- Health and Safety: Millions of international visitors enjoy safe and enjoyable vacations in Los Cabos each year. With tourism at the heart of the local economy, great care is taken to show visitors warm hospitality. Use common sense when using ATMs as you would in any area. Avoid all illegal activities and narcotics. Be sure to stay hydrated and use sunblock, as sunburns are the most common ailment experienced by visitors. We recommend drinking only bottled water.
- Currency: Mexican pesos are the official currency. U.S. dollars are accepted in many locations in Los Cabos, however tighter regulations mean that they are not accepted everywhere and some hotels may not be able to exchange your U.S. currency to pesos and vice versa. ATMs (dispensing pesos at a fluctuating daily exchange rate plus a fee) are widely available and we recommend using official bank ATMs. Credit cards are widely accepted in many resorts and high end restaurants, but be sure to ask in advance. Contact your credit card companies prior to travel to inform them you’ll be out of the county.
- Mobile Phones: Many cellular providers allow roaming in Mexico (charges apply). If you plan to use your smartphone, be aware that additional data fees may apply while in Los Cabos so be sure to call your provider in advance of your trip to find out if service is available.
