Los Cabos Travel Tips

Traveling down to the tip of the Baja Peninsula you will find an area of Mexico that has tranquil beaches, friendly locals, and attractions to please everyone.

Los Cabos is essentially made up of two towns, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Both are unique and entertaining in their own ways.

San Jose del Cabo has a calm atmosphere and a style of Mexico’s older times.

Not only does it have stunning beaches; there are delicious eateries, art galleries and a peaceful estuary.

Those looking for a low-key destination full of beauty and nature will fall in love with San Jose del Cabo.

Cabo San Lucas is a much livelier town compared to its sister, San Jose del Cabo.

Mostly known for its vivacious nightlife, young adults flock here to visit the clubs and local bars. There are a number of other attractions including a large marina, water sports, gardens and a beautiful coastline.

There are 20 miles of pristine shoreline between the two main towns. Nature lovers will enjoy the flora and fauna of the area, along with the crystal blue waters of the Sea of Cortes. Secluded coves and rugged rocky cliffs make for a unique area that is encompassed by mountains and desert vistas.

The East Cape of Los Cabos is a long strand of coastline, almost 100 miles, that mainly consists of undeveloped desert.

Located within this area are two towns, Buena Vista and Los Barriles. Both communities attract tourists and fishermen alike. Windsurfers are also keen on the area, making it the most popular area for windsurfing in Los Cabos.

The small town of Cabo Pulmo also sits along the East Cape and is home to a colorful coral reef, very inviting for divers and snorkelers.

The Pacific coast of Los Cabos is notorious for large ocean swells and heavy surf. The current from California keeps water temperatures low but it slowly rises as the water moves southward. Summer and autumn seasons bring in tropical storms, strong winds, and torrential rains.

There is a wide array of plant life throughout Los Cabos. In the southern area, desert plants such as mesquite, agave and cacti can be found. Non-desert vegetation is capable of growth in the regions that receive higher amounts of rain. Aspen, oak, fir and cedar forests are known to grow in the mountain territories.

With thousands of tourists visiting each year, Los Cabos continues to grow. New resorts and city attractions persevere, attracting people from around the world.
