Cabo San Lucas

What is the best area to stay in Cabo San Lucas?

The best area to stay in Cabo San Lucas is El Medano beach, located near the Marina and downtown. It’s the busiest beach in the city and offers more services than any other. If you’re looking for absolute peace and quiet, then this is definitely not for you! There are quieter beaches in Cabo San Lucas, but they don’t have the quality hotels El Médano beach has.


Apart from the variety of restaurants and bars to enjoy yourself in, El Médano beach stands out for the impressive views of the rock formations that form the well-known Arch of Cabo San Lucas. It’s also a great beach for swimming, as there’s very little current there.


The Marina next to Dune beach is a great place to visit and walk around at any time of the day. You’ll find an amazing variety of international tourists there who just love to visit San Lucas to go shopping, have a meal in one of its restaurants, take a boat tour to the Arch, or simply enjoy its views.


The area next to the Marina is what’s considered to be the real downtown of Cabo San Lucas. It’s another area that we’d really recommend you to stay at if you don’t mind being on the beachfront. It’s full of life, and has everything a tourist could possibly need. It’s also a little cheaper than the beach area.


If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle and stay at a quiet beach area, then we recommend the Las Viudas, Pedregal or Tequila Cove (Bledito) beaches.

San José del Cabo, a great option for your stay in Los Cabos

San José del CaboThe municipality of Los Cabos is made up of two main cities, Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo, and is joined by a coastal road full of resorts and golf courses. Although it doesn’t have as many hotel options as Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo is still an excellent area for good-quality hotels.


Although both cities are clearly focused on American tourism, San José still retains the authenticity of a Mexican city. In contrast, the beaches of Cabo San Lucas are better quality, and, above all, more suitable for bathing. The beaches at San José do have one intriguing advantage over Cabo San Lucas: you have a good chance of spotting some whales from the shore!


There’s a better choice of restaurants and nightlife in Cabo San Lucas, but, again, you get a more authentic experience in San José.
