Cabo San Lucas Car Rental
Unfortunately, taxi fares are exceptionally high in both Cabo San Lucas and the Los Cabos area in general. This can make travelling into the city from the Corridor quite expensive. As a result, many people traveling to Cabo San Lucas choose to rent a car. Having a rental car not only allows you to better explore the Los Cabos area, but it also gives you the opportunity to visit attractions outside of Los Cabos. Such attractions include Todos Santos and La Paz.
In order to rent a car in Cabo San Lucas you will need to be in possession of a valid driving license and able to pay for your rental vehicle on credit card. In addition, most rental companies will only rent out vehicles to individuals who are at least 25. While it is possible to find some companies which are willing to rent out cars to those younger than 25, they will charge you extra for this convenience.
In order to get the best deal for your car rental and to increase your likelihood of getting the car you want, it is vital that you make your car rental arrangements before your trip. This can be done online or by contacting a major U.S. car rental company which has car rental offices based in Cabo San Lucas. On average, you can expect renting a small car with automatic transmission from a major U.S. company to cost around $420 per week.
Top Things to do in Cabo San Lucas
There is no doubt that Cabo San Lucas attracts those who enjoy a bit of partying. So, it should come as no surprise that this location is home to one of the most famous nightclubs on the planet. Cabo Wabo is owned by musician Sammy Hagar and will definitely leave a lasting impression. From dancing to live music and fine dining, there is indeed something here for everyone. It should also be mentioned that truly immortal names in the rock genre can regularly be seen!
Glass-bottom boat rides are another attraction that has to be seen to be believed. Excursions that will take visitors out to a famous rock formation known as El Arco (literally “The Arch”) provide stunning views of the marine life below. It is not uncommon to witness schools of dolphins or even the occasional whale farther out at sea. The rocks are truly majestic in their splendor and one of the most unique features of El Arco is that it is bordered on one side by the Pacific Ocean and on the other by the Sea of Cortez.
For anyone who enjoys a bit of surfing, Cabo San Lucas should already be quite famous. The waves here can grow to be quite massive, so those without experience should take lessons before trying their luck. One stretch of beach known as “Zipper’s” is famous throughout the world for its wonderful sets and seemingly endless pipelines. For those who may not be keen on getting pummeled by the surf, it is just as fun to sit back at a local “chiringuito” (beach bar) and observe the experts work their magic. Or, one can just as easily take a stroll up and down these sandy shores and marvel at the wonders of nature.
