Q: Should I stay in Cabo San Lucas or San Jose Del Cabo?

A:That all depends on what you are planning to do on your trip, but at the end of the day it’s only a 25-30 minute drive from San José del Cabo to Cabo San Lucas, so you can easily go from one destination to the other.

Cabo San Lucas is a great option for those who want the typical Mexican resort town experience. There are great dining options for every budget, and if you’re here for the party this is where you want to be. One of the main staples of Cabo San Lucas is the beautiful and energetic marina which is lined with restaurants, bars, and shopping opportunities. The marina is also the main departure point for water taxis to the iconic Arch at Land’s End. The main beach is El Médano which is safe for swimming and full of restaurants and beach clubs.

San José del Cabo on the other hand is a very tranquil and traditional Mexican town, but with plenty of large resorts. The San José del Cabo Art Gallery District is a lively area in San José’s historic downtown which has internationally renowned galleries, traditional Mexican art and crafts stores, jewelry stores, restaurants, and more. Also in historic downtown, the main plaza’s church, town hall and large Mexican flag standing tall make you feel like you’re living a true Mexican experience. The beach in San José is mostly dangerous for swimming, although on some days the waves can be on the smaller side.

And then there is The Corridor; this highway that connects Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo has been developed in the past years and new large and luxurious resorts have sprung up. Staying in The Corridor is a good option if you’re planning on enjoying the resort you’re staying at and not planning on leaving much (many of these resorts offer all inclusive stays) and it is also great because you can be in the middle of both destinations (about 15 minutes to each one). Some of the beaches are swimmable but some can be dangerous.
