The city of Cabo San Lucas is located towards the far south of the state of Baja California Sur - the youngest state in Mexico which spans across the bottom of the Baja California peninsula. It was once a quiet and remote fishing village before major tourism expansion took place, transforming Cabo San Lucas into a world-renowned tourist destination.
Cabo San Lucas is divided into three main areas - San Jose del Cabo, Cabo San Lucas and The Corridor. San Jose del Cabo - also referred to as the Old Town - is easily accessible to the airport and offers an abundance of new accommodation options to choose from, yet in the atmosphere of traditional Mexico. Cabo San Lucas is known as the "Main Town" and is located about 20 miles away from the airport. It offers a number of attractions including the popular arch - El Arco. The Corridor is the name given to the highway which connects San Jose del Cabo and Cabo San Lucas and is lined with several resorts, hotels and luxury golf courses.
Cabo San Lucas is home to various prominent landmarks and monuments, with popular attractions including Land's End, the Cultural Centre of Cabo San Lucas and a 300 year old Church of San Lucas. Water sports are a common activity in the city, in addition to scuba diving and fishing.
The main airport serving Cabo San Lucas is the Los Cabos International Airport which is one of the busiest airports in Mexico. The airport has three terminals and is located about a 45 minute drive away from Cabo San Lucas. The airport handles several airlines and millions of passengers throughout the year.
With no known Halal restaurants in Cabo San Lucas available, access to Halal food in Cabo San Lucas will be quite difficult. Though a number of seafood and vegetarian dishes are available at several restaurants, Muslim travellers should note that animal fat is used during the preparation of many dishes and it is highly recommended that you enquire with restaurant owners about the preparation of food prior to dining.
Access to prayer facilities in Cabo San Lucas will not be easy. There are no known mosques in Cabo San Lucas and the best option for Muslim travellers is to use the privacy of their room to pray during prayer times or make use of a private space while travelling outdoors.
