Cabo San Lucas

My college aged daughter and several female friends are going to Cabo San Lucas on Spring Break. They are staying in the downtown area.

What is the best (read safest) way to get from the Airport (San Jose Del Cabo) to Cabo San Lucas? They cannot rent a car due to age and money restrictions.

Also, when in Cabo, what is the best way to get around?

I'm sorry I can't help -- this board is a little quiet when it comes to the Cabo area, but if no one else here helps, try the tripadvisor forum for Cabo San Lucas!
Good luck.

Hi Spokaneman,

Cabo is overwhelming safe. The cabs are reputable and speak English without problem.

Cabo in general is like Los Angeles South. Very high end, very expensive and caters to Americans extremely well.

As for getting around in town, most of everything is within a safe walkable area. Again, I wouldn't hesitate with cabs. If you're still nervous, tell them to have the hotel call the cab and tell that same cab when and where to pick them up. The hotels will look out for thier guests.

!Tenga un buen viaje!

Dear Spokane:

Cabs are readily available at the airport, but they must be prepared: they will be expensive since it is a 30-40 minute trip. Try asking the hotel to help out with arrangements. Cabo is fun for young people and they will have a great time. Where are they staying??

I'm not sure of the Hotel, but she said it is in a resort district in Cabo San Lucas.

I was in Cabo once, in 1993, we stayed in a hotel about 10 miles east of town. We had a rental car which was an experience in itself. I am sure Cabo has changed a lot in 13 years

There are several transportation companies that can be arranged in advance to Cabo San Lucas. Last time I went I used Transcabo - you walk right through the airport outside (avoiding the timeshare sharks). They are very professional and courteous.
Also, the cabs are very safe for getting around, but they may be staying close enough to walk everywhere.

Hope this helps!

I was in Cabo last year and found it's quite difficult to get around if you're not staying in downtown proper or the Old Town section. Most of the resorts are sprinkled along miles of coastal road, which means you can't walk anywhere if you're staying there. I was at Dreams and that was the case there. They did have very limited free shuttle service to downtown, but you had to plan carefully around their times. The cabs were expensive due to the distances involved.
