Cabo San Lucas has become a huge tourist attraction and locals say the location is anything but remote. Timeshares are most popular at the location and their sandy beaches and clear water offer great real estate to relax and crack open a “cold one”. Most locals have learned to speak English so translators wont be required.
CABO SAN LUCAS, Mexico — While most residents of this community at the southern tip of Baja California speak Spanish and English, one sentiment you’ll hear in both languages is that things have changed and that the changes may have only begun.
Once noted for its remoteness, the area Mexicans call “Los Cabos” (The Capes) went through a boom period in the 1980s and ‘90s that saw it marketed as a spring break/party venue rival to Cancun. It is now in second boom, where filling hotel rooms for wild weekend getaways has been de-emphasized in favor of “upscale” (and frequently “up-priced”) resorts and prepaid vacation ownership.
