Top 4 Reasons to Retire in Los Cabos

Top 4 Reasons to Retire in Los Cabos

Whether you’ve won the lottery, just sold your Silicon Valley start-up, or have been working hard for the past four decades, everyone dreams about where they’d like to spend their golden years. Here are our top four reasons to consider retiring to Los Cabos, a Land’s End hideaway at the tip of the Baja Peninsula.

  1. Location, Location, Location

    It’s a real estate mantra, but it’s also the No. 1 reason to retire in Los Cabos. People are attracted to the idea of retiring abroad, but not every overseas destination is a good fit. When you consider the practical implications of living in a foreign place, all factors must be considered. Because most folks enjoy spending the holidays with their families, access and logistics are important. With direct flights to cities across North America, Cabo has excellent connectivity. You can be home in no time—or even better, your winter-weary family members can be with you in no time.

  2. Natural Beauty, Perfect Weather

    Los Cabos has a rare mountain-desert-ocean ecosystem. Ringed by tall stony mountains, with sheer granite cliffs that tower above the Sea of Cortez at Land’s End, Cabo is truly spectacular. Because of the water’s proximity, a multitude of watersports is available, from sport fishing and surfing to snorkeling and sailing. In addition, the desert landscape offers an abundance of land activities, from hiking and mountain biking to ATV tours. As for the climate, Cabo boasts 340 sunny days a year, low humidity and cooling sea breezes.

  3. Choices for Everyone

    Los Cabos has two distinct personalities. There’s Cabo San Lucas, a deep-sea fishing mecca and party-hearty capital, its bustling marina lined with shops, restaurants and nightclubs. It’s also home to Medano Beach, a two-mile crescent of sand with calm, swimmable waters and a fine view of the rocks at Land’s End. A 20-mile ‘corridor’ links Cabo San Lucas with San Jose del Cabo, a charming colonial town circa 1730 that’s known for its narrow cobblestone streets, thriving arts scene, and cozy restaurants. Quiet, relaxed and traditional, it’s the yin to the other town’s yang.

  4. A Welcoming Place

    One of the best things about retiring to Los Cabos is citizens. Whether you’re a local, a frequent visitor or a first-time tourist, the Mexican residents of Los Cabos extend a genuinely warm welcome. Because the economy is driven by tourism, hospitality skills have been honed over the years, but the culture takes great pride in making visitors feel at home. Mexicans are family-oriented, very friendly and eager to help. They’ll even suffer through your fractured gringo Spanish with a smile. At the end of the day, people make the place. Ex-pats who’ve retired to Cabo love the perfect weather and the outdoor lifestyle, but they extoll the virtues of Los Cabos based on the warm, welcoming Mexican culture.
