Planning a trip to Cabo St Lucas doesn’t have to be overly challenging. No matter what you do, you will likely have an awesome time. However, knowing a few basic tips might help make your experience utterly amazing. The littlest details often have the biggest impact when it comes to enjoying your trip!

Take a look at these 6 must-know tips.

1. Plan Cabo St Lucas Transportation

When you head to Cabo, you’re going to need transportation. You shouldn’t wait until the last minute to plan this part. Here’s the thing: some of the buses and shuttles fill up quickly, and during peak seasons, it can be challenging to get a ride at the last minute.

Whether you plan to take a shuttle or you want to rent a car, you need to plan ahead. Many of the resorts do offer shuttles to and from the hotel, but it’s a good idea to double check this and get your flight times on the books. Booking your transportation early helps ensure that you will have a ride when you get there.

The primary airport used to go to Cabo is in San Jose, which is about 30 minutes away. There are shuttles, private drivers, and other options to get from point A to point B.

Of course, as part of your transportation, you also need to plan your flights. The transport from the airport to your resort should align with your flight arrival times, or at least pretty closely to them.

2. Choose a Great Place to Stay

Once you plan your timing, you need to figure out where you want to stay. You may choose something based on a deal you find or things you’ve heard. You might also choose where you want to stay based on location or price. How you choose your accommodations is totally up to you.

You probably cannot find a bad place to stay in Cabo. There are tons of awesome choices, and this tourist destination knows how to give you a wonderful experience. Not every resort, hotel, or Airbnb will be the same, but you can find what works for you.

As you choose your place to stay, think of the accommodations that are important to you, as well as where you will be staying. Is this place convenient for the activities that you plan to do while you are there? These things might make a difference on your trip.

3. Make This Trip Yours

As you are doing your planning, you will find plenty of recommendations of things you absolutely must do. And while those things are most likely fantastic, they may not be what makes your trip delightful. Whatever you choose to do or not do while you’re in Cabo is completely up to you.

The things that make this trip amazing for others might not be your cup of tea. And that’s fine! Plan your trip and activities based on your interests and the details that appeal to you. If you don’t have the budget to do all of the activities, that’s all right. There are plenty of free and inexpensive things that you can enjoy while you are here.

In fact, just head on over to the free beaches. You can see some awesome wildlife from there, and the views are always stunning. Plan your trip around your preferences, not around what the rest of the world recommends.

Anything at home will be waiting there for you when you come back. But it doesn’t have to rest on your shoulders while you’re in Cabo. Put your toes in the water, a drink your hand, and let Cabo wash all your worries away for the time being.
