Headed to East Cape? This hidden oasis just east of Cabo has some of the best activities for adrenaline-junkies you will find on the continent. In and around the area, there are a number of activities fit for any adrenaline level.
Whether you want to free fall from a plane or soar through the water with a kite, East Cape has an activity for you. Check out these fast-paced activities that you can add to your next trip itinerary:
What’s more thrilling than skydiving? If you’re ready to jump from a plane and glide to the earth with the aid of a parachute, try Skydive Cabo. Choose from two different heights, 11,500 feet, where you’ll free fall for up to 35 seconds, or 8500 feet, for a 25-second free fall.
On your way down, you’ll have breathtaking views of Cabo San Lucas.
If you like the idea of skydiving but aren’t quite ready to leap from an aircraft, consider indoor skydiving. Cabo Indoor Skydiving gives you the chance to float on air. Inside a skydiving tunnel, you’ll weightlessly hover above the ground. There’s no plane, no parachute, and no harness.
Indoor skydiving is much cheaper than traditional skydiving too.
2. Snorkel or scuba dive
The Sea of Cortez is teeming with life, making it one of the most impressive places to snorkel or scuba dive. While there are a handful of underwater sights to explore like Pelican Rock and Playa Santa Maria, Cabo Pulmo National Park is the area’s crown jewel.
You can explore the seas any time of year, but summer and fall provide the best visibility. You’ll be able to see 100 feet in the sapphire waters.
You don’t need any special training to snorkel, but you do to scuba dive. There are many classes that you can take right in Cabo. Manta Diving, for example, offers a short, four-hour class where you can dive with professionals. You can take multi-day courses to gain a certification.
If you’re unfamiliar with the area, it’s best to book a tour. The concierge at Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos is happy to reserve a spot for you and your family.
3. ATV Tours
Cabo was originally known for its dusty desert nature, which made for ideal ATV terrain. You can tear around the sun-soaked land in an offroad vehicle and see sights you can’t get to with a car or truck.
As you’d expect, there are many local companies that offer ATV tours. Cabo Adventures, for example, offers a four-hour excursion complete with an ATV adventure and a camel ride at a nearby ecopark.
Wild Canyon’s Offroad Runners gives you a chance to trek through Cabo’s outback, cross creeks, ride along the ocean, and take your ATV across an impressive suspension bridge in the canyon.
4. Bungee Jump
For a truly memorable experience, give bungee jumping a try. In Cabo, you can jump out of a 300-foot-high glass gondola that’s suspended in a canyon. Are you up for it?
There aren’t many companies that offer bungee jumping, but those that do are willing to pick you up from your hotel. It’s usually a day-long trip. Some companies add some extras like lunch or drinks after your jump.
When you think of thrill-seeking activities, golf might not come to mind. However, if you’re a fan of the links, there’s no bigger thrill than setting foot on a legendary course.
Cabo is home to several well-known greens, including Diamante, Quivira, and the Costa Palmas Golf Club.
Situated on a luxurious resort in the East Cape, the Costa Palmas Golf Course is a championship 18-hole course with desert and ocean views. You’ll be just as impressed with the design of course, which creator Robert Trent Jones Jr. refers to as an “emerald symphony,” as you are with the mountainous terrain.
You can play the whole course or do the six-hole walking loop as a morning wake up call. No matter how you choose to play, this course has everything you need to get your adrenaline moving.
Have you dreamt of reeling in a marlin? Or maybe a roosterfish? There’s no better place to make your fishing dreams a reality than off the shore of Ease Cape. The crystal waters are home to hundreds of species of fish. From sailfish and yellowfin tuna to wahoo and groupers, your line will dance all day.
Some of the best fishing spots are 15-20 miles from shore while others are scattered along the coastline where deep shelves provide a sanctuary for fish.
You can certainly charter a boat or take your own yacht out on the water, but having a guide on board can be extremely helpful. They not only know where to fish, but can give you advice on things like the best time of day to go and the best bait to use.
While a day of fishing is rewarding itself, you can also bring your fresh catch back to your hotel and have it expertly seasoned, cooked, and served.
Ready to try something really unique? Kitesurfing is quickly becoming a popular sport in East Cape. Powered by the El Norte winds, surfers are propelled across the water with a large kite in the air and a board on their feet.
The winds in East Cape are ideal for this sport and have birthed iconic competitions like Lord of the Wind, which is held near East Cape every year. Over the past decade, the competition has turned into a multi-day event with concerts, parties, and fiestas.
Interested? You can take kitesurfing lessons at Four Seasons and learn how to harness the power of the wind.
Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas is a great home base for all of these activities. Book your stay today and fill your days with memorable adventures that you’ll only find near East Cape.
