Useful Los Cabos travel tips and information

How to Get Here

With its unmatched proximity and superior air connectivity to major US travel hubs, Los Cabos is one of the fastest-growing luxury destinations in North America. Explore travel options by either air, land or sea, as well as other useful travel info.

Flights and Connectivity

The Los Cabos International Airport-SJD has 550 weekly operations, serving around 40 destinations through major international and domestic carriers. Its privileged location on the Pacific coast of Mexico makes Los Cabos easily accessible from just about anywhere in North America and the world.

Cruise Lines

A must-stop along the Pacific Coast, the Cabo San Lucas Marina functions as a cruise ship terminal. Cruise ships in Cabo San Lucas anchor in the bay (offshore) from where their passengers are tendered to the marina terminal in the inner harbor. The marina is located within walking distance from the heart of downtown Cabo San Lucas.

Cruise Lines include Carnival Cruises, Crystal Cruises, Disney Cruises, Princess Cruises, Holland America, and Royal Caribbean International.

Driving Locally

The highway system that connects San Jose del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas, and north to La Paz, is a modern highway that is safe and easy to travel. Contact us for more information on available ground transportation options to and from the San Jose del Cabo International Airport.

Renting a car allows you the freedom to enjoy and explore Los Cabos. Driving in Mexico may seem intimidating, but if you go with the flow, you will find driving locally to be quite easy. In Los Cabos, it is common for drivers to treat most intersections as four way stops.

Money

Local Currency

US dollars are accepted almost everywhere and you will get your change back in pesos. The exchange rate will vary day to day, but most places have a fixed rate posted. You can exchange currency at the airport, but an easy way to get pesos is to simply withdraw from an ATM at any local bank branch.

Banks and ATMs

Local banks include Banamex (Citi Group), BBVA, Banorte, Santander, BanRegio and HSBC. Bank ATMs give the daily exchange rate (best possible rate). When using an ATM pay close attention to what currency you're withdrawing and try to get as much cash as possible to avoid higher fees.

Cash vs. Cards

Visa, MasterCard and American Express are generally accepted, but you may run into local, cash-only establishments. Be sure to always ask beforehand and carry a bit of cash just in case. Keep in mind most businesses will accept US dollars and your bank may charge international fees if you choose to swipe.
