At the southern tip of Baja California you’ll find the resort area known as Los Cabos, with its main town called Cabo San Lucas. Unlike Puerto Vallarta and Acapulco, Los Cabos barely existed as of the late 1970s so it’s mostly a purpose-built resort district more like Cancun and without much real history.
Having suffered a fairly severe hurricane in late 2014, Los Cabos quickly repaired itself and has operated normally ever since. There are only about 100 hotels here (compared to about 400 in Cancun), so it’s still much smaller yet growing fast. Los Cabos is also where the rich and famous from Hollywood have been coming for some time now, so celebrity spotting here isn’t as hopeless as it is in the rest of Mexico.
From a price standpoint, Los Cabos is a bit more expensive than most other Mexican resort areas, but still quite reasonably by international standards. With its large share of 5-star tourists, there are also many very expensive restaurants and shops, but still plenty of places suited to smaller budgets as well.
