Transportation and Traveling in Los Cabos

There are several basic things to consider when planning a trip to Los Cabos in Mexico. Naturally, one of these considerations is finding the right rental to call home for the duration of your stay. At Seaside Mexico, we can help you find the perfect luxury house to rent during your vacation in Los Cabos. Transportation is another important consideration. While in Los Cabos, travel can be as simple as using your own two feet. If your plans involve staying in either San Jose del Cabo or in Cabo San Lucas and visiting sites that are in town, then walking might be the best option for you. Indeed, walking is a common choice for tourists staying in our luxury condos. If your vacation plans include exploring all of Los Cabos from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo, transportation in a motor vehicle may be more suited to your desires.

Upon arriving at the airport, you will find there are several possible ways to arrive at your rental in Cabo San Lucas. Transportation options from the airport include airport shuttle vans and taxis. Taxis are also an option for getting around town once you’re there, particularly for people who may have difficulty walking or those who simply prefer a leisurely ride over a stroll. When considering a taxi, keep in mind that their rates are often high, especially when driving from one town to the next. In addition, taxis around town may be in the form of vans that can hold a group of passengers.

When it comes to traveling from one town to the other, you’ll need to travel down what is known as The Tourist Corridor or The Corridor. The Corridor is a four lane highway that’s approximately 20 miles long and stretches between San Jose Del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas. Along this coastal stretch of land, there are numerous spots for tourists to visit, including beaches, restaurants, and golfing. If you’re traveling along the corridor from San Jose Del Cabo or Cabo San Lucas, transportation options include not only taxis, but also buses and car rentals. To rent a car in Mexico, you’ll need to have a valid driver’s license from the state in which you’re currently living. Drivers from outside of the Mexico are required to purchase Mexican liability insurance before driving on the roads and highways, because American insurance is not valid in Mexico. Car rental offices can be found in airports and in the town of Cabo San Lucas. Travel safety is an important consideration for individuals who choose to rent cars in Los Cabos. Drivers should be prepared for what may be a more aggressive style of driving than what they are accustomed to. When driving a rental, you’ll also want to make sure you have enough gas, know where you are going, and know how to get there. In addition, you may want to be able to read some Spanish, as street signs in Mexico are typically not in English.

Buses are another Cabo transportation option that is both common and convenient. In fact, you’ll find that there are numerous bus stops or terminals located around Los Cabos, and bus rides can take you up and down the Tourist Corridor and to all the beaches along the way. On the plus side, fares are relatively inexpensive and most buses will stop wherever they are requested to stop. Unfortunately, this can also be a down side: traveling by bus can be slower than renting a car. To get to your destination faster, there are express buses that only drive to a specific destination, with no stops on the way.
