Los Cabos is a popular vacation destination for tourists of all ages, but there has been a shift in what tourism officials consider its main market.   

It used to be more popular among adults over the age of 50 years old, but now they are seeing that their main market has shifted to millennials ranging in age from 35-45 years old.   

You’re probably wondering what has led to this change, so let’s take a look at why this change has occurred and five reasons why millennials are flocking to Los Cabos more than anyone else right now according to Fiturca.   

5 Reasons Why Millennials Are Flocking To Los Cabos More Than Anyone Else Right Now

What Has Caused This Shift In Los Cabos’ Main Market? 

The shift in the main market that Los Cabos serves began to happen during the pandemic.   

Mexico’s borders remained open and travelers, particularly from the United States due to the proximity, began to flock to places like Los Cabos.   

They were looking for someplace to go with wide open spaces and places where they could work remotely, particularly millennials who held the types of jobs that allowed remote work opportunities.   

Los Cabos is one of the destinations that checked both of those boxes, plus the destination has five main things that attract millennials.

Millennials are focusing more and more on environmental concerns, and Los Cabos is developing into a sustainable destination.   

There is a major effort to disrupt nature as little as possible.   

The destination’s focus on how resources are used, the use of renewable resources, and the incorporation of hotels and resorts into the natural environment seem to be a major attraction for this age group.

One of the other major attractions of Los Cabos for millennials, which goes along with their concerns regarding the environment, is the diverse nature to be explored.   

While Los Cabos is generally considered a beach vacation destination, the natural surroundings go far beyond the beaches that line the coast.   

Desert land, mountains, and nature reserves also offer opportunities to explore nature in the destination.
