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.

Reviews

Our family of 6 had a wonderful time at gorgeous Villa Del Arco. I was very impressed by Destination Cabo. In particular, Bob was very informative and patient with all my questions. He secured us a great room at a great price, and he took care of all the details, making the trip planning much easier for me. It's very difficult to find accommodations in which our family can be together without having to book 2 separate rooms, so this hotel is a gem to me. It was a pleasure doing business. This is the first vacation ever, that I was not ready to end, and I cannot wait to return. Thank you Bob and thank you Villa Del Arco, for an outstanding vacation. Sincerely, JoAnn O. Chicago

We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed Villa del Arco. We were thrilled upon check-in at 1:00pm that our room was already cleaned and ready and had a beautiful view of the full ocean. The restaurant was open until 11pm and that was a pleasant surprise in that it allowed for greater flexibility. The rooms were spacious and the 3 bathrooms were wonderful for a family of 5, especially when the 3 children are teenagers. The washer/dryer amenity was a plus as we used it several times over the five days. The service was excellent and although the dinner menu was a little fancy for the kids, they made it work. After we went deep sea fishing and caught a mahi-mahi, the restaurant prepared and cooked or fish for us which was a nice treat. It made for a special dinner. The boys loved the taco bar and the quesadillas from the restaurant and actually ate lunch twice a day a few times. We went to the market and filled the fridge with Gatorade and snacks; that was a great suggestion! The boys used the kayaks provided by the resort and "surfed" for hours in the ocean. We met a nice couple at the pool who had only a master suite and shared with us that they paid the same amount for the all-inclusive option as we did for 5 "adults" in a master suite with an adjoining 1 bdroom suite, because they booked through a traditional method. I'm not sure we will ever want to stay in a regular hotel room ever again, or book with anyone besides you guys. Thank you for your help and we look forward to booking our yearly Cabo trip(s) with you again. Thanks again, Rebecca

Thank you so much for such an easy and worry free vacation on such short notice. The villa was beautiful and very comfortable. The additional amenities (USA phoneline & internet access with computer) kept us very accessible to all of our work responsibilities. Transportation was also effortless and ran exactly as planned. We had such a wonderful time and would have liked to stayed longer. The only thing we wish we could have organized in advance is grocery shopping and to have the groceries in the villa when we arrived. Thanks again, Shelley

Very nice place. Staff was able to repair the master bedroom toilet that had a sticky valve. Everything else was fabulous. The unit layout is perfect. On the extremely positive side, my business partner has a number of investment type properties and has been staying in different type properties around the world, and yours is the best he's ever been in and was quite impressed. Your Cabo guide is great and you were right on with the restaurant recommendations. We ate lunch at Tobascos everyday, although their prices have gone up a bit... Thanks again, and we hope to come back some day.

Been running since our return. Had a great time, did not buy a time share. Avoided that scene. Wonderful service from beginning to end. Would definitely use your services again. Thank you, Tracee

I wanted to say thank you for the special birthday wish (Cake, Wine & Bday cake made-up towels covered with confetti) when we arrived at the hotel. I assume you were behind that and had called ahead to let the staff know of my special occasion. I didn't realize until we got to the room (with King bed as requested) why the front desk staff were talking and surprised at how young I looked for 50 even though I had said nothing upon check-in about my birthday!! :) Btw, my brother who didn't book through you got a room with two queens on the 3rd level backside near where they are rebuilding the new restaurant at the hotel. Very noisy!! Thank you!! Sabrina and I will certainly use your services again on our next trip to Cabo. All the best, Tom

Thanks for everything. I've been to Cabo many times but this was one of our best vacations. Villa Del Arco was great - gorgeous accommodations, friendly staff, and great food. Transportation was easy. I also appreciated you working with me on very late notice to set up our ride. I will be in touch regarding future vacations.

I just wanted to take a minute to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent Cabo vacation. The Villa del Arco was just a fantastic place to get away and enjoy the awesome weather that is Cabo San Lucas. More importantly, I would like to thank you for the professional way in which you handled all of the details of this trip to make it as hassle-free as possible. Having been in the vacation reservation industry for several years, I can appreciate how many details need to be addressed to make a trip and stay a great experience. All of the information and coordination you provided was excellent. I especially appreciated the recommendations of several outstanding restaurants that turned out to be the best finds of the trip. This also applies to the trip my son made to Cabo a few weeks before. He had never been to Cabo and absolutely loved everything about it. For a relatively inexperienced traveler, you made his trip one that he will remember for a lifetime. Again, thank you for doing an outstanding job and providing a service that is second to none. I will certainly be a repeat customer. Sincerely, Wayne Hoover Lexington, KY

I Loved It!! All of the staff is amazing there. Two of my waiters by the pool were Juan and Raymundo and they were great, I loved water aerobics everyday with Hugo and the entire entertainment staff at night was funny and very enjoyable!! Also, Bagous, the cook at the Japanese restaurant was so good! I had such a good time and enjoyed Cabo so much I am now looking to relocate there! Thank you for your response, I wanted to make sure everyone got the credit they deserve!! Best Regards, Amanda
