Maintaining security and the image of safety are two of the most important things that officials in a vacation destination can do to encourage continued growth.   

Travelers want to feel relaxed and safe while on vacation, not worry about crime every time they leave their hotel room, and officials in Los Cabos are doing a fantastic job of maintaining that image.   

This is why Los Cabos’ most popular beach, El Medano, is continuously monitored for tourist safety.

Security On Medano Beach 

Medano Beach and the area around the marina are two hotspots in the vacation destination for tourists.   

To keep the tourists safe, authorities monitor these areas on a permanent basis.   

Multiple organizations coordinate with each other in order to maintain the monitoring of this area, including the municipal and state police, the Navy, the Mexican Secretariat of National Defense (SEDENA), and the National Guard.

Why Los Cabos Is Safer Than Other Mexican Vacation Destinations  

The efforts of Los Cabos authorities are without a doubt one of the biggest reasons for the higher level of security compared to some other Mexican vacation destinations.   

Another factor that contributes to the safety of the destination is its location.   

Separated from the rest of Mexico’s mainland, Los Cabos is far removed from the organized crime that plagues other areas of the country.

Location Of Medano Beach 

Medano Beach is located in Cabo San Lucas, the busier of the two parts that make up Los Cabos.   

The area around the beach is filled with restaurants, bars, and clubs and is almost always packed with tourists looking for a good time.   

For this reason, security is concentrated around this area, as opposed to the quieter streets of San Jose del Cabo.

Why Medano Beach Is So Popular 

One of the reasons Medano Beach is so popular is because it is one of the best swimmable beaches in Los Cabos, as many of them are not safe for swimming at all.   

Additionally, Medano Beach is where you’ll find most of the beach clubs, where you can grab a drink or a bite to eat, rent a cabana for the day, and join in on a beach party.   

There are also plenty of beach vendors on Los Cabos’ most popular beach, offering everything from souvenirs to watercraft rentals.

Things To Do When Visiting Medano Beach 

There is no shortage of things to do when visiting Medano Beach, so you can spend the entire day there having fun.   

Boat tours leave from this area, beach vendors rent out paddleboards, kayaks, jet skis, and more, and the calm waters are the perfect place for snorkeling and scuba diving.   

And if water sports aren’t your thing, you can have a good time just enjoying the views and people-watching too.
