Rent a powerful ATV or UTV to ride off road. The terrain of Los Cabos is quite varied, and riding a UTV off road is quite an adventure in Los Cabos. However, you can get the most fun experience while driving your ride on the coast itself. Drive along the waterline, speed through the sands and feel the bumps underneath your ride’s tires. The beautiful views of the ocean make the ride more pleasurable, and that’s why it is one of the must try adventure activity while you are here.
