Cabo offers an incredible variety of activities. You can also enjoy all types of watersports, such as kayaking, sailing, boogie boarding, water-skiing, snorkeling, diving and parasailing. Equipment can be rented at Medano Beach, the main beach of Cabo San Lucas. You'll also discover, while visiting Los Cabos, that there are great restaurants, nightlife, and outstanding fishing and golf.
Snorkeling and SCUBA diving are excellent for all levels near the arch. For the less experienced, try Pelican Rock, Neptune's Finger and the Sea Lion Colony. Advanced divers will be amazed by the Abyss, 100 feet from the arch. Daytime snorkel cruises depart mid morning for a few hours on the water, sailing to Santa Maria Bay or Chileno.
Cabo is also very famous for its long, empty beaches to desert and mountains. Guided day hikes and eco-tours to backcountry sites are available. Some hiking and natural history tours feature fossil fields, challenging hikes into the Sierra de la Laguna and day trips to old mining ghost towns.
North and east of San Jose are miles of trails and backcountry roads. Mountain bike excursions range from casual family outings with a stop for a picnic along the way, to challenging off-road tours led by experienced guides.
A fantastic way to experience Los Cabos is on a boat cruise. Two hour sunset cruises leave an hour before sunset, taking you around Land's End, then out into the open ocean for a look back on Cabo San Lucas Bay. Glass bottom boats run all day from the marina, to Land's End, with a view of the marine life below.
Horseback riding is another favorite activity in Los Cabos. You can explore the mystical desert on horseback. Cuadra San Francisco at Cabo Real offers desert and beach rides and specializes in family tours. Riders are matched to the perfect horse for their skill level with plenty of practice time in the ring before heading out with radio-equipped guides. Ride trails into Arroyo San Carlos and Venado Blanco, or ride near the surf on miles of sandy beach.
