Is Cabo San Lucas a Safe Place to Travel?

The resorts in Los Cabos are second to none. With luxurious accommodations and great prices, it's no wonder why Los Cabos is a top destination for many U. S. travelers.

But with the recent rise in violent crime in certain areas, travelers may be wondering if it's safe to visit Cabo San Lucas. At the tip of the Baja California peninsula, Cabo San Lucas is one of Mexico's most famous destinations, offering travelers an escape paradise for everything from family vacations to weddings and spring break parties. The State Department recently issued an updated travel advisory to Mexico regarding U. tourists traveling to Mexico, giving it a Level 2 travel advisory on a scale of 1 to 4, which means “proceed with caution”.

Parts of Mexico where drug cartel violence is at its worst have been on the do not go list, with a level 4 warning not to go. Mexico has confirmed 60 cases of smallpox, but there have been no deaths from monkeypox in Mexico. People with monkeypox have a rash that may be located on or near the genitals (penis, testicles, lips and vagina) or anus (eyelet) and could be in other areas, such as the hands, feet, chest, face, or mouth. Symptoms of monkeypox usually begin within 3 weeks of exposure to the virus and usually last 2 to 4 weeks.

The U. government advises all citizens to exercise greater caution in the state of Baja California Sur, which includes the tourist areas of Cabo San Lucas, San José del Cabo and La Paz. Most non-citizen visitors to the U. will still have to show proof of vaccination against Covid-19 before flying to the US.

While there are travel restrictions elsewhere in Mexico, Los Cabos and the entire state of Baja California Sur have no travel restrictions, but they do have less severe travel restrictions.Your safety in Cabo San Lucas is a top priority for Los Cabos tourism, so if anything happens, your resort and the appropriate authorities will help you resolve any issues and answer any questions about safety in Mexico. While exploring the city, be careful and avoid displaying a large amount of money or wearing expensive jewelry. These items, as well as important travel documents, can be kept in your safe at the resort.If you're going out at night, stay with a group and don't go on your own, especially if you're a woman. While Mexico is safe, you should take safety precautions no matter where you travel - it's important to keep them in mind even in Cabo San Lucas.
