To no surprise, Los Cabos continues its reign as one of Mexico’s premiere destinations. While a similar report was released in August, the latest statistics from Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism showcase how much of an international hub Cabo really is.
Although Americans lead the pack in flocking to Los Cabos, this sunny paradise has made a name for itself across the globe.
Canada and Colombia are 2 other nations that follow the U.S. in making Cabo their go-to vacation spot.
With so many connections, Baja’s most beautiful region is an easy flight away to experience pure bliss on some of Mexico’s finest coastlines.
There are many reasons why travelers continue flocking to Cabo. Let’s take a look at why this stunning destination is thriving with tourists:
Cancun or Los Cabos?
It’s no secret Americans are in love with Mexico. No matter where you are in the States, a dreamy Mexican vacation is always within sight.
The question is, “where do you go?”. With so many awesome places to choose from, ranging from smaller beach towns to bustling vacation spots, you have to realize what you are seeking.
When it comes to the 2 most popular beach destinations in Mexico, it is without a doubt Cancun and Los Cabos.
Cancun received the most visitors of all, totaling over 6 million, which makes Cabo’s 1.6 million look like child’s play even though it is breaking all-time tourism records.
So, why is one more popular than the other? Both are amazing in their own right, but it may come down to logistics.
Cancun is more convenient to reach from the southern, midwest, and eastern states, while Cabo is more reachable from the west coast and southwest.
Not to say that anyone will find it difficult to visit either place, but they are a lot alike in terms of what is offered for your next vacation.
Both Cancun and Cabo are world-renowned for their luxurious all-inclusive resorts. What you have to decide is how much you are willing to pay for a boujee vacay.
All-inclusive stays are not usually on the cheaper side, so you might hesitate to open your credit card bill when it arrives.
Cabo, in fact, has been quite stubborn with their hotel rates, even in the fall season after the summer crowds have dissipated.
As tourists seek more sun to escape the impending winter weather, those prices may be here to stay. So why is it worth paying premium prices to come to Cabo?
Here, there are some of the finest resorts in the world with the most clean beaches anywhere in Latin America.
Cabo welcomes any type of travelers, from backpackers to weddings to families and everything in between.
It is one of the safest destinations in Mexico and always prioritizes tourists above all else. This can’t always be said about other top destinations.
Where Cabo Ranks In Mexico’s Top Destinations This Year
We have established Cancun was the top overall beach destination in Mexico, but it was actually number one, period.
Cancun ranked first, followed by Mexico City and Los Cabos rounded out the top 3. You can’t go wrong with any of them as they offer a wonderful experience for travelers.
Mexico City used to have a sketchy reputation, but Mexico has vastly improved safety in regions of the country that tourists love visiting.
That is one of the main draws for Cabo as tourists feel comfortable exploring the area, whether staying at an amazing beachfront resort, going out for a night on the town, or on super fun excursions.
In fact, all 3 of Mexico’s top destinations have high safety reports in terms of tourists. When travelers are looking for their next Mexican escape, its obvious safety is an important factor.
Whether choosing Cabo, Cancun, or the largest city in North America, travelers are destined to have the trip of a lifetime.
That’s why, year after year, tourists keep coming back with no signs of slowing down.
