Los Cabos has further cemented its place as the most popular big destination in Mexico after government figures showed it maintained an occupancy level of at least 84.5% in 2023 so far.

It came in third overall, but what is most telling is it’s the only city-scale destination even to make the top 5!

This popularity is no accident; Los Cabos has worked hard to become a year-round destination and has taken huge strides across everything from security to air connectivity.

These are some of the main reasons why Los Cabos is so consistently popular.

Word-Class Resorts

The resorts in Los Cabos are second to none in Mexico, and many of them place highly in the global rankings of reputable sources like the Forbes Travel Guide.

Some of the world’s biggest hotelier brands are present, providing everything from Michelin-star dining to villas and suites the world’s rich and famous can’t get enough of.

But, one of Los Cabo’s strengths is it doesn’t price out the world; travelers of every budget can find the perfect accommodation in the destination.

Furthermore, Los Cabos is home to every vacation type imaginable. The area has built its name on spring break parties and high-end luxury, a crown it still holds today.

But there are just as many great offerings for families wanting a fun-filled all-inclusive experience, and even those intent on experiencing the ultimate eco-tourism have a wealth of choices.

Amazing Dining & Entertainment

There is no end to the experiences and activities travelers are able to enjoy in Los Cabos, but the dining and entertainment are definitely some of the biggest highlights.

A Food Lovers Paradise

Many world-renowned chefs call Los Cabos home, and the destination draws the trendiest brands from all over the world, including the super-popular Nobu.

Although the dining experiences at high-end restaurants are something special, travelers don’t need to fork out a lot of money to enjoy a fresh and beautifully cooked meal.

This is Mexico, after all, a country world-famous for its food, and Los Cabos has its own food fame within Mexico. Here travelers have access to the best of the county’s seafood, as well as all the national favorites.

Never a place to restrict choice, travelers can chow down on dishes from every part of the world. One night can be Mediterranean and the next night Caribbean. Or if travelers are missing the taste of home, one of the many great steakhouses or burger joints is always ready to satisfy those cravings.

No matter a traveler’s preference when it comes to food, they can find something for them here, and almost always in high quality.

Nightlife That Never Disappoints

The nightlife in Los Cabos doesn’t feel like it needs much introduction. The destination has been a spring break institution for decades now and shows no signs of losing its popularity.

But it isn’t just intoxicated 21-year-olds that come here to party. Every age group is shown a killer time with rock bars, jazz clubs, speakeasies, and regular music festivals of all genres plugging into the speakers here.

And true to form, many of the resorts in Los Cabos put on their own entertainment packages for travelers. So even those tied to parental duties can enjoy a bit of liveliness while on vacation.

Sights Not To Forget

Los Cabos is full of sights and experiences that last a lifetime. The many beaches and naturally rugged rock formations along the coast make for a beautiful vacation backdrop.

What’s more, getting around is easy here, and the full beauty of everything this destination has to offer is just waiting for travelers willing to venture out of the resorts.

Snorkeling in coral reefs, sailing out into the ocean to catch monster Marlin and Tuna, exploring the desert in dune buggies and ATVs, helping recently hatched baby turtles reach the ocean safely from predators, there’s no end to the diversity of experiences here.

And that is possibly where Los Cabo’s biggest strength lies. Many of the people visiting here have been coming back again and again for decades.

Some had their first beer here during spring break in the 90s, then they had their first family vacation here, their wedding, their anniversary celebrations, and now decades later, they’re still returning and finding new experiences and an ever better Los Cabos.
