Top Activities for Teens in Los Cabos Mexico

Last week, our company president, Don Hirschaut, hosted a bunch of his kids’ teen friends for an unforgettable summer vacation in Los Cabos. What is there to do with an energetic group of teenagers in Baja? Plenty, it seems! Here, he shares some of their favorite activities and tours:

Zip Line Adventure in Cabo
Zip Line Adventures are an unforgettable way to experience the natural beauty of Los Cabos - and are a sure hit with the teens

Cabo Adventures – Zip Line Experience: This was our 5th Zip Line Experience with Cabo Adventures, and we were not let down! Starting early to take advantage of the cool of the morning, our group passed through the small town of Miraflores during the beginning of their annual Cactus Flower (Pitaya) festival. Arriving at base camp, we were greeted by the Cabo Adventures staff. Our tour leader was very experienced and funny! He had us laughing as we geared up and throughout our orientation. Next ,we jumped up into the special 4WD truck to ride to our starting point. From this point, it was all down hill! Following our amazing zip, climb, rappel, commando bridge, and wire bridge thrills, we made it back to base camp to enjoy refreshing beverages, fresh fruit, chips and salsa. Exiting Miraflores, we noticed young children selling fresh cactus fruit, so we stopped and bought a bag. What a yummy treat! The kids love it! More info:  Zip Line Adventures…

Parasailing over Cabo San Lucas Bay
Parasailing over Cabo San Lucas Bay

Cabo Expeditions Parasailing – This excursion was amazing! The views of the arch at Land’s End were stunning. The staff of Cabo Expeditions are professionals, and they made sure our tour was safe and relaxing. Our family with 4 teens loved flying high over the Bay of Cabo San Lucas. This tour is easy, and children as young as 6 can participate in tandem with an adult. Be sure to bring your camera for some incredible photo ops! We highly recommend using Cabo Expeditions as you get to board the parasailing boat from the dock at the Cabo San Lucas marina. This is a much safer way to start and end the tour than catching a small water taxi from the beach which then shuttles you out to the parasail boat. Additionally, Cabo Expeditions provided bottled water and a dedicated photographer who sold us all his images on a CD at a very reasonable price. Thumbs up!

Banana Boat tour in Cabo San Lucas
Banana boats are a thrill a minute, and an exciting way to see the sights in Cabo San Lucas

Banana Boat Excursion – This was an excellent excursion for teens! This inexpensive activity begins at Médano Beach and circles the entire bay of Cabo San Lucas. With room for up to 8 persons, our group of 6 teens loved bouncing along, as well as taking a spill into the bay at the end of the tour. With a time out near the arch, this excursion is all about speed and getting wet! More water activities in Los Cabos…

Surfing lessons in Los Cabos Mexico
With surf lessons in Los Cabos, even newbies can catch a wave

High Tide Los Cabos Surfing – We surfed Zippers, one of Cabo’s most famous surf breaks, and had a blast with High Tide Tours. This was our first surfing excursion and we had our doubts about getting up, however the staff at High Tide Tours were amazing and we all were able to get up and enjoy riding waves with just a little practice. The guides really knew how to get us in the right position, and were able to help us stand up within minutes of paddling out to the best waves. High Tide provided rash guards and soft surfboards with bottled water and beach chairs for our comfort. The van ride was comfortable and getting to Costa Azul (Zippers) was quick. This tour is the perfect way to experience success on a surfboard for anyone, young and old. More Info: Surfing Lessons with High Tide Los Cabos

Bungee jumping in Los Cabos Mexico
Bungee jumping in Los Cabos is a pure adrenaline rush

Wild Canyon Giant Swing and Bungee – Our group of 5 teenagers came to the Wild Canyon looking for adventure. We had done the zip lines several times in the past and elected to try the bungee and giant swing this time. We started early at 9am to take advantage of the cooler morning. The staff of Wild Canyon were very friendly and professional. The facility was clean and their equipment was excellent. Our guide Miguel took us out to the gondola and set everything up for us using a series of redundant safety measures. They also had two photographers shooting our activity from different angles. Once we were set and ready the actual giant swing was amazing! The initial moment of drop was breathless with zero gravity for the first few seconds of the ride. Building up momentum and g-force, we howled with glee! Lastly one person from our group elected to go for the bungee jump and she leaped head first with a graceful dive into the canyon below. Following her drop and return to the gondola, she was all smiles! We highly recommend the giant swing and bungee for all adrenaline junkies. These activities are not for the faint of heart, however they are supervised by professionals who follow standard safety protocols. Thumbs Up Wild Canyon, we will be back soon!

Offroad adventures in Cabo
Experience the desert outback with an offroad excursion in Los Cabos

Off-Road Adventure – What a blast! We joined the team of Xtreme Adventures for an off-road adventure with the teens. This 4WD high speed adventure is not for the faint of heart. Starting at El Migrino beach we followed our guide via state-of-the-art Polaris 4X4 ATV. Equipped with full-face helmets, 3-point safety harness and roll bars, this tour took us across challenging desert and beach terrain. While not a race, there were many technical drops and turns sure to give any driver a thrill. We stopped 4 times along the way to take a break and change up our teenage drivers. What fun! Los Cabos offers a number of fantastic off-road adventures sure to be a highlight of your trip. More Info: Off-Road Adventures in Los Cabos

Diving is a great way to experience the beautiful waters and marine life of Los Cabos

Manta Diving – Where else can you travel 5 minutes by boat and dive a world-class submarine canyon? As an experienced diver, I liked the service I received from Manta Divers. Their equipment was in good condition and they go to the best dive sites on a consistent basis. My family had the opportunity to dive Pelican rock and the Point, both local dives and we are already planning on returning for more dives. One of the teens is a certified diver and came with us. You can be certified to dive (junior diver) at the age of 12. The water was warm and the marine life was abundant. I would recommend a small dive light, as there were lots of holes and cracks worth inspecting. We saw numerous schools of fish, eels, rays and invertebrates. More Info: Manta Diving
