Adventures in Cabo San Lucas

One of the best ways to discover and enjoy all that Cabo San Lucas has to offer is by hooking up with a company called Cabo Adventures.  ‘Inspired by nature,’ Cabo Adventures offers a wide variety of activities to choose from, designed for both adults and children, that will bring out the adventurer in you.

If you love dolphins, Cabo Adventures offers the chance to Swim with the bottlenose Dolphins, spend some time up close and personal through a Dolphin Encounter, or through Dolphin Kids, a program specially designed for children ages 4 to 9.  There’s also the opportunity to learn more about the actual work involved in training and caring for dolphins through the Trainer for a Day program.

The varietal Outdoor Adventure is one of the most popular tour activities offered by Cabo Adventures.  Experience the Baja outdoors by first flying along a set of zip-lines, followed by a suspension bridge, rope swing, and rope ladder; and then finish off the adventure by utilizing climbing walls, rappel lines, another bridge, and ending with a tandem zip line back down to the base camp where you’ll unwind with a nature walk.

The 4×4 Desert Safari offers a unique experience into the Baja desert in a small group onboard a Mercedes Benz Unimog.  With a stop at a local ranch where you’ll enjoy an authentic Mexican lunch of tortillas and beans, the knowledgable guides will keep you informed along the way.  You’ll have photo ops of the desert and the pristine white sand beaches that you’ll pass along the way; you’ll even stop for a well deserved shot of tequila.

With an average visibility of 100’ and water temperatures of 81°, the Baja area has long been known for its excellent and abundant scuba diving.  Cabo Adventures, the only five-star Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI) dive facility in all of Los Cabos, offers an array of PADI instruction ranging from beginner to those wanting to become certified divers.  For those who are already certified, divers can explore shipwrecks, coral reefs, sand falls, and view a variety of undersea life like sponges, tropical fish, and eels of Los Cabos.

Taking a Sunset Sail onboard an America’s Cup Yacht is the perfect way to combine adventure and the beautiful sunsets only the Baja can offer.  But if you’re looking for more adventure, maybe the America’s Cup Match Racing offered by Cabo Adventures will be more to your liking.  Your tasks during the exhilarating hands-on racing experience will be matched to your physical abilities as you become part of the working crew onboard.  Enjoy the amazing views of El Arco, Lover’s Beach, and the dramatic coastline of Cabo; if you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of dolphins in their natural habitat.
