Los Cabos done three different ways
Exploring the tip of Baja California by land, sea, air
Way down at the very southern tip of the Baja California peninsula, Los Cabos is a place of contrasts: Where ocean meets coastal deserts and luxurious resorts, and spas nestle among the rugged, rocky landscape. While you could spend your whole visit poolside sipping drinks and working on your tan, the best way to experience the region is to explore what land, sea and air have to offer.
No matter where you are in the convoy of utility vehicles speeding through the basin of a dry river gulch north of Cabo San Lucas, you will end up covered in a fine layer of ochre dust and sand. Take this piece of advice — bring a change of clothes and shower twice back at your resort. Cabo Adventures kits you out with bandanas to cover your face and hair, goggles to protect your eyes, a sturdy helmet, and a name tag (the only way to tell each other apart). After a safety lesson, you are let loose in a Polaris UTV, churning up dust as you race at highway speeds through sand dunes and over rocks. The adventure ends with the convoy racing onto the beach for a photo op with the roaring Pacific surf as a backdrop. (caboadventures.com)
Swimming next to a whale shark — the largest fish in the world, and, yes, a member of the shark family — you feel dwarfed by the creature. At one point, our group of four swimmers is encircled by three of them, making it increasingly harder for us to avoid bumping into each other as we try to keep a respectful distance from these oceanic giants. Cabo Adventures drives tourists from Cabo San Lucas to La Paz — the capital of Baja California Sur — to swim with the whale sharks in the Sea of Cortez. Before we even get in the water we are given strict instructions — keep your distance, stay out of their way, don’t panic in the water — and a special sunscreen to protect us from the sun and the fish from any toxins. Snorkels in mouth, we finally dive in the water as the giants swim past.
Visitors in need of an adrenalin rush should head straight to Wild Canyon Adventures, where eight zip lines cross the top of a steep and deep canyon. With more than 2,700 feet of lines strung across the gorge, it’s not unusual to see birds flying For more Los Cabos attractions, including restaurants and nightlife, go to metronews.ca.
below you as you glide across the canyon alone or in tandem with your friends. If you need a bigger adrenalin boost, a cable car ferries the brave to a glassfloored gondola suspended from the centre of the canyon. There you can bungee jump toward the canyon floor 300 feet below, or try out the Sling Swinger, where you free fall before swinging back and forth like a pendulum. (wildcanyon.com.mx)
