It’s no secret that Los Cabos is a luxury vacation destination that comes with a lavish price tag for travelers vacationing in the popular destination.
And like everything else, hotel rates in Los Cabos are on the rise too.
But you can still have an affordable Los Cabos vacation if you know how to save, as the average hotel cost in Los Cabos rises to $540 per night.
What You Get For $540 A Night
With an average rate of $540 a night, the nightly hotel rate in Los Cabo varies considerably, with nightly rates going as high as $1,800 for the most luxurious resorts.
But there are some pretty great options within the $540-a-night range.
Five highly-rated resorts that fall right around that price range include:
- Hyatt Ziva Los Cabos All-Inclusive
- Grand Fiesta Americana Los Cabo All-Inclusive Golf & Spa
- Hilton Los Cabos
- Solaz, A Luxury Collection Resort, Los Cabos
- Pueblo Bonito Rose Resort & Spa All-Inclusive

Cheaper Doesn’t Necessarily Mean Bad
Although high-end luxury resorts often offer extra amenities and superior service, cheaper doesn’t necessarily mean bad when it comes to Los Cabos resort options.
There are many resorts that are highly rated that fall well below that $540 mark.
Five Los Cabos resorts that fit into this category, with nightly rates for dates in October, include:
- Hotel El Ganzo Adults Only – $383
- Hotel Tesoro Los Cabos – $326
- Medano Hotel and Spa – $164
- Solmar Resort – $138

Least Expensive Time To Vacation In Los Cabos
In addition to booking a less expensive resort for your Los Cabos vacation without sacrificing quality, you can save money by vacationing at certain times of the year too.
The most expensive times to visit Los Cabos are the winter and spring, particularly during spring break.
Rates are a bit lower for the summer months, but fall is when rates really typically drop considerably because it’s the slow season.
@journeyswithkris Replying to @spelmanwoman04 Spring and fall months like May and November are two of the perfect times to vacation in Cabo. Both months have lower tourism and are usually cheaper as well. Other factors like the weather are also better in these months. The days stay constant between 85 and 90 degrees Fahrenheit but the nights are much cooler. #loscabos #visitloscabos #mexico #traveltiktok #travelblogger #loscabosmexico🏝 ♬ Calma (Remix) – Pedro Capo X Farruko
All-Inclusives Vs. Standard Hotels
It could be argued that standard hotels are generally less expensive than all-inclusives, but are you really saving money by passing on the all-inclusive resort?
This is debatable because food and beverage costs can quickly and significantly run up a vacation budget.
With an all-inclusive, you pay your price, and everything’s included, so no surprise budget increases are necessary.
Embracing The Weekday Vacation
Another way to save money when booking your Los Cabos vacation is to try to include as many weekdays as possible.
Hotel rates are often lower during the week, and those savings can add up fast.
For example, the rates for three of the hotels listed above would be lower if you traveled on a Tuesday rather than on a weekend day, dropping to the following rates:
- $170 – Hotel El Ganzo Adults Only
- $212 – Hotel Tesoro Los Cabos
- $146 – Medano Hotel and Spa

Saving With Package Deals
Although it may not always be the case, sometimes you can save money on your Los Cabos vacation by booking a package deal.
Specifically, booking a hotel and flight together can result in lower hotel rates.
Pretty much every major airline and online booking engine offers the option of booking as a package, so it’s definitely something to look into.

Planning A Vacation Budget
Vacations are meant for splurging, but it doesn’t mean you have to spend your entire vacation budget on a hotel.
Planning a vacation budget will help you to determine how much you can spend on a hotel while still leaving enough to enjoy Los Cabos while you’re there.
Because the important thing is to experience as much of the destination as possible during your Los Cabos vacation.
