If you’re looking for a destination which ticks many boxes, namely nature, beauty, activities, great weather, fantastic dining, amazing nightlife, and ease of travel, then you should be turning your attention towards one of Mexico’s most popular resorts – Cabo San Lucas, also known as Cabo or Los Cabos.
Whether you’re looking for ultra-glam accommodation, cheap digs, or even Los Cabos villas, there is a choice out there for you, and thanks to the redevelopment of the airport, back in the 70s, this resort is now booming with life.
The great thing about Cabo is that it really does combine the best of everything. You won’t be bored, that’s for sure, but you can choose the quieter side of life if you want to as well. Located on the Baja California Sur, Cabo is one of Mexico’s busiest resorts, but that shouldn’t put you off. During the months between November to February you will find the biggest crowds, and this is because the weather is fantastic at this time (although it’s fantastic at anytime of the year, thanks to that tropical desert climate), and sport fishing is at its peak at this part of the year; this is one of the most famous activities to do in this part of the country.
Rain isn’t something you really have to worry about in this resort, however it is a little more likely during the months between July to September. This is also the hurricane season, but don’t let this worry you – such occurrences are very well prepared for, and very far in advance in terms of forecasts.
So, what can you do in Cabo?
Chill out on the amazing beaches, enjoy a round of golf at a championship course, chow down on some of the most delicious gastronomy around, shop ‘til you drop, party ‘til you can’t party no more, enjoy endless water sports, fishing, and also check out the great surfing conditions.
As you can see, there is no boredom to be found here!
This lively resort is easily separated into three main areas. The Old Town is known as San Jose del Cabo, and this is where you will find some of the most authentic Mexican ways of life. This part of the town is also closest to the airport, so you’ll find it easiest to get too. Cabo San Lucas on the other hand, could never be described as sleepy, as this is where the nightlife central part is found. If you Google Cabo images, you’ll also see one particular picture ahead of them all, a famous arch. El Arco is found in this particular part of the resort, which makes it ultra-popular, and a great photograph to add to your collection.
Finally, we have what is known as The Corridor. This is actually a road which links the two other parts of the resort, but it is lined with championship golf courses, high end resorts, and beautiful views over the water.
The great thing about Cabo is that it is so varied and lively. If you’re reading this and thinking that it sounds a little too ‘full on’ however, the best area to visit is The Corridor. This is where the quieter part of the resort can be found, as well as the more high end accommodation. By staying here, you can easily get around the other parts of the resort, dibbing in and out as you see fit, but you can return to peace and quiet at the end of the day or night, however you see fit.
Mexico has always been a popular destination for vacationers, whether honeymooning, weddings, or simply for a break from the dreary weather back home. Everyone seems to think of Cancun when they think of Mexico, and for sure that is the most popular resort in the country. Having said that, it is also the busiest, and not everyone loves major crowds and spring break vibes. If you’re looking for something a little more chilled out, then Cabo is the ideal choice. Yes you get lively nightlife, and during the peak times you get crowds, but the number of natural, outdoor activities on offer means it is a slightly more authentic Mexican experience than Cancun is. Aside from anything else, a change is as good as a rest!
Getting to Cabo isn’t difficult, but you may have to take an indirect flight, to cut down on cost. You can connect via a number of different airports, specifically those in the USA. Why not venture off and have a twin centre break? This gives you the best of both worlds, and for a low cost too! Indirect flights have always been known for cost saving, so you should certainly check this out if you want to keep cash in your pocket,
Checking out your accommodation ahead of time is always a good idea too, to ensure that you’re getting the most comfortable base during your time away. Online is the way to go, and reviews will give you precious information that you will need, to help you make your important decision. If you’re going to travel all this way, you need to make sure that you’re getting all your decisions right!
So, for a lively break, somewhere with breath-taking beauty and nature, easily accessible, and packed with things to see and do, Cabo is a fantastic choice. All you need to do now is figure out when you’re going to go!
