With a diverse landscape that varies from desert settings to vibrant greenery and beautiful ocean views, the scenery you’ll find on a hike in Cabo is unlike any other.
Before you embark on your hike, make sure you bring the proper items along with you so that you are prepared. A hiking backpack with plenty of food and water is essential, as well as a first-aid kit.
