Where to stay in Cabo San Lucas

Accommodations in Cabo San fall into two categories--those with easy beach access and those with a view. If you're mostly interested in swimming or diving, head to the neighborhood of El Medano Ejidal, where you can choose from a smorgasbord of luxury beach resorts and mid-range hotels. To take advantage of the area's dramatic scenery, look south to the cliff-top neighborhood of Pedregal, home to countless private rentals. For something more budget-friendly, check the streets in the city center, where the lack of sea views will be compensated with easy access to the city's best nightlife.
