The short answer, in our view, is “yes.” But for a more thoughtful answer – including crime, health and safety stats, plus tips to help you stay safe – read our guide to safety in Cabo San Lucas.
Pretty well everyone who visits Cabo enjoys their vacation without incident (except maybe for the occasional sunburn and hangover from the wickedly good Mexican margaritas).
Generally speaking, Cabo is safe at night. That is, as long as you use common sense like not wandering down dark alleys or taking drinks from strangers.
We don’t like to drive on the main highways outside of Cabo at night. If we’ve rented a car for a day trip to Todos Santos or La Paz, we like to return before it’s dark.
The safest answer here would be “no.” Not all the water is bad, but it’s impossible to know for sure if the water you’re drinking is safe.
Los Cabos is known for its beautiful beaches. But not all of them are safe and swimmable.
Be sure to look for any posted warning signs on the beach to alert for these. And when walking along the beach, always keep an eye on the waves.
