Getting Around Town:

Walking is the fastest and most efficient way to negotiate Cabo's streets. The center of town is small and compact.

Driving in Cabo San Lucas can be a challenge depending on the time of year. The streets, especially during the college spring break months of March and April, are clogged with vehicles all in search of parking. Free public parking can be found at the south end of Blvd Marina, but it generally fills quickly. Adding to the driving mayhem is that there are no street numbers, causing first time visitors to crawl along in their cars squinting out their windows for addresses that cannot be found.

Cabo San Lucas Taxis are numerous and can be found at most hotels. Marina in Front of Plaza Las Glorias ( +52 624 143 3290 ) and Cardenas y Zaragoza ( +52 624 143 0104 ) are two of the more prominent companies in town. Rides around town cost USD3-USD5, while journeys north into the Cabo San Lucas Corridor area average USD20. Settle on a price for the taxi ride with the driver before you get into the cab and stick to it. If you don't you will likely find the price has doubled by the time you reach your destination.

Buses service all of Cabo and the surrounding area. Most bus drivers when asked will stop at specific beaches and hotels.
