Getting Around in Los Cabos

The two main tourist areas in Los Cabos are the towns of Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. The towns are 28 kilometers, or approximately 20 miles, apart and the resort area between them is called the Tourist Corridor. There is only one main highway in Los Cabos, the Carretera Transpeninsular #1, which traverses the entire length of the Baja Peninsula, terminating in Cabo San Lucas.

Taxis can be expensive in Los Cabos so a good way to get from one town to the other is to take the bus.
The buses are a very convenient way to get from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo and the beaches and resorts in the Tourist Corridor. Three lines service the Los Cabos area - SuburCabos, InterBaja, and Transportes del Norte buses run every 15 minutes from 7 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. between Cabo San Lucas and Santa Anita (north of the International Airport), with bus stops in the Tourist Corridor. Fares are about $1.50 each way from town to town; drivers will change small bills. To get to Tourist Corridor beaches, tell the driver your beach when you board.  You can even take a bus from Cabo San Lucas to the airport for 15 pesos.  Be aware, however, that this bus stops about ¾ of a mile from terminal one at the airport so unless you are traveling with light baggage it is probably not the best idea as you will need to hoof it from the airport to the bus stop and vice versa.

If you do decide you rather take a taxi and are in Cabo San Lucas, here is a little tip.  The green and blue taxis you see all over downtown are the expensive taxis referred to above.   There is another taxi line called Eco Taxis but union rules prohibit them from pickups downtown.  So a good idea is to take a green or blue taxi to Soriana at Sendero Plaza.  There you can pick up an Eco Taxi which will take you to Palmilla or San Jose del Cabo probably for about the same price you paid to the big boys just from downtown Cabo to Sendero.
