The incredible geographical diversity of the Los Cabos region – rugged mountains, cactus-covered desert landscapes, and the juncture of the Pacific Ocean and the Sea of Cortés – translates to a tremendous array of adventure-laced tour and excursion options for visitors, from horseback riding and off-road racing to snorkeling and kayak trips and sunset sails in Cabo San Lucas Bay.
Opportunities abound for those seeking seagoing adventure. Cabo Expeditions specializes in family-friendly outings like snuba (a snorkeling-scuba hybrid) and submarine tours, as well as unforgettable daytrip explorations of the uninhabited island of Espíritu Santo near Baja California Sur’s capital city of La Paz. High Tide Sea Expeditions offers picturesque kayak tours from the Cabo San Lucas Marina to Land’s End and back, with memorable stopovers at Lover’s and Divorce Beaches for sunning, snacks and snapshots. And luxury catamaran Caborey hosts the area’s premier dinner cruise, with a five-star feast followed by lively Latin American singing and dancing.

Wide Open Baja provides a bit of perspective on what it’s like to compete in the peninsula’s most famous off-road race, the rugged Baja 1000. And ace pilot Ernesto Magaña acts as guide on what may be the area’s most spectacular tour, aerial looks at local landmarks from the rear seat of a motorized hang glider.
