Spring break is just about to start, and it’s only days away from Los Cabos being filled with young spring breakers and families looking to have a good time.   

One of the things that draws so many spring breakers to Los Cabos, aside from the stunning beaches, epic nightlife, and amazing all-inclusives, is the fact that it is one of the safest spring break destinations in Mexico.   

Security operations launched during spring break make the destination even safer, and now, as in previous years, Los Cabos authorities are increasing security measures ahead of spring break to keep tourists safe.

Increased Security Measures During Spring Break 

One of the most popular activities for spring breakers visiting Los Cabos is hitting up the energetic nightlife hotspots in downtown Cabo San Lucas.   

This is why increased security is mainly focused here, as well as in popular areas like Medano Beach and the marina area of Cabo San Lucas.   

In all three of these areas, you can expect to see increased security patrols on the lookout for criminals approaching spring break visitors.

Los Cabos Spring Break Hotspots 

As mentioned earlier, the most visited spring break hotspots are downtown Cabo San Lucas and the marina and Medano Beach areas of Cabo San Lucas.   

In these areas, you’ll find the best nightclubs, bars, and beach clubs.   

Because these areas are typically packed with spring breakers, for those looking for a quieter, more relaxing spring break experience, San Jose del Cabo and the Tourist Corridor are better options.
