Cabo San Lucas Life and Visitor Travel Tips

(Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, Mexico)

Picture of the marina and cruise boatsCabo San Lucas does not actually contain any government-run tourist offices and similar information booths as such. The area's official tourist office is run by the independent Los Cabos Tourism Board and Hotel Association and features English-speaking staff.

Also worth noting, there is a wealth of time-share seller booths located along the Boulevard Marina, who will be happy to provide fairly in-depth information about local life, travel tips, various discount vouchers and maps, together with a sales pitch.

Language and Dialect

When holidaying in Cabo San Lucas, do try to communicate with the local Mexicans in their native language - Mexican Spanish. Based on traditional Castilian Spanish and very similar, the main differences are some extra words that have been adopted and the way that it is spoken. Some Cabo San Lucas locals do speak English at varying levels, although all will be pleased if you attempt to speak to them in Spanish. Therefore, be sure to pack your Spanish phrasebook and practice a few Spanish phrases before you leave. Some examples are below.
