Destination Guide : Los Cabos, Mexico

Los Cabos is located at the tip of Baja California.  Usually 2-4 hours nonstop flight from many US West Coast cities, making it a very popular destination for quick getaways, destination weddings, and those with small children who may not do well on long flights.  Famous for the fine beaches, world class dining options, sumptuous resorts, oceanfront golf courses, and some of the best sport fishing.

The region is made up of two towns.  Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo…and between the two towns lie the Corridor.  If you like to have the nightlife, bars, shopping, and must have a beach, San Lucas is for you.   If you like to be near a town, but less action and more charming with Mexican flavor… San Jose is perfect.  If you like to be secluded from both towns, and enjoy an all-inclusive resort experience, the Corridor has many options.  You can still get to both towns with a short cab ride.

Best time to go:  Dec to May.   It’s a bit humid in the summer.  Fall has great travel deals but may have some tropical storms and rain.   Dec to April is great for sport fishing and some of the best whale watching in the world.   Weather is pleasant year-round with average temperatures around 75F.


Activities:  As popularity of Los Cabos as a destination grows, so are the activities offered.  Getting on the boat to El Arco, the arch rock, is a must do. You can combine it with a snorkeling or scuba diving trip. Sport fishing is available during season, of course.  A real thrill is swimming with whale sharks!   Go ride horses and even camels if you like something different.  ATV, and electric bike tours are great fun and a great way to get a panoramic view of the area; plus, it includes a salsa making class and an authentic taco lunch.  You can also go zip lining, kiss some dolphins, play a round or two of golf or do nothing but relax and enjoy a drink poolside.

Resorts:  They offer adults only resorts as well as family friendly resorts.  There are many all-inclusive resort options to choose from.  Though many are beachfront, not all are located on a safe swimming beach due to strong currents.  But they will have plenty of pools for you to enjoy.  A few select resorts have great views of the sun rising from the Sea of Cortez AND the sun setting into the Pacific Ocean!

Other thoughts:  I know some recent news reports have put Mexico in a bad light.  Some people don’t feel safe.  But I don’t think there are many cities exclusive to crimes.   I felt safe traveling there, just as my other trips to Cancun and Puerto Vallarta.  The cruise lines and the new hotels like Four Seasons, Ritz Carlton, and Hyatt, are putting pressure to tighten their security in the city.  Los Cabos’ no. 1 industry is tourism. They want to and will make sure travelers are happy and ensure they are safe.  It’s an easy destination for some sun and fun!

There are cruise lines that make port stop at Los Cabos.  If you’ve been there before and just wanting to hang out at a nice resort for the day, you can buy day passes.  Most of my clients enjoy a getaway of at least 3 or 4 nights stay.  But with so many (and even more) resorts being built, I can help you pick the perfect spot for your next vacation!
