There are two types of visitors to Los Cabos: tourists and travelers.
Tourists typically opt for big-name chains, brand names, all-inclusive hotels that offer an airbrushed version of México, from souvenir-shop sombreros to bottomless margaritas.
Travelers, on the other hand, prize independence, value, boutique one-of-a-kind accommodations and adventures. They seek an authentic sense of place. They want to experience the real Cabo, to explore off-the-beaten-path attractions, to sample regional cuisine and search out handmade arts and crafts.
For decades, the smart choice for discerning travelers has been Cabo Inn Hotel, a clean, comfortable, and muy affordable boutique lodging in the heart of downtown Cabo San Lucas.
Travelers from all over the world have stayed here: visitors from the U.S., of course, but also from Europe, Australia, Central and South America, and beyond.
There’s no secret why.
Cabo Inn Hotel is a central, value-oriented oasis, conveniently located “5 minutes from everywhere.” Guests have a short walk to Playa El Médano, Cabo’s largest and most popular beach; a short walk to the marina, the jumping off point for activities like sailing, fishing, snorkeling and diving; and a short walk to premier downtown shopping, dining and Cabo’s most popular nightlife destinations.
For those who seek the real Cabo, there is no better, more affordable and convenient place to stay.
But Cabo Inn’s charms aren’t solely related to its value and central downtown setting. The hotel itself is exceptional, aglow with vibrant colors, and awash in tropical foliage, showcasing stylish appointments and enchanting Mexican accents.
Lush vines seem to spill over the second-floor railing, hugging pillars as they cascade down to the lobby, artfully framing the 20 boutique rooms and suites that are laid out around the airy interior. Each of these accommodations has its creature comforts, to be sure, but they are also utterly distinctive, their creative, pleasing designs as uniquely realized as a fingerprint or snowflake. Evocative murals and stained-glass accents complement the custom-crafted furnishings, which range from colorful bedding and handmade chairs and cabinets to unusually framed mirrors and other sui generis works of art and artistry.
Rooms showcase their own playful personalities, but lest one think the attractions are merely surface level, the inn also offers the sort of standard features and conveniences one would expect at any fine lodging: spacious communal areas highlighted by a rooftop swimming pool and lounge area, air-conditioning, private parking and car rental recommendations and reservations, bilingual concierge service, special attentions for kids and pets, luggage storage, and myriad other small but important services and extras that take the stress out of travel.
The inn’s commitment to individualized decor and bespoke furnishings and fixtures is what makes it so special, however, and engenders such loyalty among its long-time clientele. This commitment reaches its ultimate expression in the two rooftop palapa suites, beautifully designed with traditional Mexican accents and appointments like palm roofs, palo de arco style craftsmanship, mosquito netting, handmade furniture and cabinets, vividly colored linens and blankets, bed runners and curtains. The premium suite even has its own private jacuzzi.
It’s the top, the highest level, both literally and figuratively.
The rooftop pool is a perfect place to socialize and make new friends, while the two rooftop palapas blur the line between indoor and outdoor spaces, transitioning easily from shaded sleeping quarters to sun-splashed, hammock-strung terraces overlooking the heart of the city.
Small wonder, then, that Cabo Inn has been called the most memorable vacation getaway in Cabo San Lucas, the place where low prices and high standards meet great amenities, including free Wi-Fi internet access, kitchen and bbq facilities, complimentary morning coffee, and a library of beach reading material.
How affordable is it? Room rates start as low as $39.95 for single occupancy in a standard room (refrigerator included), and even at the high end – a chic and roomy palapa suite with king-sized bed, terrace and private jacuzzi – it is supremely affordable, at less than $120 per night. Considering Cabo Inn’s litany of enchantments, there is no better bargain anywhere in Los Cabos.
During the 1950s, the historic building housed one of the Land’s End community’s most colorful brothels. Today, it boasts a different sort of local color, from its charming and eclectic decor to a friendly owner who often invites guests on early morning surfaris to some of Baja California Sur’s most breathtakingly beautiful and challenging surf breaks.
In addition to its many other attractions, Los Cabos is a paradise for surfers. Rippable year-round waves are found off both the Pacific and Sea of Cortés coasts, from Nine Palms and Shipwrecks on the Los Cabos municipality’s gorgeous East Cape to Pacific meccas Cerritos, San Pedrito and La Pastora.
Closer still are Monuments, an expert-level, left-hand point break with spectacular views of El Arco and the other granite monuments at Land’s End, and Zippers off Playa Costa Azul, sight of the area’s premier professional tournament, the annual WSL (World Surf League) sponsored Los Cabos Open of Surf.
But lazy days in the hammock or on a nearby beach, and early morning fishing trips are only a few among the many diversions and activities available to intrepid travelers. Cabo Inn offers information and recommendations on a vast array of outdoor adventures.
This isn’t just an accommodation option, but a lifestyle choice. Lounge around the pool, or go bungee jumping, see whales or save endangered sea turtles, or get a taste of Baja’s legendary off-road racing.
Concierge service is just one more reason to stay at Cabo Inn Hotel.
Remember: authentic and affordable, and “5 minutes from everywhere” convenience, plus concierge service.
