Zip Line and Canopy Tours in Cabo San Lucas

When people plan a trip to Cabo San Lucas, they are most likely dreaming of white sandy beaches, margaritas, snorkeling, fishing, nightlife, and many more activities by the sea. But, the most exciting adventures are just a short shuttle away. Zip line tours in Cabo San Lucas are quickly becoming the most popular activity during people’s Mexico getaway. Why spend all seven days lounging in the same chair when you can head out for an adrenaline rush racing down zip lines high above Baja’s valleys? The entire family will love the Cabo San Lucas canopy zip line adventure and you will return home with some of the best memories of your Mexico vacation.

What to expect

Fun, excitement, beautiful views of the landscape, and a great time. Zip line and canopy tours through Baja Sur will get your blood pumping and provide a lot of fun at the same time. No matter what tour operator you choose, they will pick you up at your resort and take you out to where the rivers are flowing in Baja. Generally, it will be a 1-2 hour drive and once you arrive they will give you a short educational course to teach you the ropes... literally. Every canyon canopy tour is different and some will be all zip lines, some will have several ropes obstacles along the way, and one even has a giant bungee jump for the thrill seekers in the group.Throw your harnesses on, load up on the trucks, and climb to the top of where the zip line course begins.

The employees are all very well trained and certified to guide you through the course while keeping everyone safe. They are professionals, so although they may perform some tricks to please the crowed, do not try to do them yourself. The group will work their way down the zip lines and come back out by the headquarters where you can relax for a second and have a refreshment and some snacks before heading back to your resort pool. From the time you leave your resort until the time you return, the approximately 5 hour trip will be filled with fun.

Although several parts of the tour can be strenuous, and you will probably break a sweat, almost everyone can have a great time on a zip line course in Cabo. From 10 year old kids to 60 year old grandparents, everyone will enjoy the challenge and adrenaline rush of flying down a zip line at speeds up to 60mph. For just under $90 on average, you will have a day filled with adventure and get to experience a completely different side of Los Cabos that you may not have known existed.

What to bring

This is important to consider because just packing a bikini and board shorts won’t cut it on this tour. You will need to bring the following items, and a few are just for good measure:

  • Close toed shoes - Good tennis shoes or hiking boots are preferable.
  • Long pants that cover your entire leg.
  • Empty your pockets before the tour.
  • Glasses - If you need to wear glasses, be sure you have a strap to secure them when you are zip lining.
  • Sunscreen - Lather up before the adventure and probably 1-2 more times during the trip; Cabo has a very hot sun.
  • Insect Repellent - If bugs love your blood, be sure to spray your body before venturing into the Baja Sur jungle.
  • Camera - Some tours will require you to leave your camera behind at base camp and will provide a professional photographer. Check in advance if you should bring your own camera.
  • Cash - You will have an option of buying souvenirs, photos, and additional snacks at the end so do not forget to bring some pesos along.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is it safe? Yes! All of the tour operators have extensive experience and are certified to provide you with a safe yet thrilling adventure. There are several safety measures taken to ensure that no one gets hurt during the tour. Only the highest quality gear is used and you are securely fastened in using a rock climbing harness to prevent any accidents from happening.
  • What happens if I let go of the zip line? By letting go of the zip line you are essentially releasing the hand that was controlling the direction your body was pointing (forward). So the worst thing that can happen is that you spin around in circles a bit, but even that probably won’t happen unless you try to on purpose. You are safely secured to two zip lines whether or not you are holding on.
  • What is the minimum age requirement or age limit? Kids ages 8 and up can go on the canyon canopy tours but double check with your operator because some have a height requirement. As long as you’re still moving around okay, there is not age limit for flying down zip lines in Cabo.
  • What is the weight limit for the tours? The professional equipment provided can accommodate up to 250 or 300 pounds maximum for the zip line tours.
  • Do they provide snacks and water? All of the tours will have several items included in the price such as water, chips, sandwiches, and even a tequila tasting sometimes (at the end of course).
  • Do I need to be in top physical shape for the tour? You don’t need to be an olympic athlete, but you should be able to easily move around without getting exhausted easily. Some of the zip line courses can be strenuous, but 8 year old kids can do it just fine so that should be a good measure of whether or not you can.

We really enjoyed our visit and the resort was very clean and the proximity to the marina and downtown was spectacular.

Just returned home last night and wanted to let you know that all was wonderful! The resort was beautiful and your place was so nice and had everything that we needed (and more!). We ended up not doing the AI but did our shopping at WalMart to stock up on the seafood! We followed your recommendations regarding restaurants and had some great meals in town. The whales also cooperated and they put on quite the show (we actually could pick what group to actually follow as there were multiple pods!) All and all a great vacation and hope to do it again. Thanks again.

We had a wonderful time, Villa Del Arco is an awesome place great for children, my 1 year old granddaughter loved the water fountain pool. The 1 & 2 bedroom suites were very nice and spacious, both had great balconies with an ocean view. I would highly recommend travelers try some of the restaurants you suggested, we did and were very pleased. Everything was perfect from the ground transportation to and from the airport along with Villa Del Arco, we could not have gotten a better deal. Thanks for all of your help Bob.

Hi bob. We had a wonderful time. I was a bit skeptical at first when I found you website that somehow I was going to get scammed. Obviously we did not. I would absolutely 100% recommend destination vacations based on my experience We did take the tour but were not prepared to invest. I did conclude that I would like to take advantage of their introductory package but am unable to find the person to whom I spoke. Perhaps with some more digging I can find that person. I believe the gals name was Donna to whom I last spoke and gave me the intro package offer. They only allowed me to take a picture of it. I would have some more questions before I could invest for sure or not Thanks

Thanks for taking the time to come to La Gringa marina to meet us before our sunset cruise! We had a wonderful time in Cabo with our family. The penthouse suite at Villa Del Arco was beautiful. We had our New Years Eve dinner there, steaks on the grill and could see the fireworks from our room. It was great to have a hot tub right there. We ate most of our lunches at the Buccaneer and went into town for dinner. Your recommendations were helpful. The kids enjoyed the kayaks and jet skis. We appreciate all your help in arranging transfers and the sunset cruise. It was a very enjoyable trip for our family. Hope to see you again sometime.

Great job! The accommodations were spectacular and the welcome basket a nice touch. We had special turn down service each night and one night there was a complimentary bubble bath turn down service. Everyone at Los Arcos was wonderful and the entire trip went off without a hitch! Thank you again.

I just wanted to drop you a quick email to let you know we had a wonderful time in Cabo. Villa Del Arco was beautiful and we could not have asked for a better room or room location. I also wanted to thank you for quickly taking care of the small snag for us at check in so quickly. I was starting to sweat it but it turned out seamless. We are interested in maybe staying at the Villa Group hotel in Cancun next year during Christmas break. Would you be able to help us with those reservations? Laurie

Bob I just wanted to thank you for all the help you provided us to make our vacation to Cabo a great one. We went to Peacocks, Ediths, La Dolce, Sancho panza and loved them all. All your recommendations were right on. We loved our accomodations and the great location to the beach and pool. My husband took a course there which he is allowed to write off. Could you send me a receipt for the hotel as well as a receipt from the transportation? Once again,thanks Carla

Thank you Bob for taking care of us. Our condo was beautiful and the service was over the top. We love the location and walked to town one to three times a day. We felt very safe in Cabo and Estancia. It was a great vacation and you really helped make that happen. Hope to do business again in the future -Ann
