Home to the glamorous resort cities of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, and boasting miles of sand and surf, Los Cabos is the star attraction of Mexico's Baja California peninsula. Tempting though it may be to spend your entire vacation lounging by the water, cocktail in hand, the region offers many worthwhile day trips. Here are our picks for the best.  

Bay of Cabo — around Los Cabos
The most atmospheric way to explore the Bay of Cabo is from the water; boat cruises are among the most popular tours in Los Cabos. Set sail on a catamaran and admire landmarks such as The Arch, Lover’s Beach, and Pelican Rock; take a dolphin and whale-watching cruise along the coast; or enjoy a romantic sunset cruise.

Fox Canyon — 39 miles (63 km) north
The rugged landscapes of the Fox Canyon (Cañón de la Zorra) and the surrounding Baja desert offer a spectacular backdrop for outdoor activities. Venture off-road on a 4x4 or ATV tour, mount up for a camel safari, or take a hike through the canyon. Stop en route to visit the colonial town of Santiago. 

Todos Santos — 66 miles (106 km) northwest
Bohemian Todos Santos, one of the most interesting towns along the Baja Peninsula, is the former home of artists like Charles Stewart and Gabo. After browsing indie galleries, antiques stores, crafts markets, and cafes, be sure to pay a visit to the Hotel California, which locals claim inspired the eponymous hit song by the Eagles. 

Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park — 66 miles (107 km) northeast
Teeming with exotic fish, colorful coral, and marine life, the Cabo Pulmo National Marine Park is the perfect destination for a snorkeling tour. Highlights include Mermaids Beach and the Navajas reef, and common sightings include sea lions, devil rays, and sea turtles.

Fox Canyon — 39 miles (63 m) north
The rugged landscapes of the Fox Canyon (Cañón de la Zorra) and the surrounding Baja desert offer a spectacular backdrop for outdoor activities. Venture off-road on a 4x4 or ATV tour, mount up for a camel safari, or take a hike through the canyon. Stop en route to visit the colonial town of Santiago. 

La Paz — 116 miles (186 km) northwest
La Paz, the capital of Baja California Sur, is known for its scenic seafront promenade and beautiful beaches. It’s also a great cultural destination, where you can visit Baja’s oldest cathedral, learn about the region’s history at the anthropology museum, and shop for traditional Mexican handicrafts.
