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.
