More About Los Cabos

Overview

At the tip of Mexico's Baja California Peninsula is the magical resort destination of Los Cabos. This unique environment pulls together contrasting concepts to create a visually stunning backdrop. Known as "Land's End," this is a place where worlds collide. Arid desert and rugged mountains meet, and the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez become one. The natural beauty of this place is part of the reason Los Cabos is such a popular destination.

Cabo San Lucas is located on the Pacific side of the peninsula and features scenic desert landscapes and pristine golden beaches. Started as an isolated fishing village with few settlers, Cabo has since developed into a world-class getaway. Today Cabo has popular resorts, pulsating nightlife, delicious dining options, a world-class marina and the biggest fishing event in the world. The waters around Cabo offer some of the best deep-sea fishing opportunities around making this the place to go for those who want to tangle with the giants of the sea.

Connecting Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo is a golfer's paradise known as the Corridor, a 20-mile stretch of highway that cuts between rolling desert hills and the Sea of Cortez. Seven renowned courses designed by greats such as Jack Nicklaus, Robert Trent Jones Jr., Tom Fazio, and Tom Weiskopf, lie along this coastline making this the premier place for those wanting to play a few rounds. Not only is this the place for golfers, but this is also a place for those who enjoy the water. The all-inclusive resorts in this area have beautiful beaches and safe waters that are ideal for swimming, snorkeling, surfing, and scuba diving.

San Jose del Cabo, the second half of this region, rests on the Sea of Cortez. This old pirate hideout turned into a center of commerce with trade ships stocking up on supplies along their journeys. The transformation from a shipping port to famous resort destination hit in the 1980s with the completion of the international airport allowing infrastructure to support growing development in the region. Today visitors flock to the area to explore top attractions such as the Misson of San Jose del Cabo, founded in 1730, and the Art District featuring works from local and visiting artisans. Beach lovers can gaze upon migrating gray whales, spot marine birds and witness the excitement of turtle hatchlings as they emerge and venture into the sea for the first time.

It is important to arrive at the airport at least 90 minutes prior to departure for all domestic flights, and two to three hours prior to departure for international flights.

Entry requirements for non-U.S. citizens might be different, and visitors are encouraged to verify the documentation/visa requirements with the nearest consulate or embassy. Rules are subject to change at any time, without notice. For the most current information, please visit the website of the U.S. Department of State at www.travel.state.gov.

General Safety Tips: By taking a few simple security precautions before and during your vacation you can help ensure that you, your traveling companions, and your valuables are as safe and secure as possible.
  • To make it easier to replace your passport if it’s lost or stolen, in addition to your passport, take a photocopy of your passport information page (keeping it separate from your actual passport).
  • Carry only a limited amount of cash, just enough for gratuities and incidental purchases. Major credit cards are widely accepted and can be replaced if lost or stolen.
  • Always lock your hotel room door (including patio and balcony door on any level of the building) and use the peephole before opening the door.
  • Store your valuables (such as cash, credit cards and airline tickets) in the hotel’s in-room safe or front desk safety deposit box.
  • If you must carry valuables on your person, do so in a pouch or money belt concealed under your clothing. Purses and backpacks can be easy targets for thieves.
