There are a lot of reasons for Los Cabos becoming the super popular vacation destination that it is today.
Incredible beaches, luxurious all-inclusive resorts, vibrant nightlife, fascinating culture, and stunning landscapes all contribute to making Los Cabos an ideal vacation destination for just about anyone.
But it is those stunning landscapes that are the reason for Los Cabos growing popular for one specific exciting tourism trend, and that is sport and adventure tourism.
Sport And Adventure In Los Cabos
The recent arrival of the Ironman 70.3 competition is proof that Los Cabos is the perfect destination for outdoor sport and adventure.
Not only is it the diverse landscapes and amazing weather that attract event organizers to the destination, but the location.
As one official of the Mexican Triathlon Federation, Edgar Rodriguez, pointed out, “In the case of Los Cabos, it is very close to the United States, which makes many foreigners go down to compete in Los Cabos, and there are also many foreigners living there from the United States.”
Los Cabos – Not Just A Place To Attend Sporting Events
More and more outdoor sporting events like the Ironman competition, the Los Cabos Open of Surf, and various fishing competitions are being held in Los Cabos.
But the destination isn’t just a place to attend sporting events but to get out and have your own active adventures too.
With the diversity of the landscape, which includes desert, mountains, and sea, there are endless possibilities that fall into four different general categories.

Exploring The Diverse Terrain
The diverse terrain in the region is one of the things that makes the destination so popular among outdoor and adventure lovers because there are so many ways to explore it.
ATV tours, hiking, and mountain biking will allow you to traverse the different landscapes and see a part of Los Cabos that is far different from the bustling tourist areas.
You can even explore the land by horseback or camel for a truly unique adventure.
Beneath The Deep Blue Sea
The Sea of Cortez was once described by Jacques Cousteau as “the world’s aquarium” due to the abundance of sea life.
Add to that the fact that the Sea of Cortez meets the Pacific Ocean in Cabo San Lucas, and you can see why adventurers might want to explore the deep blue sea.
And there are plenty of snorkeling and diving tours that will allow you to do just that.

For those who really like to get the adrenaline rushing, there are a few thrill-seeking activities to partake in when visiting Los Cabos.
At Wild Canyon Adventure Park, you can zipline high above canyons; bungee jump from 300 feet in the air, or ATV across a suspension bridge.
You can even free-fall 240 feet in a swing if you really want to get your adrenaline pumping.
