But… It’s a bit confusing. You’re planning a trip to Cabo, and you want to know: Is Los Cabos the same as Cabo San Lucas?
Los Cabos is actually a reference to the two most famous towns in the area – Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. Both are relatively close to each other.
Way down at the bottom of the peninsula, in the Mexican state of Baja California Sur, you’ll find the two towns: Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo.
The smaller of the two is San Jose del Cabo.
Its larger sibling, Cabo San Lucas, is wild by comparison. It is much more of an international party-centric place, with bars and clubs littering its downtown area.
Beautiful weather Sun, sun, sun. Cabo is quite literally one of the sunniest places in the world.
A variety of whales (mainly humpback) migrate past the Baja California Peninsula, often passing right by Cabo, making it surprisingly easy to see whales. Your chances of seeing one are high.
