Meet a driver at your Cabo San Lucas hotel at a departure time that suits your schedule, then travel to a ranch that’s 10 miles (16 km) north of the city. Meet a guide and your horse for the day, and swing up into the saddle for the trip into the desert.
The first part of the trail ride passes through Baja’s majestic desert, so this is the perfect time to spot native plants and wildlife, including many kinds of cactus.
When you arrive at the Pacific coast, turn onto the sand to ride for the rest of your tour—enjoy the cool sea breeze as you ride, and watch for marine wildlife in the ocean. Loop back to the starting point at the ranch, where you’ll say goodbye to the horse, then begin the return trip to Cabo San Lucas.
