Located at the very tip of Mexico’s Baja California, Cabo San Lucas – or ‘Cabo’ – is famous for partying and playing golf. But while it might be a popular Hollywood haunt, you don’t need an A-lister’s budget to spend the night here, with dozens of affordable resorts and hotels peppered across the town.

Cabo San Lucas is one of two resort towns that make up the perennially sunny Los Cabos municipality on the Baja California peninsula. It’s the most developed neighbourhood in the region, famed for its rock’n’roll nightclubs and bars, exhilarating watersports and sprawling shopping mall. Away from the thrumming downtown and marina, there are quieter patches to explore too, where you’ll find laid-back restaurants and sleepier sand-fronted hotels. We’ve selected five affordable resorts and hotels in Cabo San Lucas that offer the best of both worlds. 

Solmar Resort 

Located in one of the district’s most covetable areas, Solmar Resort is a real steal. The hotel offers all-suite, beach-front accommodation just 10 minutes from downtown Cabo San Lucas. Guestrooms are simple but stylish with private balconies, cable TV, air-conditioning and a coffee-maker. There are three onsite restaurants for lazier days and an outdoor pool for when you tire of the Pacific. The hotel organises exhilarating extras too, from sport fishing to whale watching. The oceanside spa is a must-visit too. Rooms from $135 per night.
