Los Cabos Travel Guide

Emergencies

The state of Baja California Sur has instituted an emergency number for police and fire: 060. A second number, 065, is available to summon medical assistance. Both numbers can be used throughout the state, and there are English-speaking operators. For medical emergencies, Tourist Medical Assist Co. operates Balboa Hospital & Walk-In Clinic in Cabo San Lucas. Another option is air medical services—find a provider through the Association of Air Medical Services (AAMS); several of the U.S.-headquartered operations have bases around Mexico, so they can reach you more quickly.
