Add an element of adventure to your trip to Cabo when you get out and explore some of the area’s land formations beyond the serene white sand beaches. From adrenaline-inducing sand dunes to the dramatic Sierra de la Laguna Mountains to unique rock formations, there are plenty of options for getting active in the outdoor playground of Cabo. One such place to do so is at Mt Solmar in Cabo San Lucas.
An Invigorating Hiking Experience in Mount Solmar in Cabo
Towering over the beautiful Divorce Beach are dramatic rock formations that include Mt Solmar in Cabo San Lucas. As some assert that this is located on private property, be sure to go through the correct channels before enjoying this hike. The land is claimed by a man by the name of Enrique, who is also the owner of the dog shelter located at the mountain’s base. For a donation, Enrique allows visitors to pass through the gate that leads to the trail and leads guided hikes to the mountain’s peak.
Though the hike isn’t long in distance, the elevation gain and steep areas of rock scrambling do provide some challenges. With a good pair of hiking shoes and water, hikers of decent physical shape can take on this trek. Once you reach the top, you are rewarded with sweeping views of the surrounding area. Cabo City, Cabo Bay, Land’s End, Medano Beach, Divorce Beach, Lover’s Beach, Solmar Beach, the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean all stretch out before you as a detailed painted canvas. Spend some time at the peak soaking in the views and relishing in the reward for your efforts. Though there is a way to reach Divorce Beach from the peak, this route is not included in Enrique’s tour. However, you will enjoy a different route on the return trip that follows a gentler slope.
From the peak of Mount Solmar in Cabo, you may notice a couple of beaches that are set off Cabo’s mainland, such as Divorce Beach and Lover’s Beach. To explore these beautiful stretches of sand, it is possible to catch a boat charter or water taxi from the marina or from Medano Beach. There are so many natural wonders to explore during your getaway to Cabo!
