Los Cabos Transportation



Los Cabos International Airport (SJD) serves both Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. It’s fifteen minutes’ drive from San Jose Del Cabo and 45 minutes from Cabo San Lucas. 



Immigration & Customs


When you land, you’ll see signs for the immigration line. When it’s your turn, you’ll approach the desk and the officer will ask for your passport. He/she may ask you why you’re visiting, how long you will stay and what your plans are. Regarding customs, your flight attendant will typically give you customs paper work to fill out on the plane. After you’ve been through the immigration desk at the airport and you’ve picked up your luggage from baggage claim, you’ll go to customs, where officers will possibly check your bags.


Getting to Your Hotel


CheapCaribbean.com has partnered with Amstar as our premier transportation company in Los Cabos. They’ll provide you with safe, comfortable and professional transportation from the airport to your hotel and back. They’ll also provide transportation to any excursions booked through our site that you’d like to take while you’re in your destination.


It’s easy to find your Amstar team when you arrive at the airport. They wear floral shirts. All drivers are fluent in English, friendly and knowledgeable about the culture, history and things to do while you’re there. By the end of your ride, you’ll have made a new friend. Vehicles are all clean, modern and reliable. 


Amstar is also the official transportation rep for CheapCaribbean.com excursions when you book vacations to Los Cabos on our site. The majority of our partner hotels have a Amstar desk in or near the lobby so they’re easy to find, should you need them. For this reason, we suggest that our guests do not rent cars while in the Caribbean or Mexico as traffic laws and road quality and street signs are not the same as they are in the US.


Getting Around Los Cabos


Travelers can rent a car to get Los Cabos. While car rentals are generally more expensive than back home, using this option may actually cost less than taking a taxi. If you are in the middle of the Tourist Corridor, taxis may be as high as $30 USD one way to either town. It's pretty easy to rent a car, as rental agencies are located at numerous hotels, the airport, and in both downtown areas.


If you still prefer to rent a taxi, you can easily find one in Cabo San Lucas. Many taxis around the area are large vans that can hold more than 10 passengers. Prices can vary but are generally around $7 USD a mile, but be sure to agree on the fare before you get in.  


The buses are also a very convenient way to get from Cabo San Lucas to San Jose del Cabo and the beaches and resorts in the Tourist Corridor. Three lines service the Los Cabos area - SuburCabos, InterBaja, and Transportes del Norte buses run every 15 minutes from around 5:30 AM to around 10:00 PM. Fares are generally about $2.50 USD each way from town to town; drivers will change small bills. To get to Tourist Corridor beaches, tell the driver your beach when you board.
