The 20-mile coastal corridor that connects cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo is home to many of the area’s most luxurious seaside resorts, as well as some of its most notable activities options.
Golf and beaches are particularly well-represented in the Tourist Corridor. More than half of the region’s championship-level layouts are located here, including the world-class designs from Jack Nicklaus at Palmilla, El Dorado, and the Ocean Course at Cabo del Sol. And Robert Trent Jones II’s Cabo Real course put Los Cabos on the golfing map when whales were spotted breaching near greens during a 1996 PGA Senior Slam event.
Playas Chileno and Santa María are among the most beautiful local beaches, offering golden sands and safe swimming, snorkeling and kayaking. Playa Las Viudas, or Widow’s Beach, is popular with photographers due to its evocatively shaped volcanic rock formations. And Playa Monumentos, or Monuments Beach, boasts some of the best surfing in Baja California Sur, although its tricky left-hand point break and rocky hazards are decidedly not for beginners.
But there are also other options. The Baja California peninsula’s biggest theme park, Wild Canyon, is located in the corridor, and offers adventurous pursuits that range from zip-lines and bungee jumping to camel quests and off-road racings. Cuadra San Francisco, meanwhile, is the premier local stop for riders, with a stable of nearly 50 horses available for beach and trail rides, as well as other equine-related activities.
