Things To Do In The Tourist Corridor
Let’s get real. There’s probably not a more entertaining, exciting band of land than the span known in Los Cabos as the Tourist Corridor: the 20- mile stretch that connects San Jose del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas. The area is completely loaded and chock full of things to do, whether you want to be active or kick back and relax. For starters on the laid- back side, some luxury resorts host famous golf courses on-site to brush up your game. Try the Cabo del Sol Desert Course, designed by famous architect Tom Weiskopf, which presents fabulous views of the Sea of Cortez and Baja landscape. Many hotels provide a list of activities that center around the beaches such as snorkeling, diving and swimming at the Blue Flag– certified safety beaches at Chileno Bay. Other attractions inland include a must-stop visit near Wild Canyon Adventures to get the adrenaline flowing with bungee jumping, zip-lining or holding on to a giant swing for a near-death experience you can always go home from and tell the story afterward. Soft exploration opportunity also abounds in the form of shopping at chi-chi boutiques mixed with genuine Mexican tiendas and sampling the myriad restaurants that invite the visitor to come wander and enjoy the tastes of local fare. When traveling to or from the airport, make sure you plan a few hours to stop along the corridor to sample the fantastic, and yet memorable mini-adventures along the way.
