3 Reasons Los Cabos is the Fastest-Growing Destination in Mexico
In Los Cabos, rapid growth isn’t just an abstract concept or an impressive set of statistics, it’s a tangible, measurable fact. Not only is Baja California Sur’s southernmost municipality the fastest growing tourist destination in México, it’s also among the country’s fastest growing destinations for U.S. expats, and for seasonal residents who are buying second homes in the area.
One need only cruise the coastal highway between cape cities Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo to see the evidence of this explosive growth. There, a striking collection of new luxury resorts and residential developments are vying for the most breathtaking views of gorgeous golden sand and the glittering blue waters of the Sea of Cortez.
And that’s merely one of many coastal zones with ambitious new developments in progress.
Los Cabos, long the discerning snowbird’s preferred winter getaway spot, is suddenly hotter than ever, and no one seems in any hurry to go home. For many, in fact, it now is home.
Here are three reasons why…
Climate & Setting

The weather isn’t just sunnily, palm tree perfect when frigid winter temperatures are buffeting much of the U.S. With an average of 350 days of warm sunshine annually, just about every day is perfect in Los Cabos.
But it isn’t just the temperate year-round climate that’s attracting new residents, it’s the jaw-dropping scenery. Surrounded on two sides by water – Land’s End in Cabo San Lucas is the symbolic demarcation between the Pacific Ocean and Sea of Cortez – and with an interior that segues seamlessly from picturesque playas to stark, cactus-framed desert landscapes and rugged mountains, Los Cabos is one of the most spectacularly beautiful and geographically diverse places on earth. Legendary French explorer and naturalist Jacques Cousteau once called the Sea of Cortez “the world’s aquarium,” and the area’s wealth of natural wonders are always on display, both on land and beneath the sea.
Lifestyle & Amenities

Los Cabos’ varied terrains translate to abundant activities and lifestyle pursuits, from the area’s famed big-game sport fishing and year-round surfing to mountain biking and off-road racing. The most popular activities, however – at least in recent years – have been leisurely pastimes like golf and spa visits.
No surprise, really, given the incredible options.
No place outside the golf’s ancestral home of Scotland has more world-class courses in such close proximity as Los Cabos. The cape cities boast over a dozen top courses from legendary names like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, three of which are currently ranked among the 100 best in the world.
Spas too are abundant, not to mention abundantly pampering. In annual rankings from Travel + Leisure, Los Cabos dominates rankings of the top spas in Latin America and the Caribbean.
Overall Quality of Life

Beautiful weather, gorgeous natural settings, and a bevy of luxury amenities and lifestyle options are all very persuasive arguments for the area’s high quality of life…but that’s only scratching the surface.
Los Cabos has a lower cost of living than the U.S., and significantly lower list prices for coastal real estate; meaning it’s possible to buy the home of your dreams for a fraction of what it would cost in the U.S.
Add it all up and the real question isn’t why are so many people moving to Los Cabos, but why isn’t everybody?
