Make your next glamorous getaway to East Cape one to remember by booking one (or more!) of these action-packed adventures.

  • Whale Shark Encounter

    When you’re staying at the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, let the resort’s onsite concierge coordinate one of the most thrilling excursions in Los Cabos during your stay–swimming with whale sharks.

    Whale shark encounters are only available in select destinations worldwide. As the biggest fish in the sea, these majestic creatures are a stunning sight to behold.

    You’ll take a day trip to nearby La Paz, where you’ll spend the morning hours swimming in the serene, sparkling ocean in awe alongside these magnificent gentle giants. In the afternoon, you’ll head to town to explore all that Baja’s capital city has to offer.

    Get up close and personal with the region’s history by visiting local art galleries and museums.

    Pull up a chair and soak up the surroundings at one of many seaside bars and restaurants offering panoramic ocean views.

    The best part? The Costa Palmas concierge takes care of all the details, so all you have to do is buckle up and enjoy the ride.

    This seasonal excursion is available from December to March and is subject to weather conditions.

  • Todos Santos City Tour

    Get to know the magical city of Todos Santos during a memorable evening tour led by a local resident.

    During this tour, which offers private transportation, you’ll be able to drink in the views of the coastline before heading back into town to uncover local landmarks and brush up on the town’s rich history.
    One of several notable stops along the tour includes visiting the city’s famed Hotel California, which was built in 1947 by a Chinese businessman.

    Local legend has it that this hotel is the subject of the classic hit song “Hotel California” by The Eagles. While no definitive proof has been identified to support the claims, visitors and locals alike can’t help but notice the many similarities between the song’s subject and the hotel itself.

    You’ll also be able to shop, dine, and browse at the Todos Santos Flea Market, well-regarded as a regional treasure.

    Here, you can watch the intricate, handmade basket weaving process, sample delicious local cuisine at various farm fresh food stands, and find unique gifts for everyone on your list, like authentic Mexican silver, original artwork, and handcrafted artisan wares.

  • Sport Fishing

    Another one of the top excursions in Los Cabos is sport fishing with local resident (and world record-holding spearfisherman) Sebastian Melani.

    On this day-long excursion, seamlessly coordinated by the Costa Palmas Adventura team, you’ll head out on the Sea of Cortez, one of the richest bodies of water in the world that’s brimming with a menagerie of fish.

    With Melani’s expert, hands-on guidance, you can expect to come back with an extra fresh catch of the day for your chef to prepare for dinner–not to mention a major adrenaline rush.

    The most common catches include Marlin, Yellowfin Tuna, Dorado, and more–with over 900 species of fish and 2,000 species of marine invertebrates that call the Sea of Cortez home, the possibilities of what you’ll discover are seemingly endless.

  • Sunset Cruise & Cabo Sightseeing Tour

    On this enchanting excursion, you’ll board a boat (one of the best catamarans in Cabo) with your local tour guide and set sail along the southern tip of the peninsula, known as Land’s End.

    Along your voyage, you’ll pass by the iconic rock formation El Arco, which, in addition to being a gorgeous sight to see, also makes a stunning photo backdrop.

    You’ll stop by Lover’s Beach, which is arguably one of the most beautiful stretches of sand in the world, as well as the spot where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet.

    On the other side of Lover’s Beach lies the equally beautiful but much more treacherous Divorce Beach. With its rough waters and rocky conditions, it’s best to look but not touch at this exotic locale.

    From there, the cruise continues with a delectable dinner and flowing drinks to keep the party going. Be on the lookout for sea lions sunning themselves on nearby rocks.

    Energetic live music and a special show performance put the perfect finishing touches on your experience as the sun sinks into the cotton candy-colored skyline.

  • Guided Snorkel Tour

    Unlock the many treasures of the Sea of Cortez during a guided underwater snorkeling exploration.

    Held in Santa Maria and Chileno Bay, two of the safest swimming bays in Los Cabos, you can let your worries melt away and immerse yourself fully into the experience.

    Your skilled guide will take you to all their favorite spots, departing from Santa Maria’s beach, just a short 20 minutes from where the cruise ship docks.

    After a tutorial on using the mask and snorkel, as well as some extra safety tips, you’ll be ready to hit the water.

    Upon the conclusion of an approximate 30 minutes of snorkeling at Santa Maria Bay, you’ll head on over to Chileno Bay for the next snorkeling segment, or you can choose to relax on the beach before heading into the water.

    This three-hour journey ends with private transportation back to the marina, where you can board your yacht or boat and head back home with amazing new memories in tow.

Want to tap into your inner adventurer on a more regular basis? Consider purchasing a piece of opulent waterfront property near the fabulous Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas and unlock all the excitement East Cape has to offer whenever you wish.
