They broke their all-time record only a year after the Covid-19 pandemic ended.

Los Cabos’ Unprecedented Growth 

The shocking numbers in growth don’t stop at the increase in passengers, though, because the availability of flights has increased as well.   

During the month of May, Los Cabos Airport saw an increase of 28 percent in available seats compared to May 2019.   

These numbers show that Los Cabos Airport traffic is growing at an unprecedented rate as the destination skyrockets in popularity and will likely continue to do so.

Beaches, Beaches, And More Beaches 

While some beach vacation destinations might have one main beach that tourists go to spend their time, there are more than 20 beaches in and around Los Cabos worth visiting.   

Each beach has something unique to offer, like Playa Medano, for example, is the best swimming beach and where all the action takes place.   

But there are beaches throughout Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo, in the Tourist Corridor area, and beyond that are either great for swimming, surfing, water activities, or just sunbathing too.
