BEST LOS CABOS MEXICO AIRPORT TRANSPORTATION OPTIONS

When it comes to booking transportation to & from the Los Cabos International Airport (SJD), Rich & Kitch highly recommend booking a private ride with Vivo Luxury Services (aka VIVOLX). While we do have a partnership with them & can offer you a discount when you book with code: KITCHENSINKIT, we partnered with VIVOLX since they truly are amazing to work with!


From their professionalism, credibility, trustworthiness, & timeliness to name a few, it’s easy to trust VIVOLX to get you to & from the Los Cabos International Airport. VIVOLX offers luxurious SUVs & vans that include nice amenities (like built-in cell phone chargers & bottled water), too!

In terms of what to expect when you book transportation with VIVOLX, when you arrive at the Los Cabos airport, your driver will be waiting for you in a designated spot holding a sign with your name on it. When it's time to leave your resort or private villa, your driver will arrive at your location to get you to the airport safely & on time. VIVOLX service is truly top-notch & even better with a discount using code: KITCHENSINKIT

If you are having your destination wedding in Cabo, & need a ride for you & your guests to get to your unique destination wedding venue or rehearsal dinner restaurant, VIVOLX offers these services, too! Please contact us here if you’d like us to connect you with VIVOLX to discuss these services for your destination wedding! If you choose to contact VIVOLX on your own, please mention that @kitchensinkit sent you!

Depending on the resort you book your stay with, the resort may offer you a discount on a ride from the airport using a shared shuttle bus service. While this could save you a little money & it isn’t a bad option, it could take you longer to get to your resort from the airport since the shared shuttle might stop at a few different resorts before dropping you off at yours. We’ve taken a shared shuttle bus before, but think that no time should be wasted during your trip to Los Cabos, so this is not our preferred method of airport transportation.

Another transportation option to get you from the airport to your hotel is to grab a taxi when you land. We have done this before, but it costs almost as much as booking a private ride ahead of time, so you might as well just book your private ride with VIVOLX using code KITCHENSINKIT & you will be more comfortable & arrive at your resort/villa in style vs. pulling up in a taxi.

Lastly, if you are up for some Cabo adventures, you can rent a car! We highly recommend Cactus rental cars at the airport. They have the best service & prices! When you arrive at the airport, they will pick you up in their airport shuttle to take you to their rental car location. When it is time to leave, you'll return your rental car, then they'll drive you back to the airport in it! If you plan on staying in Los Cabos for more than 1 week, we do think it is worth renting a car so you can explore all that Los Cabos has to offer!

GETTING AROUND LOS CABOS

Now that we’ve touched on a few transportation options to get you to & from the Los Cabos International Airport, these options can also be used for getting around Los Cabos. While you can hire a driver through VIVOLX or rent a car, the easiest way to get around Cabo (if you are staying at a resort) is to request a taxi from your resort’s bellhop. Most resorts have taxis waiting nearby, so it is very easy for the bellhop to signal for one. When you are exploring downtown Cabo San Lucas & you are ready to return to your resort, it is easy to grab a taxi, too, as they wait in designated spots around the city. (P.S. Cabo taxis are road-soda friendly - cheers!)

If you are staying at a private villa, Uber is a great option to consider for getting around Los Cabos, too. Ubers are extremely cheap in Mexico (our cheapest Uber ride was less than $2 (where a taxi ride would have been $20 since taxi prices are determined by zone) so make sure to leave a cash tip since your Uber driver deserves it! From our experience taking Ubers in Cabo, most drivers only speak Spanish, so make sure you have the Google Translate app downloaded on your phone if you don’t speak any Spanish.

Beyond taking rides around Los Cabos, it is also safe to walk around on the streets and/or the beach. While bad things can happen anywhere, Cabo is the safest place in Mexico that we’ve traveled to. Los Cabos is located on the tip of the Baja California Peninsula making it a little more difficult to get to and there is an established police presence to protect Los Cabos. Cabo also thrives on tourism, which makes it Cabo's top priority to keep tourists safe. Richie & I love running through the city & on Medano Beach, so please don’t be scared to explore Cabo on foot!



BONUS TIP!

While traveling by boat isn’t the recommended way to get around Cabo, we highly recommend that you book a boat excursion during your trip since experiencing Cabo from the water is the best!!! The Rich & Kitch favorite is Cabo Sailing Ocean Adventures & VIVOLX can take you to & from your yacht excursion! Chartering a private mini yacht is one of our favorite Cabo excursions. ⁠Your charter starts with a ride by the famous Cabo Arch, followed by an hour-long cruise to Santa María Bay for snorkeling. ⁠If you will be in Cabo between the months of December to April, you may be lucky enough to see whales, too! The snorkeling in Santa María Bay has lots of fish & some of the prettiest turquoise water, but if snorkeling isn't your thing, you can enjoy sunbathing on the boat. After snorkeling, you'll be served a lunch of sandwiches, fruit, quesadillas, chips, salsa, & guac. There's a 3-hour open bar during the excursion, too! ⁠

As luxury travel advisors, this is an excursion we can book for you, so please contact us here to book your private yacht charter! And if you need a bigger yacht for your group, we partner with a variety of companies that we can book for you, so fill out our form linked here & we'd be happy to help!
