Do I need a car in Cabo San Lucas?

The easiest answer to this question is NO.  You definitely do not need a car in Cabo San Lucas.  There are many options for getting around the city and public transportation is easy and cheap.  With that said, driving your own vehicle is certainly a convenience and it makes more sense if you find yourself traveling to areas that are not popular amongst tourists.  In addition, many guard gated communities and resort developments have the possibility of a long distance to the home, after passing the guard gate.  If you took public transportation to the front of the community, then you could end up having a pretty significant walk to the home you are trying to get to.

If you don’t have a car in Cabo San Lucas, then how else do you get around?  There are several ways including taxi, Uber, private transportation and bicycle.  Although these different methods are not great for everyone, they are fairly available and easy to use.

Bicycles in Cabo are easy to get around with, but not on the highway.  If you’re needing to get around downtown San Lucas or in the historic town of San Jose, bicycles are great.  However, if you need to get back and forth between the two towns, then don’t rely on a bicycle.  Using this method will require you to use it on the Carretera Transpeninsular and this is not a safe choice.

When guests ask our team, “Do I need a car in Cabo San Lucas?” we always tell them to choose private transportation.  This can be arranged by your personal concierge.  Each concierge will provide guests with an itinerary and from their can begin to prepare all of your private transportation needs.  It might cost a few dollars more than expected, but you will be driven around PRIVATE!  And if you ask in advance, the vehicle will be stocked with cold drinks and/or beers.  Private transportation is safe, convenient and comfortable.  When you’re on vacation, doesn’t all of this—at a slightly higher cost—just make so much sense?

In addition to all of the options above, it is also important to consider the number of people in your group.  If you have more than 4 people, then you will need more than a standard car.  Renting an SUV in Cabo is more expensive as there is a limited amount available through rental car companies.  This means you will be spending a premium on your rental vehicle anyways.  If that is the case, you can hire a sprinter van that can hold up to 22 people.  This will be helpful for groups that have a lot of luggage, surf boards, golf clubs and more.  These are all very important elements to consider, which your Platinum Personal Concierge will work through with you to ensure your vacation is easy and effortless.

If you are still wondering Do I need a car in Cabo San Lucas? Then the answer is No.  But then again, it really depends on your particular needs.  Call us today and allow us to earn your business and help manage your perfect vacation.
