Where is Los Cabos?

”Los Cabos” is located at the southern tip of Mexico’s Baja California Sur peninsula. It comprises two towns: San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas separated by several miles, creating a ”resort corridor” with many hotels and golf courses.

To visit this beautiful destination, you would fly into Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) just 20 minutes from San Jose del Cabo.

San Jose del Cabo

San Jose del Cabo is where the government of Los Cabos municipality and the Town Hall is. It is a laid-back town with cobblestone streets and a central square with many historic Colonial buildings from the 18th century.

Galleries, restaurants, and artisan jewelry shops create a relaxed bohemian vibe where the art scene is truly appreciated by art collectors. This is the perfect place to stroll in the evening around a true colonial town that seems to be lost in time.

Cabo San Lucas

Cabo San Lucas is centered around the marina and entertainment area. The main attractions are water sports, nightlife, top restaurants, and the famous whale season. The iconic natural stone arch ”El Arco” and Medano Beach are just minutes away from here.

What once was a completely rural, remote, and undeveloped fishermen’s town, it’s now one of the most famous beach spots in the world. This is where most visitors choose to stay, referring to it just as ”Cabo”.

While Cabo San Lucas is the more popular city with exciting nightlife and a bustling downtown, San Jose del Cabo is a quieter destination with traditional Mexican charm.

2. Perfect Weather

Unlike many other destinations, the weather in Los Cabos is consistent year-round. With mostly warm temperatures between 82°F (28°C) and 91°F (33°C) during the day and evenings cooling down between 55°F (13°C) and 75°F (24°C). The mild weather means you can get married outdoors any time of year!

With more than 350 days of sun a year, it’s very unlikely you will experience rain during your trip, and what’s best, the chances of needing to change your wedding plans to an enclosed backup venue are literally 4%! Although May to October is the ”rainy” season, the possibility of experiencing a heavy storm or even actual rain, is very low.
