Things to Do in Los Cabos

Things to Do in Los Cabos
Los Cabos, located at the southernmost tip of Baja California in Mexico, is a popular stopover destination for cruise ships and offers extensive vacation accommodations. It is also a popular destination for a variety of adventure sports and exciting outdoor activities.

ABY Charter Fishing

Los Cabos is one of the world's premier destinations for sport fishing, including wahoo, marlin and sailfish. With nine different boats to choose from, you can be part of a larger group or book your own private fishing outing. Experienced captains guide you to where the fish are biting, year-round. Founded in 1991, ABY represents a different concept in charter fishing, as each of its captains owns and operates his own boat, booked by ABY under the guidance of Senor Helio Garcia, a federally certified tour guide. All the necessary equipment is provided, but there are small extra fees for live bait and for your required fishing license.

Cabo Rey Parasailing

Cabo Rey's Sky King Parasailing has been helping people get a bird's-eye view of Mexico for more than 40 years, pioneering the sport in Acapulco in the 1960s. Conveniently located in the tourist quarter by the cruise ship docks, Cabo Rey Parasailing offers flights every day, for one or two people, letting you soar beneath a parachute up to 600 feet above the water, as a speed boat pulls you along. This is a popular activity in many Mexican tourist destinations, but Los Cabos' Arch at Land's End offers a spectacular vista from the sky.

Cabo Sky Tours

Another excellent way to soar over Los Cabos is on an ultralight plane. The plane, manufactured in France by Cosmos-La Mouette, is small, gas-powered and surprisingly slow by comparison to most planes. Special rates are available for those specifically interested in aerial photography. The pilot, Ernesto Magaña, was the first individual in Mexico to be licensed to fly an ultralight plane, and he has been doing so for more than 25 years. Several different tour options are available, from 10 minutes to an hour in the air, soaring up to 2,000 feet above Los Cabos.
