At the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Peninsula lies the popular vacation spot called Los Cabos, a fascinating combination of two dramatically distinct seaside towns. On the western side is the trendy Cabo San Lucas, famous for its rowdy nightlife and beautiful beaches. To the east its tranquil sister San Jose which has retained the look and feel of an authentic Mexican town.
San Jose del Cabo weather is perfectly sunny all year long, and this together with its gorgeous Pacific coastline, make this town a perfect base from which to enjoy the surrounding natural environment. Local operators offer a variety of adventure tours including ATV rides, ziplining and whale watching. Hit the beach at nearby Playa Palmilla and Playa Santa Maria for excellent swimming and snorkeling.
Trending now is something totally unexpected: camel riding. Humans have used camels as a means of transport for thousands of years and they can easily carry about 500 pounds on their backs, earning these animals the nickname “ships of the desert.” So together with this perfect partner the ride usually traverses spectacular cacti-filled desert landscapes and even more beautiful, secluded Pacific beaches.
This is an easy, adventurous outdoor activity for the whole family.
