As we fly into 2024 with the promise that this will be the best year ever for a Los Cabos vacation, the destination brings with it a mountain of awards, accolades, and endorsements from a huge number of sources in 2023.
However, while the huge number of awards is indeed impressive, it’s only right to recognize that not all hold the same value.
Some are granted internally by organizations within the Mexican government or the tourism industry, which could be interpreted as someone shaking their own hand.
While others come with accusations of favoritism and financial bias.
Thankfully, those concerns don’t apply to the majority, with fantastic and highly trusted publications such as Forbes and Condé Nast recognizing Los Cabos and its tourism industry regularly for its great achievements as a destination.
And among the trusted publications, there’s one that stands out as an undeniably important endorsement.
A global superstar within the travel industry, Travel Weekly has been around for over 60 years, a period that has seen tourism change beyond all recognition compared to when the publication put out its first magazine.
And over those decades, Travel Weekly has built a strong reputation as a trusted source of news within the travel industry.
Many travelers may be unaware of Travel Weekly with it being aimed at those within the industry it can pass by the average traveler, but its yearly reader’s choice awards are held in extremely high regard, and are watched closely by destinations as one of the most important thumbs up they can receive from the industry.
With that established, it’s easy to see why it’s such a big deal that Los Cabos has regained the Travel Weekly Reader’s Choice Award for Best Destination In Mexico.
Mexico’s Best Destination
When it comes to choosing a vacation destination in Mexico, most Americans decide between either Los Cabos or Cancun.
Both have worked their way into American’s hearts over the years, with each having a laundry list of reasons why they keep bringing travelers back year after year.
And while Cancun wins on sheer numbers, it’s Los Cabos that continues to be the high achiever when it comes to important metrics like traveler satisfaction. An outcome that has been hard-won through a constantly evolving vacation offering.
Why Los Cabos?
Los Cabos was built around tourism, and apart from a history of mining before resorts took over the landscape, tourism has long been the lifeblood of this corner of Mexico.
From its early days catering to Hollywood celebrities, Los Cabos quickly gained a reputation for luxury, privacy, and exclusivity.
And while other destinations around the world have watered down those 3 aspects of a vacation, Los Cabos has consistently doubled down on them, recognizing them as the reason for its popularity.
This leads us to why Los Cabos continues to go from strength to strength, even during times of economic uncertainty.
Los Cabos Knows Itself
While Los Cabos isn’t the only place in Mexico to find a luxurious resort, there’s nowhere else where luxury is a minimum standard.
Even in the more budget-friendly resorts, travelers will still find beautiful décor, top-notch service, and extensive amenities.
Additionally, this luxurious minimum standard, held up by the destination’s reputation, means that the less budget-friendly resorts have to shoot for the stars to make themselves attractive to travelers.
That’s why Los Cabos continues to outpace its competition. The constantly evolving resorts in Los Cabos, no matter how full their booking calendar gets, know that they can’t take their foot off the gas, because if they do then destinations like Cancun, Tulum, and Puerto Vallarta will be all too happy to take travelers off their hands.
