Los Cabos as an LGBT Vacation Destination

By Meghan Fitzpatrick

Think Los Cabos is only good for fishing and partying? Think again. Los Cabos is a community that welcomes everyone and is of growing interest as a holiday and wedding destination for lesbians, gays, bis and transgenders alike. The LGBT scene in Los Cabos is not outwardly apparent, but the two main towns of Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo are widely accepting and tolerant of all kinds of visitors, making the region an ideal LGBT holiday and wedding destination. Cabo San Lucas has the busy marina district and abundant nightlife. Should you prefer a quieter day in Los Cabos, away from a lot of the hustle and bustle of the tourists, San Jose del Cabo is a great option. Located about 20 miles away from Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo is known for its art galleries and exceptional restaurants. Don’t miss the weekly Art Walk every Thursday evening.
