The year-round sun and warmth of Cabo is what makes it a great place for a getaway no matter when you need a dose of adventure. Pack your itinerary with the many fun and adrenaline-pumping things to do to make your perfect adventure journey throughout Cabo one to remember. These outdoor activities in Cabo San Lucas are sure to satisfy the adventurer in you.

Cabo San Lucas Activities For The Adventurer

The glistening waters off the shores of Cabo San Lucas are a wondrous place to explore. Get close to bottlenose dolphins, sharks, manatees, rays, sea turtles and a variety of fish species that call the water of Cabo home. Ask about daytime or sunset tours, as well as gear rental if you’re planning your own adventure. Another water adventure, fishing, may not seem like an adrenaline-pumping adventure, but you’d be wrong. There are several adventures to choose from, including inshore, nearshore, and deep sea fishing. Cast a line in search of your next meal in the form of marlin, Pacific Sailfish, tuna, roosterfish, and others you may not find swimming along the shores of home. Get the adrenaline really pumping with night fishing, or the added thrill of shark fishing. 

Outdoor Adventure Course

Start with a suspension bridge that moves with every step you take! Then, strap into the special “figure 8” safety device to descend through a rope on a mountain wall. Take it easy or fast, however you want to experience the adrenaline rush. Die-hard adventure seekers will definitely include the step, but some companies allow you to skip it. Finally, grab on and fly back down the canyon on a zipline course. Round-trip transportation and all gear including safety equipment is included in the three-hour adventure. Max group is 15 people. 


Gain a whole new perspective on adventure. Take off from the deck of a specially designed parasailing boat to fly high above the water surrounding Cabo. Reach heights up to 500 feet in the air and keep watch on the water from your bird’s eye view for dolphins, turtles, whales, and other sea life. Stay dry throughout the flight or wear your bathing suit for a refreshing dip in the water before flying up again and coming down safely on the deck. Bring a waterproof or disposable camera to capture the memories from your perspective. Rides are approximately 15 minutes of airtime, but the whole excursion duration depends on the number of fliers. 

Baha Desert on Camelback

While some beach towns offer a tour down the beach on horseback, Cabo offers a slightly different experience that will entertain your adventurous spirit. You’ll still sit atop an animal, but that animal is a camel! The usually four-hour excursion has both morning and afternoon departures, and wanders through the Baha Desert and Cabo countryside. You’ll learn about area flora, fauna, and culture before stopping for an authentic Mexican lunch featuring tequila, tortilla-making, and more. 


You may not think of a beach town like Cabo as a place to hike, but you’ll find there are plenty of trails to explore beyond the beach and water. Pack your sun gear, water, and camera and lace up your hiking shoes. You’ll catch glimpses of local wildlife in its natural habitat, along with other breathtaking sights. Make sure to share the trail, as many trails are a great path for bikers and horseback riders, too. 

Beach & Desert 4×4 Tour

Trade the camel or your hiking shoes for an ATV and go places you can’t get to on foot or by camel. You’ll cut through the Migrino Desert’s sandy terrain along a winding route to area mountains, then loop back for some adventure negotiating the iconic beaches of Cabo. Tour companies include all the safety gear, off-roading equipment, and purified water to keep you hydrated through the journey, but park entry fees and insurance for your ride are separate fees. 

Spa Day

After all the adventure, you’re going to need to work the kinks out. Relax and enjoy some well-deserved time at one of Cabo’s many day spas. Choose from the many services each offers, including mani/pedi services, facials, body wraps or scrubs, and more. Indulge in a variety of massages that will work out all the muscle tension so you can head home fully relaxed. Some spas even offer a menu of services just for men, that caters to their unique needs. 

Never-Ending Cabo Adventure

Once you’ve decided to make Cabo your adventure-seeking destination, make sure your next step is booking a private vacation rental with LuxMex. Choose a home up to 10 bedrooms, so you can enjoy a trip with your closest adventure-seeking buddies, all the way up to an adventure of a lifetime for a large group. Enjoy the privacy of your own bedroom where you can catch a nap or get a good night’s sleep before another adventurous day or spend some down time in private outdoor spaces like patios and balconies. Choose a premium unit for perks and upgrades like hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, flat screen TVs, and much more.
