A New Tourist Base For Los Cabos

As Los Cabos works to diversify its tourism base, the competitive sports segment is a new focus for the resort destination.

The Los Cabos Tourism Trust has already set its sights on attracting more affluent travelers with new luxury amenities such as spas, upscale dining, and even championship golf courses.

However, the organization has been actively seeking new ways to attract different travelers to the Los Cabos resort destination.

Events such as triathlons, marathons, and open water swimming competitions not only attract more destination travelers to Los Cabos to participate in the events, but they also attract a younger traveler who likes to spend money in Los Cabos instead of simply drinking and partying.

The Los Cabos Tourism Trust has decided to partner with the Sports Institute of the Municipality of Los Cabos (INDEM) to bring events and this new tourist base to the resort destination.

It’s a good match for the continued development of new tourism based for Los Cabos focused on sustainability, nature, and now even more wellness.
