5 Low-Key Activities to Do in Cabo That Avoid Crowds

Does your idea of a dream getaway include lots of low-key activities and excursions?

The enchanting East Cape is full of things to do and places to see that cater to both social butterflies and those seeking more solitude.

If your vacation vibe is more relaxing and restful than the hustle and bustle, consider filling your itinerary with these serene, less-crowded activities in Los Cabos.

  • Hike Mt. Solmar

    Take your trip off the beaten path for an experience that’s less touristy and more up-close and personal with nature.

    Hiking Mt. Solmar is a great way to see some of the diverse, majestic sights in Los Cabos, especially with the furry friends you’ll have along the way–a group of dogs.

    Access to the trailhead is on private property and only accessible with a private tour guide. As it turns out, the guide is also the owner of a kennel that’s on the same property. As a result, you can often hike alongside well-trained pups as you wander the trail.

    At the top you can drink in views of Divorce Beach and Lover’s Beach, with sweeping views of the renowned El Arco (The Arch), the Bay of Cabo, the Marina, and Medano Beach.

    In addition to meeting and greeting dogs of all shapes and sizes, you’ll see beautiful boats and ships coming and going in the shimmering sea below for an altogether tranquil trip.

    This one-of-a-kind excursion, which takes about an hour each way up and down the mountain, is a great way to see gorgeous sights without fighting your way through packed crowds.

  • Go on a tasty taco tour

    One of the most unique activities in Los Cabos is going on a gastro adventure with the Juan More taco tour.

    Instead of hitting up the most popular, jam-packed eateries in the area, this taco tour invites you to more obscure spots to tantalize your taste buds with some of the best bites in the region.

    During your intimate guided walking food tour that starts in downtown Cabo San Lucas, you’ll sample fantastic fare like tacos (of course), tequila, and a variety of delectable traditional Mexican dishes, appetizers, and sides–all at your own pace.

    In addition to unleashing your inner foodie with savory snacks every step of the way, the tour will expose you to the vibrant, colorful culture of Los Cabos, with stops at hidden culinary delights and family-owned gems you may otherwise not be exposed to during your stay.

    You can find local tours listed online or ask your concierge to suggest one for you.

  • Explore the San Jose Estuary

    This natural treasure is home to hundreds of species of beautiful birds and other colorful wildlife.

    Arguably one of the most low-key activities in Los Cabos, an excursion to the San Jose Estuary allows you an opportunity to meander along trails and trek along a spectacular beach, where you can observe sea lions basking in the sun if you visit during the summer months.

    The sights and sounds of nature will fill the air as you stroll through the protected park or even take a sunrise kayaking trip, gazing at stunning bird species like Belding’s Yellowthroat, Black-Crowned Night Herons, White Ibis, Gray Thrashers, and other migrating waterbirds.

    If you prefer to see all that the estuary has to offer on two wheels, explore the area by bike, with an abundance of bike paths winding their way through the reserve.

  • Set sail on your yacht

    Whether you embark on an aquatic adventure aboard your personal luxury watercraft or charter a yacht at Marina Village, located in the heart of the Four Seasons Resort at Costa Palmas, there’s plenty to do on the high seas.

    Deep sea fishing

    Enlist the expertise of a local fishing guide and set out on a deep-sea fishing expedition.

    Your knowledgeable guide will be well-versed in the fish-rich waters of the sparkling Sea of Cortez, taking you to all the prime hot spots for snagging your own fresh catch of the day.

    Grill the fish yourself or have the chef prepare and plate your hard-earned feast, complete with all the trimmings.

    Sunset cruise

    Take your yacht for a spin and watch the sun sink below the horizon line as cotton candy-colored clouds dot the sky.

    Soak up your surroundings, including panoramic views of the Baja California Sur’s coastline, while the yacht’s five-star chef and staff whip up a gourmet dinner for you and your crew to enjoy.

    Sip cocktails or unwind with a glass of wine on deck, perhaps catching sight of magnificent marine life in the waves.

    Want to amp up the energy without a massive crowd? Create your own club atmosphere by letting the chief steward plan a theme party on the boat for you and your crew to party or dance the night away on your own terms. Dine al fresco before heading back to dry land, or stay aboard overnight in lavish guest quarters.

  • Unwind on a captivating camel safari

    Whether you’re vacationing solo, as a duo, or with a small group of your nearest and dearest, carve out time to embark on a camel safari ride through the mesmerizing Los Cabos landscape for a truly unforgettable encounter.

    Over the course of approximately three hours, you’ll be transported to a locally-run ranch and meet your camel before the main event commences, which is perfect for visitors of all ages.

    A half-hour camelback ride through the picturesque desert and alongside the Pacific Ocean leads to an educational nature walk, during which you’ll learn fascinating facts about the area’s geography and historic highlights.

    For the grand finale, you’ll end the experience with a traditional Mexican buffet lunch or dinner, followed by a campfire beneath the stars.

    Add a tequila and mezcal tasting for a perfect nightcap.

    Book this excursion yourself, or leave the planning to the Adventure Concierge at the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos Costa Palmas, where no detail will be left unturned in creating an indelible occasion.
