Your main airport in Los Cabos is the Los Cabos International Airport (SJD). It is located just north of the Cabo San Lucas area. Depending on where you are staying, it should be around 40 minutes to an hour from the airport.
It’s convenient and easy to rent a car in Los Cabos and many opt to do so. Driving around the island is fairly easy, many resorts offer free or valet parking, and street parking is inexpensive. Renting a car is a great idea for those wanting to explore different areas of the island or those traveling in a group.
Taxi fares are also reasonable if you just need minimal transportation. If you like to explore on foot, pack comfortable walking shoes, as it’s fun and easy to walk around, but the cobblestone streets can be tiresome for the feet.
In regards to currency, Mexican pesos are the standard, but USD is widely accepted. It’s wise to carry both. Credit cards are also widely accepted and ATMs are readily available so you can withdraw pesos.
