5 Reasons Why Los Cabos Is So Much More Than A Beach Vacation Destination

Share The Article

Last Updated

Los Cabos, which is made up of the two coastal cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, has long been known as a beach vacation destination.   

Numerous stunning beaches line the coast, some suitable for swimming, others secluded and perfect for a day of sunbathing or a walk on the beach.   

As amazing as the beaches are, though, there are 5 reasons why Los Cabos is so much more than a beach vacation destination.

Luxury Around Every Corner  

It’s not every day that you find a beach vacation destination and a luxury vacation destination in one, but that is exactly what Los Cabos is.   

Due to its large array of luxury hotels, all-inclusives, and experiences, Los Cabos has been making a name for itself as a premier luxury vacation destination for the past several years.   

It’s so luxurious that it’s even popular among the rich and famous, particularly among Hollywood celebrities.   

@brittani.inthecity This Adults Only Resort in Cabo I visited this summer was everything! Y’all know I’m a sucker for beautiful views and scenery, this video does the resort no justice. 😍☀️ Such a beautiful property with an amazing staff. Very affordable and still gives the luxury, relaxation feel! This resort is all-inclusive with access to the restaurants on the property and the sister property’s restaurants. Some of the restaurants were hit or miss but for the most part, I enjoyed the property. The resort sits on the beach with beach views however, this part of Cabo has non swimmable beaches. 🥲 Such a perfect place for a baecation or trip to relax. Definitely not a turn up resort and I enjoyed that. I can’t wait to go back 🥰 Travel Agency: @inthecitydestinations 📍 Pueblo Bonito Pacifica #cabo #cabosanlucas #pueblobonitopacifica #pueblobonito #mexico #travel #allinclusiveresort #adultsonlyresort #caborresort ♬ DONK – postofbey

Nature Beyond The Beaches To Explore 

Los Cabos may be filled with amazing beaches, but the coastline isn’t the only natural element that makes it the breathtakingly beautiful place that it is.   

For starters, the backdrop of that coastline and its beaches is a pristine desert and impressive hills and mountains, so it’s become a prime pick for nature lovers.   

By going a little beyond Los Cabos, there are even more opportunities to explore nature at places like Cabo Pulmo National Park, the Sierra de la Laguna mountains, the Cascada Sol de Mayo waterfalls, and the El Chorro and Santa Rita hot springs.

Cultural Experiences Everywhere 

While San Jose del Cabo is more known for culture than Cabo San Lucas, the truth is you can find cultural experiences everywhere in Los Cabos.   

The cultural experiences you’ll find go far beyond Mexican food and margaritas.   

You can explore local arts and crafts, farm-to-table dining, musical performances, history, holiday celebrations, and more throughout the region.

The Perfect Place For Wellness Getaways 

Los Cabos is also an amazing wellness vacation destination, for two main reasons.   

The first reason is related to all of the luxury all-inclusive resorts in the two cities, many of which have state-of-the-art, world-class spas on their properties.   

The other is due to all of the unique wellness treatments that you can enjoy in Los Cabos, like ancient Mezcal ceremonies, beach yoga, sound healing ceremonies, and more.

A Paradise For Food Lovers  

Many tourists want to try real, authentic Mexican street food when visiting Mexico, but in Los Cabos, the culinary scene goes far beyond quick meals that you can get on the go.   

Both on and off of the all-inclusive resort properties, you’ll find restaurants run by award-winning chefs.   

From Italian to authentic Mexican and everything in between, there are plenty of dining options for true food lovers visiting Los Cabos.

How Connectivity Contributes To Los Cabos’ Popularity  

One of the reasons that Los Cabos is so popular, aside from all of the amazing amenities and things to do, is that there is also great airport connectivity with the destination.   

Particularly from the U.S. and Canada, there is the best connectivity, with hundreds of weekly flights available.   

These two countries have direct flights available from 28 cities and 10 cities, respectively.

Beat Time To Experience Los Cabos 

No time is a bad time to visit Los Cabos, but if you want to enjoy exploring the desert, mountains, and hot springs, the cooler winter months are the best time to visit.   

The winter and spring months are the busiest time of year in Los Cabos, though, so you’ll want to plan early.   

If you’re going for the beaches and water activities, you’ll probably enjoy the summertime the most for your Los Cabos vacation.
