Cabo San Lucas Hotels
Cabo San Lucas has an excellent range of accommodation options to suit every taste and budget. Hotel prices in Cabos San Lucas vary considerably according to the season. Indeed, during the resort’s peak season it is not uncommon for room rates to double. The resort experiences its peak season between November and May. In addition, the resort gets particularly busy around the beginning of April.
If you want to visit Cabo San Lucas during one of its busy periods, it is vital that you book your accommodation in advance. Not only will this lead to some cost savings but the best hotels tend to get booked up quickly.
Many of the large resorts that Cabo San Lucas has to offer can be found along Playa Solmar and Playa Medáno. In the center of the city you will find smaller locally-run hotels and bed and breakfasts which tend to be cheaper than the larger resorts and can offer a more authentic experience. In particular, there are plenty of budget and mid-range accommodations between Hidalgo and Guerrero. However, it is worth bearing in mind that Cabo San Lucas is the most expensive resort along the peninsula.
You will find the bulk of the area’s all-inclusive resorts along the Corridor. These resorts offer high-quality facilities and include the cost of all your onsite food and drinks in the price of your room. However, as there is often more demand than supply of accommodation in this desirable area, accommodation can be more expensive here than other areas.
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.
