Take a look at these desert tours in Cabo San Lucas that you can enjoy anytime of the year.
Touring Cabo’s Desert by ATV
All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV) tours have become quite popular in the travel and tourism industry as a whole, but there are few places in Mexico, or the world, which are as perfectly suited for these hardy vehicles as Cabo San Lucas. The rugged beauty of this region is famous, and ATV’s make short work of rocky desert ground and sandy beaches. When you sign up to one of these adventures you will, of course, be given proper safety equipment, but we still recommend that you don’t wear your very best clothes as they are likely to become covered in dirt, dust and sweat over the course of the day.
Camels! Yes, Camels!
You might think that you need to be in the Arabian Desert in order to experience a ride on camel back, but this is not the case. You can easily find companies who will let you tour the desert and beaches of Cabo San Lucas on the back of a camel; and you will get many opportunities to take photos while you do so. This is quite a relaxed tour, and the pace is gentle. You’ll see the Sierra Madre Mountains, the Ocean, and the canyons of Cabo with plenty of time to see the flora and fauna which is native to the area.
Touring Cabo’s Desert on Horseback
Horseback tours are perennial favourites at any beach destination across the world, and Cabo San Lucas is no different. If you have ever wanted to ride one of these intensely beautiful, graceful, and powerful animals down a stunning beach as the waves lap the sand then this could be your chance! On these tours you will have professional guides, so there’s no need to worry if you’re not an equestrian at home; the horses will also have been chosen for their calm and gentle nature to make them suitable for less confident riders, too. The sea breeze, warm sunshine, and lapping waves make this a relaxing, and even spiritual experience.
So, be sure to experience one of these tours on your next visit to Cabo San Lucas.
