Los Cabos 

Los Cabos is a region in the Mexican State of Baja California Sur, located on the Baja Peninsula, which connects to the southern United States.  There are two cities that make up Los Cabos, which translates to “The Capes.”  San Jose del Cabo is a bit less touristy and artsier, while Cabo San Lucas has a vibrant nightlife and offers more water activities, and the area in between is the Tourist Corridor.

The entire Los Cabos area is known for its luxury all-inclusive resorts and high-end hotels, and each area has some amazing properties.  The bulk of the ones that made the top 25 list are located in Cabo San Lucas, but Cabo San Lucas is also a bigger city than San Jose del Cabo.  Regardless of which area you stay in, though, you’ll have no trouble finding a fantastic hotel or resort.

How Top 25 Hotels Are Chosen 

There is no one criteria that hotels have to meet in order to make it to the Best Hotels in Mexico list, but rather multiple factors are considered.  There are three main components that contribute to U.S. News’ hotel rankings.  They include: 

  1. Awards and recognition a hotel has received from experts in the travel industry. 
  2. A hotel’s class ratings, which can vary from one publication to the next, so multiple ratings are considered. 
  3. Guest rating data that is provided to U.S. News by TripAdvisor.

Understanding Hotel Rankings 

When U.S. News rates hotels, it only rates luxury properties because travelers that are looking for the best hotels typically look for high-end options.  Not everybody is looking to spend the kind of money it costs to stay at such luxurious hotels and resorts, though.  For those looking for something a little bit more budget-friendly, there are still plenty of great options in Los Cabos.
