Cabo San Lucas Vacation Rental Locations

Cabo San Lucas is undeniably a popular destination for many tourists. It is packed with many attractions and activities distributed all over the resort city. However, if you are planning a trip to this beautiful city, it’s imperative to compare the different locations of vacation rentals. 

Different parts of Cabo San Lucas are famous for various things. To ensure your vacation is more fulfilling, it’s advisable to book a vacation rental in an area that’s more appealing to your requirements. For instance, Downtown Cabo should be your top choice if you want a vibrant nightlife. But if you prefer a quiet and luxurious neighborhood, you may want to book a villa in Montecristo. 

If this is your first time coming to Cabo for a vacation, below is a list of some popular vacation rental locations and the kind of environment you can expect from each area.

1. Downtown

Downtown is the heart of Cabo San Lucas. This part is always busy and full of activities. If you love partying, you will appreciate the nightlife in this area of the city. Downtown is also an excellent place for first-time visitors to stay. Here you can get access to authentic Mexican meals. You can also explore the local culture, such as art and crafts. 

You can explore numerous shopping centers when you book a vacation rental Downtown. This part of Cabo is perfect for young travelers or visitors who are traveling as a group of friends. This is because the nightlife can get pretty rowdy and noisy. Therefore, it’s not a great place for families and kids. 

Because it’s the heart of Cabo San Lucas, finding your way to different parts of the resort city is super easy when your vacation rental is located Downtown. The vacation rentals here tend to be smaller but adequately equipped with essential amenities. You can also find many hostels in Downtown Cabo.

2. El Tezal

El Tezal, which means the Complexion in English, is a hidden gem when it comes to vacation rental locations in Cabo San Lucas. Unlike Downtown, El Tezal is a bit more laid back and quiet. If you are visiting Cabo with your family, you will appreciate the serenity and tranquility of El Tezal. 

This part of Cabo San Lucas is a suburban residential area that neighbors the tourist corridor. It’s a safe neighborhood and is a bit far away from the crowds. As a tourist staying in a vacation rental in El Tezal, you will have access to several restaurants, such as the El Huerto Farm to Table, which strictly serves fresh food. The Plaza Nova is also close-by, and there are several means of transport. 

RCSL has two vacation rentals within El Tezal. You can opt for a Condo located in Camino Del Mar, a gated community located very close to the beach. Or a beach house in La Cima, equipped with exclusive amenities.

3. Pedregal

Also referred to as the Beverly Hills of Cabo San Lucas, this is the perfect neighborhood to book a villa if you want to enjoy a luxurious vacation in this resort city. Situated on the Pacific Coast, the Pedregal is the wealthiest neighborhood in Cabo. 

The villas here look fantastic and offer remarkable views of the Pacific Ocean. The Pedregal isn’t your typical neighborhood. If you are staying here during your vacation, you can access the organic farm market exclusively hosted within the community. The pristine sandy beaches in Pedregal are not crowded and are super clean. If you want to spend some quality time swimming or having a margarita by the beach while enjoying the sunset, Pedregal is the place to be. 

If that’s not enough, Pedregal is home to high-end restaurants such as Don Manuel’s and El Farallon. In these restaurants, you can sample both local and international cuisines such as Italian. You will also find fine wines. 

The vacation rentals in Pedregal feature exceptional amenities such as spas, fitness centers, and private pools. RSCL also has a villa worth checking out in Pueblo Bonito Montecristo, one of the posh gated estates in Pedregal. This luxury villa is equipped with a private infinity pool, butler service, and access to the Jack Nicklaus golf course. You can find more details about it here.

4. Medano

When planning the itinerary for your Cabo trip, you must have included a visit to Medano Beach. This is where all the magic happens in Cabo San Lucas. This neighborhood is the hub of a wide range of water-related activities, such as snorkeling, swimming, surfing, parasailing, and fishing. 

If you love spending time at the beach, it would be an excellent idea for you to book a vacation rental in Medano. When staying at Medano, you will enjoy drinking at the local cantinas. There are tons of water sports waiting for you a few meters from your vacation rental. 

This neighborhood is home to several restaurants serving all cuisines, from local to international. If you are lucky, you may have the opportunity to enjoy meals prepared by famous chefs. There are plenty of shops within Medano, making it easier for you to find a souvenir. If you forgot to pack sunglasses or swimwear, you wouldn’t have much trouble getting a new set. 

It’s important to note that Medano gets pretty crowded during peak season.

5. The Marina

The Marina in Cabo San Lucas isn’t only famous for yacht charters. This is also an ideal neighborhood for you to book a vacation rental. Just like Downtown, the Marina is packed with a lot of action, only that you get an endless supply of fresh air from the sea. 

Vacation rentals located in the Marina boast of stunning views of the waterfront. If you are shopping for a yacht, you can get some inspiration from the many luxury models parked here. 

The Marina wasn’t always this charming. A few years ago, the neighborhood seemed more industry-like. However, as tourism became more popular in Cabo San Lucas, this neighborhood grew to be more accommodating to visitors. 

We highly recommend staying at the Marina if you plan on doing a lot of fishing or yacht-related excursions. This destination provides access to activities such as swimming with dolphins. There are a couple of fancy bars that make the nightlife vibrant. On the other side of the Marina is a line of luxurious boutiques. Most of the vacation rentals located in the Marina are condos.

6. The Tourist Corridor

As the name implies, this is an area where many tourists love to stay. The Tourist Corridor stretches for around 20 miles to the neighboring town of San Jose del Cabo. Within the Tourist Corridor, you will find many vacation rental options, such as villas and condos. However, the most popular option in this corridor is resorts. 

Staying along the Tourist Corridor has its perks. For instance, you can visit any of the golf courses nearby. There are plenty of ATV tours in this part of Cabo San Lucas. You shouldn’t expect an active nightlife in this part of Cabo. But there are many classic restaurants where you can enjoy seafood, Mexican and Mediterranean cuisines. 

The shopping centers are a bit limited. So, if you are staying in a vacation rental at the Tourist Corridor, you may have to organize private transportation to Downtown or the Marina for a much better shopping experience. 

What’s the Best Vacation Rental Location in Cabo San Lucas?

That will depend on the type of vacation you intend to have. If you are interested in a more vibrant nightlife, you should seek accommodation in Downtown Los Cabos. For those who are visiting Cabo San Lucas for water related excursions, the Marina and Medano Beach is a good place to rent a vacation home. 

However, if you want to have a taste of Cabo’s luxury villas, you shoul consider reserving a vacation rental in high-end estates such as the Pedregal. Here, you will find cosy homes with exclusive amenities and services.
