Last Updated

There are multiple vacation destinations in Mexico that have become hugely popular among international tourists.   

But it goes without saying that some destinations are more popular than others.   

But although Los Cabos, or any of the other destinations, don’t get quite as many visitors as the tourist hotspot of Cancun, it has surpassed other popular destinations.

Los Cabos Climbing To The Top  

Two of the places that Los Cabos has surpassed in popularity are Merida, located on the Yucatan Peninsula, and Acapulco, which is located on the Pacific coast, nearly 400 miles south of Mexico City.    

Both have long been favorite Mexican vacation destinations but are being surpassed by Los Cabos, which has been growing in popularity exponentially.   

There are three reasons, specifically, for Los Cabos becoming more popular than many other well-known destinations in Mexico.

Luxury Hotels And Resorts 

Perhaps the biggest reason for Los Cabos becoming more popular than other destinations is the level of pure luxury when it comes to hotels and resorts in the region.   

Some of the best all-inclusives in the country are in Los Cabos, according to Forbes, and in fact, three made that list.   

They include Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos, Grand Solmar at Rancho San Lucas, and Grand Velas Los Cabos, which has made it on multiple prestigious lists.

@shoreline_weddings Why do I love Grand Velas Los Cabos? Here’s why!⁠ ⁠ Pools! With Cabo having mainly un-swimmable beaches, having great pools is important. These did not disappoint and were the centerpiece of the resort. The adult-only pool is closest to the ocean.⁠ ⁠ View! There’s really not a bad view on property. With the U shape design, the rooms are all ocean facing so you can expect to have a beautiful view no matter which room you select. Lower floors will have less of a view but still fantastic!⁠ ⁠ Frida! With multiple dining options on property, there is something to please everyone. However, Frida was it for me! Great Mexican cuisine, beautiful atmosphere whether indoors or outdoors, and overall reminded me of why I love Mexico so much!⁠ ⁠ Kids/Teen Club! I don’t know that I’ve seen a better kids club yet. Between the cool nooks with gaming devices to the dance floor, it really is well thought out. LOVE this resort for families! This sealed the deal!!⁠ ⁠ All-inclusive that doesn’t feel all-Inclusive! This is about as good as it gets when it comes to food at an all inclusive. There is nothing that feels all-inclusive about it and for those skeptical, I challenge you to try it. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #destinationwedding #destinationweddingplanning #destinationweddingplanners #loscabos #mexico #destinationweddingmexico #loscaboswedding ♬ original sound

Incredible Hospitality

Another Reason For Los Cabos’ Popularity 

In addition to being a destination where visitors can indulge in pure luxury, Los Cabos is also a place to experience the great outdoors.   

Los Cabos is filled with the opportunity for adventure, and on both land and sea, there are endless activities to be enjoyed.

Bonus Reason To Visit Los Cabos 

Not only are many hotels and resorts in Los Cabos luxurious, but they are filled with amenities too, especially the all-inclusives.   

Unlike the typically dreaded buffets that all-inclusives in other places have come to be known for, you’ll find gourmet dining at many in Los Cabos and premium liquors at the bars.   

Other unique amenities include 24-hour in-room dining, daily restocking of complimentary mini bar items, and exciting daily activities.
