Cabo vs Cancun: Where to Take your Next Mexico Vacation?

Cabo vs Cancun

Planning your next vacation is exciting, but you might be indecisive, because you want the experience to be just perfect. After all, most people aren’t able to escape their everyday lives as often as they want. If you have narrowed it down to Cabo vs Cancun, you are already headed in the right direction, but Cabo is hands down, a more luxurious destination. Take a look and decide for yourself:

Cabo vs Cancun

The Location
Where they are located on the map is probably the most obvious distinction between them. While they are both located on a peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is positioned at the base of a mountain range on the Baja peninsula, giving it beautiful views from every angle. It is also closer to the U.S. than Cancun, which is located further south of the hemisphere on the Yucatan peninsula. Why waste hours on a long flight, when you can spend those extra hours soaking in the beauty Cabo has to offer?

The Climate
You are usually guaranteed sunshine in both regions outside of the rainy season, but other than warmth, the climate is different. Los Cabos is cooler and drier, similar to the beautiful weather in Southern California. Cancun is humid and in the Gulf of Mexico, which creates a greater chance of hurricanes and heavy storms. Cabo only has on average 10 rain days per year.

The Hotels
Hotel accommodations are probably important as you decide between Cabo vs Cancun. Most of the hotels in both regions are located on the beach, but what you might not know is the difference in how they are designed. Cancun is similar to Miami, where the hotels are tall and sit close to each other for literally, miles. Los Cabos’ hotels are shorter and more spread out, making it less active and congested than Cancun. You can definitely find peace and relaxation in Cabo vs Cancun.

For those looking to travel on a budget, Cancun is the way to go. But if you lean towards the more luxurious things in life, especially on vacation, Cabo has a number of Latin America’s and world top ranking resorts. The towns in this region have successfully created an upscale destination for tourists. Accommodations such as the Fiesta Americana All-Inclusive Resort or the fantastic Capella Resort feature a myriad of first-class amenities.

The Food
You will experience authentic Mexican food in Cancun and Cabo, but the presence of world renowned chefs that have 5 star restaurants in the Los Cabos area is rapidly rising. Cabo started over a hundred years ago so you will find that the locals are amazing at making seafood dishes.  You will be delighted by unique Mexican flavors you might not have ever imagined.

    LuxLife made our trip super easy and wonderful. I really appreciate how proactive they were to help organize any excursions we wanted, provide restaurant recommendations, and coordinate our car service to and from the airport. Everything went smoothly as soon as we landed in Cabo, and we couldn’t ask for anything more.

Cabo vs Cancun
Things to do
While the beaches are more swimmable in Cancun, Cabo offers some of the best surfing, golfing and deep sea fishing opportunities in the world. Due to the more upscale ambiance, smaller population and less commercialization Cabo creates a culture that is more relaxing and elegant. Whether you want to experience one of the world’s only wine spas or explore the landscape in Los Cabos, the feel is much calmer than Cancun’s lively and party-like environment.
