Los Cabos is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico. While it lags behind Cancun in terms of visitor numbers, many travelers argue that Cabo is in fact THE place to be, and that’s why it won the top spot in Conde Nast’s recent Readers’ Choice Awards.

There is a reason it’s so popular among travelers from all demographics, particularly American travelers and celebrities.   

There are five things specifically that make Los Cabos not only the number one destination in Mexico but the amazing destination that it is.

Los Cabos has some pretty unique sights to see as well.   

One of them, Land’s End, where the Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean meet, is the most popular sight in the destination.

Where To Stay In Los Cabos 

One of the other great things about Los Cabos is that there is no shortage of amazing hotels, many of which are luxury all-inclusive resorts with awesome amenities.   

There are three main areas where the hotels are concentrated: Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, and the Tourist Corridor that lies in the middle.   

Cabo San Lucas is considered to be more of a party area, whereas the hotels in San Jose del Cabo and along the Tourist Corridor are known for typically being quieter and more laidback.
