving, or exploring the rugged terrain of the Sierra de la Laguna, the memories will be long lasting regardless of what you do. The rich coastal region and the mountainous desert of Baja combine to offer a natural environment that has become one of the best made-to-measure vacations destinations in the world.
