Increase In Connectivity  

The significant growth in tourism in Los Cabos, which includes the destinations of San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, is the reason for the increase in connectivity.   

Mr. Esponda commented on this growth, stating that “the connectivity network has been consolidated, and with this, the variety of tourists and the niches that can come to Los Cabos has expanded.”   

He further commented, “The growth and consolidation of Los Cabos and the entire Baja California Sur region has led to airlines, both national and international, turning to the destination, demand has grown comparatively more than in others, which has led to more connectivity.”

The Allure Of Los Cabos 

Los Cabos, which are essentially two different vacation destinations in one, has something to offer everyone.   

The entire region is known for its beaches and opportunities for water and adventure activities, but still, San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas each have their own separate identity as well.   

San Jose del Cabo is a quieter, more authentic Mexican town, while Cabo San Lucas is more touristy and more energetic than its more sophisticated counterpart.

Los Cabos International Airport 

Los Cabos International Airport is located in San Jose del Cabo, about 15 minutes from the city itself and a little over a half hour from Cabo San Lucas.   

The airport consists of three terminals, one of which, Terminal 2,  is designated for international flights only, a handful of restaurants and shops, and four lounges to serve travelers waiting at the airport.   

In February, the most recent month with published statistics, there was a 24 percent increase in traffic at Los Cabos International Airport compared to last year.

Some direct flights may only be seasonal, and more flights could also be added in the future, either on a permanent or seasonal basis. While it isn’t always the case, travelers should be prepared to spend some time waiting in customs if flights are delayed and don’t arrive at their originally intended scheduled times.

Most flights are offered from Los Angeles, with a total of 262 flights available this month alone.   

But no matter where you are in the U.S., you won’t have to go too far to find a flight, either direct or with stops, to Los Cabos International Airport.
