Exploring Los Cabos by Land: 6 Things to Do

A glamorous getaway to luxurious Los Cabos means never running out of places to go and things to do.

If you want to uncover a new side of your favorite luxury vacation spot, you can fill your days–and nights–with action-packed things to do on land.

Whether you arrive by sea or sky, explore Los Cabos like never before with these six adrenaline-pumping activities.

  1. Soak away stress in El Chorro Hot Springs

    What could be more relaxing than immersing yourself in one of nature’s own therapeutic healing spots?

    Located about four miles past the charming small town of Miraflores, El Chorro Hot Springs draws tourists year-round, and is one of only two local hot springs in the area that are accessible to the public.

    These rejuvenating mineral pools can be found at the base of the Agua Caliente Canyon, a narrow space located behind a dam. This sizable spring collects water from the canyon, causing the temperature to get warmer as you get closer to the canyon.

    Choose your sweet spot according to how warm you want the water to be.

    In addition to wading in the larger pool, you can venture further into the canyon to enjoy several smaller private pools and secluded miniature waterfalls.

    While you soak your worries away in the calm, tranquil waters, delight your senses with the lush green foliage and rugged, rocky terrain that surrounds you for a blissful, rejuvenating experience.

  2. Hit the hiking trails

    Thanks to the diverse, unique geography of the East Cape, hiking enthusiasts can take their pick from a number of popular trails to trek. Hike, bike, or go trail running on a path that suits your interests and skill level.

    • Cañón de La Zorra

      This 2.1-mile trail, just one hour outside of Cabo San Lucas, is considered a great option for beginners.
      Your invigorating walk begins at the base of the mountain and continues to the riverbank.
      At the conclusion of your leisurely hiking expedition through expansive desert terrain, you’ll reach a refreshing oasis complete with a crystal clear, freshwater pool fed by a lavish lagoon.
      Feeling the heat? Hikers are welcome to cool off with a dip in the beautiful pond, which looks like gleaming glass.
      Bright green foliage, fresh mountain air, and the relaxing sounds of the waterfall will make the perfect ending to your exploration.

    • Cañón de Costa Azul

      For hikers looking for more of a moderately challenging route, this trail extends 4.5 miles in length out and back, from start to finish.
      You’ll reach an elevation of 816 feet as you traverse the approximately two-hour trail.
      As one of the most popular hiking trails in the area, you can expect to encounter other people on your walk.
      This route starts at the southern point of the San Jose del Cabo hotel zone, following the flow of hills and plateaus of the Camino del Cañon del Costa Azul to the east.
      Once you reach the top of the hill, which serves as a lookout point, you’ll drink in spectacular views of the gorgeous Gulf of California.

  3. Go golfing

    At the Four Seasons Resort Los Cabos at Costa Palmas, you can play a round (or several) of golf on the property’s premier, 18-hole championship course. Designed by Robert Trent Jones II, the breathtaking scenery of the area is emphasized by the course’s innovative design.

    Sweeping fairways, meticulously manicured dunescapes, and lush, rolling greens playfully mimic the unique landscape of the East Cape.

    Take a private lesson to improve your skills or face off in a competitive game.

    This world-class course, which is perfect for players of all skill levels, offers golfers unbeatable views of both the serene stretches of desert and the sparkling ocean.

  4. Be a beachcomber

    Beachcombing, or “combing” the beach, is a great way to explore Los Cabos by land and find hidden treasures that have washed ashore.

    You can find anything from seashells, shark teeth, and sand dollars to fossils, minerals, or even precious stones like jade, agate, or jasper on a successful beach trekking expedition.

    The best time of day to head out on a beachcombing adventure is about 2-3 hours before low tide, or an hour afterwards. Be sure to bring a bucket or bag with you to tote your fascinating finds.

    Another prime beachcombing time is right after a big storm when strong winds and waves bring an abundance of interesting artifacts on land for you to discover.

  5. Try a camel safari

    Unlock the exotic enchantment of the Baja peninsula on a private camel safari tour. During the three-hour adventure, you’ll meet and climb aboard a camel.

    Get in tune with nature–including these magnificent, docile creatures–as you ride along the sands of the peaceful desert and beautiful beach.

    Watch the landscape transform from rocky solitude to pristine, sugar-white sands met by rolling waves that crash gently onto the shore.

    Throughout your expedition, you’ll become better acquainted with nature, immersing yourself in the sights and sounds of your picturesque setting while listening to the tour guide’s local expertise.

    When the day is done, your group can head back for a cozy campfire under a blanket of twinkling stars. Indulge in a fantastic feast especially prepared for your group or spice things up with a tequila tasting featuring a lineup of the best spirits in Los Cabos.

  6. Go off-roading on an ATV

    Head off the beaten path and into all the adventure the rustic outback of Los Cabos has to offer.

    Whether you go solo, with your crew, or under the tutelage of a guide who’s well-versed in the ins and outs of the region, you’re bound to have plenty of high-octane fun.

    Get face-to-face with an exhilarating adventure while taking in the stunning sights, including spotting fascinating wildlife and drinking in panoramic views of the desert, mountains, and oceans once you make it to the pinnacle of each hill.

    Wind down your heart-pumping excursion with a delicious buffet during a perfect sunset picnic.
