Looking for unexpected activities in Cabos? Los Cabos is home to lazy stretches of pristine beaches, a sparkling sea, and tranquil surroundings–but a world of adventure awaits around every corner.

The next time you dock your yacht at Marina Village at Costa Palmas, check out these six can’t-miss activities to take your grand getaway to the next level.

  1. 1. Hike to stunning waterfalls and hot springs.

    Unwind and recharge in sweet serenity when you reach the renowned waterfalls and hot springs of Los Cabos.

    • Cascada Sol De Mayo

      Relaxation and solitude await at the Cascada Sol De Mayo waterfalls, an oasis at the base of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountains.

      Just past the storied desert village of Santiago, you’ll take a short hike along the marked trail approximately half a mile to your dreamy destination. Swim in the cool, crystal clear water for instant rejuvenation.

    • El Chorro Hot Spring

      At the base of the Agua Caliente Canyon, past the village, flowing water collects in warm pools at the El Chorro Hot Spring.

      Sit back and let waves of healing energy melt your stress away. The soft, mineral-enhanced water will detox your body and spirit in no time. Stay for the day or set up camp overnight.

  2. 2. Fall in love with the local art scene.

    Los Cabos is home to several small coastal towns known for their curated collection of art galleries and artwork.

    Whether you’re staying at the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas or aboard your yacht, these nearby hotspots are well worth a day trip (or two).

    • San José del Cabo

      Situated just behind the historic town square and church in this postcard-worthy spot is the Art District.

      Here you’ll find a variety of high-end art galleries to peruse, including Arte Julian Garcia, Desertica Art Gallery, and Frank Arnold Gallery, to name a few.

      From November to June, Thursday nights are all about the town’s Art Walk, where visitors can chat with local artists, meet musicians, and sample delicious fare while admiring their creations.

    • Todos Santos

      Todos Santos is a charming town dotted with pre-colonial architecture, sidewalk cafes, and art galleries. It’s also home to many artists themselves, due to the area’s unique, desirable natural light.

      In addition to viewing beautiful paintings, the downtown district in Todos Santos showcases an eclectic mix of handmade jewelry and sculptures made from metal, wood, and stone.

  3. 3. Experience nightlife that never sleeps.

    Your vacation doesn’t have to end when the sun sets.

    Dock your yacht and take your social life out on dry land at Marina Village, the beating pulse of the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas.

    A lively port-of-call, Marina Village is the go-to spot for bonding with your crew or meeting new people. Travelers from around the world flock to Marina Village for a casual, inviting vibe enveloped in a sumptuous setting.

    An outdoor lounge, nightclub, and a bevy of bars are ideal for mingling.

    When you’re done dancing the night away, sit beneath the twinkling stars while you catch up with your nearest and dearest or get to know your fellow wanderers a little better.

    Watch as a steady stream of luxury vessels glide through the night, or pop into boutiques and shops filled with artisan wares and goods.

    Gather around the fire pit and listen to live music, or sample tastebud-tingling dishes at your choice of casual and fine dining options.

    Wood-fired pizzas, craft cocktails and wine, and fresh seafood options are sure to suit your every craving.

  4. 4. Discover a treasure trove of fish and other marine life.

    Head out on the high seas and soak up an endless array of aquatic activities.

    • Fishing

      Enjoy the world-class fishing the Sea of Cortez has to offer. Recruit a local fishing guide to take you to all the best spots for snapping up a fresh catch.

      The waters off the coast of Los Cabos are ripe for the picking; filled with marlin, yellowfin tuna, sailfish, mackerel, grouper, and more.

    • Snorkeling and scuba diving

      Charter a boat or take your personal watercraft out for a snorkeling or scuba diving adventure guaranteed to give a glimpse of colorful coral reefs and fascinating fish.

      A certified instructor can get you as close as possible to this magnificent menagerie of marine life.

    • El Arco

      A trip to the East Cape wouldn’t be complete without visiting El Arco, or “The Arch,” a jaw-dropping limestone formation formed over many years by time, tide, and wind.

      Cruise over to El Arco for a one-of-a-kind photo opp, and spot sea lions basking in the sun on the nearby beaches.

  5. 5. Go offroading in an ATV or on camelback.

    Take a break from the beach and head out on an offroading excursion you won’t soon forget.

    • ATV Tour

      Traverse the vast Baja desert on a professionally-guided ATV tour or for a fun, fast-paced adventure.

      Set against the beautiful backdrop of the Sierra de la Laguna Mountain range, you can end your day with a mouth-watering meal of traditional Mexican cuisine while feasting your eyes on the enchanting view.

    • Camel Safari

      Another way to take your holiday off the beaten path is to do so on camelback.

      See the sights from new heights as you ride along the Pacific Ocean and through the desert.

      Finish your exploration with a tequila tasting back at the ranch, where you can see cattle grazing, horses in the paddock, and meet the local cowhands.

  6. 6. Zoom through a canopy of trees on a zipline.

    Soar across deep desert canyons and lush landscape of the diverse Los Cabos terrain. Safely suspended by steel cables, you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the natural beauty of the area.

    Whether it’s your first time or just the latest of many, each experience takes you up-close-and-personal with nature like never before.
