How to Visit Cabo San Lucas as a Solo traveller

  • Cabo San Lucas is a city at the southern end of the Baja peninsula, Mexico. I had a solo trip to San Lucas last year and I'm gonna give you all info you need to know before visiting

How to get to Cabo San Lucas.

  • The easiest way is to fly to San Luca. I flew from Tijuana to Cabo San Lucas using Volaris ( I discovered its the cheapest airline after searching around).
  • Flight time: 2 hours, but there is a one hour difference between Tijuana and Cabo San Lucas.
  • Cost: $ 120 for a round trip. On other airlines, prices can be as high as $400.

The cheapest way to Get To San Lucas From The Los Cabos International Airport.

  • I took the Ruta Del desertio bus. Their buses are parked just outside both terminals, you can't miss them.
  • Cost: $5 ( 80 pesos) from the airport to the downtown Marina, the bus also makes a single stop at Puerto Paradiso mall before getting to the downtown Marina. You still pay the same fare regardless of where you alight.
  • Duration: 50 minutes.

Best way to get around San Lucas

  • Car rentals worked really great for me since I was staying around for two weeks. I got a standard car with Thrifty for $5 per day.
  • Taxis in San Lucas are really expensive and unmetered. The base fare for most drivers starts at $10. My Advice: Don't use taxis if you'll be staying in San Lucas for more than 3 days.

Budget activities to Do In San Lucas

  1. Visit Playa del Amor beach. Visiting the beach is free. From here you can make a tour of Los Cabos arch on an open glass kayak boat. Most tours start at $70 but negotiate the price, I landed a boat tour at $50.
  2. Visit Iglesia de San Lucas and town square - free
  3. Humpback whale watching - I did a tour for $70.
  4. Visit Playa Medano - it's San Lucas's most crowded beach but there are all sorts of cheap activities to do here for everyone.
