Though the Los Cabos area doesn't yet have the reputation that Puerto Vallarta might have as a gay Mexican vacation mecca, it is a place of general congeniality and acceptance, and should be high on the list of destinations where gay and lesbian couples can enjoy fun, sun and world-class recreational opportunities.
Both of Los Cabos' anchors—dynamic, fun-loving Cabo San Lucas and quieter, traditional San José del Cabo—have much to offer gay travelers in the way of deluxe accommodations, world-class shopping and spas, and that unforgettable Mexican flavor and culture.
Los Cabos offers a dizzying array of choices of where to stay (and play) for LGBT visitors. Topping the list, for their stunning beauty and the alluring sense of private retreat they provide, are luxury villas. The area has a dazzling variety of such properties, almost all of which offer splendid architecture, lavish furnishings and features, and breathtaking ocean views. In the exclusive gated community of the Pedregal, sometimes referred as the "Beverly Hills" of Mexico, villas can overlook the Sea of Cortez or the Pacific, and the host of cliff-top properties are a wonder to behold. Top-of-the-line amenities, private swimming pools and gorgeous views create an luxury vacation getaway like no other.

Of course, that's not to discredit the exquisite choices in resort properties available in Los Cabos. From the sultry beachfront scene at the ME by Melia Cabo to the incomparable luxury of celebrity favorite, Las Ventanas al Paraiso, visitors will find an exquisite selection of destination resorts offering signature spas, fantastic dining and plush accommodations. Though not specifically attuned to gay visitors, Cabo's resorts are well known for exceptional service.
