April 26. It seems the Pacific gem of Los Cabos just keeps rising in popularity, as it claims the title of the third most-visited destination in Mexico and aims to be one of the top vacation spots for American travelers this summer.
A dual-offer comprising the resort cities of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, Los Cabos, or ‘The Capes’ have always been popular among U.S. travelers, particularly for Californians and other West Coast residents, due to both its beautiful nature and geographical proximity.
In December 2022, it rounded off the year with a historic 20% growth in visitor numbers, totaling over 4 million visitors, and for 2023, it is projected to increase a further 15% as a destination.
The Ministry of Tourism and Economy has revealed the first quarter of 2023 has already seen a 20% increase year-on-year compared to the same period in the preceding year, with more than 1,150,000 passengers recorded between January and April so far.
Hotel occupancy is high as well, with the average for the state of Baja California Sur, where Los Cabos is located, reaching 75 percent, 9 points higher than 2022’s figures, even though it’s already entered the off-season.
