Cancun might be stealing the spotlight, but savvy American travelers are onto a new summer secret: Los Cabos.

This is why it isn’t surprising that Los Cabos is among the top summer destinations for Americans this year, according to a new report from Allianz Partners.

The Allianz Partners Report 

Allianz Partners, which is a company that sells various travel-related products, reported the top 10 international travel destinations for Americans this year.   

The company based its report on Americans’ flight itineraries for the period between late May and the beginning of September.   

Among those itineraries, Los Cabos made it to the number 2 spot, only rivaled by Cancun, which came in at number 1.

Why Los Cabos Is So Popular Among Americans 

There are several reasons for Los Cabos’ popularity as a summer beach vacation destination for American travelers.   

It’s not just about the beaches and the warm weather, although they both play a major role in making Los Cabos the popular destination that it is.   

Let’s take a look at a few of the other reasons Americans love Los Cabos, though.

The Close Proximity To The U.S. 

When it comes to looking for amazing beach vacation destinations, one of the things that adds to the attractiveness is being able to get there quickly, and easily.   

With Los Cabos’ close proximity to the U.S., travelers from many states can get to Los Cabos Airport In just a few short hours.   

Additionally, for many travelers, flights are fairly affordable compared to destinations further away.

A Wide Variety Of Accommodations Options 

While Los Cabos is known for its beautiful luxury all-inclusives, they are not the only option when visiting the destination.   

For those looking for a more laid-back, personal experience, there are also several great boutique hotels, including one in which you can stay in a treehouse.   

Airbnb is also a very popular option in Los Cabos as well, so there is something to suit everyone’s needs.

An Opportunity To Explore Diverse Nature  

Los Cabos may have a tropical desert climate, but there’s much more than desert land and water in the destination.   

The natural surroundings are actually very diverse.   

You’ll find mountains, waterfalls, hot springs, hiking trails, and more to explore throughout the region, so it’s a nature lover’s dream destination.   

If you get the chance, definitely make sure you visit Cabo Pulmo! If you like nature, this area is often called “The Aquarium of the World”, and it lives up to the name.

The Safety And Security Of The Destination  

Security is important when visiting any vacation destination, whether at home or abroad.   

Los Cabos is generally a safe destination to visit, not without its crime, but with crime rarely directed at tourists.   

The U.S. State Department does not even have any restrictions on traveling to Los Cabos right now, which is evidence of how safe it is.

Why Summer Is A Fantastic Time For A Los Cabos Vacation 

As mentioned previously, just because summer isn’t the busiest season for tourism in Los Cabos doesn’t mean that it isn’t a good time to visit.   

Crowds are smaller during the summer months, and the weather is hot, making it perfect for enjoying the beaches.

Sometimes, you can find better deals during the summertime, too.   

If the purpose of your Los Cabos vacation isn’t to escape the cold during the wintertime, then you may just want to consider visiting during the summer instead.

A huge problem with Cabo vs. Cancun is that Cabo has no nonstop whatsoever to Florida, while Cancun has many, many nonstop flights. Until Cabo flies nonstop to Florida or more locations in the East, Cancun will always be #1.
