Where to stayin Los Cabos

The sunny, seaside paradise of Los Cabos is actually made up of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, two different cities with distinctive personalities and hotel choices. Choose where to stay according to whether you want the best nightlife scene (Cabo) or a quieter, beach getaway (San Jose). Connected by the Tourist Corridor, both cities offer neighborhoods that fulfil dreams of a sun-splashed vacation. Look for resorts at all price points with amenities ranging from world-class golf courses to gourmet restaurants to upscale spas. Kayaking, deep-sea fishing, snorkeling and diving are among the many ocean pursuits on offer when you choose to book a vacation in dreamy Los Cabos.

Top Areas for First-Timers

The beaches are hives of activity in Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Toward the northern end of the Tourist Corridor, San Jose del Cabo's Zona Hotelera is one of the most popular places to stay. This is where you'll find the area's renowned beachside resorts, world-class golf, big-game fishing, shopping and dining. If you want to swim and snorkel, opt for accommodations along Playa Santa Maria and Chileno Bay. Stay in Marina to glimpse fishing boats and luxury yachts coming and going from the bustling esplanade. If you're into water sports, choose a hotel at Medano Beach on San Lucas Bay, home to several kayak and water scooter rental operators.

Or, just visit the area from your more budget-friendly hotel for its twice-weekly organic farmers' market.

Best Neighborhoods for Outdoor Activities

Touted worldwide for its water sports, Cabo San Lucas' best fishing, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, surfing and more are based in the Marina neighborhood. Swimming with dolphins is also possible here, too. The East Cape, a 70-mile arc from San Jose del Cabo to Los Barriles, is a great place to stay for off-the-beaten-path hotels and pristine scenery. The fishing and diving are still world class, but the crowds are much smaller.

Top Spots for Culture
