Four Family-Friendly Activities in Los Cabos

Four Family-Friendly Activities in Los Cabos

For a vacation destination to be considered world-class, it must offer a wide-ranging menu of age-appropriate, family-friendly activities and adventures. This is especially true in the summer months, when kids are off from school. 

When it comes lots of fun for family members of all ages, Los Cabos delivers on all counts. Here’s added incentive: Cabo Adventures, one of the destination’s premier outfitters, deeply discounts its most popular outings during the summer months. 

Here’s a review of the company’s top four tours. 

  1. Dolphin Signature Swim

Here’s a chance for children (minimum age 4 years old) and parents alike to swim with and learn about Pacific Bottlenose Dolphins, ranked among the most highly intelligent mammals in the sea. Your day begins with a hotel pick-up and arrival at one of the outfitter’s American Humane Certified Dolphin Centers. Marine mammal specialists share their knowledge about these friendly creatures and how to properly interact and communicate with them. Then it’s time for a 40-minute dolphin encounter in a crystal-clear saltwater pool. Participants can play, ride, hug, kiss, and swim with the dolphins. Small group interactions are a key feature of the Dolphin Signature Swim program. An unforgettable experience for the entire family. 

  1. Combo: Camels + ATV + Lunch

Discover the Baja outback by experiencing three of Cabo Adventures’ top tours on a four-hour combo adventure. The fun begins with a visit to Tierra Sagrada Ranch, an ‘eco farm’ where participants can join an interactive workshop to learn about the region’s sustainability and conservation efforts. Next, take in views of the Pacific Ocean from a different angle--atop a camel’s back. It’s a perfect photo opportunity for a group keepsake. Continue the adventure by zipping across the sandy planes of the Baja desert in a Polaris ATV, taking in canyon views from cactus-studded trails that weave through mountain foothills. With an expert local guide and head-to-toe protective gear, this activity is safe for youngsters (minimum age is 8 years old) and adults. Cap off this unique combo tour with a tequila tasting at an oceanfront restaurant, where imbibers can learn more about this uniquely Mexican spirit.  

  1. Luxury Two-Bay Snorkel

Immerse yourself in Cabo’s rich underwater world at two of the finest snorkeling spots in the Sea of Cortez: Chileno Bay and Santa Maria Beach. Offering calm, crystal-clear waters, this pair of pristine coves shelters a wide array of colorful fish and tropical marine life. The transportation? A luxury French-made catamaran. Take in the beauty of the iconic sea arch—Los Arcos—at Land’s End before docking on the sandy beaches at both coves. The four-hour tour includes a delicious lunch and unlimited open bar. Sea scooters are available for those who want to ‘power snorkel’ the coral reefs. Minimum age: 5 years old. Tour is subject to change due to weather and sea conditions.

  1. Cabo Luxury Sunset Sailing

No trip to Los Cabos is complete without a relaxing late afternoon cruise to witness a spectacular sunset outlined by the towering rock pinnacles and the famous sea arch at Land’s End. Step into luxury when you board one of Cabo Adventures’ fully equipped, French-made sailboats. Receive a tall glass of sparkling wine and a friendly greeting from the captain and crew, who invite guests to lie back on the soft deck cushions while the yacht cruises along the beautiful Cabo coastline. A perfect evening for couples, honeymooners, or small groups of close friends. Maximum capacity for the 2.5-hour sailboat tour, which includes premium open bar and gourmet hors d’oeuvres, is 16 passengers. Minimum age is 8 years old.
