Cabo San Lucas Vs. San Jose Del Cabo 

Los Cabos consists of two separate destinations, Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.   

Each is quite different from the other, with Cabo San Lucas being more of a party hotspot and a hub for tours and activities, and San Jose del Cabo being the more laid-back, authentic, cultural town.   

Both have fantastic all-inclusives and beautiful beaches, so which one you choose depends on the kind of vacation you’re looking for.   

One thing is for sure, though, no matter which Cabo experience you choose, you’ll have plenty of options for getting there.
