Tip 1: Book an all-inclusive resort in the hotel zone

Choosing an all-inclusive resort in Cabo is the best way to avoid any unpleasant situation, as you will have dining, entertainment, and accommodations in the same place without having to venture into an unknown city.

Being realistic, we know many travelers like exploring new destinations, so if you are leaving the resort, point two is essential.

Tip 2: Carry your emergency numbers, identifications, and passports

If you find yourself in a situation where you have to contact someone for help, make sure to have your resort's phone and address, as they will be ready and happy to solve any inconvenience you may encounter. Your ID or passport is also handy as you may be asked to identify if robbery is involved in your inconvenience. Cabo San Lucas is safe, but it is always better to be safe than sorry.

Tip 3: Stay aware of your surroundings 

This may be obvious to some. However, it is always good to remind travelers of the importance of this tip. Cabo San Lucas is a city with a low crime rate, but that doesn't mean it doesn't exist. So, the best thing you can do is visit tourist areas such as Downtown Cabo San Lucas, the Marina, the tourist corridor, and San José del Cabo, and avoid going outside the city alone, especially at night. Another way to make Los Cabos safe is to avoid wearing flashy jewelry and clothes, as a precaution.

Tip 4: Choose trustworthy transportation services

This tip is vital for keeping yourself safe if you are leaving your resort. If you are going on a tour, most resorts have on-site travel agencies to help you book your experience; they will take you to your destination and back to the resort, so check this option before booking any other service. 

If you wish to go alone, your resort can also help you call and book transportation from a safe taxi site.

Finally, you can use public transportation; it is cheaper and easy to understand. Other services you can benefit from are travel apps like Uber.

Tip 5: Get travel insurance

Travel insurance is more than just getting some money back for a missed flight or lost items; it also safeguards your medical expenses in case of illness during your vacation. Explore the insurance options provided by your credit card or ask at the front desk of your resort upon arrival.
