Like it's neighbor, Los Cabos has beautiful beaches with breathtaking desert and ocean views. The climate here is delicious and makes for an indulgent vibe that is palpable in all parts of town.

Local Tips and Tricks for Los Cabos
If you don’t want to find empty or semi-empty venues don’t go out before ten, because clubs don’t generally get going before midnight. You can eat until late and then go out; after all, you are on vacation! Los Cabos is also known for its water sports, deep sea fishing, whale watching, golf courses, and restaurants.
Thankfully, there is a whole lot more to Cabo than country stars shilling stereotypes. Cabo San Lucas distinguishes itself from many other Mexican destinations with a variety of top-notch activities, including world-class dining, traditional eateries, lush golf courses, calm surf, epic sports fishing, every water sport imaginable and a wild-as-you-want-it nightlife. This unique travel destination pulls off a wonderful balance of contemporary luxury and local traditions. Cabo has become a favorite among travelers of all sorts, and it's not hard to see why.
Cabo San Lucas Gay Scene
Right at the tip of the Baja California peninsula lies Cabo San Lucas, one of the most popular resort destinations in Mexico. Jimmy Buffet and Sammy Hagar, who espouse their love of Cabo in various forms, made Cabo famous: Buffet with his Margaritaville and Hagar with his Cabo Wabo Cantina and tequila.
The gay scene in Cabo San Lucas is low-key, but very friendly. In recent years, many gays traveling to Mexico have been drawn away from some of the more popular destinations nearby, like Cancun and Puerto Vallarta, in favor of Cabo San Lucas. The sophisticated beach resort culture and the diversity of activities have gradually come to accommodate gay travelers, ensuring that any LGBTQ visitor will be able to feel right at home.

Gay-Friendly Nightlife in Cabo San Lucas
Cabo San Lucas has always had plenty of nightlife options. Sammy Hagar even named his tequila after the place, so you know the nightlife has to be good! Keep in mind that when it comes to nightlife in Latin America, things don't get going until rather late, so take a siesta after sunset, and head out to the clubs around eleven or midnight.

Local Tips, Tricks & News
There are three main areas to Cabo. San Jose del Cabo, the closest to the airport, is considered the Old Town. San Jose delivers the authentic Mexican experience, with its colonial architecture, art galleries and lively town square encompassing much of the laid-back ethos of Mexican life. Cabo San Lucas is the "Main Town," and provides a hub for most of the local. Here you will find the majority of the all-night party venues, as well as the oft-photographed Arch at Land's End. A highway called The Corridor connects Cabo's raucous party scene and San Jose's traditional elegance. This is where resorts, golf courses and super-luxury villas have spread like wildfire.
During the summer, Cabo is slightly cooler than San Jose, especially if the winds are blowing from the Pacific rather than the Gulf. Cabo is also less rainy than San Jose, although both cities can be affected by occasional summertime hurricanes. March through July is considered the dry season, although peak travel season is during the winter months of November to February. January is the driest of those months, making it one of the best times to visit for maximum sun!
