Without a doubt, the fastest growing tourist destination in Mexico is Los Cabos, a sunny
paradise surrounded by breathtaking deserts and gorgeous coastlines, that offer some of the
most varied activities and destinations in the entire country, ensuring that there is
something different to do in any place you visit.
Los Cabos consists of two cities; San José del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas, together create a
20-mile-long tourist corridor filled with luxurious resorts, golden beaches, world-class
golf courses, and a vibrant nightlife, all of this means that your medical tourism journey
will not only allow you to improve your overall health, it will let you relax and discover
the best that Mexico has to offer.
Each city provides a slightly different taste of Mexico; San José del Cabo offers a much
more traditional experience, and it’s full of local shops, restaurants and a Main Plaza that
has become the home to international and local artists; while Cabo San Lucas offers more
luxurious hotels and spas, however, the best part about Los Cabos is that you don’t have to
worry about deciding which of the cities to visit, they are less than 30 minutes apart,
meaning that in a single visit you’ll get to experience everything they have to offer you.
The Sea of Cortez and the Pacific Ocean surround both cities, creating unique opportunities
to enjoy your vacation, you can stay in the coast and enjoy the sun while being surrounded
by restaurants and street vendors, or join a boat tour that could take you to admire
“El Arco” or whale watching, and remember that Los Cabos is a fisherman’s paradise, with
great catches available all year long.
You can pay with US dollars, Credit/Debit cards on most restaurants and establishments. If
you pay with USD the exchange rate will be lower, our recommendation is to visit a foreign
exchange agency, a bank or an ATM to turn your currency into Mexican pesos, you’ll get a
better exchange rate this way.
