As Los Cabos keeps getting more and more popular and breaking all tourism records, its prices keep increasing.

With an average luxury room in the municipality costing over $1,000 per night, tourists coming to this destination are now wondering whether other accommodation options are available in the area to help them avoid spending a small fortune on their trip.

Luckily, the answer is yes. Here are four alternative Los Cabos accommodation options for under $100 per night this winter!


With over 1,000 properties listed on the official website in the municipality of Los Cabos, everyone will be able to find a place that suits his packets. 

With rooms for less than $40 per night, this is the ideal option for those on a budget. Many people may think that living with a local can be a nightmare, but there are so many positives in doing so!

Tourists will be able to truly immerse themselves in the authentic Mexican culture, while also getting unique insights into the best areas to visit, restaurants to try, and activities to book. 

It’s also important to remember that booking an Airbnb doesn’t necessarily mean sharing a house with a stranger. 

At the beginning of December 2023, this platform featured over 400 houses for less than $100 per night! Some of these can even host four people, helping tourists cut costs exponentially when booking with friends.

People looking to immerse themselves in unspoiled Los Cabos nature while saving some bucks can do so by opting for one of the many glamping – or camping! – sites in the municipality. 

Glamping sites have all the positives of camping, allowing you to spend your days surrounded by nature, with greater comforts compared to a traditional tent. 

For instance, the ChiloChill glamping site offers luxury tents starting from 1,300 Mexican pesos, the equivalent of roughly $75 per night.

Located in La Ventana Beach, on the stunning Sea of Cortez, guests booking this glamping site will get access to a private bathroom equipped with a hot shower as well as a fast internet connection. 

ChiloChill is also a great place to connect with other travelers as this glamping site regularly organizes activities for its guests, ranging from mountain biking adventures, kitesurf classes, and tons of parties. 


This is, no doubt, the best option for digital nomads or those wanting to stay in Los Cabos a bit longer than the usual weekly trip.

With great amenities such as air conditioning, amazing shared spaces including chill-out areas and outdoor gardens, and fast Wi-Fi, this place can be a great option, especially considering the incredibly low prices.

Last on our list are hostels! When thinking about these types of accommodations, people tend to imagine dirty shared spaces and noisy guests, but this is no longer the case! 

With stunning amenities such as state-of-the-art pools, hostels nowadays can be extremely luxurious despite what most people think.

Prices can also be incredibly cheap, with a room in a dormitory costing as low as $15 and private rooms starting from $50.

Hostels can also be an incredible place to meet other like-minded travelers on a budget and create life-lasting friendships. 

Meeting other tourists can also be a great advantage for your wallet as booking activities together may result in lower prices!

Unlike co-living spaces, hostels are the perfect place for those wanting to stay in Los Cabos for only a few days as, despite their many benefits, people here tend to come and go quite often, making it slightly more difficult to create a proper sense of community.
