In Cabo San Lucas, a stroll along the shore is undoubtedly wonderful, but a hike in the desert is just as incredible. In wintertime, when temperatures are pleasant in the 70s, it is the perfect time to go hiking in the desert. Baja California Sur can be hiked in the summer, although the ideal time to go is early in the morning. Hiking alone can be unsafe, so please organize a trip with other seasoned hikers and get in touch with a hiking agency to arrange for a guided tour.
A trip through the desert will give you the chance to see jack rabbits and other local fauna up close in addition to the stunning rock formations and plants found there. Wear leather boots and make a little noise as you walk because rattlesnakes are not uncommon. Sunscreen, water, and a hat are all necessary.
