The Los Cabos tourism fund (FITURCA), which heads most of the promotion of the destination, released the results of polls that they conducted on tourists as they were leaving the destination during the spring break season.
According to Rodrigo Esponda, the head of the organization, over 90% of those polled were pleased with their Cabo vacation.
Esponda did admit that Cabo is facing some big challenges thanks to the dramatic increase in the number of travelers that head to the region.
According to FITURCA the Cabo airport saw a 25% increase in the number of travelers that passed through its gates.
Compared to the same months in 2022. This has caused some concerns that long lines will be a constant at the Cabo airport.
At least until upgrades to the facility are completed. There are plans to add a completely new terminal and expand existing ones over the next couple of years.
Despite The Challenges, Why Do Travelers Overwhelmingly Approve Of Their Cabo Vacation?
Lines at the airport, particularly during the peak spring season and the end-of-the-year surge, may be hard to avoid due to what Esponda explained, with the demand for flights to Los Cabos increasing.
Once at their Cabo resort, though, travelers are likely to experience fewer crowds than at other destinations.
Simply put, many of the high-end all-inclusive resorts in Los Cabos feature fewer rooms than they do in other destinations within Mexico and other parts of the world.
For example, the Grand Solmar resort in Cabo San Lucas, which was recently awarded the all-inclusive resort with the best pool in Mexico by Forbes Magazine, features only about 270 rooms.
The resort still has 7 unique restaurants or bars to cater almost exclusively to guests at the hotel. This means that even at full capacity, these resorts won’t tend to feel as crowded.
Particularly compared to how tourists tend to feel at the larger 1000-room resorts that can be found in abundance at other Mexican beaches.
Thanks to the fact that the resort is not as crowded, service at the different restaurants or even amenities that the hotel offers is usually more efficient and even more personal.
Better Quality Across The Board
What keeps people coming to Cabo is not just the fact that the resorts are less crowded. As we’ve alluded to, though, resorts are built to be able to provide better quality service to fewer people.
Part of that better service is offering superior quality food and drinks to guests. For starters, high-end brands that typically don’t offer all-inclusive deals for their hotels in other places do so in Los Cabos.
If you’re staying at a hotel like the Grand Velas on an all-inclusive deal that’s worth 1500 dollars a night, it would be an insult to be served cheap wine and spirits.
Hotel brands understand that the destination caters to tourists who are looking for a real luxury experience. They’ve shown that they are more than willing to provide these types of experiences.
Does this mean that travelers to Cabo will have to spend a bit more on their vacation? It might, but that extra money is typically money well spent. At least 90% of the travelers polled by FITURCA would agree.
The Desert By The Beach
Apart from the opportunity to experience a luxury vacation, travelers to Cabo have the chance to take advantage of the area’s unique position in the world.
It’s a beach town surrounded by a desert. That makes for very interesting designs in Cabo’s golf courses.
Some of the top players in the world have come to design courses in the region that provide truly appealing challenges to players.
It’s not just golf courses that take advantage of the terrain. There are multiple hiking spots in the Cabo region that travelers enjoy.
Tours include ATV rides or even horseback riding on the Cabo cliffside. Cabo’s geographical position means it’s typically not going to be as hot during the summer as other Mexican beaches.
That’s one of the main reasons different whale species also pick the area to have their calves. All of these elements add up to provide an experience that travelers seem to overwhelmingly enjoy!

Love the Los Cabos area. Wonderful Hotels. restaurants, great fishing, beautiful scenery but WOW the costs of local transportation and taxi services are unrealistically high.
