Now that we are surging forward, new travel trends are revealing themselves in destinations around the globe.

Los Cabos is seeing a new type of traveler as we head into 2024, where it’s not the all-inclusive drinks and buffets they’re seeking.

Quite the opposite, in fact. While some of us want to feast on all the vacation goodies, the health and wellness field is becoming more of a draw for those wanting to recharge and put their mind, body, and soul before anything else.

A Health And Wellness Push

Los Cabos may be one of the most luxurious vacation spots in the world, but not all are seeking to splurge on material things.

While some may seek the highest thread count on their boujee hotel’s satin sheets, others are counting calories and pushups on the beach.

A recent study conducted by the Los Cabos Tourism Board has reported that nearly 20% of tourists want to include wellness activities in their itinerary.

Hence the push by the Board to promote Los Cabos as a wellness destination. Visiting Cabo surely has positive affects for mind and soul with the stunning natural sights all around southern Baja.

The latest reports show wellness-minded vacationers are spending a whopping $3,000 per trip, which has definitely caught local officials’ attention.

Los Cabos will no longer only be known for gorgeous beaches, sunsets over the famous El Arco, and immaculate resorts.
