Cabo San Lucas Travel Guides

One of Mexico’s top vacation destinations, Cabo San Lucas is located in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, has a permanent population of over 80,000 and welcomes nearly 2 million visitors per year. Known for its beautiful beaches, ocean-side resorts, amazing aquatic animals and other wildlife, Cabo San Lucas shares the 19-mile Los Cabos Corridor with the resort city San José del Cabo.

Where to Stay

Hotels in Cabo San Lucas are about as varied as you can imagine, with one for virtually every taste and every budget — from simple hotels where you can rest your head to full-service resorts. There are four different vacation areas in the Los Cabos region, which encompasses Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, with the Los Cabos Corridor in between. San José is at the north end of the Corridor and is generally quieter than San Lucas. The Corridor itself, between the two cities, has a number of resorts that offer numerous amenities, so you’ll be sure to find one that suits your style and requirements. Medano Beach is on San Lucas Bay and has hotels within walking distance to downtown areas, along with some of the best beaches in Cabo. Land’s End is your fourth choice, at the tip of the Baja Peninsula in San Lucas, featuring hotels that are situated right on the Pacific Ocean.


The sixth-busiest airport in Mexico, Los Cabos International Airport is located at San José del Cabo in Baja California Sur, Mexico, and serves nearly 5 million passengers per year. Los Cabos International Airport underwent a major redesign in 1997, led by Mexican architect and great-grandson of Queen Isabella II of Spain, Manuel De Santiago-de Borbón González Bravo. The second airport in the area is the much smaller Cabo San Lucas International Airport, which recently had its runway lengthened to 7,000 feet. It serves approximately 1,200 passengers per year.

Top Things to Do

Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of water-related activities in beautiful, beachy Cabo. In addition to just hanging out on the sand and breathing in the ocean air, you can go whale and dolphin watching, charter a cruise on a private yacht or take a glass-bottom kayak to go snorkeling. Some of the top outdoors tourist destinations are El Arco de Cabo San Lucas (at Land’s End), Bay of Cabo San Lucas and Mt. Solmar. You have your choice of sight-seeing tours, or you can grab a taxi or shuttle to shop, dine or visit one or more of Cabo San Lucas’ museums and art galleries. If nightlife is your thing, then you’ll be excited to choose from a huge number of restaurants, bars and clubs!
