This Mexican Destination Is Becoming The New Most Visited Place In The Country

Due to the popularity of Cancun, Tulum and other Riviera Maya attractions, Los Cabos had played only a minor role in the Mexican tourism industry for many years. Sun-seekers who had been south of the border in the past, who were utterly fascinated with the Caribbean Sea’s crystal clarity and expanding resort industry, passed the place by despite its enormous potential.

As time passed, however, the Riviera Maya started to lose some of its appeals due to mass tourism and continued price increases, while “The Capes,” which include both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo, gained popularity as a much more laid-back alternative not yet overtaken by the masses.

As a result, it climbed up the rankings to become Mexico’s second most popular seaside destination in 2022, just behind Cancun. From January to December last year, 4 million passengers arrived at Los Cabos International, Baja California Sur’s main airport. That’s still far below Cancun’s total of 8 million, but this is when things really get exciting:

Once again, it is evident that the 4 million mark is already 20% higher than the number registered in 2021. In terms of growth, the Capes are still on the rise. In other words, they have overtaken Cancun, Mexico City and Puerto Vallarta as the Mexican destination with the fastest growth.

With a 32.6 percent increase in visitors during the Northern Hemisphere summer compared to the Caribbean hub’s far more modest 26.6 percent, Los Cabos was already showing signs that it was on track to surpass Cancun in terms of growth as of September 2022.

The abundance of opulent lodging options and distinctive experiences that Los Cabos has to offer-often combined with breathtaking natural beauty and close proximity to the beaches-helps to contribute to the city’s unique feeling. The twin cities, which have the “greatest presence” of healing resorts in the Americas, were recently crowned Mexico’s top wellness destination.

There’s no denying that Cabo has carved out a niche for itself in the high-end tourism industry, appealing to those who are not only willing to spend money on an all-inclusive vacation, but also expect some exclusivity and true relaxation. It may not be cheap, but there’s no denying that the high-quality service and relaxed atmosphere, as opposed to the chaotic party scene of the Riviera Maya, have helped the Capes.
