New Hotels in Los Cabos, Baja California Sur 2018 – 2019 – 2020 – 2021

Baja California Sur is the paradise for sports lovers and the wildlife, its climate is an earthly paradise for surfers and allows games of golf all year round, boat trips to the island Espiritu Santo for whale watching and swimming with sea lions. Its pristine beaches are excellent for water sports and also in Cabo Plumo, you can go diving in coral reefs. The Mexican State has the following destinations: La Paz, Loreto, Los Cabos, and Todos Santos.

Los Cabos is the most popular vacation destination in Baja California Sur, comprising the cities of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. It’s located all the way on the other side of Mexico, at the southern tip of Baja California, on the country’s western coast. Naturally, Los Cabos is popular with travelers from the west coast of the United States, while Cancún and Playa del Carmen are popular among East Coast travelers.

Just like the Riviera Maya, Los Cabos features fantastic beaches perfect for snorkeling, scuba diving, and a range of water sports. However, the scenery couldn’t be more different. In contrast to the lush jungles of Yucatán, Baja California features enchanting desert landscapes, magical stone cliffs, and winding arroyos (streams). It’s also further north, meaning a bit more variance in weather, ranging from the mid-60s in the winter to mid-80s in the summer.

Following our three articles about the new hotels of Quintana Roo; Tulum – Cozumel – Isla Holbox,  Riviera Maya, and Cancun, ftnnews now presents the new hotel openings in Baja California Sur, Mexico.
